Finishing Up Book 2!

I'm working on finishing up book 2 for my November 1st deadline so I'm going to be out of commision for the next two weeks. I'll be back Monday, November 5th (probably after sleeping for five days straight).

I'll still be around on twitter and commenting on blogs though, so if you spot me, yell at me to get back to work :)

October = Zombie Love

The Walking Dead was back on Sunday with an awesome new episode…and I also got the 8th installment in the Walking Dead comic book series.


October is a great month for zombies, and I recently watched a few movies that I’d never seen before. Each of these is a unique take on the genre.


Fido –Timmy is delighted with the family's first zombie, whom he names Fido. Fido becomes Timmy's best friend, and runs afoul of prejudice, circumstance, hardware faults in the Zomcon collars, and neighborhood bullies.


Undead – A quaint Australian fishing village is overcome by meteorites that turn its residents into the ravenous undead, leaving a small group of those unharmed to find a way out.


Survival of the Dead – On an island off the coast of North America, local residents simultaneously fight a zombie epidemic while hoping for a cure to return their un-dead relatives back to their human state.


Has anyone seen any of these? What did you think…or do you have a favorite that you want to recommend?

Swag 101

In dealing with Classof2K13 there was a lot of debate about what swag items are actually effective marketing devices for books/authors. I would like to have bookmarks to give out for my book…but what else would be good to have?

What swag items do you hold on to and which do you toss?
What’s the best swag item you’ve ever gotten?

In the Home Stretch(ish)

I’m now on part three of the three part book two. It feels really amazing to have book two almost completed. I know (just like with In the After) they’ll be edits, line edits, copy edits, galley pages, and a million other things I have to do before it’s ready, but right now it feels really good to have a story on paper (or more accurately, on monitor).

Where is everyone at with their WIPs?

I’m still over at @TheClassof2K13 on twitter today, so come check us out.

Back Friday!
