Thanks for hanging in there with me. Lots has changed in the past few months and will continue to change. Keep on the look out for a new website in the next week or so. I will be updating everyone as it gets closer. Not much info in this post, I know, but keep an eye out!

SO October proved to be a crazy month! First, my kids book ‘Sometimes I am Scared of Zombies’ was released to the public and quickly shot to 10 in Children’s books on Amazon.com. The book has been selling like crazy and I almost sold out at Spooky Empire in Orlando! It was a great time. If you missed it, you missed the opportunity to pick up the book and get it signed by not only me, but by the illustrators as well!
Another huge thing to happen this month was the premiere of the webseries I have been writing ‘StudvilleTV’. The show is about four “studs” and their femme girls. Below is the official description. The show is a departure from my normal horror writing, but it deals with real life horror and allows me to expand beyond the normal kill ‘em stuff I usually write, plus it deals with the LGBT community, a community I fully stand behind. The link to episode 1 is below. The show will be a 10 episode season and as long as everything goes well, we will get into season 2 shortly after.

I will be making an appearance at one of my favorite conventions, Spooky Empire! I go almost every year and this year I had the pleasure of running the authors programming and I have a fantastic line up planned for everyone!! Check out this guest list:
Whew! What a line-up! There are a few of those that are more considered media guests than writers, such as Aaron Sagers, who is the host of the awesome Travel Channel show Paranormal Paparazzi. There are so many great guests and I am honored to be a part of this with them!
In movie news, Ace the Zombie will be showing two special screenings at the Plaza theater in Atlanta, one on October 21st at 9:30 PM and the second will be at October 23rd at 9:30 PM. This event/showing will help raise funds for distribution. I plan on being at the screening on October 21st and possibly the 23rd as well. SO come out and say hello and watch this funny movie!
In book news, the re-release of Z Day is Here will be out soon. There is a new cover available and some slight edits were made. I would expect it to be on Amazon any day now.
My kids picture book “Sometimes I am Scared of Zombies” will also be out soon. The illustrations have been accepted and we are just waiting for it to come out. I should have lots of copies to sell at Spooky Empire!
Anywho, that’s whats going on lately.
So someone made a comment a few days ago about me previously being associated with Living Dead Press. I am not nor have I every been with Living Dead Press. I originally had “Z Day is Here” published with Library of the Living Dead, and once the contract ended, I chose to go a different direction and we parted on very good terms.
Secondly, I moderate every comment that comes in to this page, so if you are here to bash myself or any or the readers, it will simply go into the trash pile, especially if you do not give your real name.
Criticism is good and makes me a better writer and opens others eyes to your point of view, but making fun of people is not acceptable on this page.
Now having said that, go check out my review of the Mayhem Fest on the From Dusk Till Con website.
Also, got word that the Illustrations for my kids book are almost finished, so we are getting closer and closer. Very excited for everyone to read it and see the fantastic drawings!
Just wanted to drop a quick note. I will be at the Mayhem fest in Atlanta tomorrow 7/14/2012. I’ll be doing interviews for a new blog section on www.fromdusktillcon.com, where I will be doing concert reviews and interviews with some of your favorite bands. I have been doing movie reviews for a while now and think it is time to jump into something else for a bit to help my ADHD.
For my other writing, I have a lot going on. I am currently writing two ghost screenplays. One will be a short film based on my short story ‘No More Forgiveness’ and will be directed by Bruce Downs and Mile 29 films. Mile 29 films did a ‘Don’t Do Drugs’ Zombie PSA that I helped write, so I fully trust the crew to get the right feel of the ghost story. The second one is a little too far off from being completed, so I’ll keep that info to myself for now. Also, my Zombie Kids story is coming along nicely. I have seen a few of the sketches and am really getting excited for this to be released. I am hoping for a release date before October.
Speaking of October, I will be at Spooky Empire Convention once again, but this time I will be running the authors programming. I have a TON of great guests lined up and will begin announcing them as I get some of the contracts back and finalize things. Yep, lots going on in this little writing world of mine!
My short ghost story is now availabe in the Amazon Kindle store for $.99.
I am very proud of this short story and want to share it with the world, so go get it.
Since Ace the Zombie is wandering around this fine country, I’ll try to remember to announce when and where you can watch this work of art.
Currently we will be showing Ace the Zombie at the first Horror Convention to come to Atlanta ‘Days of the dead II: Atlanta’ http://www.daysofthedead.net/atlanta/. The director (Giles aka The DeVille) and myself will be presenting the movie. The showing will be at 6PM on Friday March 9th. Come out and show your support for all things zombie and all things indy films. If you are one of the lucky ones to have a copy of Z Day is Here, bring it and I’ll sign it free of charge! This movie was a lot of fun to make and is a lot of fun to watch, but please don’t bring your kids, as I have a potty mouth and it really shows in the script.
Speaking of potty mouth, I will also be a guest on Pop Odyssey radio This coming Tuesday night (2/21/2012) at 9pm Eastern. You can get to it by following this link:
You can (and are encouraged to) call in to the radio show to ask questions or make comments. Since I am not a very entertaining person, I request everyone call in as much as possible. The number is 615-866-1323 or 888-375-3123. I am told that the lines fill up quickly, so make sure you get in early and keep the number on speed dial. I plan on spilling the beans on some secret projects that I have been doing all ninja style, so be sure to listen to the entire two hours.
In Z Day News, the short film is moving forward and gaining steam. After the script changing hands numerous times, it has landed back in my grubby sausage fingers. I will be making my directorial debut with this short film. Keep an eye out for more information on casting and the perrills of making a short film.
There is a teaser movie poster floating around that I will be posting below for your entertainment. This is just a teaser, but I think you can really get the feeling of the movie based on it.
As always, feel free to email me. I try to answer all my emails.
The time has come for the world premiere of the feature film Ace the Zombie that I co-wrote. It has beena few years in the making, but it will finally be seen by the public. The premiere is happening at The Plaza theater in Atlanta Sunday Jan. 22nd at 9pm. Tickets will be sold and arm bands given starting around 8pm. Before the movie, there will be a short Q&A with myself and others involved with the film. Proceedes will go towards saving the Plaza. Come on out and show your support for indy film in Atlanta. Plus you will see me limping around…what fun
