My Latest Book Has Arrived

So, on May 30th, my latest novel Dead: Winter became available for sale on Already, the gears are turning for book five (Wowzers!) and the directions it might go. I say might because I am one of those writers who HATES (yep...I meant it in all caps) outlines. I believe they can make a story linear. I like spontaneous changes in direction. My thoughts are that, if I didn't see it coming, chances are that neither did you.

So, as I spend a few days basking in the post-release glow, my guilty pleasure is checking my KDP page for sales info. So, far, I have not been disappointed. I may not be breaking any records, but it was great to see my book open to double-digit sales.

Tomorrow, things begin in earnest...The Summer of Zombie Blog Tour kicks off and NaNoWriMo begins. No rest for the wicked. Also...I just started and I already have my first "Guest Post. Straight from the aforementioned tour...June 3rd you will be treated to the musings of John O'Brien.

Since this is a new thing for me, you'll have to give me some time to gather my legs underneath me. Now...I am off to try out my brand new Barbecue Grill. Ahhh...the joys of Summer.

Starting June 1st, I will be participating in my SECOND NaNoWriMo. This time, I am returning to what my small legion of fans have asked for...Zomblog.

I will be writing the fourth book in the series titled Zomblog: Snoe. So at least I will have something to share. Also, starting now, all of my "Brutally Honest Book Reviews" entries will be shared here.

Another note, starting June 1st, I will also be kicking of the "Summer of Zombie Blog Tour" with Armand Rosamilia, Mark Tufo, Ian Woodhead, John O' Brien, and Dave Jeffrey.

Strap in and see if I just disintegrate from over-commitment.


So, everybody else has one...I guess it is time to jump on the bandwagon. A lot of this will be trial and error, so be patient.

I will be posting in between trying to get my GIANT TBR list read and reviewed for Brutally Honest Reviews over on Facebook, writing my next book (currently preparing to start on the fourth Zomblog installment titled Zomblog: Snoe) and editing numerous projects both inside and outside of May December Publications.

I hope you will hang around and see what happens when a self-employed writer embarks on his first Blog tour. Tell your friends, have them sign up to follow. Who knows...I may even do the occasional "give away" as a promotional hook to bring in more readers.
