Status Update

There's a lot to catch up on since Blogger exiled me, so let's jump right in.

Two of my short stories have been accepted for publication in upcoming anthologies being published by Knightwatch Press.  "The Last Flight of the The Bismarck," about an outbreak of steampunk zombies aboard an airship over New York City, will be featured in Machina Mortis: Steampunk'd Tales of Terror.  "The Hunger," about cannibalism during a zombie apocalypse (as if the possibility of being eaten by zombies wasn't bad enough), will appear in their Cannibal Anthology.  The dates of publication are not set yet; I'll let you know when they are.  In the meantime, please check out the links to see a list of the other great authors who will also be featured in the anthologies. 

I'm also very excited about the two conventions I'll be attending in the next few months.  The first is InfectScranton from 21-23 September.  I'll be there with fellow Permuted Press authors Jacqueline Druga and Kim Paffenroth.  Other guests include stars from AMC's The Walking Dead (including Addy Miller, the "little girl zombie" from the first episode, and Madison Lintz, who played Sofia) as well as several stars from Romero's Night of the Living Dead and Day of the Dead (Judith "Barbara" Odea, Leonard "machete head zombie" Lies, Sharon "nurse zombie" Ceccatti (Hill), and Jim "helicopter zombie" Krut) plus many more guests.  Though I'm not at liberty to divulge any details, I can say that the concept of this convention will be unlike any other I've been at.  If you're in the area that weekend, it's definitely worth your time to swing on by and get infected.

From 19-21 October I'll be in Fort Meyers, Florida, attending Zombicon 2012.  In addition to fellow Permuted Press author Jacqueline Druga, attendees will include and Joe Schreiber, author of the Star Wars' zombie novel Death Troopers, many cast members from Romero's Day of the Dead (Lori Cadille, Gary Klar, Joe Pilato, and Terry Alexander), plus several other special guests.  This promises to be an epic event. 

From 22 October to 30 November I will be engaged in a six week blog tour with Innovative Online Book Tours for The Vampire Hunters trilogy.  This will include a series of interviews, reviews, guest blogs, and a chance to win a free Kindle.  Every day of the tour I'll post both here and on Facebook where I'll be appearing, so please be sure to drop by and visit.

I have several other things in the works, but I won't post about those until they're finalized.

So it's going to be a busy two months for me.  I hope to see you all at the conventions or on the blog tour.  And thanks for following me.
