Apocalypse Monday

Rather than posting apocalyptic artwork, this is a photograph of the largest nuclear detonation in history. The Soviet Union conducted the nuclear test on the Novaya Zemlya archipelago on 30 October 1961. The device, known as the Tsar Bomba, provided a yield of 50 megatons, which is equivalent to approximately 1500 atomic bombs like the one dropped on Hiroshima or ten times the combined energy all the conventional weapons used during World War II. The mushroom cloud seen in this photo climbed 95 kilometers into the sky.

In Honor of Our Fallen Soldiers

Isiah 6:8 -- Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?"  And I said, "Here I am.  Send me!"

May we all take a few moments today to remember the brave American men and women who said "Send me" and who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

Happy Mother's Day

I know I post this every Mother's Day, but it's a classic. And my mother gets all the references (after all, she raised a Monster Kid). .

Cover Reveal, Release Information for Rotter Nation

Rotter Nation, the much-awaited sequel to Rotter World, is scheduled for release on 15 June 2015!!!

Despite being nine months into a zombie apocalypse, life had taken a fortunate turn for Mike Robson and Natalie Barzagan. Not only had their group retrieved the vaccine for the Zombie Virus from the underground military facility at Site R, they had found love with each other. That optimism is short-lived. When the group returns to its camp, a rape gang has destroyed the compound, murdered their friends, and kidnapped one of the young women. 

With everything they have achieved now destroyed, Robson makes the fateful decision to split his group. As he organizes a desperate attempt to rescue their friend from the rape gang, Natalie leads her Angels through a rotter-infested nation to bring the vaccine to the government-in-exile on Omaha.

Both groups soon discover that everything that has happened to them up to now cannot compare with the horrors they are about to encounter.

The Kindle version of Rotter Nation is available for pre-order from Amazon. The trade paperback version will be available soon.

Continue following my blog for contests and giveaways associated with the book's release.

I Will Not Be Attending Spooky Mayhem 15-17 May

Unfortunately, due to personal circumstances beyond my control, I will not be able to attend Spooky Mayhem in Orlando on the weekend of 15-17 May. I feel really bad about this because I love the Spooky conventions, and some awesome people show up at these. 

I still will be attending the Walker Stalker Convention in Orlando 27-28 June, Spooky Empire in October, and the Champion City Comic Con in November.
