Zombie Fiend Is Giving Away Two Copies of Rotter Nation

My good friends at Zombie Fiend are running a contest until 11 July to give away two autographed copies of Rotter Nation. To enter, follow these two simple steps:

1) If you have not already done so, like my Facebook author's page.

2) Go to the Zombie Fiend website and answer the following:

Scenario: You survived the zombie apocalypse and now live in a large compound that is well stocked and well-defended. A scientist shows up at your compound and says he has a vaccine for the zombie virus that will give the survivors the ability to immunize themselves against zombie bites and allow them to wage war against the living dead. However, it is in an underground military bunker five hundred miles away, and the chances of retrieving the vaccine and getting it to the right people are minimal. 

Question: Do you take the risk in the slim hope that what is left of the world can be saved, or do you stay where you are and ride out the apocalypse from the safety of your compound?

Two winners will be drawn at random on 12 July. Good luck.

For those who want to know more about me, please check out Zombie Fiend's interview where I discuss zombies, the writing process, and future projects.

Apocalypse Monday

With all the rain we've had in Florida this week, a flooded Miami seems more and more possible.

Apocalypse Monday

I'm going retro this morning and posting some artwork of what the end would have looked like in the mid-1950s.

Apocalypse Monday

My biggest phobia is being on a bridge and having it collapse. Few bridges feed better into that phobia than the Golden Gate Bridge.

It's Official!! Rotter Nation Is Now Available for Kindle and as a Trade Paperback

Rotter Nation, the second book in the Rotter World saga, is now available for Kindle or as a trade paperback

I know it's been a long wait to get Rotter Nation into print, and I appreciate the patience of my fans who have been anxiously waiting to see how the survivors from the first book make out following their journey down to Site R. The wait is over!

Despite being nine months into a zombie apocalypse, life has taken a fortunate turn for Mike Robson and Natalie Bazargan. Not only has their group retrieved the vaccine for the Zombie Virus from the underground military facility at Site R, they have found love with each other. That optimism is short-lived. When the group returns to its base camp, they discover that 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 and the surviving vampires organize 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 in Omaha.

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

You can read an excerpt from Rotter Nation here.

As part of the official launch of the novel, from 15-30 June I'm running a Goodreads giveaway of ten autographed copies of Rotter Nation.

Finally, as promised earlier, I'm providing a sneak peek of the cover art for the last book in the trilogy, Rotter Apocalypse, which is scheduled for release 1 October. Many thanks to Zach McCain for the work he did on the this and the Rotter Nation cover.

Good luck for those of you who enter the giveaway. For those who read Rotter Nation, please do a struggling writer a favor and post a review on Amazon. Thanks and enjoy.

Apocalypse Monday

I thought I would take a humorous approach to today's Apocalypse Monday photo. If you can't laugh at the end of the world, then what can you laugh at?

Announcing the Book Launch for Rotter Nation for 15 June

Please join me on 15 June to participate in the book launch of Rotter Nation, the second novel in the Rotter World trilogy. The event will include a Goodreads giveaway of ten autographed copies of the book, an interview and giveaway being run by Zombiefiend, and a sneak peek at the cover for the final chapter in the trilogy--Rotter Apocalypse, which is scheduled to be released in October 2015.

The Kindle version of Rotter Nation is available for pre-order on Amazon.

Rotter Nation promises to be much darker and more disturbing than Rotter World. The survivors from the first book arrive back at Fort McHenry to find that it has been destroyed by a rape gang, and that Windows has been kidnapped. As Mike Robson leads one group in  a desperate attempt to rescue Windows and get revenge on those who murdered their friends, Natalie Bazargan takes her Angels on a cross-country journey to bring the Zombie Virus vaccine to the government-in-exile in Omaha; however, the Angels soon find out that the trip down to Site R ill prepared them for the horrors they will face in the American heartland. You can read an excerpt from Rotter Nation here.

See you all on 15 June.

Apocalypse Monday

This time we'll go to Bavaria and let Munich take the brunt of the apocalypse. This is Mareienplatz, with the Rathaus directly behind the square and the Frauenkirche in the background.
