Upcoming Events and Releases

I have a lot of releases and events scheduled for the next few months. Below is what I have so far.

Book releases:

Nurse Alissa vs. the Zombies II: Escape was released on 15 June on Kindle and Kindle Unlimited. Nurse Alissa III and Nurse Alissa IV are in various stages of the writing process with tentative release dates set for 1 August and 15 September, respectively. Print versions of the series are in the production phase; with luck, the paperback editions of Nurse Alissa vs. the Zombies and Nurse Alissa II will be available before the release of Nurse Alissa III.

Shattered World III: China is also in the final production phase and is scheduled for release 1 July, just in time for holiday reading. For those who didn't know, the Shattered World series was originally published as the Hell Gate saga by Burning Willow Press under my pseudo Josh Matthews. That series was never completed because Burning Willow Press, sadly, had to close its door. With the release of Shattered World III: China, the first three novels in the series will be back in print.

Shattered World IV: Japan and Shattered World V: Hell, tentatively scheduled for 1 September and 15 November, respectively, will conclude the series. This will be the first time both books will be published. I'm excited about this.


As we all know, conventions were impacted big time by COVID-19, with most being canceled and only a few having been rescheduled. Remember, though, this is the horror/SciFi/fantasy community so a little thing like a pandemic may slow us down but can't stop us. There are numerous on-line events taking place over the next few months, and I'm fortunate enough to be part of a few  of them.

From 19-28 June, Reading Zombie will be hosting a daily takeover of various zombie writers to help David Simpson fund his movie trailer for Zombie Road. Some of the speakers scheduled so far are Angel Ramon (19 June), Chris Philbrook (23 June), and myself (27 June). Reading Zombie always puts on epic events.

From 14-16 August, I'll also be attending Zombie-Con Online, a virtual reality zombie convention. Presented via Zoom, the event will feature nearly a dozen panel discussions on a variety of relevant topics, from zompoc world building to the female writers of zombiedom. In addition, there will be several “Meet the Authors” sessions, providing the opportunity to chat with some of your favorite zombie writers.

With luck, I'll be attending other cons this fall, especially Salem Horrorfest. I'll let you know as things develop.
