Good luck to everyone who enters.

Giveaway Contest: Machina Mortis, Hunger Pangs, Dead Water

Are you thinking to yourself, "Wouldn't it be awesome if someone wrote a steampunk story involving zombies?"  Or have you ever prayed for a living dead apocalypse so you could join in the fun and satisfy your curiosity about the taste of human flesh?  Or are you just craving a good, old-fashioned slow-zombie story?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you came to the right place.

In honor of Zombie Awareness Month, and to celebrate the recent publication of my latest zombie-related short stories, I am sponsoring a giveaway of two trade paperback and two e-book versions of the anthologies Hunger Pangs (which contains my short story "The Hunger") and Machina Mortis: Steampunk'd Tales of Terror (which contains my short story "Last Flight of the Bismarck"), as well as two e-book versions of my zombie novella Dead Water

The rules are simple.  Follow my blog and like my author's page on Facebook (if you already have done that, then you are half-way there).  Then leave a comment under this posting or on my Facebook posting saying you would like to enter, and please let me know if you have a preference of which anthology/novella you would like.  The contest will stay open until 31 May, at which point I will randomly choose the winners and will contact you for mailing information.  One set of books will be given away on each site, so you double your chances of winning.  This contest is open to everyone.

I know you're all chomping at the flesh, so hurry up and enter.  And good luck.

So What Have I Been for the Past Three Weeks?

Writing.  I've made some significant headway on Rotter World II.  Over the past three weeks, I have written over 25,000 words, and am hoping to have the first draft completed and out to my beta readers by the end of the month.  Then I intend to spend the next few months finishing the final draft of Hell Gate (which has already garnered interest from a literary agent I know) as well as begin plotting the last book in the Rotter World trilogy and my next series about OSS officers in World War II battling Nazi occultism (yes, there will be Nazi zombies).  

Conventio wise, me and fiance/fellow author Alison Beightol will be attending the Spooky Mayhem Convention at the Rosen Centre in Orlando, Florida, from 24-26 May.  Sadly, Norman Reedus had to cancel due to prior commitments for AMC, but there are still plenty of other celebrity guests.  I will also be attending the Eyecon Convention at the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia from 14-16 June where the focus this year will be on zombies, in particular The Walking Dead.  And if all goes well, I plan to attend the InfectScrantion convention in September plus more. 

And check back on Tuesday with this site and/or my Facebook author's page when I will be conducting a contest to win trade paperback and e-book versions of the latest anthologies I am included in.
