Release Day Blitz – Honor (Book 5 NOLA Zombie Series) by Gillian Zane

Today I’m taking part in the Release Day Blitz for Gillian Zane’s new book! If it sounds like something you might enjoy, check it out. And be sure to enter the giveaway below!   The NOLA Zombie series comes to a close with this emotional and action-packed installment. Since the SHTF, Romeo is good at one thing, killing zombies. He doesn’t want to waste his time with anything else. His fellow survivors think of him as a machine and he’s fine with that. There isn’t any time to waste on things, like feelings, or other nonsense. Lena Dervay, former movie star, current walking victim has barely been surviving in a repurposed middle school run by an incompetent Army Lieutenant. She and her group of survivors are as good as dead if they stay put.  When Lena finally gets in touch with Romeo, she knows that if anyone can come in and save the day, it’s him. Problem is, Romeo isn’t the charming, white knight, hero that she remembers. Lena is still drawn to him, though, and as their paths intersect she knows she might not come out intact in the end, body or soul.     Gillian Zane is the author of the NOLA Zombie series. Zane is the pen name of a prominent blogger in the publishing industry, which will remain a mystery unless you Google it. Since she can remember her goal has been to become Master of the Universe and has decided to focus first on the literary world. Things are progressing nicely. Zane has been a freelance writer for the last ten years and has published a few non-fiction works, none of which was very exciting. Zombies are much more exciting and a way for her to combine her two current obsessions, hot boys with guns and Doomsday Prepping. When she isn’t stockpiling MREs (Meal’s Ready to Eat) or researching how to build a cistern on a budget, she’s taking care of her little family and exploring the city that she loves, New Orleans.

Cover Reveal – Infinite Possibilities

Cover Reveal – Infinite Possibilities

Posted by on May 3, 2016 in Author, Blog Events, Cover Reveal |

Today I get to bring you a cover reveal for a new anthology of YA/NA short stories, brought to you by a group of great people. Check it out below and if you have some time, share the link with your friends! Infinite Possibilities “Pounding from the front door echoed across the room, drowning out the sound of the rain pelting against the window.”    T.J. Burton, Mireille Chester, Robbie Cox, Maggie Dallen, Taylor Dawn, Brandy Jellum, and S.L. Stacker, the authors of Infinite Possibilities, take that sentence and deliver to you seven unique YA/NA short stories filled with romance, action, fantasy, and the paranormal. Individual Story Synopses Medium by T.J. Burton ONE LINE BLURB: Jocelyn Sinclair can see and talk to the dead, but can she help the nephew of the handsome stranger who shows up at her door? FULL SYNOPSIS: Jocelyn Sinclair had known since she was a small girl that she was different. Many called it a gift but she often wondered if it was a curse. Talking to and seeing the dead came at a heavy price. It made it nearly impossible to live a normal life. It did allow her to help people both alive and dead and for that she was thankful. When Ethan knocks on her door on a dark, rainy night, she knows she has to help him. He is as desperate as he is handsome. The spirit that haunts his nephew is stronger than Jocelyn has ever faced before. Can she do it? Tears of the Moons by Mireille Chester ONE LINE BLURB: A search for a lost dog sends Kendra into a world she never knew existed. Will she survive when all she has to rely on is an injured man? FULL SYNOPSIS: When Kendra is woken in the middle of a storm by her neighbor, Sara, the last thing she wants to do is search for the child’s missing dog. After safely locating Max and returning home, Kendra is forced back into the storm to find her phone she dropped during the search. Soaked and nearly frozen from her first outing, the last thing she wants to do is go back out. As she retraces her steps, she soon learns her phone isn’t the only thing she will find. Add in an injured man, a pack of wolves that want them dead, and a new world she never knew existed, Kendra finds herself overwhelmed. It isn’t long before Kendra realizes she knows nothing about this new world, and if she doesn’t keep the injured man alive, she’ll be left to die herself. Enter the Witch by Robbie Cox ONE LINE BLURB: Amber Bastian strives to help Jasmine Burkehart rescue a friend from a spell gone awry as a skittish ghost, Cletus, cautions her about the danger of being a witch. FULL SYNOPSIS: Enter the Witch sets the stage...

Consuming Worlds Blogging Anniversary

Consuming Worlds Blogging Anniversary

Posted by on Jul 27, 2014 in Blog Events, Blogger, Interviews, Matty Says, Random | 3 comments

So my fellow blogger and author, Danielle with Consuming Worlds is hosting her Blogging Anniversary today, and I can’t tell you how honored I am to be a part of it. She’s doing something special this year, and rather just promoting authors and books she enjoys, we’re digging a little deeper. Today we’re talking about ourselves as people, not just writers and creators who have uncontrollable alter-egos that like to make up stories. Today we get real, and I dig deep. I wanted to really contribute something true and honest to this post, and I had to go under the skin for it. There’s no fluffy sparkles or humor in today’s post, but it’s real, it’s honest, and it’s the side nobody gets to see from the other side of the monitor. So let’s head over to Consuming Worlds and check out my guest post in celebration of Danielle’s Blogoversary. And congratulations to her on how far she’s come in this short time. When I first met Danielle she didn’t have a blog, and now she’s celebrating an anniversary, as well as her first recently published book, Guided. Happy Blogoversary,...

I’m Still Here!

I’m Still Here!

Posted by on Jun 24, 2014 in Blog Events, News, Publishing, Random, Writing | 3 comments

Wow, okay, so it’s been over two months since I posted, and a month since I was able to add any wordage to Sacred Cities, but I’m back up and running. With a brand new computer glowing on my desk, I’m ready to go. It’s not that my other computer was broken or inoperable, it’s just that I hated it. I’d given a serious and honest effort to the Mac, but I just couldn’t do it. I’m back to PC and I’m loving it. Now, before all the Mac junkies come out and bite me, the computer itself was great. It’s incredibly fast, even after 18 months, but the OS just isn’t for me. It’s nothing against the Mac product, just that it isn’t what I am looking for. Now I’m sporting a new Toshiba all-in-one that makes my inner geek really happy, and I’m ready to get back to work. In the midst of my computer change, there was also a job change, and a trip to Seattle where I attended the Emerald City Author Event for my first group signing. Seattle was a really cool city. We did all the touristy things we could do, and I learned Seattle has quite the history, one that was shared with us by probably the coolest tour guide ever. But more on that later in a separate Seattle-only post. Right now is update time. The first draft of Sacred Cities is nearly complete. I’m hoping that by the end of next month I’ll be deep into revisions. I’m currently working with the incredible Parajunkee on the cover, and all-in-all I’m hoping to have it all available for you late this Fall. Much later than I had anticipated, of course, but the first book in the series requires a bit more attention to lay the groundwork for what’s to come. I apologize for the wait on the book, and the blog silence, but it’ll all be worth it! Now, what’s to come? I’m going to be revamping the blog design here in the next month or two, revealing the cover for Sacred Cities once I have it, posting some new short stories up on the website, and working on two different standalone novels as well. Aside from the short stories, the blog posts are going to change a little too. Right now they’re very much just updates, teasers, etc. I won’t tell you exactly how they’re going to change yet, but the changes are going to be awesome and take a big turn toward creative writing and sharing some different things with you! Prepare for the...

Holiday Update

Holiday Update

Posted by on Feb 9, 2014 in Author, Blog Events, News, Publishing, Writing | 2 comments

As promised, I got down to business on my holidays. It was later than I had hoped, but word count is word count, right? After what I can only describe as an amazing trip to Canmore, I felt very refreshed. My wife and I ended up staying an extra night, and it was beautiful there. This was the view from our hotel balcony. I can promise you that this picture doesn’t do it justice. It’s a small town, but man, it was beautiful up there. Surprisingly, it was warmer and there was less snow than here in Red Deer. Huh. After we came home I had to spend a few days getting some things in order, but then I got down to work. I had two decent days, putting down 14,000 words in my new novel, which in case you missed my Facebook post, is tentatively titled Sacred Cities. This a Post-Apocalyptic Urban Fantasy, and I think you’re going to love it. At least I hope you do. No, I mean I know you will. Ah, yes, such is the flippity-floppity of a writer. I’ve added two new events to my upcoming Events page. I’m going to be in my locals Chapters on March 29th to do a book signing. I’ll be there from 12pm-4pm, and if you’re anywhere in the local area, I’d love for you to come down and say “hello!” If that’s a bit of a trek, I’ll also be in Seattle, at the Red Lion hotel on 5th Avenue on June 14th. If you’re anywhere in the area then and you want to meet up, check out the website and get tickets. It’s a multi-author signing and there are going to be a ton of great people there. It’s something I definitely do not want you to miss if at all possible. And I think I’m going to spend a few days just checking out the area afterwards, because Seattle is a city I’ve always wanted to visit, so going there for the first time will be a blast. I’ve had a Newsletter sign-up sheet in the top right corner of my blog for quite some time now, but I haven’t actually been using it. I was having some trouble with the provider and whatnot, all of which has now been ironed out. My first News Letter will be coming out at the end of February, so sign up if you’re interested in some special news and exclusive content. I’m not going to be posting many novel sneak peeks on the website, so if you want to see them all, be sure to sign up. Speaking of sneak peaks. Laura at Little Read Riding Hood has the first chapter of my current work-in-progress, Sacred Cities going up on her blog on February 21st. This is the world’s first look at my new project, and I really...
