The Year of the (zombie) Monkey!

Happy Chinese New Year! Just wanted to make a quick note that CYP#4, PATHOGENS, is coming along nicely. It’ll be available summer 2016, so get excited!


Thanks for reading! What do YOU think? Anyone out there as excited as I am?

CYP#4: Hefty Complete!

Three for three! Hefty’ story is complete. This is by far the fastest storyline I’ve written. I’m thinking that’s a good thing too.

Your (second) favorite zombie-slaying redneck is ready for you to take a walk through the wastelands in his shoes!

Up next? Tyberius.

Inspiration: Life After Disney

I’m still hard at work with INFECTED: Origins (which I think is called PATHOGENS now), and one of the things I find visually fascinating about the apocalypse is abandoned theme parks. So…one of your choices will lead you exploring a derelict carnival.

Here’s a few shots that will help inspire that sequence. Some are from digital artists, some are from real abandoned parks. All images are hyperlinked to where I found them on the internet and I don’t claim to own any copyrights. Enjoy!

Yeah, I know…Zombieland. But I don’t care. It’s just a vignette, not the whole book. What do YOU think?

PATHOGENESIS! Or, what’s in a name?

I’m considering a new title for the next book. I’ve mentioned in another post that it’s another zombie tale, and was tentatively titled, “INFECTED: Origins”

Now I’m thinking, “PATHOGENS.”

I like it as a title because it’s a disease vector, as in, how an infection starts. After all, this is a prequel. Also, it would be my first plural title, because it’s the first disparate story, with plural protagonists. And…you know…paths. Choices. Get it?

I may still keep the other as a subtitle. “PATHOGENS: INFECTED Origins” or something like that.

What do YOU think?

The Future, Origins, Ramblings, and Shamblings

What’s new? Quite a bit with me, as it turns out.

May was a huge month in the world of Click Your Poison, with a new book launch, and a $0.99 sale for the series. In fact, I had over a thousand ebook sales on Amazon for the month! Weee! (SUPERPOWERED is still on sale for the next two weeks).

I also did a live interview/chat on google+ which you can watch a recording of below. In it, I announced my plans for the next book, which I’ll go more into after the jump.

For CYP#4, I’m returning to the storyworld of INFECTED. You’ll get to play as the supporting cast from the original, to survive the initial outbreak from each of their perspectives. While it’s technically a prequel, I think of it more as a sister story, and you don’t need to have INFECTED memorized to enjoy INFECTED Origins.

For me, I see it as a challenge as a writer and an opportunity to grow. I’ve tried to keep out of your head and did my best to keep telling-you-what-you’re-thinking to a minimum, and to make the protagonist’s age, gender, and race as neutral as I can so you could better delve into the story as a reader.

But not with this book. Each character has a rich background with firm viewpoints about the world. So you’ll get to Being John Malkovich the story and ride along in someone else’s head. Crazy? Maybe. We’ll see.

Stay tuned for updates as the book comes along. I probably won’t have room for every single character in the book, so expect cast announcements as well. If there’s someone you think is a must-have for the book, let me know in the comments below.

Also on the horizon: I’ll be updating my events tab soon, with a confirmed signing in Central Texas this summer, and possibly here in Denver (SUPERPOWERED just got accepted at the Tattered Cover Bookstore — yay!)

Oh, and I’m doing a rafflecopter contest thinger too. Check it out: a Rafflecopter giveaway.
