And speaking of paperback books, if you’re interested in having me scribble on a book (or three), and happen to be in central Texas, come on by Hastings in Killeen for my August 8th signing!

Pub Crawl Z

In case you missed it, zombies descended upon San Luis Obispo, California in horde-like numbers.

I was taken aback by all the new people in INFECTED t-shirts, one of whom sold the shirt off his back to some tourists–I’m so proud….

What a great way to celebrate my one-year anniversary(ish) as a published author!

Now, without further ado, here are the shots from the event:

The Asynchronous Team 5k

It’s a funny name, but here’s what it is: a 5k run/walk race without any physical location.  I’m inviting friends, family, readers, followers, and first time visitors to the site to join up and run a race together.

This is how I train. Better bring your A-game.

http://www.jamesschannep.com is hosted by WordPress, who’s hosting something they call the  Automattic Worldwide WP 5k:

WHAT IT IS: A 5k run/walk (approximately 3.1 miles). You can run, walk, or skip. It’s up to you. There’s no time limit and there’s just one requirement: that you participate! You can do it inside or outside, on a treadmill or on a track, or even do a swim or a bike ride instead of running/walking – just get moving!

A 5k is roughly equal to:

  • 3.1 miles
  • 12 laps around a track
  • approximately 6000-7500 steps
  • approximately 50-60 minutes of brisk walking

Here’s what makes it cool & unique: I’ll be running with my family in TX, my friends and fellow writers in CA (and worldwide), my fiance Michaela and her flight who’re training at Maxwell AFB, AL.  I’m even going to pressure people living abroad to join in (you hear me Sam and Brian?!).  And I want to invite you too.

All you have to do is move 3.1 miles, any time on the 29th of April.  That’s two weeks from now.  I know, I’ve been slacking too, so we’d better get a few training runs in.  Because the winner (we’re on the honor system here, people) will get a $10 gift certificate to Amazon.com.

Ten-Dollar Holler!

Find a route around you (www.mapmyrun.com), pick a time to race (anytime on April 29th), take a picture of yourself/your team on race day, and send me your photos & race times.  Results will be posted on this site and the #1 racer of each gender (go Michaela!) will get a $10 gift certificate.  And remember, this is for posterity, so…be honest.

Interested?  Hit me up with a comment below or drop me a line to let me know you’re in or for more info/questions.
