New Zombie Books: “RISE: Anthology of the Undead…”

If you are a fan of zombies, then I am pleased to announce that I have a brand new undead tale about parenthood, life after death, belonging, and unrequited love, in Wicked Shadow Press’s debut anthology: “RISE: Anthology of the Undead.” Interesting lineup of authors here, and some really interesting and original zombie stories. 250 Pages, Edited by Parth Sarathi Chakraborty, and available in paperback and in digital format (Kindle Unlimited). It is available in the US and UK, not sure, but maybe India too. Wicked Shadow Press is a new small press publisher mostly specializing in horror. Links and pics below with info.

When Herbert was told he had amnesia, he knew things were bad.  When he couldn’t feel anything below the waist, he got scared.  When the doctor told him he’d be paralyzed for life, he got depressed and wanted to die.  After all, no one wants to be a paraplegic.  But what made him crippled so suddenly? Did somebody do this to him? And if so, why? Now in the hospital, undergoing intensive surgery, little does Herbert know that the force responsible isn’t done with him, not by a long shot! Something’s coming back.  There’s a little unfinished business to take care of, and it comes in the form of vampires.

Midnight Horror, January-Feb. 2008… (appearances)

This one must have skipped my mind.  Midnight Horror is a small amateur-paying webzine, put out by a free web host (Fortunecity), and features a decent line-up of authors.  The reading is free for the picking, so why not check them out? I have a short in it called Zombie Camp. 


MIDNIGHT HORROR – January/February 2008



Fiction Page:

Featuring Fiction by: Tom Conoboy, Jonathan Daniel, Herbert Tinsley, Nathan Tyree, Tracie McBride, R.S. Pyne, Tom Johnstone, Brian G. Ross, Dawn Sholun, Sophie Bachard, Eric S. Brown, Guy Belleranti, David Byron, John Towler, Lawrence Dagstine, and Aurelio Rico Lopez III. 


In other news, I guess you can see that I’ve changed my blog template.  It looks more like a regular website now, which was the feel I was going for to celebrate over 10,000 hits in just a few months time.  I’m sure those are not all unique hits, but it’s still pretty decent in my opinion.  Another reason is because change is always needed when something big and wonderful is about to happen not too far down the road. Could it have something to do with my new Lightning Source book account to retrieve authors for pay rates of 3 to 7 cents per word? Does it mark the beginning of my small press art gig, Soberiffic? Editing services? A recent book deal? A crossover to non-fiction? Wait, 300 publishing credits is coming to you, ain’t it? Well, yes, it is.  Soon.  That will probably be a blog entry by itself; and it’s pretty obvious this site will be under heavy renovation for some time to come.

Be aware, some things have changed:About Me now features a small curriculum vitae, with my educational background.  Average education for an average guy — and I wouldn’t have it any other way.  I dumped Movies & Videos; it served no purpose.  Unplanned Parenthood is now called Family Album.  And last but not least, a new story is up in Short Fiction Sample for your reading pleasure, entitled: “Devil Child”.  Enjoy…  😉
