May 27th

Lots of cool stuff happening behind the scenes that I can’t blab about yet, but I’ll say that the movie rights to not one, not two, but three of my books have been spoken for in the past couple of weeks. This does not mean that large checks have been deposited into my bank account, or that we’re anywhere close to an actual motion picture yet, but three more books have now taken that first step.

C. Michael Jeff, we met at the HWA Bram Stoker Weekend in Atlanta. I bought your "Wolf Hunt" and am really enjoying it. I'm excited to let you know my latest eBook has just been published. "Bizarre News" is a collection of outrageous articles too outrageous even for the tabloids. Too steamy, too sacrilegious, too politically incendiary -- in short, too hot to handle.

Dale Thele Jeff, thanks for the friend connect.
I've downloaded The Sinister Mr. Corpse,
looking forward to reading it.
Have an awesome 2014!

 Mike Working title: Feast or Famine
Forward by Bowie Ibarra
Deadline for submissions August 1, 2013

Anthology Theme: There are individuals known as survivalists, or now known by the recently coined term: preppers. These people are making preparations to ensure their safety and continued existence in the occurrence of a catastrophic disaster or event. But what happens when the SHTF? Really? You will have a population of have and have nots. Those who were ready and prepared and those who are caught unaware and panicked. The struggle for available resources will be another catastrophic event in and of itself as humans fight to either defend and retain what they have established or to take what others had the foresight to store and prepare.

This is the end as we know it. For some, life and death hinges on acquiring basic human needs, while for others life is good, if not better in accordance with their due diligence.
The Zombie Apocalypse has arrived. Will it be feast or famine?

Fran Friel Howdy, Jeff!

It's been too long since you and I lost a Stoker together. ;-) Doesn't look like you're losing these days, my friend. I'm alway happy to see your success and total greatness.
