Pseudonym change, other updates

As I mentioned a couple of months ago, the next release (the paperback of Zoey) will be under my own name as I retire the David Wong pseudonym. The plan is to re-release all of my other books under my real name as well, I don't know the exact timeline but probably this fall. You'll see the change roll out here and on Amazon etc as everyone switches over.

The next book is the 4th in the John and Da Read more of this blog post »

“Son, the greatest trick the Devil pulled was convincing the world there was only one of him.”
David Wong, John Dies at the End

“Scientists talk about dark matter, the invisible, mysterious substance that occupies the space between stars. Dark matter makes up 99.99 percent of the universe, and they don't know what it is. Well I do. It's apathy. That's the truth of it; pile together everything we know and care about in the universe and it will still be nothing more than a tiny speck in the middle of a vast black ocean of Who Gives a Fuck.”
David Wong, John Dies at the End

“And watch out for Molly. See if she does anything unusual. There’s something I don’t trust about the way she exploded and then came back from the dead like that.”
David Wong, John Dies at the End
