Well, I had a very productive and interesting weekend. I was able to work on my Asian vampire story (3,000 more words accomplished!), I worked on a couple of short prompts from my writers group and actually watched a great documentary from the History 2 Channel. It is called ‘Zombies: A Living History’ and it shows how in some way, shape or form, Zombies have been in pretty near every human culture that has ever existed on this planet. If you all get a chance, I highly recommend checking this out – I found it fascinating, but then something would truly be wrong with a horror writer who didn’t! *hehehe*. Oh, yeah, and I also got my laundry done for the week.(yay).
Have switched some things around for the last quarter of this year. I have submitted my second book in my ‘Searchers Inc’ series to be hopefully, published by the end of this year and am going to hold off submitting my Asian vampire until the beginning of next year, along with my co-written work ‘Z-Regen’. I want to be sure both stories are polished up before being submitted, and with my anthology ‘Horrors & Occupational Hazards’ also coming out soon, this will allow me to end this year with two ‘good ‘uns’ (fantasy/action and Hitchcocklike suspense) and begin next year with two that are more along the ‘horror’ line.
Am also proofing a novel from another great author friend of mine – Samuel Adam Reese – which is in its first stages of development, and let me tell you all; this man is a force to be reckoned with. If you have not read any of Sam’s work, go to amazon.com and check out ‘Immolation’ by Sam Reese. All I could do was sit there with my jaw hung down to my chest after I finished the last page. A profound piece of work.
For a glimpse at other truly great authors, go to my website, leapingunicornliterary.com and look at my authors page – and don’t forget to peek at the people who have made it all happen – Our Publishers! I have a page set up for them. I heartily suggest checking them out. It is their level of quality and the belief in treating their authors with respect and dignity that set them above the rest.
Well folks, that is my blog for today. Stay well read and well fed, be good to yourselves and each other!
