Z-Risen Release will occur on Black Friday

Hey all! Sorry that it’s taken a while to update. I’ve been hard at work on a number of projects and one of those is the Z-Risen ebook. The book will appear in ebook form on Amazon.com on November 29th, Black Friday.

The full book contains quite a bit of new content. There are a number of new chapters, art, and each entry has been expanded. Plus it got a pro edit job so you don’t have to put up with my shitty grammar. Huzzah for editors!

The book also got a cover update. I worked very closely with a company called Straight 8 Custom Photography.

I think the studio did an amazing job. So what do you think? And remember to mark your calendar for the full ebook release. The book specially priced at .99 for the first week of release. I’ve put a ton of hours into the book and a good bit of money into art and the new cover. I won’t get rich of the book but I hope to keep you all entertained.

I also wanted to let you all in on a little secret. Z-Risen is directly related to my Permuted Press novel Beyond the Barriers so if you have not read it yet, be sure to check it out. As the Z-Risen books progress (yes, this will be a series) the two timelines will merge. Either book can be read as a stand alone.

Z-Risen’s Future

Thanks for swinging by the site. I hope you are getting a kick out of the serial because I’m having a hell of a lot of fun writing it.

I recently completed my newest book and I’ve been working my ass off to get it prepped for print. That means that I had to put Z-Risen on hold for a few weeks. The good news is that I should have the newest chapter posted by the end of labor day weekend. Day 7 – Free Ride is another crazy ass chapter that is action packed but also serves to expand the Z-Risen world.

I’ve got surprises in store. Continue reading…

Thank you all for the comments on the site and on Facebook. Writing Z-Risen and giving it away for free is a complete blast. Normally I write a book for a publisher and have a ¬†deadline but Z-Risen is a labor of love so I can write chapters and post them at my leisure. Of course, if you want to buy one of my books it would put a smile on my face as well as my publishers but it’s not a requirement to keep reading this story.

What’s your hand gun of choice?

You know it’s coming. You’ve told your spouse, your neighbors, your friends, and even your kids or parents. But they did the same thing, didn’t they? “Zombie apocalypse? That’s silly …”

Organizing for the zombie apocalypse may seem funny to some but we know that it’s prep work that can help out in the event of any kind of catastrophic event. If an earthquake hits and you’re cut off from the world with no way out of your neighborhood or house, what would you do? Let’s say the power also went out and you had no running water. See, it’s not just the Z-poc, this is something to think about as you plan for the future. They say that people are a few meals away from a riot and if the world goes to hell where will that leave you?

So it makes sense to collect a few survival items. Food and water for sure but lets not forget about the finer things in life. Weapons.

For this series I’ll expand the page as I have time but for now these are my picks. Yours may be different so don’t hesitate to share them on the page.

My choice for handgun is the amazing Glock17. This bad-ass holds an ample amount of rounds and you can teach anyone to how to use it in about five minutes. Not only that but the G17 takes one of the most popular rounds in the world, the 9mm parabellum. Why is that important? You can’t keep a million rounds at home and chances are that if the you are stuck in the z-poc this gun can be easily fed.


Stay tuned for more. The next entry will be about knives and blunt objects. In the meantime here’s the Glock17 in action.
