“May-berry” is coming!

Howdy folks! Another busy week in the bank, but I wanted to take a moment here on this holiday to, first and foremost, say Happy Easter to everyone out there, and also give you all a brief update on what’s been keeping me occupied as of late. So let’s get right to it, eh?

Jonathan MaberryThe G.O.R.E. Score is gearing up for another special event next month, and one that I’m really excited about. During the month of May, I’ll only be reviewing items written by NY-Times best-selling author Jonathan Maberry! Jonathan is an incredibly talented writer, and he’s infinitely personable and always willing to connect with his fans directly, as evidenced by his many hours spent posting and replying to messages on Facebook, Twitter, and the like. Jonathan has written fiction and non-fiction novels, as well as been a featured writer on many zombie (and non-zombie)-centric comic books, so May will still give everyone a good dose of different media types, even though they’ll all be written by the same author.

As a special treat for everyone, Jonathan has graciously agreed to wrap up “May-berry” by being The G.O.R.E. Score’s first-ever guest reviewer! Although we’re keeping the finer details under wraps until we actually post the review at the end of next month, suffice it to say Jonathan will be wowing you not only with his writing skills but with his knowledge of zombies as well. It’s easily an event you won’t want to miss!

In addition to May featuring Jonathan, who was my “Award-Winning Author” counterpart in this year’s Dead Letter Awards (he won the Shambler award, the lifetime achievement award for excellence in the zombie community, and I won the Fresh Meat award for best newcomer to the genre), May is also the final month for the Great G.O.R.E. Giveaway! We’re giving away TONS of zombie books, movies, and more, including the Grand Prize of a brand-new Nook eReader! There’s no purchase necessary to enter and you can get multiple entries!

May’s going to be a great month at The G.O.R.E. Score! I hope to see you all there!

“May-Berry” is coming, plus lots more!

Hello friends! I hae a few big piese of news to share with you, so let’s get right to it.

Jonathan MaberryFirst and foremost: the month of May on TheGOREScore.com will be devoted to New York Times best-selling author and recent Dead Letter “Lifetime Achievement Award” recipient Jonathan Maberry! During “May-berry,” The G.O.R.E. Score will be exclusively reviewing some of Maberry’s best-known works, including Zombie CSU: The Forensics of the Living Dead, Patient Zero, Rot & Ruin (the 2010 Dead Letter Award winner for Best Fiction Novel), and others.

In addition to these exciting reviews, The G.O.R.E. Score is proud to welcome Maberry as the site’s first-ever guest reviewer! Maberry will be reviewing a piece of zombie media of his choosing, following the traditional G.O.R.E. review format established by Score creator Tony Schaab. I am both honored and humbled by Jonathan’s acceptance of this exciting collaboration – May can’t come soon enough!

Speaking of that month: going on right now through the end of May is the Great G.O.R.E. Giveaway, where the site is offering readers multiple chances to win tons of different zombie prizes (books, movies, comics, and more), including the grand prize of a brand-new Nook eReader!

Last but certainly not least: any readers who may be attending the huge HorrorHound convention in Indianapolis next weekend (March 25-27) can stop by The G.O.R.E. Score table to say hello! I’ll be selling acopies of all my books, including the not-yet-released “The G.O.R.E. Score, Vol. 2″ with an EXCLUSIVE limited-edition variant cover, an homage to the classic “Evil Dead” poster. There will only be 25 copies of this limited-edition version available, and this is the ONLY place to buy Vol. 2 right now.

More big news coming down the pipeline in the next few weeks, including a brand-new review project that will be of special interest to authors and reviewers looking to expand their portfolio! Until next time…!
