Well, the anticipation continues to build as I get closer and closer to completing the next two books on my plate. I’m working hard to get them both totally complete and in print before the big HorrorHound convention here in Indianapolis at the end of March. A quick update on both tomes for you:
- “The G.O.R.E. Score, Vol. 2” is coming along well. I still have about 10 more reviews to write, which includes the 5 that I’ll be writing specifically for the book and won’t be available anywhere else, before I’ll have enough content to fill the book to the desired level. I’ll also be writing a new introduction, as well as a retrospective-journal of sorts, detailing my experience when I got to be a zombie in the stage production of “Night of the Living Dead Live” last October. My fabulous brother-in-law Tom (whose praises I recently sung at length on my blog here) will be designing the cover for this book, as he did with Vol. 1 as well.
- “Reviews of the Dead” is so close to completion I can almost taste it! This book is being compiled, formatted, and printed by a stand-alone publisher, Living Dead Press, with whom I have a 5-year contract for the book. My responsibility on this one is simply to get the content to him by the deadline, Feb. 14; sounds easy, right? Well, since the book is a companion guide for the top 25 zombie movies, my content is not really being edited too heavily by the publisher, since he’d essentially be altering my thoughts, opinions, and my “voice” by changing too much, which means what I send over to him needs to be damn near perfect in my eyes, or else he’ll print something that I sent him that may have been a mistake on my part. And as you all may or may not know, I’m a pretty damn big perfectionist, so mistakes are the devil to me. Regardless, it’s all coming along well, I’m up ‘til all hours of the night trying to do final analytical viewings of the movies and editing what I’ve written, to make sure I’m not missing anything. It’s going to be one radical book, if I do say so myself.
Other than that, one final piece of writing-related news for you: my Nebula-nominated novella, “The Eagle Has Reanimated,” is now officially available on both the Kindle and in physical print form from Amazon!
