Yes I know this is a survival and preparedness blog; but every so often I like to give other writers a chance to talk about some of the book or story projects they might be working on.  So now is your chance to talk about your work.  I also appreciate the fact that so many of you have purchased my books which are shown on the left side of my blog page; which are available at Amazon.com.  If you liked them then please let me know; and good comments at Amazon.com are always appreciated.  I write post apocalyptic fiction, zombie fiction and horror fiction.  So what writing projects are the rest of you working on?

I Just wanted to thank the nice folks over at CanAmpreppers.net who purchased my books and are providing them as grand prizes in their giveaway contests.  Thank you very much.  I am both humbled and honored that you have selected my fiction books as your grand prizes.  To my other readers who have emailed me with the question “when is the next book coming out” the answer is Biohazard Redacted Book 2 of the Zombie Apocalypse should be out in about 3 months. I appreciate everyones patience and the loyal readership that has developed all over the North American continent. Again to all my sincere thanks and appreciation.  To date I have written six fiction books and my wife has reminded me that it’s okay to take a writing break every now and then.  I guess the wisest course of action would be to listen to her……….at least every once in awhile 🙂

After sitting on my back deck this evening and enjoying a cigar and a can of diet root beer soda; I thought I’d share a few things about writing that perhaps some of you may find helpful.

  • Write about things that you enjoy writing about.
  • You will get good reviews and you will get bad reviews.  Appreciate and be grateful for the good reviews and ignore the bad reviews; unless there is something valid which you can learn from them.
  • The things that some people like about your books will be the exact same things that others dislike about them.  Don’t let that discourage you.
  • Book sales have a rhythm all their own.  Some weeks you will feel like you have reached astronomically great sales goals and other weeks not so much.  Books will sell; just don’t worry if there is an off week when it comes to sales.
  • Be appreciative and thankful that people take the time to read your books.  If they have a comment or a question about your books, make the time to respond in a timely and polite manner.
  • But most importantly buy one or more of my books today as they are an enjoyable read and although fiction; you still might learn a thing or two 🙂  Plus buying them is the only surefire way that scientists have discovered to prevent the end of civilization as we know it lol 🙂

I’ve noticed sometimes bad book reviews can be good.  While everyone prefers good book reviews I have noticed an unusual trend.  All of my books sell very well over at Amazon.com but when I look at the daily sales figures I notice that whenever a bad review comes up; sales figures on my books spike upwards dramatically.  It’s a perplexing marketing mystery.  The vast majority of my royalties are donated to charity as my regular full time occupation (non author related) takes care of my bills and living expenses so writing is just a hobby; so I can continue to donate to worthy charities.

Some of you are perhaps familiar with my post apocalyptic/survival fiction books; and not long ago I decided to start working on a zombie fiction book series.  The result is my first zombie fiction book entitled Biohazard Redacted Book 1 of the Zombie Apocalypse.  The storyline is as follows.

The zombie apocalypse has officially begun when Creedmoor Chemical begins dumping their failed medical cure all drug CRAv3 into the ground. Its unintended consequence is the reanimation of the recently deceased. As the zombie infection spreads; Tim is forced to leave his home and fend off not only deadly zombie attacks, but also the evils that man instigates against man. The following is Tim’s written record of events as he tries to stay alive and maintain his humanity; in a world decimated by the flesh eating zombie hordes. This is Book 1 in the Biohazard Redacted series.

All of my books are available at Amazon.com and a free preview is available by clicking on the book cover images on the left side of my blog page.  If you like what you see consider purchasing a copy. Below is a sample of the new book cover.

Some of my readers have asked what books am I working on next?  Well I’m glad they asked.  In about three weeks my first zombie fiction book will be available entitled Biohazard Redaction, Book 1 of the Zombie Apocalypse.  That will be followed up by more books in this new, continuing zombie series.

I’m also continuing to work on my existing series of post apocalyptic fiction books; already available at Amazon.com which so far is comprised of American Rebellion Book 1 of the Revolution, American Rebellion Book 2 of the Revolution, American Rebellion Book 3 of the Revolution, American Rebellion Book 4 of the Revolution and American Rebellion Book 5 of the Revolution.  Much further down the road I also plan on doing a fictional serial killer mystery series as well; so my writing plate is full.

My American Rebellion series continues to sell very well but of course getting folks to leave any reviews (good reviews preferred) lol is an uphill battle.  But book sales have far exceeded my expectations so I’m thankful for that; and to my loyal readers who take the time to contact me and express their likes and dislikes.  Again I appreciate all of my readers very much.  Thanks for sharing this journey with me.
