Some really awesome news that I have been waiting to tell everyone. My novel, Hitchers, is going to be a limited edition hard cover release from Thunderstorm books. That’s right. Numbered copies at very limited supply. I am honored to be among some of the authors I look up to joining this company. Authors like Brian Keene and Shane Mckenzie, and Bryan Smith. Very cool stuff! The book looks like it will be coming out in the fall. I am not sure as to how many copies will be printed, but if I remember correctly I am thinking it will only be around 60 copies. I can’t wait for this to come out. Hitchers was probably one of my more favorite titles and yet, somehow, it managed to fall to the side like some books do. Maybe this will help give it a little bit of a boost.
First off, I am only about 5 chapters away from finishing the first draft of my next Permuted Press release. The title of this book and its content are a secret. I will however tell you two things about it. It is my first co-write and it is a zombie novel. If I plan it out right, the 5 chapters will amount to about 10,000 words left. If I work hard I think I can crank through it by the end of next week. I don’t know though, because I do have a lot of other stuff going on.
Comic Book Stuff
Tucker the Raccoon is a character I have been working on. Right now I am working on my first official print release for him. The title of the piece is Attack of the Meat. Tucker’s first official appearance will bin a 4 page spread in a local comic book anthology about food. Thus the meat attack. Once this 4 page spread is complete and turned in by the deadline I will begin viewing different options on my creation process. With this, I will start working diligently on my first graphic novel. The contents of the book have already been figured out. I just have to sit down and do it. An official Logo for Tucker has also been finished up by a local artist, Jake Abelman.
Bizarro Pulp Press
As many of you know, I own and operate a small indie publishing company called Bizarro Pulp Press. We have been around for a little over a year and a half know and things are gearing up for a monster of a change. This is massive news. Right now I am not allowed to give any more details, but you will hear it from me as soon as I can spill the beans. I am excited about this news. It means big things for everyone involved in the company.
Rainbows and Sunshine… and zombies
This is a splatterpunk/grindhouse/bizarro novella that I am working on. Well, I haven’t actually started on it just yet. But once I do get some of the above things off my plate I will begin writing on it ASAP. I am excited about this one because it strikes as close to home as anything I have ever written. You will find out why once it is done.
So, those are the things I have been doing. Like I said, got a lot going on. Stay posted, because we have a lot of new material coming, big secrets getting revealed, and like always, me telling really jacked up stories.
The codes are in. Here are 5 FREE Download codes for my bizarro novella, Captain K and the Bearded Manboy. Grab one while the grabbing is good. And don’t be a jerk. Take one and leave the rest for someone else. Jerks are lame and no one likes them. They usually spend life alone. Sad.

So, there are some mornings on the weekends where I will sit down and watch HLN. Sometime last week they were talking about this guy that was taking requests. You would send him a song and he would dance to it for you on Youtube. The concept behind this is NO MORE SAD. And I have to honestly say that it worked. Seeing him dance to a song I picked was epic. So epic in fact that I had to share. It made my day. The song I picked out was from August Burns Red. Most of the songs the guy was getting to me seemed a little on the main stream side. So, I went with something that I loved. Something with a dance beat. Anyway, here it is. He even says ‘Pat’s song’ right before he starts dancing.
Okay, so a long while back when still played drums in a band called Save the Ship, I had dreads. I recently decided to go back to the poop shaped hair. I have been working on it for about two weeks now. Well, more like Sarah has been working on it for about two weeks now. Anyway, they are coming along. Starting to tighten up. Right now my hair may seem a little silly, but as they get longer it will begin to look better. I am happy with how they are turning out, but look forward to the day when they are about twice the length that they are right now. If you have ever wanted to do this type of hair, I highly recommend checking out Dread Head HQ. I recommend their products and their customer service is tops.
As the progress continues I will be sure to post new pictures.
Right now you are reading this with some hope that you will find out more about what this book could possibly be about. I hate to say it, but you might have to read it to find out. Besides, with a freaking super killer awesome book cover like this who wouldn’t want to read such outrageously sweet sweetness? I know I would.
It looks pretty epic if you ask me.
