Todd Keisling’s ULT #5 is Available for Preorder!

I’m a fan of Todd’s work, and this story is one of my very favorites.

the-otherland-express-150

“Everything you are now will never be again.”

Somewhere between the lonely highways of America’s heartland lies a place that shouldn’t exist. A place where the sky is tinged purple and strange flora sprouts from gray sands. A place welcoming the lost and promising opportunity.

For Gregory Simmons, that opportunity is paramount, but like all things in his short life, nothing comes easy—or free.

On the run from his abusive father, Gregory finds himself stranded in a Midwestern bus depot with a stranger who calls himself John Doe. “I’m a genuine Nobody,” he tells Gregory. “I help other Nobodies get from here to there.” John Doe has a proposition for Gregory, one that will send him on a midnight bus ride across reality and straight into the heart of the mysterious Other Lands.

Check your bags and climb aboard The Other Land Express, the latest entry in Todd Keisling’s bestselling Kindle series, Ugly Little Things.

The Other Land Express will be available on April 7th! Pick it up and support somebody who is pretty likely to murder you in your sleep if you don’t. 😛

The Apocalyptic Montessa Cover Reveal!

Ladies and Gentlemen, I am absolutely thrilled to reveal the cover to my very first novella. May I introduce you to Apocalyptic Montessa and Nuclear Lulu: A Tale of Atomic Love.

Apocalyptic Montessa

Her mama always said she was special.

His daddy called him a demon.

But even monsters can fall in love.

Montessa Tovar is walking home alone when she is abducted by Lu, a serial killer with unusual talents and a grudge against the world. But in time, the victim becomes the executioner as Apocalyptic Montessa and her doomed lover Nuclear Lulu crisscross the country in a bloody firestorm of revenge.

Apocalyptic Montessa Spread

 

Apocalyptic Montessa will be published by Ragnarok Publications. The beautiful cover art was created by George Cotronis and I couldn’t be happier.

Why don’t you stop by and give them a like on Facebook or follow them on Twitter?  They’re a couple of entertaining guys, I promise you.

I’m so excited! Thank you for sharing this with me!

My Nemesis Has A Book! And It’s Awesome!

OddMenOut3

I’m sure that you are familiar with the bloodthirsty rivalry that I have with the nefarious Matt Betts. What? You aren’t? Well, that’s probably a good thing because, while we were once into hamstringing each other every chance we got, we sort of became older and wiser and…well, lazy.  Instead of throwing grenades while racing through the yard, we started lobbing insults. And then kind of became, well, almost friends in a way.  I beta read his novel, which made it SO INCREDIBLY AWESOME THAT IT IS NOW BEING PUBLISHED by Dog Star Press! Rock on! (Mostly because of my help, of course. But the man writes a solid tale anyway.)  😛

So congratulations, Matt! And check out the gorgeous cover of his Firefly/Walking Dead/Godzilla mash-up, Odd Men Out.  The cover is really cool. The book is even better. Check it out when it’s available this July! Here’s the info:

Fighting for survival in a post-Civil War America overrun by zombies, Cyrus and Lucinda join a military group called the Odd Men Out, and together they face a terrorist army from the North in a showdown over a weapon of enormous power.

 

The Civil War went on far longer than anyone expected, prompting the North and South to call a truce to fight their common enemy: The Chewers – dead men come to life to attack the living. As a result, a peacekeeping force called the Office of Military Operations is created to watch over the tenuous peace.

Cyrus Joseph Spencer didn’t fight in the war and couldn’t care less about the United Nations of America that resulted from it. His main concern is making money and protecting his crew from all manner of danger. To escape a horrible tragedy, Cyrus and one of his wards, Lucinda, board a U.N. dirigible for safety. They quickly discover their situation has not improved as the U.N. team is chasing a group of rogue soldiers in hopes of stopping them from obtaining a terrible weapon.

They also have to contend with a larger threat – Drago del Vapore – a giant lizard attacking the West Coast and wreaking havoc on everything it encounters. As the two sides face off against each other and the huge beast, Cyrus feels more and more like an Odd Man Out and finds it harder and harder to stay out of the fight.
