Introducing the new zombie killing machine!

29 Sep

So hubs thinks that in bringing a gun home (which costs more than my first car, AND my second car) that I will not be angry if he also includes zombie killing bullets. I have to admit, the bullets with little green tips are pretty kick-ass, BUT it’s an awfully pricey gun and he ain’t no Rambo! Tomorrow we are going to go shoot up some zombie targets. Okay, the zombie target practice sounds kick-ass as well, but I am in NO WAY endorsing spending more on a gun than you would on a car. Zombie target pics to follow. Melvin the Dry Cleaning Zombie had better not try to come around MY house.
Speaking of Melvin the Zombie, he also makes a guest appearance in my newest book, Pride and Prejudice and Vampires releasing in October. He’s not actually in THAT story, but included in a bonus selection of short stories in the back. Can’t you just wait?

Pride and Prejudice and Vampires Cover Reveal!!!

27 Sep

What do you think of my new cover? Pretty awesome, right? Poor Jane Austen is rolling over in her grave right now. Slow down, Jane!!! My latest parody will be arriving on your Kindles in October, but the early reviews are already pouring in.  Here’s what readers are saying about Pride, Prejudice and Vampires!

From Jane Austen: This book motivated me to return from beyond the veil of mortality so that I might smack Pj Jones upside the head.

 

From PJ Jones’ neighbor’s dead cat: I can’t believe I wasted one of my nine lives reading this book.

 

From Melvin the zombie: Brains. Books. Brains.

 

From the flasher in the Safeway parking lot: Come a little closer. I’ve got something else for you to read.

 

From the sanitation truck driver in PJ’s neighborhood: I knew there was a strange smell coming from PJ’s house.

Below is an unedited scene from Pride, Prejudice and Vampires:

“Brother.” Caroline Bingley snapped her fan shut and wacked Mr. Bingley over the head. “I told you country society was unrefined. We need to move back to London.”

“I can’t sell my house. I already signed the papers. Besides, I locked in my loan at three percent interest. I’m never going to get another deal like that.”

The Eclective is a group of authors dedicated to the premise that The Story is The Thing, and classifications of genre are mostly a matter for bookshelves. While the following stories share a “Haunting” theme, they might variously be filed as Horror, Paranormal, Fantasy, YA, etc., or anything else. Our idea is that the story itself is more important than whatever label somebody feels like giving it, and by bringing our work together in collections like this one, we hope readers may find a story they might like. Even if it is not in “their” genre.
