October marks my first anniversary of consistently posting book reviews. I’d great plans for this month, with lots of horrors, a book launch and cute pictures of animals in costumes.
Unfortunately, the best laid plans of mice had men often go awry.
Farewell to Big Pup
I’ve lost two crew members this year, and Big Pup’s passing this month hit me particularly hard because:
1) It was so sudden and unexpected. He went from off his dinner to dead in six hours.
2) Big Pup was my soul dog. There isn’t room in this post to say how much he did for me everyday, but regular readers of this blog will be familiar with his face.
I’m writing his biography for NaNoWriMo. Its going to be intensely personal and upsetting, but I hope it will be cathartic. Whether anyone will want to read it, or be allowed to, is for the future to reveal.
Because of his death, I’ve changed a lot of my writing plans for the rest of the year, as well as my rating system on books. I will review this after 100 days of mourning have passed.
Zombies for Halloween
Here are my reviews of some of the books you’ll find in Zombies for Halloween.
Dead Meat Day 1 by Nick Clausen. Zombies take over Denmark, one day at a time.
After the Change by Michael J Moore. YA zombies.
God of Zombies by Rob Bliss. Giant zombies.
7 Weeks in Hell
Thank you to everyone who has preordered 7 Weeks in Hell. I’ve postponed the release until 12th November because Big Pup’s passing has made everything much harder, and I didn’t want to release an inferior product.
The good news is that reports from betas and my editor is that 7 Weeks in Hell is even better than 7 Days in Hell. I’ve tried something different with the ending of the book, and I’m looking forward to hearing what you think of it.
I didn’t reach my goal of 31 horror books, I didn’t even equal my number of reviews from last year. I did read some great fiction though.
