Fight Pediatric Cancer & You Might Win a Book

I ran the Warrior Dash as a St Jude Warrior in 2012, and I’m doing it again this summer.

My biscuits are burnin’!

Any Warrior Dash participant who raises $300 for St Jude Children’s Research Hospital is eligible for extra privileges including gear check, lunch, and showers. With your help, I was able to take advantage of those privileges in 2012, and I’m hoping to do so again this year.

As an incentive, I’ll be giving away an autographed trade paperback copy of Lie with the Dead. Anyone who donates $5 or more through my St Jude Warrior page will be eligible for the drawing. If we beat the $300 goal by April 15th, I will give away two copies.

The drawing will be held on April 16th.

For more information on St Jude, or to donate, please visit my St Jude Warrior page.

Thank you for supporting the cause, and good luck!

To Fight with Monsters first appeared in the fan favorite (and now hard to find) collection 4×4, and is the prequel to my novella “To Travel Among Men”. A must-have for Keene or Oliveri fans, but a great read for anyone.

About the book:

When humanity rapidly devolves into a monstrous state, teenager Rick Donovan joins his fellow townspeople in makeshift trenches to defend their homes. However, the monsters may already be among them…

New post-apocalyptic horror from Bram Stoker Award-winning horror novelists Mike Oliveri (The Pack, Werewolves: Call of the Wild) and Brian Keene (The Last Zombie, Dead of Night: Devil Slayer) and Godfather of American Manga Ben Dunn (Marvel Mangaverse, Ninja High School, Warrior Nun Areala)!

Thanks for preordering, and good luck with the contest!

Update 3/9: The prize drawing has been extended until March 22nd! Get those orders in!

Big Week for The Pack

There’s a lot going on this week for my new book, The Pack: Winter Kill.

First up, the first reviews have been rolling in to Amazon (both the paperback and the Kindle edition), and so far they’ve been very positive. The noir-horror hybrid seems to be a big hit, and people have been happy with the pacing and action. So far, so good. I just hope magazine and newspaper reviewers are as generous.

In an attempt to encourage even more reviews, the publisher, Evileye Books, launched a review contest. If you’ve read the book, drop by and tell the world (or at least Amazon shoppers) what you think and you may just win a signed, limited edition hardcover edition of The Pack: Winter Kill. You’ve only got ’til Friday to enter, so get crackin’!

On Friday I’ll be catching a flight out to California to meet my friends (and authors) Brian Keene and J.F. Gonzalez, and on Saturday you can catch us at 2pm at Dark Delicacies in Burbank, CA. The following day, we’ll be heading up north Borderlands Books in San Francisco to sign at 3pm. I’ll be doing a lot of flying a s a result, but I’m looking forward to reconnecting with some old friends and meeting some new readers. (It’ll also be nice to trade in the snow and cold for some warmer weather.) There’s a full schedule on my Appearances page.

These are exciting times, and with a little effort, I should be able to keep up the momentum.

The Pack Contest: Tell Us What You Think and Win!

Alright, folks. The response went so well for the Twitter contest a few weeks back that we’ve decided to throw out another contest. The prize this time? A copy of the limited edition, signed and numbered hardcover edition of The Pack: Winter Kill!

Here’s the scoop:

The first 200 people to post reviews or blurbs on the Amazon page for The Pack: Winter Kill by January 15th will have their names thrown into a hat for the drawing. The winner’s name will be drawn and announced on January 18th. Favorable reviews would be appreciated, of course, but we do want honest, credible reviews.

In other words, we want to know what you really think, not bring the wrath of the almighty Amazon down on our heads for abusing the system. And by the way, void where prohibited, no animals will be harmed in the making of this contest, and insert your various and sundry legalese right here.

After you’ve posted, send along your name and mailing address (as well as your Amazon alias, if applicable) to pack@evileyebooks.com. Email will be accepted through midnight central on Friday, January 15th. Come back here the 18th to see who won.

Good luck and get reading!
