Wondercon Part Two

I had a great time meeting attendees at Wondercon in Anaheim this weekend.  Working out of the Greater Los Angeles Writers Society booth, I had to pitch to passers-by, trying to interest them in my books.  I started asking people that walked by what they like to read.  Some said they didn’t have time or interest in reading–which is sad on a whole lot of levels.  On the other-hand, many others of all ages expressed a great interest in books.  They not only listened as I spoke about Midland and Bloodline, but also shared the books that have most inspired them.  I also had a long discussion with a young man who not only talked about books he liked, but also shared how he was trying to break into the music industry, just like my older son.  All of this, in turn, really inspired me: to keep writing, and also keep reaching out to readers.  After all, without readers, a writer’s work is only half done.

Midland Art

 

Talented Las Vegas artist Joseph Watson developed these graphic characterizations from my first novel Midland.  The first is entitled “Surrounded” and shows Midland’s heroine Sam with Brandon as they fight their way through zombies on the streets of Las Vegas.  Note that still on her back is her faithful dog Bailey.

The second image “The Freeway” is from one of the later chapters and has Sam riding towards the Las Vegas Strip.  Note how the artist captured the mood and scale of a post-apocalyptic Las Vegas.

The final image “The Mall” shows Sam in her life and death struggle to escape as the dead approach from all directions.

Bloodline signed by Damnation Books

Great news–Bloodline, my horror/thriller novel, was just signed by Damnation Books!   I have alot of passion about Bloodline for several reasons.  First, I love the characters and action.  Second, it provides a new take on the vampire myth.

In Bloodline there are monsters amongst us.  Not things with fangs, pointed ears or claws, or any other Hollywood invention.  No, these monsters have blended in, assimilating into society while still keeping to shadow and darkness. What better place for them to hide then under the neon lights of Las Vegas.  They are strong.  They are ruthless, and now they own the Eclipse Hotel.

Thomas Gage has worked at the Eclipse for years, diligently laboring at the front desk until one evening fate brings him to the attention of the hotel’s owner.  Seduced with money and power, Thomas is drawn into their brutal world, functioning as their daylight emissary while protecting their dark secrets.  He lives an idyllic and privileged life until fate turns, luck changes, and their brutal and vengeful attention becomes focused on him.

Ultimately, Thomas is pitted in a bitter struggle with not only his life but the lives of several others hanging in the balance.   From its action driven beginning in a Vegas night club, through the violence and carnage that accompany the construction and lavish opening of a new hotel, to the fiery climax high atop a hotel tower, this story balances thrilling action, suspense and drama while intertwining themes of relationships: mentor to protégé, father to son, and brother to sister.  Bloodline will draw you in, and maybe, make you think twice about your next Vegas vacation.

No publication date is set as of yet, but I figure it will be sometime mid summer.  As I get closer to publication, I’ll post more information.
