Coming home from very lonely places, all of us go a little mad; whether from great personal success, or just an all-night drive, we are the sole survivors of a world no one else has ever seen.

After making some minor changes on my proof copy and approving it, the print copy of my zombie novel, Panic in Year 2020 is now available on Amazon / CreateSpace. I also uploaded a new file for Smashwords and Kindle.
First impressions with print quality:
I wasn't sure what to expect but was very pleased when I received my proof copy. I had such trouble resizing the cover art dimensions that I kind of halfway expected some errors on the hard copy.
I changed the print size and paper color which changed the spine dimensions slightly.
So what I got was a very attractive cover with vibrant colors. You can check out some pics I took.
And this is what the digital design looked like as I submitted it:
As always the cover design is one of my favorite parts of putting a new title together. My next blog post will be about the cover design process for this particular title, so keep an eye out for that.
If you prefer your books in digital format, just go to my book section for the links. It still hasn't shipped out to Kobo, Barnes and noble and other retailers. I'm also waiting for the print and ebook version on Amazon to be linked together. Should take a couple of days.
See ya around the interwebs. =)
Panic in Year 2020 - The Novel
Guess what? My first novel is finally out, at least in ebook format.
I've got the proof copy on my desk right now and as soon as I look it over and approve it, the print copies should be available in Amazon as well.
Some of you may already know this as the novelization of a short story I released years ago via Smashwords. Many folks have emailed me in the past, asking when I'll write the rest of it, so here it is. Dun, Dun, Dunnnnn!!!
You can read synopsis of it here
Where to buy it:
You can also buy the ebook directly from me by clicking the button below.
I should have autographed/inscribed print copies available from this site shortly for those who are interested.
If you purchase an ebook copy and want that signed, you can click on the Authorgraph link on the upper right hand corner of this page.
For the next blog post, I'll talk about the making of the cover spread which was inspired by old propaganda posters. I'll also post photos of my proof copy vs. the pdf image of the cover.
As always, thanks for the continued support.
