The Zero Dog War included in Explorations: The BN SciFi and Fantasy Blog’s list of Best Zombie Releases of 2012 (also a writing update)

Damn. That title is too long.

The Zero Dog War was mentioned in Explorations: The BN SciFi and Fantasy Blog’s list of Best Zombie Releases of 2012.
Needless to say, I’m thrilled. There’s a lot of great zombie fiction on that list.

Speaking of zombie fiction, my daughter-in-law and her husband bought me the first two graphic novels of The Walking Dead. I really enjoy the television show, so I’m eager to see if I love the graphic novels just as much (I likely will since I generally love the source material more than adaptations).

Other writing news. 9mm Blues may release this week. I really love this Urban Fantasy thriller…and I’m extremely excited to get it out to the reading public. It is packed with action, betrayals, ghouls, suspense, intense monster-fighting, more ghouls, and a young warrior learning what it means to be a hero. Anyway, when it goes live , I’ll update this blog with links and a blurb and so on. I’m terribly excited about it and can’t wait. I completed two novels in 2012…but the stars didn’t align and I wasn’t able to release any of them before the year ended. However, I should have at least three books out in 2013 (crossing fingers), including another book set in the Zero Dog world.
