The Story So Far

Trekkies is on the shelves. At Barnes and Noble you can find it in the New Science Fiction section, top shelf. There is a nice review of Night of the Living Trekkies up on Amazon, and here is another great review from The Necromancer Bog.

Promotions will be starting soon, some interviews being scheduled including one for my alma mater for Fresno State Magazine. There has been some talk about a few more signings and events, but nothing nailed down yet. In the meantime I'm doing my best to ignore all that and stay focused, and write. Currently I'm polishing the first draft of a new zombie novel proposal which I think, like Trekkies, will have a new spin on the genre. I'm in the middle of a rewrite of a YA novel based on some insightful suggestions from my agent, and I'm waiting to hear back on my Pseudopod submission, which I'd love to hear them produce. I haven't been on the pod since 2008 with Blood, Gridlock and PEZ - the short story that got me thinking about putting geeks up against some kind of horror scenario, the end result of which is Night of the Living Trekkies. I'm struggling to get a submission into The Drabblecast, my favorite fiction podcast, but can't seem to hit the flash fiction word count anymore.

Summer is coming to an end and don't tell my kids, but I'm so glad school starts next week. More time to write. You stay at home parents/writers, know what I'm taking about.

Well, that's the story so far - Live long and prosper.
