Is this book independent from the "Among" storyline?

It is! In fact it's set in the same world as another one of my books, Beyond the Barriers, but it's different characters and set in a different time/place so no knowledge of the other book is required.

This is a free serial so you can read the book online. It's even optimized for phones. http://z-risen.com

It's out early and it's only .99 for the first week of release. The book features a number of sketches by Zach McCain, the guy that did a few of my book covers including Among the Living. I'm a big fan of his work and it was really great to hire him for the project.

Well. Z-Risen was a bit of a success. Actually, self-publishing is turning into "quit the day job" kinda money. With that in mind I have been busy.



This is on Amazon now.

Also, my book, Among the Living is getting a German translation and should be out later this year with Festa Verlag publishing. I'm pretty excited to be on the same label as Clive Barker, F. Paul Wilson, and Jack Ketchum.

While the money thing is cool, this last part is awesome.

I just picked up Z-Risen 1. Here's a question though, Z-Risen 2 is free with Prime borrowing. So do you actually get paid when people borrow the book or would we be screwing you out of a sale?

If I have a book in Prime, it means that the ebook can only be sold on Amazon. I can get as many as several hundred borrows a month on Amazon and I actually see more, in royalties, than I do from a sale.

Nice I guess I will just borrow it when I'm done with part 1.

Arise o thread. Arise and shamble forth.

After checking out for close to a year (thanks a lot, divorce...), the next book in the Z-Risen series arrives tomorrow. I'm throwing a little facebook party tomorrow afternoon at 3:00 PM PST so if you're in the virtual area, swing by. I'll give away audiobooks and other stuff.

Also there is a brand new Book 1-3 compilation. 170K words of non-stop zombie action. Giggety.

What happens when you hang out at a con with stoker nominated author Craig DiLouie and you both trick convince British horror author David Moody to join in your madness? This. This is what happens.



We're calling it: Band of Brothers meets Dead Snow.

I'm curious to hear how you did the multi-author writing.  Did you each take a chapter and pass it back and forth for massaging, or did one do more outline and others flesh out details, or...?

We're writing separate books. I wrote the first novel. David Moody is working on the follow up called THE FRONT: RED DEVILS. Craig DiLouie will write the third then we'll start over again in that order. We're slated for 6 books total but there are plans for spinoffs as well. In a couple of months I'll write a novella called Night at Wereth: A Tale from The Front.

I have written with another author where we wrote alternating character/chapters. It was a blast.

Late last year I quit my day job to write full time so I have a lot more time to work on books. It also means I can finally finish novels that have been on my back burner for a while. IMPACT EARTH: SYMBIOSIS is a project I've been working on for nearly 4 year and bonus--no zombies! This is a super hero/alien invasion mashup set on the streets of Seattle.

My friend Peter Clines (seriously, if you haven't read The Fold, Ex-Heroes, or 14 get on it!) helped me come up with the synopsis. My normal cover artist whose name is Eloise J. Knapp worked her magic once again and created an amazing cover. My beautiful girlfriend Katie Cord, a publisher herself, and owner of Evil Girlfriend Media, kept me centered and encouraged me to keep pushing into this new genre.

Long intro but here's the thing. There is this myth that writing is a solitary existence. I couldn't do this without help. I don't post here very often but I do tend to lurk on a daily basis. I enjoy the banter, game reviews, and stealing pictures from the "this time it's personal" picture thread. Anyway, if anyone wants a free copy of this book, just message me with your email address. No strings attached. Just to forewarn you, the book is Kindle exclusive so I only have .mobi files. Anyway here's the cover:

Cool, congrats on the new book!  I just bought it on Amazon and look forward to reading it!  Although I may not get to it for a couple months since I still have a backlog from holiday gifts (and my own lack of restraint).   icon_biggrin

Not at all!  It just makes me a lazy-ass because I'd rather have Amazon auto-deliver it than have to manually side load a .mobi file.  slywink

I am in the same boat.  I have books I bought through Humble bundle that I have not read as getting them converted and copied is a pain in the ass

Tim,

Purchased and read in one day.  I like the cover art, the story itself, and supporting forum members.  I'm looking forward to the next installment - well done!  

For the record, I enjoy Clines work as well.  Fun stuff.

Why do you go by Tom if your name is Timothy? Tim, Timmy, and even TIIIMMMAYY! would be more likely. Regardless of your answer I still enjoy your books.
