Great News!

After selling a copy of "Zombology" to the senior editor at 23 House Publishing (one Mitchel Whitington) he contacted me about sending me a complimentary copy of "Night of Blood 2," a vampire anthology. Well, I received it in the mail along with a proposal to co-edit an anthology of zombie short stories with author Joe McKinney! Imagine my surprise! After reading over the guidelines and expectations, I accepted! So, in the next few weeks, I will begin putting out the call for submissions. Joe and I will also have stories in the anthology. I am VERY excited about this and feel like doors are opening faster than I ever expected. I have been writing more, and just submitted a short story titled "River Runs True" to the Ladies of Horror Anthology that Library of the Living Dead Press will be publsihing. I am very glad to be writing; it give me a creative outlet, and it lets me tell my stories to whoever will read them.

None of this would be possible without Michael West, aka "Dr. Pus." What a great guy - don't let the nick name fool ya!

My Shameless Self Promotion....ugh....

Okay, here it is:
PLEASE come to the Author! Author! Festival on June 13th if you are in the Shreveport area! is the website. It's at the Municipal Auditorium from 9 am to 7 pm.
I will have a table set up and will be selling copies of "Zombology," which has my story "Every Rose" in it. I will also be promoting myself (har har) and Library of the Living Dead!
Also, from 5:00 till 5:25 PM, I will be featured in the "Reading Alcove," where I can chat and answer questions to my many fans that have yet to exist! (hee hee!)
If that's not enough to get you there, author Charlaine Harris will be there and will sign books and do a panel, etc...if you don't know who she is, I have two words for you: True Blood! She is the author of the books that the HBO series is based on (which takes place in Northern Louisiana and a lot about Shreveport!)
SO....friends, family, countrymen....can I count on you to stop by and see me? You can get free tickets from the website, so money isn't an issue. It lasts almost all day, so can you squeeze in a little of time for your best zombie-lovin' and writing girl?
I will have freebies at my table, and so will a lot of the other come by, won't you?
