Graverobbers Wanted

Check out this review of Graverobbers Wanted (No Experience Necessary)…actually, make that Grabrauber gesucht (Keine besonderen Kenntnisse erforderlich). I’m pretty sure he liked it, but he could be saying “This book is total crap!” in an upbeat manner. Any German-speaking readers willing to summarize?

DRACULAS!!!

Okay, enough of the “I’m so naughty and secretive!” teasers. Draculas is a collaborative novel written by me, F. Paul Wilson, Blake Crouch, and Jack Kilborn. (Yep, a novel, not a collection of stories.)

Think: a hospital overrun by vampires. Mean ones. Scary ones. Vampires that are so non-sparkly that when they transform, their freakin’ teeth burst right through their freakin’ cheeks and lips! It’s like the lower half of their faces just get absolutely shredded in the process! Is that gross and awesome or what? (Obviously, they only change once.)

If you like your vampires to be dreamy, this is not the novel for you. Spend your $2.99 elsewhere.

If you prefer restrained horror, where a sense of unease and foreboding is achieved through an eerie breeze in the Autumn leaves, start composing your one-star Amazon review now.

But if you want blood, blood, blooooood, and action, action, aaaaaction, and more than one scene involving intestines, Draculas is the book for you.

The Kindle edition will be out October 21st for $2.99. (Remember that you don’t need an actual Kindle, just the free Kindle app.) You can pre-order it HERE.

Or, if you want a generously portioned FREE sample, just click HERE, which will let you read more than enough of the novel to figure out if you’re going to love it or cluck your tongue in a disapproving fashion.

GLEEFULLY MACABRE TALES e-book for $2.99!

If you own a Kindle, or even the free Kindle app, you can now get Gleefully Macabre Tales for $2.99! Now that the book also includes my novella Disposal, that’s over 80,000 words of demented stories for less than three bucks!

Buy! Buy! Buy! Encourage the digital editions of my other books to take a similar plunge in price!

Draculas Q and A

Q: So what is this Draculas thing?

A: I can’t really talk about it.

Q: C’mon, you can tell ME, right?

A: No, I can’t say much of anything quite yet.

Q: Oh, I get it. This makes you feel all special and powerful and stuff, huh? “Ooooooooh, look at me, I’ve got a secret and I’m not gonna tell! Oooooooh, I bet you’re all soooooooo curious!” Well, nobody cares about your teasers. A million people just read your post and went “Meh.”

A: A million people visited my website??? That’s awesome!!!

Q: No…sorry, I just threw out a number. Twelve people just read your post and went “Meh.”

A: Dammit.

Q: Draculas is about vampires, right?

A: Again, I’m not really authorized to say much…

Q: Dude, it’s called Draculas and the cover has f***ing fangs on it! It’s about vampires! Admit it!

A: Those aren’t fangs. They’re blood.

Q: They’re blood that is obviously intended to resemble fangs. Don’t treat me like a common dullard. It’s a vampire book, right?

A: I can’t confirm or deny anything like that. I’ll be beaten. They’re really mean to me, and I just–

Q: Okay, okay, chill. So what authors are involved?

A: You know F. Paul Wilson, creator of Repairman Jack? He’s in there. Also Blake Crouch, author of amazing thrillers like Desert Places.

Q: Wow!

A: I know!

Q: Anybody else?

A: Nope, it’s Blake, me, and F. Not a bad lineup.

Q: I heard that Jack Kilborn also co-wrote it.

A: Who?

Q: Jack Kilborn…pen name of J.A. Konrath

A: [Silence.]

Q: Joe Konrath…?

A: I don’t remember him being involved. Nice guy, though.

Q: Is the book an Amazon Kindle exclusive that will sell for a mere $2.99?

A: Where did you hear that?

Q: Joe Konrath’s website.

A: Seriously? You mean he did a blog post that wasn’t about e-books?

Q: Well, no, I mean, this was saying that Draculas was a $2.99 e-book, so technically it was a post about e-books.

A: Okay, good. We wouldn’t want the earth to spin off its axis.

Q: When will there be more (lots more) information available?

A: Soon.

Q: How soon?

A: Really freaking soon.

Q: Like…should I not leave my computer?

A: I wouldn’t.

Draculas. Coming soon. Keep hitting “refresh.”
