Interview with the Vampire Writer, Bigfoot Hunters Trailer, & more

Hey all! Here's my version of a blog post buffet.

It's a combination of a quick "I'm not dead" post combined with a whole lot of coolness I'd like to share.

In short, today has been filled with all sorts of awesome.  Who'd a thought it for a Tuesday?

For starters, I'm currently featured over at the awesome Paranormal Book Beat site. I'm there to discuss my favorite undead geek, Bill The Vampire, as well as my unhealthy Transformers obsession.

Next up, I'm running an ad in my hometown paper for my horror / adventure novel, Bigfoot Hunters. If you're in central NJ, be sure to grab a copy.

But wait, it gets better.  Beth Lynn Lynne and her fabulous team at BZ Hercules have put together this kickin trailer for Bigfoot Hunters. It's my very first book trailer and I dare say they did a wonderful job with it.  I for one can't wait for the movie.  :)

Like free stuff?  Well my very first book, The Poptart Manifesto, a collection of humorous short stories - and the namesake of this website - will be FREE Wednesday through the end of this week.  June 27 - July 1.  If you haven't read anything of mine yet, it's not a bad way to get introduced to my style. See how my journey into writing began and get some insight into the wackiness that came before my novels.

Finally, and perhaps coolest of all, my latest novel, The Mourning Woods, is back from the editor! It's all polished and nearly ready to go.  That means it's only a matter of time before I put a bow on it and get it out there. Bill the vampire's story is about to continue and believe me, this is his wildest adventure yet.

All in all a kick-ass day to be a writer!  I hope yours is going just as fine.

I wondered if you had passed away; I had not seen anything from you in a while. Now that you are undead, welcome back!

I like the concept of a geek vampire a lot. I am not into vampires (I mean really, really - almost obsessively - NOT into them [almost undoubtedly this is my rebellious genes kicking back against their amazing popularity]) but the concept makes me laugh.

But I with *you* luck with your books, Rick - even if some of them ARE about vampires. :-)

Hah, thanks! And no worries. Trust me, I can understand if people are Vampire'd out. :)

I enjoyed the buffet. Your book trailer is fantastic. I am getting ready to do a review of Bigfoot Hunters on my blog next week. Would you allow me to use your trailer? It would be great with the post. If you want to see my blog here is the link. I think your book would fit nicely there.

How exciting about The Mourning Woods. Cade can't wait to start reading your books with me as soon as work slows down for him in the Fall :0)
