Simple graphic experiments!



Just a couple of simple graphic experiments. Not sure if we'll utilize this style on a book cover or perhaps a graphic novel project. We're currently discussing the possibility of a short film in this style of art.

Donut Shop of the Dead on Amazon!


DONUT SHOP OF THE DEAD is now live on Amazon! The first of our 'B-Movies in a Book' is available in both print and digital.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00XJOVHS8

SYNOPSIS

There are worse things than day-old donuts.

Just ask George and Vince, two directionless slackers on a late-night road trip that leaves them lost in the middle of nowhere during the outbreak of a zombie apocalypse. A train derailment in a nearby town has released deadly chemicals into the air. The dead have risen and are craving more than just snacks.

Taking shelter in a twenty-four hour donut shop, our hapless heroes struggle to stay on top of the food chain using whatever makeshift weapons they can lay their hands on to battle against legions of the dead, psychotic survivalists, and a deranged zombie cop and his killing squad who are determined to take back the donut shops, destroy all humans and establish a new zombie world order.

Survival is on the menu in this non-stop, balls-to-the-wall, bite-sized horror-comedy that proves the end of the world is full of laughs, lunacy and sprinkles!

B-MOVIE IN A BOOK SERIES

The ‘B Movie in a Book Series’ is our ode to the trash, cult and underground films we grew up with and loved so much. Each book in the series is intended to be like watching the second bill on a double feature at the local Drive In filled with over the top action, crazy gore soaked fun and cheesy one liners. Take an exhilarating ride through a mixture of genres such as horror, comedy, science fiction, fantasy, action and adventure.

Grab your popcorn and prepare yourself for a mad romp through a dead world of zombies and donuts. Join a renegade warrior priest as he goes to war with an ancient evil. Get behind the wheel of a battle car on the desolate highways of a future gone insane. Delve into the twilight realm of a clan of Japanese vengeance demons bent on destroying our world. If you’re craving your next B-Movie fix then dive right in and start turning the pages.

Covenant Short Story


COVENANT - The latest short story I'm working on. Post-apocalyptic Death Insurance Salesman offering "a box, a burial and a prayer." I've just submitted THE COURIER (another short story) to a publisher so now I'm headed into the desert with this new character and seeing where he takes me.
