I Had Another Nightmare...

And it was wonderful. I died in it of course; most times, I do. But it always makes for a wonderful story. In fact, I don't think I ever mentioned that Long, Cold Winter came out of a nightmare I had while staying at a lodge somewhere in the eastern United States. I will not, however, reveal which lodge, but I will say I just heard that a Hollywood film company is making a B-film at the very same lodge this year. Urrrggg, Long, Cold Winter should've been turned into a film. If so, I would've revealed the location, ;)

Anyways, my latest nightmare isn't a new nightmare at all, as I've already been loosely taking notes for a similar book. It seems my nightmares like to influence one another. Let's just say some childhood friends come back to haunt you. I need not say more because this book is about three away from making it to press and I don't want another author stealing my morbid ideas. Though I've been told my ideas so far are so sick and twisted that another author wouldn't approach a horror story like I do anyways. To be fair, I've also been accused of being tongue-in-cheek, and every once in awhile, predicatable but appaling. Aren't we all? This comment made me think about my fans. It seems as a new author, I'm so far utterly loved or totally hated by my readers.... I'll take both, because it tells me I'm doing my job. 

All right friends, time for a nap. Hope it scares me to death.

My Morbid Mind

My publishers have just told me that I'm one sick, twisted individual, lol. I consider that a compliment. They asked me where I come up with these stories, to which I replied, "I dream them, of course." Because of that conversation, I started reflecting on the Moment of Death trilogy and thought about the thrill of writing. I truly enjoyed writing all three books, but I'm not sure which one is my favorite. Feel free to tell me which one is yours.

I am writing because I haven't been blogging much (a fact my publsihers keep reminding me of), so I wanted all my fans to know that their questions about the Moment of Death trilogy will not go unanswered. Many have emailed me wondering about the doctor and what became of the moment of death experiment. I planned to end the series with unanswered questions so that it was open-ended for future books, however after a meeting with 711 Press, we've decided to spin off a TV Book mini-series based on the moment of death experience. How soon will it be published? There is no set date at the moment because I'm busy writing two new Movie Books simultaneously so that I may unleash my fresh nightmares on paper. I will keep you posted week by week :)
