As you may have noticed, this blog has been sadly neglected in the last few months. Unfortunately, I had to take a step back from blogging and writing due to real-life issues (nothing too bad, luckily; I have just been terribly busy). I am still writing stuff, though, and hope I will be able to publish another book, or possibly two, in 2018. Until then, I will try to take the time to write a few posts. Hopefully, I will manage to make them interesting.
It’s been a while since I posted something here. My life has been kind of crazy, and alas, updating this website comes a few positions behind my sanity and physical health in my list of priorities. Luckily, things seem to have now un-crazened a bit, and I finally got some extra time for strictly non-survival related stuff.
Here comes the big news: I’ve begun writing a new book. This one is going to be quite different from Revived. I don’t want to reveal too much this early, mostly because I might end up changing things on the go and would look like an idiot if I published something that didn’t even resemble the previews. I can, however, tell you this: it’s going to be a much different book from Revived. While in my first novel I explored the “character” of the zombie, in this book I’m going to tackle two classic tropes at once: the Hero and the Dragon. But none of them will be the protagonist, at least not in the classical sense, and the working title I’m currently using is Hero Slayer, so be prepared for something unusual.
Heck, if you’re reading this, you should already be prepared.

What better way to wake up in the morning than to discover you’ve got a new 5-star review? Thanks to Dianne from Tome Tender for her praise of Revived!
Hooray! Revived was reviewed by Jasmine of Jazzy Book Reviews, who gave it an excellent rating of four (I kid you not!) undead thumbs up! You can find Jasmine’s review here. Here are some of my favorite bits:
Revived is a fun, sort of snarky horror story that takes traditional zombie lore and throws it out the window.
Character-wise, Vi is a likeable person. She’s a bit of a smart-ass, and occasionally her temper does get the best of her. But all in all, she’s a fun character. I really enjoyed the story because of her.
Every single person in the story gives you a reason to either love them or hate them.
If you’re looking for something different and not-so-traditional in the zombie/horror genre, look no further than Revived
Thank you so much, Jazzy!
