Saw BATTLE FOR LOS ANGELES and loved the simplicity of the premise and the military perspective (hey Jonathan Liebesman, now do the same with zombies–adapt TOOTH AND NAIL!). Great action, effects. Loved it. But: The shaking cam made it almost impossible to see what was going on in the first half. Then the story appeared to keep stopping and starting. Would have worked better with calmer cam and 1 story arc imho.
“Outside, they hear the howl of the Infected and the tramp of hundreds of feet. Distant gunshots and screams. Then it is so quiet they can hear the blood rushing through their veins. In the dim light of a lantern, Ethan accepts a sleeping pill from Wendy and dry swallows it.”
One of my favorite apocalyptic horror authors, David Moody, gave my novel TOOTH AND NAIL a nice shoutout in a recent interview with GeekGirlOnTheStreet.com, calling it a “fascinating book … a great book.” Thanks, David!

While on a long, excellent vacation in a sunny part of the USA, I went to 2 B&N stores and 2 Borders stores having clearance sales. The Borders stores had great horror sections, the B&N stores had none. To add insult to injury, B&N puts almost all of its vampire books in Fiction, and zombie books in Science Fiction. Dear B&N: If you don’t want to sell horror intelligently, Amazon will happily eat your lunch.
“He sighs and wonders what Sara would think about the new Paul if she were still alive. He takes comfort in the understanding she loved him and would want him to survive no matter what the cost. She would tell him to kill the thing in the alley. She would say: You are my man and I love you more than myself. She would say: Survive, baby. She would say: Kill them all.”
Patrick D’Orazio, author of the DARK trilogy, reviews THE INFECTION, my apocalyptic horror novel from Permuted Press, on Amazon, saying: “This is an excellent book of the apocalypse, creative and wild from the start; from how the infection occurs to the results it yields, and the characters that inhabit its pages are just about as compelling as any I have ever seen.” Thanks, Patrick!
