CRASH DIVE audiobookVery happy today to announce that my WWII submarine thriller CRASH DIVE is now available in audiobook via Audible, offering nearly five hours of entertainment.

This edition of CRASH DIVE is published by Blue Heron and narrated by the great R.C. Bray, with whom I had the pleasure of working on the audio version of SUFFER THE CHILDREN. Bray did an amazing job, as always, making my work come alive with a stellar performance.

Episode 3 of THE RETREAT is now available in Kindle for pre-order on Amazon! This short eBook officially releases November 30. Get it here now.

This popular zombie series, written by myself and the great Stephen Knight and Joe McKinney, tells the story of a lost battalion fighting its way to safety across thousands of miles of an apocalyptic America overrun with homicidal maniacs–the Klowns.

Episode 3, written by Joe McKinney:

The long flight out of Boston.

After weeks of non-stop fighting across an America overrun by fearless, shrieking mad killers, and a daring assault to retake their unit’s home base of Fort Drum, Lt. Colonel Harry Lee and the men of First Battalion, 55th Infantry Regiment have made it to the outskirts of Philadelphia.

The blood of the innocent.

Along the way, they’ve picked up thousands of refugees, innocents in need of protection against impossible odds.

Shelter from the storm.

The City of Brotherly Love is currently under the protection of General Anthony Bell, commander of the famed 56th Stryker Brigade, the Independence Brigade. But in a world gone mad, nothing is as it seems. And when Bell has Lee arrested and put up on charges, it’s up to Lee’s right hand man, Major Chris Walker, to pick up the pieces. Can he snatch Lee from the hangman’s noose, and can he guide his troops, and his civilian charges, through the gathering horde of maniacal killers?

Or will they all die laughing?

Get it here!

I’m happy to announce that I’ve joined a great new collaboration team of David Moody and Timothy Long to produce a new WWII-era apocalyptic epic, THE FRONT.

The story will play out over six episodes. Tim will write the first one from the perspective of the Americans (episodes 1 and 4), David Moody the second from the perspective of the British (episodes 2 and 5), and I’ll bring up the rear with the German perspective (episodes 3 and 6).

For me, the good news is that this will give me enough time to finish the next episode of CRASH DIVE and episode 4 of THE RETREAT; Joe McKinney is wrapping up episode 3.

It’s a real honor to be working with these guys. Tim’s a great friend, and David–well, I’ll just say David’s the guy whose work got me into zombie fiction.

Tim’s hard at work on episode 1, which will be released December 2015.

No other details are available right now other than to say all hell’s going to break loose with this one. Stay tuned!

The event itself will be held on Sunday, October 11 from 12PM to 3PM Pacific Time. Registration for the event is closing soon.

THE INFECTION WARMy zombie novels THE INFECTION and its sequel THE KILLING FLOOR, two of Permuted Press’s most successful titles, are back in Permuted Platinum and slated for release as INFECTION WAR: BOOKS I & II through bookstores everywhere January 19, 2016.

Permuted Platinum is a program delivering select Permuted titles to distribution through retail stores like Barnes & Noble. The titles were originally slated for release this year but were dropped. After some conversations with the company’s ownership, they’re back in.

I’m really excited about this release. The books went through a thorough edit and polish for the new edition, and with distribution through Permuted’s partner Simon & Schuster, they’ll be available to many new readers.

As for a third book, I’ve got a stack of projects in front of it, but I’m hoping to revisit the brutal world of THE INFECTION in the future. Stay tuned.

Thanks, Permuted Press!

I was happy to see SUFFER THE CHILDREN be read as Book #8 in the NIAFABO blog’s 100-book reading challenge:

“An interesting take on the zombie/vampire apocalypse story. DiLouie’s story had a clear voice, and even though you knew where the story was headed, you found yourself hoping that somehow things would turn around. The way that the parents and society seemed to deteriorate along with the innocence and humanity of the children was chilling and compelling. The book asked the question of just how far parents would be willing to go for their children and their families, and it did not disappoint … Ultimately satisfying.”
