Please Hollywood, Don’t Make This Movie

I’ve gotten some pretty good reviews in the past, and my collaboration with Scott Wolf has received more than its fair share of good ones. But this is the first time a reader has loved a book I’ve worked on and then expressed a desire for it not to be made into a film! 🙂

Immolation Review

As always, These Dead Lands: Immolation remains on sale at Amazon in both ebook and print formats, and we hope the audio version is out by the end of the year. In the meantime, These Dead Lands: Desolation continues its journey through the, ah, birthing process. Stay tuned!

12 Books…

For your consideration… I have twelve paperback editions of These Dead Lands: Immolation signed by myself and the erstwhile Scott Wolf. I’m notoriously crummy when it comes to things like this, but at the moment, I do have twelve books to pass on. That’s 519 pages of military-on-zombie goodness!

If interested, the cost (including shipping) is $26.99. Payment can be made through PayPal to immolationllc at gmail.

In the not-so-distant future, I’ll be providing poster-sized versions of Marc Lee’s fabulous artwork, without title text–just troops bugging out in CH-47Fs while the hordes close in. It’s bangin’ artwork, I gotta say!

THESE DEAD LANDS: IMMOLATION Update and Concept Art III

March 15, 2015 4 comments

Hey crew,

Been lying low in the trenches as of late, but managed to churn out the final part of THESE DEAD LANDS: IMMOLATION to the tune of over 180,000 words, which is one fat book. Scott Wolf is interested in halving it, which would keep print production costs down. I’m considering it, but we haven’t made a final determination yet.

As of now, the product has been proofed by the erstwhile Dianna Cox, and it’s currently in the able hands of Lynn McNamee, who is my editor of choice, since she’s ex-Army and isn’t put off by acronyms and military maneuvers in general. She’s also direct and to the point, which is something I like. For those of you who have read the works of Keith Blackmore, she has done many of his titles as well. I anticipate the product being returned to me within a week’s time, after which we’ll import the corrections. Scott and I will gather around and do a final salience review and whatever rewrites are indicated, and then it will go back to Lynn for a second once-over and final proof. Without having seen the first edits yet, I don’t know how much work lies in store for us, but I remain optimistic for an April release. The tremendously talented Marc Lee continues to work out the cover, and I present his latest work for your perusal here.

That’s all for now, other than to mention I’ll have a flurry of releases coming up, along with IMMOLATION: THE LAST TOWN #3, DEAD IN THE CITY OF ANGELS, with Jarret Liotta, and the post-EMP adventure story CHARGES, which will eventually pave the way for its sequel, RAVAGERS. And near the end of the year, EARTHFALL 2 should trundle across the post-nuclear landscape, bringing Andrews, Mulligan, Leona, Laird, Jordello, and some new SCEV team members into contact with one of the last bastions of human society. Don’t worry–Rachel Andrews gets left in Harmony this time.

And, of course, THE RETREAT series is in motion again, with Joe McKinney doing his magic as I write this, and Craig DiLouie has already plotted release #4.

Out here.

April is Autism Awareness Month…

Left With The Dead, A "Gathering Dead" Novella

Art for Left With The Dead, A “Gathering Dead” Novella. Artwork by Jared Rackler

…and both Gartrell and McDaniels want you to push Left with the Dead on everyone you know, because all proceeds for this month will be donated to Autism Speaks. The crusty first sergeant might have failed in his mission, but you can complete yours, and without fighting the dead. Autism is everywhere, folks. Do what you can to help the professionals figure it out, so parents with those afflicted might one day find some respite from the constant worry that always gnaws at them. And bonus points for helping those who have fallen victim to the disorder, as well!

For myself, my little boy was diagnosed with autism when he was about three. He doesn’t speak, has some emotional distress conditions, but he’s beautiful and happy. Poppa Knight and Momma Knight ship him off to the best schools in the area, and we keep him growing and learning as best as we can. Despite everything we do, though, his road will be a hard one. So give a kid a hand and tell folks there’s this little book out there that might add some pennies to the war effort, eh?

I don’t normally post personal pictures and the like here, but I’ll bust open the piggy bank this time. Say hello to my son, Brian.

Craig DiLouie Reviews EARTHFALL

EARTHFALL Print Cover...ain't it purty?

EARTHFALL Print Cover…ain’t it purty?

Something that I totally forgot to crow about…the inimitable Craig DiLouie posted a review of Earthfall! It’s a great honor to have a guy as savvy and brilliant as Craig give my work a thumbs-up, and for those who don’t know his work, check out the truly horrific and ultra-detailed Tooth and Nail and his excellent Infection series, The Infection and The Killing Floor. Craig also just announced a prime-time publishing deal with Simon & Schuster for his upcoming novel, Suffer the Children, which sounds pretty damned frightening. (The book, of course–not the deal.)

Here’s some of what Craig has to say about Earthfall:

[Knight] raises the technical and military detail in his books completely off the Michael Crichton scale and to the point of fetish, which is good for me as a reader, because I love a tense, action-packed apocalyptic story told with extreme realism. On every page, you know you are being told a story by a guy who knows his business. The all-terrain fighting machines the Harmony explorers use to cross the wastelands are virtually characters in the book, and I loved every minute of screen time they had. They’re fantastic–the ultimate ROAD WARRIOR vehicles. Knight’s attention to detail and realism also means his characters don’t do anything that has you slapping your head in disbelief. From the steady Captain Andrews to the haunted veteran Mulligan, they’re stark, likable, tough.

Thanks a million, bro!

Well, it happened quicker than I’d expected, but Earthfall is now in print!

Link to the product in Amazon’s Create Space book area: https://www.createspace.com/4174997

Should be available in other markets fairly shortly, and I expect it to be listed on Amazon with the Kindle title shortly.

And now…back to writing!
