Hey guys! Before we get started, there's an interview and giveaway for a signed copy of Woven happening over at Read is the New Black. Today is the last day to enter! Head over there for more details.
New Release: The Afterlife Academy by Frank L. Cole!
Walter Prairie knows how to deal with bullies. He just has to beat them to the punch. But he doesn’t see the biggest hit of his life coming when he is struck dead by a bolt of lightning. Before Walter even knows what’s happened, he is sent to a Categorizing office, fast-tracked through the Afterlife Academy, and assigned as a Guardian Agent to protect a High-Level Target.
Walter's HLT, Charlie Dewdle, isn’t exactly the most popular kid in school. He’s what you might call paranormally obsessed. When Charlie finds an ancient book with spells that can be used to open the Gateway for demons to wreak havoc on earth, it’s up to him and Walter to fight an eclectic horde of enemies and protect humankind at all costs ...
I look forward to receiving my copy of this soon. Congrats, Frank!

What else am I up to this week? Probably going to catch a screening of The Scorch Trials and get a head start on winterizing. And writing. Always more writing. The good news on the zombie novel front is I have a cover designer! Now to keep working and let all the elements settle into place. Thank you for stopping by. Until next time!
Check out the interview and giveaway today! Who's up for studying at the Afterlife Academy? What are you doing this weekend?
I'm David, and ... "you kids won't last one day out in the Scorch."
