Last year, I attended the inaugural Imaginarium convention in Louisville, KY. I was finally able to meet long time on-line friend Armand Rosamilia. I also met Jay Wilburn and Jack Wallen. We all hit it off pretty well, shared a panel on zombies, and ate at a White Castle. If a man will eat White Castle with you, he’ll die for you too…
As we were packing up the tables to head out, we discussed meeting up at a few cons in 2015 to hang out. We kept in touch and then one day we had an idea…
We decided to write a round-robin horror novel together. What started out as an innocent idea turned into a twisted bloodbath through an evil Wonderland full of Velvet Elvis pictures and huge movie stars. We threw in some demons and wicked books to make Solomon’s quest to film his masterpiece truly come to life.
And thus, Hollywood Hellmouth, was born.
Solomon wanted to make the greatest horror movie ever. He was willing to do anything to make this a reality – even unleashing real, apocalyptic evil upon the Earth. Haunted bathrooms, Velvet Elvis gateways to Hell, demonic possession, problem actors, editing issues, social media, and Jimmy will plague his production, but nothing will stop his dreams.
Horror Humor from one twisted writer is too much… imagine four of them getting together like grade school kids drawing naughty pictures on the bathroom wall… you’ve been warned.
I’ve never really tried to write something that was considered horror/comedy, but this was so much fun there might be future installments. It is up for pre-order now at Amazon for a March 13th release and the paperback will debut at MidSouth Con 33 in Memphis, TN. the following week.
Next week, I’ll have my “State of the Page” address and give a couple of updates on a book being picked up and a new release coming.
