Wow.'s "Hottest Books: September" thread now includes my YA zombie novel, Arrival of the Ageless.  I uploaded it to the site with only 2 days left to go in the month, and it still somehow made the list. 

The thread can be read here.

This site has been pretty incredible for me so far, and it's hard to believe the amount of support I've gotten.  My book has already improved quite a bit with all the feedback, and I'm really looking forward to seeing what other readers think of it. 

It's currently ranked 1096 on the site after starting out ranked 5630.  Not too shabby for my first 22 days on the site.

"The Breakfast Club...with zombies."

"The Breakfast Club...with zombies" is how I've started pitching my quirky new Young Adult zombie novel, "Arrival of the Ageless."  If anyone's interested in checking out the first five chapters, I've posted them on here:

Anyone registered on Authonomy can check the chapters out for free.  The site is owned and operated by HarperCollins, so I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that people there will take notice of the book. So far, I've gotten some really glowing reviews, and I've jumped over 250 places in the rankings in the first two days it's been up. Of course, there's still a long way for the book to go, but the reviews have helped to buoy my sagging spirits quite a bit. 

Reviews and six-star ratings would be greatly appreciated!  (Maybe even put it on your Authonomy shelf if you feel so inclined).  I'd love to let the rest of this book see the light of day sometime soon, and this could be a great way for that to happen.
