Hey all! Hope you’re having a great week so far. I just wanted to mention a fund raising group that my friend Andrew Wolter runs: The Horror Against AIDS Toy Drive. Please head on over to the site, read about it and donate something if you can. No amount is too small. And if you can’t make a donation, just spreading the word would be hugely appreciated. Thanks in advance to anyone willing to help out in any way and to Andrew for putting the whole thing together. It’s a great cause!
And don’t forget to enter my giveaway if you haven’t already. Free books! Just check out the post below.
See ya soon!
Hey guys! How’s everyone doing today? The weekend treating you well? I’ve been pretty busy with work stuff, getting ready for the holidays and a nice long vacation but I’ve decided to do something I’ve never done before: give books away for the holidays!
I’m going to hold a huge giveaway contest, with the winner receiving every print book I’ve written that I have in my possession (which I think is all of them)- even the out of print stuff. That’s something like 12 books! They’ll be signed and/or inscribed or neither, if that’s how you want them.
I’ll also have three runner-up winners that’ll get to choose one of several available titles.
The contest will run from right now until Sunday, December 18, 2011, 12 midnight, PST.
And here is all you have to do to be entered: reply to this post saying you wish to be entered and be sure to leave me a way to contact you. Email, facebook, whatever. Only one entry per person, but as an added bonus, IF you share the contest on facebook or twitter (and provide a link as proof) you can earn more entries, one for every time you share it.
The winners will be chosen at random and notified on Monday, December 19 and will have 72 hours to respond.
I hope you all enter and wish you lots of luck!
Thanks and have a great day! 🙂
Hey all! Just popping in to let you know I have a brand new story in the just released anthology Metahumans vs the Undead. My story is called “Halo of Blood” and it features a character I think you’ll be seeing a lot more of in the not-too-distant future. I’m sharing a TOC with a lot of great writers, including Eric S. Brown, Keith Gouveia, Lorne Dixon and many more. So, if you dig either superheros and/or zombies, you should be in undead, caped heaven with this book.
I hope you guys check it out soon in either paperback or Kindle. Thanks and have an amazing weekend!
Hey gang! How’s your fall going so far? It is cold, gray and wet here in the PNW. Perfect Halloween weather. I’ve been drinking my pumpkin spice coffee and dodging the pinecones that keep trying to clobber me and my dog. Also, writing. Lots and lots of writing. Hopefully I’ll have news to share on that front soon, but for now….
My new collection of stories, Brainfused Colorwheel, has just been released in Kindle format. It has some of my earliest stories, as well as some of my shortest (flash) stories and, what I believe are some of my BEST stories. Some are weird, some are gross, some are disturbing, some are funny. I think there’s something in there for everyone.
Many years ago, I was sent random objects in the mail and asked to write a story about them for an anthology. Well, the antho never happened, but the story remains and it has not been read by many people at all, and it’s included here. I wonder if any of you guys will be able to guess which one it is.
If you’ve been reading my stuff for a long time, some of these stories will be familiar to you. But I’m still sure some will be brand new to even the most longtime reader.
Either way, I hope you check it out. And how about that killer art from artist extraordinaire, Gary McCluskey? Gotta love it, right?
So, until next time, keep the fires burning. You never know when I might pop in and offer to break open a bottle of Old Crow with ya. 🙂
Hello my little chickadees! Just popping in quickly to give you all the great news that Dark Surge in now 20% off over at the Dark Regions site. Just head on over there and use the coupon code RANALLI20 and-presto!-it’s yours.
Definitely browse the site a bit too while you’re there. There’s bound to be something that catches your fancy.
I’m not sure how long this sale will last, so if you’ve been on the fence about DS, now might be a good time to snatch a copy and find out just how twisted my little brain can really be. (hint-it’s pretty twisted.)
OK, ciao ciao for now, kids. Have a stellar weekend! ❤
Couple of new reviews for my Delirium novella Unearthed have just been brought to my attention. I’m happy to say they’re good ones.
The first one is from Literary Mayhem , which is always a good place to catch up on the latest releases in the horror genre.
Next up is The Horror Review , another fantastic site to keep up with all things spooky and gross.
Huge thanks to both reviewers for taking the time to check out my little story. Honest reviews are always, always appreciated.
Also, for all you Kindle users, I’m happy to inform you that Unearthed in now available for 18% off at Amazon. Every penny counts in this economy, right?
Hope you guys are all having an amazing humpday and I’ll talk to you again soon! ❤
Howdy gang! How’s the weekend treating you so far? I’m pounding coffee and getting ready to let my feisty muse out of her cage and let her run wild for a couple days. She’s a bit of a Tasmanian devil most of the time.
But anyway! I come bearing fantastic news for zombie fans and folks who dig my writing in general. For a limited time, you can grab my zombie novel Praise the Dead for just 99 cents on Kindle, Nook, Apple, etc. This is a great deal and I sincerely hope that if zombies are your thing, you check it out and let me know what you think. I’m pretty fond of the little brain-munchers myself so I was really happy when Coscom Entertainment let me put my own new spin on them.
Thanks in advance to everyone who checks it out. Happy reading and always remember, AIM FOR THE HEAD!
Boom it’s June!
Back again with more news. You can now order the digital version of Unearthed from Darkside Digital. It’s $4.99 and available for your Kindle, Nook, iPad, Sony Reader, computer and probably anything else you can think of. I bet you could read it on the reflection of a puddle if you wanted to. So, save a tree and go download it now. I can’t wait to hear what you think!
As always, mad love for you guys! Hope your week is outstanding!
Hey all! How was everyone’s long weekend? Mine was fairly uneventful but this morning I have a cool new review to share with you (look at me, busting out the rhymes!) Courtesy of Carson Buckingham and Shroud Magazine Book Reviews you can check out the latest review for my haunted house novel, House of Fallen Trees. It’s a good one and I’m beyond happy that so many people have enjoyed this story. If you haven’t already, I hope you check it out soon.
Many thanks to Carson and Shroud!
Now I must procure coffee and get on to the next creepy, weird tale. Have a good one, guys!
The first review of my forthcoming Delirium novella, Unearthed has just hit the ethereal super-highway and it’s a good one. The reviewer compared it to King’s The Mist (among others), which is pretty dang sweet. Check out the review HERE. Many thanks to Crow’s Caw and Nick Cato for the kind words and support and don’t forget to grab a copy asap from Horror Mall. I don’t know how many copies they have left, but I know they’re dwindling and I’m not sure when this story will be reprinted. Plus, it’s an amazing little mini-hardcover, signed by me and definitely collectible.
Hope you all are having a stupendous weekend and happy mother’s day to all the moms out there. 🙂
