ON THE SECOND DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME, 2 VAMPIRES…

Samson And Delilah - art by Dan Pipito

…and zombies in a story.

Cain and Lilith are just the beginning of the vampire lineage in BLOOD, THE SECOND HELPING.  This novel and its spinoff LEGENDS OF VAMPIRE are the perfect gift for any fan of the lore and historical events.  Artwork shown at the right was done by Dan Pipito for the graphic novel version of the spinoff.

There’s still time to order a copy of one of my books for yourself or a friend for the holidays.  If you want personalized copies then shoot me an email (Rickpipito@hotmail.com), otherwise they can be purchased in print or digital at Lulu.com or on Amazon.

ON THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME ZOMBIES IN A STORY…

Just Another Freak (art by Dan Pipito)

And a perfect novel with plenty of zombie madness is FLESH AND LEFTOVERS.  Shown is artwork that my brother Dan Pipito did for the graphic novel spinoff ZOMBIE INCIDENTS a few years back.

I’m just nostalgic I guess and love the old Christmas classic tunes.  So, in going with that theme I’ve come up with my own 12 Days of Christmas.  Of course this can be applied to any holiday of the season, but works with the song of the same name.

It’ll be a fun time. @buckscountylibrary #buckscountylibrary #bensalemlibrary #doylestownlibrary #author #reading #book #novel


Day 30 – The Thirst Of Cain (Cover Concept)

thirst

Day 30 of #scrypthalloween – here’s a rough layout @dpipito did for the cover of my next novel THE THIRST OF CAIN. Readers demanded more of the villain, and since there was a time travel element to the last book, I was able to work in a story where we see Cain’s path to becoming that villain. The murder of his brother Abel is just the beginning. Release date in May 2018. #book #novel #coverart #conceptart #concept

Day 28 – Create It, Plate It, Style It, Eat It, Love It

Homemade Delish

Day 28 of #scrypthalloween shows a promo book we did for @homemadedelish called CREATE IT, PLATE IT, STYLE IT, EAT IT, LOVE IT. It had a handful of Roberta’s recipes and even though it is no longer available in print, her status on local and national television, radio and more has followers wanting a full cookbook soon. Make sure to follow her for all her fun adventures in food, drink, and lifestyle.


Day 27 – sCrypt Publishing

sCrypt logo

Day 27 of #scrypthalloween looks at sCrypt Publishing as a whole. The logo, designed by @dpipito , was originally used only on the spinoff comics, but since we’ve grown and now have services that include editing, advice, cover art, and assisted publishing, it has become our “Script within the Crypt of the mind.” sCrypt Publishing brings those deep, creative thoughts out for new adventures every day. Check more out on my site http://www.rickpipito.com or drop me an email for inquiries. #publishing #book


Day 26 – A Little Boy In The Land of The Sleepless Knights

knights

Day 26 of #scrypthalloween looks at my children’s book A LITTLE BOY IN THE LAND OF THE SLEEPLESS KNIGHTS. @dpipito returns with more awesome artwork for a tale I wrote for my son. My goal was to write a bedtime story that made children realize that they can go on many adventures in their dreams.

It’s available in print and digital at Lulu.com, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble…

official description: When a young boy refuses to sleep he finds himself trapped in the Land of Sleepless Knights. This is where all children go when they don’t get enough rest. Can he figure out how to escape in time or will he turn into one of the Knights and be consumed by the Cranky King?


Day 25 – A Little Girl In The Land Of The Hiccups

image

Day 25 of #scrypthalloween shows my first children’s book A LITTLE GIRL IN THE LAND OF THE HICCUPS. I wrote this story for my daughter, Lana, and it quickly became a reader favorite. With outstanding watercolor artwork by @dpipito it brought my writing into a whole new genre.

Available at lulu.com, Amazon, and B&N in print and digital…

official description: When a little girl finds herself a long way from home, she must help her new Eskimo friends to rid their land of the Hiccups, miniscule little creatures that are more of an annoyance than anything. From award winning author, Rick Pipito, the story is aimed for a young female audience, but can be enjoyed by all. With art by Dan Pipito, this heart warming tale will inspire young readers to never give up hope and put their best thoughts forward.


Day 24 – No, It’s Not. Yes, It Is: Arguments

argue

Day 24 of #scrypthalloween goes in a different direction with my nonfiction book NO, IT’S NOT. YES, IT IS: ARGUMENTS. For the cover, I took two opposite pics of my face and merged them into what you see here. It was my goal to present a funny take on arguing with some unbiased facts from each side, and some stories from my own life.

I will have to update it with a newer version soon, but in its original glory it’s available in print and digital at Lulu.com and Amazon…

official description: Do you know that argument you have that never goes away? Is there someone you know who always seems to fight with others? When you try to debate something, do you lack enough facts? If you answered, “yes,” to any of these questions, then this book is for you. Take an adult journey with author, Rick Pipito, through some very common disputes to see both sides of the story. People argue over things because they are opinionated. This happens often when a person can’t see the opposite point of view. In an unbiased attempt to extinguish some fiery tempers, this book presents each chapter with a few personal, and humorous experiences. Facts are evenly displayed for both sides, in order to truly define where one stands. Movies, politics, religion, science, etiquette, sports and more, may be some things you see a little differently or more concretely by the end of this book.
