Local Author Expo 2019

IMG_6660[1]I was invited to return again for my fourth time in the annual Bucks County (PA) Library Local Author Expo.  This year was even better as my daughter joined me at the table.

While I was signing books and talking about writing with visitors to my spot, my daughter was selling prints of a couple of her works.  It was a fun bonding experience for me and her, and a great learning and confidence builder for her 11 year old artsy self.  She loved it and I hope she’ll join me again because others loved her too!

On the 5th Day of Christmas…

A-Soul-Possessed-The-True-Story-of-the-Exorcism-of-Anneliese-MichelON THE FIFTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME… 5 DEMON SPAWNS!

Okay, so Christmas is not about demons at all, but my novel DEVIL’S DESSERT or its spinoff short DEMONIC ENTITIES make for great gifts.  This was perhaps the most extensive research I’ve had to do for any of my books because I wanted to respect all faiths.  I spent months reading the various main texts and made notes comparing them.  There were so many similarities among them that I even went back further into polytheism and saw a common origin point.  It is quite intriguing to say the least.  Depicted on the left is Anneliese Michel.  She died at the age of 23 with the causes believed to have been demonic possession.  Look up her story as it is too much to post here.  Do you think she was possessed or had some sort of mental disease?

Order a copy of my novel or short for yourself or a friend.  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.


Day 5 – Bones At Breakfast

Bones Cover

Day 5 of #scrypthalloween takes a look at my novel BONES AT BREAKFAST. This book proved to be more of a challenge to write than the prior two because I felt limited by the subject. I thought it was difficult to make it feel grounded, but then decided that by explaining the origins of mythology and fairy tales I could make it work. It became my easiest book to write. @dpipito did this cover art (sans text) to keep with the theme of the trilogy…….

 

official description: Gordon Lightcap and his team are caught in an uneasy alliance. By working alongside Russian General, Alexander Putski, they hope to stop the forces that Cain left in his wake. Unbeknownst to them however, is the fact that Cain is still alive. In his new form, he is an even greater threat than before and one step closer to his goal. #werewolf #werewolves #novel #novels #eternalhungersaga #scryptpublishing #book


Shifting Gears: A book release update

2017 has been extremely interesting and productive so far, but it also has forced me to alter the schedule a little in terms of my novels and books.  This is actually for the better, as there will be more projects released, but focuses on shorter stories so that the longer ones can have more time to develop.  Here’s what is currently in progress and estimated release dates:

THE THIRST OF CAIN – Book 11 in the Eternal Hunger Saga is being pushed back from Fall 2017 to Spring 2018.  I decided to use more historical events to make this feel like a direct sequel to BLOOD, THE SECOND HELPING and A COURSE FOR HUMANITY; as well as being a great stand alone entry.  This means much more research of course, so in order to not rush the final product I’m taking my time to properly represent historical events in different eras.

DIGESTED CONCEPTS – This won’t be released until 2019, but I began work on it now.  I’ve gone through and reread all of my previous novels to touch on each concept in them.  This will be a non-fiction companion book to the series.  It will go through a behind the scenes look at what’s in the saga from the start of my writing career to the end of the Eternal Hunger Saga (including details on all 12 novels, spinoff short stories, and the trilogy releases)

THE LOST HOUR – A short story spinoff of A COURSE FOR HUMANITY, which will delve into the back story to the first successful trip through time, and dealing with the consequences.  This will be released in late October of this year.

UPSIDE DOWN DAYS – My daughter came up with an amazing story for a children’s book, so I’m working with her for a November release of this year.  She’s hashed out the plot and I’m helping tweak the story and write it.  She will also be illustrating the pages, and I couldn’t be more excited to do this with her.

THE LOST DAY – A short story spinoff of THE THIRST OF CAIN, that will be released one month after the novel next year.  It will touch on an event mentioned in the main story, but not actually featured.

There is of course a plethora of other things in the works, but to which I can’t yet go into detail.  Feel free to share your current projects and stay tuned.


Day 7 of #authorlifemonth – Cover Inspiration

The cover for my upcoming novel A COURSE FOR HUMANITY is better understood when reading it, but for the design I was inspired by this sculpture in Washington DC.  It is called “Continuum” and couldn’t be more appropriate, as that is a government entity within the novel.  Book will be released in March 2017.

Day 4 of #authorlifemonth – WIP

Day 4 of #authorlifemonth is a teaser of my current WIP (Work In Progress).  The novel (A COURSE FOR HUMANITY) will be released next month, and the selection I’ve chosen to show is more appropriate now than ever.
