Day 21 – Eden’s Order Trilogy

Eden's Order Cover

Day 21 of #scrypthalloween shows the cover of my EDEN’S ORDER TRILOGY sans text. @dpipito did the art which depicts a tree that represents the tree of Knowledge in the Garden of Eden, but has hints of skin, blood, and bones to signify each novel within. This collection consists of the novels: FLESH AND LEFTOVERS, BLOOD THE SECOND HELPING, and BONES AT BREAKFAST. It also contains the spinoff short stories: ZOMBIE INCIDENTS, LEGENDS OF VAMPIRE, and IN CASE OF WEREWOLF, as well as a timeline of events.

It is available in print at lulu.com and Barnes and Noble sites, as well as in digital at Amazon…

Official description: In FLESH AND LEFTOVERS Gordon Lightcap and Moira Donatelli recruit survivors of #zombie incidents in preparation for something much more sinister.
BLOOD, THE SECOND HELPING takes the two on separate paths. Gordon seeks answers, assisted by an old flame. As they scour the globe in search of #vampire legends, Moira has aligned herself with Cain, but her goals are in question. BONES AT BREAKFAST places Gordon and Moira reluctantly working for the Russian military. Cases of #werewolf activity become obstacles in stopping Cain from finding the Garden of Eden.

Day 6 – In Case Of Werewolf

Bones At Breakfast In Case Of Werewolf Cover

Day 6 of #scrypthalloween looks at my short story spinoff IN CASE OF WEREWOLF. This was the third graphic novel that @dpipito and I coordinated with 10 artists, and it is now in text form as well. We had some very professional artists for the comic version, and the stories within were written as ones you’d tell around a campfire….

official description: Do your bones ache? Does your instinct sometimes prevail over rational thought? When night descends, do you feel “different”? If any of these are your symptoms, then you are not alone. You may have contracted lycanthropy, and when the moon rises, your inner beast will emerge. This short story is a spinoff of the novel “Bones At Breakfast” and is available at lulu.com in print or as part of the Eden’s Order Trilogy at Amazon or Barnes and Noble.


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

Day 9 – Werewolf Influences

werewolfWhile writing BONES AT BREAKFAST and its spinoff IN CASE OF WEREWOLF I was faced with some interesting obstacles.  I feared being able to pull it off in a way that would be unique to the lore, but remain truthful as well.  I revisited some stories from the past to see what they’d done, and made sure mine was something fresh and new.  Some of those influences are listed here.

Stephen King’s Silver Bullet was a great book.  It’s one of the first full novels I read at twelve years old, and it gave me nightmares for weeks.  I still recall the feeling of dread I had during those long restless nights.

Sega Genesis was a 16 bit gaming system that broke ground with some revolutionary gaming.  Its first game was called Altered Beast.  In it you were a Greek like god that had the ability to “power up,” and when you did you’d become closer to gaining the were powers of a wolf, bear, dragon, and more.  It’s still the coolest werewolf video game of which I know.

The Wolfman 2010 got scathed in the reviews it received, but for someone who is a huge fan of the original Lon Chaney Wolfman movies from the late 30s, it holds a special place in my heart.  It was a decent update to an old classic, and to me is highly enjoyable.

While I am writing I like to have a sip of something full of flavor, but relaxing.  Werewolf wine was good the first time I tried it, and I actually found this updated art bottle this week at the wine store.  It’s semidry with a bold kick.

Day 7 – Bones At Breakfast

Bones Cover

Werewolves are the focus for the next 3 days in #scrypthalloween.  So, for today I’m taking a look back at my third novel BONES AT BREAKFAST.

Gordon Lightcap and his allies are forced to work with a Russian government, who has their own agenda.  Their common goal is to end the goals of a madman once and for all, but the threat has taken a deadlier form.  Backed by an army of werewolves, their target Cain employs a plan to uncover the lost Garden of Eden.  But at what cost?  In a frantic race across the globe, can Lightcap and his team stop Cain from unveiling something humanity was banished from long ago?  There are reasons the truth remains buried…

BONES AT BREAKFAST is available in print at lulu.com and in digital form on Amazon.com
