In Broad Daylight - Episode 14 and Vlade returns!

Join the Armada!Join the Armada!This week the podcast got a little away from me.

You know how he gets by now, don’t you?

Anyway, he’s fixated on the K7 line (206-350-4998). Please use it.

--Your Boy

Guest Post - Jeremy Robinson Visits and Gives Away a Kindle!!

What's up, everybody? Your boy here today to introduce you to a good friend of mine, author Jeremy Robinson. Not only does Jeremey have a whole sack of great books you might like, but he's also the man who first published Jack Wakes Up way back when. Yep, he was the man behind Breakneck Books. So, that said, let's give Jeremy your eyeballs...

Welcome to Jeremy Robinson’s Great Kindle Giveaway and Blog Tour.

“Hurray for free Kindles!” you say, but who the hell is Jeremy Robinson? Allow me to introduce myself. I’m the author of eleven mixed genre novels, published in ten languages, including the popular fantasy YA series, THE LAST HUNTER, and the fast-paced Jack Sigler series (also known as Chess Team—not nearly as nerdy as it sounds), PULSE, INSTINCT and THRESHOLD from Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martin’s Press. I’m the co-author of an expanding series novellas deemed the Chesspocalypse, which take place in the Chess Team universe. If that doesn’t wet your whistle, I’m also known as Jeremy Bishop, the #1 horror author of THE SENTINEL and the controversial novel, TORMENT. For more about me, or my books, visit

I have watched for years as my fellow authors held online events called blog tours. Some would visit ten blogs. Others, as many as ninety. And every day they would bring something different, waxing eloquent about a multitude of topics. When I finally decided to have a blog tour of my own, and settled on doing each and every weekday in October, my first thought was, “This will be cool,” which was immediately followed up by, “Holy crap, I can’t think of something interesting to say twenty times in one month!” I can barely think of something worthwhile for my own blog just once a month. The solution is what follows; each blog participating in the tour could ask me ANY three questions. That means, if the subject matter bores you, I’m not to blame! Huzzah!

But fear not. There are other rewards for sloughing through the questions and answers. I’ll be giving away two Kindles to two randomly selected readers who sign up for my newsletter. Details on the giveaway can be found below. On to the Q&A!

1) Tell us about your new book: what it's about, what genre you'd call it.

The new book, written under my horror pen name, Jeremy Bishop, is THE SENTINEL. When a whaling ship and an anti-whaling ship collide and sink in the Arctic waters north of Greenland, the few survivors find themselves marooned on an island that has just recently been freed from the Arctic ice. As they fight to survive the horrible conditions, and a hungry polar bear, they discover the island’s other residents—the draugar—are waking up.

The draugar are cool because they’re the basis of all modern zombie AND vampire stories. They’re the original undead and feature aspects of both modern incarnations. So it’s pretty horrible, and scary. But THE SENTINEL is also very funny. The main character, Jane Harper, is very sarcastic and has some creative uses for four letter words. It’s really a fast-paced good time.

2) If you had to pick three favorite all-time crime writers, who would you pick and why?

This is a really hard question for one very glaring reason. I don’t read a lot of crime fiction. With my schedule, I don’t get to read a ton anyway, so when I do it’s usually books in my genres (creature/thriller/horror) so I can keep up with what’s happening and be inspired. I also tend to shy away from anything that could be real. Stories tend to infect my mind while I’m reading them and books that are true to life can really freak me out. I recently read THE SHEPHERD, a serial killer crime novel for my friend Ethan Cross. It’s one of the few crime stories I’ve read and it really did make me paranoid. I had trouble sleeping while reading it. I doubled checked the locks on the doors and all frikken windows every night. So, in a way, it’s a great book, but it the effect on my mind was profound. I think I’d also say that Lisa Gardner is a favorite crime author, but that’s mostly because she’s a nice lady and a fellow New Hampsherite. And of course, there’s this Seth Harwood guy, but I think the folks here know all about him. Hey, that was three!

3) If your book was a crime novel, how would you pitch it? What crime books does it remind you of?
