Author Armand Rosamilia Hits Unsuspecting Readers with a DOUBLE TAP

I’m honored to be in the upcoming charity anthology “Let’s Scare Cancer to Death” with Armand Rosamilia- author of numerous books, including the “Dying Days” & “Flagler Beach Fiction” series.

I discovered yesterday that Armand was doing a two-for-one deal on two novellas written by himself and the talented Tim Baker: Dying Days: Siege 1 & Siege 2, boxed set. Talk about a double whammy, a double tap, a proverbial quick two-punch to the jaw! What’s the price you ask? Are you sitting down? Feeling crazy generous, Armand’s basically giving away these two books for 99 cents! Get it why you can, because (sooner or later) Armand will come to his senses and make the boxed set more expensive.

A bit about Armand Rosamilia:

Armand Rosamilia is a New Jersey boy currently living in sunny Florida, where he writes when he’s not watching the Boston Red Sox and listening to Heavy Metal music… and because of him they won the 2013 World Series, so he’s pretty good at watching! He’s written over 100 stories that are currently available, including a few different series: “Dying Days” extreme zombie series, “Keyport Cthulhu” horror series, “Flagler Beach Fiction Series” contemporary fiction, “Metal Queens” non-fiction music series. He also loves to talk in third person… because he’s really that cool. He’s a proud Active member of HWA as well. You can find him at for not only his latest releases but interviews and guest posts with other authors he likes! E-mail him to talk about zombies, baseball and Metal:

A bit about Tim Baker:

Tim Baker was born and raised in Warwick, Rhode Island. Currently, Tim is enjoying life in Palm Coast, Florida. After graduating from The Wentworth Institute of Technology in 1980 he embarked on a career in Architecture and Engineering. Along the way he has also worked in the natural gas industry, construction and ice cream sales. In his spare time he enjoys a wide variety of activities including sports of all kinds, music, photography, model building and, of course, writing. An avid dog lover, Tim was a volunteer puppy raiser for Guiding Eyes for the Blind, raising and socializing potential guide dogs. He has also studied and taught martial arts. Inspired by his interest in Karma and the unexplained forces of the universe, he made his first serious attempt at writing in 1988 when he began writing a novel entitled Full Circle, a story about the far reaching effects that one man’s actions can have on people he has never even met. Unfortunately without the use of a computer or even a typewriter he shelved the project due to the difficulties of trying to construct a novel completely by hand. Even though Living the Dream is his first published novel he plans on completing Full Circle once his next novel Water Hazard is published.

On January 11th, something magical began: An event that serves a singular purpose- to provide members of the United States Military Services Branches with books- piles and piles of printed text containing beautiful stories to help our soldiers leave the battle behind and travel somewhere amazing in their minds.  


(Armand Rosamilia took on the ASOT mantel from author Joe McKinney)


It’s so easy to let a year pass quickly, consumed by our own needs and desires, without pause and care for those in the world facing adversity and struggle. Combine that adversity and struggle with homesickness, the burden of freedom and shrapnel in the shoulder and you get the picture of a deployed troop. Armand Rosamilia has given all of us an opportunity to show our true colors. Are yours red, white and blue?

ASOT 2014 is entering its last month of signed-by-the-author book collections and monetary donations to cover overseas shipping costs. So far, Armand has got an ever-growing pile of books (and an equally large pile of empty post boxes, I’m sure). The last count he provided on the Facebook event page ( was 136 authors donating and 1,136 books and that was a week ago! I’m sure the number has risen and the event still has 4 weeks to go! I keep wondering… will the event break the 2,000 books donated mark? Wouldn’t that be amazing? 2,000 books lovingly signed by caring authors shipping to our boys and girls in uniform; can you imagine how many pages will get creased, how many laughs will lighten the war-zone air, how many flashlights will stay on a little too long to read ‘one more page?’

The ASOT 2014 event page has gathered 444 attendees and supporters with more than one veteran commenting on how much reading books meant to them during deployment. Letters and calls from home, while wonderful and heart-warming, can also increase the homesickness and oppression of the overseas environment. A book though, full of imagination and creation, can provide an escape, just the escape a soldier may need to remain sane.

Donating a signed book, purchasing an ASOT 2014 shirt, giving monies for shipping- such small things to bring a soldier a piece of a different world, a peace of mind.

Freedom is heavy, let’s lighten the load.

Valentine’s Day 2014 EAT YOUR HEART OUT (instead of chocolate)

eat your heart out poster

Don’t forget to spend your day of love the right way- by hopping over to facebook and hitting the EAT YOUR HEART OUT event. 30 authors, 30+ books, almost all priced at 0.99 USD for one day only!

Among the authors are a few of my favorites (Including ME & my debut Dead Trees)! Notably- the super talented Claire C. Riley. Claire’s first novel Limerence, is a dark paranormal romance and has strong elements of psychological horror.

Claire has tried to go back to basics with her writing, incorporating an old school style of horror and romance. Sexy and dark. (Think Bram Stokers Dracula, and George R Romero, but for the 21st century!)

She’s also published the rocking ODIUM- get ready to encounter zombies in a fresh new way. Odium released October 4th 2013. A short prequel to Odium called Life Ever After, was released in an anthology entitled Fusion, along with some other amazing Indie authors on the 31st August 2013.

When you’re done with Odium and Life Ever After, I know you’ll want to buy Odium Origins. A Dead Saga novella. Trust me when I say that it will keep you reading; you literally won’t be able to put it down!

She is also working on the sequel to Limerence, which is creatively (?) named Limerence II: Mia, the sequel to Odium, a standalone romantic horror book tentatively named Chance Encounters and a hundred and one creepy stories. All will be released from January 2014 onwards, so keep your eyes peeled for more work.


These are the 30 authors in this extravaganza.
