Best new TV show: Downton Zombie!

Downton Zombie

Not an actual show. But it should be!

England, 1914 . . .

LORD GRANTHAM: Something seems a bit off with the new footman, wouldn’t you say, my dear?

ZOMBIE: RRRGH! AARR!

LADY GRANTHAM: My word. Mr. Bates, look out!

ZOMBIE: MMRAAH!

MR. BATES: Perfectly all right, thank you. Don’t concern yourself.

LADY GRANTHAM: Thomas, go help Mr. Bates.

THOMAS: Begging your pardon, your ladyship, I’ll not be helping the likes of him if he’s been bit.

LORD GRANTHAM: He hasn’t been bitten yet. Bates, good chap, use your cane!

ZOMBIE: RAARGH!

MR. BATES: Very good, m’lord. (WHACK! WHACK!)

LORD GRANTHAM: In the HEAD, man! At once!

MR. BATES: (WHACK! WHACK! CRACK!)

ZOMBIE: Uuuurghh . . . (THUMP)

(They all stare.)

CARSON: My lord, would it be acceptable to barricade the staff in the kitchen?

LORD GRANTHAM: Perfectly acceptable, Carson. Meantime, shall we all retire to the drawing room?

Your vote: who would be the first to go?

Who do you think would be the first character to get bitten on Downton Zombie? Who should be first? Leave a comment!

Think life isn’t fair?

Life Isn't Fair“You can say, ‘Oh life’s not fair’ and complain and think the world owes you something. Or you can suck it up and just work a little bit harder than everyone else to achieve the things you want to achieve.”

–Nick Newell, mixed martial arts fighter

They’re finally here: Free ebooks with soundtracks!

The Case of the Green-Eyed Werewolf by Laurence MacNaughtonFor years, it seems like publishers have been promising ebooks with audio tracks — books with the added dimension of sound. Is the world ready for them? Heck, yeah!

My new short story — “The Case of the Green-Eyed Werewolf” — is pretty much overflowing with snarling werewolves, gunshots, running footsteps, even music from the club where Jazzy used to sing before she became a private detective. It’s one of the most-read new stories on Booktrack right now.

And you can experience it right in your Chrome browser — for free. How cool is that?

Just go to Booktrack.com.

By the way, I also recommend checking out “Dagon” by H.P. Lovecraft — it’s SUPER creepy with sound effects.
