I sort of stumbled across MANtastic Fiction by accident and when Dolorianne asked me to post something for the site, I was totally stumped. Even though I have a new book out, my second, Vampalicious, which is the sequel to my first book, Zombielicious, who really, besides me, cares, right? So what to write about?
I did just get back from an exhausting cross country road trip—from California to Miami—could I possibly write something interesting and funny about that? Not really. The only observation I made from the whole trip was that there are no longer glory holes in any public restrooms (not that I was looking). But, you can find a Waffle House, Subway or Dairy Queen, anywhere in America.
However, I am pleased as punch with the cover of my new book, (even though its already made it onto one of the worst book cover lists over on Goodreads—now both of my books have made a worst cover’s list!) so I’m going to take this opportunity to throw a shout out to the cover artist of Vampalicious, which was created by my talented friend, David Gilmore.
David drew exactly what I asked for and gave me a gazillion different options and choices to choose from and I couldn’t be happier with the final result. From doomsday lovers Joey and Walt passionately embracing within the mouth of a ferocious vampire, to my name autographed next to a vampire lipstick kiss—it really is perfection!
David does many different mediums of artwork, mostly body art work or hilarious sketches of the Real Housewives from Bravo TV. I feel so lucky and blessed that he did my cover and that I get to share my book with him. Thanks babe, you’re a superstar!
Please take some time to check out his awesome artwork. He has three different sites to visit. Check his work out at www.davidgilmorestudio.com, http://prettyontheoutside.typepad.com/gilmore/ and www.jesusbarbie.com and then, if you still have some time, check me out too, at www.timothymcgivney.com.
