Blaze McRob

Book description:

Revenge is sought by a wicked witch.
Angel's tears come at a fevered pitch.
A little mouse can lead the way.
A wandering owl flies far away.
Scales of justice are magically painted.
A sister acts from a mind that's tainted.
A bottle wobbles on a child's head;
While you read of the ooky and the dead.

Since I can't let Terri DelCampo have all the fun with poems, here's one I did a while back. I hope you enjoy it. This is suitable for children of all ages.

Baby Fox

The baby fox leaps in the air,
Intent on play, without a care,
For mother fox is watching near,
So her sweet son should have no fear.

With brother fox and sister too,
He jumps and skips 'mongst tall grass dew.
Up in the air his red coat shines,
The sun not blocked by distant pines.

This little vale does care for all.
The trees around create a wall,
And food and water here abound.
From outside world there is no sound.

The little one now needs to rest,
For he is tired from all his jest.
Yet into nest he does not go,
For high above, white clouds do show.

They dance about with changing shapes,
And first appear as lambs with capes.
The fluffy lambies dance about,
And cause the little kits to shout.

And weary though they all might be,
They mimic lambs and dance with glee.
But soon their fluffy friends depart,
And other shapes before them dart.

Animals, all shapes and sizes,
Weave about and leave their prizes.
High above in deep blue wonder,
Fleecy clouds do show their splendor.

But now the time has come for sleep,
And mother fox does take them deep,
Into the den which is their home,
Where she has built a safety dome.

So little fox does nod and yawn,
For in his bed he'll sleep 'til dawn.
Brother, sister, and his mother,
Gathered round with love will smother.

The Oatmeal shows us some very important facts about coffee. For example: where it is grown, what color the beans actually are, where the term "cup of Joe" came from, and more. It does not explain, however, why people in Wyoming make fun of me - a transplanted Jersey boy -  when I say coffee. They are rude people and must be killed off in my next novel.

Bad news: I moved to Georgia and they make fun of my New Jersey accent here too when I say coffee. More people to kill off; more novels to write.

What is this doing here? It's pretty obvious to me. All great authors drink coffee. Go to The Oatmeal and read this and other posts. Tell them Blaze sent you. And yes, I do drink coffee.

Cancer is frightening enough, and this anthology is definitely well on the way to achieving its title—and scaring cancer to death! As with any anthology, I enjoyed some tales more than others, but recommend them all. Who knew there were so many takes on Zombies? Or mystic cancer treatments? Or survival...and death?

We’ve all been touched by cancer in some way and these stories contain characters to cheer and cry for. At times, they’ll make your heart hurt. But don’t worry...there’s a zombie around the next corner! This volume is a must read for any horror fan.

By fluffyredfox on May 9, 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
All the author dedications are heart breaking, so many people’s lives are touched by the dreaded big C. Here is to finding a cure, fast.

Z Children by Eli Constant: It is the start of the zompoc and Suz, Dad and the twins must make it out of town to their boat whilst dodging the zombies who are primarily children.
The reasons for the start of the zompoc are really well laid out, the back story made me care for this little family so the ending was a real shock.
I really enjoyed this writing style so another author to be on the lookout for.

Of the Dead by Alyn Day: a toughened foraging unit comes across a child “zed”; or is she just a wild child trying to survive?
As many of the unit are mourning fathers the emotions brought to the surface on the trip back to base and the scientists are really well played out by the author.
I love the twisted endings, so not expected. Another fantastic writer.

Memories by Heath Stallcup: the author physically brings you along for the ride on this tale as he drags you around a research facility whilst he unloads his story upon you.
The sordid tale carried on around me and I was so absorbed that the ending, again, gave me a real thump to the heart.
HS has managed to pull off a spectacular PoV perspective with not even the slightest error. Not surprisingly he is already one of my favourite authors.

Project Arizona by Greg Carrico: poor Henry, he is a sad and misplaced man in a long line of hidden experiments, of which the author keeps us in the dark about.
But the telltale zombie theme is there, along with a strange flensing obsession.
A strange little late that has an even weirder ending. Not sure what I read but I really liked it!

Just Life by T.Fox Dunham: “dragging its colon behind like a dead snake” – has to be my favourite line from the whole book, it made me feel a little nauseous and smile at the same time.
Robert, the main character, has just recovered from a strange surgery where his tumour went wild and attacked a surgeon!
Now Retribution has begun which looks suspiciously like a George Romero film set.
Essentially this is a beautiful love story another really fantastic ending.

Choices by Claire C. Riley: Adam had completed his cancer treatment but now all Hell has broken loose and he is unable to find out his final test results.
He risks life and limb to try and find his medical notes but thankfully there is Old Yella to help him out.
The moral of the story seems a little undone at the end but wow I really enjoyed the characters in this one.

Dying Days Mortality by Armand Rosamila: two good men are trying to do right by their dying wives.
A dilemma is set before one of them and a decision is made.
The emotions run really high in this book and AR does not shy away from rubbing your face right in there.

Gift Wrapped Box by Catie Rhodes: Kathleen just keeps getting more Hell heaped upon her as she falls for some mumbo jumbo about a cure for her terminal cancer, which actually turns out to be soul eaters!
Not to mention her wicked neighbor is trying to kill her kitten.
A blast from the past and she has a chance to put all things right and as she faces down a massive demon she gets more than she hoped for.
A sad but brilliant ending, really enjoyed the complexity of the story and certainly nothing run of the mill.

Tunnel by J. Thorn: not sure about this story as I really disliked one of the three characters and the other two were just meh for me. Plus the story never really went anywhere IMO.

One Lonely Night by Chantal Boudreaux: Quinn is dying from cancer, but all he desires is death by zombie.
With all the pain surrounding him he is set on his mission and CB does nothing to shy you away from being witness to this painfully honest tale.

Sweet Release by Mark Tufo: Ted’s life is over; his body just needs to catch up.
Kindness seems to be lacking all around him and just one small moment is all he wants.
The tenderness with which this tale is written really made my heart ache.

Uncle by Michael James Macfarland: crippled Uncle has a secret that he brought back from the war.
His constant care is sucking the life from those around him.
The slow but steady build up gives a good indication of what the end will be but it’s still a cracker.

The Legacy by Julianne Snow: they say when you get a terminal diagnosis you begin the grieving process for your own loss of life, one stage of that is anger.
This is the tale of a chap who gets stuck at that stage. Of all these little stories, this one really scared me.

The Judas Contingent by Blaze McRob: my heart bleeds for this wonderfully strong and brave man (the author not the fiction – of all the dedications and bios this one really touched me).
Revenge is the main drive for this story, a well written piece that left me wondering just who are the good guys.

My Name is Charles by TW Brown: what’s worse than dying cancer in the zompoc? Adding dementia into the mix.
Poor fella, having to relive the intial horror over and over again. Fantastic idea with some great writing.

Survival by Rhonda Hopkins: from a bad start where they are captured for who knows what reason Dana and her twin, Sarah, manage a dramatic escape with the help of Meredith. Shame the poor girl is suffering the after effects of chemo treatment.
As the struggle to survive in this new world of horrors occurs the relationship and animosity of work colleagues surfaces adding that emotional twist to the story.
Whilst gore and horror is not lacking in this well written tale it is the emotions that play front and center.

The whole book has a well put together feel to it. I do hope this continues to raise lots of money so that “we” really can Scare Cancer to Death.

This blast from the past is a short post I had on my website a number of years back. It's still relevant today. This is a refreshing way to step out of the box.

                                                            *    *    *    *

I had just paid a bill and had thirty six minutes to wait before catching the next bus. It was almost 90 degrees and I needed something to drink. Ahah, there sat a bar across the street. Time for a cold beer.

They had WiFi in the place so I set my computer on the bar and went to my blog to do a little work. You can't really miss my main page, what with the flaming skull head and all, and one by one, I gathered a crowd. It seems there were a lot of horror fans there, and since I post free stories and even an online novel for all to read, they were all oohs and aahs. I bought my first beer. My fans paid for the rest. My thirty six minutes stretched close to four hours. I had six Budweiser pounders which at $3.50 each equalled $21.00. All of this was possible because I had my computer along. I exposed new fans to my works, created good will and future sales and made roughly what I would have for selling eight ebooks on Amazon.

I'm sure everyone has heard it's a good idea to carry around your paper books where they can be noticed.

Step outside the box. You can do more.

This Bud's for you!

Just in time for summer, Terri DelCampo and Blaze McRob have brought you a collection of horror  stories to make you squirm and itch in anticipation of the infestation to come. Assbiters From Hell has bugs you have never seen before. Where have they come from? C'mon, dearie, you know they're not from Heaven.

Blaze McRob

Book description:

Cricket's chirp brings comfort and luck.
Horny frats will even bugs fuck.

Night-night! Don’t let bedbugs…mate!
If they do, it will seal earth's fate.

Grasshoppers have serious dragon breath.
War within war humbles humans to death.

The war is on to dominate earth.
Insect key rings new protectors birth.

How far will a lonely woman go?
Clever idea provokes new foe.

Flies get murderous for a meal.
Acid shit makes human meat like veal

Terri DelCampo and Blaze McRob
Offer ass-biting insects that do the job.

They'll tenderize you and chomp away,
And fly off to find more humans to flay.

Be careful when you turn off, the light;
You never know when they'll come to bite

You right in the ass, so get that swatter
And can of Raid, or prepare to totter

On the brink of death, the edge of hell;
The bugs will nudge you and swore you fell.

Quarter Moon Haunts, is out for your reading pleasure. My editor, Terri DelCampo, says this is her favorite novel of mine to date. In fact, she fell in love with Ol' Mike Van Tassel, one of the main characters in this tome, and demands I write a sequel. I will. This novel deals with ghosts and horror and leaves nothing sacred. Join my ghost friends and me as we traverse the countryside in a big Ram truck. There are shenanigans galore, but there is the mission that must be accomplished. We never lose sight of the big picture.

As a warning, however. The ghosts in this novel drink beer. 

I hope you enjoy my tale.

Blaze McRob

Book description: 

 Out of the two-seat quarter moon
That invaded the authors living room
Fighting o'er ass-wipe they appear
Ol' Mike Van Tassel and Running Deer

Their stories the author has honed
Always in their names, not his own
About their so horrific deaths
Before breathing his own last breath.

Author's spirit his body leaves
John Doe on the toe tag; no one grieves.
Van Tassel and Running Deer by his side
As he mounts the Ram truck for wild ride.

They expose lies and rewrite lore
So misunderstood long before.
Once in depth of crisis heat
The red-haired angel they chance to meet.

Angel takes the author's hand
Lights his way through perils grand.
Will she remain by his side?
And save the spirits immortal hides?

Adventure and justice the spirits chase
Set wrongs to rights in immortal race.
Hop into the cab of the spirit Ram
And join the ghosts on eternal lam.

It has taken a long time for my novel '68 Buick to reach my readers. There have been many bridges to cross, obstacles tossed every which way, not only for myself but for others as well. It's not often that an author's life can relate to a fiction novel. With '68 Buick, however, that is the case. Truth and fiction were weaved together as I wrote this tale. I lived parts of it, embellished them, of course, and created monsters and heroes of imaginable dimension. My concept is unique. I portray the Grim Reaper in a whole new light, a man caught in a battle of good versus evil where strange allegiances are made. In this novel, I am the Reaper. I look in the mirror and see my face; I feel the hurt of others and work to fight for them; I am immortal, but I feel pain and angst.

If you are looking for a novel filled with action, good and evil people, and entities of every description, I believe you will enjoy my book. We provide a nice lengthy free sample on Amazon.

The fantastic cover art was done by Sue Midlock! Thanks, Sue.

Thank you Terri DelCampo, Quinn Cullen, Rebecca Boucher, and Beverly Cialone for your great work.

And, of course, thank you Dennis Lensing. You did a great job. I miss you, my friend. May we meet again in a better place. You certainly deserve my dedication.

Book description:

 Bob is a man forgotten by God,
Limbo the only afterlife he'll trod.

With the devil Bob deals to save his kids
And keep them safe off of Azazel's grid.

The brazen demon is trying to take
Hell's throne from Satan where doomed souls bake.

Bob's ex-wife's boyfriend's a witch of black magic
In league with Azazel, a team quite tragic.

Will he offer as sacrifice, Bob's kids?
Or will Bob and elf friends keep evil under lid?

A '68 Buick Bob accepts as his
A car housing ghost of his first missus.

Satan gives him the car to chauffer the scum
Of the earth to hell from which they can't run.

On Satan's ranch Bob drives to hell's brink
The car his and Barbara's immortal link.

With assistance from elves and some Vodou from Sadie
And help from Jack's group of misfits in earth's Hades.

Defeating the evil on earth is Bob's quest
From toil he'll never be able to rest.

Will Azazel take over Satan's rule?
Come ride with Bob and see first-hand the duel.

I've been writing a number of posts explaining some things authors can do to not only market their books but how to get recognized to begin with. Part of what I said has covered pro-markets, those paying five cents a word or more. Twenty words and you have a dollar in your pocket. Not too shabby. There are also semi-pro rates between a penny a word up to the pro-rates. Still better than splitting royalties. And, there are presses paying $25.00 a story or more. Maybe that's not equal to the others, but you are assured of making money.

So what's the point of this post, you ask? I am in a number of groups where authors discuss which way to go. Some want to hold out for the higher rates instead of self-pubbing or going for anything below pro-rates. Makes sense to me. However, and I'm certain to make some enemies here, your manuscripts had better be polished or you don't deserve it. If an editor reads your story, scratches his head, and says, "What the fuck?,"  you're out of the game.

Another thing: a lot of authors complain they're not being treated right by publishers. In a lot of cases they're not. However, to complain your book is not selling when you do nothing at all to help promote it, expecting the publisher to do it all, is totally ridiculous. I no longer publish any books for other authors. Yes, I still help out with edits and marketing for some people, but it is strictly gratis. My wife and I publish for ourselves only. We do all the work, knowing what it entails.

Most authors have no idea what it costs to get a book published.  A Press has to pay for editing, cover art, formatting, copies for the authors, and marketing. It adds up. If a lazy author doesn't help with their own marketing,  the Press loses. Big time.

So, my friends, stop bitching and chomp down on some facts. You must write a great story; it must be edited well; and you damn well better help to promote it. If you don't do all these things, your manuscript is no better than last week's garbage.

Thanks for reading.

Romantic Shadows, by Terri DelCampo and Blaze McRob, is a collection published by Blazing Owl Press on our wedding anniversary. We eased up a bit on our usual horror fare and wrote some romance themed short stories and poems. Yes, there are certainly elements of horror contained within, but that is not all we present in this tome. Lovers are reunited in magical ways, the Dance Of Love soothes  yearning hearts, and much more.

We hope you enjoy the softer side of horror we share with you here.

Book description:

True love drowned by stormy seas?
Nun and lover brought to knees.
Wig transforms a broken girl.
Lady killed by shrapnel hurled.
Lambada's passion warms the soul.
Tears in heaven are wrath's toll.
Like seeks like when soulmates meet.
Poe's adoring shadow greets.
Will child be mother's resurrection?
Powwow lovers pose for perfection.
Artists' souls joined with paint eternal.
Chilesa's life raft is infernal.
Moon beams and lovers dream – forever
All in this tome – a dark romance endeavor.

All authors look for ways to spread the word about themselves and their books, but not even your most ardent fan wants to be assaulted by constant posts and in-your-face requests to buy your book. What are some ways to put your name out there without being a pain in the butt? My plan is to tell people more about other authors. On my websites, I give folks interesting tid-bits about Women In Horror, new books other authors have out or on the radar, and more. In addition to that, I give out some of my little tips, such as this one, and spread them around.

I write these posts on my websites, Tweet them, and share them to my Facebook personal and Author pages. A lot of times, I will post links to Twitter from my website and pin them to my Twitter page so they stay on top for at least a day. This way folks will see these posts first when they look at my Twitter page. This increases retweet opportunities. I've been keeping track of what happens when I do this and the results speak for themselves. My website explodes from people viewing the posts. For example: if I post a Woman In Horror article for one author and do the other things I mentioned, not only does that author get hundreds of views, but a lot of people will scroll down and read the posts about other Women In Horror they might have missed. The numbers for everyone go up on a constant basis.

How does this help me? Well, I enjoy telling the world about other authors. That's my main goal. However, if anyone wants to see what I have written they have merely to view my side-bars. I'm a bit laid back when it comes to thumping my own chest. I have posts out when a new book comes out and all, but I believe that if my books are well written, edited, and formatted ( with Terri DelCampo, my lovely wife, handling the latter two jobs ) then I have done my job. I do spread the word about my books, however, it's never a constant barrage of buy-my-book stuff.

Also, it doesn't hurt to post a book cover, Amazon link, and a short description on Twitter, featuring any of your books. Visuals look really cool on Twitter. This way people will see your book cover. You can do the same thing for book trailers, which I love, by the way. Spread them around, however, so you don't go overboard once again.

So, if you inter-face with others and spread their message to the masses, you will help out the entire family of authors. Even yourself.

Mists Of Papoose Pond, a novel by Blaze McRob, is out for your reading pleasure!

I had a lot of fun writing this novel. The toughest part of telling you what it is about is that I want no spoilers. This is a complex tale, not from the angle of reading it, but from the fact that there is no one dominant fear, no single monster, no single antagonist or protagonist. Everything comes together to create the whole. Nothing about any of my story people and creatures has ever been portrayed by any other author in the manner I wrote this tale. Nothing.

What I will say is that this is a horror/adventure/end days/and more novel. It is a roller-coaster ride of emotions. There are no slow, boring stretches contained within. Every chapter ends in a cliff-hanger and the next begins on a roll.

You will shake your head and wonder where I dug this up. My story people tell me what to write and I listen to them. This is what they told me to pen.

I hope you enjoy this Dark tale as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Amazon book description:

What does the future hold?
Where will it begin?
On a mountaintop?
At the bottom of the sea?
In a spaceship?

Or perhaps in a cabin by a pond enveloped by mysterious mists.
Mysterious mists that secrete forces of nature…
And good and evil.
Ed Hageman wants nothing more than to relax at Papoose Pond, but that's not to be. As the ultimate battle between good and evil shapes up around him, creatures are not what they seem. Many twists of fate, and much shock await not only Ed and his companions, but those of you who read his story.
Prophets of yore were not all-seeing after all. Gods and devils are not how holy books described them.
Blaze McRob spins the tale.
Blaze McRob untangles the legend.
Blaze McRob finds the meaning in the Mists of Papoose Pond.

Most of you who visit our Press postings know of all the recent stuff that Terri DelCampo is writing and the joint projects that she and I are collaborating on. And, of course, there is Owl's Eye View Magazine, which is how I discovered Terri. But how many of you know about the novels that Terri has written? If you visit her Amazon Author Page you will see she has written a number of them.

Into The Mist is one of these great novels. It is 608 pages of ooky and spooky. Go to Amazon and click the free sample button. I'm sure you'll be pulled into Terri's writing. I certainly am.
