Perfection Challenged - Welcome Jade Kerrion

Never Say Die Launch!

Yes, it's out. Never Say Die is a zombie time loop story where Cassandra, rather than dying, is dropped back in her own pass with the chance to stop the viral outbreak that turns anyone over 25 into a zombie. This book was so much fun to write, and to read. I'm hoping to be able to offer an audiobook for the first time! As part of the editing process, I read the final galley pages of Never Say Die into Audacity, so the files are there, if I can edit it all together. (Don't expect to see it soon.)

Escape from Ancient Egypt

Seeking his revenge on Neiko for exposing him, Francesco banishes Neiko into ancient Egypt just like he did her friends eleven years ago. During her stay there, she unravels the mystery of what happened to her four friends. Now she’s faced with a bigger problem—how to get home. After a series of unfortunate events, Neiko is now entangled with Pharaoh Ramesses II. Francesco also comes to make sure their fates are sealed. Can Neiko and her friends beat impossible odds and return to Hawote and back to the present?

What Writing Means to Me

My name is Jeff Horton, and I am a novelist. I say I am a novelist and not an author because an author can be someone that writes about anything including novels, historical biographies, travel guides, etc., while a novelist is an artist, a painter if you will. Imagination is the paint and the keyboard the paintbrush.

Love Triangles in the Double Helix

Love triangles abound, at least in fiction. We love to take sides and to root for one team or another. The Double Helix is a science fiction/urban fantasy series; it isn’t specifically a romance, but love is universal and forms the core of this story. Let’s take a look at the key players in this love triangle.

First Field Trip of the Year

I leave in an hour or so on my first week-long trip to Fort McMurray. They are always a mix for me. On the one hand, I hate leaving my family. On the other, I get so much writing done! When I come back to my room at night there is no supper to make, no flash games (my netbook is horrible to try to play them on), no interruptions. Also, there's the long driving time, which is perfect for scribbling in a notebook. If I'm the one driving, I plot. My job isn't exactly an ideal fit for day job to writing, but it is damn close.

Zombie Time Loop

I really need some help. This one is going to edits now and I still don't have a title I like. If you go to the tab, you'll see a full list of possible titles, but really, I'm open to any suggestions. There seems to be a lot of support for Zombie Time Loop. Part of me thinks that should be a subtitle. Like:
Zombies, Death...Whatever - A Zombie Time Loop

Or, you know, something else. Never Say Die - Zombie Time Loop. No, I really can't use Never Say Die. I mean, it fits, Cassie never gives up which is why she keeps jumping back in time, but that's just NOT a good title.

Edmonton Story Slam

Tonight, I shed any reservations I may have about writing, go up on stage, and read for up to 5 minutes. Story Slam is held once a month in a bar very near my house. I went last month and scored moderately well (middle of the pack). I blame my style and voice. I didn't fit the tone of the other performers. I can't help that. I don't write contemporary, or noir, or really trippy comedy. I AM taking the introduction to Zombie Time Loop, or Never Say Die, or whatever we call it this week. (Please help me name this story.
