Four Days

That's how long it took for my book to sell out at the store.

FOUR DAYS.
gracie_musica: text (not writing takes time)
Driving through the country late at night holds a certain amount of risk. There are serial killer hitchhikers with hooks for hands, rabid werewolves that thirst for blood, half-crazy voodoo queens, and, on the very rare occasion, ghosts who have a fondness for getting run over. GHOST STORY tells the tale of a woman who is forced to put up with a ghostly annoyance who just won't take no for an answer and the sleep deprivation that comes as she reluctantly helps him find out how he died and how he can finally cross over.

GHOST STORY was written by... well, by me! Swing by Paper Heroes and grab your copy located to the left of the checkout counter. Paper Heroes is on Ryan Street between Pizza Hut and Cancun. It's directly across the street from Sonic. They are open 10-6 Monday - Friday, 10-5 Saturday

Also, sales have dropped as of late and there are still quite a few copies of BONNIE VS THE ZOMBIES and MAGGIE still available. The good news is that if you haven't picked up a copy of these two books, you haven't missed your chance. The bad news is that if we can't continue to move books, we can't continue to produce them. We need your help to spread the word about this project. Support local talent and buy a copy, then tell your friends.

If you're unfamiliar with the Ten Dime Novel, they're small books, ranging from 16-60 pages. Each contains a piece of short fiction that can be read in a single sitting. As the name implies, they cost $1.00.


PREVIOUS TEN DIME NOVELS

PYRO
is the story of a young guy who likes to burn things and watch the chaos that ensues. But the chaos caused by his work is quickly consuming his life.

STEAL is the story of Baris Fyfe, Sean Mixon and Filip Spano who just stole something priceless and are now driving across the state to deliver it. The object is resting in a shoe box and a note that Baris keeps in his pocket is all that can explain why he must take this road trip.

How hard would you fight for someone you love? What would you do if there was only one person standing in the way of your perfect life? Could you plan the perfect murder? In FOR YOU, ANYTHING, Luke intends to give Kristen a perfect Christmas present, no matter the cost.

BONNIE VS. THE ZOMBIES chronicles the events that transpired immediately after a devastating hurricane crippled Southwest Louisiana and three people's desperate attempt to escape the plague of the walking dead. Bonnie vs. The Zombies is also a prequel to the epic trilogy PLAN-Z. We all remember what the media told us about the aftermath and destruction of Hurricane Rita, now you can find out for yourself what really happened to those who did not evacuate before the storm. Bonnie vs. The Zombies was inspired by actual events. The locations and story are real. Only the names have been changed.

John Bayard has just found the love of his life, Maggie, and he wants to spend the rest of his life with her. She's everything he's ever wanted. But she just escaped from military custody and they will stop at nothing to get her back. MAGGIE is the V-Day issue but don't be fooled. This is not a romance story. In fact, technically, it's not even a love story. It's a story of manipulation and control. It's a story of addiction and withdrawal. It's a story of infection and illness. It's a story of parasitic invasion.

It takes about 10 sales just to break even with the printing costs, so every little bit helps. Swing by Paper Heroes and check them out. Even if you don't want a copy (or if you've already read the story), spread the word to anyone who might be interested.

Help us bring the short story back.

Fic Update

Okay. So I know some of you are probably going, "Gracie, it's [livejournal.com profile] redismycolour tiem, wherefore is my fic?!"

Well, the reason why I haven't been writing so much is because I was actually working on a piece of original fiction. You see, a friend of mine has started this thing called a Ten Dime Novel through the local comic shop. One short story gets published every month, for $1 -- ten dimes. Both Troll (the guy who started this idea) and [livejournal.com profile] midassa_in_gold have had brilliant stories put out.

... And guess who's getting one in March?


For those of you who don't live in and around Lake Charles, once the story sells out, it will be available as an e-book here on lulu.com for the same price -- $1. So you won't be missing out on anything!

Closer to March, I'll be talking more about it, but if you've got a couple of bucks to spare, I suggest you go pick up the previous three: Pyro, Steal, and For You, Anything. They are all brilliant stories.
