I am still alive. I haven’t fallen into madness or given up on writing. I did pull ‘The Bomb and the Cage’ only one week after it was released. To answer anyone who might care, it was simply because I finished reading the book ‘On Writing’ by Stephen King and it opened my eyes to the unsavory story that i had released.

If you bought it, please do not fear its not a bad product by no means, its just not the product that i had spent the last several years dreaming about.

I have also pulled out of self publishing (for now) at least with future works.

when the bomb is released it will be the first part of ‘The End of Tomorrow’. The second part is called ‘Through the smoke’ and the final part is calle
Ld ‘World on Fire’. There is the only taste you’re going to get. Unless you listen to ‘I Don’t want to set the world on fire’ by the ink spots…

The book is around 600+ pages and I’m just starting on the final part. A very big difference from the bombs 260 pages 🙂

So my next novel is going to be named ‘Through the Smoke’ and it is in fact the second book in “The End of Tomorrow’ Series. If you haven’t taken a look at the first book it’s called ‘The Bomb and the Cage’ and you can find it here. http://www.amazon.com/The-Bomb-Cage-Tomorrow-ebook/dp/B0083CTFDK/

Right now I’m about halfway though the first step, writing it. I plan to be done with it in about three or so weeks. Then it’s off to proofreading, editing, and cover design. I have a great idea for a cover and if I go through with it… well lets just say me and a cousin will be on it.

In a few minutes I will also be posting a sample from the first chapter of ‘Through the Smoke’. Also don’t worry about a spoiler alert if you haven’t read ‘The Bomb and the Cage’ yet.

So lets go back to February. I told myself then that I wanted to set a very large goal for myself this year. My goal was to have 7 books published on kindle and paperback by my 28th birthday. You see for some unknown reason the age 28 has always meant a lot to me. I can’t explain it, but what I can explain is that it is the year I’m going to make it big. You heard it here first! 2013 is going to be my year, the year of Eugene W. Cusie!

 

Well this is it… After three months it is going through its final proofread as it nears the end. My wonderful editor Doree has done an amazing job and i can’t wait to finally release this piece of me to the world.

The official release date is May 18th on Kindle and Amazon. Get ready for my take on zombies.

Why is it my printer costs $30 brand new and the ink for it costs $35? Well then answer is simple the ink in the new printer is a “Sample”, its not filled up… I wish I could afford a fancy printer like the one I have at work. I can’t imagine what that one costs. Probally somewhere in the $200 range… One day, one day I tell you!

Going back to my day. I got home and printed up my new novel (well except for the last 10-20 thousand words that I haven’t wrote yet lol) I am trying something new with my novels. When I finish them and do my own proofreading and editing I’m doing it on paper. It seems to work better for me than if I do it on the computer hmmm. When I’m done with my novel it might be a short story with all the red ink I’m using. I’ll take a picture of my first page and post it here so you can laugh with me!

I got so much done yesterday that I really needed to let my mind rest for just a moment. Today only, maybe not even the whole day, just until my wife goes to sleep.

 

I worked 7 12 hour days at work in a row and this is a much needed rest. I love my day job and it gives me some time to write which is very awesome. When I worked for the Florida Department of Corrections we didn’t have any computers let alone paper to write on so it was hopeless for me to even try back then. However while working there in 2004 I came up with the idea for “The End of Tomorrow”. I played with the idea for years and just recently decided to put it down on paper. I just hate that “The Walking Dead” are doing the whole prison thing. There is also a show coming out called “Apartment 23” yay go me….

Well my wife is waiting for me to get done so we can go recycle some cans… pinching pennies everywhere.

Also please Pray for a fellow Brother who was taken far too soon from this Earth, Sergeant Ruben Thomas! http://www.odmp.org/officer/21208-sergeant-ruben-thomas

Well I’ve been writing off and on since my birthday (2/11) “The End of Tomorrow” and I would just like to say that its been going very well and its looking very much like a series instead of a single novel.

Now some other information about it… It is not a zombie book, but a book with zombies in it. It’s an end of times book about surviving a changed world. Zombies is just the starting point that leads to the end of everyday life as we know it now.

Well this morning I got my first sales for the month. If I can sell 100 copies this month i’ll definitely be doing some major free days.
