Not too long ago, I was guy who had written a book and was lucky enough to find someone to publish it. But I knew NOTHING about the process: editing, galleys, getting blurbs. I didn't even know where I was supposed to sign the books, until some of you chimed in. But look at me now. I am starting to feel like a pro. I have lots of great news:


First off, Never Slow Dance With A Zombie has just been picked up by Pan Macmillan Australia. The book is now available for fans in Australia. Throw a few shrimp on the barbie--Australia! Wow! I don't think I have any fans is Australia--yet. But now that NSDWAZ is available there, who knows. Anyway, it's my first international sale, and I am thrilled.


I have been booked to be on a panel at the West Hollywood Book Fair (Click here: West Hollywood Book Fair ) on Sunday October 4th from 1:45-2:45. I don't know who else is going to be on the panel, but I'm sure they will be way more important than me. The panel is being sponsored by Dark Delicacies, a wonderful book store in Burbank, California:Click here: Dark Delicacies . If you know of anyone who might be attending, please ask them to stop by and say hi. I will let you know more about the event as we get closer.


If you are attending Comic-Con and you'd like to find the Zombiettes they will be attending the Zombie Walk Thursday night. Click here: Zombie Walk: San Diego If you see them and say "Margot sent me," you qualify to win a free ARC of Never Slow Dance With A Zombie.

I will be at Comic Con on Saturday the 25th. I will be at the Black Panel Saturday morning. I won't be on the panel, but you can find me there. Or if you spot me on the floor please say hi.

The book comes out on August 18th, and remember I will be reading and signing at Book Soup on Sunset Boulevard Sunday August 22nd at 7PM..... Look at that. I'm like a real professional. Hawking my book like a carnival barker. Guys, I can't tell you how much fun I am having. Thanks again for coming along on this ride with me. Can't wait for the book to come out.

Sleep tight...


  1. Oh yay, congrats on all the new things. That's great about Australia. There are a few book bloggers that are from there by the way. :)


  2. That's awesome news. Congrats!

    It's awesome that the pub date is coming up so quickly. That has got to be exciting.

    Oh yes, have fun at Comic-Con. Those are so much fun.
