Hi.   So, here’s what’s new with my writing.  Piker Press is going to publish my short story, The Devil’s Punch Bowl.  It should be on line by the end of July.  The Devil’s Punch Bowl is a paranormal biker story.  My short story, A Vacation in Hell, another zombie story, should be out in Dead Worlds: A Zombie Anthology Volume 7, sometime near the end of July.  The Dead Worlds series is published my The Living Dead Press.  My novel, Door Number Two, an action adventure novel, is still with the editors and they say it should be ready for me to review by the end of July or mid August.  In the mean time, I am working on a science fiction novel, writing more short stories and putting my face in the wind with my brothers in the American Cruisers M/C.
 
I ride a motorcycle because, its part of who I am; it’s what I do.  It is a lifestyle I have chosen.  When I am on a long open road with my fist in the throttle, or I am sweeping trough the curves, I am exactly where I am supposed to be at that point in time and I am as free as I am ever going to get.  There are two types of people who ride motorcycles.  There is the motorcycle enthusiast and then there is the biker.  The motorcycle enthusiast likes to ride his machine, but it isn’t a main focus in his life.  When it’s too hot, or it gets too cold, he’s the first to put the bike away.  When he has financial trouble, the bike is the first thing to go.  A biker on the other hand rides his motorcycle as much as he possibly can, sometimes every day.  His motorcycle would be the last thing to go.  Riding a motorcycle is part of his lifestyle.  Sometimes he has tattoos, but sometimes not, he enjoys other pleasures, but riding his motorcycle is his main thing.

Ninety-nine percent of bikers are hard working law-abiding citizens, but sometimes they get a bad wrap.  I didn’t consider myself a biker when I first started riding, but the deeper I got into the lifestyle; the more I embraced the term.  The club I ride with, The American Cruisers, is a family orientated bike club.  We do things for the community, such as help out the local vet’s home, help hand out presents to need children at Christmas time and support our local community.  We are a brotherhood, we are bikers in the true sense of the word and I am proud to be a part of the club and call myself a biker.

 

 
 
Well, my short story Biker Heaven had its week on the front page of Piker Press.  If you missed it there, I posted it on my Author Nation and my Author’s Den pages.  Just go to my links page and click on the link.  I sent the sequel, a short story entitled The Devil’s Punch Bowl, in to Piker Press, but I haven’t heard back from them yet.  I’m working on another zombie story called, A Vacation in Hell and I am still waiting to hear back from the editors at IE Novel on my book, Door Number Two.  On the motorcycle scene, I went with my club brothers in the American Cruisers MC to the Vets home in Barstow and we hung out with the Vets while they played bingo and then on Memorial Day we rode to the cemetery and attended a ceremony to honor our fallen heroes.  That’s about it for now.  Please feel free to leave a comment.

Hello.  I thought I would start my first blog by letting everyone know what's happening with my writing.  My werewolf story, Border War just got published in an anthology with The Living Dead Press.  My biker zombie story, Biker Heaven is coming out as the cover story on May 17th at Piker Press.  I'm working on a sequel to that one right now and my novel, Door Number Two is with the editors of IE Novel.  That's about all I'm up to for now except working and riding my MC.  Take care.

Dave.
