MIB Files: Meltdown Liquidator – Now on Pre-order

1986. A nuclear reactor is in meltdown behind the Iron Curtain, letting off intense radiation. A solider goes into the contaminated zone to help with the clean up but gets something more demonic than a dose of radiation.

The MIB FILES are stories of the paranormal, strange things, and UFO sightings with one thing in common: interactions with the Men In Black (MIB). These stories are stand-alone and can be read in any order.

Disclaimer: This is an original work, not based in any way on the popular movie series “Men in Black”. This story takes its inspiration from the real life accounts of the Men in Black (MIB) that were reported decades before the films were made. It makes no reference to the films, their plots, settings, or characters, or any of their ancillary properties, whatsoever.

Now on pre-order for a July 15, 2017 release (get it for $0.99, regular $2.99):

Halloween Sam: The Candle Man

Halloween in June? Sure, why not! Just published “Halloween Sam: The Candle Man” – a short story/animation script.

Previously only available in my short story collection “Short Stories Volume 1,” this story has been a favourite of mine for a while now.

I’d love to team up with some animators and make this into a short movie one day! Maybe even expand it to a feature. I think the vivid imagery and musical elements (the character of Halloween Sam sings throughout the story), would make a stand-out film.

Like a free copy? Here’s a little contest! The first 3 people who can tell me who said “Everyday is Halloween” get a free copy! Leave a comment to win.

Happy reading!

EARTH PLAN – my book

My novel EARTH PLAN has been out for a few months now, but I thought it was time to update the cover. That’s it pictured above, for the ebook. I just wanted to show it off!

Grey aliens invade the primordial Earth to genetically alter humans and enslave them. Ships from the Watchers land too, collecting DNA to preserve it from tampering. An energy shield appears around Earth from an unknown force, to quarantine the Grey infection. Eons later, the Earth is a hell. A secret society fights back with the aid of the Watchers, in a universe-spanning battle for life itself.

The original cover was by Tania Marie, and it’s still in place for the paperback for now. Read about that one here: https://davidsloma.com/earth-plan-on-pre-order/

What it was like to be a writer before the Internet: Markets

Before the Internet rose to mass use through the 1990’s, just finding a list of places to -maybe- send hard copies of your writing to involved a trip to the library (or the purchase of an expensive directory that listed writing markets), and a lot of time to go through a thick book (or several) and try to find out which publishers to contact. Then, hope they were still in business by the time your material reached them in the mail!

Today, we writers have got it comparatively easy as far as getting our work to readers is concerned. We can self-publish electronically, or submit our writing to publishers for consideration without even having to print out the manuscripts, pay for postage, envelopes, and return postage (and ink for the printer), and then wait a long time for an answer that may not come. Today, things are much faster and easier, and cheaper!

Here’s a video where I talk about it some more and show one of the writing market directories in book form that I used to use:

The Clown Riots – new story published

cr-ebook-cover-titled-small

My new short story is out, just in time for Halloween! The Clown Riots.

It was just before Halloween and weird, scary clowns had been spotted around the small college town of Ferndale.

Actually, clowns had been spotted around many college and university campuses lately.

And they were deadly.
