When the Dead Wake Audiobook Complete

Recently I just finished my second audiobook, When the Dead Wake. It is now awaiting a last pass by one of the authors for any final edits he may have before it is sent to ACX for publishing.

The book is written by Christopher Gray and Matthew Burris. Here is what is written on Amazon about the book – “What would you do if you discovered that someone was trying to unleash a zombie apocalypse? Would you risk everything you had and even your life itself to save everyone? Could you even do it?

Richard Griffon and Elijah Parrish are two down-on-their-luck private detectives who barely scrape by on meager earnings they get from chasing cheating spouses. Desperate for cash, they take on what they think is a routine job to track down Angela, the daughter of a wealthy businessman, and her bodyguard Talia. Angela is a spoiled and bored socialite who drifts aimlessly from one party to another, in and out of rehab. What they don’t know is that she has accidentally stumbled onto a conspiracy of unimaginable proportions. Her world will be turned upside down when she discovers her father has entered into a dangerous conspiracy to release a virus that raises its victims for a near-death state and turns them into raging ghouls who will kill anyone within their reach.

As the group struggles to understand their situation, they find that there are parties who are willing to do everything inside and outside of the law to keep this information secret. The group finds themselves drawn into a situation where they can no longer trust anyone but each other. Fearing for their lives and having nowhere to turn to, the group must decide what to do next. Do they run away and hope for the best or risk everything to expose the conspiracy? Can they even stop the outbreak of a zombie pandemic or is it now too late?”

This is an awesome read and I hope that people will find it an awesome listen. I am thoroughly pleased to have worked on this project. The story was great and the characters believable.

Peace be with you!

Independent Merchants – 2014-2015 – Wk. 7 – Quarter 1 Roll-Off

The Wrecking Crew

  • (155) Mr. Pink-{156}-{170}-{162}=488 {162} +7
  • (148) Lenny-{200}-{143}-{162}=505 {168} +20
  • (160) Ruben-{134}-{170}-{165}=469 {156} -4
  • (180) Tod-{154}-{168}-{193}=515 {171} -9
  • (215) James-{168}-{197}-{195}=560 {186} -29

Bold indicates individual point won. Italics indicate poker hand won.

As a team we took 10 out of 35 points and as a team we were -11 for the night.

It was a rough night for a few of us but as a team we were able to hang on to win the 3rd game and take 1st place for the 1st quarter this year. This qualifies us to play for the title league championship. Boo-ya! This will be Ruben and Linus’ first time taking 1st in a quarter ever. It will be my first time in 7-10 years (really), and Tod and Mr. Pinks 2nd and 3rd in the last 5 years.

Also things of note: Ruben is now tied in 1st place for most individual points won and Linus rolled his first 200 game of the year and first 500 series ever (I believe). Tod is rolling at a 180+ average this year and Mr. Pink took 2 individual points from the leagues highest average last night. Congratulations guys! I am super excited for you and really proud of your achievements!

Peace be with you!

The Wrecking Crew

  • (169) Brian-{173}-{169}-{162}= 504 {168} -1
  • (147) Lenny-{157}-{138}-{172}=467 {155} +8
  • (160) Ruben-{162}-{169}-{152}=483 {161} +1

As a team we took 31 out of 35 points and as a team we were -1 for the night.

After tonight we are in first place with a 26 point lead over the second place team going into the position round. If we can take 1st place this quarter, it will be the first time in MANY years that I have done so. Ruben and Lenny haven’t been on the team long enough to have remembered when that occurred last time with me. Tommy and Tod however did win 2 quarters five years ago when I took a hiatus from bowling after I got married. Boo-ya!

Peace be with you!

Lenny bowled his first ever 500+ series which is largely the reason we did as well as we did.

Mr. Pink will be off enjoying a vacation/anniversary somewhere much warmer and nicer than here this week and next. Brian thankfully was able to bowl for him.

Peace be with you!

aNOTHER eXCITING yEAR

Seeing my reflection upon the mirrored glass

Makes me think time moves way too fast

So live for the moment and enjoy every day

Before your remaining sands have all slipped away

I look back over this year and realize that I have accomplished so much and done so many wonderful things and experienced some big life events:

  • Quit my nine-to-fiver (technically I did that in December of last year)
  • I started my own business
  • I learned how to network
  • Joined a modeling/acting agency
  • Celebrated my 5th wedding anniversary
  • Had back surgery
  • Got to spend countless hours with my friends goofing off and enjoying their company
  • I completed my first audio book, started on my second and signed two more contracts to narrate trilogies – I have posted a link to my first book – Deep Dark Woods – on my blog and will do likewise with all my other projects.

I feel truly blessed and fortunate to have been able to have an incredible year that I have and I would be remiss if I didn’t thank the one person whom deserves so much credit. Someone that I don’t acknowledge near enough…my wonderfully awesome wife Jessica. She has supported me in every endeavor I have ever wanted to do and supported those choices with sage advise and unwavering enthusiasm. I owe all thanks and gratitude to the rock in my life, Jessica.

You are truly the best a person can hope to be – loving, supportive, fiery and thoughtful. I love you more today that than yesterday and will love you more tomorrow than today.

Here is to another 45 years with the love of my life!

Finally I would like to thank everyone that has wished me Happy Birthday. Getting old never felt so good.

Peace be with you all!
