Zombie Turkeys Defeated! Read All About it!

If you’ve been a Zombie Turkeys subscriber, you would know I got Zombie Turkeys Defeated after the previous email they sent. This is my report and an announcement of a free offer for the Kindle Edition of Zombie Turkeys.

Sadly, that offer ended, but soon I’ll offer it for free again on Kindle! Watch this blog, or better yet, subscribe by clicking here.  My subscribers get the first notice to all deals. Plus, there’s a brand new offer at the bottom of this post. But take advantage of it today, because it’s only valid for a short time!

Happy Hour
Zombie Turkeys Newsletter Volume 1, Number 14
 
Hello faithful readers!
 

I’ve wrested control back from the zombie turkeys. They had me locked in my room while they had their way with my computer.

Free Zombie Book Drawing
Cover of Kindle edition of “Zombie Turkeys”. Click to download.
The emergency announcement is: my book Zombie Turkeys will be FREE on Kindle for the next week!
Go here to take advantage of it!  Tell all your friends and enemies!
That is all!
 
Andy

Zombie Turkeys Defeated But Don’t Go Yet! Here’s another great offer!

Ah! You just skipped everything and scrolled down here to find out what the free offer is.  That’s great! Have a free turkey video:

But the free video isn’t the offer; the offer is next.

You Can Be A Member of My Undead Mother-in-law Launch Team!

My Undead Mother-in-law Cover
Preview Cover of “My Undead Mother-in-law”, on sale on Amazon in July 2017.

“So what?” you say. “Why would I want to? And what’s the catch?”

Well may you ask. First, what’s in it for you:

One, a free My Undead Mother-in-law T-shirt.

Two, a free Zombie Turkeys pen.

Three, a free signed copy of My Undead Mother-in-law.

My Undead Mother-in-law Book Launch
The preliminary back cover of My Undead Mother-in-law

What’s The “Catch”?

First of all, you’re going to have to email me (Click here) or sign up for my newsletter. (Click here.) All my subscribers’ emails are kept confidential on my secured site.

Secondly, you’ve got to tell all your friends about My Undead Mother-in-law when it goes on sale in July. That would be all your Facebook contacts (that you think would want to read a humorous zombie parody), all your Twitter contacts, all your email contacts.

Thirdly, when Zombie Turkeys goes on sale in August, tell the same group that’s free for the taking.

Fourthly, if possible show up in person for the book launch at the Peoria Barnes and Noble store at 12 PM.

If you can’t make that, then make my virtual launch on Facebook.

But act now! The book launch team must be organized this week!

Keep watching for more news!

Oh, and here’s a video of me reading from My Undead Mother-in-law!

Shadow Maker: Morrighan House Witches Book One by [Lane, Amir]

Description

Physics major Dieter Lindemann is perfectly content living in a world where the Shadows he sees and hears are nothing but figments of his imagination. But when one attacks him, he’s forced to confront the fact that the Shadows are not only real, but dangerous. Though Necromancer Alistair Cudmore offers to help him, Dieter quickly realizes that what he and Alistair want are two very different things, and it’s difference that could cost him his life. Controlling and possessive, Alistair pushes him further and further into blood magic, dragging him down into a world he never wanted any part in. As the spirits and Alistair grow more and more violent, Dieter must break away from his mentor and learn to control the Shadows on his own before they destroy him. Only, Alistair isn’t about to let him go without a fight.
