Katrina Hates the Dead: About to earn $2.99 of my hard earned silver




I picked up a preview teaser copy of Katrina Hates the Dead through an Instafreebie link. This was my first time using Instafreebie and probably my last. Let's handle the IFreeb issue first before we talk comics.

Instafreebie is a website/App that allows authors and artists to set up giveaways and route them through an authorized system that helps diminish piracy by tracking valid app download connections. Pretty cool idea. The problem is spam email. By downloading anything you are basically giving carte blanche access for someone to email you with marketing junk. These are usually authors you showed interest in, but many of these authors have no idea about email and mailing list etiquette. I suggest avoiding this system. If you are routed there, just stop and track down the author directly.

Now! On to Katrina!

I do not have a ton to say yet. The Katrina comic I gained access to was a single 22 page issue of awesome. The apocalypse makes landfall and humanity is screwed. After the demons and undead get bored with pillaging and destroying.. They head into the suburbs and settle down.

Katrina works a shit job. She kicks the ass of anything undead that gets in her way and kills it a second time. The humor in this is similar to what I like about Rick and Morty: a bit irreverent, a bit crass, pretty funny.

Amazon apparently sells a full Trade Paperback at 140 pages for under three dollars (at the time of writing this) which if the rest is as good as this single issue was, is a steal. After finishing the entire TPB I may choose to perform a full review.

Buying media via links on this site costs you nothing extra. It does however help me pay for cheap comics and books.
Consider buying a copy of this for yourself or your local library


Product Description:
What would you do during the Apocalypse? How would you survive?

Those are the questions that have plagued Katrina for years. All the good boys and girls were raptured up to Heaven, leaving the rest of humanity to ask a single, solitary question: “Why not me?”

Hellspawn rose from Hell and rampaged across the world, eviscerating all they came across. It was bedlam, Hell on Earth. There was nothing anybody could do to stop it.

Then the Hellspawn got bored and settled for a quiet life in the suburbs. They squatted in the homes of the people they once mercilessly murdered.

And that’s where Katrina Hates the Dead starts. Humanity survived the rampaging demons and now has to work and live alongside them. They steal all the good jobs, and leave humanity cowering is squalor.

Katrina is a non-stop thrill ride from beginning to end. She fights minotaurs, Cerebus dogs, zombies, demons, and more, as she fights across the plains of oblivion.

But the book also explored the deep pain and angst of a society that was forsaken by god, decimated by Satan, and left to live in hunger.

And yet humanity is strong. They persist. But everything has a breaking point, and after watching friend after friend die at the unforgiving and unjust hands of fate, Katrina’s had enough and sets out to face off with the Devil to earn back her old life.

AbyssRium (IDLE Idea Factory) + Strategy

Tap games are a dime a dozen in the mobile world. Most (as is AbyssRium) are free with ad-supported revenue and/or provide efficiency cheats in a store.

AbyssRium sets itself apart from other tap games by leveraging a unique concept. In a Synthetic ocean, you are the ever loving caretaker of a talking 'Coralite', which to the best of our perceptions is an underwater volcanic vent. The point of the game is to build strength and vitality for your volcano and its surrounding wild life; evolving animals and fortifying new types of coral. As each element of your world is enhanced, you elicit more vitality from the creatures for use in evolution.
It is easiest to think of your mobile device as the side of a giant fish tank, and you are going to be tapping on the glass. While you were told in life this was bad for an aquarium, in AbyssRium, your Coralite considers this loving attention. It smiles at you, gives on screen hints, and makes a slightly disturbing orgasm face every time y…

Interview: Q&A with Khaled Talib, 'Gun Kiss' author

I recently had the opportunity to interview Crime/Thriller author Khaled Talib. He allowed me a few minutes of his time to pick his brain about both his upcoming Thriller Gun Kiss as well as to ask him about the writing and publishing process in general.

I was pleased to get some insight into his upcoming novel and dig deeper into what makes Khaled tick. We also learned about some launch week giveaways and events that will be happening, so scroll to the end for details on how to participate and enter contest

The launch window leading up to a book release is crunch time for many last minute details. I am grateful for the late night responses it likely took in order to answer my questions!


Slated for release on 12/01/2017

Synopsis of Gun Kiss:

Interview: Q&A with Joseph M. Reynolds, author of Make Dust Our Paper

During the Fall, I received a copy of a book that has had surprising staying power in my mind. Initially, I had mixed feelings, some ambiguity regarding the work. When it clicked with me, it really fell right into place.

Make Dust Our Paper has reserved a permanent place in my collection.

Like the nosy reader I am, after reading I emailed the author with a few followup questions about the plot. Ultimately, he answered my questions then he agreed to be interviewed about his novel and other topics. The holiday season is terribly busy for people, so I really appreciate that he was able and willing to take the time.

With that, much thanks to Joseph M. Reynolds!


Synopsis of Make Dust Our Paper:
"Carrigan approaches the millennium New Year craving climax and culmination. What he finds instead is constant anti-climax, and lack of definitional consequence for his failures and failings and genius. A conceptual heir to Fitzgerald's This Side of Paradise, this novel explores everything …
