  Hey Everyone, Many of you have been asking about the release date for Dark Bride, book two of the 3 Gates of the Dead series. Here is what is going on... As you know, Open Road Media (Michael Chabon, Walker Percy, Dorothy Sayers) bought the series from my previous publisher, Premier Digital. Premier set the release date at November 1st. However, when Legendary Editor (Betsy Mitchell) got a hold of it, she decided that we needed a full on marketing push. As any publisher will tell … [Read more...]

Left Behind is Stupid…(And That’s Why it’s Fun)

Left_Behind_-_Teaser_Poster

Nicolas Cage is at it again! The guy who rescued us from chemical terrorism at Alcatraz and found national treasure in New York's Trinity Church is now working to ensure we're not left behind. If you're anything like me - which I don't necessarily recommend - you've probably seen the first full trailer of the new upcoming Left Behind film, based on the best selling series of novels by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. When I was in college, I devoured the book series because, well, it was … [Read more...]

Sci-Fi Gospel: Pope Francis, Aliens and Jesus.

perelandraTheGreenLady

The media world exploded yesterday when Pope Francis announced the Catholic Church would baptize aliens, if any ever asked.  Reaction ranged from the amused detachment of the Daily Mail to subtle mockery from the Internet news site, The Daily Beast. It is important to note that Pope Francis used aliens as a funny illustration. He wanted to demonstrate the complete openness of the church to all seekers. The media took the sound bite out of context and ran with it.  While the media doing this … [Read more...]

There is a major international buzz developing over this event. I'm going as official Press for the event, as well as hanging out with the ladies at Teen Author Boot Camp at their booth. Word is, I might have book marks with the cover of Revolution of the Wolf and Ghost Bear there. Maybe. Possibly. We here … [Read more...]

DCR Gold Logo

  (I  (Jo Schaffer) met Daniel Swenson(aka Revan)at the LTUE writing conference in Provo, Utah. He sat at a table with a bunch of microphones interviewing authors and attendees at the event. Curious, I stopped to chat with him. Turns out he runs the fabulously geeky, Dungeon Crawler Radio. I later had the opportunity to be interviewed on the show along with Jonathan Ryan. We talked a little bit about Teen Author Boot Camp, comic books and movies. (The Man of Steel debate got a bit … [Read more...]

I Sold My Soul to Amazon; Plus, Major 3 Gates News.

298136_1316184631234_320_240

Here is a straightforward fact; Amazon is helping make my writing career through the huge success of 3 Gates of the Dead. I know there are a lot of people who beat the "anti-Amazon" drum with intense fervor. In truth, I used to be one of them until I realized the absolute hypocrisy of doing so. I'm not saying Amazon doesn't have some complicating things that go along with their business model. Others have written about it in a much more detailed and nuanced critique (Google it sometime). I … [Read more...]

We sure do)      Tom Durham is a writer, filmmaker, Emmy nominated producer, family guy, idealist, and advocate for underdog … [Read more...]
