My Loaded Gun, My Lonely Heart fresh from Audible

I’ve been remiss keeping updates lately.

The latest however, is good news, and it’s that Audible.com has released the audio version of My Loaded Gun, My Lonely Heart. The smooth talker Christian Rummel does an excellent job of bringing Vitus to life, everyone should be so lucky to have their work narrated thusly.

Anyone interested in getting ahold of a few copies of this for review purposes should get in touch with me at Mr.MartinRose@gmail.com. I’ve a limited number but anyone with a liking for audiobooks should feel welcome to drop me a line.

Giveaway on Goodreads – My Loaded Gun, My Lonely Heart

It’s official the Goodreads Giveaway for My Loaded Gun, My Lonely Heart is underway, now through October 11th!

You can enter here.

Publisher’s Weekly reviewed it a few weeks ago and had this to say about it:

” Vitus’s tragic past and newfound humanity make him a compelling figure, and his wry narration, given to moments of self-loathing and snark, at times reads like a fever dream shot through with startling moments of sanity. This emotionally charged genre-buster serves up more than a few good punches and won’t disappoint fans of dark fantasy laced with pitch-black humor. “

Cover Reveal: My Loaded Gun, My Lonely Heart

Here it is, folks — the cover for My Loaded Gun, My Lonely Heart. Covers bring that magical element to the process as it becomes apparent that yes, this is indeed really happening. I’m pleased with the result, especially considering the subject matter of the story itself. My wonderful editor and the folks at Talos are looking at  November release this year for this one. Brace yourselves — promotions are coming!
myloadedgunHere’s the summary from the Amazon page:

“If you don’t know by now, we don’t deal in happy endings here . . .”

Vitus Adamson has a second chance at life now that he’s no longer a zombie, but after killing his brother Jamie, Vitus lands in prison on murder charges. Jamie’s death exposes secret government projects so deep in the black they cannot be seen—without Vitus, that is.

Sprung from jail, the government hires Vitus to clean up Jamie’s mess, but tracking down his brother’s homemade monsters gone rogue is easier said than done. A convicted killer safely behind bars may not be so safe after all when it appears he is still committing murder through his victim’s dreams. High on Atroxipine (the drug that once kept him functioning among the living) and lapsing into addiction, Vitus’s grip on reality takes a nasty turn when his own dreams start slipping sideways.

His problems multiply as he deals with his failed friendship with wheelchair-bound officer Geoff Lafferty, his wrecked romance with the town mortician Niko, government agents working for his father, sinister figures lurking in the shadows, and least of all, the complications of learning how to be human again.

Secret agents, conspiracy theories, broken hearts and lonely souls, the siren song of prescription drugs . . . In My Loaded Gun, My Lonely Heart, readers are invited to discover life after undeath, where there are no happy endings.
