Reflections of an indie writer part 2

It occurred to me that my first Reflections of an indie writer article mostly just talked about my developing philosophy regarding being an indie writer and didn’t really include any of the different strategies I employed. What worked? What didn’t? etc. etc. so, I…

Reflections from an indie writer

Another year, poof…gone. Funny how time works. Relativity and all that. And it has become (or has always been) customary to reflect on the past years achievements, failures, and experiences and then to cast our gaze into the new year that waits before us….

Happy Halloween!

Here in Houston, Texas, the weather has finally let in a little sunshine and “cooler” temps. Yes, “cooler,” as in less humid, which in Houston creates our version of fall. Indeed, it does feel like fall outside, my favorite time of year. A relief…

Reflections of an indie writer on 2017

It is customary at the close of a year to look back and reflect on ones accomplishments and ones failures. As writers, we think on the things that made us rise to an occasion and what we utterly fell flat on. What worked and…

Beautiful Ugly and Other Weirdness

While everyone is getting drunk on turkey today, I thought I’d bring to the table an announcement of which I am very very very excited to make. My latest collection of short stories titled Beautiful Ugly and Other Weirdness is now available for pre-order…

Return of the Living Dead (1985)

Halloween is almost here. And what better hangout than the graveyard. As a Romero purist, I’ve found zombie flicks outside Romeroism rules to be…meh. However, there are a select few that defy zombie prejudice. Let’s chat a bit about Dan O’Bannon’s Return of the Living…

BOOKS OF THE DEAD

I think we can all agree that the world of zombie fiction is saturated. Not that we mind, right? What’s more fun then feasting on some gory undead fiction? Still, like a line from Ecclesiastes, it certainly feels like there is nothing new that can…

Facebook Live Event!

Hey folks, in celebration of the release of PLANET OF THE DEAD i’ll be hosting a LIVE event over on Facebook. Join me tomorrow in a talk on ZomPoc (our favorite flesh munching movies and books), a reading from PLANET OF THE DEAD, and…

PLANET OF THE DEAD: Sneak Peek

PLANET OF THE DEAD By: Thomas S. Flowers Walter Washington D.C., West Wing. Walter Friendly already knew what was waiting for him on the other side of the press room door. Even before he had heard the buzz of nervous excitement, anxiety, and worst of…

Me on Writing

As much as I claim not to be reactionary, more often than not I end up eating my own words. I’d say I do not like to be reactionary, but truth be told, there’s a small part of me that takes some twisted pleasure…
