April 21, 2016. Talk about an awesome surprise! On tonight's episode of Orphan Black, the clones are hiding out in the basement of a comic book store and one of them asks if they have the latest issue of the "ROT & RUIN" comic. How cool is that?
And ... check out the poster of my V-Wars comic in the window! Here's the full cover art by Ryan Brown.
This is one of the proudest days in my life as a writer and writing teacher. The books in the photo are actually two sides of a 'Double Down', two novellas in one, published by JournalStone. On one side is DARK OF NIGHT, a novella I wrote with former writing student Rachael Lavin (known online as Rachael Elle). It combines the Joe Ledger series with DEAD OF NIGHT and the ROT & RUIN. On the flip-side is FLESH AND FIRE, a novella written by another former writing student, Lucas Mangum. This is a debut for both of them, and I can guarantee that these are writers who are going to make a serious impact on the world of horror and dark fantasy. Congratulations to them both! The book debuts in print and eBook on Tuesday 4/22 and on audio in May (read by Ray Porter).

I’m insanely honored to be the recipient of an award that is named after me. Yeah...I know. That’s surreal. The CCA Writers Conference –the nation’s only absolutely free writers conference for teens—has created the Jonathan Maberry Inspiring Teens Award.
