Thanks, Ann. Good to be back in the KB. It's been very hard to write with two little ones running around all day. ;) So this release is also a tremendous relief!

The Pre-Order is up! :) 79 A.D. will be officially released on June 29th!

Since Londinium, Taras and Theron have gone their separate ways. One now roams the Spanish countryside, feeding on robbers and bandits, while the other hides in a cave on the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius, experimenting with his newfound powers. Neither has thought much about the other over the last eighteen years.

But Baella, the ancient renegade, has plans for the pair, and her plans don't involve letting the two live out their lives in relative peace. Through her treachery, they are reunited in Pompeii, but not even Baella can stop the coming cataclysm.

Powerful forces are rising in the world of the Bachiyr, and Taras and Theron may find themselves caught up in something much bigger than they can imagine. That is, if either of them survive the mountain's fiery anger.

"David McAfee combines historical fiction with vampires like no one else, boldly merging frightening lore with real events to create stories that are impossible to put down." -- Jeremy Robinson, international bestselling author of Project Nemesis and Island 731

Some advance reviews for 79 A.D. have already started to trickle in. I've posted them on

The Kindle file also holds a preview for my next novel, BAIT. Enjoy!

Thanks, guys. :) We're pretty excited about the whole thing.

So it's been a while since I revisited this entry, but I wanted to share some exciting news!

Hollywood has come calling! :)

Details can be found by clicking the link below.


Just adding to the chorus of congratulations. You must be excited. Just picked myself a copy up of 33 A.D, it looks like just my kind of thing.

Thanks! I hope you enjoy it.

Yeah, we are ridiculously excited here. Went out to dinner last night and everything. Of course, we had my 2yo son, so no champagne, but still. Tortellini and a glass of water works just as well. ;)

Thanks for the well wishes, everyone. I can't begin to tell you how excited we are about this. :)

Congratulations!  :)

Did you get a clause inserted that says you get a cameo part in the film? That would be neat. A number of authors have appeared in films made off their books over the years.

Nope. Nothing like that in the contract. It'd be cool, though.

Huge congratulations. I can't imagine a more exciting development. Do you know how they came across your book? Did one of their top exec's just randomly read it, or were they watching the charts, or...?

I don't know. Best guess: one of their interns found it and liked it enough to show the boss.

Woah, that's really cool!

Are you allowed to share any more details about the contract? General numbers range for the rest of us dreaming of something like that?

Actually, I probably shouldn't even have mentioned the deal yet, but I've been sitting on the news for weeks and just couldn't help myself.

I really can't divulge any of the deals from the contract other than it's a film option on some of my books.

The NYT is next.

Huge congrats  ;D ;D Are you still doing the happy dance?

Do they demand e-book rights?

No. This is strictly a film/performance rights deal. I retain all publishing rights.

That's awesome. The Net is the movie that started my life long affection for Sandra Bullock...mmm...congrats that's so cool. Out of curiosity were you approached or did you have an agent working on your behalf?

Winkler contacted me via email just before Halloween to ask if the rights were available. I did not have an agent at the time. Three days after Winkler contacted me, he sent me an offer for the option. I sent the offer to an agent who represents a friend of mine, and he took me on and negotiated a nice deal on my behalf. It all happened pretty quick.

So I just signed a contract. My novel, 33 A.D. (as well as the sequel, 61 A.D.) has just been optioned for film by Winkler Films in Hollywood, CA. Winkler Films is the production company that brought us Rocky, Raging Bull, Goodfellas, Taken, The Net, and a great many other movies.

Needless to say, my wife and I are pretty dang excited. :)

I miss BarbieDull. She was so much more adept with PhotoShop than me...

Where did she go?

I guess I'll just have to graft Dalglish's head onto a porcupine's body and post it myself.

A post to resurrect an old favorite thread...

I miss my dreadlocks.

I was feeling nostalgic this morning and looked up this thread. man, this was fun. I think I might have wet myself a little rereading it.

Very, very late to the party, but I just found this thread today. I quit my day job in April 2011. Since then, my only source of income has been my writing, which has thus far exceeded the minimum of $500 a month (to be eligible for this thread) every month since May 2010.

Good to see you around again by the way.  :)

Thanks. I don't get on here much since my son was born, but I like to pop in every now and then to stir up trouble. ;)

Good luck with NaNo!

Who is doing it this year? I'm not, but that's because I've got too many irons in the fire already. How about you?

« on: October 29, 2013, 03:34:22 am »
Typically, it's best to let a manuscript sit for a little while before doing revisions, anyway. At least in my opinion. I like to give myself a little distance between finishing the first draft and beginning the editing/revising process. Fresh eyes, you know.

But that sounds too much like enabling, so get to work! (Note that I say this as I, too, am on KB instead of working...and I have a deadline to meet!)

I'd say about half of the Kindle books I've bought have come from signatures here in the KB.

Did you know 33 A.D. was the third book (how fitting!) I downloaded onto my then new-to-me Kindle? :)

I really enjoyed it, too.

:) Thank you. That just made my day.

Been a while since I've been to KB. Thought I'd pop in and see how everyone is doing. :)
