The Reviews are Coming in for #VampHire #PDF1 #BookBoost #snrtg

In one week, my first YA eBook will be published. As this rolling ball begins really rolling, it’s been getting some excellent reviews too. I’ll just let them speak for themselves.

“Finally, a refreshing addition to the vampire genre.”

“A thrilling novel vampire-lovers can sink their teeth into.”

“A thrilling novel where traditional meets dystopian. Brilliant.”

“Although I am not a huge fan of vampire books, I am a fan of Gerald Rice. I love everything that he has written. And Vamp-Hire is no different. First off, forget all that typical vampire lore. This is nothing like that. This is original and modern and more realistic. It was full of action and emotion and I had a lot of trouble putting it down. I sure hope there will be a sequel to this because I can’t see it ending here. Great job Gerald, I think this may be the best yet!”

You can pre-order a copy of Vamp-Hire for your Kindle.

Smells Like #bookboost #snrtg #iartg

Smells Like


Some books just don’t get enough attention. That being said, I’ve decided to offer my little eBook, Smells Like, for free this weekend. Maybe you’ll think about it during the Big Game or on your way to the store or something, but it’s yours–free for the cost of clicking this link.

I was looking at the Amazon page for this story and saw it doesn’t have anywhere near enough reviews. So why not get a copy and review it?

And as long as you’re already on Amazon, why not hop over to Anything but Zombies and pre-order the anthology before it’s published this May? I’ve already reserved my copy!

It’s My Birthday! #iartg #bookboost #snrtg


Today is the day. I intend to sit around the house, watch TV and play video games. You can have just as much fun as me if you get yourself a few free books for your Kindle. You can download these titles free through the end of the year on Amazon (except The Nooner; that one goes free on the 29th): The Revelation, The Closet, Slay Me, The Dogs of City Hall, The Nooner. If you download from your computer, please tweet it to me @GeraldRice or use hashtag #rzp.

Oh, and if you like the first two installments of the Returned series, download a copy of The Bargain. It’s only $0.99.

Big Announcement! & Win the ‘Sickest. Zombies. Ever’. #rzp #bookboost #iart

Want a free Kindle copy of the novella Zombiephiles.com calls the ‘Sickest. Zombies. Ever.’? Like my most recent post on my fan page and you could be 1 of 3 winners. I will be doing the Rafflecopter giveaway this Friday. Read for yourself what other people are saying about Fleshbags.

I’m doing this because I have a HUGE announcement to make. It’s been some time in the works (actually going back to January), but I’ve signed a deal with the Simon and Schuster imprint Atria to edit my very first anthology titled Anything but Zombies! due summer 2015. I’ve assembled an awesome group of writers–as a matter of fact, I’m surprised I got them all. Armand Rosamilia, Jeff Strand, and Tonia Brown just to name a few. This comes in addition to my first YA novel coming in November from Permuted Press.

What’s that you say? You’d prefer a printed copy? That actually has two stories. Fleshbags and The Zombie ShowOne lucky winner will receive a signed copy.

This year is going to round out quite nicely with more stuff lining up for next year and beyond. I have other things in the works, but my two new babies come first. So get on board now, maybe win yourself a free book. Hurry, before I become a complete snob and completely ignore you.

The Beggar’s Bowl Cover #rzp #iartg #bookplugs #bookworm

Here it is, as promised.

The Beggar's Bowl 2


This eBook is currently free on Amazon and I always felt the cover I’d made for it was so inadequate that it turned people off even though it’s reviewed pretty well. The intent is to have an excerpt of Axe to the Face in the eBook sometime this weekend in anticipation of the release. So download a copy and review it, why don’t you?

And join the Axe to the Face FB page too! All giveaway stuff will be posted there.

Another Review for Where the Monsters Are #rzp #bookplugs #bookworm #iartg #kindle

Download a copy for $0.99 on Amazon.

It’s been at least a month since I looked for any new reviews on this and I was surprised that there have been two since I last checked. One 5-star, one 4, but both are fantastic. Read for yourself and download a copy!

One of the first things I read by Gerald Rice, who is a horror author living a couple of towns over from me, was a flash-fiction story called “Sparing Change.” It rivaled Joe Hill and Stephen King, I swear! It was the coolest, creepiest short-short story I head read in a long time.

Since then, Gerald has put out a lot of stories, and I’ve read some of them. They’re uniformly interesting and compelling. Where the Monsters are is one of those stories that leaves you with more questions than answers, which I love.

Are the monsters real? or is Gerald having some kind of mental break? Or a combination? I haven’t re-read it, like one of the other reviewers suggested, but I think I will, to see if any of those questions get answered. Frankly, I hope they don’t. It’s much more interesting to put your own imagination to the task of deciding.

And even if you’ve already enjoyed this little gem, why not check out some of my other books?
