Anyone that follows me or my blog will know that I'm a big fan of todays guest. I've had the honour of working with Armand on a couple of projects now - Let's Scare Cancer to Death, Fading Hope & State of Horror Illinois, and I always feel honoured to have my name alongside his.
Not only is he a handsome devil with an awesome beard (or so he keeps telling me!) and loves M&M's and can't imagine a world without them (or at least not one that's worth living in) but he writes like a freaking machine! This man has racked up some serious word counts over the years and if you're serious about your reading and writing, he's someone that you should definitely take notice of.
Armand Rosamilia is a New Jersey boy currently living in sunny Florida, where he writes when he's not sleeping.
He's written over 100 stories that are currently available, including a few different series:
"Dying Days" extreme zombie series
"Keyport Cthulhu" horror series
"Flagler Beach Fiction Series" contemporary fiction
"Metal Queens" non-fiction music series
He also loves to talk in third person... because he's really that cool. He's a proud Active member of HWA as well.
You can find him at http://armandrosamilia.com for not only his latest releases but interviews and guest posts with other authors he likes!
and e-mail him to talk about zombies, baseball and Metal: firstname.lastname@example.org

What do you do when you’re not writing about the end of days or things that go bump in the night?
Who has time for anything else? I read a lot of nonfiction, I watch baseball games (go Red Sox!) and I eat way too much. I find myself thinking about food way too much, as well… if I could convert those hours into writing time I’d double my output each day.
Tell me about your latest book, something unusual if possible.
Anything in particular that you want to say about it? Where did you draw the inspiration from? Favourite characters?
My latest release is “Hollywood Hellmouth,” a horror comedy of sorts. What’s unique about it? Besides four of us writing it? (Jack Wallen, Brent Abell and Jay Wilburn and I joined forces to put this one together)… I’ve never written anything quite this goofy before, even though I have humor in so many of my stories. This was beyond goofy in parts, and then the horror element was ramped up a few notches. It was fun to write and should be fun to read.
Book Blurb & Cover
Solomon wanted to make the greatest horror movie ever. He was willing to do anything to make this a reality - even unleashing real, apocalyptic evil upon the Earth. Haunted bathrooms, Velvet Elvis gateways to Hell, demonic possession, problem actors, editing issues, social media, and Jimmy will plague his production, but nothing will stop his dreams.
Horror Humor from one twisted writer is too much… imagine four of them getting together like grade school kids drawing naughty pictures on the bathroom wall… you’ve been warned.
"After reading this, I can't believe I ever let him touch me." - Brent's wife
"I couldn't read past the first chapter. What they did with Velvet Elvis is beyond bad taste!" - Armand's Wife
"Seriously, I'm done. This book turned my husband into something I could no longer sleep with ... at least not without double bagging a hazmat suit. Vile and disgusting.” - Jack's Wife
"My mother told me that if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. And don't marry Jay. He seems off. I've already said too much." - Jay's Wife
What are you working on next and when can we expect it?
I am working on 7 or 8 different projects right now. Always busy. “Dying Days 5” and “Hell’s Bells: Highway To Hell 2” are in first draft stages… I’m writing another movie adaptation (another zombie film)… the final book in the contemporary fiction “Flagler Beach Fiction Series” is almost done… a secret project with another author… an apocalyptic novella co-written with James Glass… a horror humour novella with Frank Edler… and a few more things.
What makes you want to write about dystopia/the apocalypse and or horror?
It is a metaphor for the world we live in, and I feel that with society at large… nah, writing about zombies and death and the world coming to an end is just really cool to write about.
Are you a prepper with an apocalypse plan in place, or are you just going to wing it?
My hope is to either be Patient Zero or die rather quickly. I am too fat and lazy to try to survive, and a world without M&M’s isn’t a world I want to live in.
What’s your apocalypse/horror song?
“Fight ‘Em ‘Til You Can’t” by Anthrax… thrash metal song about zombies? Perfect together.
All writers know that reviews are our gold, but are there any reviews—both good and bad—that have stuck with you?
Nope. Because I never, ever, ever read reviews. Nothing good can come of it. Everyone has an opinion and if they love it… great. If they hate it? I don’t want to lose sleep over it.
Happy reading my little book whores!
