THE WRETCHED – The latest novel from JASON GUINN – now available!

The Wretched by Jason Guinn

The Wretched Front Cover - 72 dpi.jpg

Lucifer has been expelled to a place worse than Hell…Tucson, Arizona.

Having lost everything to the usurper Beelzebub, Lucifer finds himself trapped on earth, the one place he can die. Without options and shit out of luck, he does the unthinkable and realigns with his old nemesis, God, for a shot at vengeance against Beelzebub.

But there is a price.

Earth has been overrun by evil forces and God needs Lucifer to clean house. Forced to work with a band of redemption seeking degenerates, Lucifer must learn to put aside his hatred for mankind and learn to trust his teammates or they will not survive. Assisting Lucifer in his quest to liberate the world is the hot-tempered immortal Lilith, stoner Adam, a resurrected hit-man, and a witch with a pesky undead feline familiar called Dead Meat.

And they only have three days.

With the clock ticking, Lucifer must get his unwanted team up to snuff for their first mission while being hunted by his ex-wife, Agrat. Their mission is to assassinate an earthbound Demon Lord named Hornblas, who parades around as the head of the largest music conglomerate in the world.

And it gets worse.

Their contracts with God prohibit them from killing innocents or falling back into their sinful ways. Failure results in immediate banishment to Hell and certain death for Lucifer.

Filled with angels and demons, trips to Hell, and other supernatural beasties, The Wretched follows Lucifer through an ever-increasing vortex of trouble across the Copper State with a final climactic realization leading to the unraveling of Lucifer himself.

—Dave Wood, Former Books Editor, Minneapolis Star Tribune and Past Vice-President, National Book Critics Circle

What if your whole life was an experiment?

Prior to meeting Carlie, Mickey’s biggest problem consisted of escaping the wrath of the ruler-wielding nuns of St. Asors.

Confused by the stirrings of young love, Mickey began to sense the presence of a shadowy villain, driven by hatred, on a relentless pursuit that would not end until both Mickey and Carlie were dead.

Burning Bulb Publishing to Launch Filmmaking Division – Now Seeking Producers and Investors; 20% ROI

Article by Gary Lee Vincent, Publisher

Indie publisher Burning Bulb Publishing is excited to begin seeking funding to finance three new feature motion pictures over the next 18 months.

Would you like to be part of the emerging landscape of film, but would like the assurance of working with a team of talented creators with a proven track record? Now you can!

Burning Bulb Publishing, founded in 2008 and publisher of over 100 books and audio recordings, is launching Burning Bulb Productions, a filmmaking division aimed at developing micro-budget pictures with incredible story-lines that can be made via our network of filmmakers and studios.

 

For 2017-2018, we have three scripts under consideration:

Project 1: Adult Comedy – A ‘Benny Hill’-like comedy that follows a misunderstood insurance adjuster as he struggles through a hard day on the job working claims and keeping aroused customers happy.

Project 2: Horror/Suspense – A paralegal encounters more than she bargains for when her car gets impounded and she finds herself stranded in a backwoods town ran by a bloodthirsty cult.

Project 3: Thriller – A prosecutor seeks vigilante justice against the owner of a foster care home and his associates when the legal system ignores numerous charges against him.

 

How can you help?

We are looking to acquire $15,000 per picture ($45,000 total) to fully produce all three films.  Each will be ‘green-lighted’ once $10,000 is secured as Burning Bulb Publishing (Burning Bulb Productions) will match each project with a $5,000 grant once the base is secured.

Anyone wishing to be a Producer in one of these projects will receive a 20% return on their investment above their principal contribution.

 

How does this work?

During pre-production, the investor/producer will finance part or all of a given picture up to $15,000 per project. This funding will be collected one month prior to shooting the film.

Filming and post production will take place.

Afterward, the investor will receive 20% of their investment back once the movie is complete, and the full 100% of their principal upon a funded distribution deal or completion of a theatrical tour.  In other words, 120% back.

Each picture will take between  9 months and 18 months to complete, with full repayment plus bonus within 24 months.

 

How are the credits structured?

$1,000 – $2,500 = Associate Producer
$5,000 = Executive Producer
$10,000 – $15,000 = Producer (this can be split between 2 or 3 productions).

 

Could I receive points instead of a flat 20% bonus?

We plan to value each project at $100,000 upon completion.  This is because there will be A LOT of additional behind-the-scenes work (and deferred expenses) from the studios, cast, crew and VFX teams that will be adding value far and above the initial seed money required here.

Anyone fully funding a film can request points instead of the flat bonus based on $1,000 equaling 1 percentage point (1%) of the picture’s 100,000 end value.  In other words, if you fully fund a picture for $15,000, you can opt to receive 15% of the net proceeds of the film on all deals.   Other ‘points’ are reserved as deferments to the various actors and crews we are working with to pay them beyond the core operational needs we are seeking here.

Should you wish to be paid in ownership percentage points, these points are in lieu of a flat buyout and unlike a guaranteed principal return with 20% ROI bonus proposed in the other structure, no guarantee is made on a picture’s performance and or if points will earn more.

 

I am in!  How do I contribute or learn more?

If you would like to be a producer on one of these projects or wish to review the scripts, learn more about the studios behind each project, etc., please complete the form below.  Be advised that a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) is required upon receipt of any confidential information.

NEVERLASTING – The Illustrated Debut by Johnny Daggers – now available!

Neverlasting

“From the modern day Edgar Allan Poe, comes a piece of writing so capturing, enthralling and all consuming, its hard to stop reading. The darkened undertones which scream ‘make me into a movie’ and the quickened pace the quality story runs in all make for an amazing read, to us our ‘must read’ of 2016.” – TE Magazine.

Choosing where you wed is just as important as who you wed. Ultimately, the wrong choice can lead to certain death. Sadly, this was the case for Nora and Ned, a young couple who wanted nothing more than to build a life together, but when they said their vows in the old Herring Grove, “’til death do us part,” took on an entirely new meaning.

As their vows of sanctity echoed through the hollow, they awoke a century old curse which vowed to never let love enter its hills again. Now forced to confront both their inner demons and ghosts from the past, Nora and Ned must fight to uproot the seeds of lost love and despair and bring new life to the plagued, barren land.

BELLY TIMBER – A Novel By Gary Lee Vincent, Solon Tsangaras and John Russo, soon to be a major motion picture!

From the writers of Darkened Hills, Detour to Armageddon, and Night of the Living Dead comes a novel unlike any other…

In the 1800’s, ordinary people learned the secret of the Kala and undertook extraordinary measures to rid the earth of this evil. This is their story.

For John McCormick, life on the Indiana frontier held nothing but promise. His settlement along the White River would soon become the crossroads of America. Friends and family from back in Ohio and other points east were all making plans to see what all the fuss was about in the newly-formed city of Indianapolis. Yes, things were good. John had his general store and his friend George Pogue had his blacksmith business. Claims were being staked and relations with the native Indians were amicable. The town was growing and nothing could be better… or so he thought.

In Ohio, an evil was brewing. The Lecky Family, a group of ruthless Mongolian nomads, had made their way to America and were practicing their cannibalistic religion of Kala with reckless abandon. No one was safe, not even John McCormick’s family.

After the vicious slaughter of John’s brother Thomas and Thomas’ wife and children by the Leckys, John has no choice but to confront this evil head on. As each day passes, more and more people fall victim to the Kala Clan’s evil intent. With time running out, can John McCormick and his posse of frontiersmen find and defeat this notorious foe? Find out in Belly Timber.

Screenplay by Ken Wallace & Dustin Kay.  Novel available at amazon.

A Burning Bulb First: TWO BRAND NEW RELEASES in the same day!

Best of 2015In a first in the seven-year history of BURNING BULB PUBLISHING, we are pleased to announce that TODAY (August 29, 2015) we have made history by releasing not one, but TWO exciting new books to our collection of amazing literature!


First, for the Bizarro/over-the-top fiction/erotica fans, let me present to you DR. ORGASM, by the incomparable WOL-VRIEY:

Dr. Orgasm by Wol-vriey

Communism = the political doctrine outlawing ‘coming’ (i.e. the female orgasm).

Courtney Taylor is young, intelligent, beautiful, and successful. She also has a boyfriend who loves her deeply.

The problem is, no matter what Courtney does, she can’t climax during sex.

When Florence Rigid’s communist forces destroy the city of Metaphor, Courtney and her friends Teresa, Highball, Miki, and Heather are cast into the midst of a quest to find the only person able to save the land of Innuendo—Dr. Carol Orgasm, wanted by the communists for developing the O-Pill, a wonder drug that grants women sexual ecstasy on demand.

The communists will do anything to get their hands on the O-Pill and prevent its reaching the millions of Innuendo’s women.

But Courtney desperately wants that pill too. And so it’s now a race between Courtney and the communists to find Dr. Orgasm first.

And Courtney has no choice but to win this race.

She must win it: For her own orgasm . . . and for the freedom of female sexuality everywhere.


Second, for the fans of classic horror, NELSON W. PYLES’ latest release EVERYTHING HERE IS A NIGHTMARE will be sure to satisfy your dark cravings:

Everything Here Is A Nightmare by Nelson W. Pyles

“Pyles makes it look easy. His characters come instantly alive with the cocksure verve and swagger of rock stars.”- Daniel Knauf, creator of HBO’s “Carnivale,” Executive Producer/Writer, ABC’s “The Blacklist.”

The critically acclaimed author of Demons, Dolls and Milkshakes returns with fifteen tales of horror and suspense with Everything Here is a Nightmare.

From zombies in the old west, to a young boy tempted by the Devil. From vampires with romantic longing, to an abandoned lighthouse haunted by vengeful spirits. From a serial killer getting unholy justice, to a haunted English race car, Nelson W Pyles invites you to explore a landscape of fear, suspense and horror.

Take his hand and hold on tight. Remember that whatever you find here, whatever you see, no matter what you might think it could be…know this:

RISE OF THE DEAD – The Zombie Anthology You’ve Been Waiting For!

BURNING BULB PUBLISHING
PROUDLY PRESENTS

Rise of the Dead

From John Russo, co-author of Night of the Living Dead™:

“By now almost everyone knows that the concept of the modern flesh-eating zombie originated in the sixties with Night of the Living Dead™. That’s why I think that this anthology of short stories paying homage to that fact is a wonderful idea. When I was asked to write such a story, I was told that each and every story in the book would have to take place in or around the time, in 1968, when the horror classic that I co-authored took place…

Perhaps, for you, dear reader, some of the stories you will read in these pages will take their place as some of your very own favorites. Please step back with me into the 1960’s – a time of peaceniks, rednecks and unspeakable zombie horror!!”

RISE OF THE DEAD

The biggest bank heist in US history. And Tom Palmer can’t remember pulling it off. And no, this isn’t your standard case of amnesia.

After a one-night-stand gone horribly wrong, Boston salesman Tom Palmer wakes up with a vagina implanted in his left hand.

Then his day gets worse:

Tom is transported across space-time to a nightmare version of Boston, one where the Bizarro virus has transformed half the population into cannibals.

He also learns that the vagina in his hand is prophetic, i.e. it talks . . . after sex.

With 130 people left dead during his bank heist and six billion dollars missing, Tom knows he’s living on borrowed time. It is in his best interests not to remember anything.

Because once he does . . .

But then everything gets so much odder. Tom begins remembering what has to be someone else’s life. Or is it?
