A couple days ago I posted a review of 90 Minutes to Live. You can check that out HERE.
The interview went live on HorrorNews.net this morning, and now I am sharing it with my lovely followers as well :-). Please be sure to stick around after the interview to read more about ALS and how you can help Rocky and other victims of this horrible disease.

JK: We’ve barely put the ink to the pages of 90 Minutes to Live and are already in motion with our next Horror Novel Competition. 2012 will award another $2000 Grand Prize, and Brett J. Talley is on the panel to judge the entries. If you have been watching the catalog of published titles as it grew this year, you will have noticed a wide range of authors and themes are represented. We constantly seek and request submissions in Horror and Sci-Fi, our foundations, but are thrilled to receive so many good works in YA and Fantasy. We promise to publish the next outstanding book that we discover…
About ALS (Lou Gherig's Disease)
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually lead to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.
If you would like to contribute to the advancement of ALS research you may help Rocky specifically by buying copies of 90 Minutes to Live and/or purchase items from his personal Stephen King collection
and/or purchase copies of Rage Against the Night/(compiled by Shane Jiraiya Cummings).
You can also learn more about ALS and donate to the general cause through the ALS Association.
