I’m just back from Her Royal Majesty’s Steampunk Symposium in Long Beach, California plus a book signing at Mysterious Galaxy in Redondo Beach, California. Both were amazing events and I’ve promised to write about the events for Dark Cargo. During the Queen’s Couture at the Steampunk Symposium, I read a short story called “The Zombie Shortage” that was well received. That story appears in the anthology Zombiefied: An Anthology of All Things Zombie.
Appropriately enough, when I returned from my trip to California, I learned that a brand new non-fiction book about writing zombie fiction is now available. The book includes my essay “Expect the Unexpected: Embracing the Cliché to Add Surprises to Your Zombie Fiction.” Also in the book are essays by Keith Gouveia, Lee Pletzers, Lou Antonelli, Eric S. Brown, Armand Rosamilia and many more. There are forty-four essays in all. If you want to breathe new life into your zombie fiction, this is the book for you!
What’s more, the ebook edition is absolutely free through Saturday, January 21. You can pick up the free edition for your Kindle at: http://www.amazon.com/Zombie-Writing-ebook/dp/B006YZDIE0/. If you prefer the paper edition, that’s available for the low price of $9.99 at: https://www.createspace.com/3774170.
Hope you’ll check out this new book and try your own hand at reanimating some corpses!
