As most of you know, I have a vested interest in this subject. Why? First and foremost, I placed the survival of mankind on the shoulders of one Bethany Nitshimi. I did this knowing I might lose the attention of some fans of the genre — a fact I am perfectly fine with. Why? For so long, women in post-apocalyptic literature have been relegated to eye candy, relationship fodder, damsels in distress, or (on occasion) a ripped-dress wearing clone with unrealistic fighting abilities (played to the nines by Milla Jovavitch). Some may call “bias” on this; but, to me, the continued portrayal of women as a weakness in the apocalypse, is an insufferable insult.
I wanted to give everyone a treat before the most hallowed of nights arrives. This treat is from the up-coming eighth novel in the I Zombie series, Cry Zombie Cry. If you’ve read enough the series, you know how fond I am of nightmare scenes. Here is one I’m confident will have you wanting more of this novel to nom! This scene is later on in the book (Chapter 20). I won’t give anything away (and there is a LOT to give away at this point) other than to say the nightmares do serve a purpose. MU…HA…HA.
Ladies and gentlemonsters of the Jackverse — it’s time for yet another update on the status of Cry Zombie Cry. What is turning out to be one of the most epic chapters in the I Zombie series is spilling out of my brain and onto my computer. There is a big “but”.
Why do my friends always have big butts?
The plan was to release the novel late fall 2013. That, my dears, has once again changed.
It’s almost upon us! By the time this week is written up in the annals of history, the prequel to the I Zombie series, T-Minus Zero, will be available. To get you even further pumped, here is chapter one of that novel!
The apocalypse has struck and you’re there, waiting for more information on how to survive the onslaught of the undead. Your best bet is the writings of Jacob Plummer and Bethany Nitshimi. But it’s been a while since Bethany last put her fingers to typewriter to offer up words of wisdom. So what gives? Why is it taking me so long? Exactly why am I so horrible and lame to treat my fans this way?
Because I’m evil! MUHAHAHA!
I kid, I kid — with love.
The truth is, there’s much in the way of news, so let’s get down to bidness!
The countdown is nearing zero. Before that clock ticks down, I wanted to share with the Dark Hayride a taste of what is to come. Here is Chapter 3 of the prequel to the I Zombie series, T-Minus Zero.
Ladies and gentlement of the Dark Hayride, I give to you the first look at the full line up of the cover reboot for the I Zombie I series. Take a gander at these sexy beauties! You may drool in fear if you like. Just make sure you have your straight-jacket on first.
That’s right, I can enjoy a nice good natured ribbing at my book titles. Hey, if you can’t make fun of yourself…
Now, where was I? Oh yes, the I Zombie series. There’s lot’s cooking in that crock pot o’ death and I wanted to make sure the Jackverse was as up to date as possible. So, hop on the River Styx Express and let’s chat about the undead.
