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.
It seems I’ve had the mark of the beast slapped upon my forehead once again (this time by Danielle Blanchard). That mark? The next big thing. But since this is the second time I’ve been tagged as the ‘Next big thing’, I’m calling this the NEXT next big thing. What’s really great about this is that I get to share with you my current work in progress — which just happens to be another entry in the I Zombie series!
Warning — you must “MUHAHA” before continuing on.
This coming weekend, the fourth installment of the I Zombie series goes live! That’s right, you can get your hands on the latest adventures of Bethany Nitshimi in a few short days. This particular release is of significance for a number of reasons. Shall we count the ways? Oh lets.
As you know, I write a lot about the apocalypse. So much so, some days I feel as if I’ve actually lived through it. Because of this, I get asked a lot of questions. Most of the questions are about zombies, how best to kill them, and how do I really think they’ll come about. But every once in a while someone will ask me how I plan on getting around once the Big A happens. Well, I have a simple answer for that — Bike.
Nope, I’m not talkin’ Harley or Crotch Rocket. I’m talking one of the single most elegant and efficient forms of transportation ever made. The bicycle.
And now… it’s time to get undead with fellow zombie author, Julianne Snow. Are you ready to get your brains nommed?
It’s my pleasure to welcome horror connoisseur, Staci Smith to the great jacking. She is the owner of the web site Fear Dance, where her goal is to unite readers with horror writers they may not have ever known. So stand out of your graves and give a great rigor’d round of applause to Ms. Smith.
Thea Gregory offers her video review of my book My Zombie My. Caution, awesome abounds.You’ve been warned.
The Walking Dead has brought some serious street cred to the zombie. And it’s about damn time! The Vampire has had his sparkly time in the spotlight. So move over Count Abula and let some moaners and walkers have their fifteen minutes (but let’s give them a bit more than that, as it takes them a bit longer to get around). With the viewing of the latest episode, I want to address something that has come up. As per usual, I will not give away spoilers.
Science. Who doesn’t love science (besides the Creationists)? Science is our friend and it helps us to not only improve our lives, but helps to understand how things work. Of course, in some instances, science can wreak a little special flavor of havoc on our lives. One such way is the creation of zombies. That’s right, I said it… zombies.
I Zombie is the exciting post-apocalyptic zombie series by Jack Wallen surrounding the Mengele virus and a cast of survivors hell-bent on taking down the government-run collective attempting to cleanse the world of those they don’t deem worthy.
That’s right my squee-tastic readers, the entire I Zombie trilogy has been enshrined in a single tome. And you get get that book, with the lovely new cover, created by yours truly, at the usual stops. But you need to know more don’t you? Of course you do. So hop on in and find out.
That’s right my lovelies, the novella based on my Zombie Radio podcast is now available. This book includes the short story, Silent Night, which is a secret look into The Zero Day Collective you never would have seen before!
That’s right my lovelies, the final book in the I Zombie trilogy is now available. So you better shamble on over to Amazon and snag your copy straight away before the horde takes you down, cracks open your skull, and munches on your thinky-bits. Not sure what this book is about? Well then, let me fill you in.
Ladies and gentlemen of the Jack-verse, I have a Dog Star level question for you at this moment. It’s not a hard question (nor will you be graded on your response), but it’s one I’ve been pondering of late and decided maybe it would be best to reach out to those that matter the most — you.
When last we met our intrepid crew from The Walking Dead they were leaping from an exploding CDC. But more than that — the show itself was starting to slowly descend into too much feel-good family fluff about sisters and dolphin necklaces and too much concern for everything BUT the namesake of the series — the undead. With the ninty minute opening episode of season two all of that changed and the zombie horde came out in force.
That’s right my lovelies, it has finally happened — the apocalyptic nightmare began in I Zombie I has continued to wreak havoc on the planet in the form of My Zombie My.
Since I Zombie I was pushed to “free” status on Amazon.com, it has been slowly climbing up the rank and file of the horror genre. Currently it stands at #3 in Occult and #10 in Horror. This is big and all part of my master plan (insert ominous Bwahaha here).
I don’t pimp Zombie Radio nearly enough, but what I have coming up needs a pimpin’.
Another #samplesunday is upon us and, once again, I wanted to share a sample from the first book in the “I Zombie” trilogy, I Zombie I (purchase for $0.99 cents on Amazon and Barnes & Noble or get it FREE on Smashwords). This time around I thought I’d share the chapter that brought the name of the book about (which then inspired the names of the final two books: My Zombie My and Die Zombie Die.)
