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.
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!
Ho Ho Hello! It’s the holidays and even the Jackverse isn’t immune. And when you think of the holidays, the first thing to come to mind is the Twelve Days of Christmas. Granted I always hear Bob and Doug McKenzie singing their version of the song. But! It’s time for a version of that song to go along with the I Zombie series. And so, my lovely lords and lordesses of leaping… let’s on with song! Drink, and be Mary. Oh shoo…
Here in the Jackverse I often have cool bits of news to report. But this time around, I have something so incredibly, insanely, ridiculously awesome… you might fall to bits upon reading the words. So I preface this announcement with a warning — please put on your best straight jacket fashion before reading any further.
Oh how I have longed for this moment! Here, for your listening pleasure is the full-blown, insanely cool, smexy-sounds of the Zombie Response Team interviewing good ol’ Jack. Do enjoy.
Last week I published Lie Zombie Lie. This was a milestone for me on a number of levels. First of all, this is the fourth novel in the I Zombie series and offers both myself and my readers proof in the brain pudding that Bethany Nitshimi and company are here to stay. Second, and I say this with pom poms in hand, TEN FREAKIN’ NOVELS! It’s at this point which one would say with some assurance “Yeah, I’m here to stay.” And I’m not one to pat myself on the back much, but TEN FREAKIN’ NOVELS! Can I get a Muhaha from the Jackverse? I thought so.
But… what have I learned from this wacky hay ride? I want to offer all of you (readers AND writers) ten things that I have gleaned from this wacky pop dance? And so, without further hullabaloo, let’s get on with this bitch.
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.
