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.
The world is losing its collective mind. Every day you see something worse and worse happening around us. Someone claiming to be an “adult” and a “parent” leaves a baby or animal locked in a car when the temperature is in the triple digits. Those claiming to have brains somewhere trapped inside their skulls are taking drugs that cause them to want to eat their fellow man (and not in the good way!) Politicians are lying, CEOs are making 600% more than what we are making, cats and dogs are STILL not living together (why did you TEASE us Bill Murray?)!
So with all of this going on around us, how do we deal with it? How in the name of Geddy Lee do shore up our sanity and continue on…
Zombies!!! That’s right, they’re real now. The news is as old as your grandmas granny panties (redundant much?), but it’s so bizarre to most that people seem to be having trouble wrapping their living brain tissue around it. The scene was just as if it were pulled from the I Zombie series — a naked man enraged, takes down another man and begins dining….on his face.
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.
I’ve been tweeting zombie survival tips on twitter for some time now. They’ve been such a big hit, I thought I’d collect some of them here, for those of you not on twitter to enjoy.
So read these carefully, they might one day save your brains from the nomming horde.
Lie Zombie Lie is the forth book in the I Zombie series of post-apocalyptic zombie novels written by, yours truly, Jack Wallen. Here, Jack reads the first few pages of this soon to be published work for a sneak peak at what is to come! Enjoy a little Zombie Theatre!
And now… it’s time to get undead with fellow zombie author, Julianne Snow. Are you ready to get your brains nommed?
Thea Gregory offers her video review of my book My Zombie My. Caution, awesome abounds.You’ve been warned.
Recently I’ve been bemoaning the fact that The Walking Dead had become little more than an undead soap opera. Well, as of this past Sunday, the undead horde went Ozzy Osbourne on that drama and bit its head off. It was ugly. it was fierce. It was necessary.
