Hello from Kansas! I’ve been a bit slow with announcements lately thanks to the move, but this one is pretty big:
My zombie-tracking story “If All Else Perished” is making its second appearance in print in the Riverdale Avenue Books anthology Still Hungry For Your Love: Further Adventures in Zombie Romance. The anthology includes 15 stories, and they span the whole spectrum from the classic themes of the genre to some new and experimental angles on the popular theme, so we’ve got old-school Voodoo zombies, the classic zombie outbreak in an All-American small town, zombies with burgeoning self-awareness looking for lost loves, and startlingly clever zombies finding nonviolent ways to grab a meal. Some are hilarious, others end in tears, and others are triumphant and sweet. You can pick up a copy on Smashwords or Amazon; if you do, please leave a review.
Several of the authors from Still Hungry for Your Love have volunteered to share their darkest thoughts about writing, love, and zombies here, so keep an eye out for the interview series!
Cora the zombie-tracking German Shepherd and her human teammates first appeared last Halloween in FEAR: A Modern Anthology of Horror and Terror, courtesy of Crooked Cat Books. Net royalties from sales of FEAR will be split between will be split between Doctors Without Borders and Barnardo’s, a UK-based charity that fights child exploitation, and the anthology raised about £1,000 in its first six months. Don’t forget to pick up both volumes (Volume 1 and Volume 2).
