Flea Market ZombiesThere has been so much zombie stuff going on of late, what with the #SummerZombie goodness and my own giving over my blog to the theme that I’m beginning to feel a bit zombie-ish myself. Which is not to say I’m getting tired of the shamblers, I’m not, I’m just running low on words for blog posts ๐Ÿ™‚

Happily, though, I don’t have to be wordy all the time ๐Ÿ™‚

Back on Father’s Day I had a guest blog at Sarah Lyons Flemming’s blog about why I still love zombies. You can read about it by clicking here. There’s even a short little poem there ๐Ÿ™‚

Then, yesterday I was interviewed at Books, Beer and Blogshit about Waste Not (And Other Funny Zombie Stories). You can check it out by clicking here.

Also, John Anthony James wrote a blog post a while back about why zombies are awesome. He’s dusted that off and spruced it up a bit for us, and you can read it by clicking here.

And now, to finish up, I’m going to link to a few zombtastic poems and stories from Niteblade. Because :-p There are loads more zombies at Niteblade, but I’m just picking some of the more recent ones to link to here ๐Ÿ™‚

Waste Not (And Other Funny Zombie Stories)

Waste Not (And Other Funny Zombie Stories)

The reason I’m giving my blog over to the zombies this month is this — Waste Not (And Other Funny Zombie Stories) My newest release! ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s not a great title, I’ll grant you, but the stories are cool. I’m better at writing stories than titles ๐Ÿ˜‰ In fact, after reading it Vanessa Ricci-Thode (author of Dragon Whisperer) described Waste Not (And Other Funny Zombie Stories) as, “Hit-you-in-the-gut dark humour [that] will have you howling.” ๐Ÿ™‚

Waste Not (And Other Funny Zombie Stories) is a collection of three of my previously-published zombie stories that I think will make you laugh. Now instead of having to purchase three different magazines to read them, you can get them all under one cover. The Kindle edition is $1.99 or free when you buy a paperback copy. And why did I make a paperback copy of a thirty-five page book (aside from the fact I wanted to put it on my ego shelf)? Well, because of all those times you’re shopping at Amazon and you’re like ‘Oh man, I just need $5 more to get free shipping!’ Well, lemme tell ya, have I got a deal for you!

…okay, maybe I mostly just wanted to be able to put it on my ego shelf LOL But still, it’s a fun little collection. Waste Not (And Other Funny Zombie Stories) includes:

Waste Not – The coming of zombies forces humankind back to the land, to a simple lifestyle where โ€˜Waste Not, Want Notโ€™ becomes more than a motto, it becomes the key to survival. And revenge.

Feeders – The zombie apocalypse will affect more than just humans, explore the repercussions of walking dead through the eyes of a cat in this story guaranteed to make you smile.

โ€ฆOh My! – What if the Wicked Witch of the West wasnโ€™t killed by Dorothyโ€™s house? What if she couldnโ€™t be, because she was a zombie. Dun dun dun!

One last thing? If you check out Waste Not (And Other Funny Zombie Stories) or if you’ve read any of the individual stories and enjoyed them, would you consider leaving me a review at Amazon or Goodreads? I would appreciate it ๐Ÿ™‚

In the meantime, if zombie munchkins don’t really sound like your thing (and if that’s the case how on earth did you end up on my blog? LoL) but other kinds of zombies make you happy, check out the Summer of Zombie Blog Tour. It even has t-shirts! (Dudes, my name on a t-shirt? My ego wouldn’t LET me say no LoL) Or just check back here, I’m going to be hosting some zombi-rific guest blogs over the next few weeks. You won’t want to miss ’em ๐Ÿ™‚
