The Zombies Are Coming

Yes that is right, the zombies are coming. But no not the real ones you are thinking of walking down the street slowly asking for brains.

You see my friend Jason (yes I have friends outside of the internets) has been writing a fiction book about zombies for the last year. Well it is finally finished and in the process of being printed into paperback. It is the first book of a trilogy series.

I have seen bits and pieces of it on Facebook and it looks great. Sometime in the next two weeks I should land a paperback copy in my hands. So as soon as I read it I will post a review of it. And the book should be released in early June.

Here is a write up from the website where you can pre-order the book:

"I didn't see Rebecca die for the second time."

The United States military hides a secret: the true and completely real existence of eat-your-brains, one-bite-and-you're-dead zombies. The Army has known for over a hundred years that they exist, and have been quietly and expertly keeping the secret.

Until now.

His hometown is overrun and destroyed, with everything and everyone he has ever known dead and gone. The sole survivor of Fall Creek, David Blake, joins a secret military group to combat the single greatest threat our world has ever known. Unfortunately, his help may come too late, for even as victories over the walkers begin to grow, the seeds of our ultimate doom are sown from within, and at the last, only a brave few may survive to carry on.

(Actual cover art from the book)

So if you are interested in zombies, please go to my friends Facebook page and show him some love. And if you are interested in buying a copy of the book, please visit this site where you can pre-order the book (which comes autographed and with an e-reader copy as well during the pre-order period).

And if you are not into zombie books, please pass on this post to your friends who like zombies as I am trying to help my friend out.

And to thank you in advance, when the book comes out I will be buy myself a copy and another copy to do a give away with for those of you who can help spread the word about my friend Jason’s first book.
