For those following the REVIVAL Tour, a slight change, just for today:)
REVIVAL's HOST: I'm hanging with Crystal Collier, who invited me to participate in her Writerly Wednesdays, (which includes her famous Truth or Lie game.) Don't miss it... Did I jump off a bridge, or bump into Muhammad Ali... ?? I hope you can visit... this one's a classic!
Now, I'm clearing the decks for a dear friend, Sir David Powers King, who has an announcement, and a very cool contest - that could make you immortal (at least in the Library of Congress :)
Title of David's New Book: The Undead Road: My Zombie Summer: Part 1
Publisher: CreateSpace / Dashboard Books
Ebook Release: Jan. 1, 2016
Paperback: Jan. 26, 2016
Cover by Steven Novak
Nothing brings the family together like a zombie apocalypse …
Fifteen-year-old Jeremy Barnes would rather watch a zombie movie than shoot a real one, but he has no choice if his family wants to survive the end of the world. Their plan? Drive across the infected United States to a cabin in the Colorado Rockies without a scratch, but their trip takes a complicated detour in the middle of Nebraska when they find Kaylynn, a girl who can handle a baseball bat better than Jeremy can hold a .45 Berretta. And when they stumble into a sanctuary, Jeremy soon learns that Kaylynn is stronger than she looks—a deadly secret lies inside her.
After the radio picks up a distress call from Kansas City about a possible cure, Jeremy’s parents go with a team to investigate. They never return. The only way to find their parents is for Jeremy and his sister Jewel to rely on a dangerous girl who might just turn on them at any moment.
A while ago, David invited the blogosphere to let him turn one
unfortunate lucky contestant into a zombie for The Undead Road. The winner was Ilima
Todd, who is now the awesome author of Remake.
The next installment of My Zombie Summer is underway, and David wants to do
this contest again. Want to be in a zombie book? Not only is this your chance,
but it is your choice!
Between now and next Wednesday, send an email to dpowersking [at] gmail [dot] com, with the subject line: Zombify Me! Contest. In your email, David wants you to tell him three things:
1: The name you will be identified as (example: your first name).
2: A description of yourself—the more detailed you are, the better.
3: How would you like the survivors to put you out of your misery?
Prizes? The winner will be zombified in the pages of My Zombie Summer: Part Two, receive a signed proof of the novel (when it’s ready), and a $20 Barnes and Noble gift card. The runner ups will receive a free ebook of The Undead Road for their Kindle (other platforms TBA).
Thank you for participating, and good luck!
