REVIVAL Tour: Day 12 - "Truth or Lie" game & Zombies :)


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.


Contest Details:

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?

Four casualties contestants will be chosen on Wednesday, November 25th. The most inventive or interesting entry will be zombified! The other three who are unlucky fortunate enough to survive will be given special honors. Winners will be announced on December 2nd on David’s blog.

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!

I have one week to think of my answers...

Jo said...

Nope, don't want to be zombified. Liked the story though.

Debra Renée Byrd said...

OR did you meet Mohammad Ali while you were jumping off a bridge? Dah well. lol Heading over.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

I made my guess over at Crystal's. It's very difficult to pick something you wouldn't be crazy enough to do. Congrats to David.

David Powers King said...

Thank you, Mark! I really appreciate you squeezing my reveal in during your tour. Best of continued luck with Revival! :)

Crystal Collier said...

Yay for David! And yay for you! *bites into a wedge of cheese* (I know the lie... ;)

Elephant's Child said...

Some days I think I have been zombified already. And that all of my brains have already been consumed, leaving an aching void behind.
Another book to tempt me...
Thank you both.

@Alex: I'm still trying to figure out what day it is...sometimes the Ninja, he speak with forked tongue :)

@Jo: You would be a great zombie killer :)

@Deb: Ha-ha, if *that* happened, it would have been in the news :)

@Susan: What? I'm a perfectly normal person :) [The previous statement has not been verified by the FDA, CDC and lots of other acronym-ic places]

@David: 'Sall good, mate :)

@Crystal: Haha! Save some cheese for me!! (I know, too!!)

@EC: Thank you... and you have such a wonderful mind... I don't ever fear it being empty :)
