Zombie Apocalypse, Oh No!

Posted on December 10, 2015 at 7:10 PM

Dec. 2015 Welcome to my new website. My thanks to my daughter April, for all her hard work setting this project in motion.

Back in Sept. I attended the Columbus, Ohio Comic Con. I had great hopes for huge sales, with the rerelease of my post-apocalyptic thriller, Random Survival series. When I attended last year, book two, The Long Search For Home, had just been released, but was not yet available in print. So, this year, with both books in hand and great new covers, coupled with the facts that this genre remains very hot and many of the special guests were from The Walking Dead, I figured it was a can't miss opportunity for me to get books in the hands of new readers. A no-brainer, right?

Well, horse manure. 

Imagine my dismay when young attendees picked up my awesome book and said things like "Post-apocalyptic, that's my favorite," or "I love post-apocalyptic," only to follow up each sentence with, "Does it have zombies?"


"Ah, no, this is like Walking Dead without the zombies," I'd reply. The books got replaced on my table and the potential readers would slink away. One said, "Well then, it's not like Walkig Dead then, is it?"

When I mentioned this afterward to my son, Jon, he said, "Well, then why don't you write one with zombies?"

As a lark, I decided to do just that, even though I swore I'd never write a zombie story. I figured I'd do a quick 20,000 words and be done. But to my surprise I started really getting into it. Almost 70, 000 words later, the zombie epic, Tower of the Dead, is now complete. Now, if I can only find a publisher still putting zombie classic literature out, I'll be all set.

I guess that proves, like Sean Connery doing James Bond again, Never Say Never Again. After all, I hadn't planned on writing a young-adult fantasy, nor did I set about writing paranormal thrillers, but I did. However, the one thing I will never write is romance. Unh-uh! No way! No how!


I just got an idea for a story. I gotta go write it down before I forget it. See you next month.
