Goings on: Undead America style

Hi friends!!

It's been a busy week or two in the world of Undead America, and I have some news/events/goings on to report. So mark your calendars, or do whatever you do to remember dates you want to remember, and feel free to share this info to your friends and family! I'll love it if you do! :-D

(Yes, I just put a smiley face in an official blog post. That's just the kind of girl I am!)

Get ready! Monday, September 23rd, is the Great Cover Reveal for Undead America: No Angels, the sequel to Zombie Days, Campfire Nights! I'm so excited to share this cover with you, you guys! Marion Sipe, the cover artist for both novels, did an amazing job!! I'll post the cover here, and a few of my favorite bloggers will also be posting. Participating blogs/bloggers are (in no particular order): 

Lauren Spieller: Lauren is a super-talented emerging author, literary agent intern, and up-and-coming editor. 

SK Falls: SK is author of bestselling novel World of Shell and Bone, among many, many other cool books.

Jocelyn Rish: Jocelyn is a storyteller and screenwriter. Her short film Saying Goodbye has won awards around the country. 

Shauna Granger: Shauna is the prolific author of the Elemental series, and co-founder of the beautiful Spellbound Scribes blog.

Thank you, ladies, for hosting me, and I can't WAIT for everyone to see this cover!

And EEEEEEEEP!! It seems like everything is coming together, and I'm going to have PRINT COPIES of Undead America: Zombie Days, Campfire Nights, just in time for the second annual rUNdead Charleston 5k Zombie Race on October 26!  The guys at rUNdead have agreed to let me have a table to sell some books and do my first official book signing, so I hope I get to see you there! 

And while there, you can get made up like a zombie, or you can even participate in the race itself. I won't be running this year (I hope to be busy!!), but I did it last year and it was a blast. Seriously. Even if you're not a runner, it's a great chance to get out in the wilderness (well, the wilderness of Wannamaker Park in North Charleston, anyway) and run from some zombies. Soooo fun!

The race itself will benefit Lowcountry Food Bank, with all proceeds going to that amazing cause. If you want to skip the $5 spectator charge, bring at least two non-perishable food items and you can get in for free!

I really, really, REALLY hope to see you there!

And in the meantime, check out the rUNdead blog for some original, short zombie fiction, too! I've had fun playing around over there!


I think that's it, for now, but really...it's enough, right? I'm so excited! Once I have official release dates for the print copy of Zombie Days and the ebook copy of No Angels, I'll let you know. In the meantime, happy zombie day!!!
