The Dead of Penderghast Manor

 TheDeadOfPenderghastManor_JulianneSnow_FinalCover

Quick description of it (no spoilers)

What would you do if you knew the Dead could talk?

For Chester Penderghast, it’s not the easiest of questions to answer…

Ensconced in the basement of his family’s mortuary business is the last place he wants to be, but when the conversation starts flowing, Chester’s the only living person who can hear it. What do the Dead want, and why is he the only one who can hear them?

This is not your average zombie tale—the Dead don’t want to eat your brains, but they will chew your ear off!

Something unique about it.

The dead aren’t your typical Undead – I like to play within the genre sometimes and this is the product of my twisted and sometimes humourous mind.

Summer of Zombie 2015 SPOTLIGHT ON: Eli Constant & B.V. Barr

What is your latest zombie release?

Z Children: Awakening

 Z Children 1 Cover eBook

Quick description of it (no spoilers):

This book chronicles the beginning of a zombie outbreak as told through the eyes of six main characters in Texas. These first person POV origin stories are the vehicle to creating two distinct survival groups that will be carried forward throughout the next several books. We’ve also included secondary characters, presented in 3rd person omniscient to create distance between said characters and the readers, which will become increasingly important as the world of the Z Children builds. The outbreak premise of our storyline centers around the ever-changing climate of world health, particularly focusing on the vaccination schedule prescribed by the CDC and the quality-control associated with said commonly administered vaccines. Although there is gore, and plenty of it, we’ve prioritized character development and human interest.

Something unique about it:

We feel that there are a few things that make Z Children: Awakening stand out in the growing bookshelf of zombie books. Firstly, focusing on children as the primary villain during an apocalypse presents particular changes in how an uninfected may choose to respond. A grown person fighting a grown zombie might experience little hesitation in killing to survive, but a grown person versus a small, blonde child might think twice before pulling the trigger- a delay that could cost the person’s life. We also have brought the issues of family pets and loyal dogs front and center- creating an owner and dog pair that survives together, displaying how a well-trained dog of the right breed can provide not only companionship, but also defensive help. Lastly, among other things, having the expertise of a retired USAF SERE instructor at our beck and call to create probable scenarios and human (trained and untrained) responses means that the book brings realism to a higher level- everything from foraging, to weapon choice, to PTSD at the end of the world.

What is your latest zombie release?  

My last zombie release was Z-Burbia 5: The Bleeding Heartland. But, since it is a sequel, I am going to talk about the first in the series, Z-Burbia!

Zburbia_ebook_cover

Quick description of it (no spoilers)

Whispering Pines is a classic, quiet, private American subdivision on the edge of Asheville, NC, set in the pristine Blue Ridge Mountains. Which is good since the zombie apocalypse has come to Western North Carolina and really put suburban living to the test!

Surrounded by a sea of the undead, the residents of Whispering Pines have adapted their bucolic life of block parties to scavenging parties, common area groundskeeping to immediate area warfare, neighborhood beautification to neighborhood fortification.

But, even in the best of times, suburban living has its ups and downs what with nosy neighbors, a strict Home Owners’ Association, and a property management company that believes the words “strict interpretation” are holy words when applied to the HOA covenants. Now with the zombie apocalypse upon them even those innocuous, daily irritations quickly become dramatic struggles for personal identity, family security, and straight up survival.

Welcome to normal life in Z-Burbia!

Something unique about it.

The humor. There are plenty of zombie novels out there that go for the desolate, violent, post-apocalyptic take on the zombie genre. With Z-Burbia, I went back to the source, straight to Romero, and channeled his satiric look on American society. Instead of consumerism, I tackle conformity. Specifically, the American Suburb! But, don’t get me wrong, there is PLENTY of violence, gore, and terror in this puppy.
