Winter of Zombie 2015 SPOTLIGHT ON: Scott Lefebvre

What is your latest zombie release?
I’m working on a series of novellas that I’m planning on editing together and putting out as one huge book when I’m finished.
I’m calling the overarching project The End Of The World Is Nigh.
http://theendoftheworldisnighbook.blogspot.com/
I have written and published two novellas for the project so far.
The Middle Of Nowhere
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HZNFY2O
Why?
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HZNFY2O

Quick description of it (no spoilers)

I’ve always been a fan of the George A. Romero zombie films.  Sometimes I found myself daydreaming about what happened in the rest of America when the zombie apocalypse happened.  My books are done in that style.

Something unique about it.
I did a crowd-funding campaign offering contributors to buy a spot as a main character in the book.  Each contributor would get their own novella which would be part of the larger story and the plots of the novellas would steer the characters towards each other until they met and journeyed to a common goal.  The plan was to raise enough that I could take some time off work and knock the book out.  I didn’t raise as much as I had hoped and other projects came up so I have postponed working on the series until I get some other projects finished and published, but I look forward to returning to the world of Nigh and completing the project.

His literary tastes were forged by the works of Helen Hoke, Alvin Schwartz and Stephen Gammell, Ray Bradbury, Richard Matheson, Stephen King, Clive Barker, Edgar Allan Poe, and H. P. Lovecraft.

He is the author of Spooky Creepy Long Island, and Condemned; and a contributing author to Forrest J. Ackerman’s Anthology of the Living Dead, Fracas: A Collection of Short Friction, The Call of Lovecraft, and Cashiers du Cinemart.

Spotlight On: Ted Nulty #WinterofZombie

Other side of me cover (2)

Winter of Zombie 2015 SPOTLIGHT ON: Ted Nulty

What is your latest zombie release?

The Other side of me

Quick description of it (no spoilers)

This is book 3 in the ‘Gone Feral’ series.

The story is set in Gulfport Mississippi during the chemical attack which causes the all mammals to turn ‘feral’. The story follows Eland Matthews, a pastor, as the toxin takes ahold of him and turns him into a killing machine. It also follows several groups of survivors who live through the event and what happens when they fall victim to Elands attention.

Something unique about it.

This is not a classic zombie tale in that the ferals are not true zombies, they are not the living dead. However, the story is true to the zombie theme in that the chemical can be spread through a bite, and the hyped up metabolism requires massive damage or a headshot to take out a feral.

Your short Bio.

Ted Nulty graduated from Coronado high school before attending Northern Arizona University on a “Seven year, drink beer” graduation program. Having never received a grade above a ‘C’ in English in high school, his life was changed when his first year English professor got him into creative writing and actually gave him an ‘A’. After serving in the United States Marine Corps, he began a second career in Law Enforcement and then Private security. Having an entrepreneurial streak, Ted has invented several items and started several moderately successful businesses. A lifelong horror and zombie fan, he began writing ‘Gone Feral’ in 2013. Discovering that the best cure for writers block is to have another book in the works to distract him. He began and completed his second book ‘The Locker’ shortly thereafter. He completed ‘Barry’s Walk’ Gone Feral Book II in February of 2013, and is now releasing ‘The Other Side of Me’.

Survival - Rhonda Hopkins

Winter of Zombie 2015 SPOTLIGHT ON: Rhonda Hopkins

What is your latest zombie release?

Survival

Quick description of it (no spoilers)

When Sarah escapes from her brutal abductors, she promises to return to rescue her twin sister, but with the walking dead invading Fort Worth, TX, she is forced to rely on a competitive coworker who made her work life hell for years. With her coworker weakened by cancer treatments, her sister still imprisoned, and zombies looking for an easy meal, Sarah’s only plan, if she can pull it off, is Survival.

Something unique about it.

The main characters are twin sisters with different interests and skill sets. They’re lucky to get set up in a court house with a cafeteria (with a good supply of food and water) and with several sheriff’s deputies. So in the beginning things aren’t as bad for them as it could be. You know – other than being kidnapped and nearly raped in the beginning. In the next book in the series, when the SHTF, it’s really going to hit hard for them.

Survival is actually a short story. I originally wrote it just for a charity anthology. But I loved writing about these characters and zombies (who knew?) so much, I decided to make it a series. Dead of Winter should be out just any time.

Spotlight On: James Dean #Winterof Zombie

This Dying World - James Dean - eBook wBlurb

Winter of Zombie 2015 SPOTLIGHT ON: James Dean

What is your latest zombie release?

 

My latest release is also my first full length release titled “This Dying World: The End Begins”

Quick description of it (no spoilers)

This Dying World: The End Begins is a story of a man, Dan Foster, who is desperately trying to save his family from the newly risen dead.  This story chronicles his family’s journey across the frozen Midwest towards what he hopes to be safety for his loved ones.

 

Dan finds himself surrounded by a diverse group of characters from a good natured but fiery nurse to a tomboy sharpshooter. Although told primarily through Dan’s perspective, readers have the opportunity to go inside the minds of other characters – some good, some not – as they also try to survive the beginnings of the zombie onslaught.

Something unique about it.

Dan is not a superman by any stretch.  Nor is he Rambo, James Bond, or even Homer Simpson for that matter.  He is an everyday guy who you would pass on the street and forget about within a couple steps.  He’s a natural smart ass, and often uses humor to try and diffuse stressful situations.  In most cases, the jokes are inappropriate and poorly timed for his wife, Abby.

This is the story of just a regular guy whose only survival skills come from late night horror movies and pure instinct to protect his family.  Using humor throughout the book despite the dark circumstances makes this story stand out.

Author Bio

James Dean was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1975. He earned his Emergency Medical Technician license, serving for 3 years before returning to school to earn a AAS degree in electronics technology. He has worked in the technology field for 15 years and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.  He currently lives in a suburb of Chicago with his wife and kids.

James has always been interested in writing, penning his first very short story in 4th grade. He’s written several short stories over the years, from horror to sword and sorcery genres. But he gave up writing for several years until he discovered the world of indie authors, thanks to people like Mark Tufo and Eric Shelman. James was once again bitten by the writing bug, which has led to his first full length novel, This Dying World: The End Begins.

TRANSPORT Triptych Cvr Spread_with Text

Winter of Zombie 2015 SPOTLIGHT ON: Peter Welmerink

NAME OF LATEST ZOMBIE RELEASE

TRANSPORT: Uncivil War (Book 3 of the TRANSPORT Series)

QUICK DESCRIPTION

All is not well in the big city of Grand Rapids. Anti-Zombie Loyalists, loyalists of the late William Lettner, have set the city ablaze… Or so thinks the mayor, ruling city council and the military authority. Little do they know, one of their own is responsible for the chaos, planning an overthrow of the city’s leadership, with intentions much like Lettners: eradicate the non-living nuisances, and any of the living who get in the way.

And all is not well for Captain Jacob Billet. Coming out of a 3-month coma, he finds he has changed. Not for the better. With the deceased William Lettner dogging his every move, and knowing his days are numbered, Jake wants to make it to his old homestead before his condition sets him on a different, and very much undesirable path.

SOMETHING UNIQUE ABOUT BOOK SERIES

The series is heavily focused on a massive armored transport, its captain and crew as they venture about a POST-Post Zompocalypse Michigan, USA. The living are still here, trying to rebuild. The undead are still here, some of them protected by law due to their relationship to the large metropolis in which the soldiers are stationed… creating just a bit of tension (sarcasm) with citizens who want all rot cleansed from their homeland.

Winter of Zombie Spotlight On: Justin and Robert Dunne

Latest Zombie Release

Tales of the Nothing Man

Quick Description

 Separate disjointed tales of individuals struggling to overcome their worst fears, become melded together through the appearance of the mysterious Nothing Man. Each individual story is dark, the characters are flawed and scared, the parts come together to become a group that are still in search of the Nothing Man.

This is like nothing You’ve read before, the writing style varies from tale to tale to suit the personality that is being conveyed and it all comes together to form a really unique book that should be a ‘must read’ of any Zombie aficionado, or anyone who wants to see inside the darker side of the human psyche.

Something Unique About it 

Everything about it is different.  This is our first crack at writing.  We have never been ‘taught’ how to write and we don’t know all the ‘rules’, so we had no biased on how we ‘should’ write a book.  We have used different styles to suit different points of view and have hopefully come up with something unique.  Its something that we wrote for maximum enjoyment for ourselves and any potential readers.

Author Bio

Justin and Robert Dunne are Australian twin brothers’ with beautiful wives and children.  Tales of the Nothing Man is their first novel and just the beginning of a writing itch they intend to keep scratching.  They write to keep the voices quiet and to get the stories out of their heads, but most importantly, they write for fun and hope the readers enjoy the journey.
