SPOTLIGHT ON: Brent Abell

 

What is the title of your story in Still Dying 2?

“The Happiest Kingdom on Earth”

 

Quick description of it (no spoilers)

Two men trying to stay alive in a zombie ravaged world find a group of survivors who have taken refuge in Florida’s premiere tourist attraction and find out how high the price of admission can be to stay in the “Happiest Kingdom on Earth”.

 

Something unique about it.   

When the chance to write a story set in the “Dying Days” world came about, I jumped at it immediately.  The story idea wasn’t as easy.  Originally, the main character George was in a different part of Florida protecting a small group he’d come across.  Once I got into the story, it felt stale and I stepped back and re-evaluated what I was doing.  I am a huge fan of that magical land in central Florida and I came up with the idea that a group would use someplace like that to form a new community or society.  In the end, I really just wanted to talk about zombies in furry animal suits…

What is the title of your story in Still Dying 2?

The Old Man and the Apocalypse

 

Quick description of it (no spoilers)

He just wanted to live out the rest of his days in peace. With the walking dead stumbling around his retirement community, it wasn’t too easy to do that, but he’d managed. An unexpected visitor reminds him, though, that sometimes life isn’t just about waiting to die. 

 

Something unique about it.

It’s not your usual shoot-‘em-in-the-head-and-run-to-a-new-safe-place zombie story, featuring a character demographic you don’t see too often in zombie stories. Seriously…who writes a zombie story about an 80-year-old man with bum knees and a heart condition?

New Box Set3

Epic Apocalypse Boxed Set 

Welcome to the Apocalypse 

Tis’ the season for all things that go bump in the night. Today’s top selling horror authors bring to you this boxed set of five full length apocalyptic tales and a teaser from award winning author Joe McKinney. Turn the lights off, enjoy the ride and find out what is lurking under your bed. 

Mark Tufo – Zombie Fallout 
“Working as both straight up survival fiction and comedy, Mark Tufo’s FALLOUT is a gory, laugh out loud tale of a community of heroes, cowards and misfits struggling against zombies. Tufo’s unlikely hero is one of the funniest and most endearing characters I’ve seen in zombie fiction.” – Craig DiLouie, author of TOOTH AND NAIL and THE INFECTION 

Heath Stallcup – Return Of The Phoenix 
Stallcup’s debut is a fun, rollercoaster ride of a story, and easily the best that I’ve read all year. It’s part military fiction, part horror, with elements of fantasy and science fiction thrown in the mix. Yet somehow, this novel has the stark realism and well-researched detail you would expect to find in nonfiction. The author’s vivid characters and comfortable writing style left me believing in all the things that go bump in the night and more importantly, in the men and women who hunt them down! – Jaye H 

John O’Brien – A New World: Chaos 
Once I picked up this novel and began reading I could not put it down. The characters are well developed and the story is filled with edge-of-your-seat action. I dare you to pick up a copy and read it. – Troy D 

Armand Rosamilia – Darlene Bobich: Zombie Killer 
Upon finishing this book, I asked myself “What makes this one different from all the others I’ve read?”. I’m here to tell you just that. Armand is meticulously descriptive, his characters are colorful & he doesn’t fail to leave out any gory zombie details. His zombies are still creepily human, with desires beyond eating brains. Darlene is loveable, strong, & heroic, while being fragile & very female at the same time. I found myself holding my breath more than once, wondering what was waiting around the proverbial corner for our little band of survivors. The end is surprising, & leaves you craving more. A wonderful, entertaining read. I’m a fan for life!! – Susan M 

Joe McKinney – Dead Wait Teaser from Bram Stoker Award winning author 
“One of those rare books that starts fast and never ever lets up. . . a rollercoaster ride of action, violence and zombie horror.” –Bram Stoker Award-winning author Jonathan Maberry on Dead City 
“Gritty suspense. . .You’re gonna like this guy.” –Tom Monteleone 
“A rising star on the horror scene.”–Fearnet.com 

Shawn Chesser – Trudge: Surviving The Zombie Apocalypse 
Author Shawn Chesser has written a zombie story full of scares, excitement, sadness and kick-butt action. Unlike other authors, even some of the big names, Chesser understands female character as well as male. This is such an important thing in a book with strong characters that are of both sex. I would recommend this book to all zombie fans, it’s a good one. – examiner 

James Cook- No Easy Hope: Surviving The Dead 
I absolutely adored this book! The storyline and the characters kept my interest and I couldn’t put it down! This has to be in the top five of my favorite zombie books so far. For those that love zombie stories this is a must read! – G. Atkinson

Should A Horror Author Scare Themselves?

Julianne Snow

 Julianne Snow

To write? Or not to write? That really isn’t a question for me. I have to write. It’s a feeling that consumes me. There are times when I should be sleeping or catching up with friends… Where can you find me instead? Either furiously typing on my computer or at my desk, scribbling out a story longhand.

There are always those tales that end up being tedious to get out. You start off with a great idea, only to have it disintegrate as you lay the words down.

Others come together so beautifully that you sit back and wonder where a particular phrase came from. Sometimes you are just able to hit the emotions and imagery on the head and it reads exactly how you saw it happening in your mind.

There is an interesting facet of writing that deserves some consideration – how does an author write stellar horror without scaring themselves? How do they evoke the reactions of fear and unease without falling victim to their own words?

I’d bet there are authors out there writing in the genre that would maintain they are immune to their own words. I can’t help but wonder if that is a good thing – how can you hope to scare, to evoke feeling, if you cannot even scare yourself?

It’s a benchmark that I strive to attain each and every time I craft a story. I know that I’ve hit the mark when I can sit back and let the shudder course through my body or feel that tingle of fear run up my spine. Emotion is a universal concept; we all feel. Injecting your writing with emotion is the best way, in my experience as both a writer and as a reader, to engage your audience.

As I write each of the books in my Days with the Undead series there are times when I genuinely have to sit back and take a break. The living dead are some of the most sinister monsters that anyone can imagine – when you look into their slack faces what is it that stares back at you?

A reflection of humanity’s demise.

Now, add any situation that could likely arise during the Apocalypse. Car crashes, extreme weather, the death of the loved one. In some cases, it’s the element of surprise that gets you; and in others, the gentle, sustained build of tension and fright that makes it hard to swallow.

If I were being honest, I want all my readers to feel the same emotions I do as I write. I want the tense moments to quicken your desire to devour my words. I want each page turned to make you pause for a moment, if only just to catch your breath before the next scene. When you are finished reading a scene in its entirety, I want it to stick with you for long moments after; to take up residence in your psyche and for you to mention it at the oddest moment in unrelated conversation. I want to take the things that you think are unimaginable in the horror realm and creep you out to the utmost level. Those are the emotions that I want you to feel, but I don’t want to simply do it in the most graphic way. Simplicity and subtlety are the tools that I prefer to use. That, and just a little touch of poignant creepiness. When you read my words, I want you to feel uneasy, the same way I did while writing them.

Jon Bon Jovi Helping Me Out

I asked my good friend Jon Bon Jovi not to do this, but he insisted… besides, I wrote most of their hit songs and was the inspiration for “Livin’ On A Prayer”… and if it wasn’t for me the song would’ve been called “Good Medicine”… so I guess he owes me…

Oh, so listen to JBJ and go to
