It's here! It's here it's here it's here it's here, and I get to share it with you!
Confessions of the Very First Zombie Slayer (That I Know of) finally has a shiny new cover to go with its upcoming, independent re-release!
Drum roll, please...
Oh yes, and it's also now available for pre-order from Smashwords, release planned for April 4th, 2017.
If you don't do Smashwords, not to worry, pre-orders are coming soon to all platforms, including paperback.
Stand by for cover reveal and release announcements for The Prospero Chronicles soon as well (yes, including a cover and release date for the long-delayed third installment), but for now, in case you missed it in its previous run, here's the teaser for Confessions of the Very First Zombie Slayer (That I Know of):
The world is Cassie Fremont’s playground. Her face is on the cover of every newspaper. She has no homework, no curfew, and no credit limit, and she spends her days traveling the country with her friends, including a boy who would do the chicken dance with death to make her smile. Life is just about perfect—except that those newspaper headlines are about her bludgeoning her crush to death with a paintball gun, she has to fight ravenous walking corpses every time she steps outside, and one of her friends is still missing, trapped somewhere in the distant, practically impassable wreckage of Manhattan.
Still, Cassie’s an optimist, more prone to hysterical laughter than hysterical tears, and she’d rather fight a corpse than be one. She’ll never leave a friend stranded when she can simply take her road trip to impossible new places, even if getting there means admitting to that boy that she might love him as more than her personal jester. Skillfully blending effective horror with unexpected humor, this diary-style novel is a fast-paced and heartwarming read.
“Heartbreak, humor, a very large number of crushed skulls and even romance ensue . . . . Readers who don’t mind a little brain spatter on the windshield will be happy they took this particular trip.” --Kirkus Reviews.
“You know when you read a book about teens and you think the author just didn’t get it? Well, F.J.R. Titchenell gets video gaming, paintballing, Vespa riding, teenage tomboy angst, true love, the uses of theater paint—oh, and killing zombies.” —Lehua Parker, author of the Nene Award-nominated Niuhi Shark Saga.
“The story is fast, filled with dark humor, and lots of blood and guts.” --All Things Urban Fantasy.
So, feel like claiming your copy on Smashwords now?
Seriously, this announcement comes with a huge thanks to everyone who's helped support Matt's and my transition into independently re-releasing these books, and to everyone who's waited patiently for news of new printings.
This is real!
Also big thanks to Deranged Doctor Design for their great work :)
