This Sunday, January 27, is Zombie Apocalypse Day right here in my neighborhood of Ballard (in North Seattle for the non Puget-Sounders among you). It's a free, family-friendly disaster preparedness expo at the Ballard Community Center from noon to 6 pm, and I'll be there selling books (and signing them, for any of you who've been holding on to your copy just waiting to get my autograph YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE).

I'll also be reading from Zombocalypse Now at 4 pm, and we'll be doing the choices by audience vote, so come help us navigate our stuffed bunny to safe ground. Seriously, I'm super worried that no one will come to my reading, so I'd be overjoyed to see you there!
