I'm on the Meet the Author podcast today at Booklending.com! I'm almost afraid to listen to it -- since I was on about three kinds of cold medicine last week when it was recorded -- but it was a lot of fun to do and hopefully I make at least a little sense. The conversation ranged from Zombocalypse Now and upcoming Chooseomatic Books to indie authors and the rapidly changing landscape of the publishing industry. If you're a Kindle owner, by the way, definitely check out Booklending.com -- I did a post on it last month (when it was still called the Kindle Lending Club). Amazon lets you lend each e-book once, to any human being in the world with a Kindle, and booklending.com is where to go to find people who want to borrow yours and lend you theirs. Awesoemsauce!

Rebuild is a sweet, free flash game where you reclaim a city from the zombie hordes, block by block. I've been playing for a couple of hours (yeah, you heard me) and Tacoma is almost free of the undead plague! I'm not going to lie to you: I am PRETTY GOOD at the zombie apocalypse.

As you can imagine, a zombie-themed choose-your-own-adventure for adults and teens isn't really the easiest book to categorize. Amazon currently allows ebooks to be listed under two of their book categories (which are sort of loosely based on the industry standard BISAC codes), but I could never even find one where I thought Zombocalypse Now truly fit. I originally stuck it in and Fiction/Horror/Occult, since that's where I saw some other zombie books, and Fiction/Humor, because, you know, it's not exactly World War Z. But the humor category seemed like a bit of a ghost town, so I figured I'd experiment with marketing it as Young Adult and see what happened...

I've got a new post up at ftE today, in which I wax poetic about a 5-year-old Nintedo DS game. So, you know. Enjoy that.

I just spotted this nice little writeup of Zombocalypse Now on a blog called Vamps R Us. Apparentyly, zombies R them occasionally as well, because they sure seemed to get a kick out of the book:

Do you remember the "choose your own adventure" books from way, way back in the day? Those books that let you have a hand in the fate of the hero/heroine of the story, all by choosing which paths he or she takes. If the thought of these fantastic childhood pleasures makes you sentimental, you are so in luck. I've just learned of the most awesome choose your own adventure of all time.

Oh, that's right. It's a zombie choose your own adventure. With 112 different possible endings! At least 7 of which guarantee you won't die! And who are the "you" in this equation? You are a are an adorable, stuffed pink bunny with murderous intentions and a healthy aura of kick-ass.
Thanks, Lily! And if you like sexy paranormal vampire fun, be sure to check the blog out (it warned me that I might be exposed to adult situations when I first showed up, but it that did not deter me).
