Noooo Lady Friend, it's okay. It was just a creme egg. You don't have to She-Hulk the town, even though the green Halloween center is kind of creepy...
(I am making the assumption that Lady Friend's reaction to too much sugar is similar to mine. I am also making the assumption she ate a creepy green Halloween egg. I'm making a lot of assumptions today, and I've only been awake for 13 minutes. Yay!)
Dude, that's EXACTLY what happened. How did you know?!
Many congrats to you on writing the Twilight of zombies books. You must be so proud!
P.S. Stupid trolls are stupid.
Oh, people are free to hate my books as they will. (And wow, some of them really do. I'm glad that I don't read the reviews myself and my beta readers just give me the highlights of them to spare my Delicate Flower Feelings.) The centerpiece in so many zombie books is the gore factor and I wanted to try something different. Some readers like/expect gore in these books and I designed the series to be more contemplative, so you can watch the world gradually fall through the eyes of six teens and their interactions with their families and wider communities. In Book One, the world is struggling with the zombie virus but it hasn't really hit home for a lot of people. The balance tips the other way in Book Two and starts to fall apart faster and faster in Book Three. By Books Four/Five, it turns to absolute chaos where everyone is affected. I wanted this to be more true to life in its tone, not an action-packed thriller with my characters going from regular old high school students to Super Commandos who blast the heads off zombies and save the world. But if you pick up the series expecting what the genre usually contains, you're going to be a sad panda. I tried to make it clear in the book blurb what this series is/isn't, but maybe I should take another look at it.
The Twilight remark just made me laugh because I'd braced myself for that criticism with the simpleminded Earth/Sky. I was caught completely off-guard with the criticism in reference to the Zombies series.
Maybe when these three bozos are done storming Britain to rid the world of evil, they can stop by my house and exorcise my Harry Potter chickens!!! Avada Kedavra had one of her hexing fits this morning that involved so. much. yelling.
Downloaded Zombies a while ago and am just now reading it. Love it, GP! I'm barely resisting the urge to pull it up on my Cloud Reader here at work. "What, this? Oh it's, uh....research! Accounting research, yeah."
