The final stop in the AiZ 2012 Virtual Tour for Joshua’s Complete Saga of Alice in Zombieland! My review!
AiZ: Alice in Zombieland Synopsis
AiZ: Alice in Zombieland’ takes place in a world that is much like our own. The sky and water are blue just as the grass is green. Every day, people are going about their business, most just trying to make ends meet. Politicians still get on the television and lie to cameras and the good people of the world.
This world has one stark difference from our own – the living, and talking, dead. This is not an apocalyptic scene of destruction and despair (yet!), but hope for the living is dwindling with every waking moment.
Nowhere does it say that just because the horde is at the door you do not need to not be ready to be healthy. This is a baby head of Romaine, well the core of a VERY healthy head of lettuce that fell off my plate this week and landed JUST exactly like this.
How could I not see it as a sign! Eat healthy now, or be fast food for the horde later… your choice.

Josh Cook talks Zombies to the Cabin Goddess (AiZ Blog Tour 2012 with an Interview & Giveaway)
Today I am having Joshua Cook here at the Cabin (I am also reviewing the book at the end of the tour, August 1st) during his AiZ: Alice in Zombieland (Zombie ACRES) Blog Tour 2012 promoting the Complete AiZ Saga being released!Josh because he really is a pretty amazing guy. He currently hails from Seattle likes zombies, writes about zombies, used to be from Wisconsin (one of my favorite states which is home of Robert’s Frozen Custard, Miller Beer, the Packers and CHEESE but who cares about the beer or the football team). SO because he is THE BOMB he agreed to swap so I could do a proper job with his review on August 1st here at Cabin Goddess and give me one heck of an interview.
I really hope you read it all, the giveaway has a fun little game/challenge that gets you an extra 25 points in the Rafflecopter and also can be used later when the time comes to grab a bag and get out of dodge because the horde is coming!
Cabin Goddess: First tell us a little about yourself! What won’t we read in your author bio?
Joshua Cook: I’m a pop culture fanatic. I have always been obsessed with all things pop culture, which is not a fact I tend to hide. What I don’t talk about often is how I almost got the chance to prove my pop culture awesomeness on television.
In 2007, VH1 was having tryouts for their second season of The World Series of Pop Culture. A couple friends and I put together a team – Slow Children at Play – and headed down to Chicago to tryout. Step one was a timed, written test. In order for a team to pass, each member had to have a passing score. Out of more than twenty teams, only three advanced past this round – one of those teams being Slow Children at Play.
Well, yes this is suppose to a Sunday Shorts post, I know… please forgive me as I take a week off, you are all welcome to go peruse the shelf over at the Goodreads Group where we have TONS of links to great shorts! But I just got my wonderful man back after he was gone for nearly a full week. I wrapped up the week with a grand total of 17 posts! (16 of which were zombie related). I cannot thank you all enough for making it one of the most exciting weeks of my blogging career! What a way to swing it during my Blogaversary Month! YOWZAA *clapping* I think I am going to do this Zombiepalooza each year me thinks!
For now, I am going to share a few photos..
Hi Kriss, thank you for the opportunity to post a guest blog the following flash fiction piece is something I’ve been messing with, it is BEFORE the zombies amble into the Talbot’s lives. For those who have read my books this will make perfect sense for those who have not this is just a small precursor to my series, I hope you enjoy it!
Day One Sucks
Did day one of the zombie apocalypse suck? Sure it did, I had to wake up at 5:15 in the morning on a cold December day to go and work on pot holes for the city. My back was aching , and I had finally rid myself of the bone chilling cold from the night before and I was about to subject my body too it again. Tracy was in the kitchen making some coffee and toast, she knew me well. Coffee was about the only thing that I could stomach in the morning but if I went out with just that I would end up with coffee gut, that hollowness that burns through your stomach.
Writing A New World Series – A Zombie Week exclusive from John O’Brien
The series started a series of daydreams/scenario visualizations I’ve had for the past several years. The thoughts were more from a survival perspective as opposed to a world infested with zombies. And for me, the post-apocalyptic world represented the ultimate survival situation. I’ve thought about survival in many aspects; more of creating scenarios and the “what would I do” type of thing. The addition of zombies, or night runners in my case, was a way of throwing an added threat into the scenarios.
The books are a culmination of various scenarios and experiences. My son actually introduced me into the world of zombies. I mean, I’ve watched the mainstream of movies that came on from time to time, but he initiated into the realm of the print zombie world with the, “You have to read this.” I was hooked.
I’m a zombie.
You’re going to be a zombie.
They’re going to be zombies, too … they just don’t know it yet.
So, you say you’re a zombie, or rather, know that that’s the path that you’re going to treading for the future of your life. Well, have no fear; you’ve got another zombie near! And I’m here to help you transition to that state of deader living.
We here at the Zombie Institute of Advanced Social Interaction and Deadification (ZIASID) are always glad to add more souls to our growing ranks. We know that life is tough sometimes (ok, most times) and that our wonderful zombie way of being is beginning to gain a broader and more horrific appeal across today’s social constructs.
The Treehouse by Julianne Snow
It walked with a sickening limp. The accompanying noise was akin to the grinding of teeth, only louder. Much louder. It was a sound that reverberated inside your head, warning you of its imminent appearance.
A voice snaked out of the darkness at me. “It’s comin’ this way!”
It was Billy. Stupid Billy.
“Shhhh! It’s gonna hear you!”
The response was barely above a whisper. Too quiet for poor Billy to hear and likely too intelligent for him to understand.
The grinding noise seemed to get closer. Out of the corner of my eye I could
Summer of Zombie Blog Tour Interview with Dave Jeffery and John O’Brien
Kriss Morton was kind enough to host two of the zombie authors on the tour, and they couldn’t be happier.
Dave Jeffery and John O’Brien answered a few pressing questions from Kriss for your enjoyment.
CG: As with you, so many people are interested in Zombies these days. Why do you think that is?
Dave Jeffery: My personal view is that people have a fascination with the end of the world. It’s easy to think of once vastly
The Becoming – a tale of the survivors amidst the outbreak
In honor of Zombie Week the Cabin Goddess and Innovative Online Book Tours Present:
Brandt Evans’s scuffed black combat boots struck the wet pavement heavily as he ran down the rain-dampened street. His heart hammered wildly against his ribs, as if it were trying to beat free from his chest. His breathing was loud and harsh. His hands sweated and shook uncontrollably. His whole body was on edge.
He had been running for over half an hour.
