How I Overcame Fear and Wrote a Zombie Novel

How I Overcame Fear and Wrote a Zombie Novel

Guest Blogger: Michele Israel Harper I hate zombies. So I decided to write a zombie book. Of course. Candace Marshall and I may not be a whole lot alike, but we share one thing glaringly in common. We both hate zombies. Thankfully, I wrote her, and thankfully, she has to deal with the zombies, not […]

Maybe it’s our culture that’s undead

Maybe it’s our culture that’s undead

The zombie phenomenon must be at the saturation point. Sprint now has a spokezombie. I hope that this signals the near end of the zombie fad, because I’ve had just about all I can stand of the undead. The fascination with zombies and vampires has eluded me. I mean, I really don’t get the celebration […]

Write what you love

Write what you love

I’ve always laughed when people say that Speculative Fiction won’t sell in the Christian market. If they mean it doesn’t sell in Christian bookstores, I get that. Very few people go looking for Speculative Fiction in a Christian bookstore. However, tons of Christians I know read Speculative stories. And I don’t think I need to […]

There’ll Be No Zombies Here

How many of you have ever watched the zombie movie where the little girl has been bitten and her mom and dad keep her in hopes that she may not turn into a ravenous brain eater? I can’t remember exactly which Night of the Living Dead it was but it was probably early 80’s. Anyhoo, […]

Questioning Use of Multiple Person Point of View

I am 19k into the story and saw a perfect place to stop and switch from the boyfriend to the separated girlfriend’s POV. I’ve really enjoyed using the first person POV for the guy’s […]

Would a Loving God Allow a Zombie Apocalypse?

“I don’t believe in God,” she said, her eyes searching his. “I haven’t for quite some time. Not with the world the way it is. God can’t possibly exist. He wouldn’t have let all this happen.” Scott, Angela (2012-03-18). Wanted: Dead or Undead (Kindle Locations 3355-3357). Evolved Publishing. Kindle Edition. In this book, the zombie […]

A Disposable World

Imagine if you will a land in which once you tired of something you could just throw it away. Don’t worry about waste piles, everyone does it and why should you be any different? Shiny, new things are the best because So-in-so and Whos-a-ma-call-it said so, and everything in this world caters to you having […]

The Lure of a New Series

The Lure of a New Series

[/caption] Today’s writing regimen was fun and exciting, and yet on the fringe was a hollow feeling that I was going against proven advice: don’t let the temptation of the new project keep you from finishing your current project. I am currently 66k into the rewrite of my Science Fiction novel, Kaimerus Deception. I made […]
