It all started with an interview at The Penny Dreadful twitter chat, when yours truly ranted about how zombies are dull with all the brain eating and such.
Making short a long wine-filled story, Jim Bronyaur and Jodi MacArthur not only scared the heck out of me with their zombies -- not so dull, no sir -- but they convinced me to give it a try.
So I did, and guess what? My story, Zombie Walk, was published at the cool horror webzine Flashes in the Dark!
When Donald Conrad came up with the idea of a new sub-genre, zombie romance, something clicked in my mind, and #ZombieLuv was born, and so the idea of a contest!
But then the unforgiving Susan H. Gottfried killed me.
(If you like Rock'n Roll you ought to visit her site and read her stuff. She rocks! Oh, wait, I hate her. She's the bad woman who killed me!)
I love writing so much that I came back from the dead -- well, sort of --to keep amusing you. Or annoying. Whatever.
*holds falling finger and attaches it back with sticky tape*
So, here's the deal: I lose more fingers and you get published at Flashes in the Dark!
Plus, you win the bestseller Pride Prejudice and Zombies!
Am I, or am I not a cool undead? heh
Well, if not cool at least I'm cold. No heating being produced in this body; thank you Susan.
oH,,, skorrssy. mOrrre lter?
UPDATE: The Zombie Luv Flash Fic Contest is up! Click here to see the guidelines.
Psst! Follow the #ZombieLuv hashtag on twitter for more tidbits before the official launch of the contest. ;)
Note: The funny-yummy picture up there I found in this chaotic myspace profile, and the rock'n roll #ZombieLuv I found here (which, man, I love already!) but it's shared on photobucked, the place I actually took from.
