My Zombie Series
By Rebecca Besser
When most people hear the word zombie when relating to books or movies, they automatically get mental images of hordes of puss bags with their claw-tipped hands outstretched toward their desired meal. The reason this happens is because that’s the norm for zombies. I, personally, have read book after book and have seen movie after movie with scenes where zombies attack people en masse.
Even though I have written stories with those scenes myself, I hate seeing it so often. I hate getting excited about a book and then when I start reading it, I realize the plot is the same old thing that I’ve read many times previous.
When I wrote Undead Drive-Thu I wanted to give zombie readers something fresh, new, and different. I didn’t want it to be the norm. I wanted readers to pick up the book because they loved zombies and get excited about something unique that still involved the monster they love.
I put only one zombie in the story – a zombie with no explanation. No, I don’t tell you where it happened or why (that’s in the sequel – Undead Regeneration – and the soon to be written prequel – Undead Origins).
The wife of the zombie refuses to see that her husband is so changed that he’s not human anymore. She vows to keep the…er, zombie alive because she loves him.
Then I add in a bunch of characters that are just going about normal life in a modern day setting.
No, there’s no apocalypse. There’s just one brain-loving zombie in a world of people. What could go wrong?
Everything can go wrong, and I make sure everything does go wrong.
The survivors of Undead Drive-Thru go on living their lives in Undead Regeneration.
After the nightmare they lived through in Undead Drive-Thru, they have issues that need to be dealt with. So, what do they do? They decide to go undercover at the bio-engineering company believed to be the reason for the zombie from Undead Drive-Thru – ReGen.
Yes, there is more than one zombie in Undead Regeneration, but there’s still not the cliché horde cornering screaming pedestrians to rip them apart.
As always, with knowledge comes danger. And the characters face a lot of danger as they struggle to handle life, love, and chasing their dream of a future. They just want to remain human and be happy. Is that so wrong?
The problem is that they might not be able to do so. Things happen that could end everything…and the things that happen involve a zombie and a mad scientist!
I hope you’ll give my zombies a chance.
They’re waiting to tear into your brains through the pages of my books!
