Most of you will know by now that 2016 has been officially designated YEAR OF THE ZOMBIE by Infected Books – 12 months, 12 original zombie novellas. We kicked things off in style earlier this month with Adam Baker’s well-received KILLCHAIN, and we’re looking forward to launching novella #2 at the beginning of February.
As I’ve mentioned previously, 11 of the 12 slots have already been filled by a host of well-known zombie authors. We’re planning on finding author number 12 by running an exclusive PITCH AND PAGE competition (we want you to sell your story to us by submitting a 25 word pitch and a 250 word first page). I’ll be judging entries alongside respected literary agent Gina Panettieri and head of Voodoo Press, Michael Preissl. The competition will run for 6 months from 6 February and the winner will get the prestigious Halloween slot. We’ve just announced full entry details over at the Infected Books site and if you have any questions, feel free to ask via the dedicated thread on the IB Facebook page.
This is a great opportunity to be a part of a project I’m really excited about. After sharing my zombie stories with you for the last fifteen years, I’m looking forward to you finally getting your revenge and bombarding me with undead nightmares of your own. Good luck!
