Between seasons.

With season 3 of The Walking Dead over, how will you keep the zombies biting until season 4? Here is one idea…

**** Easily Entertaining

If you are a fan of the Walking Dead (graphic novel and/or AMC television series), chances are high that you will thoroughly enjoy Dan Waltz's, Viral Bound. Unlike Dead, Waltz provides a reason for the zombie outbreak, but it's unclear at first to the average reader. The quickness of the outbreak is realistically tragic. It reminded me of films such as 1995's Outbreak, and the more recently, Contagion, which both illustrate the severity of pathogens and air borne viruses. Likewise Waltz respectfully crosses the Dead line by placing his readers in situations where the television series has only shown us with the character Sophia. Many of Waltz's situations involve children who have turned; including a scene where Steve, our adult protagonist, stumbles upon an entire school that has been afflicted. What happens to the still-human children on the bus is almost more tragic that what has happened to all the children who were not able to escape the lockdown of their safe, secure school. These images resonate with this reader who tends to read nightly before bed. Overall this novel is a captivating read for any fan who enjoys the flesh-eaters known only as 'zoms' in Waltz's tale.

Support Local Authors!


"March is reading month. Pick a local author near you, buy their book and read it! It will be good for everyone." ~ Dan Waltz.

This was a recent post of mine on Facebook a couple days ago, and it brought the attention of this response from Carrie Shay. "We should make this a movement."

Followed by another post "Where can we find Michigan authors, I only know of two." ~ Lisa Jacobson.  I was one of the authors she knew. What more could she have needed?  LOL

I gave Lisa's question some thought and came up with an idea, hence a group called "Support Michigan Authors" was born.

What better day to start this group than National Book Day, 2013 (March 7th, 2013).

This is an open group for both readers and authors who want to support Michigan authors.

There is a lot of good books out there and this Facebook "group" will be one way to bring to the readers what Michigan has to offer. 

It's going to take a while to get this group going full speed, but I would appreciate your support in the process. If you are a reader who wants to read and support local, Michigan authors I urge you to join the group and stand by. You're in for a treat.

If you know of any Michigan authors or book illustrators, please by all means, invite them to join in and post their books, book reviews, events and book trailers. Anything books, Michigan grown goes.

Thanks in advance for your continued support.  https://www.facebook.com/groups/315421495248028/

I was diagnosed with cancer just hours before rumors of a cure began circling the globe. Like me, most people were skeptical, while others thanked their lucky stars for such fantastic news. Then, strange things began happening, like thousands of birds falling from the skies and fish going belly-up for no reason. People assumed foul play, but that was quickly dismissed. A secret society with government backing lurked in the shadows while a virus was born. It spread wildly across the planet, unleashing the dead to walk among us. This is when my living nightmare began, and life as I knew it changed forever.

This zombie tale will make you believe... it's possible.,~By Beau Sisson 
Just finished the book. With all of the modern day distractions, it's been awhile since I've taken time to read a book in one session. This was one of those rare stories that pulled me in on page one and kept me there until the end. I highly recommend this book!
