Finally! Zombie Book Published! Well Almost. (That Wasn’t Fast…At All)

5 Nov

The Zombie Survival Crew* is an enthusiast blog showcasing different recipes that are not only tasty, but help you lose weight as well. The meatloaf a la king is one of my favorites.

Ok, not quite. Pretty much the title of the group says it all: Zombie Survival Crew.


There are a couple big names associated with ZSC, some guys from The Walking Dead, some guys from True Blood, the guy who plays Candyman…some others.

So the ZSC crew teaches you how to survive a zombie apocalypse through their website, selling merchandise, and events. Some of the people in the ZSC have ranks like First Lieutenant, General, and Captain…

I don’t have a rank.

Or I might be ranked…something like: Dish Room Attendant. I don’t know for sure. They handed me a scrub brush and a hairnet when I joined.

But I am a member of the Red Brigade! Whoo hoo! I don’t know what the different brigade colors mean, but I think Red Brigade sounds important.

And I’m getting published in their second anthology, finally being released on December 1st!

The book will be filled with zombie stories, poetry, and art. A great Christmas present for your 4 year old…or Grandpa.

Of the two press releases I have seen, I’m actually listed in them!

Whoever highlighted my name, thank you.**

Even though I was last,  at least I made it above the “many others” line.

I hope I get to meet Michael Rooker because of this…

I probably won’t, but I think I should.

This is the cover of the book:

It’s nice. A little busier than I like, but it’s not my publishing endeavor, so you know…

Well, now that we are talking about it…I do have a few suggestions.

Even though this is a compilation piece, might I suggest this:

Pretty good! What do you think?

You know what…

It might be a good idea to include the celebrities*** that are involved with the project. It’s easier to sell stuff with celebrity names attached.

Much Better

But one other thing…

The picture.

It’s pretty cool, but I had another idea in mind.

Awesome cover!

If you want to buy the book with the real cover, you can check it out HERE.

*We will call it ZSC for short. (Which makes sense, right?)

    Chris, you know if they ship outside the US?
    I looked for info on the website but I saw nothing, when you click to pre-order, it does says something about shipping but it doesn’t disclose more info.

    Very cool, congratulations again!

    HaHa. Creepy. (My story is a little funny of course)

    I have just realized that my brain has a similar reaction to zombies and advanced algebra. In an effort to insure that neither shows up in earnest on my doorstep, I gaze off into the sky. It’s me, it’s not you.

        I just slipped into a coma.

        All is not lost! I just made the connection between the comatose and the undead!
        But not algebra. . .

    Congratulations, Christopher! So glad you made the cut of names worth mentioning, and you didn’t have to be an “other.” Looking forward to it.

    Yay! My grandad would LOVE this! I think, though, that you have a future career in book cover design.

    We’ve got a published author in the house! Will you remember us when you get super famous?

  8. The Bumble Files November 6, 2012 at 12:42 AM #

    Awesome, Chris! Congrats!! You’re the zombie expert now. I’ll be sure to read it for the coming apocalypse.

    Congratulations on not being “and many more!” Seriously though, that’s awesome. Is it only in print or do they do e-books too? I’ll get the print one is that’s all that’s available, but it’ll just take a bit longer to get to me over here.

    • Christopher De Voss November 6, 2012 at 7:06 AM #

      They do both. I’ll see if I can get a “friends and family” discount.

      • David Stewart November 6, 2012 at 7:32 AM #

        Yes, what’s the “mooching blogger” discount rate?

      • Christopher De Voss November 6, 2012 at 7:39 AM #

        I think it’s where we trade books.

    This is a super exciting honor! Congrats!!

  11. aliceatwonderland November 6, 2012 at 10:03 AM #

    So is this a print book or an e book or both? And where is the ordering info? I got confused on the website. Anyway – this is the second blogger I know who is published. Very cool.

  12. GiggsMcGill Jill November 6, 2012 at 1:07 PM #

    Congratulations sir! And that’s super awesome that you were mentioned – I bet many people weren’t! Which makes you extra-special 🙂

    • Christopher De Voss November 6, 2012 at 1:12 PM #

      Truthfully only one person wasn’t mentioned. But nobody mentions him. 😉

      • GiggsMcGill Jill November 6, 2012 at 1:15 PM #

        Well see?? You weren’t that one guy! Props! ^.^

  13. becca3416 November 6, 2012 at 2:24 PM #

    You are scaring me, but I think that’s kind of the point.

  14. stuffitellmysister November 6, 2012 at 3:38 PM #

    Awesome and congrats! ( I do prefer you cover selections 🙂 )

  15. artclubblog November 6, 2012 at 11:07 PM #

    Those letters are so fabulously cool! Good luck with the book.

  16. Zen A. November 7, 2012 at 4:36 AM #

    Congratulations! That’s pretty exciting. It must be great seeing your name along so many cool people. =D

  17. Sword-chinned bitch November 7, 2012 at 8:27 PM #

    I came back to say congratulations! This is an accomplishment for someone who says he isn’t really a writer. Well, I think you are!

    Hello fellow Red Brigader and soon-to-be-published-in-the-Anthology author. I’m in the book, too. Come to a con and I promise you can meet Michael Rooker 🙂
