So how about this? It’s the final proof cover for my upcoming new release Dead Heat. I think it captures the tone and the setting quite well. It is primarily a horror with a massive dose of humour thrown in including pop culture references and satire on the zombie genre.
I’ve also written a blurb so tell me what you think. Is it enticing? Does it make you want to buy it?
Corporate team building days can be fun and when three friends: Jim, Mike and Tony are told this year’s event would be the Dead Heat zombie race, where they would be chased by aspiring actors of mixed talent pretending to be zombies, they thought it would be a laugh and worth it for a day out of the office.But this day off soon turns sour as nobody – not even the organisers – realise that real zombies have gate-crashed the party and it’s not the after-event barbecue and free beer they’re after.Unable to tell the difference between the hammy acting of amateur thesps and real rotting corpses looking to snack on human flesh after hundreds of years of slumber, the three friends must escape the island and definitely, definitely not end up killing any actors on the way.You’ll laugh at the pop culture references, you’ll scream “it’s a real zombie, you idiot!” and you’ll be on the edge of your seat as middle management executives really wish they’d never left the cubicle.
I’ve put myself under pressure now to get it finished, edited and uploaded by early March. If anybody with a Good Reads or Amazon account fancies reviewing and rating it, please drop me an email.
