I thought yesterday's comment about zombies would get your attention. Here's the scoop:
A member of our Raintree Writers critique group, Brian Kaufman, has just released his new novel, Dead Beyond the Fence: A Novel of the Zombie Apocalypse. That's Brian over there on the left.
The cover photo on the right is a picture of the Raintree Writers at one of our critique group meetings. I think they were dissecting my submission the night this was taken.
Okay, just kidding.
I never thought much about zombies before Brian joined our critique group. You can bet they're on my mind now.
Brian's launch party and zombie event was last night. I did not dress up like a zombie, nor did I let the makeup artists apply zombie goop to my face. I claimed that I never wear makeup because it makes my sensitive skin itch, and they believed me.
There were quite a few creepy characters present. Two of the best dressed are in the photo on the left . It's a wonder I didn't have nightmares. This fellow on the right is also in my critique group. We'll call him the smiling zombie. On the other hand, I could also call him Zombie Ken.
Brian's new blog is Food, Politics and Zombies.
