Summer of Zombie 2014 SPOTLIGHT ON: Claire C Riley!

What is your latest zombie release?

Odium II The Dead Saga

 

 

Quick description of it (no spoilers)

Fortune favors…the DEAD!

Some secrets are too horrific to ever be forgiven, and some people should never be trusted.

Tortured, starved, and on the run, Nina thinks she’s faced the worst that mankind has to offer, but she’s wrong. She may have survived this long, but she hasn’t come out of it unscathed, and there’s worse to come.

Nina’s trusty Doc Martens are showing signs of the zombie apocalypse, and she isn’t faring much better. With her snarky attitude guaranteed to get her in trouble, Nina needs to forgive the past, to live once more in the present, and learn that sometimes she needs to place her trust in other people.

Because when people are faced with the end of times, they’ll do anything to survive.

Something unique about it.

Unusual? Hmm, there’s the space monkeys, and the flying rabbits but other than that there’s nothing really unusual about it.

I mean, of course you have Deaders, and bad-guys, a strong snarky female protagonist with no filter for her mouth. There’s more plot twists than you can shake a stick at—not that you try that, cus you know, that would just be weird. There’s of course a really cool and interesting mix of bad-ass characters that have been ‘built’ around some of my readers that filled in a survival questionnaire for me.

Other than that, yeah, just a typical z-poc book really.

Being a busy bee during the summer

I’m loving the opportunities coming my way!  Not only am I writing for Stench Radio Magazine, I’m going to be writing a story for an anthology hosted by one of my favorite authors!!  Also, I got the green light by editor Hannah Neurotica to submit a story for the magazine Ax Wound, the world’s first feminist horror zine for all horror fans.  On top of all of that, I’m writing my anthology to be finished this fall.  

For the past few weeks, I’ve been able to pick up on some reading.  The first book I read was Hell, Texas, by Tim Miller.  If you like Edward Lee type stories then this is for you!  Enough blood and guts to make any gorehound cringe.  

The other book was Echoes by Michael Bray.  I’m a sucker for ghost stories, and this one did not disappoint.  Echoes is the second out of the Whisper trilogy, and I can’t wait to read the third when it’s published.  

Great job, guys, and I’m excited to read your upcoming books!
