Susanne Winnacker: All Things Zombie

Today we have the AWESOME Susanne Winnacker, author of The Other Life (May 15th 2012 by Marshall Cavendish) here to tell us about ALL THINGS ZOMBIE!!! And don’t forget to enter to win a copy of The Other Life at the end of the post!

Susanne Winnacker

I’m so excited to be part of Zombie Craze 2012! Many people compare the Weepers from my book The Other Life with Zombies and it’s true there are some similarities, BUT Weepers aren’t dead.

Anyway. I love zombies. They are the epitome of creepiness and every horror fan should’ve watched at least one zombie movie in their life.

But I won’t list my favorite zombie movies today. Instead I’m giving you a list of things and events every zombie lover should’ve heard about!

Here it is:

All things zombie

 -for the well-informed zombie-enthusiast

1. The TorontoZombie Walk. It takes place every year in October!

2. The Zombies – an English rock band.

3. The CDC prepares the population for the zombie apocalypse on their health blog.

4. The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks. If you want to be prepare for the impending zombie invasion.

5. ZomBcon a convention for all things zombie. In 2011 it took place in Seattle. The 2012 convention has been cancelled but let’s hope that 2013 will be a better year for zombie lovers out there!

6. Boardgames? Yes, please.

7. Zombies vs. Unicorns by Holly Black and Justine Larbalestier. “It’s a question as old as time itself: which is better, the zombie or the unicorn?” That’s what it says in the anthology’s description. For us zombie lovers, this duel is easy. Zombies win, but maybe some people still need convincing.

8. You want to teach people how to survive a zombie attack? Wear this shirt: How to kill a Zombie shirt!

9. Shaun of the Dead – a British zombie comedy!

10. And last but not least. 7 scientific reasons a Zombie outbreak would fail!

Phew. That’s a relief, isn’t it?

That was my little zombie list. I hope you enjoyed it!

Thanks for having me on your blog, Ashley!

Well I DEFINITELY need that shirt… and I’m TOTALLY getting the zombie boardgames (Family Fun Night anyone??)

The Weepers: The Other Life
by Susanne Winnacker
Expected pub:5/5/2012 by Marshall Cavendish

3 years, 1 month, 1 week and 6 days since I’d seen daylight. One-fifth of my life.

Sherry and her family have lived sealed in a bunker in the garden since things went wrong up above. Her grandfather has been in the freezer for the last three months, her parents are at each other’s throats and two minutes ago they ran out of food.

Sherry and her father leave the safety of the bunker and find a devastated and empty LA, smashed to pieces by bombs and haunted by ‘Weepers’ – rabid humans infected with a weaponized rabies virus.

While searching for food in a supermarket, Sherry’s father disappears and Sherry is saved by Joshua, a boy-hunter. He takes her to Safe-haven, a tumble-down vineyard in the hills outside LA, where a handful of other survivors are picking up the pieces of their ‘other lives’. As she falls in love for the first time, Sherry must save her father, stay alive and keep Joshua safe when his desire for vengeance threatens them all.

    awesome: )

  11. Great post! Love the walk, board game, and shirt!
    All we need now are Zombie Snacks!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  12. Awesome post!! That shirt is really awesome. I have zombie dice, but no board games. I wanted to run in a 5k this weekend in Boston called run for your lives, but I’m too out of shape. Looks friggin awesome. It’s a 5k with obstacles and zombies trying to get you.

  13. Trellyn says:

    Oh some of these look really good. I’m not the biggest fan of zombies movies/books but some of these have me wanting to change my tone!

  14. I loved all your links! DAMN! I need to go to ZomBCom. Whose ass do I need to kick to get 2013 approved?

    Thanks for the giveaway! It is on my TBR, for sure!

  15. I LOVE the Zombie Walks in Toronto. I’ve done it twice and had a blast!

  16. This book sounds strange enough that I think I’d really enjoy it. I also know that the Brooklyn Public Library will never offer it, so I’m entering this wonderful contest to try and win it for my very own.

  17. It must be fate that a book blogger bestie of mine just reviewed Weepers! She gave it the highest praise!! I love the CDC’s announcement (that’s framable!) I didn’t know they made a Walking Dead board Game – that is awesome!! I think you have compiled a perfect list for all zombie fans to have.

  18. Rain Maiden Jen says:

    Loving the Zombie board game. I just picked up Max Brooks Zombie Survival Guide. Awesome giveaway!

  19. Jenny says:

    Ahhhh! LOVE your new zombie header! It’s amazing:) I think you are well aware by now that zombies terrify me, but I think the Toronto Zombie Walk would be so much fun:) I would take part in that in a second!

  20. Mr. B says:

    Love the 7 scientific reasons a Zombie outbreak would fail!

  21. Kimmie M. says:

    I want that Zombie boardgame! It looks awesome!

  22. I love zombies!! I have a few peeps I want with me when the Zombie Apocalypse occurs, because we’ll all have each others backs. #Fact The Tshirt is great, and Minion reads to me from The Zombie Survival Guide with ALARMING regularity. LOL

  23. There is a The Walking Dead boardgame? How did I not know this? Amazing.

  24. Bonnie says:

    How did I not know that this book had zombies?!?! Must get my hands on this.

  25. M.R. Merrick says:

    Whoa! There are a lot of comments, so if this has been mentioned, please disregard.

    What if the zombie bites the unicorn and it becomes a UniZombie? Does it fight for the unicorns still, or is it automatically on #TeamZombie? Because a Unicorn that is also a Zombie would be pretty badass. Right? Right!

  26. I didn’t think I liked zombie stories until I started reading ones like Carrie Ryan’s Forest of Hands and Teeth or Seth Graham-Smith’s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Now I’m a zombie fan!

  27. There’s a Walking Dead BOARD GAME?!?!? Sweet! I can’t wait until Season 3….

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  28. Totally off subject. Do you watch Castle? They had a zombie episode this week. Made me think of you. It’s on Hulu if you’re interested. ;)
