Zombies are going (have gone?) the way of vampires.
Turned into laughable jokes or fun feisty flesh eaters for books and movies alike.
Gone are the days when my favorite undeads were revered, feared, & only lovable by the truly insane. It’s all over. There are, of course, a few people I deem responsible for the loss of the Age of Zombie Innocence, ie. the classic zombie—but I will not name names.
I’ll keep it classy.
So here is my plea: I want a zombie manuscript. Not a funny one. Not a witty one. No spoofs. No romance. I want a zombie manuscript so visually and verbally terrifying it will send George Romero and Danny Boyle under the covers. Shivering, holding on to each other for their dear lives…
Consider this my virtual HELP WANTED sign.
If you’re not sure if your manuscript falls under YA…send it anyway. I am craving some zombie action!
