In my mailbox: May 19th

It looks like a thunderstorm may be brewing and the mailman is speeding through the neighborhood. Odd how he can deliver mail quickly when he wants too. This week I got a copy of Zombie Housewives of the Apocalypse (link). Enjoy the quick thumb-through … Don’t miss the best part of the book … “There are some mighty fine male zombies in this neighborhood, yes, indeed. I’m watching you Barry Huddleston!” Looks like the authors and PR folks out there need to step up their game, a free book is great, but these ladies put me IN their book!

Brainz … brainzzzz

As many of you know, I enjoy Autumnforest over at Ghost Hunting Theories.  For the most part, she finds my inane babble to be entertaining and that flatters my overly inflated ego. While commenting on her blog, I posed the question could the zombies of popular fiction be haunted by their own ghosts? Autumnforest took my mental droppings and made a contest out of it.  A short story (1000 words or less) and the premise is; what if a zombie’s soul haunted him?  The rules: Be a follower 1000 words or less Premise: What if a zombie’s soul haunted him/her?
