Re: Chapter from another story I wrote

I like it, very entertaining. Keeps me wanting to read more. Positive feedback. Flesh out your protagonists and antagonists a little more. IE: As written: " Wendy had taken cover in the cemetery side yard to the church behind a large grave stone." Your reader doesn't have much to go on about who Wen...

My 2c about Combat Techniques

Just like I posted about a Z's physiology, there are some tenants of zombie combat in movies and books that irk me. 1. Moving headshots are HARD. I'm ex-military, and I think my peers would agree. If you can only drop a Z with a headshot, then you're gonna need to run, a lot. Not a lot of post-apoca...

Re: Looking for input on how I did.

FIRST CHAPTER: LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK - Mike March I was about 100 miles outside of Boston on the Massachusetts Turnpike when the sputtering, coughing, and ultimate quitting of the engine was my SUV’s declaration that I was out of gas and it was time to start hoofing it. I knew it was going to ...

Re: My 2c in Zombie Biology

My thoughts are that viruses have shown some level of intelligence. They can cause people to want to enter water, whereby they spread, or suddenly become more extroverted and outgoing right before taking a nose dive into more serious symptoms (allowing for spreading). I think a zombie virus could c...

Looking for input on how I did.

Hello All, My name is Mike Canon, I'm a ZA author, and I just published my first ZA Kindle novel. The second book should be out in April or May, with a short backstory in between. I'm looking for input on how I did on my first attempt. Thank you for your time and consideration. I'll be around ZS on ...

My 2c in Zombie Biology

I've always thought that many of the shows almost always make the zombies, and how they act, into an accident. Like one big huge genetic "Oooops, my bad." from mother nature. A big accident may be the case with some books, movies, etc., but I've always thought that there should be more. A human bein...

Re: Hello from Southern California

Welcome from Virginia! Glad to have you. Thanks Beowolf, I'm doing research for my second novel, while chatting with a friend. He says, "You a ZS Member?" I said, "A what member? Is this like another Hair Club for Men insult?" (Running joke - Not much hair on top, I shave it clean.) He says, "No du...

Hello from Southern California

Hello Everyone,

Found you guys through a friend of mine.

Been a huge fan for years, but never came across ZS until today.

I'm a Data Analyst by day, and ZA author by night and weekends.

I'm gonna go back to trolling the site.. So much I need to catch up on!


Mike

Re: 10 days and counting...

Congrats John, I used to live in the boonies of East Tucson (lots of desert scrub). Make sure you leave yourself a solid, clean-cut buffer zone. We had some terrible fires out in Tucson a couple years before I left. Desert scrub burns fast and very hot. Watched it torch a fire truck that was too clo...
