First Review For ‘Zombies Can’t Swim…’ Anthology

19 Mar

Zombies Can’t Swim … got its first official review yesterday from the nice people on the ZombieGift.com, where it got 4.75 brains out of a possible five.

Here’s a few of my favourite quotes from it:

‘The majority of the terse tales in this collection are so well written and so engaging they leave you yearning for more.’

‘I found these stories more realistic than many zombie novels I’ve read. I really liked the fact that Mr. Drysdale acknowledges the fact that the good guy doesn’t always win, especially when it comes to the apocalypse and the days of the undead roaming the earth. Things don’t always work out for the best. Sometimes the most logical or easiest conclusion to a zombie story isn’t always the prettiest or most desirable for the protagonist.’

‘A collection of short zombie themed stories is perfect for busy zombie fans that don’t have a ton of time to read. This is also the ideal solution for those with a short attention span. I loved being able to pick up this book and read a short story or two when I needed a break from my daily activities.’

‘The end of most stories in this book features an “Author’s Notes” section. It’s a very cool little blurb where Mr. Drysdale provides some deeper insight on things such as why a story was written, how the idea came about or simply a way to provide more information on a topic.’

If you want to read the whole review, you can find it here. Even if you don’t, it’s worth checking out ZombieGift.com for regular zombie-based giveaways (including signed copies of Zombie’s Can’t Swim … at some point in the near future).

Cover Design For Anthology Of Short Zombie Stories

8 May

Since just before Christmas, I’ve been posting a series of short zombie stories on this blog (mostly in this Wednesday slot). I’m now planning on bringing these together in an anthology which will be released as a paperback and a Kindle ebook later in the year.

I don’t have a planned released date yet as I still need to write a few more stories before I reach the 150 pages I’m aiming for. I do, however, have a draft of the cover design, and I’d be interested in getting some feedback on this.

So, if you have the time, cast your eye over the images below and if you have any particularly strong views either way or any suggestions for improvements, let me know by commenting on this post.

So here’s the draft of the front cover:

Draft Front Cover For Zombies Can't Swim Anthology

Here’s the draft of the back cover:

Draft Back Cover For Zombies Can't Swim Anthology

Draft Back Cover For Zombies Can’t Swim Anthology




And here’s the whole cover design:

Draft Whole Cover Zombies Can't Swim Anthology

Draft Whole Cover Zombies Can’t Swim Anthology




I’ll look forward to hearing any thoughts that anyone out there might have.
