BOOK LAUNCH BLOG TOUR!!!!
Today I thought I'd try something different. I'm including a few short, previously unreleased excerpts from the book to whet your appetite.
Again, comment on the blog here and don't forget to sign in the rafflecopter at the end. Also, don't forget to follow the other stops each day!
** NOW OUT!!! Did you get your copy of GIRL Z: My Life as a Teenage Zombie?? **
1. So much is made of what zombies eat, namely us. But in GIRL Z: My Life as a Teenage Zombie, the main character, Becca, is part-Z for zombie and yet still human. So what does she eat? Well... without giving it away, here's a hint:
I gulped down the slimy chunks, fighting the gag reflex as I continued to slurp and chew, the globs of fat encircling my mouth. I chewed, burped and licked my lips, not caring about anything, or anyone, except the here and now.
I had only one thing on my mind—stopping the raging, blinding hunger.
2. What is life like for a girl who is not only 16 (with all the problems that go with being a teenager), but who becomes a part-zombie?
Sure I had the wandering eye problem and tripped over my own feet, but so far, most of my problems were somewhat tolerable, considering everything. Not so for most male Zs, I saw. Carm and I exchanged horrified glances as we watched the rude, obnoxious way several of them acted, hoping it was a rare occurrence. Hardly.
The main thing on most teenage Z's brains (the little they had left, of course) these days was food, followed by sex, a horrific combination.
The virus amplified the endless eating cycle teenage boys usually had. Even with all the protein drinks, I watched several stagger down the hall slobbering over packages of raw meat when they weren't slobbering over girls. Ugh. I wanted to laugh, and would've, if it wasn't so revolting.
3. One more: So what are the other, full-zombies like in Becca's world?
Naturally, they're all as different in "undeath" as they were in life, but here's a glimpse in one scene:
I gunned the car and twisted the steering wheel, the thing trying to hang on before it fell in a heap as we revved off. In the rearview mirror, I watched it stumble and stagger around in a circle, acting like it could catch us.
My calm broke in a torrent of curses when two more of them lurched from the trees at the side of the road and waved at us like long-lost demented friends.
