Ryan Hill's Dead New World

Hey friends! Today on the blog I have a little something different. I know I don't normally do zombies but my good friends over at Definition House have an up-and-coming author writing just that, and I had to have them on the blog. Plus they are doing things just a little bit differently! Check it out!

Here's Ryan's book:


Spooky, isn't it?

Here's a bit about the book:

Zombies aren’t mindless anymore.

They follow orders. And if Holt and Ambrose want to kill some undead, they’ll do the same. But when a routine mission goes horribly wrong, the best friends’ lives are flayed to the bone.

Now there’s only one light in the darkness of Holt’s life, and when she’s taken, he’ll do anything to get her back. Even if that means defying orders and using his best friend as a weapon. Holt and Ambrose risk all to save her, but what they discover among the hordes threatens to remake humanity. Again.

In the end, will there be anything left to live for in this dead new world?

Here's a bit about Ryan:



Ryan Hill likes to keep zombies in a safe place—his head. If zombies ever do take over, the thought of living off canned beans is not enticing. At all.
Ryan uses a healthy does of real life and imagination to come up with stories, and typically spends his time, reading, writing, and watching movies or TV shows...anything involving a good story. Drop him a line on Twitter  @J_Ryan.

What makes this book and Definition House special:


Definition House is a brand, new publisher and is writing their own rules. One word: Kickstarter! Just look.

The Kickstarter campaign is live! It’ll run from November 14 to December 14, and we are so excited! We believe that by using crowd-sourcing we will be able to generate buzz and interact with readers even before the book is published. It also brings authors and readers together so that they are both part of the publication journey. And as the publisher, we look forward to strengthening that bond. We’ve chosen Ryan Hill’s Dead New World as our first project and are looking forward to sharing it with you. Thank you for spreading the word. Now let’s make beautiful zombies together! 

Here's all the details about the campaign:

Here's some little known Zombie facts from Ryan:


 
Most people know the main facts about zombies — they like brains, don’t have a soul (or a pulse), and generally walk around moaning for no real reason. But did you know that even the walking dead have some peculiar tastes? Check it:
·         - Zombies don’t like candy. Or vegetables.
·         - The only song proven to get the dead to “break it down” is Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” True story.
·         - Zombies don’t eat dogs. They’re even a dead man’s best friend.
·        -  Zombies don’t clean up after themselves. They just leave the mess and move on. It’s murder on their clothes.
·        -  Their favorite TV show is “The Golden Girls.” Probably something to do with older people kind of being like zombies anyway.
·        -  Zombies may try to walk around like everybody else on Halloween, but they always get found out by their dead body stench. Every. Time.
·         - If given the choice, zombies like to wear Tommy Bahama. Not sure why.
·         - Zombies sometimes feel that books and movies treat them unfairly. As such, their favorite movie doesn’t involve a zombie. It’s Santa Claus: The Movie, starring Dudley Moore.
·         - Zombies have a way of evacuating waste from their body, but it’s an age old secret. They say the only way to find out is to become one of them.
