Road Trip of the Living Dead -Out Today! (And a contest!)

Today is the release day for my friend and fabulous author, Mark Henry’s follow up to last year’s Happy Hour of the Damned – ROAD TRIP OF THE LIVING DEAD!

Blurby Bit: Celebrity party girl Amanda Feral is back from the dead, and hungrier than ever for a good time. With her zombie gal pal Wendy and vampy gay sidekick Gil, this stone cold fox is dressed to kill, on the prowl, and ready to take a big juicy bite out of Seattle’s supernatural nightlife. But what’s a zombie chick to do when her “Mommie Dearest” gets sick? If you’re Amanda Feral, you can either ignore the wicked old witch—or bury the past by visiting Ethel before she kicks it. Amanda’s not thrilled about the idea of crossing three states just to be criticized. But Wendy, who’s always looking for fresh meat, is up for the adventure. And Gil, who just launched his “luxury” resurrection business, needs to disappear because a pissed-off client is out for his blood.

First, they pack their stiletto pumps and plasma into a skeevy rattrap on wheels that used to be a Winnebago. Then, with a little help from a Korean-ghost hood ornament, a masochist named Fishhook, and a slew of “moderately accurate” psychics, they hit the highway—their way. Of course, they’ll have to navigate past some neo-Nazi skinheads, a horny dust devil, a hunky werewolf cop (who could pass for an underwear model) and an unsightly horde of Kmart shoppers. But for this glamorous gang of ghouls this trip is about to take a dangerous detour that could give road kill a brand new meaning…

I love Mark’s voice. These books are like nothing else out there (in a good way, I swear). They’re demented and twisted and you can’t look away.

So here’s the deal – wanna win a copy? Straight from Amazon to you? Just comment here with a recent favorite read and you’re entered. I’ll choose a winner a’la randomizer by day’s end today (so let’s say 6 pm pacific/9 eastern) and announce it here.

    Just finished reading the new Eileen Wilks book, Mortal Sins and loved it. I auto-buy this series and have never been disappointed with any of her stories.

    A recent favorite of mine is Denise Rossetti’s The Flame and the Shadow. I absolutely fell in love with the characters, especially Gray and Shad. They were all so rich and definitely deserved their happily ever after. I’m now looking forward to the next in this series.

    I honestly…truthfully just drew a blank to all books while my brain is still trying to absord that excerpt.

    Lets see,
    Zombies- Yup
    Sexy Werewolf underwear Model Cops-Yup
    Horny Dust Devils- Yup

    And lest we forget the Korean Ghost hood ornament!

    This is SOOOOOOOOO going in my next purchase pile.

    I…I…have, I don’t know. This sounds like the most hillarious adventure one could take!

    Thanks for letting us know about it!
