It’s a global pandemic! Worldwide Sale of ‘INFECTED’ by James Schannep!

Get INFECTED!

3 Unique Storylines. Over 50 Possible Endings. Just one question…

Will YOU Survive the Zombie Apocalypse?

Here’s how it works:

You, Dear Reader, are the main character of this story. Live, die, and rise again based solely on the merit of your own choices. Each link represents a choice, and there’s no going back, so choose wisely.

Everyone has their plan; what they’d do to survive if and when the zombies come. Now you can see how you’d hold up against the legions of undead—without needing to call the CDC because crazed bath salts users are trying to eat your face off.

“Infected. Is. So. Good.”A girl just like you.

“Holy $#*% this is awesome!”A guy more or less like you.

‘Fans of The Walking Dead or George Romero’s Living Dead series can now live their own apocalyptic adventure. Like the gamebooks popular in the 1980s-90s (Choose Your Own Adventure, Give Yourself Goosebumps, etc), this is a series where you choose how to progress through the book. Unlike any others, this is the first series designed specifically for adults. And as an ebook, you simply click your choice and the story flows forward for you. No flipping pages.’

[Editor’s note: Because this ebook jumps wildly from link to link, the “Look Inside” function may not work properly. For a clear view on how an “interactive ebook” works, please watch this quick video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JkTtrNeJttw%5D

“One February day, when Hephaestus was hitting on The Muses, they began a playful argument: Is it possible for a mortal man to be *too* creative? What would happen to his primitive brain if it were to suddenly overflow with ideas? Zeus, never one to leave an argument to the fate of mere words, sent a lightning bolt to earth where it struck upon a hapless young man–your author, James Schannep.”

“Thus Click Your Poison books were created as a repository to store the overabundant brain fruit. Each of Schannep’s books split into three unique storylines and contain over 50 possible endings. But the fate of each book; nay, of mankind, rests with YOU, dear reader. For it is your choices that will shape the story in these books.”

Rich Restucci: Drinking with Jason! *Guest Blog by Joy Killar*

Check out Rich Restucci’s latest zombie novel: Chaos Theory 

Rich Restucci has done it again. He has written a novel that is at once as visceral as it is entertaining. Chaos Theory: A Zombie Novel introduces us to a motley group of characters whose lives cross paths during extreme apocalyptic duress. The three main protagonists are immensely likable, and there is no doubt you will be cheering them on as they try to survive.”

Rich Restucci has the uncanny ability to blend horror and humor in ways that keep me coming back for more. His amazing perspective of what life might be like when humanity meets its greatest challenge- the zombie plague, will certainly have both fans of the genre and newcomers alike hooked on his writing. Chaos Theory: A Zombie Novel by Rich Restucci is a must read and will make an excellent addition to every horror fan’s bookcase.”

~ written by Joy Killar on zombiefiend.com / original post HERE

“For episode 16, Rich brought a bowl of beer. Literally. Rich explained how he got his first book published, translated into foreign languages, and turned into an audiobook. I hate him for his success. We also talked about zombies, of course, and his love the Patriots and 18 packs.”

OF LONE HEADSTONES [Book One] by Jorge Bocanegra

Previously titled “Headstone Sonata”.

This novelette is a perfect example of why I started BBB, and why I’m so passionate about supporting indie writers. It also reminds me that I need to thank the person who invented the e-reader, because without my Kindle I would have never found all the amazing books that I’ve read, or met the talent & hearts behind the writing.
(My awesome idea to thank the inventor of the e-reader is posted at the bottom).

OF LONE HEADSTONES combines all 4 verses of the previously published Headstone Sonata, and is the first volume in a series written by new-to-me author Jorge Bocanegra.

“What’s worse, the monsters crawling out of their graves or the ones that we can’t keep buried in our minds?

Joel has long been a victim to the viscous teeth of the assumptions and misconceptions conjured in his own mind concerning his relationship with his girlfriend, Alex. After three years together, things just haven’t been the same. But now, those monstrous doubts in his head will become personified in the form of risen corpses in the city of Orchard.

Will Joel and Alex be able to put aside their differences and survive together? Or will this apocalyptic event spell the perfect opportunity for the couple to go their separate ways?”

OfLoneHeadstones.Cover.

OF LONE HEADSTONES chronicles Joel’s experiences during the beginning of the zombie apocalypse. Surrounded by monsters, each new obstacle he faces triggers inner demons that he has to fight, making survival doubly difficult.
This is a very emotional story.  I had tears in my eyes more than once, feeling literal heart-ache for the characters. There is a scene where Joel finds a boy (named Jorge) hiding from the zombies in a bathroom stall, and that encounter broke my heart in 27 different ways.
I can’t say if these situations are written from a deeply raw & painful place, or if Jorge is just a kick ass writer, but it’s definitely a hard journey to take, and I can’t wait to read more!

I’ll be reading this whole series, so plan on hearing more about Joel.

ZOMBIE! ZOMBIE! BRAIN BANG! – An anthology from SHB

zzbb

OZ by Brian Williams
Brilliant story! Why it hasn’t been written before now is a mystery to me. Maybe it’s because of that pesky ‘Going straight to Hell’ thing (?) I don’t know. It’s written now, and I’m pleased to know that I’ll be hanging out with Brian Williams when I die. I’ve heard that the coffee shops in Hades are lovely.

BABY ARMOUR by D.F. Noble
A Nascar fan with a gaggle of babies finds the perfect way to get some money. Never mind how drunk he was when he came up with the plan. Not for sensitive readers – take the title literally, and read at your own risk. I can seperate IRL from fiction, and I cringed – while giggling.

PLAY PLACE by Mike Lombardo
Those playscapes at Mickey D’s are disgusting pits of children’s ooze, but this one turned out to be a safe haven for the workers when the SHTF. How long do you think you could survive in the claustrophobic tunnels before you could escape safely, or the zeds got to you?

THIS is how you look to the zombies!!
THIS is how you look to the zombies!!

FLUSH by K.M. Tepe
This one is terrifying. I always look in the toilet now, especially since the spider incident of ’91. This brought back all those rational/irrational fears. I grew to love the little sister in this story, and can picture them growing up in a few years – into a Sam & Dean Winchester relationship, and business.

THE JOB by Quinn Hernandez
A zombie hunter with a low moral code will get rid of your dead kid problem… because the younger they are, the more profit he gets. As long as they’re still undead upon delivery. Hey – it’s a dog eat dog world these days!

HUMMANIFACTION by Mandy DeGeit
This is a really interesting ss – and I’m a little torn about telling you about it, or letting you read it to find out yourself. It’s very short, so I think I’ll let you read it without any spoilers. The title makes sense 😉

FELICITY MARMADUKE by Rich Bottles Jr.
Felicity is a bit fucked in the head, but not enough to be punished the way that she was. A morgue worker who got a bit frisky had the unthinkable happen to her. While trying to fix the situation, she was a little too free with her speech. An unfortunate thing, because her doctor ratted her out.

UNDYING URGES by Jesse Wheeler
Henry is quite into his necrophilia. In fact, he’s pretty sick compared to other necros I’ve read about. Frugal to a fault, he looks longingly at his gooey puddle o’ Brenda with affection, and decides to give her one more round on the Henry stick before disposing of her. It’s only now that he realizes how special she is.

SALTY by Justin Roberts
Oh, balls. This zombie story is close to my reason for human infection. Not close enough for me to not finish it, but… Bath Salts is an awesome segue ever since the Florida Face Eater.
Besides… I like saying ‘balls’ at numerous times throughout the day.
Kenny, and Stanley are trying Bath Salts for the first time. Kenny’s experience is a bit more enjoyable than Stanley’s!

PACK-RAT or –
THE WAY OF ALL FLESH – A Parable by John Bruni
This feels like a true love story 웃❤유
These zombies are not like the movies, and it’s not Humans VS Zeds.

RIGHTS OF THE LIVING DEAD by David Hayes
Karen works at The Careful Solutions Abortion Clinic. When the SHTF, you can imagine what type of reanimated corpses invade Karen’s Territorial Bubble!

ZOMBIES OF EAST JESUS by Jesse Wheeler
The zombies came because those damn fool kids never learn. No respect for other people’s property, and an urge to see some boobs brought on the apocalypse. I could think of worse things.

Guest Blogger – Joy Killar’s review of THE BONE ARCHITECT by Ian Woodhead

BoneIanWoodhead

The Bone Architect by Ian Woodhead is a gruesome and scary page turner. This disturbing slasher story launches into immediate action that is sure to make your heart beat faster and your eyes widen in fear. Even the most die-hard horror fans will find this novel a terrifying venture. I am impressed by Ian Woodhead’s mastery of the genre and his ability to shock even me…. I highly recommend The Bone Architect to any readers who are looking for true horror, and willing to be scared sleepless.
