Friday Night Drabble Party!

So, before we get started with the Party I want to talk about Little Dead Man.

Little Dead Man is my Young Adult novel that I finished back in January 2011, but just released last month. It is a rip-roaring action/adventure thriller set in post-apocalyptic Oregon years after a zombie virus has nearly wiped out humanity. It centers around Garret and Garth Weir. Garret is a strapping seventeen year old that has had to deal with an interesting problem: Garth, his conjoined twin, is dead. Or “undead” as the case may be. Garth was dead at birth, but since Garret and Garth share blood vessels and part of their spine, Garth can’t be removed. Not with the lack of medical facilities in that post-apocalyptic world. Instead, Garret has had to learn to live with a zombie Garth attached to him. It has presented challenges, but like all siblings, they work through it.

Little Dead Man is written for middle school and up. It has a lot of action and some zombie violence, but is free of offensive language and naughty bits. My daughter is in fifth grade and currently reading it. My son is in eight grade and loved it, as did many of his friends when I shared the first draft.

So if Little Dead Man sounds like something for your young adult reader then get in on it quick while there’s time before the holidays! Links are below to the many different retailers where it is available as an ebook and in print. You can even get a signed print copy directly from me!

Now, in honor of Little Dead Man, tonight’s drabble is set in that universe. It gives you just a taste of what goes on between conjoined twins when one is alive and one is undead.

What is Little Dead Man?

THIS is is Little Dead Man:

“Garret Weir has just turned seventeen. For any normal teen this would be quite the milestone. But for Garret it’s even more amazing he’s made it to this age, because in Garret’s life the human population of the Earth is gone, changed and turned into flesh hungry zombies, or “necs”, as he calls them. In the world he was born into, except for his parents that have kept him safe in a small compound hidden in the mountains of southern Oregon, Garret has never known another living soul. However, he is not the only seventeen year old in the family. Just the only one living. For Garret is alive and breathing and his twin, Garth, is undead, has been since birth, leaving him the size of an infant and attached to Garret’s spine. And he won’t leave his brother in peace.

Set decades after the zombie apocalypse, Little Dead Man tells the story of conjoined twins Garret and Garth Weir. A fast-paced, high-action tale that doesn’t pull any punches as Garret, with Garth always attached, must struggle with a mother that is mentally unstable, a missing father that has kept too many secrets and the fact that the world he had always been told was completely dead, actually has well-developed human survivor pockets. And not all of those are friendly. Not even close.”

You like? Oh, you will. You will…

Now, the print version will not be available for another couple of weeks, but I’ll be sure to let you know. In the meantime you can order Little Dead Man for your ereader of choice. You can also purchase the ebook as a gift and send it to that favorite young adult (or adult) in your life. ‘Tis the season!

If you do buy the book make sure you go back and like the page and also post a review. Even just a couple of words such as “The best piece of literature written in the 21st Century!”. That kinda stuff helps.

Enjoy and I’m looking forward to hearing how you like the novel and discussing it with you!
