Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Hi all zombie fans. Well first thanks to those who have purchased DNA: Code Flesh (Volume I) the teaser novella!
On JULY 4, 2012, the full version, "DNA: CODE FLESH" is going to be released as the trilogy officially takes off...

Don't forget CODE MIND and its hoped for Fall release and the final installment of CODE SOUL sometime in early 2013. There are other possibilities of some novellas prequels featuring, Bridjett and Shad Alexi, Dr. Amy, Lee Uttermost, Rico True, Draco Fortellis, Brick, Cisco, "the girl", and many more characters to be introduced in the first installment. Stay tuned and thanks for all the support!

ALSO, keep an eye out for the "Dead Education's Amy" YA trilogy that will be a companion series to DNA and be set in an alternative universe. The first book, "Flesh Code" is expected to be complete by the end of the summer. An excerpt is available in this book.

Just remember to spread out DNA all over your Kindles..sheets.....of paper....and to all of your friends....

SCRAT WAY! EAT FLESH!

Also, the author is not politically correct, nor will he ever claim to be. He won't stop asking questions and challenging the system that is in place from top to bottom and side to side. He won't stop pressing for the best in life for the people who are the "99 percent"" from coast to coast, hemisphere to hemisphere, continent to continent. He believes for every 1 he angers there are 10 he motivates. Some may not want to back him in fear of what others may think. Some may want to back him to the hilt in hopes of what others may learn.
Remember....we are taking back the 99 percent, one percent at a time!

WHY EXPLORE THE "DNA"
Quite frankly, about a decade ago, I began seeing more and more of what was going wrong in our world. Being both a journalism and history major I tend to wax nostalgic and read a lot about past civilizations and dynasties. It is scary how similar the demise of our nation parallels those of other empires past - think Greece, Rome, Persia, etc.
The difference is, that with the world becoming so much smaller and compact due to technological advancements, the so-called 'elite' have decided to become buddies. It is a known fact that when a populace's decision makers and governmental leaders come from means (you know, Silver Spoon kids), ultimately its nation and infrastructure fails. Why? Well how can the 1 percent who have no semblance of what struggle and day-to-day survival is, relate to the 99 percent? They can't. Historically, they tend to be greedy and want the whole playground to themselves.
The problem is now all of those kids have grown up and can Skype with those of their ilk in Japan, Russia, Germany, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, and of course the United States. This does not bode well for the people. Thus, DNA was written as a way to first, entertain, second, educate, and third, predict and show where we are headed if we do not stop this from happening. I mean c'mon? Really? The insurance rates? The medical billings? The gas prices? Grocery prices? Etc. Etc. It's not just us. It's everywhere. But, sadly, if we don't fix it, we are in trouble.
"DNA" tackles multiple issues in today's world, by gently wrapping them in zombie-fied decorations. These includes, a military choosing to take a 'winning side' only to find out the depravity of its government's actions. Now what do they do? It also delves into the failings of the educational system, and how political correctness could be used as a way to castrate the strength of a populace. The biggest concern "DNA" deal with is how our society's young are being funneled into a dead end of complete brainwashing leaving them susceptible to a future government willing and able to take over the system with little resistance.
"DNA" basically explores what will happen and what we ultimately deserve when things don't get properly dealt with. If I may offer a teaser...it's the first zombie-horror story with a totally 'happy' ending....but, be careful what we wish for.

BEFORE "DNA"
     Starting in 2001, I began working on a story that would talk about our ability to travel within the Internet. Ultimately, it started to unfold as a tale of dependence on the WEB and technology itself. I completed it in late 2004 and It also is available as an e-book on Amazon. I really like the story, but my writing was still working itself out, at least novel-wise.

"The Enternet: Trapped Inside A WEB"
      THE ENTERNET: Trapped Inside A WEB, is a futuristic thriller about Brian Masters, a detective who pursues a web-traveling serial killer only to find that he and the killer are both pawns of Klemm Teegs, the falsely-imprisoned technical mastermind behind the invention of society's cybertravel infrastructure. Aided by the expertise of a mysterious woman known to him only as The Mark, Masters must now save society from total ruin by preventing Teegs from enacting his vengeful and fanatical plan to destroy the infrastructure...or is society already doomed by the nature of the infrastructure itself?

More About the Author

ABOUT THE WRITER/CREATIVE FORCE?

Alan Dale is a long-time journalist who has won seven national awards and recently completed "Dead Nations' Army Book One: Code Flesh", his second book. His first book, "The Enternet: Trapped Inside A WEB", is currently available via Amazon Kindle. He has written on news topics and sports in the newspaper business since he was 14 and has been printed over 14,000 times.

Recently, Dale published his short "Eat Me or Bite Me (Just Don't Ignore Me)" which also includes excerpts of his other works.

Dale completed the first volume of the DEA series, "Dead Education's Army: Flesh Code." He hopes to create an alternative universe using many of the same premises as the "DNA" storyline. This is also available on Kindle.
In the future he aims to get "Dead Nations' Army Book Two: Code Mind" out by the end of 2014, beginning of 2015.
Ultimately he also hopes to knock out 10 prequel novellas leading up to the first page of "DNA: Code Flesh" dealing with some of the more central characters. Those would be released before the final installment of the trilogy, "CODE SOUL."
His future works include the "Nigel" vampire series, "24=1M" a different form of postapocalyptic prose, and "Godless" which delves into religion in a whole different way.
Also, keep an eye out for the "Hellearth Chronicles" that will see the light of day eventually and could cause a stir.

He currently lives in the northwest, and is a huge fan of music, movies, and international sports such as rugby, cricket, soccer, basketball, and hockey, while also reading, watching movies, and listening to his vast music collection.

DNA is a well thought out story line. I've had the pleasure of reading more than the first release bit, and I must say Alan Dale has crafted a story worth reading. The characters are well thought out and developed. The story line is well done, and the overall feel of the book is top notch. I hope the rest of the world enjoys this book as much as I have. I highly recommend picking this book up with each new release.

I try my best to support indie authors. I've seen this author "around" certain circles, and figured I'd show my support and buy a copy.

The premise was decent. I even liked the politics he was trying to convey. I thought stylistically there was opportunity, but I think the author missed the mark. The bad editing was hard to get through as well. I understand most indie authors don't have the funds to get their book edited, but there are still many resources to help such things. I'd suggest a slow read through which would catch most of the errors. There are many great books on editing as well as cheap editors, and I'd suggest such.

Either way, I did finish the book and didn't put it down. I would have ranked it higher had the author spent some more time and effort into editing. On a side note, I'm not a fan of an author using donations to charities as a sales tactic. I won't hold it against the author, but I'm not a fan of that.

Regardless, I'll download the next and hope it's better. Either way, I'll support the author as I could only imagine how hard it is to write, edit and promote one's work with no help. Keep up the good work and tons of success.

This is not a title I would normally read. I do love me some walking dead movies, but reading about them usually doesn't cut it for me. Alan Dale has a way of writing, however, that pulls you into the plot with his descriptive imaginings of the atmosphere he wishes to create. His unique storytelling abilities kept me interested until the end.

The plot was not a rehashed zombie eats humans story, but I won't spoil it. This was a believable plot line with realistic characters. The dialogue flowed naturally and felt like a conversation not stilted ramblings. I would recommend this story to friends who enjoy this genre.

Way to much repetition of words. Words. Words. Staccato speech. So. Annoying. Too. Much. Politics. Needs editing. O.K, I'm finished being annoying with the words. I honestly couldn't finish this book. I finally gave it up at 59% I seldom quit a book that I've paid money for, but this was just bad writing. The concept of this story was an excellent idea, and might still be good if he had better editing. The fact is that some of his sentences made no sense whatsoever. Unfortunately, I also bought his second book at the time I got this one. The reviews were good, so I figured "what the hell I'll just get both." Argh!! No, I would not recommend this story to anyone.

I read this book on a long flight. It started off in an odd fashion, and I had to wonder exactly what the author was doing when he wrote "Before I begin I will warn you, the style of writing in certain sections may seem "off" or "fragmented." I understand if some of you may be put off by this. I really do. But trust me when I say...it is intended. There is a purpose in the writing." He goes on to say "We hope to hear plenty from readers...critiques good and bad. All that is ultimately hoped for from this work is that YOU benefit from reading it. It is time to get you educated...let's change things while we still can."

It was at this point I realized that it was going to be a long, bumpy ride, and I wasn't talking about the flight. Thank goodness my Kindle Fire has the ability to make notes. I started the book again, and got my editing finger warmed up.

First of all, and I address all self-published authors here, everyone knows that the majority of your 5-star reviews are written by your close friends who are a) dishonest friends, b) blood relatives, or c) in a position to be blackmailed. I read this book on the advice of a Facebook friend, and I am confused by his recommendation.

However, I can think of a few truly gifted self-published authors. Hugh Howey comes to mind. Go and read his books if you want to spend your time (and money) wisely.

The book appears to stem from the author's views about the 99% versus the 1% and the current political climate. Throw in zombies (scrats) and voila!, a book is born. I understand his views, and agree with most of his stated frustrations. However, some people simply should not ever put pen to paper.

Just because someone has an interesting concept for a book does not mean that they have any writing talent.

Not a huge zombie fan, but I am a huge horror fan. I also am a fan of stylistic writing. Alan Dale definitely has some style. In your face, lots of repetition. The action scenes read quickly. I enjoyed the originality of the NWO utopian societies. The book also had the proper amount of gore, fighting, death and flesh for a good zombie novel. I also liked the strong female lead Bridjitt and the relationship she has with her brother Shad. An interesting post-zombie apocalyptic society.

This being said, I did find some editorial issues that pulled away from the main story. Some time and content issues, basic proofreading stuff. Nothing major, but noticeable. Overall, a good introduction to a new author. I am anxiously awaiting the release of the full-length novel.

More like 3.5 stars.
