Book Description

"I need to say this: I didn’t technically kill him. I had a choice; close the door and move forward or keep the door open giving the two-timing son-of-a-bitch a chance to make it. Since the horde was behind him and he had a limp, I made my decision, I stuck to it, and I have no regrets.

Sure, it was made easier since a day earlier he’d left me at the altar, and later I found out he’d been sleeping with my sister. Do I blame her? No, we’re even, I left her outside of the car as I sped away from the first group of flesh eating brain dead. "

Maddison Montgomery is not your typical bridezilla, not only is she willing to rip the flower girl's hair out if she doesn't cooperate, she's willing to destroy anyone dead or alive who gets in the way of her perfect wedding, including the groom.

Not just another collection of zombie stories, these are tales of real people dealing with the worst that humanity has to offer from alcoholism, zombie STD's, to marginalized women in the military. Filled with horror, carnage, redemption, and a whole lot of zombies, this book has a little of everything for the zombie fan.

HE LEFT HER AT THE ALTAR, SHE LEFT HIM TO THE ZOMBIES contains fourteen short stories that will make you laugh, cry, look for a vomit bag, and then come back for more!

“Katie Cord mixes love, horror, sex, and death together to create something beautifully twisted and Barker-esque. She keeps the zombies in the background and focuses her attention on the sick, twisted humans that fill her fantastic stories.”
-- Peter Clines – author of The Ex-Heroes Series

"Katie Cord gives us a startling glimpse at the most wicked and perverse sides of humanity. The best part? You can't look away."
--Eloise J. Knapp - author of The Undead Situation

“This is an enthralling, engaging, and terrifying piece of zombie literature. Katie Cord’s HE LEFT HER AT THE ALTER, SHE LEFT HIM TO THE ZOMBIES is the kind of book you can really sink your teeth into. Don’t hesitate to pick this one up.”
-- Timothy W. Long – author of The Z-Risen Series

“Read on. Enjoy. And relish a fresh new take on the zombie apocalypse. Katie Cord’s HE LEFT HER AT THE ALTER, SHE LEFT HIM TO THE ZOMBIES will not disappoint you.”
-- Rhiannon Frater – author of The Dying Days Series

5.0 out of 5 stars Trust me this is a great book February 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book at the urging of a friend. Feeling an obligation to follow through since I am always blabbing to people what books they should read, I ordered the book with no expectations.

Well, I am so glad I fulfilled my obligation. Obligation turned into delight as I whipped through this small but wonderful collection of short stories.

What I enjoyed best was the fact that Ms. Cord understand that readers have brains and don't need to be spoon-fed ever bit of information to be entertained. She gives little back ground but drops us into the world of her stories and we can begin to see that world with each story. How fantastic is that for the reader that likes to process the words and plot as they read?

The last two stories in the book do switch it up a bit. They are written with great confidence by a new writer. Again, the reader isn't assaulted by background, just the details necessary for you to enjoy the story and get the point.

I do hope Ms. Cord understand the strength of her talent and keeps writing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Doubleshot Reviews book review December 29, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Technically 3.5 stars, but worthy of rounding up.

Would you take the sage advice of a friend who had long since been dead but has been brought back with a bit of VooDoo magic? What would you do if you found out that instead of hitting puberty you were becoming a flesh eating creature and everything about your life was a lie? How far would you go to save your love from living a life of pain and suffering from a horrific illness? These are just a few questions that can be raised when reading He Left Her at the Altar, She Left Him to the Zombies by Katie Cord.

Consisting of 10 short stories, all of which revolve around a female main character, He Left Her at the Altar, She Left Him to the Zombies is a fun read with a number of stories that I greatly enjoyed. There were, as always, a few that weren't up my alley, but that is to be expected in most anthologies. Cord does a great job telling a story in a limited number of words. Being a newly published author, there are a few aspects to Cord's writing style that could be fleshed out, but that will happen as she continues her writing. I definitely look forward to reading more from this author.

If you are fan of anthologies that are a quick fast paced read, definitely give He Left Her at the Altar, She Left Him to the Zombies a try

4.0 out of 5 stars An Entertaining Debut from a Promising Author April 2, 2012
Entering Katie Cord's world is akin to exploring the food court at a mall: all of the colors and smells are turned up to a saturating intensity. These stories read like the moment in a superhero story when the hero suddenly acquires powers. In these cases, the powers are internal, as the protagonists are forced to abandon the values they had once held. Pervasive throughout these stories is a sense of dramatic irony: we all know that the big bad is coming, and the suspense of wanting the characters to realize their circumstances makes for page-turning reads. Cord shifts effortlessly from one age group to the next, between socioeconomic statuses, ethnicities, and settings. The cumulative effect is a sense that the world of the reader is in the same peril experienced on the page. Like Cord's characters, we too would do well to take a hard look at our surroundings, raid the garage for camping gear, and race for the hills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong Characters, Unique Ideas October 30, 2012
I picked this book up at a zombie event. Usually I read full length novels (not short stories) but Katie's stories pulled me in. Each story is unique and gives the reader a look at how the zombie plague might come into someone's life and change it forever. I was most impressed by Katie's ability to alter her writing style to fit the voice of each character. As a writer myself I know how difficult that is to do.

My only complaint is that I finished reading the collection too quickly! As I turned the last page I found myself wishing for just one more story, one more delicious take on the zombie genre.

Keep writing, Katie!
