James, I'd be happy to email you a free PDF version of my novel (You and Me, Against the World) in trade for your thoughts on it. The offer is open to any other zombie fan who'd like to read it (as opposed to purchasing it which you can also do LOL)

CURE (A Strandville Zombie Novel) If you're looking for something readers are hailing as original zombie fiction, you might like my new novel (sorry for the self promotion, but after reading what you were looking for, it seemed like a fit). While there are a couple of more "trained" characters, most of them are everyday folks in a very bad situation.

Wow Belinda.... this looks awesome. Actually your other books look good too.

Love the cover!

Try "Zone One: A Novel". Heroes don't get much more ordinary than that guy!

Alone With The Dead is a short story but it deals with a regular father trying to keep his family alive at the beginning of a zombie apocalypse. Alone With The Dead

The main character (and narrator) in GAMELAND Episodes 1-8 (S. W. Tanpepper's GAMELAND) is a seventeen year old girl named Jessey. Her only powers are that she's a good computer gamer. I'm two books into the series and just updated my package with the third (and the fourth comes out next week!). It's blend of high tech (science and the American government created the zombies--I say this with glee as I'm Canadian LOL) and good old fashioned gore and horror. But they're long for a series. So far 150 thousand words! You get your money's worth. Jessey is flawed, as are her friends, and she makes bad decisions. Yet she's completely sympathetic. I think that's what I like about it: she's normal.

Anyway, I read Hocking's Hollowland and was disappointed. I mean, really? A lion follows her around? Tanpper's series is at least well written and believable (well, in a zombie-world sense).

I've read a couple of shorts by Tanpepper. He used to hang out around here a while back and offered up some shorts to read.
I just love the word play with his name, too. Saul Tanpepper. Makes me chuckle every time.

Did I hear someone call my name? ;o)

I'm still around. Just been really busy with the series and a new collaboration with a couple other authors with my publisher on a book review blogging guide. It's like running a marathon! That and a new account on fb. You know how they can get: lots of feeding and coddling. I'll be pulling back on the writing a little after this month though, so I'll have a bit more time to hang out on the boards.

@David and @CJ, glad you like the series. I'll be pubbing the 4th episode in a few days, so check your emails.

Cheers, everyone.

@Charlene, you'd be surprised how many people don't get the pun ;o)

Try Dead City by JJ Zep (in fact the entire Zombie D.O.A. Series). Excellent read.

Dead City (Book 1 of the Zombie D.O.A. Series)

You may want to try Outbreak: The Zombie Apocalypse by Craig Jones. It's a fantastic story with real and believable characters.

Thanks, @MP. Hope you enjoy it. BTW, the 1st book in the series is free today and tomorrow (ducks as the boots go flying).

Charlene gave me my first review ever, so she'll always have a special place in my heart ;o)

I didn't think you remembered.
BTW, I still remember the story, so you definitely did something right. : )

Check out Zombie Games (Origins). See the reviews. It was funny and adventurous.

Just want to give a shout out to Timothy Long. He writes some good classic zombie lit, often with a unique twist. Here are a couple I really liked:
The Zombie Wilson Diaries
Among the Living
