I've thrown my hat into the zombie ring. Infected is now available. If so inclined, you can purchase it here http://amzn.to/GRawxl. This is the description from the Amazon page:
Part one of the terrifying Dead Land Trilogy begins.
It looked like a flu. Until the first patient woke up. Violent. Hungry for flesh and blood.
People in the small town of Anderson are saying the military let loose a bioweapon.
Soon the hospital and town will be overrun with the undead.
Emma Ross is the sheriff in Anderson. She will lead a band of townspeople in a desperate fight to survive against the horde of newly risen that threaten to overtake the town. And spread the Infection.
An action-packed novel from the author of Evil Harvest and The Hollow.
Look for Book Two of The Dead Land Trilogy Summer 2012.
Infected was intended to be a standalone, telling the story of a zombie infestation in a small town. As I neared the end of the book, I felt there was a bigger story to tell. Hence turning it into a trilogy. I'm at work on Book Two right now. Look for June or July release. If you've picked up a copy of Infected, thanks for reading.
