Book Review - Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb

I’m not a big fan of YA—I’m not a YA—but SUPER ZOMBIE JUICE MEGA BOMB is a good YA read about teenagers dealing with a nasty, localized zombie outbreak in their hometown.  The zombies mostly follow the conventional zombie paradigm and rules of engagement outlined in THE ZOMBIE SURVIVAL GUIDE by Max Brooks, save for the fortuitous discovery of an unexpected zombie vulnerability that allows construction of the Mega Bomb.  SCJMB should be enjoyable to any young adult fan of the genre.  

Link to SZJMB on Amazon, the Kindle edition, also available in paperback.

Note:  I'm going to start doing book reviews, focusing on independently published e-books.  I'm hoping that it will be something of a pre-give-back to the independent author community, because I will likely be one myself some day.

Loren Good luck with the edits. Hopefully you'll find a home for the book! Best thing to do while waiting is to jump into writing another book. You'll need the distraction!

You know, my editor (who is vastly experienced) specifically recommended that I NOT begin another book, because she wants me building up all my creative energy for the rewrite based on her report.

It was hard advice to take, but hard to ignore also given her hugely successful track record. I've compromised by writing a Historical Notes afterword and outlining a few short stories based on minor characters in the book.

Thanks for the comment.
