Z Is For...


Z is for…


Zombies
“My friend "M" says the irony of being a zombie is that everything is funny, but you can't smile, because your lips have rotted off.”― Isaac Marion

Zombie Haiku
“Blood is really warm / 
it's like drinking hot chocolate / 
but with more screaming.”
― Ryan Mecum

*************************************
In case you didn't know, zombies always require a two-fer...just because.

I hope you've enjoyed my cats and quotes for the A to Z April challenge! I know I have. Thank you for stopping by! :)

Find the entire A to Z sign up list here and happy hopping!


A Dragon's Lament, book 2 of my Jewels of Chandra series will officially release on Monday, May 5th! If you'd like to help me build a buzz any time that week, please add your name to the Linky List below and I'll send you the information! Thank you for helping make it a success!

  1. Like drinking hot chocolate,
    but with more screaming,
    and less calories.
    I have loved romping through the alphabet with you, with Jezebel, all the moggies - and Ron.
    Thank you.

    1. EC - I've loved having you along for the road trip through...I was going to say Oz, but as in Wizard, not AU. ;)
      I wonder what Jez could do with screaming hot chocolate? I'll need to ponder the possibilities.

  2. And so have I, Elephant's Child. You, Jezebel, the moggies and River are always great fun to be with. I think we could easily deal with any zombie foolish enough to come our way.

    1. Ron - Yes, we'd be a mighty force against the zombies...unless we become them. Oh, dear, I might have given Jez a few ideas...

  5. Zombie cats, now that's something to be scared of, plus they are low to the ground and need to be watched out for down there.

  12. Yay, River! Congratulations on finishing the challenge. Those quotes made me laugh out loud. I don't typically offer to help promote books, but I like you, and I've been a lousy blog follower (though I love our facebook banter, especially when MLSwift chimes in) and I'm happy to give a shout out this coming week. I'm excited for you. The cover's beautiful. Woohoo!

    1. Thank you so much, Robyn! I know, I seem to be able to only focus on one media at a time...and Facebook has the most cat pictures so it wins. MLS is a hoot and so are you! :)
