2013 Best in Horror

What Horror Looks Like has posted nominations for the 2013 Best in Horror category! The most exciting part is that three out of the four finalists are zombie novels. All hail zombie books!! Of course, the second most exciting part is that my little zombie book Jordan’s Brains: A Zombie Evolution was chosen as one of the finalists. I feel honored to be nominated with talented writers like Cedric Nye, Phillip Tomasso, and Mark Matthews. Here are the four nominees for the 2013 Best in Horror award:

Vaccination: A Zombie Novel, by Phillip Tomasso III

What if the H7N9 vaccination wasn’t just a preventative measure against swine flu? It seemed like the flu came out of nowhere and yet, in no time at all the government manufactured a vaccination. Were lab workers diligent, or could the virus itself have been man-made? Chase McKinney works as a dispatcher at 9-1-1. Taking emergency calls, it becomes immediately obvious that the entire city is infected with the walking dead. His first goal is to reach and save his two children. Could the walls built by the U.S.A. to keep out illegal aliens, and the fact the Mexican government could not afford to vaccinate their citizens against the flu, make the southern border the only plausible destination for safety?

The Road to Hell is Paved with Zombies, by Cedric Nye

Jango doesn’t know it, but his vacation is about to go right to hell. However, the growing hordes of ravening undead aren’t the only problems Jango is facing. His mind is breaking apart, and he is losing his grip on reality. With bloodthirsty panache, Jango kills humans and zombies alike with whatever weapons
he can find. As his mind splinters, and then breaks,you will find out that THE ROAD TO HELL IS PAVED WITH ZOMBIES. Get your gear, because THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE HAS BEGUN!!

Jordan’s Brains: A Zombie Evolution, by J. Cornell Michel

Jordan is a psychotic yet friendly zombie expert whose gender is never revealed. Having prepared for the zombie apocalypse since childhood, Jordan is thrilled when hordes of the infected undead finally invade. With a bug-out bag and a confident grin, Jordan leaves the safety of the psychiatric hospital and wanders alone into the zombie-infested streets to rescue family and strangers alike. Everything seems perfect until Jordan’s loved ones start dying, and Jordan has to face the harsh reality that the zombie apocalypse isn’t going according to plan.

On the Lips of Children, by Mark Matthews

Meet Macon. Tattoo artist. Athlete. Family man. He’s planning to run a marathon, but the event becomes something terrible. During a warm-up run, Macon falls prey to a bizarre man and his wife who dwell in an underground drug-smuggling tunnel. They raise their twin children in a way Macon couldn’t imagine: skinning unexpecting victims for food and money. And Macon, and his family, are next.

  1. Excellent Post my friend & congrats on such an amazing accomplishment. We’re taking turns with your book right now. When we’re doing a review, we both read, so I’m looking forward to my turn!! Johney has me all hyped up about your book & I know he would never recommend something unless he absolutely loved it. And in usual Inion N. Mathair fashion, Inion isn’t allowed to say anything to me so that she doesn’t sway my opinion of the book or ruin the read thru spoilers. Yikes….hurry up Inion!!! lol. Congrats & look forward to stopping by in the future. We weren’t even aware of this competition. Who sponsors it & what date does it start. Had we of known, we would have entered From the Dark & Twisted Mind. Any who, we just added some books to our list thanks to your blog. My son being a huge Zombie fan, these will make for nice Christmas gifts. 🙂

  2. Thanks so much! I hope you enjoy Jordan’s Brains. I’m in the middle of The Perfect 7, and I absolutely love it!! I was hooked from the very first page. I was excited about the Best in Horror nomination. I didn’t even know that I was nominated until the nice folks at What Horror Looks Like told me about it. Here is a link to the website: http://www.whathorrorlookslike.com/ The contest already started, and it ends December 22nd. You should check out the website because they review and post about horror books. I’m sure they’d love to find out more about From the Dark & Twisted Mind!
