I'm serializing my first novel, THE LOVING DEAD (with zombies and a
Zeppelin, out from Night Shade in July), online for free starting today,
Monday March 8th. My friend and Locus coworker Tim Pratt is also serializing a new Marla Mason novel, BROKEN MIRRORS, starting Monday March 8th. Locus editors do it for free!
What people are saying about THE LOVING DEAD:
"Zombies are all over the place right now, but trust me, you've NEVER
read a zombie novel like this! Amelia Beamer's THE LOVING DEAD is about
zombies, all right, but it's zombies with Xanax, zeppelins, Trader
Joe's, iPhone apps, sex, humor, adventure, NPR, IKEA, and Indiana Jones!
It's a rollercoaster ride of a read and a true original!" -- Connie
Willis, New York Times Bestselling author of BLACKOUT.
"THE LOVING DEAD is really kind of hot, in a very creepy way. Read
it. You know you'd love you some sweet zombie sumpin' sumpin'. Buy
it, bitches! Ride this zombie zeppelin of love like there's no
tomorrow." -- Christopher Moore, New York Times Bestselling author of
