This was intended to be a video blog, which is why it's so terribly late. My office is crammed full of books that I don't have enough shelf space for and decorations for the Prombie Apocalypse.... plus, I look like a real life zombie right now, due to a severe case of sleep deprivation. It's one part insomnia, one part todolistitis (I'm no doctor, but this condition seems pretty legit to me), and one part night owl kiddo (what can I say, he has my genes).
If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, then you probably have an idea of what this is all about, but either way, here are all the nitty gritty details....
My new book, CRAZY EX-GHOULFRIEND, is out!!! Woot! It's available on Amazon, Kindle, Nook, and a zillion other places. It's also available at Sedalia Reader's World.
To celebrate the release, I decided to do more than just a book signing. This may be my fourth novel, but it's my first YA novel, and it's my first venture away from the comfort zone of my Lana series. I wanted to do something BIG. I also wanted to do something to give back to the community that I grew up in. There isn't a lot for teens to do in my little hometown, and with Halloween just around the corner and the macabre nature of my new book, a zombie themed prom seemed like a great idea!
And that's how the Prombie Apocalypse came to be...
The party is for teens as well as zombie lovers of all ages. It will take place on Saturday, October 19th, 2013, from 6-10pm at Convention Hall in Liberty Park, Sedalia, MO. The tickets are $8 at Sedalia Reader's World. There will be refreshments, karaoke, and a photo booth. We'll also be hosting a Zombie Walk-Off contest that Stone Laser Imaging is designing a trophy for. And we'll be naming a zombie king, queen, prince, and princess. There is still time to upload and vote for nominees on the Prombie Apocalypse Facebook page. Nominees can also be voted for via the tear-off stubs on the event tickets. The SFCC graphic design vo-tech seniors have also submitted tee shirt designs to be voted for on the event page. The winning design will be printed on shirts to be sold at the event. All profit from the ticket and shirt sales will be going towards purchasing new books for the Sedalia Public Library.
Additional brain donors (sponsors) include Preferred Properties of Sedalia, Kay's Bridal & Tuxedo, Woods Supermarket & Pharmacy, The Gallery Salon & Spa, Academy of Salon Professionals, Sedalia News Journal, 92.3 Bob FM, and Bilan Gomez of Bee's Knees Home Bakery.
