A New Zombie Story?

Battle

Hell yeah! THIS from this morning’s Publisher’s Marketplace:

Fiction: Sci-Fi/Fantasy: CARNIEPUNK, an anthology which combines the carnival setting and the world of urban fantasy, a place of deception, where monsters wait silently in the dark, featuring short stories by authors Rachel Caine, Jennifer Estep, Seanan McGuire, Rob Thurman, Delilah Dawson, Kelly Gay, Kevin Hearne, Mark Henry, Hillary Jacques, Jackie Kessler, Kelly Meding, Allison Pang, Nicole Peeler and Jaye Wells, to Adam Wilson at Pocket, for publication in August 2013, by Suzie Townsend at New Leaf Literary & Media.

So excited! If you’ve been following me at all on Twitter, you’ve doubtless heard a bunch of us scrambling and grumbling about getting this story done by deadline. But it’s done and, dare I say, awesomely subversive! The story is THE SWEETER THE JUICE and it’s got transexuals, drugs, druggie transexuals, zombies, weird facial staining and a pretty bizarre and, possibly, disgusting take on Carnivale. Next summer we celebrate by eating blueberries with our fingers!

Carniepunk is the brainchild of Kevin Hearne who got us all together many moons ago with the idea to set some shiz amongst the carnies. As you do. My story is completely different than the one I originally pitched, as that one has been stretched into a full-length YA novel under my pseudonym, Daniel Marks–if that tells you anything about how long this has been in the works. Anyways. Couldn’t be more happy to be included with such awesome authors! Now, to sit and wait for the cover.

All these zombie stories remind me of the first rule of dying.

What is the first rule of dying?

Lie down.
