My Giveaway!

Latter-Day of the Dead by Kevin Krohn

I’ve obviously gone on and on about this book, so I am eager to give it away to someone to enjoy it as much as I did.

 

Excerpt: Harrowing cries escaped the contorted faces of our flock. End of Days was a known truth but never a faced reality. Once the madness broke…we feared it would never subside.

From my review: At the end of the book I kept looking down at the progress bar and feeling very apprehensive and even a little anxious that the content was running out while the action and intensity was heating up. At the end I literally said out loud, “You did not end it there.”

Consuming The Walking Dead! Just Can’t Get Enough.

I think I’m an introvert at heart.

Sure, sure, I am capable of socializing and engaging with people, and rather well… but give me the option, and I will sit with myself and think (and think) and think (and think) about a whole bunch of things.  Every once in a while, I get stuck on something and I truly pour my heart and soul into it.  I research and I “network” all about these topics.

When my daughter was diagnosed with leukemia, I researched for hours.  I linked up with people whose young children were going through treatment or had gone through treatment similar to my daughter’s and I read and read.  When I was pregnant for the second time after a cesarean section with my first, I drove myself, my husband, my family, and my friends absolutely batshit with my inability to stop. talking. about it.

My current mental obsession?  AMC’s The Walking Dead.  Man, I love this show.  It is hands-down the goriest visual entertainment I have ever experienced … and it’s on basic cable!  I’m terrified by it, I am stressed out by it, and I am fascinated with it.

Given that zombies are not real, each show or book on the topic is required to set up its own rules and its own lore.  I’m one of those sticklers for accuracy.  Those annoying people that says, “Wait, if they’re not able to figure out how to open a door, how did that one just get inside?” and then I go online and I seek out others who’ve found the same holes that I have, and then we fanwank.

At the moment, my two favorite places for both fanwank, continuity, digging deeper into plotholes, etc, are:

TelevisionWithoutPity Forums, and Roamers & Lurkers

Are there any other forums out there you know of for The Walking Dead?  Do you participate with others regarding your favorite shows?
