Overview

Welcome to Bill Howard's 10 Minutes From Home: Episode 1 - A post-apocalyptic love story, focusing on one man's journey through a world of the undead.

This is part ONE of the eight part series. Each week a new episode will be released until the story reaches its dramatic conclusion in week 8.

Here's the synopsis for Episode One:

When a viral outbreak hits Toronto, Denny Collins and his best friend Thom Washington find themselves trapped over 100 km from Denny’s home in a town called Pontypool, where his wife and daughter remain. As the streets teem with violence, they must find safety, before finding a way out of the now deadly metropolis.

"Bill Howard's 10 Minutes from Home might start out like a standard apocalyptic zombie novel, with scenes that could be taken straight out of a Romero script, but it slowly unfolds into a well narrated love story about one of the most harrowing experiences a couple might have to face. Bonus for those of you located in Ontario: there are plenty of references to genre hot spots, such as the town of Pontypool and Toronto's Bloor Cinema."
- Jessa Sobczuk – Rue Morgue Magazine

“Heartbreaking and soulful, 10 Minutes from Home is one gut-wrenching read I will not forget. This is one meta-cool book!"
- John Palisano, author of NERVES

“A purely cinematic, heart-pounding and thrilling story.”
– Susan Curran, Director of Marketing, Anchor Bay Canada

While there was one issue with "continuity" (at one point the friend was in the car trying to get the engine to turn over, then they both jumped into the car at the same time) and one use of a wrong word (fair instead of fare), overall this was well done. Description, grammar, and story were all great. Hopefully character development will continue along with the story line. If the next few installments continue in this vein
