Overview

This book has great zombie action and has been a constant fixture on many of the eBook best seller charts.

Everything seems to go wrong when zombies invade the small town of Sigel. Join Max Talbot as he goes on a breakneck paced journey to save his uncle Jebediah. This book has been described as oozing Redneck and a Dukes of Hazzard like twist to the zombie apocalypse, so break out your favorite flannel shirt and come along for the ride.

This story was written as fan fiction and later posted on Mark Tufo's website. The zombies in this story are modeled after the ones from his stories.

After reading this short story please look for my latest book series. The first is called, "Parasite; The True Story of the Zombie Apocalypse." It's not only a zombie apocalypse novel but it explains the science involved in the dead coming to life.

As one reviewer stated, "Such good story telling. Zombielicious. I am remembering biology class as they explain why people are turning into zombies and clues to stop the infection. Adventure, politicians, lawyers and scientist * oh my *... Very good book."

Meet the Author

Doug Ward currently lives in Western Pennsylvania. He is a graduate of Slippery Rock University. His BFA is in Fine Art. Doug spends much of his time doing oil paintings which incorporate mythology and science.I write about parasitic zombies. They feel (to me) more scientifically grounded than other types. It's also pretty scary how many parasitic creatures are inside us at this very moment. Some have even bonded with us for so long that they are actually a part of our DNA.Parasites have been known to take over their hosts. A few years ago my wife called me from a friends house and said that a mouse kept trying to snuggle with the cat. Literally nuzzling up to the cats face. I quickly informed her that the mouse was infected by a parasite and that they needed to remove it from the house immediately.The parasite wanted to be eaten by the cat so it could continue it's lifecycle in the bowls of the unfortunate creature. This flatworm not only controls mice but it can infect humans as well.I have blended many scientific ideas into Parasite, which I plan to be a three book series.Saving Jebediah is a fun piece of fan fiction I wrote for a contest Mark Tufo was having. Although I edited it to make it cross over with my book series it has a little different zombie types than I normally use.

    Pretty good

    >>Very well done! Descriptive, interesting, and a little humor. If I did not know this was fan-fiction before I started, I never would have guessed. I hope TUFO gets to read and enjoy this story, too. Looking forward to more from this author. Read it, you will be glad you did.

    Mr. Reaper. Please don't take this wrong. I love reading zombie books. I have read alot of them. And I love reading new authors.

    Whoever did you editing, didn't do so good. The mistakes were just dumb mistakes. I have read reviews for other books and people are very harsh with their opinions. They don't see past the mistakes to actually give the book a chance.
    But I do. Auto correct in my head. Lol I would like to see this book go on. Please give Kenneth the will to continue. Thank you and good luck
    Congratulations on your first book and much sucess to you.
