No gerbils were harmed during the writing of this book.
The Greatest Zombie Movie Ever is so bad, it could wake the dead…
What happens when three buddies decide to make an epic zombie movie with no money, no script, and a one month shooting deadline? Possibly THE WORST ZOMBIE MOVIE EVER!
Imagine the Farrelly brothers while they were growing up, and making YouTube movies. That’s how I picture Justin and his friends – brainstorming, conflicting ideas, bickering, casting, cheese fries, and the kind of teasing you can only do with your best friends.
Struggling with location issues, actor demands, and sleep deprivation, everyone’s tempers shorten, and things escalate quickly. If the movie ever does get made, it might be at the cost of their friendship!
As usual, Jeff Strand had me audibly laughing from the beginning! No, not the beginning of the story… the beginning of the book. The preface. The ‘before you read this book WARNING’. Parts of the story reminded me of IF CHINS COULD KILL: CONFESSIONS OF A B MOVIE ACTOR by Bruce Campbell. A fond remembering of the grueling schedule, agonizing FX, and Murphy’s Laws of film making – but when you’re passionate, and with your friends… it’s worth every minute!
THE GREATEST ZOMBIE MOVIE EVER will be released by Sourcebooks Fire on March 1’st, 2016. I read an advanced copy through NetGalley. Like I’ve said to you many times before – don’t let the Teens & YA classification scare you off!
Visit Jeff Strand on Gleefully Macabre, Facebook, Twitter, and check out his books on Goodreads & Amazon.

Must. Read. This.
I adore Jeff Strand! Humor and horror mix so well IMO… but, I’m a little sick and twisted!
I really should email this, but if I don’t do it now… well, you know… Life. Stuff. Things. (haha, The Cactus chat has me feeling silly!)
If you’d like to check out NetGalley as a reader, or a ‘professional reader’, here is the link directly to THE GREATEST ZOMBIE MOVIE EVER on their site, and you can find out if you’d be interested.
As a writer – I think it is a great idea to help get advanced reviews, blurbs,etc. I talked to one author who I know that uses it, but his publisher does the posting there. I’m going to contact Jeff Strand and ask him, too.
IDK how it works if you are your own publisher… but, it can’t hurt to look!
