WARM BODIES book trailer (OFFICIAL)

Published June 10, 2013 by Shadow Girl

This is a NOT the trailer for the movie!
It’s an ad for the novel, created by the author himself.

“R is a man with an existential crisis—he is a zombie. He shuffles through an America destroyed by war, social collapse, and the mindless hunger of his undead comrades, but he craves something more than blood and brains. He can speak just a few grunted syllables, but his inner life is deep, full of wonder and longing. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he has dreams.

After experiencing a teenage boy’s memories while consuming his brain, R makes an unexpected choice that begins a tense, awkward, and strangely sweet relationship with the victim’s human girlfriend. Julie is a blast of color in the dreary and gray landscape that surrounds R. His decision to protect her will transform not only R but also his fellow Dead, and perhaps their whole lifeless world. Scary, funny, and surprisingly poignant, Warm Bodies is about being alive, being dead, and the blurry line in between.”

SNOWMAN SHIVERS: Scary Snowmen Tales
By Mark Leslie

I found this because of Mark’s brilliant marketing & moved it towards the top of the holiday queue!

THAT OLD SILK HAT THEY FOUND : That snowman you built? He’s alive. He thinks, he speaks, and he feels. They speak to each other, since everyone else is oblivious. Telling tales of what has been, and what is to come. I will never build another snowman as long as I live.

IDES OF MARCH : What would be The Apocalypse to a snowman? Spring? As Charlie sits at his desk, doing his taxes, he learnes that the answer to this question only brings more questions.

* I strongly suggest reading the ‘Afterward’ in this book. The actual events that inspired the stories THAT OLD SILK HAT THEY FOUND and IDES OF MARCH are fascinating. I’m the type of gal who DOES watch DVD commentary, and BTS extras, and I love this part. Learning about the author, and what drives them, is just as interesting to me as the actual stories. Finding out that Mark Leslie is a Calvin & Hobbes fan, too… well, that’s just a bonus to me!

After picking up your copy of SNOWMAN SHIVERS, or anything by Mark, you should consider getting it signed! Mark is a member of the AuthorGraph community, and he just signed mine!
I need to write something up about AuthorGraph / KindleGraph, for anyone who isn’t familiar with it.
