Having conquered paranormal animal humor in his first series, Andy Zach launches into middle school superhero genre with Secret Supers. Four disabled seventh graders all get superpowers. Who knew a disability could be so useful for hiding a superpower? But the four friends, Jeremy, Dan, Kayla, and Aubrey confront problems that can't be solved by superpowers.

With his first book, "Zombie Turkeys" Andy blazed new ground in paranormal humor. The second book in his Life After Life Chronicles, "My Undead Mother-in-law" expands the zombie plague from turkeys to humans, with hilarious results. You can find both volumes on Amazon Kindle, Createspace print, and Audible audiobook editions.

Wonderful idea! Thank you!

In a sense, I already have that with zombie turkeys. They're almost impossible to kill, they are super strong, and they get stronger each time they're killed.

But I continue the idea in My Undead Mother-in-law with zombie corgies, and bulls. Then I also add cyborg animals. Then there is much more in Paranormal Privateers.

Nonetheless, your idea is worth exploring further in fiction. Ideas are the most valuable asset an author has!(less)

I usually get this when I have a scene I don't want to write. I never seem to lack ideas!

But if I don't want to write a scene, that usually means it isn't interesting. If it's not interesting to me, why should I put it in my book? So I skip the scene and move on to the next interesting point of my book.

Later, as I edit, if the scenes are disjointed, I work backward, adding details until I connect the two scenes.

Sometimes I'll get an idea that'll make the scene interesting too.(less)

“Zombies charge first, ask questions later,"

--from 'Paranormal Privateers”
Andy Zach, Paranormal Privateers: The Adventures of the Undead

“You really should do some research for a change instead of just listening to the voices in your head.”
John Ringo

“Peace through superior firepower.”
John Ringo, A Hymn Before Battle

“Zombies charge first, ask questions later,"

--from 'Paranormal Privateers”
Andy Zach, Paranormal Privateers: The Adventures of the Undead

“Human history is one prolonged and painful limping. We invariably step with one foot on the rock of justice, and with the other, we sink into the mire of deceit and self-delusion.”
Danail Hristov, The End of the Jesus Era

“Bloody ashes, woman. This isn't a metaphor for anything! It's just boots.”
Robert Jordan, Towers of Midnight
