Wow! 6 books is a tall task. How long did it take you to finish the series?

R.S. Merritt | 12 comments It was about a year. I was actually sitting here right now thinking about starting a new Zombie series after I wrap up this Fantasy series I've been working on. Now I'm thinking I might add a Book 7 to the Zournal series as my next project instead. I really love the characters and the world in that series and am just wondering if it'd be weird trying to do another one since it's going to be similar in many aspects. It'd be fun revisiting that one and doing something like 'One Year Later'. There was a lot of stuff still going on in that world where we left off at. I've always liked reading about the way people survive after the world's ended.

That's very interesting. I'm sure any readers wouldn't mind a Book 7 :) Or if not, you could do some kind of spin-off

R.S. Merritt | 12 comments From the Author of "The Zournal" series comes a horrifying new series that'll grab you by the throat and take you on a crazy thrill ride through the Apocalypse. In this first book stand with our heroes as Zombies overrun the planet. Watch as normal people have to deal with extraordinary circumstances. How far will they go to protect their loved ones? The Apocalypse will cause some to stand a little taller. They'll need to reach deep within themselves to keep their humanity intact. Others will collapse under the weight of it. Still others will seize on it to prey on their fellow man.

Fast paced and written with an eye for detail. You'll really be able to see yourself with the characters in this story. Fighting the fight along with them. Experience Zombies!

Zombies! Book 2: Against The Current now available on Amazon

Steve wakes up one morning after a horrible couple of weeks in which he's lost his girlfriend, his job, his savings and the majority of his self-respect. Dragging himself out of bed he sleepily wanders over to the window with a warm bottled water and a handful of Advil. Looking out of his apartment window he sees people running around crazily and a bunch of burning shrubbery. He decides to go back to sleep and see if it all goes away. When he wakes up the next time it turns out the view from his fourth floor apartment wasn't a nightmare. Armed with a blunt samurai sword and some stolen steak knives he ventures out into the fray.

These aren't your standard Zombies but Steve isn't your standard Zombie fighter either. Join him in book 1 as he heads out to check on his parents and try to survive in a world that's gone crazy...
