Days with the Undead Blog Tour: Round Up #1

Well hello everyone! I hope everyone has been well since the last time we posted.

Right now Julianne Snow is touring around the internet on her whirlwind tour, promoting her book Days with the Undead: Book One. Have you been keeping up? Not to worry if you haven’t – here is a round-up of all the sites that she’s visited since March 10.

March 10 – Colin F. Barnes

For the Love of Horror (guest post) –

My name is Julianne Snow and I love Horror.

I’m not ashamed to admit that either. Some of my earliest experiences are entrenched in the seat of all that horror entails. My first memory is of opening my eyes as a young toddler and witnessing the underbelly of a large Daddy Long Legs spider; its eight legs radiating outward over my field of vision. I can remember being frozen, unable to move, unable to swat the spider off of my face…

March 11 – Nina D’Arcangela

An Interview –

ND: Describe for us the difference in Julie’s emotional state between day 3 and day 31. Did she lose hope at any point and come to see the world as a bleak place that she must endure with only the possibility of making it through to yet another day of hell?

JS: As the voice of Days with the Undead, everything that you feel while reading is from Julie’s point of view. In the beginning, you know that she is rattled. It’s an obvious reaction to what the world is coming to. There is an overall aura of detachment radiating from her in certain regards, a throwback from her analytical life before the end of the world began unfolding in her backyard. The main emotion throughout the book is one of survival. Some might not view survival as an emotion but I maintain that it is – it’s that thing that keeps you going, the will to live. Hope also plays a role, albeit a much smaller one…

How Easy is it to Write Unease? (guest post) –

To write? Or not to write? That really isn’t a question for me. I have to write. It’s a feeling that consumes me. There are times when I should be sleeping or catching up with friends… Where can you find me instead? Either furiously typing on my computer or at my desk, scribing out a story longhand.

There have been some stories that end up being tedious to get out. You start off with a great idea, only to have it disintegrate as you lay the words down.

Others come together so beautifully that you sit back and wonder where a particular phrase came from. Sometimes you are just able to hit the emotions and imagery on the head and it reads exactly how you saw it happening in your head.

There is an interesting facet of writing that deserves some consideration – how does an author write stellar horror without scaring themselves? How do they evoke the reactions of fear and unease without falling victim to their own words?

March 13 – Shah Wharton

An Interview –

1. What’s your idea of total happiness?
My idea of total happiness would be to have the ability to write whenever I wanted without having to worry about making enough money to live. Writing is my passion and I would love my life to be filled with more of it.

2. Which trait do you most deplore about yourself?
I think it’s the fact that I procrastinate a lot. I could be getting so much done if I could focus and not find other things around the house that need doing.

Could You Really Kill a Zombie? (guest post) –

The idea of a Zombie is an interesting concept. It goes against all that we know to be true about life and death. Even the term “Living Dead” is an oxymoron. Yet we’ve come to accept that it’s an actual possibility.

Let’s run this sucker down, just for fun.

We all like Zombies, right? We enjoy reading about them, writing about them, even watching them in films. Many of us even maintain that we would survive a Zombie attack if it were to happen to us. Under the right and favourable circumstances, of course. But is that the actual truth?

My Addiction to Post-Apocalyptic Fiction (guest post) –

I love it. I love it. I L-O-V-E it!

Post-apocalyptic fiction can take many forms and exists within a subgenre of science fiction. It deals with the end of civilization and that end can come from an almost infinite combination of events. All of those causes must culminate in an existential catastrophe and can vary from an impact event to extraterrestrial attack to dysgenics or even divine judgment. Quite simply, something happens that impacts a civilization to the point that it collapses.

From the fallout of a nuclear event, to weather patterns transforming the landscape, to a desolate wasteland, to a mutated virus that causes the dead to walk the earth again; post-apocalyptic fiction is incredibly diverse. That diversity opens the door for a multitude of fans which only helps to propel its popularity into even higher realms.
