Z is for a Zombie Contest

Contest is over! Corinne you've been chose. I tweeted you. Thanks everyone else for commenting and helping me close out the challenge. It was a blast.

Well it's the end of the challenge and I made it. I hadn't been sure. A post every day and the theme letters from the alphabet? Yeah, I was worried I may stumble on a few letters. I didn't. Thanks to my abundance of stories and desire to practice query writing, a little inspiration and some insanity I got every letter.

Now it's the last letter: Z. I was going to have a guest poster but unfortunately those plans fell through and leaving me improvising. Maybe I should talk about zombies at some point. That way this last post is somewhat on topic. I don't really have much to say on the subject. I've read a few zombie books - ones were the zombies were decaying monsters and others were they were simply reanimated corpses with thoughts and feelings. Melissa, who was supposed to be my guest, has been writing a fun little online story featuring zombies. Muhhhh, A Zombie Love story. It has a nice little twist on the genre.

Anyways, thanks for hanging in with me through this challenge. I made a few new friends and found some new blogs to read. For all your patience in sticking by my side I have a contest; all you have to do is comment to enter. Doesn't matter where you live either, I'll ship the prize anywhere.

Up for grabs is World War Z An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks. Contest will be open until May 7th. Thanks again for hanging with me this month. It was a blast and I'll be sure to do it again next year (granted someone remind me.)
