ZURVIVAL TIPS: Functional Weapons…

I first saw this weapon a number of years ago and I have to say, it made just as much sense back then that it does now!

Stylish and functional!

ZTATE OF THE UNDEAD ADDRESS: Underwhelmed | #TWD

I’ve been a fan of The Walking Dead since the show premièred on AMC in 2010. Heck, I didn’t even complain when we spent an entire season stuck on Hershel’s farm seemingly doing nothing…

But this season, with the introductions of new groups and the challenges that come with that, I can’t help but feel a little underwhelmed. Maybe it’s the way that the story is unfolding—like we don’t really get a moment to develop a connection, either good or bad, with the new characters because the episodes are presented in such a way to keep us slightly in the dark.

How are you finding this season?

ZTATE OF THE UNDEAD ADDRESS: Why ZA? | #Zombieholics

Hello, my name is Julianne and I am a Zombieholic.

(Hears the chorus of other Zombieholics in the room chanting “Welcome Julianne”)

It’s been way to long since I stood in front of you all and just talked. I’ll admit it, I love zombies. Everything about them. Admittedly, I wouldn’t want to meet one in a dark alley without some sort of weapon on me, but that’s for a different post.

So why did I start Zombieholics Anonymous? I wanted a place for others who can’t get enough of the genre to come together and share their experiences. If you’re a writer, it could be a place to share your work, and a place for the readers to connect with you. A place for everyone to discuss the different elements that exist within the genre and for you to declare, in front of the world what your favourites are.

Me? I love the original Night of the Living Dead. I think Romero had a lot to say with that film and while it was released 10 years before I was born, it speaks to me. I saw it when I was 6 and it opened up a whole new world – one that I am proud to call myself a part of. I write in the genre and currently have two books released. I run a very successful website that jump started my series and publish pieces of flash fiction each and every week. Zombies have been good to me and I’m not ashamed to say it.

So join a meeting, tell the rest of the community about your addiction. We’re all in this together. One shambling step at a time!

ZURVIVAL TIPS: Honesty | #LittleLies #BigLies

Is honesty always the best policy?

After the end, it might not be…

Are you going to tell other survivors about the sweet camp you have just over the next ridge, full of food , clean water, and other amenities without knowing if you can trust them first? Hell no! You’re going to make out like the world has got you as far down as it has them until you decide if their skill set will benefit you and your group.

But that’s a choice you’re going to have to make for yourself… Will your lies be big, or little?

ZTATE OF THE UNDEAD ADDRESS: Where It All Began… | #Genesis #Zombieholic

Today I’m going to take you back to the beginning… To the beginning of Zombieholics Anonymous and to the beginning of my love of the genre. Consider this my confession and testimonial to all of the other Zombieholics out there…

Hello, my name is Julianne and I am a Zombie-holic.

(Hears the chorus of other Zombieholics in the room chanting “Welcome Julianne”).

It’s been less than five minutes since I last thought about Zombies, or read something about them, or heck even wrote about them. It all started a very long time ago. I was six and home for the day. I had a fever and my mother hadn’t wanted to send me to school. Instead she bundled me up on the couch in front of the television with the remote control and told me to call her if I needed anything.

Unbeknownst to my mother, she was about to unleash more monsters upon me. My first ill-advised exposure to the horror genre occurred at the age of four when my parents let my two older brothers and myself watch Alien with them. All I can say is I lasted longer than to two of them combined before I ran screaming from the room. But I digress…

With remote control in hand, I flicked through the cartoons, not finding much of anything I hadn’t seen already and wanted to watch again. I became embroiled at one point within the jagged plotlines of a soap opera before stumbling upon a grainy black and white movie that had just started.

That movie was George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead. And it scarred me for life – in a good way.

Have you ever watched something so profound in your formative years that you’ve never forgotten it? Both of the horror movies I watched at such an early age represent the beginning of my love for the feeling that fear can evoke. And Night of the Living Dead opened up a world larger than any I had ever imagined.

From that moment forward, I would do my best to watch (albeit secretly) any movie that contained the undead, and read anything that I could get my hands on that contained the subject matter. The librarian in my elementary school did his best at trying to satiate my hunger for books. To this day I can walk into that school and still find books that likely have no business being on the shelves where young children can find them.

Heck, I even started to write about them. Back in those days, I didn’t have any idea that I wanted to become a published author – I was just recording the types of stories that I wanted to read. They are rudimentary at best, but some of them contain quite a few twisted ideas I have already used in one tale or another.

Days with the Undead was born on an occasion when I needed to process a few demons. It’s a journal of survival told exclusively from the perspective of the main character. What better way to work out my own struggles than to place it against the backdrop of the undead? Zombies are the best reflection of what is wrong with ourselves. They show us the side of ourselves we’d rather not admit to having and that’s part of the reason I love them so much.

So you might ask why I’m here, standing in front of you and telling you my story. Well, I needed a place to share my own experiences and find a little common ground with other addicts out there. They are coming and when they do, I figured it was best to surround myself with others who understand and appreciate just what they are. Thank you.
