by Jesse Petersen
Paperback, 244 pages
Published September 1st 2010 by Orbit
A heartwarming tale of terror in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. Meet Sarah and David. Once upon a time they met and fell in love. But now they're on the verge of divorce and going to couples' counseling. On a routine trip to their counselor, they notice a few odd things - the lack of cars on the highway, the missing security guard, and the fact that their counselor, Dr. Kelly, is ripping out her previous client's throat. Meet the Zombies. Now, Sarah and David are fighting for survival in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. But, just because there are zombies, doesn't mean your other problems go away. If the zombies don't eat their brains, they might just kill each other...

Q&A Week 2

Here's what I'm working with! 
*sigh* My friend is out of town and I didn't get the pictures taken before he left, so my pictures only contain the items. But the bright side of things is I will include some of his commentary in the end.

1.In Chapter 6, Sarah and Dave raid Amanda’s apartment for guns… When they come out they run into their super, Mr. Gonzales, when he tries to attract Sarah: What does she hit? Do you have one of these? You could totally bash some Zombie brains with one!Show me whatcha got! If you don’t have one of these, then anything that you would find in a hallway of an apartment building! (good luck!) lol 
Yep it's right outside my door.  That line on the side connects to the alarm, so when the glass breaks the place will light up like a Christmas tree.  So I will be sure to expedite the bashing quickly before the noise draws more zombies to our location.

2. In Chapter 7, Sarah and David are watching a news report of the zombie attacks when the doctor on TV attacks the reporter… The news crew steps in and starts bashing the zombie with a _______, grab the nearest similar object (whatever’s handy) that you would use if you were attacked at WORK!

If a zombie catch me at work in my home studio, he/she will be sorely mistaken.  I AM NOT THE ONE.  I've got sewing machines, knitting needles, shears,...but I'm reaching for my store front grade male mannequin.  BRING IT!

3. Chapter 8… Amanda, Sarah and Dave are preparing to head out of town, and while they’re getting in the car, three zombies attack them! Sarah bashes one with the butt of her shot gun as instinct takes over, so whatcha got?

You’re getting in your car, fleeing the city- zombies attack, no guns or knives… What are you going to use to defend yourself??
Don't ask me why I had a ratchet strap in my car!  *lol*  Soldiers are always prepared.

My friend is still on board with me to reading aloud so he can follow the story also. We got really excited when the violence broke out.

Here's some of his jargon: Weapons? I'm snacking zombies legs off and knocking another's head off. What would I use? I'm using body parts. I'm going HAMMER TIME.....ancient Japanese Wu Shu on their ass. All I need is some fingernail clippers. With their flesh decomposing, that gives ease. Pow! Wow! *martial arts reenactments* Yeah! That's what I'd do! I'll F*** a zombie up!

The only thing that'll scare me is a gangsta zombie. *DMX voice* "Aye yo B**** I want some brains. *growling*

I laughed so hard I had stomach cramps and still couldn't stop.

4. In Chapter 9 & 10 there aren’t any zombie killings… That we could replicate!!!  So, give me a couple of your favorite quotes from Chapters 5-10!!!

But my shock at the ridiculousness of her appearance faded as she let out a roar ad from behind her came five more stripper zombies, like she was their leader calling for a charge.  (pg 93)
I should have known that having "end of the world" sex wouldn't  solve our problems.    Though, it was pretty great and I highly recommend it.  It's one of the big benefits of an apocalypse that no one tells you about.  It just makes everything...better, because you know it might be the last time every time. (pg 78)



  1. "end of the world sex" is one of the things I am definitely looking forward to, LOL! I love those quotes. The chapter headings of this book always crack me up the most. And seriously, I love that your husband gets all into it. My husband just uses it to buy bullets. LOL! And I think I died laughing at the male mannequin. Seriously, awesome!

    1. Yeah I talk a mean game but that mannequin is really heavy. I'll have to hope once my adrenalin starts pumping, I'll get some of that new found strength in order to lift the thing. :D

  2. Your husband is a riot! He is right on two accords: First a gangsta zombie might have things on him that could explode, shoot, snag on their own and I would be frightened if any zombie broke out in gangsta speak. :) :)

    1. Yeah that's the same thing I said after I caught my breath between giggling. A gangster zombie is more likely to shoot you, while he still has his facilities, before he eat you. :)

  3. OMG! "All I need is some fingernail clippers!" Blahaha! I got cramps from laughing too! I love that you and the hubs are reading together. That's so sweet, and obviously, you two are having a lot of fun, too!

    P.S. I can't say this enough, love your blog design.

    1. Thanks! Oh geez, he's peering over my shoulder and grinning ear to ear. I fear he thinks he's got a chance at stand up comedy. I need to nip this because I like him better as a chef. And *pressing send* before he makes me delete it...

  4. LMAO DMX zombie would be HILARIOUSSSS!!! Also, I love the ratchet strap! Would be fun to swing at some zombie heads!

    1. For sure. I dropped that thing only toe once. Ouch! Talk about pain. That strap is nothing to play with. Zombies beware!
