Book Blitz: ZIA, The Teenage Zombie & The Undead Diaries by Angela Scott
ZIA, The Teenage Zombie & the Undead Diaries
Release date: September 20th 2015
Zia would give anything to be a typical teenager... again. Heck, she’d settle for being a vampire or smelly werewolf, but a member of the walking dead? The lowliest of all the monsters?
Noway! Nothing is worse than being a skin-sloughing, limb-losing, maggot-housing, brain-craving undead girl. Nothing. It wouldn’t be so bad if humans didn’t insist on “Living Impaireds” wearing bands to keep their insatiable appetites in check. And if LIs want to coexist with humans, then rules must be followed, no matter how ludicrous they might seem. Why do undead teenagers have to go to high
Zia does her best to blend in and go unnoticed, but when a new group of LIs are bused in
from another school and she finds herself part of a growing horde, all bets are off. Besides, rules are meant to be broken — especially when an unbeating heart is pulled in two different directions.
It doesn’t matter whether they’re dead, alive, or somewhere in between
... boys are so very, very weird. So weird.
They have to be the weirdest creatures of all.
Then why do I still want a boyfriend?
About the Author
I hear voices. Tiny fictional people sit on my shoulders and whisper their stories in
my ear. Instead of medicating myself, I decided to pick up a pen, write down everything those voices tell me, and turn it into a book. I’m not crazy. I’m an author.
For the most part, I write contemporary Young Adult novels. However, through a writing
exercise that spiraled out of control, I found myself writing about zombies terrorizing
the Wild Wild West — and loving it. My zombies don’t sparkle, and they definitely don’t cuddle. At least, I wouldn’t suggest it.
I live on the benches of the beautiful Wasatch Mountains with two lovely children, one teenager, and a very patient husband. I graduated from Utah State University with a B.A. degree in English, not because of my love for the written word, but because it was the only major that didn’t require math. I can't spell, and grammar is my arch nemesis. But they gave me the degree, and there are no take backs.
As a child, I never sucked on a pacifier; I chewed on a pencil. I’ve been writing that long. It has only been the past few years that I’ve pursued it professionally, forged relationships with other like-minded individuals, and determined to make a career out of it.
