A Practical Guide on How to Properly Stalk Your Favorite Zombie Authors #SummerZombie

by Jay Wilburn

Let’s face it. With fame, comes a certain level of interest from fans. Zombie fans are a special group too. Sometimes special in a scary way, but mostly in a good way.

You may be wondering how to properly stalk your favorite zombie authors. There are a number of things which have been tried. Following them around in disguise has been done. Mailing them creepy things too. Sure, you can kidnap them, break their legs, and force them to rewrite one of their lesser quality works. That might be good for the genre in a lot of ways, but aren’t you tired of being the same old boring stalker? I mean where do you even go from there?! Well, jail. The answer is jail, but moving on …

It’s time to up your fan game and I, as host of the zombie tour to end all zombie tours, am here to help with a few solid options. Let’s get started.

 

Patreon

Authors provide good, unique, exclusive material on their Patreon pages available to no one else and nowhere else. Many times this content and exclusive access is available for as little as a dollar a month. That is a cheap entry point for a really committed stalker.

Newsletters

Good stalkers should always subscribe to newsletters. They contain giveaways, drawings, special announcements, news, pictures, and more. You have to be kept up to date, if you are serious about being a superfan.

Armand Rosamilia has a great monthly newsletter.

Fan Clubs, Groups, Websites, and Author Pages
