Shambling Off into the Cold Darkness to Raise More Dead

by Jay Wilburn

We have come to the conclusion of another great blog tour. Winter of Zombie 2017 was a pleasure to host. I was very impressed with the work and range of these authors. The authors and featured works involved were well worth promoting. We have a lot of exciting stories, ongoing adventures, stand-alones, anthologies, a cookbook/ survival guide, and stories coming to an end for readers to choose from.

Reading through so many stories each season to choose which authors and books to feature is a pleasure and a challenge. I have to find a range of stories to give fans of the tour different things to choose from. I then have to pick the best from among those different types of stories. I always end up having to pass on a few good ones to let the featured selections get some attention. Lots of tough choices, but I’m glad to have these authors before your eyes this November and hopefully their works in your hands and before your eyes through the winter and beyond. The best of the new and the veteran writers in the genre. We strive to find works and authors most of the audience have not already discovered too.

We most of all appreciate the readers. Thanks for checking out what writers in this genre have created. The audience is a vital part of the storytelling and we all appreciate you doing your part.
