Spotlight On interview of Armand Rosamilia
Summer of Zombie 2016
Q: State your name for the record, sir.
Q: What is your latest release? … talking about books here … zombie books …
Q: Describe the book for us.
Continuing the Dying Days series! Darlene Bobich, the Zombie Killer, is on a mission to save her family. Can she succeed, even as more obstacles are thrown in her way: survivors bent on their own selfish needs, evolving zombies and the rotting world around her?
Q: Are you asking me or telling me? I’ll have to read it to find out. I just finished Dying Days 5. I’ll pick up book 6 and let you know as soon as I know. Tell us about Darlene.
Darlene Bobich, a regular woman trying to stay alive through the zombie apocalypse. She’s seen many of her friends and family die along the way. It’s hardened her but she still retains a part of her humanity… but it’s beginning to slip…
Q: Your zombies have a bit of a twisted twist. Explain what makes them different.
My zombies don’t just want to bite you, they want to sexually violate you. It’s dubbed extreme zombie fiction for a reason.
Q: How does this book fit in with the rest of the series?
The sixth book in the main Dying Days series. Darlene and the other survivors have to keep moving or they’ll be caught and killed.
Q: How does it change or advance the series?
The progression of Darlene as well as the evolution of the zombies themselves will keep readers guessing what comes next… at least, that’s the goal, right?
Q: I try not to make goals. That’s why I’m here interviewing zombie authors … … … What were we talking about? Oh, zombies, right. If you had to put a warning label on the series, what would it say?
EXTREME ZOMBIE FICTION
Q: What do you want readers to take away from this work?
My hope is for a reader to love the series enough to keep reading and want to know when Dying days 7 will be released, as well as hook them to read all of my other fiction.
