Pre-Orders for THE UNDEAD ROAD Available Now on Amazon, and I'm Signing Off Until The New Year!

Hey guys! I've got some freaky good news. The Undead Road is now up for pre-order on Amazon! Click here if you want to get bit! If you're giving a Kindle as a gift this year, or you want to stock up on your eReading list for 2016, now's a good time to add this fun guy to your device. A strong buzz is already spreading, but I need your help to make this infection stick. The goal is to get at least 10 reviews on the day of release. So I know the next couple of weeks are busy for everyone, but if you'd like to provide a review on Amazon, I'll get you an advance copy to read right now! Just Email me for hook ups. Is it any good, you ask? Here's what these readers have said:

"For me, zombie stories are never about the killing. They're about the survivors and how people deal with the apocalypse. To this undead end, David Powers King has come up with the most original spin on zombies I've ever read."
                      - Michael Offutt, author of Slipstream and Oculus 

"King manages to make each character uniquely distinct, and to make a zombie apocalypse both laughably funny and chillingly realistic."
  - Lindzee Armstrong, author of Miss Match and Meet Your Match

Please share this on Facebook and spread the word on Twitter. If you have a list on Goodreads, you'll find the book there, too! Thank you in advance for ordering your copy and your willingness to review.

With the holidays upon us, I'm shutting the bridge down for the rest of the year. A lot has happened this year, in what has been one of the most unique and turbulent in my life. It started with the release of Woven, my debut novel, and a roller coaster ride of events that's kept me from writing as I would like, all the way to the news that I'm being laid off at the end of the year, which is only two weeks away. 

I wish I could say I've found something new and better, but all I have are a couple of leads. Nothing solid. Writing is what I'd love to be doing, but I'm nowhere close to earning enough to support a home and family. That's still my dream and I will do whatever I can to make that happen. But I also know that I can't do this alone. Any word of mouth you guys are willing to spread will get me that much closer.

The Cosmic Laire exists to reach out to you, as do the words I write. Rather than look at the 2016 calendar with an eye of despair, I will instead look at the days ahead with hope. I will find a job (if I have to flip burgers, so be it) and continue writing. I wish you all wonderful Holidays, a very Merry Christmas, and the Happiest of New Years. 

Make 2016 a great one. See you after the new year, my friends. :) 

How was 2015 for you? What are your plans for 2016? 

I'm David, and don't spoil Star Wars, I still need to see it ...


  1. Awesome!
    Don't give up hope on the job leads.
    Have a Blessed Christmas, David.

  2. Yay for preorders! I'll admit - zombie books kinda freak me out. But I wish you TONS of success with it!

  3. Congratulations on your book pre-order. You'll find a new job, no doubt, with your abilities.

  4. That's great to hear! Congrats! I hope your 2016 is a million times better than 2015.

  5. Have a wonderful Christmas David, I am sure you will get a job soon. You didn't include my comments on the Undead Road. I enjoyed it even though I don't like Zombie books.

  6. Congrats - Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and may the gift of a job come through for you. See you in 2016.

  7. Congrats! That is one amazing cover. It gives you chills just looking at it. I wish I saw this Yoda meme earlier. Sooo many spoilers online.

  8. Good luck with getting a new job. I have not seen Star Wars either, so no spoilers from me. (Spoilers are just tacky, anyway.)

  9. Hope you have a blessed and beautiful holiday season, and a beyond fabulous 2016!

  10. How exciting about the pre-order! Wishing you lots of success with this book, and the job-hunt as well. (Job-hunting never fails to be a huge headache, at least in my experience.) Happy 2016!

  11. Preorders are exciting.

    Merry Christmas and may you receive good news soon regarding employment.

  12. Hi David - good luck ... You've had a challenging year - but perseverance is the key - a couple of leads is a couple of leads towards new and other opportunities as life unfolds. Do hope all goes well ... and a very happy 2016 - cheers Hilary

  13. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and good luck with the book release and future job. Hang in'll find one soon!

  14. Congrats on the pre-orders! Very exciting!

    Hope you had a Merry Christmas. Wishing a 2016 filled with happiness, good health, and a job to ease the stress.

  15. Looks rad! And go see Star Wars, it's definitely worth it:)
