First Kisses and Zombies

Today, I have just a few book announcements!  

First off, a non-fiction guide to getting your first kiss!

How to Get a Guy to Kiss You by Jessica McKendry

"You’re in one of those once-in-a-lifetime situations and you’re sitting next to your crush. You’re not sure if he notices you until you look over and your eyes meet for just a moment. You want him to kiss you, but you’re not sure how to go about it, and before you know it…he’s gone. This book is a short guide for young women coming of age on how to make sure Mr. Right doesn’t walk away, and more importantly, how to get a guy to kiss you!"

This is a short informal guide for teen girls who are thinking about dating and dreaming about their first kiss.  There is a lot more than just kissing in this book too.  The author talks a lot about having confidence in yourself and whether you're really ready for a kiss at all and if not that's perfectly okay! I loved this short book, but I have to admit I'm a tad biased seeing the author is my teen daughter! :)

Available on Amazon as an e-book for $2.99:

About the Author:

Jessica McKendry is a 19 year old author who was born in Michigan, yet grew up all over the Northeastern United States.  She has been writing since she could read, but didn't write much more than poetry until she was 14 when she accidentally began writing what would become her debut novel, From the Ashes. Check out her website, blog, or follow her on Twitter (@JessicaMcKendry) for more information.

Now on to Zombies!

I'm a little late in posting this as the big release was in January!

The Undead Road by David Powers King

Nothing brings the family together like a zombie apocalypse …

Fifteen-year-old Jeremy Barnes would rather watch a zombie movie than shoot a real one, but he has no choice if his family wants to survive the end of the world. Their plan? Drive across the infected United States to a cabin in the Colorado Rockies without a scratch, but their trip takes a complicated detour in the middle of Nebraska when they find Kaylynn, a girl who can handle a baseball bat better than Jeremy can hold a .45 Berretta. And when they stumble into a sanctuary, Jeremy soon learns that Kaylynn is stronger than she looks—a deadly secret lies inside her.

After the radio picks up a distress call from Kansas City about a possible cure, Jeremy’s parents go with a team to investigate. They never return. The only way to find their parents is for Jeremy and his sister Jewel to rely on a dangerous girl who might just turn on them at any moment.

About the Author:

David Powers King was born in beautiful downtown Burbank, California where his love for film inspired him to be a writer. He is the co-author of the YA fantasy novel WOVEN, published by Scholastic. An avid fan of science fiction and fantasy, David also has a soft spot for zombies and the paranormal. He currently lives deep in the mountain West with his wife and three children.

I haven't read The Undead Road yet, but I'm really looking forward to it even though zombies aren't normally in my To Read list.  But not only does it sound like a great adventure, David is one of the first bloggers that I met when I started blogging and he's a great guy so I'm excited to help support his work!

Hope everyone is having a great week!



  1. How awesome--your daughter's book. I have to imagine that's a book that will sell.

    I'm excited for David's book. It's loaded on my Kindle and waiting for October...when I need a little brain munching rather than nail biting around a book release.

    1. Thanks! I hope so! :) We can all use a little brain munching at times!

  2. I'm so excited for David's book! And thanks for posting about mine too :)
