Win 1 of 6 Copies of ‘Five Little Zombies And Fred’

As you may be aware, my latest book Five Little Zombies And Fred — on Google+ and Twitter — is now available for purchase!

If you are unfamiliar with this title, Five Little Zombies And Fred is a not-for-children children’s book about the perils of a zombie apocalypse, filled with zombies, a Mountie, and our hero, Fred. It spoofs the Ten Little Monkeys Jumping On A Bed nursery rhyme. Filled with geeky visual gags and Easter eggs, it is written and illustrated to speak to the child in every one. It tells the story of our hero Fred who finds himself in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. Will he survive with the help of his friend the Mountie? Warning: Mild zombie violence.

Aside from the book, which is illustrated by the amazingly talented Matt Schubbe, there is also a line of Five Little Zombies And Fred merchandise for you to purchase. And there is the Five Little Zombies And Fred  music album, with songs written and performed by Errol Elumir — half of former featured independent geek music duo Debs and Errol — and mixed and mastered by former featured independent musician Chris Cogott.

The reception of the book has been beyond my best expectation. The reviews have been wonderful, including five 5 star reviews on, and one 5 star review on Fellow GeekMom core contributor Patricia Vollmer also wrote a great review of the book on her personal blog.

Three people will receive the paperback version of the book, the DRM-Free PDF version of the book, and the Five Little Zombies And Fred music album.

  1. Guns look awesome but are terrible for fighting off the zombie hordes. Swords and other melee weapons don’t jam, run out of ammunition or make loud noises that will attract unwanted attention.

  2. Hmmm. Well, see, Zombies, right. What if the tables were turned? Everyone is concerned with having their brains eaten by Zombies, but, what if we, as the Living, EAT some Zombie brains. I speculate that this will imbue us with powers beyond our comprehension, making us understand their tactics and/or compulsions a jillion-fold. Then, as amped-up superhumans, we’ll develop immunities to whatever pathogen it is that CAUSES Zombie-ism. So, yeah, my strategy follows that whole “infiltrate and dominate from the inside of the organization”. Interestingly enough; these same methods work for any incarnation of Corporate America.

  3. I would survie because I never leave the house :) I would be one of the last people alive. Once the internet goes, I have about 100 books to go through.

  4. Guns run out of ammo, so they’re only a short-term fix.

    GTFO urban areas. Get somewhere that’s as rural as you can (at least 2 days walking distance for anyone), which has a veggie garden and local fauna. Sharpen ALL the things and build your defences (a stone tower? awesome idea). If it can be on a hilltop/somewhere defensible, that’s good. Take your cues from ancient civilisations’ wars, and how they dealt with the issue.

    New Zealand is good, especially on the South Island. Canada’s probably even better.

    Alternatively, find and dissuade/kill the researchers (and the company hiring them) who’re working on the virus which will cause the outbreak 😛

  5. Your plan to survive the zombie apocalypse should include a lerge group of people, so that you can spell each other o the defenses. As a backup make sure that some of them run slower than you do.

  6. Head somewhere with freezing temperatures. Researchers have speculated that zombies will freeze in such weather leaving you with humorous zomcicles to decorate your lawn with instead of flesh eating monsters you need to flee from. At least until summer.

  7. Tips for surviving the zombie apocalypse?
    1 – Dress up like a zombie so you blend in. You can hit up the local golf course, swing by the liquor store and generally enjoy a solo lifestyle. Hey, it worked for Bill Murray.

    2 – Every now and then stop and look behind you. You never know if there is a zombie behind you or not if you don’t look.

    3 – Keep a journal put don’t make it accurate. That way if the zombies are wiped out your journal may confuse future archaeologists. You get your laughs where you can.

    “It all started with the Mart wars. Wal and K were the dominate forces and we all knew it would come down to who could deploy a biological weapon first.”
