Zombie books are the new black. Vampire tales and werewolf stories were all the rage until zombie books pushed these creations aside. Who knew that dead humans in search of live humans would capture so much interest?
I confess, I'm all about the zombie craze. So much so that when I'm finished with my novella series, a zombie novel may be next on my plate.
However, I believe that if you're going to write about zombies, you need to be familiar with them first. Stephenie Meyer wrote about vampires after barely reading a vampire book or watching a vampire movie. The result were Forks vampires that didn't follow the vampire script. She became a major success story. So her plan worked. However, if I choose to write about zombies, their favorite food won't be chocolate chip cookies.
One way to research zombie novels is to get involved in the Book Chick City's Zombie Challenge for 2012. You have until December 2012 to read the books of your choice. A good resource to find zombie books is to try Book Chick City's bookshelf at Goodreads.
