Yuma Zombie Crisis

Holy Zombie Crisis! There's going to be a full scale invasion of Yuma! What began as two writers driving six hours with their three Great Danes to sign some books has become all out mayhem!

Here's what's transpired so far--

    Concrete Savior (Dark Redemption, Book 2)
  • The local zombie club has become involved and will be lurching through the aisles.
  • Barnes and Nobles is hosting a costume contest with free giveaways galore, to include zombie bookmarks, temporary tattoos and "adopt-a-zombie" kits. 
  • The local head of the National Guard has warned the bookstore that no zombies should be seen outside the store.
  • The Commander of the Marine Corps Depot has put his QRF on alert, making them ready and available to help the population should the store not be able to contain the zombies.
  • The Governor of California warned the Governor of Arizona that no illegal alien zombies should cross the border into California and is backing it up with the deployment of the 233rd Tank Brigade.
