Author Eva Gordon’s top 10 list on how to survive the Zombie Apocalypse

Author Eva Gordon’s top 10 list on how to survive the Zombie Apocalypse

(Based on her novel, Apocalyptic Moon, Book 1 in the After the Bane series)

First an Intro: Apocalyptic Moon takes place during the zombie apocalypse. However, most zombie stories deal with humans verses the undead. In my story, I mix genres by adding werewolves, other shifters and magical elements. Yes, there is a secret shifter society and now the various factions must decide how to help the remaining humans, if at all. Fortunately, for all concerned, the Z-Phage virus does not infect shifters.

Ravaged by a global zombie pandemic, humanity’s survival depends on the secret society of shifters, but can they be trusted?

Top Ten List on how to Survive Zombies
~Guns need ammo, blades and werewolf friends don’t.
~Keep a cool head and try to see the humor in things.
~If you miss their heads, aim for their legs.
~Take shelter in higher ground, zombies are clumsy.
~Don’t take elevators.
~Fight or Flight? Flight is always better.
~Uses your senses of smell, sight and hearing to detect zombies.
~Don’t get bitten.
~Have a plan to get to your loved ones.
~Never moon a werewolf, when you should be focusing on survival.

Homework Assignment 1: Go to the CDC Page and follow their instructions on how to prepare for the zombie apocalypse.


Homework Assignment 2: Watch every episode of True Blood and Walking Dead and take notes.

What? Too much work and not enough time. Okay. Simpler solution, read:

Apocalyptic Moon, Book 1 in the After the Bane Series and then Book 2, Raven Moon (to be released 2014, and months before the zombie Apocalypse.) 

Apocalyptic MoonDr. Dora Adler’s life has been in disarray since the beginning of the zombie apocalypse, but when she gets bitten by one of the undead her whole world is turned upside down. Held captive in a secret underground lab, the tall, muscular hunk in the next cell is her only hope for salvation. Unfortunately, he claims to be a werewolf. Yeah, and she’s supposedly a witch. 

Dirk Gunderson is an alpha Arbor pack werewolf. Captured and collared, he’s sold to the zombie lab in hopes his blood serum can create a vaccine. He needs to escape, but not without the hot little brunette witch.

In the midst of enemy werewolves and the hordes of undead, Dirk and Dora’s sexual tension ignites a blaze hotter than the desert highway. Along their journey, they battle the inevitable: a werewolf must never take a witch as a mate.

I write fantasy and paranormal novels with a strong romantic element. I love to create stories that combine my passion for mythology, romance and werewolf lore. Apocalyptic Moon was inspired by my love of the zombie genre. It is book 1 in my After the Bane series. I also write steampunk and Victorian era historical and alternative novels.

Please Note:
I have my rights back to The Wolf Maiden Chronicles series and Corvallis Press will be publishing my updated, revised books. The series is now called the Wolf Maiden Saga. Coming soon after the new book in the series, Lycan Gladiator is released later in 2013.

I have a BS in Zoology and graduate studies in Biology. I have taught high school Biology, Environmental Science and Anatomy/Physiology. When not in my den writing, I enjoy world travel, steampunk conventions, hiking, raptor rehabilitation and wolf sanctuaries.

I also teach online workshops on wolf lore ancient falconry and animal lore for Romance Writers of America and other writer groups. If you are interested in my workshops, please contact me.

On each full moon I blog an interview with a fictional werewolf and or real magical people and creatures. For more info go to my website or to my blog


  1. Yep, don't get bitten would be my #1 tip for the zombie apocalypse.

  2. Love the list! Sending this to my son, he always talks of preparing for the ZA.

  3. And watch out for Zombie Kittens, imagine you've survived well into the apocalyse and your munched by a kitten.

  4. Definitely don't get bitten. By a zombie or a werewolf! Or a werezombie! Is there such a thing?
