Guest Post: My Zombie Apocalypse Bunker by Ryan Hill + giveaway

My zombie apocalypse bunker - the essentials 

My zombie apocalypse bunker wouldn't be a typical bunker. Most shelters of this sort are underground, and surround you in nothing but concrete and cement. That's not fun, and it's no fun to walk on. So, first order of business is to lay down a rug. That way, I won't have to walk on concrete. It doesn't have to be a fancy rug, just something I can walk on that isn't rock-based.

Obviously, the bunker will be loaded with food and water. Otherwise, what's the point? However...the bunker will also be packed to the gills with alcohol. Not even good alcohol. Just really, really strong alcohol. I don't think you can be picky in times like a zombie apocalypse. Weapons of all sorts would line the walls, and I'd even have a secret tunnel installed, just in case. Even zombie bunkers need fire escapes.

With the essentials out of the way, I'd turn my focus to filling out my zombie bunker. Things can get pretty lonely when you're sitting in a concrete room. I'd need books. Lots of them. My Kindle doesn't last very long without electricity, so I'd need real books. The bunker also wouldn't have any natural light, so I'd probably be left to use candles for light. A few boxes of those would do. Not to sound like I'm seventy-five, but I'd probably also have a handful of 1,000 piece puzzles lying around.

In a perfect world, my zombie apocalypse bunker would have working plumbing. But, it's not a perfect world, especially if zombies are running around eating brains. So, no indoor plumbing. That's okay, though. Everyone needs a little danger in their life. Also, I'd have to leave the bunker at some point, or else I'd go stir crazy. That, and I'd eventually run out of toilet paper. Nobody ever said the zombie life was a clean life.

When the the leader of a powerful cult kidnaps the woman Holt loves, he teams up with his best friend to save her from a fate worse than death.

Fans of Jonathan Maberry's ROT & RUIN and AMC's hit series, The Walking Dead will devour Hill's action ­packed take on the Zombie genre. DEAD NEW WORLD is now available at Amazon and Curiosity Quills. Get to know more about Ryan in this exclusive letter to readers

Zombies aren’t mindless anymore.

Before the world fell into chaos, the undead existed only in the imagination. Now, more of them walk the earth than living. Zombies move about freely, while humans entomb themselves inside concrete barricades to stay alive.

All that, while the leader of a powerful cult - known only as Reverend - becomes the next threat to the rebuilding United States. Believing zombies to be God’s latest creation, making humanity obsolete, he wants to give every man, woman, and child the chance to become one. With his combined army of humans and zombies, he may well get his wish.

Best friends Holt and Ambrose went up against the Reverend once. Holt lost a foot and a zombie bit Ambrose…though he survived the virus, only to become a human-zombie hybrid, reviled by the living and unwelcome among the dead. When the Reverend kidnaps the woman Holt loves, the race is on to save her from a fate worse than death.

Growing up, Ryan Hill used to spend his time reading and writing instead of doing homework. This resulted in an obsession with becoming a writer, but also a gross incompetence in the fields of science and mathematics. A graduate of North Carolina State University, Ryan has been a film critic for over five years. He lives in Raleigh, NC, with his dog/shadow Maggie. Ryan also feels strange about referring to himself in the third person.

  1. Alcohol is indeed a MUST in any zombie apocalypse bunker; things are bound to get boring after a while, and booze has a way of making even the most crappy of situations better. The lack of plumbing would definitely pose a problem though, because I don't know about you, but I personally pee A LOT when I drink. LOL Happy belated book birthday, and thanks for the fun guest post!

  2. I don't have a question yet per say... I have an OMG this is not coming up fast enough on my reading calendar kind of comment. I have it on my calendar for October 29 which means I start it a couple days earlier and if I skip ahead and read it now I'll be off for my other tours. I cannot to read this!

    1. DeniseZ is reviewing it for us! can't wait to hear what she has to say :)

  3. I agree with Carmel a large stash of alcohol would be a must. Sounds like this book has a lot going on to keep the reader engaged.

    1. I know. I don't know why alcohol isn't on everyone's bunker list...
