Will there be ARCs available of Kiss of Life? I'd love to get one if there are. I rec'd my ARC of Generation Dead during NCTE last year. I see you are going to be there this year. I hope I'll get a chance to meet you. Here is the link to my review of Generation Dead.

Take care,

Daniel Waters said...

Thanks, Amanda!

Thanks, Kira! I suspect next June.

Thanks, Tasha, but the cover hasn't been shot yet????

Hey, Jessica! I don't have the cover yet, but my brilliant editor Ari got to shop for a dress for one of the models yesterday!

Shawn said...

oh my gosh!
i'm so excitied!!
i never expected a sequel, though i longed to know more.
kiss of life...hmm...
does it involve a kiss?
xD
anyway, i finished Generation Dead yesterday, which took me 2 1/2 days to read (which shattered my last reading record) and i'm glad to inform you that it became my new favorite book and that i will be one of the first to purchase Kiss of Life
i can't wait...no seriously, i absolutely cannot wait 11 months!
that's crazy!

well good luck writing!
oh...and i'm a girl despite my guy name. just thought you needed to know
xD

Rachael said...

Yay! i can't wait for Kiss of Life to come out! i loved Generation Dead! tommy and pheobe are a cute couple! i feel so bad for adam! can't wait for #2!

Emily said...

I read Generation Dead in one night staying up all night just to finish it, it was one of the very few books that made my eyes water around the end.
I am greatly anticapating The Kiss of Life. I'm guessing it's not comming out for another year or so, which is a drag since I'm dying to know more.
Generation Dead is in my top five favorite books.(:

Dancing To Flannigans Ball said...

I loved Generation Dead, i wanted them to kiss so bad, and so did my friend! we were talking about what if you did a sequal what you would call it! lol i'm glad there is a second one comming! Go you! i can't wait for Kiss of life! I also am wondering why there is a cheerleader on front of Generation dead?

Tasha said...

Oops!! I meant title....don't know what was going through my brain there!!

Tangerine said...

I can't wait for it! I'm dying to read it! Any guestimation on when it will be released?

Daniel Waters said...

Hi Shawn!

I'm honored!

Hi Rachael!

Me either!

Hi Emily!

I'm just as honored!

Hi Dancing!

I'm not sure exactly why there is a cheerleader on the cover, but it sure looks great!

Hi again Tasha!

Ain't no thang. I do it all the time.

Hi Tangerine!

I'm guessing May or June next year.

Thanks everybody for your posts.

Take care,
Dan

By the way when do u think tha will be? Thanks for a great book! :)

Paige said...

Hapopy Birthday! Glad you liked it.

Hi Paige!

Thank you! You might want to check out the interview links on the right hand side of the blog, where I talk a bit about "why zombies". Although the real reason is--zombies rule!

Take care,

Hi Allison!

Thanks for the encouragement!

Hi anonymous,

I'm sorry you cried. AEnjoy being twelve, it was one of my favorite ages.

Hi Allison!

Hi Anonymous!

ALLIE said...

PHOEBE BETTER KISS ADAM!!!!!!! THATS ALL I HAVE TO SAY

ALISON said...

OK HERES THE DEAL PHOEBE AND ADAM ARE IN LOVE THAT SHOULD SHOW IN THE NEXT BOOK I THINK ADAM SHOULD KILL PETE AND ADAM AND PHOEBE SHOULD KISS AND BRING ADAM BACK TO EXACTLY THE WAY HE WAS BEFORE (WHICH IS PROBABLY WHAT U HAD IN MIND SEEING THE TITLE IS KISS OF LIFE) AND MAYBE PHOEBE SHOULD TONE DOWN THE GOTH? JUST SOME SUGGESTIONS
I LOVED THE BOOK I KNOW ITS COMING OUT IN JUNE BUT CAN U MAKE THAT SOONER? - ALISON

Maddy said...

I'm right in the middle of reading generation dead, it's one of my favorites already! I was really surprised to find out about a sequel, but sad when you posted the estimated release date. T_T
I'm really excited about it, even though I'm not done with the first one yet... Already two fo my friends wanna borrow this book from me and I just got it yesterday! I think you're a great author, and good luck with any future books (which I hope there are...)!

Amanda said...

Hi Daniel I'm so excited for the sequel to Generation Dead. I know its coming out in June next year but do you have an exact release date yet? Also are you thinking about making a movie? That would be so cool I would really like to see a movie about it. let me know!!!!

ieamberrenee said...

I am so glad there's going to be a sequel! I finished the book last night, in barely four hours, and the first thing I could think was "is there going to be more?!"

Phoebe, Adam, Tommy and Karen were so fleshed out and real, and I can't wait for more about them and the rest of their living and zombie friends!

Amber

p.s.: I always pictured the girl on the cover as Karen, too! =)

Anonymous said...

DANIEL yay ever since twlight my books have been blah compared you made it better!!!!! oh, and whats the deal with people saying adam and pheobe, its tommy and pheobe remeber people? if pheobe went through the whole book not feeling a thing for adam besides friendship why would that change? oh and "kiss of life" should mean tommy because he says before pete comes in at the end that he thought if he could get someon to love him than he might come back more-----like how he feels when hes with pheobe and karen has telepathy and tommy can read minds thats why when pheobe thinks about how strange the zombie thing is in her head tommy stutters more and


IF PHEOBE ENDS UP WITH ADAM IT SHOULD BE CALLED " THE KISS OF LIKE" BECAUSE SHE LOVES TOMMY PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOVE YA DAN! ME.

Lauren said...

That is an awesome title, and I definantly plan on reading it. I'm from yabookscentral. Generation Dead looks like a really good book!!!

Meredith said...

Woohoo. Sequel! Sequels are great, I love to know what happens to characters after the first book!

~Meredith

Shalonda Dixon said...

Very cool title. Reminds me of that old Sade song (though I am sure that was not the motivation for the book title). Look forward to reading the new book and hopefully I, too, will get a chance to meet you at NCTE in San Antonio!

allison said...

ok. i already commented but i think phoebe and tommy should get together and adam will hook up w/ karen. adam should kill pete and pete will die.(duh). then julie should come back, then pete and julie get together. margi and colette will become best friends again. that's wat i think should happen.the last time i spelled my name wrong too.
best wishes,
Allison-i'm 11 (and adore this book)

Hi Amanda!

I'd love for Generation Dead to be a movie, but that's up to Hollywood. Maybe if we all think positive thoughts...

Take care,

Hi Amber!

Was that a joke...the zombies were so "fleshed out" hee hee, sorry, a little zombie humor, there (very little). Anyway...thanks!

Take care,
Dan


Anonymous, "Kiss of Like" is awesome! LOL! A+ for humor!

Hi Lauren from yabookscentral!

Thank you! Hope you like it!

Take care,
Dan

Hi Meredith!

Me, too, especially when they sequel is to a book I wrote.

Take care,
Dan

Hi Shalonda!

I'm actually a big Sade fan--that title wasn't consciously in my head, but subconciously...who knows? Actually, the one that is always consciously in my head is her song "When am I Going to Make a Living?" from the "Diamond Life" LP. I mean CD.

Definitely look me up at NCTE (unless you read the book and hate it, of course).

Take care,
Dan

Hi again Allison!

I only wish I had your plotting skills when I was 11! It might not have taken me so long to get a book published.

Take care,
Dan

Amanda said...

Hi Daniel posted before but Do you now the exact release date yet? because I already have it reserved at my local library for when it comes out i'll be the first in my town to have it

allison said...

Allison

sandi said...

did I read correctly? you'll be in San Antonio for NCTE???

If this is true- SWEET!
Do you mind if I totally geek out and bring a book for you to sign? (And a camera for a picture?)

BTW- when I got my Breaking Dawn book friday night Books a million handed out Generation Dead bracelets with it.

Shawn said...

hey daniel!
i'm here again to ask you a question...well it's more of a suggestion.
anyway, you know those t-shirts the foundation in your book gave out to the students who were volunteering, with those cool slogans?
well i was wondering if you were gonna make any shirts and sell them. actually, i'm saying that you should sell shirts like that. i know i'd buy one, heck, i'd buy all of them if it weren't for my mom and her issues with spending money on clothing.
i'd toe-tally buy one that said "Dead...and loving it!"

Sounds exciting! When's it coming out?

i didn't realise that you had a website so i was searching round shops 4 ages looking for kiss of life lol :P

cupcakes said...

So I really like Gerneration Dead. Stumbled acrossed it in a book store picked it up. Loved the cover. :) Can't wait for the 2nd to come out. Now my boyfriends reading it.

Alice said...

I LOVE your books! Well... currently book :(

OK, this is what I hope/think/want to happen in the Kiss Of Life. =]!

Adam+Phoebe

Tak+Karen Were they together in Generation Dead? Because she got really upset and found it harder to talk when he was angry with her. Or was it just the usual love makes us stronger stuff?

Colette and Kevin

Pete and Julie

Margi and ??

Oh yeah, Pete becomes friends with Adam agian because he now likes dead people - Julie. Phoebe doesn't fancy Tommy anymore, now that she's seen that he was only using her to become more alive, Colette and Margi make up, and they all continue working with the Hunter foundation towards their goal - making zombies socially acceptable. Is that OK?

In anyway correct?? PLEASE give us a clue, the book cover, ANYTHING!!!!!!!!

=}

Thank you very much for letting me witter on. LMAO! I sound like Margi!!!

I love your books. After this series, will continue writing etc? I hope so!!

Cheers,

Alice.

Hey Alice i just read your comment and how the hell is pete gonna get together with julie if julie's dead and is not a zombie? but your totally
right about adam and phoebe. but tell me how adam can be friends with pete when pete killed him?

tessa said...

I can't wait to see what the cover looks like for the sequel ! I hope it's as cool as the first... it's what drew me to the book in the first place. Generation Dead is one of my favorite books. :]

AlwaysALullaby said...

I just finished Generation Dead yesterday, and I must tell you that i couldn't put it down! I was actually sad when it was over and I hoping there would be a sequel, and now i am very much looking forward to reading it :)I can't wait to continue on with the characters in another adventure!

Nina said...

I'm really glad that a sequel is coming out as at first I didn't know what to think of this book but my friend got me into it and I couldn't put it down! I finished it in a day!

Aimée said...

Thank you for writing such an amazing book! I devoured it - read it one sitting! I'm so glad you chose to write about zombies as well! Their prettier undead cousins, the vampires, have been getting a lot of attention lately, it was great to read a book that considers how the undead effect the living, and the national consequences of the dea re-animated. I'm greatly anticipating the sequel- I'm sure it'll be ace!

Rachael said...

Hiya! Just finished reading 'Generation Dead' (and I mean that quite literally; I have just put it down) and I want more. Now. I was a little sad to see the Tommy and Phoebe spark die so quickly, but you redeemed it by killing off Adam. He will make a wonderful zombie, I am sure.

I'm 26, and ploughing my way through YA fantasy because from what I have been reading the last few years, YA is where all the good books are at. Not that I'm biased, writing in the genre myself.

Can't wait for your next book. When will it be out in the UK?

I applaud you on your foray into the world of YA lit--I think some of the best new work on the shelves today is YA.

An interviewer asked me if I thought "zombies were the new vampires". I said no, but that I thought YA Lit was the new rock n' roll.

hi
im from england and i justed wanted to say that i thought ur book generation dead was FANTASTIC. I absolutely loved it, couldnt put it down. I can't wait for the sequel but im well gutted that I will have to wait so long :(
I agree with a lot of people. Adam and Phoebe should get together, she realised how she felt when they fell out, there is no way she can stay with Tommy now that he used her. I kinda hope that Tommy and Karen get together actually I think there is something there. Oh and I hope that Pete finds someone, dont know who but I would hate him just to be alone its sad.
Anyhoo thanks for the book its was mint and I now love zombies hehe. :)
Love

tabitha said...

OMG!!
i cant wait!
Generation Dead was so amazing i cried at the end.I'm soo happy that there will be another book. I'm planning on getting at least 2 copies lol. Also you should think about putting some "My other best friend's a zombie" t-shirts in stores or online. I would love to wear generation dead merchandise. You can never go wrong with pheebs and tommy! Get that new book out soon ok?
love ur biggest fan,
tabitha

Anonymous said...

I loved generationd dead but in the next book will pete be involved or is he in the shadows? As well does Phoebe have to make a desicion between her promise to adam and feelings for tommy. because isnt love the way that brings you back the most. Well if it is i think this book will be great anyway you turn to construct it.

Anonymous said...

hey, im from the UK and just discovered generation dead.
I LOVED it!!!!
AND me and the rest of the borders book club im in have read it, and are ready to discuss what we thought of it.

Personally, i thought it was refreshing to read something different. Id never think id read or follow a book that went from different POVs but this one was so easy to follow and i enjoyed it so much!!

i cant wait for 'Kiss Of Life'!!
Will i have to wait longer for it, or will it come out over here the same time it does in america???

Kalliy said...

i love Generation Dead. i really thought you weren't going to write a another one but, once i got on your website and saw Kiss Of Life i was happy! (ran around my house screaming!)

i really hope Adam will be in it. and Adam and Phoebe will have a kiss??? haha

your a amazing author (one of my top fives!)

Also, i want to know what happens to Pete(the way you wrote about him, you can clearly see the steps he was taking to become insane)

thank you so much for making amazing book!!

I am so glad there is going to be a sequal. I just finished reading Generation Dead and I fell in love with every character. In just a few hours i was halfway through the book. It really was one of the best books I have ever read. I'm just so excited about the sequal. :]

ps. I think Tommy and Phoebe should be together. :]

Is there going to be a movie cuz i wanna be in it

Hayley said...

Generation Dead is amazing! my cousin brought it for me for christmas, and im quite ashamed to admit it took me 24hours to read. I love the way the book is written and i cried so much when Adam died. And i was absolutley histerical when he came back. I will be the very first at my local waterstones when this books is released. Iv actually planned that when im 25 im going to direct Generation Dead if it hasnt already been made into a movie- which it should have, because if it isnt i would really be heartbroken:P Thankyou for writing such an inspirational novel

Hayley x

Anonymous said...

OMG I have read this book like 15 times and i still can't get over the fact tht adam died. Right now my little cousin is borrowing it. My lil cousin is 9 so far she absolutly loves it and can't put it down. my friend also borrowed it and was also upset when adam died. I think tht adam should deffently come back and karen and tommy should get together or adam and karen should get together i have no clue who i want pheobe to choose.

zuri smith said...

Hi i aboslutly loved generation dead! You should do a review on twilight i love that book to! I cried when adam died he sould hook up whith karen and feobe should stay whith tommy. I want some of those slydel tshirts! That would be soooooooo cool. Will ther be a threquil? A whole series? I hope so. Im running out of books to read. My school library isnt very big so im moving on to inkheart. Maybe i can read the series realy slow so by the time i finish it kiss of life will be out but i highly doubt it.

portreath-tombstoner-the-real-sport said...

Generation Dead was amazing, infact, I am in awe of its some! At the begining I was a bit scared that it was essentialy twilight and blue bloods being put into a blender and then mashed into the shape of a book, lol, but then it suddenly changed and was so diffrent from both of the other books and became so very AMAZING!

Just woundering is Angela evil? because Karen freaked out a bit when pheobe gave her the blog address.

Zoe said...

Hi Daniel

Well done on a fantastic book, and in responding so well to blog comments! Have to say I was yet another looking for when the next book was out.

I am a teacher and always looking for good books to recommend to students, and I get in trouble when they want the next book and it isn't out. Makes them think I am EVIL!!

Will be something to look forward to, I am sure.

Happy Writing. :)

FaithColeman;) said...

I absolutely loved your book! It was very creative I have to give you some credit!! I'm also writing a book about a girl who loses her only left parent and has to be put into foster care. Any ideas on how to make her experience more exciting? Only If you have time, though because I'm sure writers like you must be working hard!! Well I'm sure your next book will be great! I hope that one day I will be as good of a writer as you!god bless you!

Daniel Waters said...

Hi Faith!

Thanks for the nice comment.
I think I'd need more information to help you with your story...but wouldn't you rather write it yourself? One thing you can try is to close your eyes and "see" out of your characters' eyes; that sometimes helps me.

Good luck!

Take care,
Dan

FaithColeman;) said...

Yes I do think that writing it myself would be a smart idea and thanks for the idea! Do you happen to know when your book is coming out like the exact date yet? It's okay If not I understandwriting takes time I've already redone mine like a hundred times haha! Thanks for your incouragement;)

Darby Arby said...

YESSS! I feel like I have been waiting forever!

supahfreakk said...

YEEET! I am so excited!
May's taking too long to come, darn it. :(

Generation Dead has become one of my favorite books, not exaggerating.
The book was amazinggg, and i was hooked right from Chapter 1.
When i first saw the cover, i was kinda unsure though, about Phoebe being goth [sorry, but they've always kinda creeped me out. talk of darkness, death and all. hahah].
But later on, i grew to love all the characters, Phoebe, Margi, and all. :]
Tommy, i gotta admit, he was pretty sexy in a mysterious, intriguing kind of way.
And then there's Adam, with his courage and bravery and loyalty, a modern Prince Charming.

I just cannot wait for Kiss of Life! More stuff for Adam and Phoeobe and Tommy! :D

Keep writing all those amazing stories, Mr. Waters! We'd miss you and your stories greatly. They're like one-of-a-kind. :)

Generation Dead was so good i was almost crying when adam died and when he returned i was so relieved i know its weird a 'living impaired' or 'differently biotic' or my favourite 'zombie' dating a living person but i hope him and phoebe finally hook up. P.S are there going to be any prequels?

I can't wait to get The Kiss of Life, Generation Dead has made me cry, TWICE. And I suspect a waterfall will come at the end, it usuall does after I read a book this good. Thanks for writing this book! ^.^

Will there be another one after The Kiss of Life? Or is it just those two?

I can't wait for the next book :D I hope Phoebe realises that Adam is the right guy for her... he seems really good looking too :) For some reason I don't like Tommy as much as some people do, he sounds dodgy :) lol, but it's a fantastic book, I read it in 1 and a half days! Loved it

I really really loved your book. It was one of the few books which made me really feel like the characters in the story were real and I can relate all the chararcters from your book to my friends in real life. To tell you the truth this book was a lot better than the twilight series and I hope you will be inspired to continue on the series; far past The Kiss Of Life. By the way tomorrow I'm going to the library to check out The Kiss Of Life hehe
keep on writing!!!!
