So.... is there going to be a sequel? If so when can I expect to pre order it? LMAO! But anyways, I love you book. In some parts it reminded me of the Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer. I like how the use of goth is in this book. The kids at my school and town dont understand the difference of Emo and Goth, and that saddens me. I wrote a (crappyish) review on your book at my blog, http://cranberryapplehead.blogspot.com/ . Hope you read the stuff there!

I literally just finisehd reading Generation Dead.
After starting it yesterday...
I must admit it's freaking awesome xD
Definitely one of the best books I have read ever.
I have been raving about it on twitter trying to convince my friends to read it, and gloating to my friend who wants to but can't find a copy [for some reason xD]

I NEED the sequel...
Soon xDD
And I loved the GD cover at the bottom of your blog...I have the red/black rose cover.

But yeah.
Awesome book, and fantastic writing style.

Can't decide whether I prefer Tommy or Adam though xD ^_^

Anyways, How are you :D Had a good weekend?

maximum ride said...

sounds pretty good love to come hopefully i can get a ride up but your book was fanomenal its so hard to find good young adult books that have a good sense of humor and inteligence haha so thanks hope to see you soon and read the next one! +D (cyclopse smile)

Ok so I live in Portland next to one of, like, THE BIGGEST powells bookstore ever and i happend to trade in a majority of my books just so i could buy generation dead! I loved this book! for me it really had a deeper meaning than just goth kids getting accepted. i am disabled and as you'll know at one point in time disabled people were treated like the zombies in generation undead. I'm glad you made this book because it shows me that through thick and thin there will always be someone to have my back. I'm also a little on the goth/punk side so it made it even cooler to finally read a book where the main character wasn't a popular stuck up snob. lol i still like those books too though. but anyways PLEASE write a sequel because adam is one of the coolest characters and i really wanna see him and pheeble get together. and i also really want to know what happens to martinsburg. he's a jerk. but please don't leave tommy with out a girl cause he seems so sweet. i don't know i just know I NEEED MORE!!!!! haha. thanks your my hero! -Kera

Rachael said...

I brought the book one a whim. I couldn't find what I was looking for and couldn't afford Breaking Dawn. So I bought Generation Dead. loved it. The sequel has been added to my long list of books I'm waiting for. thanks for writing such a great book.

Daniel Waters said...

Hi AllieCat!

I'm sorry I can't rush the process-but I will post the cover soon.

Take care,
Dan

Hi Cassandra!

Thank you for the compliments and the PR!

Take care,
Dan

P.S. I don't think your friend is looking very hard!

Hi Maximum Ride!

I love the cyclops smile. I hope you make it to one of the events.

Take care,
Dan

Hi Kera McGee!

Thank you very much for you kind post--I'm sorry you had to trade in all your books, tho. The sequel is on the way!

Take care,
Dan

Hi Rachael!

You might try Books of Wonder out of NYC, they had a bunch of signed books--or I could see you in Canton, CT? Or Boston??

Take care,
Dan

Hi Canuckcowgirl!

Dan

allison said...

sorry i haven't been here in a while. i was on tommy's. well, again good luck w/ everyhitng and um,.........u know how people r talking about Twilight? well i think that book draws u in to keep reading. but generation dead makes u never stop reading. im not saying gneration dead is better, but not saying twilight is better. just saying generation dead draws u more in. which i guess than almost makes it more interseting. i mean yeah, come on, zombies? AWESOME. but yeah. awesome!!!!!!!
best wishes,
Allison

Hi Allison!

No reason you can't like apple pie and pumpkin pie, you know? Thank you very much for the compliment.

Take care,

Leah said...

Generation Dead was a great book. I can't wait for the sequel!!!!
Are you going to post an excerpt from it anytime soon?

EshInoBi said...

May I ask if your series has a title, like all around (e.g. Twilight Saga, Inheritance Cycle), so what's this one going to be called? Thanks! =D

calgirl said...

Thanks for the new book. I am going to yabookcentral to try to win your book.

Allison said...

Daniel Waters said...

Hi Leah!

I'm not sure about an excerpt...maybe. Definitely the cover though when I have it.

Take care,
Dan

Daniel Waters said...

Hi Eshinobi!

Originally, I thought about calling the first book "Homecoming" and the series Generation Dead. I think Kiss of Life will say "A Generation Dead Book" on the cover.

Take care,
Dan

Daniel Waters said...

Hi calgirl!

Good luck!

Rachael said...

Thanks for the tip! You're a little far out to see me at a signing (I'm in the UK), but I may have found a signed copy on Abebooks to add to my collection. It's an ARC too, so my library is in heaven. :)
