Dear Sir or Madam...Would You Take A Look

Generation Dead is now available in paperback at fine retailers and etailers everywhere. The Oprah-approved book now contains these special bonus features:

* TWO intriguing chapters of Kiss of Life, which will be released in May!

* All-New ISBN numbers!

* The distinctive Disney logo! The hardcover was printed way back in the day by "Hyperion*DBG", whereas the modern paperback is put out by "Disney*Hyperion" Neat, huh?

* Three pleasant blurbs from reputable reviewing sources! Including one of my favorites, which from Kirkus Reviews that begins "Stephenie Meyer meets John Green...". How cool is it to be the literary love child of two authors who are both actually younger than me (not by much, though--I ain't dead yet)? Wowzers! Side note: I met and partied like a rock star assuming the rock star was, say, Morrissey during his reclusive years) with John Green in San Antonio, and I found him to be a wonderfully gracious and charming guy. We look nothing alike, however.

But wait! There's more...

* The book is PACKED with EVEN MORE zombies than ever before! Hoo hah, is there lots o' zombies! An all-new zombie character is right there in chapter two of the bonus material! It's zombtastic! You know how when you are playing XBox or Wii and there's all these super-cool unlockable characters? This is just like that, except in convenient book form!

Get yers today!

Hello Dan!
How are you?
Wow!That sounds great, but sad, because I live in Mexico, and I think I´ll go to U.S until next year, and getting "Generation Dead" was sooo difficult, and I don´t know how will I get "Kiss of life", maybe a friend could bring it to me.
Do you know if "Generation Dead" will come to Mexico in a Spanish edition?I know English, but I would love to have the book in my language and my mom doesn´t know English, only french Ja Ja, and she´ll love to read your book, and I could lend it to one of my frinds, and I´ll show them that it´s really good and I could share my "Zombie obssesion" with them xD.
Thanks for answering me!
Take care,

P.S:My zombie owl bites!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I'm ordering paperback version at the same time as I order Kiss of Life, which means I'll have to wait another 5 (?) weeks before I get to read the first two chapters. Groan.

I've been telling all my friends about GD. They can't wait to read it.

Danielle said...

I'm going to buy this...so now I'll have the first two chaps of Kiss of Life lol :]

Hi Zombie Girl.X!


Take care,

Hi Anna-Tommy-lover!

That is a cool owl!

No plans yet for a Spanish edition...

Take care,

Hi Stina!

Thanks for your business!

Maybe they will send you GD first?

Take care,

Hi Danielle!

Thanks for your business! But you really don't need to do that--May will be here too soon.

Take care,

So are you saying you just added in a comment about an introduction of more zombies at the HH or that there is a bit of a change in the story? O.o Or are you talking about the exerpt from KoL?

Daniel Waters said...

Hi Raschel!

New zombies are introduced in the sample Kiss of Life chapters!

Sorry for my lack of clarity!

Take care,

I have to say, when I first picked up Generation Dead, I expected some awful Twilight-esque zombie blah blah (I absolutely hated the Twilight series). Preparing to skim and maybe just read the ends of the chapters, I found myself going "Oh... Oh wow... What happens next... No way... Oh wow...." Generation Dead is one of my absolute favorite books, and I'm looking forward to hand-selling it in paperback! (We got our 4 copies in yesterday).

"Stephenie Meyer meets John Green..." No wonder I loved it!

Daniel Waters said...

Hi Bailey!

Much obliged! Ah, handselling...takes me back to when I used to work for a book megamart...

Take care,

Daniel Waters said...

Hi Monix!

Well, thank you!

Take care,
