I'm proud to announce that my 11th novel, ZOMBIE SHOWDOWN, is now LIVE on Kindle. Bucks County Publishing is the publisher.

The description:

For a group of sophomores at Gardner High School, it turned out to be a class trip gone awry.

For 15-year-old twins Christian and Rachel Sanderski, it was the opportunity to tell the truth.

A zombie attack while the kids are on a ghost tour forces Christian to save a group of his friends. The events of the next day, though, lead to Chris and Rachel's admission - they are the long lost descendants of a legendary gunman who once called Tombstone home. Their mother had forbidden them from saying a word about their genealogy in order to protect them.

With the admission, a weight has lifted from their shoulders and, with the help of their friends, Christian and Rachel battle the zombies in a late night brawl. But when the kids are told of the coming of The Three dead cowboys their ancestor had sent to Boot Hill Cemetery, they steel themselves for the fact that they may never return home.

Action and adventure, friends lost and friends found. And love, too…

What other authors are saying about ZS:

"Sean Sweeney is a master of injecting the unexpected into history, bringing it to life. An intense zombie shootout at the OK Corral." ~~ Imogen Rose, Author of The Portal Chronicles.

"There's only one town I can think of that's perfect for a zombie-infested six-gun shootout...and it's Tombstone. Sean Sweeney's rip-roaring adventure will have you yearnin' for the Old West and for quick-drawing zombies at the same time! If you love tales of the undead, you have to pick this one up!" -- J. Kent Holloway, author of PRIMAL THIRST and SIRENS' SONG.

"For these kids, historical field trips are about to get a lot more exciting-and deadly. Sweeney's ZOMBIE SHOWDOWN is one helluva zombie ride filled with action and humor."
- Michael Crane, author of LESSONS AND OTHER MORBID DRABBLES and IN DECLINE (stories)

Hello again, Sean, and congratulations on your book! :)

Please note that KindleBoards is a Readers and Kindle Fan forum. Authors are always welcome to post anywhere but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference. :) )

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Thanks, Ann. Much appreciated. Now....

Seriously, who doesn't love a good zombie tale? This tale came out of a discussion about the Old West and what would happen if zombies infiltrated Tombstone. Of course, some of the most notorious individuals lived in Tombstone at one point in the 1800s. And as I thought about it, I thought it would be cool if I made my cousin's two eldest kids as the protagonists. See, the eldest of the bunch doesn't read, and I thought one way to get him to read would be if I made him a character in a book.

Voila. Zombie Showdown was born.

I gave my niece (she's in the book) her copy of ZS on Tuesday. She read it for a bit and then texted me: "There's a problem with the book." I texted her back and said "What's wrong?"

She wanted to know about the relationship question. It's essential to the plot. If you love a twist, there's a huge twist midway through the book.

She loves it... even though she hasn't had much time to read as she's returning to school today. But she loves it.
