The Zombie Makeup from the AVZ Cover Shoot

Awesome! Reader Gives Five Star Review to AVZ

5.0 out of 5 stars Even the Amish community isn't immune to the zombie plague!June 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This isn't just a story where the Amish battles zombies. Thanks to Gregory's research, the Amish characters are very authentic and the reader learns a lot about the Amish beliefs and traditions. This is a christian story written by a christian writer ironically with zombies. The ending to the story is just perfect, not going to give anything away. This is a very fun read and even though I'm an Englischer, I still related to the characters and their conflicts of belief in this good vs evil story. This is a book worth reading for zombie and christian fiction lovers.

READER REVIEW: The Amish vs. The Zombies

"Get a copy. It is a great read. And it leaves you with something to ponder. I know it sounds 'silly' with the Zombie stuff, but really, it will give you some great food for thought. And it won't be brains."

The Zombies (and Amish) Are Coming!

The files were approved and the first batch of books have been ordered and will be here on Monday, June 16! 

You may, of course, reserve a copy, but they will not be available until the June 21 launch. 

Here's the word from my advance reader: 

"I had a great time reading Gregory E. Zschomler's newest book, 'The Amish vs. The Zombies'...An engaging mid-teen book for those Zombie fans and a great Christian message. I highly recommend it."

I also expect to have the trailer online next week which you will not want to miss because I think it is really good. The reason it is so good is because of the talent behind it. Yes, I think I did a pretty good job writing, directing, and editing, but I'm talking about my cameraman, Isaiah, the actors Anna and Hezekiah, and my producer Ruth.

Okay, okay, I admit it.

The truth is that you can get the book NOW, like in  just a couple of minutes. The Kindle ebook is available (or will be as of 9 p.m. June 2) on Amazon for instant download. You may also order the paperback from Amazon now and have it in a week. But why not wait and get a signed copy and save on postage. Buy local and support local business.

The Amish vs. The Zombies: Proofed and Submitted

I spent much of this afternoon and evening working on entering the final changes to "The Amish vs. The Zombies." The final cover and text files have been uploaded for print approval. I should hear tomorrow if they are print ready, then printing can go ahead.

Thank you to Suzi Geodert for being my second final proofer. Your help is so MUCH appreciated.

I'd also like to thank my cover photographer and videographer Isaiah Zschomler for shooting the cover photos and the trailer footage, Anna B. and Hezekiah Zschomler for being the cover models and video actors. [The Trailer is almost done, too; it just needs the voice-over recorded and added to the edit.]

Hopefully, we're on schedule for the June 21 release.
