Night of the ZomBEEs

Cover art and design by Bo Kaier 
I'm just happy this one is finally out. It’s been through several agents, publishers, big and small, and finally after almost 4 years it’s up on Amazon in trade paperback. E-book will be along in November with an audio book available sometime in December, produced by Parsec Award winning podcaster, Rish Outfield. I’m also very grateful that Bo Kaier was available for the cover art. I’ll keep him in mind when it comes time to do the movie posters for the theatrical release. 

To fans of Night of the Living Trekkies: ZomBEEs is written for a slightly younger audience (13 - 18 plus) But it is filled with geeky goodness, tons of zombie culture mentions, genre references from James Bond to Star Trek, and it has a NotLT crossover in the early chapters. I challenge you to find it.

From the back cover: It’s Founders Day in Honeywell Springs, a day residents dress up in black-and-yellow costumes to celebrate the insect that gave the town its prosperity, the Honey Bee. But when a mad scientist releases a contagious swarm of mutant bees, it turns the townsfolk of Honeywell Springs into the walking dead, in bee costumes. It’s thirteen-year-old Shaun Ripley’s worst nightmare. Plagued with apiphobia, asthma, and panic attacks, Shaun must draw on his knowledge of his hero, James Bond, to stay alive. With his best friend, Toby, a fellow 007 enthusiast, and Sam, a bullying tomboy, Shaun must overcome his bee phobia and find a way to escape Honeywell Springs. Terrified, surrounded, and running out of time, the three must work together if they are to survive the Night of the ZomBEEs!
