Zachary Zombie and the Lost Boy

"Zachary Zombie and the Lost Boy" is an odd romp through a forest with emo bunnies, zombies and a magical stag. Throw in an innkeeper's daughter looking for her prince and a party at the graveyard and you have a truly odd story for children or adults.

This book has received hundreds of ratings, mostly positive, at various sites.

Smashwords
Amazon
Apple
Barnes & Noble

Description:
Zachary is the personal zombie of Gert the Wicked Witch. She sent him to fetch newts from the forest. Along the way, he finds a lost boy named Tobias who had been following an emo bunny in the hopes of holding it and making it feel better. When the boy asks nicely for help getting to his home in the village, Zachary agrees.

Along the way, they run into a cranky stag and a pretty woman who dreams of meeting a prince. A party in the cemetery isn’t the proper place to take a boy, but zombies aren’t always proper and one of the worst things about villagers is that they always seem to have a supply of pitchforks and torches.

Will the boy make it home? Will Zachary give in to the craving for brainsss?

I will check it out...STRANGE is what I'm hearing from reviews, so should be entertaining.

Going to download it right now! I've enjoyed all the stories so far, and I think "Test Pilot" is my favorite.

*grin* STRANGE describes pretty much all my writing.

@nookkatz, I hope you enjoy it.

@TrineDaely, My kids liked it, but they really are demented . . . I say that lovingly of course.

Hello all,

I've recently re-edited and smoothed out "Zachary Zombie and the Lost Boy." It's the second in the Stories for Demented Children Series. I originally wrote it two years ago and have learned a great deal about the craft of writing since then. The story is the same, it simply flows across the eyes better. I'm also adding links from more stores than I originally posted.

This is one of my most popular stories and views zombies in a rather different light.

I have added a new cover that is easier to read, and I believe much more attractive than the old one. I've also released a sequel to it, which I shall be promoting here shortly.

Thank you! I've corrected both instances.
