Publishers Weekly gives THE FIRST DAYS a starred review

Monday, May 16th, 2011

This is amazing news coming out of the publishing industry, everyone. Publishers Weekly, one of the leading publications in the publishing industry around, gave The First Days a starred review!

Here’s an excerpt from the overall review:

This outstanding first effort, the first book in a trilogy, will appeal greatly to zombie fans, but the undead are merely the catalyst for a far more disquieting tale of societal collapse.

You can check out the entire review by clicking on this string of text.

Share the news with your friends, your family, your colleagues, coworkers, everyone you know, because this is absolutely some of the best news we could have ever asked for.

Hello everyone,

The people at AstheWorldDies.com here. We recently wanted to branch out to the blogging community to ask for support in promoting The First Days. The release date is slowly but surely coming upon us and we would like any and everyone interested to help us in our promoting endeavors. Because of this, we, the staff, have created two HTML templates that you can use to promote the book before the release or the day of the release.

To download the pre-release promo, please click here.

To download the post-release promo, please click here.

Both HTML codes were created in Windows Live Writer and pasted into Microsoft Word 97 – 2003 formats.

Again, thank you for all of your support. It is much appreciated.
