I got asked by someone today why I thought they should buy my book over something similar. That’s a perfectly good question considering how I’ll probably get asked that a thousand times over the course of my writing career. I figured this would be a great time to tell the world why I believe my book is good and different from others.
First of all, and I’ve said this before, The Human Race is not your typical apocalyptic nightmare. There is no war or natural disaster or disease that sends the planet spiraling down a staircase straight to hell. Humans are responsible for the bad things that happen. They thought the world needed the ultimate cure, the one thing that would end all of mankind’s suffering and illness. Of course, they thought wrong. Side effects come from just about everything humans create so naturally something bad would come from something that’s supposed to be good. Then, when humans try to cure this bad thing, another side effect comes along and, well, zombies and vampires are born.
These are the glittering, falling in love with the main character, or skip out on a meal because they want to change type of zombies or vampires. No. These things are mean, horrifying, murderous, and extremely disgusting creatures. The main character, Bridget, along with the rest of the human race are forced to share the world with these creatures in an ill-attempt to find safety. It’s hard not to lose people you care about in a world where death and danger looms around every corner. Safety isn’t so easy to find either.
Now, I’m not going to give away the entire book because, hey I want you guys to read it. Of the few people who have left reviews on Amazon, all of them have been great. They love how this is different than the norm and I’ve heard from a few that they just couldn’t put the book down. It kept them on the edge of their seat the whole wild adventure. As an author, I love hearing that and can’t wait to get more of that reaction. So, out of all this, The Human Race is a horror story filled with adventure, survival, and even some love. What kind of writer would I be if I didn’t add some kind of love to my work.
I hope this has provided all of you with a deeper insight to The Human Race and I’m hoping more of you think “Hey, this sounds interesting, I think I want to read this.” As for now, I’m happy and elated just knowing my dream, the one thing I’ve worked so hard on, is out there and I’m getting a positive reaction.
