"The other big news this
month is that I'm releasing an extra Zom-B book in March!!! Called
Zom-B Circus, it's not a full-length book - it will be about half the
size of a normal Zom-B book - and it doesn't focus on B Smith (though
she has a small but crucial part to play in it). Instead it focuses on a
teacher from B's school who gets caught up in the madness when the
zombies attack, and undergoes a most surprising and disturbing
transformation. The book will be a stand-alone, though it also links in
with B's story in certain ways, featuring appearances by some of the
characters we have already met (or will meet soon) in the main series.
It also gives us a chance to have another look at Mr Dowling and his
merry crew in wild, kill-crazy action, to catch up on what they've been
up to while they've been keeping low in the series..."
