Cover Reveal

Memoirs of a Neurotic Zombie by Jeff Norton cover reveal and extract

Today I have something fun and exciting for my awesome readers and that is a cover reveal and extract of Memoirs of a Neurotic Zombie by Jeff Norton. Now I was at a Faber event in January where Jeff did a reading from this book and I adored it, everyone in the room was laughing and it was fantastic and now I can’t help but read the below how he read it which really helps with the voice of the character, but hopefully its just as funny to everyone else! Now without further ado, I give you the MEMOIRS OF A NEUROTIC ZOMBIE COVER…

Yeah, isn’t it awesome? I might have preferred a few more flies buzzing around but as far as I am concerned this is great. It will definitely be picked up by those 9 or 10 years olds fascinated with dirt and zombies and things like that. I love the tag line too and honestly think it will be true! Anyway the extract is below, if you want to can carry on from my extract – which is the very beginning of the book – you can visit Kirsty’s blog The Overflowing Library.

Adam’s thoughts on germs

I died, and now I’m back – zombified. Apparently there was a funeral, which I don’t remember, and then a really dark grave, which I definitely do. It’s hard to forget climbing up through two metres of dirt.

And I should tell you; I don’t like dirt.Or mess.
Or filth.
Of any kind.

The school guidance councillor called it ‘early onset’ Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, but that when it comes to germs, it’s better to catch them too early than too late.
She also said I worry too much.
But I say, there’s a lot to worry about.

I worry about running out of shampoo. I worry about the factories that make nit-free candy and yet cannot guarantee that they’re made in a nut-free environment. I worry that there are no air bags in school buses. I worry about robots rising up against humanity. I used to worry a lot about dying, but I suppose I can cross that off the list now. But thanks to my unhelpful guidance councillor, I now have to worry about worrying too much, so the list doesn’t get any shorter. 

This is my strange story, and I swear on a stack of vintage comic books that it’s all true. So read on, if you dare.

But please wash your hands first. With anti-bac soap and hot water.
Ideally twice.
