Welcome to the new KirkAllmond.com website! It’s a whole super-helping of me, your friend and all around amazing guy, Kirk Allmond!
Okay, clearly the embarrassment of having my own name as a domain is a little odd for me, but when the PR guy tells me to register my brand, I’m going to listen. So here I am typing on KirkAllmond.com.
So, since you’re here, I guess I should tell you a little about myself.
First off. My name is Kirk Allmond and I love zombies. I love slow George A. Romero style zombies, I love fast rage zombies, I love middle speed zombies, I love smart zombies and dumb zombies and…. Oh… What, you knew that? Okay, fine. Here’s some more.
My co-author Laura Bretz and I write a post apocalyptic series of zombie books called What Zombies Fear. We’re just about to finish the fifth book in the series, which is called Declaration of War. This book centers on Victor Tookes’s crew splitting up all over the US. It’s the second to last book in the What Zombies Fear Series. Laura has brought an amazing emotional edge to the series, as well as a couple of new characters. Her writing and mine are very different styles, and yet we’ve each found that over the year and a half that we’ve worked together on this project, a little of each of us has crept into the other’s writing style.
I’m also 90% finished with a new book called The Colcoa Tailings. There will be details about it as soon as we’re done with this 5th What Zombies Fear novel.
On top of writing, I also own The Zombie Preparedness Initiative, a 20,000 member global initiative, who’s mission is to help the world be ready for the inevitable Zombie Apocalypse. (Are you done giggling yet? no? Okay, I’ll wait.). In all seriousness, I don’t particularly believe that the dead will ever walk the earth. But I do know one thing. If you’re ready for zombies, you’re ready for anything.
But wait, there’s more here at kirkallmond.com, home of the fantastic, amazing, talented, wonderful, loveable Kirk Allmond.
I’m also starring in a television show called Survivalist of the Dead. The show has a similar aim as The Zombie Preparedness Initiative, to inform, to convince people to get prepared, and to entertain.
You can check out the trailer for the new show on our youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/SurvivalistOfTheDead or over at www.survivalistofthedead.com
Lastly, and most importantly, I’m the father of the coolest little kid ever. My son Jack is 5 years old. He’s the basis of Max in What Zombies Fear. Most of the interactions between Victor Tookes and Max are actual, real conversations between Jack and I. He’s my little buddy, and I love him like crazy.
I hope you’ll stick around, read some posts here and on my other sites, whatever may interest you. If it’s zombie related, I’m probably into it somewhere.
