    Day By Day - J.L. Bourne

    This thread is to talk about this very awesome zombie book series Day By Day written by the one and only J.L. Bourne. I know there were lots of fans from the other forum so I decide to start this up. Do you have any theories for the next book? Speculations?

    #1 Day By Day: Armageddon (excerpt Chapter 1)
    #2 Day By Day: Beyond Exile
    #3 Day By Day: Shattered Hourglass (Amazon pre-order) - Release date: Nov 15, 2011 (?) --will be available on Kindle and paperback--

    For those of you who aren't familiar with the series...
    DBD is a first-person zombie survival story written by a real army guy in journal format. An off-duty military officer catches wind that something might not be right about strange occurrences in the world and doesn't report in when his unit is called. The zombie apocalypse begins to ravage the world and the dead wander the streets. The main character is successfully able to live quietly in his fortified house and eventually discovers one of his neighbors survived as well. In a last ditch effort to nullify the zombie hoards, the government launches a plan that forces them out of hiding and having to find a way to survive out in the open. Unfortunately they soon learn that the governments plan backfired.
    The author is not afraid of going into graphic details. It'll have you "ewwing" and "ughing" and may even teach you something you didn't know! There's military jargon and slang thrown around but he does well in keeping it to the minimum so civilians can understand it.

    I've been keeping tabs on the progress of his third book via Facebook/Twitter. As of last week he's up to 73,000 words and counting! He recently launched a "teaser" video on youtube based on the book. It's corny and I'm glad the books are better.

    Sweet! I didn't know he was making another one. Can't wait! I think it was you who recommended me the books originally. They are so engrossing I pretty much read them both in a night. I'll have to re-read them. Off to watch that video now!

    I read these books just before I started listening to We're alive, I can't wait for the next one. Best zombie media with "Shamblers" I have ever seen. I wonder what the chances of a guest appearance from Mr. Bourne would be?
