What is my book about? Well, let me tell you :)

Here is a brief summary of my book.  :)

This is taken from thousands upon thousands of query letter drafts.  Sigh.  Queries are challenging.  Understatement of the year.


I, Candace Marshall, detest, abhor, loathe–you get the idea–scary movies, especially if they include zombies.

So you can imagine how thrilled I was when my boyfriend surprised me with advanced screening tickets to the latest horror zombie flick, teeming with the movie industry’s hottest interactive features.

I was not the only one to walk out of the theater that day.  Gavin Bailey–only the world’s greatest actor (in my opinion), present as a favor to a filmmaking friend–followed me, although I’m certain we had completely different reasons for leaving.  Zombies jumping out at me as part of the “zombie movie experience” was not my idea of a good time.  But I think we can both agree that we were thankful we left.

An experimental drug, created to enhance the viewer’s perspective of the film, turned my sleepy town into a slathering mess of real, honest-to-goodness, live–er, I mean, dead–zombies.

Days turned into weeks, and I had to face my biggest fear, over and over again.  As in, face-to-face.  Not fun.

We teamed up with a small group of survivors and traveled in search of answers and, ultimately, a cure.

Gavin Bailey’s presence of mind and sacrificial actions quite nearly swept me off my feet, until he showed me he returned my secret feelings.  Then he definitely swept me off my feet.

This is my story–how I got the biggest surprise of my life, just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse than zombies.


Ta-dah!  There you have it, folks!  I know I can’t do a query in first person, like the book is written, but, hey, this is my blog, and I can do what I want!  lol.

Happy reading!  (In whatever book you are reading, if you are reading a book, that is…shout-out to Brian Regan.  Take luck!)

In Him,
