Day 21 – Eden’s Order Trilogy

Eden's Order Cover

Day 21 of #scrypthalloween shows the cover of my EDEN’S ORDER TRILOGY sans text. @dpipito did the art which depicts a tree that represents the tree of Knowledge in the Garden of Eden, but has hints of skin, blood, and bones to signify each novel within. This collection consists of the novels: FLESH AND LEFTOVERS, BLOOD THE SECOND HELPING, and BONES AT BREAKFAST. It also contains the spinoff short stories: ZOMBIE INCIDENTS, LEGENDS OF VAMPIRE, and IN CASE OF WEREWOLF, as well as a timeline of events.

It is available in print at lulu.com and Barnes and Noble sites, as well as in digital at Amazon…

Official description: In FLESH AND LEFTOVERS Gordon Lightcap and Moira Donatelli recruit survivors of #zombie incidents in preparation for something much more sinister.
BLOOD, THE SECOND HELPING takes the two on separate paths. Gordon seeks answers, assisted by an old flame. As they scour the globe in search of #vampire legends, Moira has aligned herself with Cain, but her goals are in question. BONES AT BREAKFAST places Gordon and Moira reluctantly working for the Russian military. Cases of #werewolf activity become obstacles in stopping Cain from finding the Garden of Eden.

Day 2 – Zombie Incidents

#1 Zombie Incidents - sCrypt Comics
#scrypthalloween Day 2 takes a look at the spinoff to yesterday’s post. ZOMBIE INCIDENTS came about when readers demanded more from my first novel. @dpipito helped with the cover and organization of the content. I wrote it originally as a graphic novel, and worked with 10 amazing artists that you can read about on my www.rickpipito.com. Since then it has been released also in short story text format and is available at lulu.com or as part of the Eden’s Order Trilogy on Amazon and Barnes and Noble sites……

Day 3 – Zombie influences

zombiBack in 2009 while I was working on my first novel, I had some great zombie influences.  I always try to take in multiple media for entertainment.  George A Romero’s “Of The Dead” movie series have always been a guilty pleasure.  The “Resident Evil” video game series and “Zombie Zin” wine still make it into my house to this day. And Joe McKinney’s “Dead City” was the first zombie novel I read that really made me like the genre.

Runners up were “Marvel Zombies” and Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”.

What are some of your favorite Zombie stories or influenced things?  Make sure to tag #scrypthalloween.
