CDC Posts "Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse"

In order to raise more interest for survival preparation, the CDC (Center for Disease Control) has posted Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse. Supposedly, there were 25,000 viewers for this post on the first day it was up, and it crashed the site. I was finally able to get on it tonight after trying several times yesterday. It's interesting that they used the same photo that I did for the top of the Eaters: Dark Journey cover. It's good to know that our government is spreading the word about the possibility of a zombie apocalypse!
Are you ready?


  1. I read about this on someone else's blog yesterday. That's just weird. I haven't looked at it yet. I wondered if it was a joke.

    That must be a popular picture!

  2. Some people have tied the CDC zombie post to the rapture supposedly happening tomorrow. Is our government warning us? What do they know that we don't?

    It is a popular picture. I had a short hissy fit when I saw it on a vampire novel earlier this year, but it is for sale online, so I'm sure lots of people have snagged it for various uses. I thought the images by this photographer fit my Eaters series perfectly.

  3. I really like the cover work on your books, Michelle. May I inquire who does them?

  4. Hi Anonymous. Thank you very much for the complement. I did the covers for The Gardener and Eaters: The Beginning myself. It was my concept for Eaters: Dark Journey, but Anya Kelleye put it all together. If you need cover assistance, I highly recommend her.
