New Favorite Author Alert!

Earlier on this blog, I shared just how much I loved the movie Warm Bodies and mentioned that I seriously enjoyed the book it was based on (I freaking adored the story of Julie and 'R'). I may have even developed a small fangirl crush on the author, Isaac Marion. Not only does the guy write about zombies (my absolute fav), but he can sing (his haunting alternative album is available on iTunes), he's into tattoos (like myself) and he's FUNNY. As in freaking hilarious. I've had the honor of chatting with him a time or two on Twitter and he never fails to crack me up.

Below is a recent post to his website, announcing that he opened a PO Box. Just try not to laugh when reading it.

Dare I say, Isaac Marion has officially replaced Stephen King and J.K. Rowling as my favorite author. While he may not quite be in their league yet, the fact that I'm able to actually interact with someone whose writing I adore makes him king of the written word on my list. Now that you understand just how much I admire his writing, you can about imagine my excitement to learn (from the author himself) that he's hoping to release a prequel to Warm Bodies later this month!
Will we get to learn the story of 'R' before the zombie outbreak? Will we get to experience the horror of the outbreak first catching on through our beloved characters' eyes? Will I be able to wait any longer?

Even though I already own the Kindle version of Warm Bodies, I bought the original hardcover and shipped it to Washington for Mr. Marion's autograph. If he's reading this blog (first I'm going to go crawl into a corner and die of embarrassment) I promise that I won't be sending anything toxic anytime soon. Because that would be just dumb. You have way more brilliance to share with this world.

I haven't read the book but I know people love it! I hope to read the book before I see the movie.

I found your post on the book blogs site and have become a new follower. I'd love it if you checked out my blog and the blogger book club I started.
