Are You Zombie Ready?

Well, are you Zombie ready? We know someone who most certainly is; Molly Looby. How do we know? Molly came in on Sunday night, to share her awesome new book, ZA, with us.

Not only did Molly talk about her book, she also told us a little about Molten Publishing, the hybrid publishing company that she has set up with her lovely dad. The thing that makes Molten so special, is that Molly always gives feedback on submissions. If you want to know more, or you’d like to submit your YA writing, follow the link.

Back to ZA. ZA has been in Molly’s head for 5 years now and over that time, has completely transformed from the original manuscript to the gritty YA novel that it is today. That’s a long time to work on one project, but Molly is passionate about zombies and writing! She’s also been busily writing other novels at the same time.

During the course of the Q&A session, Molly told the audience about a great initiative called National Novel Writing Month. The very short version is that individuals commit to writing a 50K word novel in November. There’s a lot of support available to the writers though, so for more information, check out this link.

We had a great time with Molly. If you missed her, we have signed copies of ZA available in-store. And, if you’re a local(ish) school who would like a visit from Molly, let us know.
