I bid you good day, gentlemen and gentlewomen. As you no doubt know, I am headed for the great city of Atlanta for Walker Stalker Con, the new zombie convention from the Walking Dead folks. I’m debuting my new awesome zombie book, Deadtown Abbey, at the Con. You’ll remember that Reviva Las Vegas! is coming in 2014, and at the Con is going to be the new zombie novel and the book of my zombie lectures. TWO BOOKS! MADNESS!
Anyway, I made the following ad to go on the Walker Stalker Con:
They needed a logo to go on their website that was 300×250 pixels, something that would link back to my website. So I decided “Why not do an ad especially for the new novel?” I thought it was a good idea since I have purchased www.DeadtownAbbey.com to put it to work! (The site won’t be up until September 12, so hold off on clicking that there link.) On the book’s website, I will have the first chapter, ordering information, and other related goodies.
I was a bit concerned about using some copyrighted photos, but I figured that they’ve been so changed to zombification and fire and such that I think I’m safe. I tried several fancypants fonts, but they were too intricate for the size of the ad, so I went with the “scary” Chiller fonts for the main text, and the readable-yet-slighty-fancy Monotype Corsiva for the scroll. I also ran Lord Grantham’s face through the awesome Zombieland Zombify Me! app. (It requires Flash, so tough for all of us iPad users, but no bitterness! Moving on!)
Your thoughts are most welcome, as always.
