Iowa City, IA, June 30, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Friday the 13th evokes images of black cats, broken mirrors, and bad luck. The superstitious stay home; the not-so-superstitious laugh nervously as they go about their day—all the while looking over their shoulders. There is good reason to fear Friday the 13th this year, the zombie apocalypse is about to be unleashed at The Haunted Bookshop (www.thehauntedbookshop.com) in Iowa City, Iowa at 7PM.
Join a trio of local authors, Michael Koogler, Jed Q. Peterson, and Jaren Riley, as they release their literary juggernaut upon the world. Hade’s Gambit, Book 1 of the Krypteia Conspiracy, is the epic beginning of the last days, standing tall in the company of such apocalyptic classics as The Stand, by Stephen King, and Swan Song, by Robert McCammon.
“It’s all about Hade,” Jed Peterson says. “This is a bad guy unlike any bad guy you’ve ever encountered. We guarantee you that before you’re finished with Hade’s Gambit, you’re going to be cheering for him and wondering why your parents raised you so wrong.”
“It’s been a long time coming,” Jaren Riley adds. “We’ve been stirring up these zombies for years now and the world has no idea what is about to break. This definitely isn’t your mama’s zombie apocalypse.”
“Someone alert Hollywood!” Mike Koogler chimes in. “Stars like Ashton Kutcher and Duane ‘The Rock’ Johnson need to clear their schedules. This is flat out…the next big thing.”
Mbedzi Publishing (www.mbedzipublishing.com) is thrilled that this future best seller uses so much local talent – from Iowa City/Cedar Rapids authors, to a Tipton-raised publisher and editor, to a Cedar Rapids-based cover artist. “Iowa not only rocks,” Karen Anderson, President of Mbedzi Publishing says, “it zombie rocks!”
So come laugh in the face of evil at the Haunted Bookshop in Iowa City, Iowa at 7PM on Friday, July 13th, 2012. Keep your name off Hade’s naughty list!
