She will be talking about her new book Apocalyptic Moon
“Dr. Dora Adler’s life has been in disarray since the beginning of the zombie apocalypse, but when she gets bitten by one of the undead, her whole world is turned upside down. Held captive in a secret underground lab, the tall, muscular hunk in the next cell is her only hope for salvation. Unfortunately, he claims to be a werewolf. Yeah, and she’s supposedly a witch. Dirk Gunderson is an alpha Arbor pack werewolf. Captured and collared, he’s sold to the zombie lab in hopes his blood serum can create a vaccine. He needs to escape, but not without the hot little brunette witch. In the midst of enemy werewolves and the hordes of undead, Dirk and Dora’s sexual tension ignites a blaze hotter than the desert highway. Along their journey, they battle the inevitable: a werewolf must never take a witch as a mate.”

I'm in my cave office finishing off book 2, in the After the Bane series. For now, I'm calling it Raven's Apocalyptic Moon, but I'm still thinking of another title. If you have read Apocalyptic Moon, perhaps you can help me with a title. Rave, our sultry naughty raven shifter is our heroine.

Most of you know that my spirit guide is the raven and my familiar is the wolf so when I found this artist I went crazy with giddy passion.The red riding cloak is fantastic! I think I might have cawed a few times. She permitted me to use her as my avatar. I'm so grateful that I'm sharing her link. Artist Aneta Chalimoniuk at Deviant Art She does great fantasy art and is open to doing booking covers.

I’d like to start by saying I was a wee bit dubious if I’d enjoy the mix of shifters and zombies. Ms. Gordon had me on the first page and continued to hold my interest throughout the entire story. The world she painted of life after zombies took over the world was so clearly written I could picture every scene she depicted. I absolutely loved how she introduced so many characters that I am now impatiently waiting to see when her next in this new series is released.
After checking her web page and not seeing a coming soon, I can honestly say I was almost as depressed as when I’ve read one of my favorite authors latest in a series and realized that I now had a year to wait for the next installment. That, in my humble opinion, is a very high recommendation for any reader to go out and buy this book.
It’s not only a full length shifter story, but it has all the elements that make it a great read. Eva Gordon gives you hot alpha men, sexy alpha women (shifter and not), danger, suspense and last but not least smoking hot sex between the hero and heroine.
While she writes some pretty gruesome scenes of zombies being killed and doing the killing, it made the book even more impressive to me. I can guarantee that if you enjoy a long, steamy, action packed story you will love Apocalyptic Moon by Eva Gordon. And if Ms. Gordon is reading this review I would like to beg you to please start writing the next installment NOW. LOL

As noted in (Apocalyptic Moon, heroine) Dr. Dora Adler’s brief memo to Shifter Consortium
Causative Organism: Z-phage retrovirus that attacks the brain. Other names include the zombie disease, zombie virus and ghoul virus. Known as the Bane in the secret shifter society.
Historical Record: Unknown origins. No zoonotic agent as in Banna virus. No recorded history of a patient zero. Theories about the first outbreaks range from a rabies mutation, biological weapons to debris from meteors.
Host: Humans only. Animals and Shifters do not become infected.
Mode of Transmission: Bite transmits infected blood and saliva and in some cases, blood spray can infect via open cuts. Quickly travels to central nervous system.
Incubation Period: Rapid. 24 to 48 hours.
Period of Incommutability: Bitten patients are permanently contagious and will rage and feed on the living. They remain in a resting stage during bright sunlight, otherwise they travel in swarms in search of fresh humans. They will continue to eat a person alive until he/she dies and the eaten dead become rigor mortis. Once rigor occurs the zombie stops eating the human.
Symptoms and damage: Bloodshot eyes, blinding headache, chills, high fever, seizures. As infection spreads, the skin turns grey and upon death, the patient reanimates and craves human flesh.
Frontal lobes are damaged so zombies can’t think. They are uncoordinated due to damage to cerebellum. Abnormal amygdala and hippocampus causes rage. Zombies do not feel pain and rely on the five senses to hunt.
Mortality Rate: 100% Mortality Rate.
Cure and Prevention: No cure, always fatal. Creation of vaccine years away. Quarantine the infected. The only way to stop the raging zombie is to destroy its brain. All rescued humans must be searched for bite marks and kept in quarantine for one week.

Apocalyptic Moon Review
Talk about a fun review. Barbara at Sun Mountain Reviews included a detailed review, fun pix depicting my characters, werewolves, places and of course zombies. But the best part is she included music that goes with the theme of Apocalyptic Moon. Do go in and have fun. Sun Mountain Reviews
