The Wolf Man

I got my second book blurb, and this one is a doozie... Wow, I can't believe I used that word. I have never used that word before. Hmm. My age is showing.

Anyway, I got another blurb for my novel, not from The Wolf Man, but from Award winning comic book writer, Marv Wolfman, creator of Blade and The New Teen Titans. Marv had a lot of nice things to say. I broke it up into three sound bites for you to see. Thanks for the blurb, Marv. You rock! And special thanks to my good friend, Michael Davis, for securing the blurb for me. Here it is:

...When the boy you’re palm-sweating crazy about is a zombie and you’re not, well, there might be relationship complications. And if you didn’t fit in before, why would you expect to now when you’ve got the whole not being undead thing working against you?

...Never Slow Dance With A Zombie is an inspired comedy-horror novel by E. Van Lowe that hysterically points out there isn’t that much difference between not fitting in in High School because you’re a bit different from everyone else, and not fitting in because you’re not one of the walking undead.

Van Lowe’s prose is fun and funny as well as insightful, and his story is filled the kind of antic bizarreness that definitely is High School, whether you’re a guy, a girl or a Zombie.

I think it's cool. I know we can't put it all on the book jacket. What do you think? Enquiring minds want to know.


  1. That's a really great blurb. I think if you had to choose only a piece of it for the book, the second is your best bet. It summarizes beautifully and made me laugh the most of the three. :D

  2. I agree, although I like the third bite as well. Let's see what the publisher chooses. Thanks for the comment.

  3. last two paragraphs make a great blurb; both are inclusion-worthy and who said brief is best...certainly not moi.

  4. I concur. What a great blurb. Congrats E!!
