"The time for picnicking has passed" - Dreadfully Ever After (Book Trailer)

The time for picnicking has passed.

Quirk Books really knows how to market their books. I always look forward to these mini-movies disguised as book trailers.

Zombies and regency women with katanas? If that doesn't grab your attention, check your pulse. You may already be one of the Unmetionables.

The latest original book in the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies series hit book shelves on Mar 22nd. Dreadfully Ever After by Steven Hockensmith is the sequel to the wildly successful Pride and Prejudice and Zombies that injects zombies and ninjas into the witty and romantic world of Jane Austen.

The story opens with our newly married protagonists, Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy, defending their village from an army of flesh-eating “unmentionables.” But the honeymoon has barely begun when poor Mr. Darcy is nipped by a rampaging dreadful. Elizabeth knows the proper course of action is to promptly behead her husband (and then burn the corpse, just to be safe). But when she learns of a miracle antidote under development in London, she realizes there may be one last chance to save her true love—and for everyone to live happily ever after.
