I’ll be selling and signing copies of THE KILLING FLOOR, THE INFECTION and TOOTH AND NAIL at HorrorHound September 7-9, 2012, joining other Permuted Press authors Timothy Long, Eloise Knapp and Jessica Meigs. The show looks like it’s going to be great, with some awesome celebrity guests including Michael Biehn, Casanda Peterson (Elvira), Lance Henrikson, Tom Savini, Linda Hamilton and others. Hope to see you there! Learn more about this convention here.

I’ll be returning to Seattle May 25-27 to attend Crypticon at the Hilton Seattle Airport and Conference Center, joining some great Permuted Press authors. I’ll be at a table signing books, including THE KILLING FLOOR, THE INFECTION and TOOTH AND NAIL, and will be speaking on two panels: “Zombies: Why Won’t They Die?” at 3:00 PM on Saturday, and “Permuted Press Authors Discuss Zombie Fiction” at 1:00 PM on Sunday.
Also be sure to sign up for Zombie Tag, which looks like it’s going to be a cool event.
Hope to see you there!
Jess Resides Here recently reviewed THE INFECTION, saying it “creates total terror right to the marrow … This is one of the best if not the best zombie book I’ve ever read … Craig creates a stark, brutal world and the most terrifying zombie scenario I have ever read … It should be mandatory for any zombie lover.”
Complete review here.
TamingTheBookshelf.com Names THE INFECTION one of the Top 10 Non-YA Books of 2011, writing, “I don’t know where or how I found this book, but I’m so glad I did. Crazy Action-Packed Zombie Novel with original twists that totally blew my mind. This one has MOVIE written all over it. This is more of a ‘boy’ book, but I’m a girly-girl and I really enjoyed it too.” Thanks, Tara!

Jacqueline Druga, author of FLU by Permuted Press, reviews THE INFECTION in this video review, giving it 5 stars and calling it “amazing! It captured me, I was engrossed, I couldn’t put it down. I had nightmares!” At the end she gave me what is probably the highest compliment a horror author can receive. Thanks, Jackie!

Left Overs reviews THE INFECTION, writing, “DiLouie’s greatest strength is in his ability to move the story along at a fast yet organic pace. There isn’t a single spot of unimportant or boring information, and the characters develop on their own … I was so impressed by THE INFECTION that I almost flipped to the first page to read it again … This book will appeal to readers of all levels of zombie experience, from the diehard survivalist who is counting the days until the apocalypse, to the closet zombie reader. Whatever you do, go and purchase this book RIGHT NOW!” Thanks, Holly Ann!

I’d like to announce a few important milestones for my latest work of apocalyptic horror, THE INFECTION. Published by Permuted Press in February 2011, the novel has sold nearly 10,000 copies and has more than 100 reviews on Amazon (average 4.2 stars), while the book trailer has more than 2,000 views on YouTube. If you haven’t read it yet, I hope you’ll pick it up. If you have, thank you for reading my work and making its success possible! And get set for THE KILLING FLOOR, the sequel, coming out in just a few months!
Bricks of the Dead is an awesome web comic about the zombie apocalypse created entirely from LEGO dioramas complete with voice bubbles and commentary by the author/artist. It’s a lot of fun, and I highly recommend it. (See their review of TOOTH AND NAIL here.) The site also does interviews, and I was happy to be interviewed about my work, particularly the upcoming THE KILLING FLOOR, the sequel to THE INFECTION coming out from Permuted Press in early 2012. It was a fun interview, with different questions than I’m usually asked, and I hope you’ll check it out here.
