Undead Kev has risen! Children's book launch and prizes.

My Zombie DogTo celebrate the launch of my new book, Undead Kev, I'll be giving away a Kindle and Amazon Gift Card!
When I wrote My Zombie Dog, a favourite amongst zombie-loving kids, teachers and grandparents, I never imagined turning the story into a series. The little undead dog told her story and that was the end of that. Until ...
My Zombie Dog told the story of Zane, a teenage boy, who receives a horrible dog for his birthday. The dog dies, the dog rises... and there the adventure begins. However, one character who appeared just briefly won the hearts of many readers; his name is Kev.
I received emails, messages and pleas from readers to write another story with more Kev time. I wasn't so sure, but Kev thought it was a great idea. So... Undead Kev was created. Here's a little about the book:

Undead Kev kids zombie books great read


Kev was strange, sluggish and smelled disgusting ... and that was before he became a zombie!
Zane and Kev, best mates forever. Side by side, they’ve been through crayon chewing (Kev), nose picking (Kev), and losing their trunks in the public pool (yep, that was Kev, too). They even faced the zombie apocalypse together... until Kev got bit. 
 Can their friendship survive if Kev is a zombie? 
 Zane feels guilty and blames himself for Kev’s condition. Kev blames him too. But then Kev is kidnapped by invisible stealth-monkeys and taken to an evil government facility to be their next experiment. Will Zane be brave enough to rescue his ex-best buddy and save the friendship?

To celebrate the rising of Undead Kev I'm having a launch party and you're all invited! I'll be running an online book tour for Undead Kev and there will be some cool prizes; you could win a Kindle or an Amazon gift card, just by participating!
