Undead Ultra Blog Tour - Day 5


Review from The Avid Reader. Excerpt: "I am going to have to give the author Camille Picott kudos for Undead Ultra is one of the best books I think I have ever read. It is very well written and the characters are well developed. Undead Ultra is on my top ten books of 2016."

Brizzlelass posted an interview, which you can read here

What inspired the story?

One thing I really wanted to do is write a genre novel that featured adult characters. I get tired of stories about twenty-somethings with very little life experience. As an almost-forty wife and mother, I feel like characters with similar mid-life experiences are largely underrepresented in genre fiction. In Undead Ultra, Kate is widower in her late-thirties. She got pregnant in college and dropped out as a result. Her son is her life. Frederico is in his early sixties. He’s  a recovering alcoholic struggling to connect with an estranged daughter. Both characters have life experiences and life stories that I hope will appeal to adult readers.

Undead Ultra Blog Tour - Day 4


Rambling Reviews gives Undead Ultra 5 Stars! Excerpt: "I don’t review many books five stars but I’d give this one six if I could . . . I devoured it. I seldom finish a book in under a week’s time – not because I don’t read quickly or a lot, but because I have a short attention span and I’m often reading 5, 6, 7 books at a time."

Undead Ultra Blog Tour - Day 3


Archaeolibrarian posted my Top 10 list of things I would want with me in a zombie apocalypse. Can someone please pass the crowbar?

Mama Reads Hazel Sleeps posted a review. Excerpt: Undead Ultra was very different from any other recently released zombie apocalypse novel in that it had the added level of endurance race and it’s set amidst the sudden onset of said apocalypse with no preparation.  Faster paced and with more seemingly insurmountable obstacles than most novels will tackle in such a short time, there is definitely not a dull moment to be had. 

Want to see what served as my inspiration for this book? Check out my Top 10 list at Books N Pearls.

Natural Bri gave Undead Ultra a 5 star review on Goodreads! Excerpt: Overall, this was a unique and exciting read. I was very impressed by it and found that it held my interest and attention from cover to cover. I highly recommend it if you are a zombie lover looking for something new.

Undead Ultra Blog Tour - Day 2


The Book Sirens posted a review. Here is an excerpt: Very well written, suspenseful, and at times very touching story. The characters are likable, and you feel yourself become invested in their run, in their efforts not only to get to Carter, but also Alesia, Frederico’s daughter. You get flashbacks that help you understand the relationship between the two friends, as well as their children and other events that have lead to this day. / Also, the author is either very knowledgeable first hand, or has done thorough research, on runners and what all it takes to be able to do that kind of thing. I don’t at all, so it was interesting to see what all goes into running marathons (or longer).

The Recipe Fairy also posted a review. Here is an excerpt: This book was absolutely unique and had me completely absorbed into it's pages!! Very fast-paced with complex characters and complex emotions, I found myself completely unable to put this book down! This isn't your typical zombie novel! I've never read a book quite like this- it'a almost a new genre all on it's own! I never really knew much about long-distance running, but I consider myself properly enlighted with all the details the author provided. The emotions were incredibly complex with quite a few moments that had me giggling to myself! I loved how the zombies didn't just take over the world in 30 minutes, they were realistically introduced slowly. Fast-paced with quite a few plot twists- including one huge one that took me completely by surprise- I completely enjoyed this awesome book! I would absolutely LOVE to see a sequel come out soon! This book was wildly entertaining and definitely in my top reader picks list now!!

Undead Ultra Blog Tour - Day 1

Toni from My Book Addiction says: Undead Ultra is an awesome story that gave me something new and refreshing to enjoy about the genre. Sure, there are the usual obstacles that you find in many zombie books, but there were unique attributes throughout this one that I enjoyed very much. The characters are complex and the pacing of the storyline couldn’t be any more perfect. Full of suspense, terror, and even some heartfelt moments, this is one of my favorites of the year.

BooksChatter posted a really fun interview. You can read the full interview here.
