50 Shades of Decay

And here is the cover reveal for our upcoming zombie erotica anthology, 50 Shades of Decay. I hope you'll all join me in a virtual round of applause for Rebecca Treadway for doing such an amazing cover. How she managed to fit all of the 50 author's names on the back is beyond mind boggling.
The anthology is a compilation of 50 very short stories about love and lust before and during the zombie apocalypse. The stories are as diverse as can be. Many are hard core. This is not an anthology for the faint of heart (or stomach). Sex is always messy, relationships always complicated. Our authors prove that it's even more so after death.
One of the things I love best about this anthology is the story titles. Many are truly unique. And so I've decided to run a contest. Please leave a comment, either here or on our FB page, voting for your favorite story title. The title that gets the most votes, wins. I will give an extra print copy to the author who's title wins, and also to one of the commenters who voted for the winning title. Commenters names will be drawn randomly. Please check back next Wednesday when I announce the winner to see if you won! Contest runs until midnight CST next Tuesday. And yes, authors, you can vote for yourself. But everyone only gets one vote.
And now for the Table of Contents. You'll see that we've got a wide range of talent, from Stoker-winning to first time published. Variety is the spice of life.

  1. I vote for Mandy DeGeit's Dead Things Don't Rise.

  2. I love Out With A Bang!

    Wow! Look at all the great authors I'm in with here. Hello great authors!


  3. I do like Menage a Trauma! Very pleased to part of this and can't wait to read the other 49 tales.

  4. If I can vote, I say "Die With Your Boots On"... very Iron Maiden


  5. I vote for "Dying Days: Chris Gray" by Armand Rosamilia

  6. Dead Things Don't Rise by Mandy DeGeit

  7. Pretty Kitty's Post-Apocalyptic Porn Palace. I can see that actually being used, lol.

  8. My Vote is for Pretty Kitty's Post-Apocalyptic Porn Palace by Jolie Chaton

  9. I choose Pretty Kitty's Post-Apocalyptic Porn Palace by Jolie Chaton!

  10. I vote for "Dying Days : Chris Gray by Armand Rosamilia. Yea Armand!!!

  11. I suppose since I can't choose between all 50, I'll go with the one I know. Dead Things Don't Rise by Mandy DeGeit :P

  12. I'd Say Dying Days: Chris Gray, by Armand Rosamilia

  13. My vote is for Pretty Kitty's Post - Apocalyptic Porn Palace by Jolie Chaton

  14. I am voting for "The Z-spot" by Benjamin Kane Ethridge

  15. My vote goes to I Was Legend by Jake Elliot.

  16. I'm one of the authors and not sure if I'm allowed to vote..
    But "The Z-Spot" gave me the giggles.

  17. As an author in the antho, my vote probably shouldn't count, but "Menage a Trauma," by Dan Lenard is a great title, with "The Z-Spot," by B. K. Ethridge running a hair's length behind. These two are no-brainers, what with their enticing play on words.

    That said, I don't see any title that puts me off. Some, too, while not immediately bell-ringing in terms of word-play, are intrinsically tantalizing, i.e., "Beautiful Music," by Kendrick, or "Glory," by Wilburn.

    Better than all these wonderful titles is when I get the chance to read all the stories.

    Thanks A.K.P. for putting together this project, every kinky, stinking, toothy bit of it.


    1. I've been sitting out some of the anthologies, Rob, but this one has something special and I had to submit. Glad to be on board with you, my friend.


  18. I'm going to grovel and vote for my own: 2 is for Taboo

  19. Pretty Kitty's Post-Apocalyptic Porn Palace by Jolie Chaton

  20. I've gotta go with "Pretty Kitty's Post-Apocalyptic Porn Palace" -- though "I Was Legend" made me wish I'd thought of it.


We love to hear from you! Please leave us a comment!
