I would like to thank Z Allora for taking the time to talk to us about her upcoming Club Zombie 2: Zombies Suck and more. There is also a giveaway, so stay tuned for that.
1. You have a new release coming out soon. What can you tell us about it?
Club Zombie 2: Zombies Suck is coming out:
Forget what you know about rotting corpses stumbling around in search of brains. My hot zombies need male ejaculate to survive. Club Zombie is set up to assist them in getting male essence until they find a mate to provide for their needs. Alex Waterman is a virgin top with a dominant streak whose religious mother abused him to the point where he dissociates from his sexuality and is afraid to orgasm. He’s in love with his roommate Ulrich.
Psychic abilities lead Ulrich to believe that Cutter is his true mate, but he can’t deny the strong pull of Alex, or of bad boy Storm, for that matter, Cutter’s best friend. It’s a hot mess of zombie lust and love.
2. What do you think is the most rewarding thing about writing M/M versus other genres?
Promoting equality through happily ever after’s. I believe we are promoting equality through understanding and knowledge our characters give the reader. It’s only a recent phenomenon that LGBTQIA stories are being shown with positive outcome. In the past, the endings were, shall we say, less than happy, and intended as cautionary tales.
3. If you could rewrite your first published novel what would you change?
Funny you ask this question. I am in the process of re-writing and re-releasing my first series (The Dark Angels), because I didn’t utilize deep point of view, nor did I put everything on the page that should have been there. I’ve added close to 30,000 words to With Wings and it has gorgeous new cover art.
4. If you could promote your books in anyway money no object what would you do?
I’d do a music video of The Dark Angels and Made in China. I can see it so clearly in my head… This concept is actually the basis of Made in China 2: The Temple of Heaven. A viral music video brings The Dark Angels to Suzhou China to meet the band signed to be the opening act for the Asian part of their tour. The drummer’s youngest brother may find his happily ever after… if his big brothers stay out of his way.
5. What’s the best thing you’ve ever had someone say about one of your books in an email or review?
The reader was going through chemo and used my words as a comfort read. My boys were with her in a terrible time and made her smile. Being able to touch someone and possibly make a reader’s day a little brighter… there’s nothing better.
6. If you could have a conversation with any famous author, who would you want to get writing tips from and what skill of theirs would you like to emulate?
I’d have a picnic on the banks of a river with Shakespeare… his words were poetry.
7. What one story made you lose sleep as a kid?
Anything without a happily ever after…
8. What Disney character would you be, and why?
Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo! I’d be Cinderella’s fairy godmother (a sexier version, with better clothing). But to get to make everyone’s wishes come true… wow. That would be awesome!!!!
9. What is next, what are you working on?
Club Zombie 2: Zombies Suck is coming soon. (I’m fighting with the blurb currently.)
The Ladyboy Chronicles: Illusions & Dreams is in the submission process. (I’m on pins & needles. It’s my first story with transgender characters… it’s based in Thailand so the term “ladyboy” is not offensive but embraced)
Also I will be re-releasing all four of The Dark Angels books and then I’ll put out Entwined: Lock & Key (a BDSM series)… Viking Haven (a space opera).
10. Where can readers find more about you on the web?

About the Author
Z. believes in soul mates, love at first sight, and overcoming all odds to find happily ever afters. Born in Upstate NY, Z. Allora and partner have spent the last fifteen years together traveling across the United States, the Middle East and Asia. These travels provide the inspiration behind many of the detailed settings and characters throughout Z.’s work. Z. received a Master degree in Psychology and Bachelor degrees in both English and Philosophy. (though Z’s editors would probably question the English degree). Z. is both a writer and a huge fan of M/M romance as well as Yaoi. It is said the pen is mightier than the sword. Z. thinks all writers and publishers of M/M are promoting equality, since everyone deserves a happily ever after.
