What was your inspiration for this book?
My inspiration was a mix between my love of what I call military horror and how I imagined many of the guys I served with would react towards a zombie apocalypse. While writing the book I often had to stop, close my eyes and imagine the guys both at work and at play. Those thoughts made this my favorite novel I’ve written to date.
Why did you decide to produce an audiobook?
Many of my readers are over the road truck drivers and other professionals that spend their time behind the wheel and this is the only way they can have the time to enjoy my stories.
How did you choose the reader for the book and the production company?
I listened to a samples from the site, then I asked for a reading, I also received readings from producers who liked the genre. I went with one that was the best fit for my story.
