Big News for Permuted Press and THE BECOMING Series!

Last night, Permuted Press released a press release announcing the creation of Permuted Platinum and a distribution partnership with Ingram Publisher Services.

“PERMUTED PLATINUM is a new line created specifically for worldwide distribution of printed products in both trade paperback and hardcover formats. Previously available only in print-on-demand formats, the Platinum line will be Permuted Press’s first venture into full offset print runs of their most popular titles.”

This is huge news for Permuted Press, because it means that selected books from their catalogue will be made available in bookstores nationwide over the coming year.

What does this mean and why do I feel the need to post about it here?

Well, check out the list of confirmed titles for 2014:

“Confirmed titles releasing over the next 12 months for the PERMUTED PLATINUM line include:

14 by Peter Clines
The Ninth Circle by Brendan Deneen
Blood Brains and Bullets and Legacy of the Living duology by Sean Liebling
Pretty When She Dies by Rhiannon Frater
The Infection and The Killing Floor duology by Craig DiLouie
Pretty When She Kills by Rhiannon Frater

THE BECOMING Named One of Barnes and Nobles Best Zombie Books of the Decade!

Yes, you read that right. My little book The Becoming recently landed a slot at #18 on Barnes & Noble’s 20 Best Zombie Books of the Last Decade list! As you can imagine, I am THRILLED about this. It totally made my day to see my book listed among some of the greats from the last ten years. You can check out the entire list right here.

The Becoming as a series also got a shout-out on Dana Fredsti’s article My Top 7 Favorite Horror Series over on the Huffington Post, a bit of an honorable mention, if you will. You can check out her list of awesomeness by clicking here.

Another post coming up shortly; I’m still putting it together, but it involves preorders of The Becoming: Revelations, just as a little teaser. 😀

Cover Reveal: THE BECOMING Re-Issuing With New Cover!

Ladies and gentleman, may I present to you the brand new cover for The Becoming, book one in my zombie apocalypse series published by Permuted Press?

Can we say “awesome cover”? Stephanie Mooney of Mooney Designs created it, and I think it looks amazing!

Though the new cover isn’t quite showing up on the retailers yet (we’re working on that), you can still, of course, pick up The Becoming for only $4.99 on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, Kobo, and iTunes! It’s also available as an audiobook on Audible.com!

Giveaways, Ground Zero, and Autographed Copies!

Just a recap post of the past week or so, in case you missed anything!

First, I have several autographed copies of The Becoming available for purchase for only $15! (This includes shipping, handling, packaging, all that fun stuff.) I accept payments by Paypal and Google Wallet (aka Google Checkout), and I mail as soon as the payment clears/hits my bank account. (Usually within three days.) Copies can be personalized too. If you’re interested in purchasing one, just comment here or hit me up on my email at jessica.meigs@gmail.com to make sure there’s copies left before you pay. (Also, I use a different email address for my Paypal account than what’s listed here, so please don’t try to send money to the jessica.meigs address!)

Secondly, in case you somehow managed to miss all the news, The Becoming: Ground Zero is now available (early!) in eBook format on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords! You can click here to see the synopsis, the incoming praise, and the purchasing links. Paperback and audiobook formats are coming soon! (I will eventually have autographed paperbacks of Ground Zero available for direct purchase too.)

I somehow managed to miss a review of Ground Zero on BuyZombie from mid-June, so here it is for your reading pleasure! A sample of the review:

With some sequels there is always the slight pause while the reader considers that maybe the sequel won’t match up to the first book. That is not the case. Ground Zero delivers pulse pounding action, edge of your seat action, and tension. It’s a rollercoaster ride from start to finish, so strap yourself in for one hair-raising ride through a zombie apocalypse.

Due to popular demand, I’ve started a Facebook group where the novels can be discussed without fear of publicly posted spoilers! You can chat with fans (and with me!), and I’ll be posting exclusive short stories and teasers from future works in the series too. You can check out and join the group right here!

And don’t forget, there’s a Goodreads giveaway going on for The Becoming! You can enter it right here!
