    from what i understand is the manuscript has been sent to the publisher and it's likely to be released within the next 4 months.

    but this is sort of conflicting with other info ranging from beginning to mid 2010:

    Publishers Weekly wrote:pocket in Seven-Book Deal for Zombies
    -- Publishers Weekly,07/09/2009

    Looking to cash in on the current craze for zombies, Anthony Ziccardi, v-p and deputy publisher of Pocket Books, has entered into a co-publishing venture with Permuted Press, best known for horror, dark fantasy and science fiction novels. The seven book deal was brokered by Marc Gerald at the Agency Group. The first title, Day By Day Armageddon, will be released in October in trade paperback with a 50,000-copy first printing. The second book in the series is slated to be released in February.
    Armageddon is Permuted’s biggest seller to date, selling about 25,000 copies. Other books in the deal have sold between 10,000 and 20,000 copies. Permuted began publishing in 2004 and has used print-on-demand to manufacture its titles.

    “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Permuted Press and expand their very successful brand.” said Ziccardi. “We feel the horror genre and zombies in particular, will be a growing category at retail. Even Hollywood seems to be focused on zombie tales and we feel that we are well positioned to capitalize on this trend.”

    The author was a member of the same writing site I used to be a member of... he helped me with my writing on several occasions, often reading full excerpts. Good guy and he fully deserves all the success he has achieved.

    I do have a dislike of Permuted Press and their machine-like authors who pump out several sub-par novels a year. So it's kind of refreshing to see Day by Day 2 taking so long.

    i can't think of any permuted press books that i've read. but that's just how things go. genre companies with writers under contracts who push out shit just so they can move on a year earlier.

    Amazing book. I was under the impression that the next book would be unrelated to the first though. :sad2:

    What? I'm like 100% positive I read somewhere that the next Day by Day novel he was writing took place in a different part of the country following different people. Maybe that has changed since that was said, but I know for a fact I read that somewhere official.

    If that's true, I wouldn't mind. The way the first book ended so abruptly, I assumed the guy went out raiding for supplies, and died.

    i'd assumed that because it ended so abruptly that he was sucking us in and leaving us wanting. but you may be right. maybe he did die while gathering supplies.

    i bought my nephew a copy of this for xmas, since he's a bigger zombie fanatic than i am...

    he fuckin loved it. he read it in a day, gave it to his dad to read and his dad read it that night. both of them loved it.

    it's pissing me off cuz the next book isn't out yet.

    My wife hates zombie shit, and she is reading WWZ. I'm hoping she'll read Day By Day, since it is the way better book.

    The way she reads, it'll take her like 15 minutes to finish Day By Day.

    wwz is awesome, don't get me wrong. i was mad about wwz when i first read it. i'd kept hearing about day by day eventually i caved in and bought it. it was the hardest book to put down. it's likely the best zombie book i've read.
