Press Release -- "Austin, TX, April 14, 2015 – Scott Shoyer, a local Austin, Texas author with a wicked mind for horror, has just had his debut zombie novel, OUTBREAK: THE HUNGER, published by Sev-ered Press. Shoyer’s novel was released on April 14, 2015 and is now available in paperback and eBook formats.

OUTBREAK: THE HUNGER is a fast-paced, gory look at events leading up to the outbreak of a zombie virus. This virus, Shoyer promises, is one you haven’t seen before. The story unfolds from the perspective of two separate groups of people: An elite group of soldiers acting “Above Top Secret” that try to identify and stop the outbreak, and a group of families visiting the Austin Zoo, where the outbreak begins to spread. Trapped at the zoo, the small group of visitors must band together to try and survive the deadly outbreak. Survival, though, won’t be easy especially since they are at ground zero!

Shoyer promises readers his debut novel, the first in a trilogy, will offer a fresh and unique look at what he believes has become a stale sub-genre. As Shoyer says:

“Sure there’s a lot of zombie novels out there, but I set out to give horror and zombie fans something different. I didn’t want to write just another version of the same old story.”

Joe McKinney, celebrated author of the DEAD WORLD series, had the following to say about Scott Shoyer’s debut novel:

“Not only is [OUTBREAK: THE HUNGER] the kind of wild ride you expect from good old fashioned horror, but it is a zombie novel with a truly original take on the genre. I guarantee you, the story has not been told this way before. I envy you getting to read it for the first time.”

Being a lifetime fan of horror films and novels (especially zombies), Shoyer was able to avoid the clichés that have become standard fare in this sub-genre and managed to pump some fresh blood and brains into the genre.

Shoyer is hard at work completing his follow up to OUTBREAK: THE HUNGER, which will be a direct sequel that takes place two years after the events of the first novel."
