About

Living With the Dead is a fictional, real time blog set in the zombie apocalypse. Like many of you out there, I'm nuts for zombie stories. I had a craving back in early 2010 to read a zombie tale that focused on the small details about living in a world devastated by the zombie plague. Problem was, there weren't any I could find that delved into the everyday elements. 

So I wrote my own. 

The blog is free to read at www.livingwiththedead.net and I collect it and sell it in eBook form. One of the things I hear most often is that it would make a great web series. Hence this campaign.

My goal is to turn out an adaptation of the blog that is free to watch online and keeps to the spirit of the source material. Obviously with a production this small I won't be able to do a lot of the things that the written word can do since the budget for books is essentially limitless. 

But I believe with your help and support that we can produce something great. Together, we can explore a world beset by terror and see how the surviving few change to meet the needs of a life seemingly without hope. If you're a fan of zombie stories, be they books, comics, movies, or television shows, then you know the truth:

They aren't zombie stories at all. They're people stories. And with your help, we can tell a good one.
