The Trip - A Novel By Tim Morgan

At the end of the world...what would you do?

This is not your typical zombie apocalypse

Meghan, Chris and Dave set out on a cross-country bicycle ride - not realizing a zombie virus outbreak was coming.

A teen road trip becomes a desperate fight for survival against increasing zombie hordes. Can they survive?

A Coming of Age Story Set Against the Backdrop of a Zombie Apocalypse

The summer after senior year, Meghan, with her friends Dave and Chris, set out on what should be the trip of a lifetime: a bicycle trip from Billerica, Massachusetts to Seattle, Washington. Meghan longs for her independence; Dave secretly has a crush on Meghan; and Chris is reeling from recently being diagnosed HIV positive as the result of a bad decision.

As the three plan their trip, a previously unidentified flu is detected in Mumbai, India. The disease begins a relentless march around the globe. By the time Meghan and her friends are halfway across the country, the horrible truth is known: this is not a normal flu virus. The disease turns its victims into flesh-eating zombies.

Scared and stranded in the middle of America, the three turn back in a desperate bid to make it home.

THE TRIP follows Meghan, Dave and Chris as they dodge zombies, try to stay alive, and make it through the drama of senior year. Unfolding through a series of blog posts, newscasts and traditional narrative, this is a unique spin on the zombie genre.

Praise for THE TRIP

Every book lover knows that moment when it's past when you should have gone to sleep, but there's less than 100 pages left and you just" need to finish. It takes an engaging and well written story to make that happen, and The Trip is that and more."

Special Thanks

Bringing a project like this to life takes hard work and dedication on behalf of everyone involved. Working with a large, talented team and geographically scattered team is not easy to do. Watching everyone contributing their unique skills to bring your vision to life is a humbling experience.

Special thanks to the original cover and trailer team: Kurt Belcher, Ken Lateer, Daniel Patrick Rice and Shawn Aldridge. I couldn't have gotten here without you.

Extra special thanks to Felicia Flanagan for believing in the project so much she became Meghan's voice.

Thank you to all my friends who read the early drafts and kept me going in the dark days when I had no idea whether this was going to work.

Thank you to the fans - without you, none of this would be possible!

And very special thanks to my family, for putting up with all the crazy antics of an indie writer.
