One thing I enjoy in my Neeta Lyffe, Zombie Exterminator world is satirizing current events and giving them crazy twists. One such “victim” was the government bailout of the automotive industry.  By 2040 in Neeta’s world, the US had just given up and purchased several companies to run outright, under the moniker “GovMo” or “Government Motors.  They make such fabulous models as the Entitlement (which is a road hog), the Deficit (which has trouble slowing down), and the Refund, which is their economy model.  These make appearances in Neeta Lyffe, Zombie Exterminator.

However, the real fun came when in an idea chat, we were told to write ad copy for a car that ran on manure.  The GovMo CrapMaster was born.  I had such fun with it, I actually made commercials:

Later that year, I decided to write the second Neeta Lyffe novel, and decided environmental terrorism might be fun to tackle with zombies–and what better target than a manure refinery that supplies the CrapMaster?

I Left My Brains in San Francisco comes out September 1, starring Neeta Lyffe, her partner Ted, his rival, Marcel, and zombie mimes, zombie suicides, and zombie terrorists.  I hope you’ll check it out.
