Jordan’s Brains: A Zombie Evolution is free on Kindle August 17th and 18th!

Jordan’s Brains follows the journey of a psychotic yet friendly zombie expert whose gender is never revealed. Having prepared for the zombie apocalypse since childhood, Jordan is thrilled when hordes of the infected undead finally invade. With a bug-out bag and a confident grin, Jordan leaves the safety of the psychiatric hospital and wanders alone into the zombie-infested streets to rescue family and strangers alike. Everything seems perfect until Jordan’s loved ones start dying, and Jordan has to face the harsh reality that the zombie apocalypse isn’t going according to plan.

See what fellow zombies fans are saying about Jordan’s Brains:

Loved this book. Not as brutal and gory as most of the zombie books I’ve read, but it really didn’t need to be. Really funny at times, but more so in the beginning before things get serious. This book sets up all the traditional ‘rules’ of zombie literature and then knocks them down, including what exactly constitutes being a zombie. I suspect that, like myself, the author gets annoyed with the people that are hung up on what zombies ‘have to’ be and the way they ‘have to’ act. To me, the things that were different about this book were part of what made it great.

The main character was fantastic and I loved that, in another of the book’s breaks with tradition, you never found out his or her gender. (Review by Ian McClellan, author “Zombie Apocalypse 2012: A Political Horror Story” – aka the funniest zombie book of all time!)


–Okay, here is the straight scoop on “Jordans Brains: A Zombie Evolution”

I LOVED it!!

Oh, you want more? Okay, not a problem. Without any spoilers, let’s see what I can do.

Jordan lives in the nut-hatch, and has a life-long obsession with Zombies. Sounds like a pretty good recipe so far, right? Oh, it gets even better!

Jordan has run countless Zombie drills in preparation for the Zombie Apocalypse, so when the Zombies make their appearance, Jordan is ready to rock and roll.

Jordan is constantly being forked by the fickle finger of Fate as the Zombie Apocalypse progresses, but with steadfast determination….. Ummm, okay, let me be honest. It isn’t steadfast determination that keeps Jordan going, CRAZINESS is the fuel that fires Jordan’s cylinders!

As more stress is piled onto the already unstable structure of Jordan’s mind, and the truth about the origin of the Zombies is made clear, Jordan begins to lose all semblance of sanity, and we get a deep, dark glimpse of Jordan’s Brains!

I have never read a Zombie tale like this one. It was a roller-coaster ride of fun, fear, and flat-out lunacy. I recommend this book for any ages between twelve and the coffin.

This is NOT your every day tale of shambling corpses. Rated “R” for READ IT RIGHT NOW! (Review by Cedric Nye, author of “The Road to Hell is Paved with Zombies” and “Jango’s Anthem” – two very powerful zombie novels that are a must-read for any zombie fan).


I would like to start this review by saying that I loved this book! And that is important because I watch all things zombie, but I’ve never been the hugest fan of “evolved” zombies- that is, thinkers, weapon handlers or ones who fall in love. My preference is for fast or slow zombies who crave flesh.

That being said, I can’t count the number of times I laughed out loud, found myself relating to people and situations, and was surprised by the twists in Jordan’s Brains. It is definitely not your typical zombie tale! J. Cornell Michel did an outstanding job getting, keeping and holding my interest. I found myself invested in characters and even rooting for “the bad guys.”

Now for the story…

Jordan’s Brains is told in the first person of Jordan, a mental patient, who has been waiting anxiously to play a part in the zombie apocalypse. When it finally comes, Jordan is ready, or at least thinks so, despite the character’s assumptions and “knowledge” of zombies.

Jordan was a really fun, unique character to be in the mind of. I even found myself identifying with Jordan’s selflessness, courage, (and admittedly) Jordan’s twisted sense of humor. For example, Jordan’s mental condition is often times used as an icebreaker or as a joke with complete strangers, who naturally get a little freaked out and withdraw nervously. Then there’s the always-upbeat Jordan who takes everything in stride and is always looking to help others- often times to a fault.

When the story takes off, it doesn’t slow down. Jordan’s east coast journey is filled with hope, devastation, resolve and will to survive and thrive (in more ways than you might think). With each page I learned more about Jordan’s mental state, and to be honest I didn’t know what was real and what might be made up- I had my suspicions, but I won’t say whether I was right or wrong- in any case, kudos to Michel for creating the suspense and uncertainty. These days, it’s not easy to keep an audience guessing, but the way Michel writes and describes situations gives the reader possibilities to choose wether the events are actually happening or are taking place in Jordan’s mind.

The last point I will address is Jordan’s sex. Purposefully, the reader never learns whether Jordan is male or female, but as you will discover for yourself, it doesn’t matter. I say that because in my opinion, it is about Jordan’s personality, ideology, morality and mentality. As Michel points out in the end, it is up to us to decide if Jordan is a man or woman.

To sum it up, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fresh read. Michel, if you’re reading this, I am very impressed by your ability to create scenes, characters and drama. More than a few times I found myself shocked when the story went a completely opposite direction than I anticipated. I think that your “tweak” on the zombie genre is not only fitting and refreshing, but gives a unique and new perspective to it. (Review by A.S. Thompson, author of “The Longest Road” and “The Change” – these two zombie books have everything: action, humor, and a little romance!).
