I've always had trouble with summaries. When Dead Men Bleed was a weird one I could never figure out...
“Fate has a way of changing yer plans, mate.”
I never asked fate to change me into a Bleeder. Zombism is all I knew, but now I’ll be hunted until they can find a way to kill me. If I hadn’t had gone down to that hum-fight, if I didn’t jump in the ring to satisfy my need for unprocessed human flesh, I'd still be accepted in society. I wouldn’t have to hide from the werewolves who can smell life on me, from the vampires who, with one drop of blood, know everything about me. Now here I am, with a gaggle of humans and human-sympathizers, trying to hide my new identity, all while trying my hardest to avoid learning about the girl who turned me.
But it’s near impossible when she’s the only one I trust.
When Dead Men Bleed is available for FREE on Kindle Unlimited. It also is available as a paperback and hardcover, AND has two special editions: the Whiteout and Limited Edition Covers/formatting. Sound interesting? Visit the links below.

Don’t know what When Dead Men Bleed is about? Here’s the summary below:
Zeke the zombie has anger issues. Problem number two? Zombies are too fragile to fight.
Mythical creatures once lived behind an invisible barrier, terrified of humans. The barrier shattered, the surge of energy making the dead rise.
The human population was depleted from the apocalypse, allowing the second worlders to fight for control of the world.
Then the Bleeders rose.
Humans are dangerous.
Bleeders are worse.
Zeke is somewhere he shouldn't be: a hole-in-the-wall place to see illegal human fighting. He jumps in the ring in hopes of eating fresh, unprocessed human meat for the first time.
His prey reaches up and scratches him before disappearing into the crowd, a crackle of change in the air as it brings problem number three into light: zombies don't bleed.
So why is there blood running from his cheek?
WDMB2, Wattys, and Other Updates
Wattys & Waterlogged
My books didn’t get shortlisted for the Wattys, but that’s okay! That means I can go ahead and start getting Waterlogged ready to publish. I will be publishing the parts separately at first, so watch out for that announcement sometime next year.
Also, Waterlogged, Through the Dimension of Nightmares, and When the Sky Eats have been taken down from Wattpad. You can read them on Radish, or, if you’d rather, you can find them on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and your favorite bookish places.
Dead Men Trilogy Book 2
October 1st was When Dead Men Bleed’s 1-year birthday! I finished it late 2020 and had the second and most of the third book plotted out. However, between a move and the days between today, the spiral I’d had has vanished. I’m still looking, but as of right now, I still have not found it.
That being said, spooky season had me inspired. I’ve been real quiet this past year with my many projects, but I think I needed a bit of a break. But yesterday, I started jotting down plot points and things I wanted to happen in WDMB2. I’ve had seven chapters written for a little over a year now, and today, I’ve begun adding to it.
I can’t wait to see where this series will take me, especially since I remember almost nothing about what I’d wanted before. All I know is this version is already better.
I’m still working on Go. I was supposed to finish it forever ago, but I’ve hit a wall. That being said, I started writing it from a different angle, so that has helped a lot. I know where I want it to go, but I’m not sure where to end it anymore. But it'll come to me, and one day, you’ll get to finally read Stop’s sequel.
I went through Peridot and added a few more endings. I just didn’t feel right about it, like it was missing something. But NOW it is completely finished and I’m ready to edit and publish it. It reached over 100k (the size of The One-Hundred), making it the longest Replay Book in the series. It has 21 different endings. Will you be able to find the good ones?
I will have a cover reveal for Peridot soon, so watch out for that! The ebook is also available to purchase for ARC’s if you like reading raw, unedited books. Just head over to my shop to purchase it.
I plan on releasing Peridot on December 31, 2022, so mark your calendars! If you haven’t read the books yet, you can get them all at my shop.
Replay should have 5 more books after Peridot, and then it’ll be finished. One book for each character.
Get ready for a wild ride.
If you’ve been on my Smashwords profile lately, you’ll notice a new series has popped up: Underdogs.
I’ve been sitting on these books for two years, and plan to release them next year. I wanted to wait until Replay is finished, but I’m too excited for Underdogs. I’m 1/3 of the way through writing the 4th book, so wish me luck.
The release dates are tentative, so they are subject to change.
Thank you so much for reading, and please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Have a wonderful rest of your day!
Something looks different!
You’re right! Thank you for noticing. I have a few announcements to get through, so bear with me!
First thing’s first: When Dead Men Bleed is on Tales.
Click here to check it out!
Tales is an awesome interactive storytelling platform, and the people there are so nice and helpful. They put WDMB together and it looks SO AMAZING.
When Dead Men Bleed is a book I poured so much into. I have so much planned for the next books, and I’m so excited to share it with you guys. Seeing these characters come to life is an amazing feeling. I can’t get over Zeke and Mikey’s art. It’s stunning.
The team was super responsive and listened to everything I told them, and they really brought these creations to life. I will say my favorite character art is by far Etem’s. My goodness, he looks awesome! I have stuff planned for him, too, along with Cayla and Raquel. Everyone’s art is so amazing, especially Zeke and Mikey’s. They’re perfect. Exactly how I pictured them.
The Tales team is currently working on two of my other books, so I guess y’all will see those when I announce them!
Make sure you check out Tales and all their amazing stories.

It’s a monumental time for WDMB! I will be selling 25 copies of When Dead Men Bleed that includes the dust jacket below. They also have their own set of book boxes! But they are available by themselves if you don’t want the book box.
The Limited Edition also includes some artwork on the inside, and it’s all in color. It’s gorgeous, and features art by Reign Cattoni.
Tales isn’t the only thing that’s happening to WDMB.
I made a limited edition dust jacket! If you get the limited edition paperback or hardcover from my store, you get the dust jacket FREE! It includes artwork on the flip side of Zeke nurturing Mikey back to health.
They’re finally here! Check out what’s in them below!
They also have free US shipping, so yay for that! That reduced the price of the boxes by at least $15! I also wanted to add more stuff to the boxes, and I totally achieved that, now that I’m aware of how to do these boxes.
You can also add stuff to the box without upgrading completely to the next step. Want a standee? Add it to the box for a small fee. Want a poster? Add it too!
Limited Edition Boxes
These are just like the others, only there’s 25 available in TOTAL! 25 hardcovers and 25 paperbacks. These limited edition books are in color and feature some of the art inside.
These boxes automatically include a dust jacket cover. In it’s place, you get a poster of Zeke nursing Mikey back to health.
That’s all for now!
if you’re interested in reading WDMB free in exchange for a review, message me over on Instagram (kweikelofficial)! Or if you’d like to be a part of my Advanced Readers Army and get exclusive deals on book boxes and whatnot, let me know. I’d be happy to add you!
Thanks so much for reading and all your support. I hope you have a wonderful day!
