Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has been an unqualified hit. It has made the publisher, Quirk Books, one of the most successful independent publishers of last year. Danielle Johnson, who is the publicist at Raincoast Books, did a fun blog on how she put together the press kits for the prequel Dawn of the Dreadfuls. Lots of imagination and blood abound! As a Colin Firth fan I find the whole phenomenon a bit sacrilegious; apparently millions disagree with me.
The prequel will be out March 23, 2010.
