Douglas & McIntyre is pleased to announce that All-Day Breakfast is shortlisted for the 2016 ReLit Award in the novel category.

Melding humour, horror and lots of zombie action, All-Day Breakfast is an irreverent romp featuring a substitute-teacher-turned-zombie who is desperate to find a cure for his “undead” condition. Zombies and our fascination with the undead find a new outlet in Schroeder’s novel – in this instance the zombies aren’t mindless brain-eating walking dead. They are parents, they are conflicted, they crave bacon and mayhem in equal measure, and above all they spend a fair bit of time pondering the nature of their zombiness, while desperately searching for a cure (all the while dealing with the fall-out of being a zombie, no small part being the unreliable and tenuous nature of the attachment of their limbs!).

Canadian writer Adam Lewis Schroeder lives in Penticton, British Columbia, with his wife and two sons, and practices drums for hours at a time. He is co-secretary of his sons’ school’s parent advisory council so if you smack talk him you may regret it. Adam earned a master’s degree from the University of British Columbia and teaches Creative Writing at UBC Okanagan. He is the author of In the Fabled East (Amazon.ca Best Books of the Year), Empress of Asia and Kingdom of Monkeys: Stories, each a finalist for national or international fiction awards (Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for Best Book). His latest novel with Douglas & McIntyre, All-Day Breakfast, is his first and best foray into the world of zombies.

The ReLit Awards were founded in 2000 by Newfoundland filmmaker and author Kenneth J. Harvey and are awarded annually in three categories: novel, poetry, short-fiction. The ReLit Awards are one of the pre-eminent literary prizes in independent Canadian publishing.
