EVEN WARMER

The most common question people ask me about Warm Bodies is, "When is the sequel?" I've been hearing that question for over two years now, and it's a strange one. Why would people assume I'm writing a sequel? The vast majority of books don't have sequels. Do they figure that because I wrote a book about zombies, I must be a crass commercialist who wants to stretch out his one hit as long as possible? Cash in and milk the teat dry? I thought about all the writers who have influenced me--people like Cormac McCarthy, Douglas Coupland, Kurt Vonnegut, Chuck Palahniuk, Kazuo Ishiguro, David Mitchell, Dave Eggers, Joseph Heller, J.D Salinger, Charlie Kaufman, Jeanette Winterson, Jonathan Lethem, Chris Adrian, Stephen King--and noted that King is the only one who ever wrote a sequel. And even he only did it twice in a 50-book career.

Clearly, there is something uncool about writing sequels. None of the writers whose careers I hope to emulate have done it--in serious literary circles, it just isn't done.

The thing is, I am writing a sequel.

I can see the reactions now: some smiles, some furrowed brows, some eye-rolls. People have urged me not get stuck in a rut, to move on and explore new territory, because as the above-mentioned Jeanette Winterson put it, "Sequels are for when a writer runs out of ideas."

I have not run out of ideas. I have more ideas than I'll ever be able to write, three of which already have their first chapter written. But as much as I'm pawing the ground to dive into those stories, here's why I'm staying in R and Julie's world a little longer: their story isn't finished.

I wrote Warm Bodies having only the faintest hope that it would ever see publication. I never dreamed that I'd have the opportunity to continue the story in another book, so I tried to make it self-contained. But in my head, I still went ahead and created a big, complex world full of history and mystery and people and monsters and strange things in-between, all moving toward something only hinted at in Warm Bodies' brisk 256 pages. Those pages end with hope on the horizon, but the world that R, Julie, M, Nora, Rosso, and Perry inhabit is still very dark, very wild, and not even close to "saved."

I love that world. I love those people, and I want to show you what happens to them. So I'm writing another book about them. Another book-and-a-half, actually...but I'll explain that later. For now, just trust that I have a story to tell and a reason to tell it, and I'll try my best not to ruin everything.

I love you people. Thanks for being alive.

-Isaac

  1. I've never commented on your blog before but I can't wait to read the sequel to Warm Bodies.

    How far are you in the writing process? When might fans be able to look forward to reading this book?

  2. NO EYE ROLLS HERE. PURE EXCITEMENT. MY DAY HAS BEEN MADE.

    A lot of times I dislike sequels, but I've always felt there was room for more in Warm Bodies, so I will first in line for the sequel. :)

  3. Just smiles over here. Thank you, Isaac. Just...thank you. Reading Warm Bodies for the first time was quite possibly the greatest reading experience I've ever had and I can't wait to put some more Sinatra on and crack open the cover of your next great feat.

  8. You are not cashing out.. just like the author of Fahrenheit 451 by Ray bradbury. In one of his interviews he stated that he often would rewrite different endings or change some parts of the plays because he loved these characters as if they were real people to him. Their story wasn't over for him and honestly I think my heart would break if I had to say goodbyes to R right now. it may sound sad but my friend tells me that I have fallen for a zombie lol

  9. I'm kind of mixed about it. I severely loved the Warm Bodies and is much as I want to read a sequel, I like how the book was left open ended. I'll still read it and I trust that you will do an excellent job. Aslong as it doesn't turn into some grand scope, rebels against the empire, I'll be happy. We don't need about Mockingjay on our hands haha.

  10. Some stories need sequels and this is one, I can not wait!!

  11. Joseph Heller did in fact write a sequel: Closing Time, a sequel to Catch-22. That said, I can't be more excited about Warm Bodies sequel! R and Julie are my favorite people ever!!

  12. If any book I have read deserves a sequel...hell sequels ....its Warm Bodies ...its characters are so well done, its like I know them. I want to know more of them. I want them to live on in many more books. You rule. I can't wait to read it.
    THANK YOU ,

  13. I'm really excited about this, and hope you don't stress too much about the implications of writing a sequel. Also, I haven't thoroughly researched it, but with respect to saying Vonnegut didn't write sequels, he may not have continued story lines with them, but he definitely had characters reappear in multiple novels.

    I highly anticipate your future writing, sequels and otherwise!

  14. Thank you.
    I don't say thank you because I'm so very eager to read Warm Bodies - the book stands alone well enough on its own. Let me explain..

    An author is someone who writes book, articles, or reports. Some authors, really great authors, write books, stories, or articles as a job. Its a regular occupation. But the best authors are story-tellers. Have you ever heard of a story-teller who stopped mid-adventure because it seemed like the more professional course of action?

    Thank you for accepting that R and Julie's tale isn't over yet.
    Thank you for being an honorable story-teller.

    Just for heavens sake, please don't name the sequel "Even Warmer."

    3. For the love of God you guys, I'm not calling it EVEN WARMER. That's the title of this blog post, not the book! A little joke about sequels? Die Hard: Die Harder, etc...? Never mind...

  15. Call your sequel "Damp Bodies" and set it in Vancouver, BC.

  16. Warm Bodies was beautiful. I am only looking forward to what more lies ahead for R and Julie...

  17. I always appreciate a good stand-alone story, especially when trilogies seem to be everywhere, so yes, this is scary! That said, Warm Bodies was special enough for me to be inevitably on board and excited for the sequel. DO NOT MESS THIS UP, ISAAC MARION. No pressure. ;)

  18. I have to say, from the moment I finished the book at 4:23 in the morning, since the day I found out about the movie, I knew there was going to be a sequel. The short book & ending left me hanging. I told myself there has to be more to it, them beginning to transform can't be the ending! Well Mr you have made my night!

  19. Support from Catalonia(Spain)! I really like the book!

  20. Thank you all for this little party. Your passion for this story is a big part of why I want to dive back in and finish it. You've all been articulate and insightful about the risks and rewards of going forward, and I just want you to know I value your feedback and your existence. Thank you.

  22. Very excited! The world you created is so obviously filled with story to tell, so it's no surprise you'd wish to finish it. I can't wait to see what you've come up with, and I know for a fact I'll enjoy the writing in general. Your style is very poetic; I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I really enjoyed your very poetic style. I love your use of metaphors and similes for descriptions. You avoid cliches really well and instead incorporate a very refreshing style that is enjoyable to read. It gets a little cheesy and flowery at times, but there are definitely some killer lines in there like "I want to change my punctuation. I long for exclamation marks, but I'm drowning in ellipses." They're simple yet incredibly poignant (although maybe a little too poignant at times). Plus, given that you're combining zombies and romance, some cheese is expected. I also absolutely love the humor and wish there could be a bit more of it. Not too much, since I know the novel has a serious tone to uphold, but R is adorable in that awkward way only a zombie can be. Overall, if I had to sum up your writing style in one word, it'd be "refreshing."

    Gotta love those existential elements, too. Although, at times, I have to say that a little more action wouldn't have hurt, but neither is it too missed. I personally wished the philosophy discussion could have been toned down just a bit and instead of telling the reader, it could have been shown to the reader. That way, I could've really FELT what R was feeling and experiencing and relate to him instead of him telling me. Most of the cheesy moments were when Julie or Perry (but mostly Julie) was saying very deep, meaningful things that seemed a little TOO deep, if that makes sense. I just don't see most people saying those kinds of things. There were other moments that seemed rather like reader-feeder. Trust your readers; we're smarter than you think. ;)

    The pace of the novel from the beginning is great--slow but steady. However, for that kind of pace, I was expecting a longer novel. Towards the end, I felt the pace quicken towards the climax (which is good), but it also felt rather rushed and erratic like meeting a deadline only seconds before and needing to get through all the material.

    I am typically not fond of sequels. They rarely surpass the first book. However, I'm glad that you are planning on a sequel because I think Warm Bodies really needs one. Towards the end, I felt like there were a lot of plotholes that were left hanging, and the explanation for the zombie curse likewise felt rushed and like a cop-out. I just wasn't satisfied. I wish that R's transformation could have been emphasized and explained a little more. Also, the fact that all the other zombies were changing because of R and Julie just wasn't altogether believable to me. That seemed like stretching it a bit far. Thus, given the pacing of the book and the holes that were never quite filled all the way, I think Warm Bodies not only deserves but NEEDS a sequel.

  24. Very well said Isaac. I'm so glad the rest of this story will be told and you're bold & brave enough to go for it in spite of some other 'social norms'/etc.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm glad that you're making a sequel because there's so much to R's character that I want to learn about. Like his transformation and I want to learn more about his life before becoming a zombie. I wonder if he'll get his memories of his past life triggered or if he'll figure out his real name. There's something about the mystery of R's character that really intrigues me.

  26. Quite honestly, this is the best news on the book front that I have heard in a year. Please, take my money.

  27. I really liked the insightfulness of Warm Bodies and am actually basing my bachelors project on it, and on McCarthy's the Road.
    Very happy to hear that Warm Bodies sequel will contain more fascinating ideas.

  28. I'm so excited that you're going to continue the story!!! Honestly, to me the story didn't seem finished at the end of the book. It seemed as if there was something more you were hinting at in the future. That's why I was shocked when I found out you had no intention of working on a second book up until now.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Very excited to read your future works. I just recently finished reading 'Warm Bodies' and thought it was a great read. Now I am anxiously waiting for a sequel (even though it could possibly take years to write, I will be a good, devoted fan and try to wait patiently.) Anyways, I look forward to reading more of your stories :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Isaac you made my day today.

    Warm Bodies is fine without a sequel, but that's not the point. When I finished reading it, the first question that popped into my head was : What's going to happen next? Naturally, people who get deeply attached to a novel ask for more. Besides things like what's going to happen next and revealing of R's past, I'd really like to know M's as well.

    And "Even Warmer" is a nice title. Anybody who says otherwise is a complete twit, even if it's going to be you.

    By the way, I'm buying the book today. I read it in an .epub I found on the Internet. I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings.

  31. Hahaha--guys! The title is NOT going to be WARM BODIES 2: EVEN WARMER. Come on, give me some credit here. :-)

  33. Bought the book this morning at 4. Read it through all my classes and just finished haha. My sister told me to look up on youtube the trailer for the movie. After I saw it I thought, "this HAS to have been a book. Its too AWESOME a story!! " immediately following I found it on my kindle, bought it right away, read it, finished it, and when I did I thought, "what?! This CAN 'T be the end!!! " so I found this link and had to tell you I 'm so stoked! Thanks for creating such an inspiring place and inspiring people. I am so jealous of Julie right now because I'd absolutely love to have an R in my life. Again, thank you so much Mr. Marion. You have made a huge fan out of me.

  34. I'm reading your book right now and it's amazing! I'm the kind of girl that almost never reads a book for fun. For once in my life, I couldn't wait to go home from school just to read your book! Mr.Marion, please keep on writing because you've also made a huge fan out of me...and I haven't even finished the book yet!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I swear if you cheapen the original with this second book. I will hunt you down, and you won't like what I'll do to you. If you George Lucas this thing, very very crossed fan. Any who best of Luck ! :).

    ReplyDelete
  36. I just got Warm Bodies yesterday and am already halfway through even though I have two papers to write, to presentations to make, and a preliminary project to complete =/ I can't stop reading it. I'm excited about the story being continued.

    I'm not sure what you mean about sequels not being a good thing, though, because some of the best stories that I've loved intensely have involved sequels or were a series - Harry Potter, Parade's End, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Wizard of Oz stories, Pullman's His Dark Materials Trilogy, Mishima's Sea of Fertility series, Sherlock Holmes, etc.. There are so many examples I can think of, stories that spanned several novels that have been loved and cherished for a great deal of time. Sequels or series aren't for people who've run out of ideas, they're just a product of an epic story that can't feasibly be put into a single novel. Stories should be told until they're finished.

    I think it's awesome that you'll write whatever you like. Always do what you want and do it for yourself - that's the best any artist can do. 'Haters gonna hate.'

  37. Warm Bodies was a fun read, the ending has left me hungry for more of R and Julie's world, for someone like me who hasn't dabbled into zombie stories before, it sparked a huge interest in me, a sequel is certainly a lot to look forward to!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Awesome!!! Thank you for existing! I love warm bodies its my favorite book and youre my favorite author!!

  39. i can't wait either i haven't read the book yet but when i went to go see breaking dawn p2 i saw the trailer and that was the bestest part of the whole movie lol and i will read the book and then pray the next one comes soon lol

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'm a sap and even as a guy I'm willing to say the romance between R and Julie was beautiful and such a strong element in the book. I can't see why it wouldn't be but, I hope you explore plenty of their relationship going forward as they try to clean up their world. If I really enjoy a book or movie, like I did Warm Bodies, then I love sequels. You've created such great characters and environment that I personally would want multiple sequels of Warm Bodies. I'm sure there are people who feel the exact opposite, but for me when great characters like R and Julie come along I want to here about their stories as much as possible. Thanks, for listening. I'm all in on Warm Bodies and on your writing. Much appreciated.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Creating a sequel is not about moneymaking. People like me actually get involved in the plotline and the impossible romance of it all. Sequels are all about letting people live in that world a little longer, and teaching them how to live in the real one.

  42. Hi I randomly found the trailer for the movie Warm Bodies on youtube and I started getting thrilled about it, I can't wait to watch it in january. Then I read that it was based on a novel and I looked for it and finished it in a few hours. I really loved it and lately I don't seem to find books that are both entertaining and introspective so I am really impressed. From what I saw in the trailer I was expecting some kind of teen horror commedy, which isn't bad itself but I was totally wrong.Maybe the movie will be like that but the book is dark and existensial, it has its own soul pulsating and filled with pain and hope. It reminded me of Salinger and Joyce. The story is very original and beyond the surface of the contingence of a post apocalyptic world where zombies and humans fight each other I think the main theme is the solitude everyone experiences and the research for a truth, for something that matters and that can answer the primordial and inner questions we all have: who am I? why am I here? what's the meaning of life? and I think the answer is love. this book is a hymn to love and its power of changing people. I also liked the latin references :) I can't wait to read the sequel. Thank you Isaac Marion for giving the world such an amazing artwork.

    ReplyDelete
  43. YAY!! I'm currently reading Warm Bodies and I must admit, I skipped to the end to make sure that R didn't "die." (I'm laughing as I post that). As I keep reading, I keep wanting MORE from these two characters. The closer I get to the end, I keep hoping my Kindle will stop letting me know that I'm 75% finished because I want MORE. I guess you've awakend my own hunger, because a sequel sounds just about right. Can't wait to see what else you have floating around your brain. Yummm, brains. ;)

  44. Looking forward to a sequel. But I wouldn't mind reading a prequel to WARM BODIES. I'm a fan of the Nora Greene character. So it would be cool to get to know how she managed to survive after her parents abandoned her.

    1. Are you messing with me? Do you know I wrote that exact story as a novella included in my short story collection, which might become a standalone book soon?

    2. YAY! Can't wait to read it. Nora Greene is my favorite character in WARM BODIES (after R and Julie, of course).

      I hope there will be also a story about the Boney that attacks Grigio near the end of the novel. Will we get to know more about the past life of him/her? I'm just curious.

      Best wishes from Germany!

  45. Oh I am SO excited for this!! You just made my day :D I believe in you, I know you can write a sequel that dose Warm Bodies justice!

  46. And what about Julie's mom? Was she the Boney that came after Grigio? I always kept wondering if she was out there somewhere waiting to come back for her family.

  47. i sort of live in a bubble... but i did manage to get out not that long ago to go to the movies. i walked into the theater in the middle of the preview for Warm Bodies.. I read the book but didn't know it was made into a movie. i recognized it for what it was immediately! Loved the book!! i'm excited it's a movie and i'm even more thrilled about a sequel. I'll b sure to catch both! Thanks again!

  48. I read Warm Bodies twice. I would really like to read more from Isaac Marion no matter what the subject. I'm very excited about the possibilities.

  49. Happy dance begins!
    I actually read a friend's copy of Warm Bodies, in a fit of boredom I was desperate to alleviate. What I found blew me out of the water, and I was sucked into R's undead - but very alive - world. I came out of the ensuing fever dream of awesome a few hours later.
    With the movie coming in February, and now a sequel, I think I'll go find my own copy of the book.
    YESSSS!!!!!!!!'

  51. I LOVED your novel! I read it in three nights and was upset with myself when I was too exhausted to continue reading and actually fell asleep with the book in my embrace one night! I love all the characters and the poetic tone of R's thoughts! Amazing! I'm most likely getting the passage where he talks about all the amazing things he can express in his mind, but comes out broken when he speaks on a custom made scarf I am ordering.
    Anyways, I hope there is a sequel and possibly even more because I am not done with R and Julie's world either! I'd love to see if there are any side-effects that come with becoming Living again after being Dead (speaks slower than average Living? sleeps shorter periods of time? unable to reproduce? certain foods still taste like nothing? all foods still taste like nothing?).
    So excited to see the movie and even more excited for a sequel! Thank you again for writing this wonderful story!

I admire youre work again Thank you

  56. I wanted to say, I read Warm Bodies because the movie is coming out and it seems an interesting story line. I was expecting a cliche' another supernatural live story and was so pleasantly surprised by the way you wrote it u read the entire book in 2 days (with little ones that's an accomplishment)! I am very excited to read the next book. I refuse to say sequel as it seems cheapened that way :)

  58. Im all hands down for a sequel! i finished the book and saw the movie and i have to say, i loved it from the beginning to the end. You did such a great job Isaac, and i cannot wait to see more with this story...i did talk to you before and you answered to one of my questions on formspring, saying that there would be no sequel but i'm glad you changed your mind about it, this book and movie remind me so much of twilight...i know i know! people are going to kill me for saying that haha but when i was watching the movie it reminded me of twilight so because of the music playing in the movie and also because its a zombie romance so it reminds me of bella and edwards love im not saying its the same. I was eagerly searching for something new to watch every year now that twilight series is done and harry potter. I do hope this becomes more than just one i love superntural romance..keep it coming isaac your an amazing!!!!!! author even if the sequel turns out to be a prequel like you said i do hope to read some new supernatural books im looking forward to anything new...Thank you for this wonderful book Mr. Marion (:

  59. Please dont let anyone dissuade you from writing a sequel. I personally was salivating for for info on how R and Julie transition into the newly "fixed" world. How does he adapt to being human again? There are way too many questions!!! Please hurry up and write the sequel : ).

  64. R & Julie, remind me so much of the Romeo & Juliet story. The total opposite, and differ in ways, but some how a kismet connection. I read the book, which was a great read, then went to see the movie, and just like the book, I felt there is so much more to tell. I want to know more of their future, what will hold, will this be the actual hope? I am very curious of how it all started, im also curious as to R's character. Who is he? What is his story? It leaves me wondering, who is R? I loved this story, and trust me im not rolling my eyes to the thought of a sequel. I've never been a fan of them, like the Twilight Saga, now that is a sequel, is just dragged on and on. This book can use another part. I loved it very much, and I think im going to read it again. Thank you for making a story that I can read over and over and not get bored with it!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Wow, I'm absolutely so excited over this!

    To be honest, I didn't read Warm Bodies until the movie, but the book was so much better! I am now in love(obsessed) with the book and have read it twice in two weeks. Then I discovered The New Hunger hoping it would hold some of my answers, but I want to know the future of this situation! Both Warm Bodies and The New Hunger were incredible and I can't wait until the next one is released! I'm also hoping there will be a movie to follow!

  66. Being someone who loves writing and would definitely consider being a writer someday, I can see where you're coming from; the idea of having so many ideas and wanting to continue them is so appealing. Personally, I would love to hear more about M, and about whether or not R remembers his past. And I'd liked to see just how intimate the zombies and humans can get. And the return of bonies, I'd like to see them... well, I don't know. But you're the author, and I'm excited to read what you have to say.

  67. i choose to watch the film version before reading the book cause the book always contains alot more to it and there are bound to be diffrerences but loved them both. i just finished reading the book today and thought the book was just brilliant and cant wait to continue reading about your characters and the world u created in the sequel

    ReplyDelete
  68. I just wanted to say that how u make R so funny yet you let us inside his head and the world her lives in is amazing. I just hope u keep writing the world needs more writers like u we need more people like R and movie was ok the book 10 times better!

  70. I have no doubts by thinking it will be a great story. R. and have found each other again, and as much I was waiting for that, I am now waiting for a sequel to be published. I'm from The Netherlands, and here, the people who do have read it, love the story also. I just have watched the movie, which is pretty good, too. I wish you lots of time and inspiration to write more!

  71. Loved warm bodies so im utterly elated to here that the stroy continues for R and the gang.Also apologies in advance so the many spelling mistakes im am proberly about to create, im both lazy and dsylexic so not the best combo for spelling. Sadly, unlike some of the comments above im not going to say anything profound, poeic or even midly intelligent. Simply that im very very exicted to here of the sequel and that your writing has inspired me to attempt my own novel, using somthing with very good spell check... Now im going to spread the news to my cluster of warm bodies fans friends so we can have a sad little rave... :D

  74. I have to agree that while the movie was very good, the book was 100 times better. Loved the richness of the world and characters.

  77. I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE SECOND BOOK!!! What I'm wondering, though, is how they'll make a second movie, considering the way that the first ended.
