The zombie apocalypse is nigh

We at Xavier Nagel Agencies are very proud to announce that we are fully prepared for the zombie apocalypse! We are not only reading the amazing self help books penned by Lee Herrmann, but we are also distributing them and thus ensuring that as many people as possible know what to do and who to eat.


Zombie Journal

If you need to know what to do while stuck watching your friends prepare the afternoon braai without meat in sight, or if you want to know if Zombie green is in this season or you’re wondering if you still need to wait 12 hours at Home Affairs for your unabridged birth certificate (when you are technically dead), then The South African zombie apocalypse survival guide is a must read.






Self Help

Journal of a South African zombie apocalypse is an intriguing journal written by a sixteen year old which is recovered five years after the apocalypse. A father and his two sons leave the comfort of their home in Pretoria seeking sanctuary away from raiders, religious zealots and zombies. They travel across the country towards Robben Island and in their quest they befriend fellow survivors who encourage them to face this brave new apocalyptic world. Will this family survive against the largest battle known to man….a fight against the walking dead?






Let’s not forget Zombie ZA which is an essential guide on how to act undead in South Africa. This book is filled with tips on how to appear normal; which includes how to avoid having to eat cooked food, how to brush off odd questions and provides support to those eagerly waiting for the apocalypse. This guide helps you to gently break the news to your family and is crucial to your suburban survival.
