Price: $.99
Genres:
Urban Fantasy, Zombies Survival, Zombies Book, Paranormal Dystopian, Zombies Apocalypse

About the Book:

A letter found on the clear glass case of the only gun shop in Pleasant, LA

Hello,

My name is Tabitha Alexander. Congratulations. If you're reading this letter, you're one of the survivors from the zombie apocalypse. Take care, or you won't last for long.
I'm 18, and I just graduated this year. I didn't get to enjoy it, though. I was working at the grocery store as a checkout girl, when the first zombie slammed into the clear glass. I'll never forget the fear that washed over me at the sight of his red, hungry eyes. That night marked the loss of my innocence.... And my freedom.
Now, my life is something different. No longer can we take the basic things for granted, not to mention our lives. The zombies destroyed our entire town that first night, including the family of the college guy I had a crush on. We were able to save him, but he's not the same. He's different, but so am I.
Our numbers are extremely small, but the humans have united. A new group of survivors is emerging in this nightmarish world.... And we aren't afraid to fight dirty, if it ensures our survival.
We had to leave Pleasant in order to save our lives. We barely made it out alive. These zombies are entirely different than the ones from television. They are fast, preternaturally strong, and even aware. They used that awareness to discover our small group of survivors. Without Kellan, we'd be dead right now, wandering the streets of Pleasant.
Kellan is something completely different than any man I've ever seen before. He's too powerful and too controlled to ever be anything like the average male. I can't explain him, but I'm glad he's on our side. Heaven help us all, if he ever decides we're not worth the effort.
He's taken us to his home outside of town, if the massive fortress can be considered that. It's large enough for many more than us, self-sustaining should we be forced to remain behind the high fence. There's something strange about the way he was so prepared for the zombie apocalypse, but it's not my place to question it. I've learned that Kellan doesn't enjoy questions, and he doesn't want anybody getting too close.
I'm leaving a handwritten map here in the hopes that there is still someone alive in this town to find it. God, I hope you are. It feels like we're the only ones left, and it's horrifying...

Zombies/Paranormal Romance Feature - Apocalipstick Book Tour


Virtual Book Tour Dates: 11/19/13 – 12/17/13

Genres: Horror, Paranormal Romance, Urban Fiction


Blurb:

Jenna should be having the time of her life at college. Instead, her only desire is survival. She lives in a world gone insane after a virus kills most of the population. Being alive after the apocalypse is bad, but when the undead return, hungry for humans, times turn darker. For Jenna and a small group of survivors, the goal is to reach the High Point Inn. At the inn, Jenna develops feelings for Caleb, who, while exotic and intoxicating, is not quite human. Will this new utopia last?

Excerpt:

“By the pricking of my thumbs, Something wicked this way comes…” ran through Jenna’s mind, another remnant of her former life. Now the graveyard was the safest place. Evil openly roamed the streets and it was coming for her.

Jenna blinked the sweat out of her eyes and took a deep breath. She swayed with exhaustion. Angels, symbols of all things God and good, adornments of the dead, swam in and out of Jenna’s clouded vision. She placed a scarred hand on the peaceful, cold stone markers, embellished with the names of forgotten loved ones. Nowadays, loved ones wanted to come back from the grave and claw your face off, devour your insides.

Jenna wanted to lie down and give up. She was tired and had lost everyone she knew. Hair lank and greasy, mud splattered clothing, old and mismatched. Instead of admitting defeat, she forced herself to stay alert, pushing matted, raven hair out of her eyes with a dirty hand. Jenna could not remember a time in her recent history where she felt clean or had a moment in which she was not fighting to stay alive. Looking around the darkened landscape, she wanted to live. She shoved to her feet once again.

Deviltry Afoot by Carol Pritt: Paranormal Book Tour and Giveaway


Genres: Paranormal, Occult

Blurb: Seeking justice for her daughters murder Tina must seek answers in the supernatural realm. Terror is spreading over Pendale. Love is pitted against a dreadful force. 

Excerpt:
Deep into an uneasy dream Tina’s face was twisted in consternation.
Dan hadn’t stayed over this evening. She’d told him she needed time to gather strength and come to grips with what lay ahead.
He’d looked hurt. She knew he could not understand her need to be alone at such a time.
He offered to sit up with her all night.
She told him she was wrung out; she would be able to sleep a bit.
She longed to fall into unconsciousness and to block all thought.
Her bedroom felt airless.
The little clock on her nightstand seemed to have a very loud tick tonight. The dials revealed it to be 1:00 pm.
Still asleep Tina shifted her weight to lie on her back.
Her heavy cotton nightgown became bunched up under the small of her back.
Suddenly she brought up her hands folding them over her chest in the position that the dead are laid out.
Beads of sweat broke out on her face, although the temperature in her room was a cool sixty-four degrees.
She was carrying groceries to her car in a dark parking lot.
Behind her there was a small convenience store. It was lit up. The buildings light stopped at the front of the building.
Tina tossed her bag of groceries into the passenger side of the seat. Just as she lifted her leg to get in behind the wheel she thought of her mother. She’d yell up a storm if she could see her now. As a teen Tina was lectured countless times about getting into a car alone. First check out the back seat to make sure no one was lurking there, she could still her mom stress.
Tina sat her leg back down on the pavement. She opened the back door. All clear.
She slid into the front seat closing her door and rolling down her window most of the way.
Glancing out her open window she began to shake all over.
Two hands with long tapered fingers suddenly grasp the window!
As if in slow motion a hooded figure raised itself!
Her door was flung open wide.
It pushed her backward sending her sprawling across the seat.
She was immobile from fear.
The thing lowered itself to her feet.
It covered her with its form inch by inch.
Its dark cloak was spread wide to enfold her completely.
Her heart thumped so hard she felt ready to pass out praying she would.
It was up to her head now.
Tina was so cold it was as if she were entombed within a block of ice
The smell of decay surrounding her was so rank she couldn’t catch a good breath.
The hood slipped back a bit. She couldn’t decipher its features clearly. She could only make out black pinpoint eyes.
Drool oozed from its mouth. A great gob of spittle plunked down on her forehead.
She let out a scream.
She thought she’d cried out, and awoken.
It was actually only phase two.
Still dreaming she thanked the Lord that it was only a nightmare.
Lights flickered from the traffic through her drapes.
Something in the room didn’t feel right.
The sheet was shifting downward of its own accord.
Two hands grasp the foot of the bed as a cloaked figure crawled up and over her!
She surrendered herself up to it.
She was entirely passive until sirens from a passing rescue unit brought her to an actual waking state ending her ordeal.
Rest would elude her the remainder of the night. She sighed and got up from the bed.
First light would signal the start of her greatest trial.
She must commend her only offspring to eternal rest.

I Dream of Zombies by Charlotte Gerber - Book Spotlight and Giveaway


Genres: Mystery/Zombies

Blurb:
Being a zombie counselor was not Rose Lee’s dream job. However, there was a growing need for people who were willing to work with clients that smelled bad, were falling apart, and had a propensity for bad behavior. She decided to put her college degree to work, and try to help out her fellow man, or rather fellow zombies.
When Rose meets a soon-to-be zombie waitress at the Crispy Biscuit, things go from bad to worse. She has run-ins with zombie landlords, zombie hunters, undercover zombies and mercenaries, just to name a few.
Rose tackles all of her problems straight on, whether she is taking out a thug in the supermarket parking lot or saving a cop’s life at the playground. She battles the dark underbelly of post-apocalypse Hornellsville, and proves that she is more than just a pretty girl named after a famous stripper.

Excerpt:
Welcome to the Crispy Biscuit,” a nasal female voice said over the intercom. “Can I interest you in a Deluxe Chicken and Cheese breakfast biscuit?”
No, thanks. Give me a brown sugar biscuit with marmalade and a large Lava Java with two creams and two sugars please,” I said.
Does that complete your order?” the voice asked.
Yep, that’ll do it,” I said.
Please pull ahead to the first window,” she said.
I did as instructed and rounded the corner with my 1990 Cadillac Brougham. It was a gift from my father. I’m not sure if it was really a gift, or rather his way of getting rid of the biggest, gas-guzzling vehicle he’d ever owned. I had named the car Beulah.
I maneuvered up to the window, being careful not to hit the concrete pylon next to the service window. Not because it would hurt my car, but rather because the car would probably take a chunk out of the pylon.
Eight feet of car hood later, the driver’s side window finally lined up with the service window. “Five-o-five please,” the cashier said. I handed her the money and was a little shocked when she almost dumped my order into my lap through the window. “Sorry”, she said, her cheeks turning a deep shade of scarlet.
That’s okay, it is that kind of day,” I said, trying to reassure her with a smile. It never hurt to be nice to the workers at the Crispy Biscuit. Every once in a while they gave me an extra biscuit, and who was I to complain?
I noticed her hands as she went back to work. I could have sworn there were the familiar quarter-sized brown patches on the tops of her hands. I must have looked a little too long because the girl suddenly pulled the window shut, shot me the stink eye, and turned her back to me.
It didn’t take a rocket scientist to know what those patches were – zombie disease. If that were true, all it would take to do the poor creature in was a whiff of pepper and BAM! A very sticky, and somewhat messy, end.
I was torn between pulling into a parking space and running in to alert her manager or continuing on my drive to the jail. I didn’t relish the thought of doing either; in one case the poor girl may be sent away to live out her life in a zombie asylum, and in the other, I had to figure out whether my client was worth the time and effort of sitting through a court hearing.
Life used to be so much easier before the ZA.
A sense of duty won out, since I’m required by law to report this kind of thing. I pulled Beulah into a tight parking space and disembarked. Luckily I had worn one of my sensible suits to work today and didn’t have to navigate the pot-hole filled parking lot in high heels.
I entered the restaurant and stood in line, waiting for my chance to speak with the manager. The hostess greeted me after a few moments.
Just one today?” she asked.
No, I’m not staying,” I said. “I just have a quick question for the manager. Is he or she in?”
Let me check, hon. I’ll be right back,” she said.
I watched her walk away from me, her plump body crammed into a short yellow dress. A starched white apron hemmed with lace helped to cover some of the bulges in front, but from behind it didn’t help her at all. I gave a sigh and felt instantly sorry for her. She probably didn’t make much money, and the management was probably a little too cheap to buy uniforms that fit everyone, especially the more curvy girls.
She returned a few minutes later with a rather unhappy-looking man with a bad comb over. I could feel my stomach clench looking at him. I didn’t like dealing with surly people, especially this early in the morning.
What can I do for you mam?” he asked in a weak, raspy voice, probably a result from chain smoking. I had a hard time looking away from him. His skin had an odd, oily appearance and he had purple circles under his eyes. His lips had a bluish cast to them; a candidate for a heart attack if I ever did see one.
Um,” I stammered. “I think one of your waitresses may be sick.”
He narrowed his eyes and stared at me. “Who is sick?” he asked, a little more loudly than was necessary.
I think the girl who waited on me at the drive thru is a little under the weather, if you know what I mean,” I said. I would have given the proverbial wink-wink to him, but I was afraid that he would misunderstand the signal.
No, I don’t know what you mean,” he said curtly. “Explain,” he said, even more loudly than before.
I was beginning to feel uncomfortable and regretting my decision to come into the restaurant. There was no turning back now, however, so I plowed ahead.
I noticed that your waitress has brown spots on the tops of her hands. I don’t need to tell you what that is a sign of, do I? The last thing you need is a horrific accident in your restaurant, right? You know what happens when a zombie gets around pepper.”
The situation was beginning to sink in with the manager, and he looked at the floor. He nodded and then said, “I’ll look into it.” He abruptly turned on his heel and walked away from me. I turned and was about to leave the store when I saw my car pulling out of the parking space without me.
I ran towards the front door of the store, and just then the waitress from the drive thru turned and gave a little wave from the driver’s side of my car. “Holy cheese and crackers!” I yelled. “She stole my car!”
Other patrons who were enjoying their breakfast biscuits stopped eating and looked up at me. “She stole my car!” I yelled again, pointing at the door.
I turned and looked at the restaurant patrons around me, half wondering if anyone was going to help me. Most of them just went back to eating, though a few looked at me expectantly for a moment or two before they also returned to their breakfasts.
If nothing else, people in Hornellsville were a calm lot.
