Thank you for stopping by my site! So glad to have you here, kicking off the first day of Zombie Crawl 2! If you don't know already, my Shattered Lives series is post apocalypse with a paranormal twist. Currently, the first three books in the series are available on Kindle and Kindle Unlimited.
On December 15th, 2015, I will be publishing book four, Blind Faith, and a supplemental short story for book one, A Little Taste of Naughty, which was originally published in the best-selling anthology Just Desserts.
Broken Dreams starts off the series, giving you a little background on the male protagonist, Henry Daniels. It fast forwards to his and Elaina's wedding day, which is when the apocalypse breaks out. The story is about their journey and survival through all of Henry's lies, deceit, sickness and betrayal. Fair warning: Buckle up, it's going to be a bumpy ride.
Here's a little zombie excerpt for your reading pleasure:
Henry pressed his ear up to the door. He looked over to Sophie and shook his head. She tapped Nick on the shoulder and leaned into his ear. “Take over rear cover.” She walked up to Henry and he mouthed, Undeads. My breath caught in my throat, and I felt as if I would choke.
He turned to us and quietly said, “Everyone back up a couple steps. I’m going to knock first, just in case. When we get the door open, be ready.” We all nodded.
We stepped back and I swallowed hard, trying to keep my stomach in its proper place. I looked back at Claire. She had a blank expression on her face. Nick nervously half smiled at me.
Henry knocked, and, without pause, something slammed up against the door. We all gasped and jumped back even further. Henry turned around to shush us. He leaned back to the door and then nodded at Sophie.
It looked like they had some sort of system already in place. Henry shot the door handle and Sophie kicked the door open. I was impressed that she could do that in her spiked heels, but then I realized that was why she wore them. They definitely weren’t just for looking good.
Three undeads came stumbling out at us. The smell of rotting bodies was overwhelming, making my stomach protest. It was a man, woman, and small boy…maybe five-years-old. He was the first undead child that I had seen. His eyes were glazed over and putrid gray, like Nick described Jenna’s being. I couldn’t stop looking at him. A deep sadness ran through me.
Then I saw all the gore. All three of them had their throats torn out. The man was missing an arm. The woman had a massive gash across her face so her jaw was exposed. The child looked virtually untouched, if you didn’t count the blackened sludge oozing from the wound in his neck.
The woman lunged at me, and I fell back into Nate and Claire. The three of us tumbled over. I was fiercely trying to crab-crawl backward to get away from the undeads, when I felt someone grab my arms and drag me back. The child was snarling and grabbing at my feet. I had a feeling, if he had gotten me, I would have been his first meal.
