After more edits than I care to admit, writing and re-writing, critiques and more formatting than a human should be able to tolerate, Zombie Bedtime Stories: Locked In is now available on Amazon and Smashwords.
Here are the links:
Here’s the cover art. I can’t get enough of showing this off:
And the sample:
Haley threw up her arms as he made a lunge for her face. His unimaginable strength pitched them both to the ground. The blow winded her. Her eyes widened in alarm as she squirmed under his wizened form to keep his decaying teeth away from her flesh. His fetid breath was tinged with the scent of blood, the overwhelming stench burning into her lungs. Haley thought she was going to vomit. The three officers and Frank shouted as they struggled to gain control of the crazed man. Deafened by Buddy’s shrieks, the terror of the cacophony threatened to paralyze her. A Taser was drawn, but its discharge barely seemed to jolt Buddy, prompting a renewed flurry of attacks. Haley felt a discernible electric tingle pass through her own body, so she knew the device had worked, but on the wrong person. With this realization her thoughts became frantic and incoherent. As she felt her arms weaken from the exertion, she couldn’t help wondering if Buddy was drugged.
Many thanks go to my friends and family and my Tweeps and readers here for their encouragement and support. You guys rock. Especially my cover artist and cheerleader (and photographer, and soundman, and video editor, he really does so much!)
What about part two? I’m glad I proactively asked that question for you. The rough draft is about half done. It’s a longer story than Locked In was, and I’m convinced that it will be just as enjoyable to write, edit and re-read.
Finally, if you’re interested in reviewing this on your blog/site, let me know and send me a link.
