Excerpt from Demon Energy

A man lay on a bed.

His dreams were vivid and strong–evil things done by evil beings haunted those dreams.

His soul felt lost, departed.

He wasn’t himself.

How long had he been this way?

How long had he suffered in this torment of a hellish nightmare?

He wasn’t sure.

A distant knock on the door.

No, it wasn’t a knock. It was pounding. It was the sound of breaking. The door shattered inward. He managed to turn his sweaty head, brown hair matted to his skin, face covered in a thick sweat, body covered in cuts and bruises–all self-inflicted by his fingernails and his own fists.

He felt his soul losing again. The demons were crawling around inside of him, pushing his soul back to the shadows. He had no choice but to watch. He was a passenger inside his own body.

The demons raised…

Tuesdays with Mike and The Mike Beem Chronicles (3/21/2017): A Zombie Christmas 2

Another Tuesday. Another day to catch up with Mike and The Mike Beem Chronicles. Enjoy.

One Writer Ranting

A boy lost. A family desperate. It’s Christmas in a Zombie Apocalypse and Mike Beem is once again aiming for another Holiday miracle. His goal this year isn’t toys for the kids in the neighborhood. His goal this time is trying to save one small life so another family doesn’t have to suffer the way he suffered.

Mike Beem lowered his rifle, put his right eye on the scope, and closed his left. The zombie he was about to shoot was an ugly sucker. He stood about five feet tall, and was currently surrounded by 10 other zombies – all of them dead, rotten, and ugly. They were currently trying to kill a frantic man standing on top of a closed dumpster. He was waving a dying flare at them, firing an empty pistol over and over again in hopes that…

EXP: A VAMPIRE AT CHRISTMAS

Talan Gawayn became a vampire in the 15th century on a cold, starry, full-moon night just after the first big snow of November. He was walking a less traveled path, on his way home from seeing his fiancé, whom he planned to marry the following spring, when three men stepped out of the shadows to rob him. He fought them…

Free Read Sunday (3/12/2017): Flesh for the Zombies

New post for my new blog!

One Writer Ranting

A zombie shuffled down the street underneath a gigantic yellow full moon. He was dressed in an apron, a former fry cook still carrying a spatula in his hand. He shambled along down the road, solo, unaware of the cool night air or the peaceful sound of crickets ushering autumn into the world. A silent bullet suddenly and violently took the top part of his head off, sending the undead creature tumbling and bleeding to the ground. He rested there, unmoving, spatula still gripped tight in his hand.

“How are things up there?”

Mike hit the button on his Walkie Talkie. “All good, Fred. You?”

“Nothing on this side. How does the gate look?”

“Holding tight,” Mike replied, as he looked down from the platform of Guard Tower 1 to the makeshift gate they had made earlier that day. The gate now consisted of his SUV and truck along with…

Tuesdays with Mike and The Mike Beem Chronicles (3/7/2017)

New Cover for Flesh for the Zombies! I am also trying to possibly start another new blog. This is the second post for this new blog.

This is the opening to Chapter 1: Disorder

Mike Beem lowered his rifle, put his right eye on the scope, and closed his left eye.

Bam!

Donna Marie’s head exploded. Her zombie shuffle ended when her lifeless body hit the pavement. Mike aimed again, and this time Donny’s head exploded, showering a nearby window in a spray of bright red blood. Mike reloaded, and aimed again. This time it was another much loved neighbor. Another head shot, and down she went. Again and again, he reloaded, and aimed. Each shot ringing true until every zombie he thought used to be someone he loved was now head-splattered and dead. When he was finished, he looked over at Double Trouble (who had been watching on in horror) and saw they were in as much shock as he was. All three of them, coming back from a Halloween candy run, weren’t expecting this.
