Cover Reveal and A Free Read: A Zombie Thanksgiving

I know we are nowhere close to the Thanksgiving holiday, but if you need a little taste of the season today (6/21) and tomorrow (6/22)  is your chance. I think this new cover works better than the others I’ve made for it. It still doesn’t have that pop I want it to have, but for now this is still the best cover I’ve ever given it.

Tuesdays with Mike and The Mike Beem Chronicles (6/13/2017): A Zombie Christmas

See, told you I would get back to Mike Beem. How about some Christmas cheer in June? Might help with the heat.

5 out of 5 stars – I love zombies and I love Christmas ~ A winner!

Description: This short story is about three men who risk life and limb in a Zombie Apocalypse in order to bring happiness to surviving kids on Christmas Morning.

Mike leaned down, and looked out the peep-hole as a zombie shambled down off the porch. There were four of them out there. All zombied up, rotting, bloody, fresh from death, and they were all dressed like carolers and holding caroling books. One had his book upside down, two of them had theirs sideways, and the smart one, the one who knocked, had his right side up.

Mike didn’t put up anything with lights in it or on it. There were no lights around the house. He had muted decorations so they wouldn’t attract attention. He didn’t know why or how the carolers had found him, but they did.

Mike began to smile, as the zombies grunted out Jingle Bells and moved on to Silent Night. He didn’t know if he should shoot them or let them be. He stood there a moment and thought about it, listening to the comical tune coming from the mouths of those zombies. He went over to the window and looked out onto the lawn. Their singing was attracting other zombies, so he knew he had to take them out, funny as it was, he had to do it.

He put on his cold weather gear and ventured back upstairs. He walked into the master bedroom and walked over to the balcony doors. He stepped outside and into the cold grey light of dusk.

Tuesday Promotions (6/6/2017): The Dead of Winter

5 Stars out of 5: Frozen with Fear

Description: A short story about an apocalyptic nightmare in a crisp frozen landscape filled with winter and living corpses.Two men try to find safety in this dead world. Hoping to ride out the night. Hoping to find warmth and shelter. Hoping not to become food for the zombies.

Eric surveyed the road ahead and behind him. The world was filled with death. The highway was littered with silent, rusting cars sitting on rotting tires, waiting on drivers who were never going to drive them again. Ripped apart, torn open and partially eaten corpses littered the ground in various forms of decay. The corpses ranged from children to elderly adults. The zombies had done a number on them when they went into their “feeding frenzy.” The bodies that weren’t on the ground or pulled from their cars were still seated, and most of them still strapped into their seat belts, like they were still driving to whatever destination they had been going to before the world fell into death’s harsh embrace.

Eric breathed in deep and felt the cold air settle into his lungs. Bitter winter winds whipped at his face and tore at his clothes, trying to get inside the protective layers. Flakes of snow fell from the sky, nothing more than flurries.

“It’s something,” Eric replied, looking down at the white and grey cat in its carrier. He then put his eyes back on the man sitting with his back against a car.

Eric stood about six feet tall, with a long beard, and long hair. He had been alone for quite some time, so his appearance would be enough to frighten most people. He wasn’t emaciated or thin, actually quite muscular, but the lack of a good shower was starting to catch up with him. Dirt now clung to anything and everything it could attach itself to. He did his best to stay clean, but without hot soapy water there was only so much he could do.

“I guess we should go check him out. It’d be nice to have a conversation again. However -” Eric took out his pistol and checked the chambers. Six bullets accounted for, waiting for launch, locked and loaded. “- we will have this little guy just in case, just in case that guy isn’t what he appears to be.” He began to walk, carrier in his left hand, gun in his right.

Cover Reveal: Devil at the Wheel

This story used to be called “Joyride.” I thought it might need a better cover and a better title, so above is what I came up with. I think it really captures this story about two boys and the evil car they take for a joyride. It isn’t running free, because it isn’t exclusive to Amazon anymore. It is though available in EPUB and MOBI at the links below.  It will be running free of charge one page at a time on Sundays on this very blog. Tune in tomorrow to read it.

Available in its entirety below for 99 cents.
