She began to cry.

It was one of those pathetic cries, filled with self-pity, and frustration. She had dreamed of so much more for herself than this at thirty two years of age. She wanted to be a writer, maybe a Graphic Designer with a family in the Burbs somewhere by now. She had never dreamed she would be stuck in a job with no future, living alone on a paycheck-to-paycheck budget. Dreams die hard when dreams decide to die.

She turned towards the door when something caught her attention. There was light pushing into the room around the edges of it.

She rolled off the bed, put on a pair of shorts and a tee-shirt, and then grabbed the loaded gun lying on top of the nightstand. She cocked it, and walked with slow caution towards the door that led into her apartment. Her heart was pounding in her chest, as her lungs filled with heavy air.

She reached the door, and slipped her hands into the light. It had texture. It was warm, and soothing, and glowing yellow-gold. She felt love in that light. A hope of a family. A wanting of a child.

Exp:

When they reached the cave, they stopped.

Junior turned on his dad’s flashlight, which pushed out a light that was almost worthy of spotlight status. This light was somewhat soothing to the boys even though their heart rate didn’t agree. They were now beyond timid. They had now moved on to full-blown scared, but they weren’t about to turn around now.

They made their way into the cave with caution and ease, as the darkness wrapped around their small little bodies. It was a suffocating darkness, and Seth could swear he couldn’t breathe once they were inside. He wondered if Junior was feeling the same effect.

Seth looked behind him, and it was disheartening to see the full moon light was now gone none of its beams could penetrate this darkness.

They moved on, deeper into the cave, Junior’s beam of light doing its best to cut through the black. Seth thought it looked like it was struggling to do its job, but it gave them enough light to see by.

In every corner there stood a ghost or goblin, or some fiend ready to snuff out their young life, vague objects picked up by the struggling light. The coolness of the cave helped to add to this and so did the wind. Its voice inside the cave (stronger than the last time they were here) was one of a ghost like howl.

Somehow they found the entrance that led to the abandoned beach, found it or were guided to it – something to ponder upon.

“Are you sure about this?” Seth didn’t care if he was called a baby or not. He was on shaky knees, and he wasn’t afraid to admit it.

Junior surprised him with this answer. “We can turn back now if you want.”

Seth thought about it for a moment. “We’ve come this far. Why turn back now?”

The boys gave one more pause, and then they stepped through the hole and onto the abandoned beach . . .

This was a pretty good movie overall, but it never really built to anything.  I kept expecting it to bring on the tension and build and build and build like a great spy caper, but it never did.  It felt kind of flat, but even with that said this still turned out to be very entertaining, maybe not for 8 dollars a ticket entertaining, but still it didn’t disappoint when it came to action and chase scenes.  Pierce Brosnan also did a great job in the lead – he’s still got it folks, but he is showing his age.  All in all I would have to say that this would be a great rental, but it isn’t worth paying full ticket for.

So, have you seen it or not?  Have you read the books it is based on?  Let me know.

A New Blog Called A Zombie for the Holidays is now available.

I debated about it and debated about it, but I decided to go ahead and journey on with a brand new blog.  This blog has some things in common with what you have been following on here.  

Zombie 1 - High Resolution

A lot of the promotional updates, the freebies on Kindle, the bits of information about self-publishing, and things of that nature will be moving over to my new blog.  I still plan to do what I have been doing here, so don’t worry.  I just need a place to kind of expand my promotions, and the information I find in the world of self-publishing.  Also, I plan to focus in on the horror genre, and post things related to it.  Most of my stories fall into that genre, so what better what to promote myself than by talking about things that I enjoy .  

ZombeTG

I also have big plans for a Zombie Holiday based trilogy, which will be publishing soon.  This trilogy will link up with “A Zombie Christmas.”  I plan to cover the holidays of Thanksgiving and New Years in a zombie filled world.  What I plan to do with this new blog is to post examples from the stories, and kind of give the audience a sneak peek before these stories are published.

If you want to make sure you don’t miss them when they are published, please drop me an email: atothewr@gmail.com. I will send you a PDF copy for free of “A Vampire at Christmas” for all your troubles.

Thanks for reading, thanks for following.
