Thank you, everyone, for stopping by my Snippet Sunday & Writing Warriors’ #8Sunday blog hop post. Sorry for being a bit sporadic these last few weeks, but I’ve had a great deal stuff going on. I’m probably going to continue to be sporadic until the new year. When I am here, though, I’ll be posting from my new release, Resistant, a sci-fi/horror romance. Resistant is romance set in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. Once Saying Goodbye gets back from editing, I’ll go back to sharing from that novella.
In this excerpt, Sahara, the main character, is alone and unwilling to leave her house due to the zombies roaming her neighborhood. To occupy her time, she spends her days picking them off from her front porch.
I fired the rifle five more times. These zombies were easier to kill because they were closer, but then that gave me another problem. I now had four rotting bodies right outside of my fence. They would most definitely bring more. Cursing myself for being stupid, I scanned the street for more zombies and seeing more than a few come out of dark corners, I packed up my toys and went inside.
My fence buzzed on and off most of the day. The electricity didn’t kill them, but like the animals they seemed to be, they understood that it hurt and they should stay away from it. Eventually, as the day started to close, I noticed that it had been a while since I heard the fence. I peeked out one of my upstairs windows and saw that most of the zombies had moved on. They had carried off the majority of the four zombies I had killed.
Thank you for stopping by. If you want to read more excerpts from other authors or if you want to join in the fun, stop by both blogs and peruse their sights.
Resistant, a Sci-Fi/Horror Romance
Before the outbreak, Sahara was a high school teacher living alone in a small Alabama town. She saw her life as nothing more than endless days of teaching children Shakespeare and nights reading paranormal romances. She was happy with her life, as quiet and mundane as it was.
After the outbreak, Sahara becomes a warrior traveling across the country in search of sanctuary. She spends her days and nights killing zombies, searching for food, trying to maintain her sanity, and if Daniel has his say, finding love.
How will Sahara help those who are left find safety and stability in a world full of nightmares? Will she stop resisting the man she loves and open her heart, knowing that he may not live through the next second let alone the next year? Join Sahara and her people in a fight against creatures set out to devour them and the unknown threat controlling them to find out.
