Thank you, everyone, for stopping by my Snippet Sunday & Writing Warriors’ #8Sunday blog hop post. I hope everyone his having a great November. Who else feels way behind in their Christmas shopping and it isn’t even Thanksgiving yet?
Today, I’ll be sharing from my new release, Resistant, a sci-fi/horror romance. Resistant is romance set in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. Saying Goodbye, my paranormal love story and upcoming release, is back from editing, but I’m going to wait until December to 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. At this moment, she is raiding her neighbor's home for supplies.
I shouldered my gun and searched the house. I found no one. The bodies on the front walk were too bloated and too nasty to touch, though I seriously wanted to throw them over the fence and out of my line of sight. Not to mention their smell was drawing the attention of other zombies. They couldn’t get to me, but the sound of them moaning and growling so close was creepy. I loaded the pack on my back with all the dry food I could fit in it. Other things that wouldn’t damage in a fall, like toilet paper, I threw over the fence. I didn’t clean the house in that trip, but I did make a mental note of what the Jacksons had.
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 to check things out.
On a different note, here is an example of how widely different peoples' tastes can run. In two days I received a 5 Star Review of Resistant and a 1 Star review (my first ever). This is why I tell people if the cover and synopsis appeals to you, read it no matter what anyone else says about it. That isn't a guarantee you'll love it or hate it as much as they do, but at least you can form your own opinion. I'm sorry this person didn't enjoy the novel, but I'm glad so many others have. :)
