Thank you, everyone, for stopping by my Snippet Sunday & Writing Warriors’ #8Sunday blog hop post. Sorry for missing last week. It was Halloween weekend, and I had a number of plans and had a bit of a head cold. 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 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 trying to figure out if there are any zombies in her neighbor’s yard.
The second day of the outbreak, I saw Mr. and Mrs. Jackson fleeing their home with their two zombie teenage sons chasing behind them. The parents had been able to lure their two sons beyond their electric fence, then they circled around behind them, got back into their yard, and closed the gate on the boys. I hadn’t heard from the two since.
To test the waters, I threw a raw chunk of hamburger meat over my fence and onto their front walk. The couple had wandered around from the side of the house after the smell of fresh meat. The smell had also brought a couple of other zombies out of hiding, but they ran into the Jacksons’ fence and quickly backed away. I took out the Jacksons quickly and waited for any others to come out of hiding. The couple didn’t have but the two children, and I was sure I hadn’t seen anyone else enter the house, but you never knew.
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*****$2.99*****
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.
