#8Sunday: Missy the Archer ~ Excerpt from IT TOOK A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE #romance #scifi #zombies

Weekend Writing Warriors personal

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you for coming to visit me! Here’s one last excerpt from IT TOOK A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE, a New Adult Interracial Small Town Romance story that occurs during a Zombie Apocalypse. I’ve received edits back for JAGER, the second book in my Galactic Defenders series, and hope to start sharing excerpts from that next weekend.

Set-up: Last week you were grossed out by the description of Missy’s dad as a zombie. Well, her and RJ have had to leave the bunker to get food and other supplies. RJ has killed the majority of the zombies, but on the way back from the bunker, Missy proves she isn’t helpless.


RJ rushed down the stairs and set the food on the cot. Just as he reached for the last box, snarling came from the area they’d heard the bushes rustle. A cat lunged out and raced toward them. Not just any cat, but a giant white house cat with its fur knotted with blood and half of its face missing.

He sucked in a breath, stunned by the sight. Animals had been affected by the virus as well. Yet the cat didn’t reach them. It thumped to the ground five feet away, an arrow embedded in its skull.

Missy stepped over to the animal, planted a foot on its body, and pulled the arrow out. Definitely not her first time using that weapon.


IT TOOK A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE

It started with a kiss.

Then the zombies came. Now, Missy must work with the neighbor her parents hate if she wants to survive. But zombies aren’t the only threat to her life, or her heart.

#8Sunday: In the Bunker ~ Excerpt from IT TOOK A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE #romance #scifi #zombies

Weekend Writing Warriors personal

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you for coming to visit me! Here’s another excerpt from IT TOOK A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE, a New Adult Interracial Small Town Romance story that occurs during a Zombie Apocalypse…

Set-up: Last week RJ was heading to his bunker with Missy, but her dad stopped them, along with Missy’s zombie brother and mother. Well, they made it to the bunker, but someone wasn’t so lucky…


After RJ pressed the power button, the screen took forever to come on. What started out as a little dot of light grew into live feed of his yard and the zombies in it, all of them wandering aimlessly. All except the one at the door to the bunker. Her father, now one of the undead.

She reeled back at the sight of him, the bone of his right arm exposed through a missing chunk of flesh, muscle, and whatever else used to be there. But, his face was worse. One eyeball hung from its socket while that side of his face drooped past his chin, as if his skin disintegrated and slowly fell off.

And still he banged. He knew they were in there. Instead of wanting her away from RJ, he simply wanted in, to eat their flesh, turn them into zombies as her mother and brother had done to him.

“Turn it off,” she said as her stomach turned.

It started with a kiss.

Then the zombies came. Now, Missy must work with the neighbor her parents hate if she wants to survive. But zombies aren’t the only threat to her life, or her heart.

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you for coming to visit me! Here’s another excerpt from IT TOOK A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE, a New Adult Interracial Small Town Romance story that occurs during a Zombie Apocalypse…

Set-up: Last week RJ finally got his kiss, but they were interrupted by Missy’s mom. The zombies arrive shortly after, and Missy and RJ make a run for it. RJ receives a text from his father (a doctor) saying that a virus has been released in the hospital turning people into zombies and that he should go to the underground bunker in their backyard. Missy is ready to go with him until her dad arrives.


“Dad, you have got to come with us. There is a viral outbreak at the hospital, and it’s spreading through town.”

No way did he want to be in a confined space with that man. But, if it meant getting Missy to safety, he’d suck up his pride.

“I know.” Missy’s father lunged forward and grabbed her hand, yanking her away from RJ. “Your mother and brother are sick. We need to get them to the hospital.”

RJ heard moaning before two figures appeared around the corner. The rest of Missy’s family had been infected all right, their faces gaunt and bodies twitching as they sauntered closer and closer.

#SFRMonday ~ 10 Sci-Fi and Dystopian Movies to watch in 2015

#SFRMonday

Hello everyone! I’m going to kick off #SFRMonday with a look at this year’s Sci-Fi movies to be released. (Next week I will start featuring Sci-Fi Romance books from a multitude of authors.) I try and do this movie list every year and let you know how many of the previous year’s Sci-Fi movies that I did watch. You can find my list from 2014 here.

Of the fourteen movies on last year’s list, I went to the theater to watch five of them: Divergent, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Guardians of the Galaxy, and The Maze Runner. All fabulous movies! Plus, I saw Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles twice. Would you count that as sci-fi? I tried to watch Interstellar, but it had left the local theater by the time I had a chance to go. Plus, Home and Jupiter Ascending didn’t release last year, but will release in 2015. Yay! I do plan on catching those I missed at the theater on video or Netflix. I know I saw Under the Skin there already.

Here’s my list for 2015…

1. Predestination – January 9

 

2. The Phoenix Project – January 16

 

3. Jupiter Ascending – February 6

 

4. Robot Overlords – March 19

 

5. Insurgent – March 20

 

6. Home – March 27

 

7. Air – March

 

8. Avengers: Age of Ultron – May 1

 

9. Jurassic World – June 12

 

10. Star Wars: The Force Awakens – December 18

 

Now, there are plenty more Sci-Fi titles releasing in 2015. I just didn’t have enough information on them, or wasn’t interested.

So, which of these movies are you looking forward to watching in 2015?
