#8Sunday: Zombie Family ~ Excerpt from IT TOOK A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE #romance #scifi #sfr

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 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.


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.

  1. What a dilemma. Will she help her family or race to safety with RJ? Whatever she chooses, she’ll have regrets. Great job, Jessica. You’ve chased your heroine (and hero) up a tree and now you’re throwing rocks at them. Can it get worse? Probably.
