#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 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. Thank you, Rachel! I honestly used to feel the same way about zombies until a couple years ago. Though my husband doesn’t get the appeal, there are some great zombie stories, movies, and shows out there.
