From author Rose Wynters comes Book 1 in a new zombie-horror, fantasy fiction series set in Pleasant, Louisiana. Can this checkout girl survive the night when her town experiences a zombie apocalypse?
Tabitha Alexander is just your everyday, small-town checkout girl. At 18, she’s just graduated from high school, and her long-term goals don’t extend beyond enjoying her freedom and finding a boyfriend.
Her whole life was spread out in front of her…Until the first body slams into the glass, desperate to feed on the living standing underneath the bright lights.
That night Tabitha learns how horrifying it really is when the dead come back to life.
Barely escaping with her life, she manages to make it home but is forced to watch as lives are brutally ended when zombies take over. They are supernaturally strong, unlike the zombies portrayed by films. Nobody knows if they will live to see the dawn of a new day.
By the time the night is done, her neighbor and the man she has a crush on has joined them, as well as her best friend and her father. A new group of unlikely survivors emerges from the death and carnage that surround them, saved by an attractive, mysterious man with unknown motives.
This book tells you how the zombie nightmare begins…Pleasant will never be the same again.
Recommended for adults and young adults 16 years of age and older.
A woman moved in front of the camera, pushing the reporter out of the way with her body, before grabbing the microphone from his slack grip. Her face was pale, but her dark eyes were filled with determination as she stared into the lens. She got right to the point.
“Don’t let this reporter sugarcoat this with his evasions. There are dead people walking out there, and they are fast, deadly, and supernaturally strong. There is a name for them, one we’ve heard before but thought was only fiction. These dead people are zombies, and they don’t care about nothing but getting their teeth into your flesh.”
The reporter tried to grab the microphone back, but she shot him a deadly look. “You’re not getting this till I’m done,” she told him in a firm voice. “I’m not gonna stand by while you get your five seconds of fame and leave these innocent people out there to die. People deserve to know what they are up against, and how to protect themselves. Now back off.” Surprisingly, he stood still and listened.
She turned back to the camera. “I know there are some of you out there that don’t believe in this. You wanna box it all up, neat and tidy-like, and believe that there must be some rational explanation for this, and come morning it will all be gone. If you believe that though, you’re going to find yourself dead before the sun ever hits the sky tomorrow.”
Prize is 2 eBook copies (1 each to 2 winners) of “Phase One: Identify (Territory of the Dead #1)”. Contest is open internationally and ends August 7. Must be 18 years of age or older to enter.
