Some Accomplishments in Writing

The past couple of weeks have been fabulous in my writing world. On the top of my accomplishment list is that I finished the first draft of the second book in my Saving Humanity series—my new young adult books about zombies.

I know, I know. You’re totally shocked that I’m writing about zombies. NOT! You know much better than that!

The second book is called Edge of Humanity, and it continues the story of Caleb, who is trying to come to terms with his immunity. The first book in the series is called Humanity’s Hope, and it should be available in the next few months. I will let you know when it’s coming out.

Until then, here’s what Humanity’s Hope is about:

Caleb, a 17-year-old boy, survived the zombie uprising, but he didn’t come out of the ordeal unscathed. He’s been scarred—both mentally and physically. The rest of humanity is trying to rebuild, to make the world normal again. Caleb is trying to return to a normal life also, but after all he’s seen, after the loss of his family and friends, the transition is difficult. The darkness that led him down a path of self-doubt and self-harm keeps trying to creep back into his mind.

Things only become worse when he discovers he’s immune to whatever makes a zombie a zombie. Fighting zombies was predictable. He knew what to expect. Fighting humans is volatile. They are malicious and treacherous. They won’t stop to get what they want, and Caleb has to figure out exactly what that is.

*Trigger warning: attempted suicide

In addition to new books, I also republished some of my old books. As part of that plan, they got pretty new covers. Here are the new covers and what the books are about:

Drunk womanizer Duke, spends his life selfishly taking care of himself and screw the rest of the world. After one particular black-out alcoholic binge, he wakes to find the world changed the dead are rising from their graves.

Lonely, guilt-ridden Hank is someone who minds his own business, and sympathetic but strong-willed Lana is on the receiving end of harassment by other students. Forced together for survival, the three misfits must confront their world gone strange. God said the people of Earth would be punished for their sins, and so the end has come.

Duke, Hank, and Lana must walk their own paths to salvation, but they also must depend on each other. Will their salvation lie in Finding Eden?

A zombie story with inspirational elements.

This is my Christian zombie novella. You can find it on Amazon.

JD does not have a past—at least not one that she can remember—and that makes living life on Mars challenging.

With nowhere to go, she is sent to the local military academy where she is trained to become a member of the elite secret police. While there, she becomes a pawn in Roger’s struggle for military dominance and Chris’s rebellion to overthrow the military regime.

She supposedly holds a secret that will change the face of the soldier, but, unfortunately, she doesn’t know what that secret is. Her only desire is to find the truth of her existence, and finds herself thrust into a realm where the truth of her past and present is more horrific than she ever imagined.

This book is more sci fi, and it is also available on Amazon.

I’m very pleased with how the past two weeks have turned out, and I’m optimistic for the rest of the year. I’m hoping it’s going to be a great one!
