On the back of getting my lengthy science fiction novel, CRYO, published, I’m happy to say that my zombie novella has also been released at Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk and Smashwords(soon to come to iBooks, B&N and Kobo).
I hadn’t intended on writing a zombie book at all, but the storyline sprung into my head last October and I was off, finishing the novel in just a few weeks. It seems like 2013 might be the year of the zombie too, with both World War Z and Warm Bodies coming to cinemas – I can’t for either! 😀
Anyway, here’s the blurb Pacifier 6.
The apocalypse has come and gone. A disease, an infection, that blackened the Earth with horror. Then came Pacifier 6; a drug to calm the evil, to dampen the cravings for flesh and bone. Now you go to the store and pick out a zombie as if you were buying a new pet.
But what happens when you realise that familiar faces still have feelings?
Carl’s pulling himself back together, attempting to cope with the losses that life has dealt him. Amidst the horror of the past few months, he begins to realise that death isn’t necessarily the end; it can be the start of something new, something that has never been seen before. With everyone around him battling to keep society intact, Carl manages to see beyond the ravaged faces of those he once knew. There’s a new creature in the darkness, a consciousness that most have overlooked, and it’s waiting to reveal itself.
