Reading During the Covid-19 Outbreak. #Lizzie Borden #zombies
I heard that Amazon is pushing book mailing down on the priority list right now, understandably, in favor of shipping out other much-needed supplies.
But... if you want something to read and crave a print book, check out Bookshop.org to buy print copies of Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter and Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter 2: The Axe Will Fall, and have them sent to your local bookstore. Click the titles for links to both books. Stay safe and healthy!
New #Zombie 'Drabbles' Out Now! #fiction
I've got a new story, "A Mother's Love," in the recently released anthology, "100 Word Horrors 3: An Anthology of Horror Drabbles."
My story is one I've revisited several times in different lengths as the theme is a fun one to write and to see how I can change it. The reviewer at EricaRobynReads seemed to like it, too, and gave it a 5/5 rating, with the anthology also getting a 5 rating. Check out the full review at the link above.
* Get the Kindle version on Amazon. (Paperback coming soon!)

The story continues in Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter 2: The Axe Will Fall... After the trial and being acquitted of murder, Lizzie thought her life would be "normal' again, but can it? When her sister, Emma, is caught up in the latest zombie outbreak, Lizzie has no choice but to pick up her axe again...
I figure it doesn't hurt to ask. With thousands (ok, millions!) of books out there, it's hard to be heard above the din. Why you do all kinds of things to get your book noticed. So...
