What Happened After I Died?

Let me tell you about the day I died. Well, there isn’t much to tell really. I was stupid and young. Driving too fast and texting was more important than looking where I was going. Car accidents happen every day and people die every day.  I simply became part of that statistic.

The day I died isn’t as important as the day I came back. It was your typical Tuesday morning with snow falling from a cloudy sky. After an eternity of floating through a black void of empty space that was my afterlife, a flash of light devoured my eyes and sent a shockwave of torment ripping through my chest. That burst of energy kicked my heart into overdrive which triggered an effect on my brain activity that got me to open my eyes and stared into the buzzing annoyance of a fluorescent light in the ceiling.

Like I said; a typical Tuesday morning.

I woke up in an empty warehouse, strapped to a metal examination table in the middle of a rundown room. That fluorescent light was the only source of electricity in the entire three-story building. No heart monitors, no electrodes attached to my skin. Nothing. It was as if the people who wanted to bring me back, stopped caring if I ever would and took off.

I found clothes in a bag near the table with slip on shoes that were a size too big. I found my way out into the snow, clutching onto the false reality that I was trapped in some sort of heaven or hell. It took a bit for me to realize that the coldness of winter didn’t pierce my skin like it once had. I saw no fog from my breath or goose bumps cascading down my arms and spine. Something about my return to life erased my sense of hot and cold and that was more than fine with me. Sweating sucks and freezing is no cake walk either.

The first town I came to was filled with strange life and fancy new cars and technology I had never seen before. People passed me awkward glances and crossed the street to avoid the strange girl walking along the sidewalk. It wasn’t until I saw my reflection in a storefront window that I realized why they gave me such odd looks.

My hair was a complete disaster of tangled curls and dried blood. Purple bags stuck out against the pale skin of my face and deep veins throbbed on my neck. I leaned closer to the window and noticed a trail of dried blood at the corner of my mouth. I scrubbed it away with the sleeve of my hoodie and ran like hell to get away from the crowd.

Running only attracted more of the wrong attention. Someone called the police and sirens blared through that town like an ocean of madness ready to release a tidal wave of death in my direction.

But I still ran. I ran until the town was a mere shadow in the background of the world behind me. Until the snow stopped falling and I was completely alone in the middle of nowhere.

I ran for days, passing through cities and towns that gave me the same derisive looks. I met the same fate as police cars and governmental figures chased after me. And for what? Because I came back from the dead? Because I walked upright like a normal human being and could put on a damn good act to blend in?

No. They chase me for none of those reasons. They chase me because of what I became after I woke up. After I learned the truth about what happened to my body after I died and the insanity of experiments that brought me back.

You see, as much as I hate to admit this I am no longer a human. I can put on makeup to hide my pale skin and purple veins. I can put in contacts to deceive those around me that my eyes aren’t filled with a hunger drive so strong it could wipe out an entire city block within minutes. I can dress the part and act the part as a normal human being, but deep down inside my once beating heart, I know I’m not.

I’m nothing more than a savage beast, doomed to roam the world until the end of time. A constant hunger always burning in my mind and I can’t give in. I don’t want to give in to the creature I became after death or face the disgusting path my life is now headed down.

The government is after me. People want to kill me. I can blend in with a corpse like there’s no freaking tomorrow. I wish I could find the demented people who did this to me and turned me into a creature I prefer not to recognize, but there is no escaping this. There is no hiding the truth from myself or the rest of the world.

I am a zombie, but I’m trying not to be.

The Human Race

I feel like it’s time to do a little book promoting tonight. This was the very first series I published and I still can’t believe I took that leap and put this one out there. It’s a surreal feeling knowing that more than just my family can read something I’ve poured my heart and soul into. It’s an awesome feeling!

So, if you’re into zombies, vampires, and an apocalyptic adventure trilogy, then snag this series and get lost in the story. You’ll follow Bridget on her journey to survival and madness. She faces death on so many occasions, yet walks away with a brave face and the determination to keep on going. Is there love? Yes. Is there sadness? Of course. Is there a happy ending? I’ll let you be the judge of that.

Happy reading!

Release of The Main Event: Book 3 of The Human Race

The day has finally come! The third and final book in The Human Race trilogy is out for purchase on Kindle as well as in print.

Bridget’s world is completely shattered. With Ryder gone, she no longer has anything to live for. Trevor has the cure now and with it he plans to rule the world. There is nothing she can do to stop him and the sadness is forcing her to be weak.

Depression is looming inside of her, taking over the very part of her that wants to survive. She finds herself wanting death as her mind goes over every painful memory of the great life she once had. The pain from those memories becomes too much and she wills herself to forget it all.

By forgetting her life, she lets loose the monster that dwells in her unbeating heart. It knows nothing of her past and only plans for the future it needs to survive through.

Anyway, for an update, I believe the release date for this third and final book in The Human Race trilogy will be next Friday, March 27th.

The Main Event: Book 3 of The Human Race

Since I am currently in the process of formatting and uploading the third installment of my zombie/vampire trilogy, The Main Event, I thought it was about time I show off the description that will be seen on the back cover of the book. I am pretty excited and thrilled with how this one came to an end and at the same time I am a bit sad to see this creation of mine come to an end. However, here is the description. I hope you find it enjoyable.

Bridget’s world is completely shattered. With Ryder gone, she no longer has anything to live for. Trevor has the cure now and with it he plans to rule the world. There is nothing she can do to stop him and the sadness is forcing her to be weak.

Depression is looming inside of her, taking over the very part of her that wants to survive. She finds herself wanting death as her mind goes over every painful memory of the great life she once had. The pain from those memories becomes too much and she wills herself to forget it all.

By forgetting her life, she lets loose the monster that dwells in her unbeating heart. It knows nothing of her past and only plans for the future it needs to survive through.

Cover Reveal for The Main Event!

With the end in sight for the last book in The Human Race trilogy, The Main Event, I have finally created the perfect cover. I beleive it captures the depressing time that the story takes place during as well as being dark and mysterious. I am still editing right now, but I plan on having the release date to be sometime in March or April at the very latest.

The Human Race Book 3

I realized that it has been a while since I have given an update on The Human Race trilogym so here it is. As we all know, the first two are out and available to buy in paperback or download on the kindle. I am getting some pretty nice feedback about the both of them and that is just awesome. Fans are simply the best! The link to purchase them is still at the top of my blog page here, so go ahead and check it out to your heart’s content.

The third, and final, book in the series is still in progress. I just crossed over the 50,000 word mark and I always get excited when I make it there on anything I am working on. The title is still going to be The Main Event and it still follows Bridget on her journey through the apocalypse. She is still fighting zombies and vampires, but she also is fighting a much bigger enemy as well. Humans! One in particular and if you’ve read The Fighting Chance (book 2) you’ll know exactly who I am talking about. Of course, I can’t give too much away. I like to be sneaky and mean like that.

My plan for this one is to get the first draft done hopefully by February. Then it will be revised and edited, then revised and edited some more because you can’t have a masterpiece without those two wonderful terms of enjoyment added to the to-do list. I say that with much sarcasm because editing is a pain, as every writer on the planet knows.

Outside of the zombie and vampire realm, I am working on a secret project. I’m hoping that once it is finished and edited to perfection that it won’t stay a secret for long. With that one, I intend to query agents and go through the whole rejection letter process all over again until I find that magic person to grant me the key to traditional publication. Don’t worry, I still plan on doing the independent thing on the side during this journey of mine. It’s just been a dream of mine to see what I’ve created on bookshelves everywhere or even on the big screen. But, I mustn’t get my hopes up yet. I still have plenty of work to do.
