A Zombie Crawl Ushers in Prizes and the End of an Epic Undead Saga





October is the scariest of months, and to celebrate all things Undead, the fine folks at Band of Dystopians have set up the Zombie Crawl Blog Party and Giveaway (see schedule below). Please visit them to read more and to earn chances to win some great swag.

As my contribution to the crawl, I'm treating you to an exclusive inside peek at my forthcoming novel, Dead Reckoning, the second book in the Jessie's Game duology and the final installment of my GAMELAND saga, the epic cyberpunk, dystopian zombie series. (The final cover has not yet been decided).

To kick this off, I'm offering the entire first season omnibus (8 books) for only 99 cents everywhere and chance to win a personalized ecopy of Signs of Life (Jessie's Game, Book 1)! Just leave a comment below. The omnibus offer is good only through Halloween, so hurry to your favorite ebook store to get it. 



EXCERPT FROM DEAD RECKONING (JESSIE'S GAME #2)

The lights in the cell flickered, then went off, throwing them all into a dull, gray twilight. The backup generator kicked in, along with the emergency strobes. Stu didn’t seem to notice.
Eric held up his free hand. “He needs help. We need to call someone.”
The rattling of the ventilation system came to a halt. All was eerily silent for a moment. Both men looked outside the cell, as if sensing that something had changed.
Marco sputtered on the floor.
From elsewhere in the block, someone shouted in dismay. Then the racket quickly grew as the other prisoners took up the chorus.
Stu turned back and stepped toward Eric again. Marco was holding onto the cuff of his pants, gawping for air. Stu tried to shake him off. “Get offa me, homes.”
“Wait a minute,” Eric said. He could see that Marco was trying to speak. He was gesturing with his other hand out through the bars of the cell. “There’s something—”
A screamed pierced through the growing clamor. The banging noises and shouts sharply increased. Then came another scream.
But Stu was too focused to hear them. He leaped. Eric hadn’t been expecting it, but he instinctively stepped back, barely managing to avoid what might have been a fatal attack, but Stu had misjudged the distance and gotten off balance. Eric grabbed his shirt and pulled him down. “Something’s happening out there! You need to stop!”
“It’s nothing compared to what’s happenin’ in here, f**ker,” Stu growled as he stood up again. His eyes flashed red. He backed Eric up against the bunk and laid the edge of the shiv against his nose.
“Now you gonna see what I’m gonna do to you for f**king up my friend Marco.”

  2. A month ago I've finished the omnibus, and the story had me reading like crazy trough it until the last chapter. This part of the saga is the next one in my sight so I'm playing my best hand here trying to get that ecopy of signs of life. I know I'm still in the pendient with the review of the A Dark and Sure Descent: Being a True Account of the Long Island Outbreak, but I'm reading it slowly and carefully on my printed book.

  10. I'm reading Dark & Sure Descent right now. I've read my way through all the other books: GAMELAND, Golgotha, Velveteen, Infected: Hacked Files From The Gameland Archive and Jessie's Game: Signs Of Life. I can't wait for the final book to come out. Are you really sure that Dead Reckoning is the last one? I don't know if I'm ready to leave Jessie and the gang behind.
