EXCERPT from Dying Days 2 by Armand Rosamilia:

Chapter One

The undead came on, wave after wave, almost in time with the pounding of the surf to their right. For six hours, they filled the dunes and the strip of A1A with their rotting, shambling carcasses.

There were still hundreds of them below, wandering in and out of the ocean, stumbling over the dunes, under the stilt houses and clogging up the street.

At some point, they’d figured out how to climb the stairs to two stilt houses, killing the occupants of one and being slaughtered, in turn, by the survivors in the other until a barrier could be erected. None of the survivors in the other stilt houses said anything, but everyone knew that once this attack was over, the occupants would all need thorough checking for bite wounds.

DARLENE BOBICH: ZOMBIE KILLER

Chapter One

Anything But Luck

Darlene Bobich never believed in luck. There was a reason for everything, and whether it was the good graces of God Above or skills and experience that got you through, it was never a random occurrence. Things happened for a reason, as her daddy used to say.

This morning she put a bullet through her daddy’s heart. He didn’t stop trying to kill her, so she put another through his stomach.

The one between his eyes and the one through his left eye stopped him.

The gun, a Desert Eagle gas-operated semi-automatic, was given to her as a gift from her daddy. This was one of the first that he’d had a hand in creating when the Israeli manufacturer had moved its operations to Maine.

A small five year window before the Desert…

YOUR Favorite Zombie/Post Apoc Books May 19th 2016 Edition

This summer I’ll be doing something I’ve been meaning to do for a long time… I want to recognize some great books in the zombie/post apoc fiction field. I also want to find some new books I might’ve missed myself, so…

When the Zombie Apocalypse came to Liam’s neighborhood, it came with horsemen’s trumpets. Tornado sirens wailed for an hour, as if to ensure everyone knew there was no going back.

Unfortunately, Liam was a fifteen-year-old boy condemned by bad decisions to spend the summer in the city with his 104-year-old religious great grandmother. When Grandma Marty tries to send him on his way to save himself, something deep inside awakens–he chafes at the thought of leaving her to die, and instead sees himself as a hero from one of his zombie books who can accomplish the impossible: rescue her.

As they step out her front door together to face a city filled with scared refugees, desperate law enforcement, a zombie-hunting military, and opportunist criminals and looters, Liam realizes he tied his fate to a woman who can’t walk more than ten feet without his help.

When the zombies begin to overshadow all their other problems, Liam comes to appreciate why there are no atheists in foxholes.

It’s better to die by the gun than die by the dead.

Nina’s life was irrevocably changed when humanity’s dead began to rise.
Now, she lives behind the walls.

The barricaded cities, erected by the government to protect the remnants of civilization, have become a brutal dictatorship- causing the inhabitants within to starve, steal and claw for survival. Life behind the walls has become as terrifying as roaming the zombie-ridden landscape beyond.
Citizens trade what they can to gain food, water, and shelter. Nina has only one currency—her body and she is tired of submitting herself to the greedy hands of the self-proclaimed leaders.

An opportunity to escape presents itself in the fate of a young girl named Emily-Rose. For the price of a stale piece of bread, she is set for banishment from the city, and most likely a horrific death at the hands of the deaders. Nina tells herself that it is sympathy and not self-preservation that makes her follow the young girl out of the walled metropolis, and into the overgrown world beyond.

Unused to fighting the deaders, Nina tries to scrounge for her survival and against her better judgment, begins to care for Emily-Rose. However, when you have a bread-stealing liability providing your only back up, survival seems even tougher. Nina is forced to fight for their lives, and with every zombie slain, she becomes fiercer, faster – a grim reaper with her not-so-sharp butcher’s knife.

Along the path to a safe-haven that might not exist, Nina and Emily-Rose meet Mikey who introduces them to a new life they could not imagine, a life above the ground. However, this new world brings new dangers, and darker shadows than she knew.

Nina finds out that the deaders aren’t the only thing to fear beyond the wall.

And that fear will not be ignored, or Forgotten.

In the midst of a global pandemic, a group of evacuees are marooned atop a skyscraper in a major city after a terrible helicopter crash. Abandoning the streets to millions of hungry infected, the survivors seal off the structure at the 10th floor and string wires between it and other buildings to avoid being eaten alive by the hordes rampaging below. But dwindling supplies force those still alive to take greater risks as they struggle to survive hundreds of feet off the ground.

Armand’s Bonus Suggestion

wilburn

http://amzn.to/1ZTnJ1Z

In a world where Twilight has the balls to call itself a ‘saga’, I think it’s time to take a step away from that word. I go to a book store and see a book proclaiming to be the first in a dodecology, I’m gonna buy that book just cuz the author decided to throw down that gauntlet from the start.—Indy McDaniel, author of Nady’s Nights: Road to Vengence

Truth is lost in legends and legends grow over time. They grow because we need them to be bigger and we need them to explain the things we fear. We write them for ourselves and for our world. The Dead Song Legend of Tiny “Mud Music” Jones has captured the imagination of everyone that survived the apocalypse even as he captured the music of the survivors and the music that helped us all to survive.—B.B. Tarmancula, Dead World Memorial Dedication.

(suggested by Armand Rosamilia, who said: Jay is my friend and my co-writer on a book or two, but more importantly he’s a phenomenal writer and when he digs into a unique zombie tale he’s even better. But don’t tell him I said that)

I am opening this blog up to suggestions from YOU!

I want YOU to give me one zombie/post apoc book suggestion you loved. It doesn’t have to be new. It doesn’t have to be a certain length or a certain type of zombie or post apoc story (I’ll be doing horror picks on http://armandrosamilia.com each week as well!) It just has to be something you liked enough to want to let the world know. Or the readers of this blog. 

You CANNOT CANNOT CANNOT suggest your own book. That is super tacky and frowned upon by management. 

I’ll be picking 3-5 each week and I’ll post it up each Thursday on this site and the horror fiction every Tuesday. It’s free of charge. It’s just a way for me to not miss what is out there, too. Hopefully it will become a place where zombie/post apoc readers will enjoy some new suggestions, too. I’ll even let everyone know who proudly suggested it, too! 

Send me an email with the title/author and Amazon link to the book and I’ll do the rest. Simple as that!

What is your latest zombie release?

“Mutation” and “Downfall”, books one and two of the Twenty-Five Percent series.

Quick description of it (no spoilers)

When newly turned flesh-eaters begin filling their city, Alex MacCallum and Micah Clarke find themselves having to rely on each other to survive. Trouble is, they’re more likely to kill each other. Alex is a Survivor, once bitten and infected, now cured. Micah is an anti-Survivor activist.

A zombie horror action thriller.

Something unique about it.

A hero who has been cured of the virus that turns people into flesh-eaters, joining forces with a man who hates him, leading to a lot of bickering, action, scares, and laughs.

WinterZombie2015

This is more or less a teaser for ya…

Once again, November will be Winter of Zombie blog tour time and this year I am opening it up to not only the great zombie authors I’ve worked with in the past, but the new ones as well!

Starting September 1st (or around there) I will begin accepting zombie authors onto the list who are interested in participating in the event. A few things you need to know before you send me a message in September, though:

1. You have to have RELEASED a Zombie book. Seems common sense, but…

2. Your Zombie release has to be out before October 15th so I can get all the material for it well ahead of time. Unfortunately, I will no longer accept authors promoting books being released in November or beyond, since it’s (quite frankly) a pain in the ass to update posts…
