Also, book 3 is still available for preorder at 25% off the list price through release day, Dec. 3, 2016. You have 1 more week to take advantage of that! Click the banner above or >HERE< to be redirected to the Treemakers Trilogy on Amazon.

Escape the Madness

If you’re like me, you’ve had a difficult time these past few days. Maybe not because of who won the election necessarily, but because of the tension that seems to be everywhere we look. I want you first to know that I love and accept each and every one of you, no matter who you voted for, no matter how your beliefs, decisions, views, and pathways differ from my own. I fully embrace the diversity of my army of amazing readers, and I want you to know that you’re in a safe place here, with me. My hopes are that we can pull through this time as one, learn from each other, look past our differences, and lead our children, and our nation, toward a bright future, in whatever ways that may materialize.

That being said, I’d like to offer you a chance to breathe, take a step back, and get a small reprieve from the noise, the best way I know how. Reading is such an amazing way to relax, give our monkey brains a rest from the constant chatter up there, and treat ourselves to a mental vacation. I encourage you to breathe, love, and read your way into peace, and–of course–I’ve got plenty of free books to give you, so you don’t even have to spend a dime to do it. 😉

Happy reading!
And don’t forget to breathe ❤

BOD Zombie Crawl 3 and Giveaways!

Click for main event on FB

Howdy, and welcome, those of you who have traveled by way of the Band of Dystopian 3rd Annual Zombie Crawl. I’m super excited to be involved in it this year, because I adore this group, and I’ve also got a very special exclusive sneak peek planned for you hungry travelers.

Make sure to read all the way to the end! There, you’ll find details on how to enter my giveaway, a link to snag a free book from me, and a list of all participating blogs for this year’s zombie crawl.

A lot of you may know me as the author of the YA Dystopian Scifi Treemakers Trilogy. You may also know that I have an obsession with zombies as well as all things end-of-days. Some of you may be waiting patiently (or not so patiently😉 ) for the final installment of said trilogy, which will be available for preorder on Halloween (Yay!).

What you may not know yet is what’s on the horizon for me once this trilogy is complete.

One guess.

If you said zombies, it’s probably because it’s pretty damn obvious. Haha

Of course, this is me we’re talking about, so don’t expect your normal, everyday zombie story.

I’ve been working on a handful of stories over the past two years, a few of which I’ve decided to move up on my runway. The one I’ll publish by next Halloween is titled “Breakout,” and it features a convict named Corey Meyers. I’ll be publishing this one under C.L. Rozelle to differentiate my YA work from my adult. After “Breakout,” I’ll be working on an intense NA zombie story, which I’ll publish under my full name. So, stay tuned for loads of zombie awesomeness from yours truly, beginning next year.

Teaser, followed by excerpt from “Breakout”

breakout-teaser-1excerpt from “Breakout”

When the shouting and gunfire had moved off, I peeked over the counter and out through the window. No one in sight.

I scanned the switchboard until I found the one marked “Emergency Alarm,” and flipped it down. The deafening blast ceased, replaced by the faraway echoes of shouting and weapons firing, the scent of blood and gunpowder in the air. I realized then I was in the middle of a war zone.

“Meyers,” a voice whispered, scaring the shit out of me.

I peered into the shadows where Driggs was slumped against the wall in a dark corner.

I moved to his side. “Driggs, what’s happening?”

“You get it, and . . . a week later, you do this . . . to people.” He cocked his head to show me the crater in his pale neck, its sticky wetness shining black in the pulsating emergency lights.

“Damn, dude . . . like zombies and shit?”

He unstrapped his gun from its holster. “You got kids, right?”

“A daughter, yeah.” The sudden thought of Sarina brought a rush of panic. “Is it . . . out there, too?”

“Take my gun.” He tapped his holster. “Go to her.”

I hesitated for only a moment before I snatched up the gun. “Thanks, man.”

“You bet. I know . . . what you’re in here for, Corey. Losing . . . someone you love . . . can make you do . . . crazy things. Now’s your chance . . . to make up for it. Go find . . . your baby.”

“Thanks. I appreciate you saying that.”

As I held his gaze, something dawned on me: Rousseau. He could still be alive, and trapped, too.

“Driggs, where’s Rousseau?”

“Where . . . you were,” he panted. “A few . . . doors down. There’s a button . . . on the red . . . panel . . .” He moaned again, then gasped.

Again I scanned the switchboard until I found one section in the corner covered by a clear plastic box—rows of black switches protruding from a red panel marked “Emergency Release.” I raised the cover, found the ones for the solitary cells, and flipped them all in one swift motion.

“Hey, man.” Driggs chuckled.

I stopped on my way to the doorway. “Yeah?”

“Happy . . . Halloween.”

For a second I stood there, stunned. Halloween. The day the world had fallen apart and hell had come to Earth. The day I would be getting another chance at life.

I hope you enjoyed that. More to come!
