Our place

A character I don't even know yet, one I've not even begun to create, started yammering away in my head tonight. Here is what she was thinking, typing, or writing to someone:

I’ve been thinking a lot about you lately. Maybe it’s because I’m close to our place this weekend. Maybe it’s because I still hate you. Hopefully it doesn’t mean I’m bored with my boyfriend who’s sitting here, telling me about his favorite book as a kid like he has no idea what or who I’m thinking about. Hopefully it doesn’t mean that I’m not over you.

I'm so excited my friend has a new book coming out!

It's called SHATTERED WORLD by Kate L. Mary and it's her second book in the BROKEN WORLD series.

Stranded in the middle of the Mojave Desert, surrounded by zombies, Vivian and Axl are sure they’re facing the end. The dead are closing in and the shelter they were promised is sealed tight. Just when they think they’ve run out of time, the doors are thrown open. Five years underground with all the provisions there for the taking. It’s almost too good to be true. With the promise of security, Vivian hopes she’ll finally able to deal with the loss of Emily, her growing feelings for Axl, and the terrifying new world they’re facing.

But their sense of security is soon shattered when they discover the shelter isn’t the utopia they thought it would be. It seems the company that built the shelter decided to solve their financial problems by selling off provisions, which means the group has to find a way to get supplies. Or face starvation.

And Vegas is the closest city.

With her feelings for Axl stronger than ever, Vivian volunteers to accompany him and a few others on a trip into one of the biggest tourist cities in the world. Vegas is overrun with the dead, but there are other survivors as well. Only not everyone they meet is a welcome sight. As the emotional baggage piles up, Vivian and Axl’s bond grows stronger, but it doesn’t take long to realize that zombies aren’t the only thing they have to fear.

If you missed the first in the series, the cover and pitch for it are in one of the posts below. Be sure to check to both out, you won't regret it!

Kate L. Mary is a stay-at-home mother of four and an Air Force wife. She spent most of her life in a small town just north of Dayton, Ohio where she and her husband met at the age of twelve. Since their marriage in 2002, they have lived in Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, and California.
Kate enjoys any post-apocalyptic story – especially if zombies are involved – as long as there is a romantic twist to give the story hope. Kate prefers nerdy, non-traditional heroes that can make you laugh to hunky pieces of man-meat, and her love of wine and chocolate is legendary among her friends and family. She currently resides in Oklahoma with her husband and children.
