Sales info:

"This story is fresh and original with elements that are definitely appealing to women readers. There's romance and butt-kicking zombie killing. The ending literally made my jaw drop, and smile in a very naughty kind of way. Let's just say perfume has taken on a special meaning. If I were you, I'd stock up. I'm just saying. My only gripe is that the story isn't longer. I'd love to find out what happens to Zee post-zompocalypse. So will you" -- Jada A. Washington

Sample text:

Suddenly, I couldn’t bear to stay in the bedroom, standing beside his body. I kissed his forehead, tear drops falling onto his face, before retreating into the living room. I pushed redial again.

This time, at last, there was a ringing sound.

“Emergency services,” a voice responded. It was a woman’s voice, sounding strained. “What is the nature of your emergency?”

“My – my boyfriend,” I stammered. “He’s not breathing. I think he’s dead.”

“Was it expected?”


“His death. Was it sudden?”


“Has he been in bad health? Struggling with disease? Elderly?”

 “No, nothing like that.” I’d never called emergency services before but this wasn’t the conversation I’d expected.

“Get out of your house,” the operator said. “If you have a weapon, find it. Be prepared to use it.”

“A weapon? What are you talking about?”

I heard a sound from the bedroom. It was a cough, drier than before and lacking substance. It didn’t sound right.

It didn’t sound human.

The sound was followed by a rustling noise, as if someone was climbing out from under the sheets. I heard the thump of feet, dropping to the bedroom floor.

“Elliot?” I kept my back to the room behind me. I should have been delighted at the thought that my lover was still alive. Instead, a feeling of dread washed over me.

I turned toward the bedroom. In my ear, the operator said, “Run.”
