Z-Risen 3: Poisoned Earth – SSDD Part One

An excerpt from Z-Risen 3: Poisoned Earth

In the event this log is found with my corpse, I’m Machinist Mate First Class Jackson Creed and it’s been almost two weeks since we arrived in San Diego following the event. With me is Marine Sergeant Joel “Cruze” Kelly.

We were both stationed on the USS McClusky, an Oliver Hazard Perry-class frigate out of San Diego. Our ship was overrun by the dead and we barely escaped with our lives. Now we live in the middle of Undead Central.

The Z hit me like a ton of bricks. Continue reading…

Z-RISEN: OUTCASTS has been released

I’m happy to say that Z-RISEN 2: OUTCASTS has been released.

“When the USS McClusky, a US Naval frigate out of San Diego, ran aground, it was only the beginning for Machinist Mate Jackson Creed and Marine Sergeant Joel “Cruze” Kelly. The unlikely duo battled for survival as they established a base of operations and fought to retain their “fortress.”  Continue reading…

Beer Run Part Two

Beer Run – Part 2

18:45 hours approximate
Location: Undead Central, San Diego, CA

We exited the block and ran into the parking lot of an apartment complex. Joel and I had dodged behind cars and concrete dividers at every opportunity. Our sprint had carried us nearly a hundred and fifty yards away from the dumpster and I, for one, had begun to feel it.

I panted, hunched next to a car; Joel did the same. He swept his ball cap off his black head and wiped sweat from his brow with his sleeve. San Diego might be a comfortable seventy degrees but running for your life has a tendency to make you sweat like a pig.

I pointed at my orange wristband and he gave me the finger. While we took a breather, I ejected the magazine from the M45 and filled the five rounds I’d emptied into Z’s. Joel took a moment to do the same with his AR. We waited and looked toward the area we’d just left, only to find that luck was on our side and we’d avoided a larger confrontation. Continue reading…

Beer Run Part Three

19:05 hours approximate
Location: Undead Central, San Diego, CA

We hit the landing and tore to the right. I gripped Joel’s shoulder while he moved (once again) in a crouch. I drew my M45 and switched it to my dominant right hand. On the grass, an army of the dead had congregated. Joel leaned over the railing, aimed…and fired at a car of all things. What the hell? He’d picked a high-end BMW; when the bullets punched into the hood, they set off an alarm.

“Jesus fucking Christ!” I cried.

The dead turned toward the sound and I realized Joel was smarter than he looked. Give a Marine a gun and they suddenly turn into a fucking brain surgeon.

“Let’s go.” Continue reading…

Z-Risen has been released

Z-Risen: Outbreak has occupied every moment of spare time over the last month. I was going to wait a week to release it but changed my mind. We’re coming up on the shopping season with Black Friday, and all. So I thought I’d make it easy on people to get a fun zombie read in for only a buck.

For the first week of release, Z-Risen: Outbreak will be .99.

Enjoy! And if you like the book, consider dropping a review on Amazon. That way I will get motivated to finish Z-Risen: Outcasts. ;)

Thank you all for the comments on the site and on Facebook. Writing Z-Risen and giving it away for free is a complete blast. Normally I write a book for a publisher and have a  deadline but Z-Risen is a labor of love so I can write chapters and post them at my leisure. Of course, if you want to buy one of my books it would put a smile on my face as well as my publishers but it’s not a requirement to keep reading this story.
