Double excitement today as I release two books!
Smooth is one of my favorites and came about when I was listening to the great song by the same name by Carlos Santana and Rob Thomas. I was wondering to myself what people would be like if they truly went smooth, with no emotions. Of course, before any can be emotionless, they have to attack a town and blood must flow; innocents must be chased and chewed on. The photo for the book cover is one I particularly love. I saw it on a FB post that a friend had. The way Kev is standing and the background made me feel so hopeless and alone when I saw it. The pup is on a long leash and that spoke to me as well. There is a bond, but it's set at a distance. I was so thrilled that Kev and Myke gave me permission to use the photo for what has become one of my favorite book covers of all time.
Beside the still water...the zombies roam.
A slightly different take on the zombie genre, Smooth asks if the world be better if we were all neutral and complacent (without violence, greed, hatred, and yes, love and compassion) as parts of our personalities? The road to absolute peace is filled with more than just bumps and gravel when catt dahman tells it; heads will roll...literally. The town of Cold Springs is about to receive the gift of full serenity and some people intend to fight it (as well as the zombies) all the way to the end!
Rain is turning ordinary citizens of the small town into crazed killers and then wiping out their entire personalities. The survivors must avoid the rain, fight the zombish creatures, stay away from the flood waters, and somehow work together as the rising water not only isolates them but also takes their supplies. Can anyone survive? Will they all go smooth?
