Re-Civilize: Liam by Rebecca Besser

Liam earned a full scholarship and escaped the small town of his birth. When his father passes away, he’s sucked back into the life he’d worked so hard to leave behind.

Reluctantly he leaves school and travels home to the farm he grew up on. The farm where working with his hands was worth more than the knowledge he garnered from the books he read to escape reality.

He tries to help his mother settle his father’s estate and plan the funeral despite her emotional guilty trips, but things go horribly wrong in a short span of time. In a last attempt to do something right and ease his guilt, he heads back to school to try and rescue his girlfriend, Stella. But everything has changed in the world beyond the vacant acres he’s been protected by while dealing with his home life.

The world as he knew it has crumbled into something unbelievable. Zombies have taken over and ripped society to shreds…literally. Making it back to Stella becomes impossible.

When he realizes the futility of his journey, he’s forced to a safe zone to preserve his life. Once there, Liam has to make a decision that will change the course of his life forever.

Re-Civilize: Elaine by Rebecca Besser

Elaine is an average teen girl. All she wants is to be noticed by the boy she likes and for her parents to relax enough to let her go on a date with him. She’s tired of her boring life where the most excitement she has is her parents fighting, which she hates.

When the zombie apocalypse wipes out the world as she knows it, she makes her way home, where she has always been overprotected and safe.

This time, home is not the fort of comfort she has always known. Instead it’s a den of danger where she’s bitten by her zombie mother.

Wounded and scared, she manages to hide. Her father comes to her rescue and attempts to get them to a safe zone he heard about on the radio. They run out of gas and end up having to find shelter. They end up in Chad’s house.

Chad tells them how he’s immune to the zombie virus, and that he believes Elaine is too, because she hasn’t turned into a zombie from her bite.

They make plans to travel together to the safe zone once Elaine is strong enough. When Chad goes to find them a new vehicle and supplies, he finds a small boy named Tad.

At the safe zone, Elaine has to deal with being separated from her father and Tad, while being forced to make a decision that will change who she has always been…and her relationship with Chad.

Re-Civilize: Chad by Rebecca Besser

Chad hates everything about life. He hates his sister for being a brat, his parents for being in denial and pretending life is perfect, and the world he lives in for the adherence to social pressures and norms. He wants it all to go away.

When the zombie apocalypse wipes out the world he’s used to, he’s left alone…and bitten. He’s sure he’ll die and become one of the undead. Instead, he becomes severely sick and recovers…still fully human.

Believing he can’t be the only exception, the only one immune to the zpoc virus, Chad goes out into the world to find others like himself. Once he does, he’s sucked into a plan to re-civilize for the good of all the survivors.

Chad and the other exceptions are expected to protect and provide for the weak and vulnerable survivors. He’s not sure he wants to take on the role expected of him in the new society, but he knows that if he refuses the survivors will die.

The fate of the human race weighs heavily on Chad’s young shoulders and he has to make a decision that he can live with in the new, re-civilized world.

Halloween Blitz – Alice in Monsterland

Alice in Monsterland by Mark Taylor

Alice didn’t want to be here. She was too old for it. Too tall. But when the door is answered by a very well dressed young man – in full vampire outfit – she couldn’t stop herself from being drawn in to the house.

A costume party. The perfect way to while away the night while her father got drunk at home.

But for Alice, it quickly became the worst night of her life.

 

Author Mark Taylor:

Mark began writing many years ago. He had a talent for it during his formative years, but didn’t follow through. He went from school into a career, and in his free time did other things.

Now his career path is set and he writes things on occasion.
He worked within the flourishing small press industry at first, submitting to horror anthologies left and right, writing like a madman.

He collaborated with fellow writer Charles Day on pair of interconnected novellas, which eventually became the novel, REDEMPTION.

After that he broke away and while still writes shorter work, concentrates more on the longer. He continues his novella series, WITCHES, and THE DEVIL’S HAND is now complete.

Novels come along at a steady rate, first there was SHUTTER SPEED, then A NIGHT AT THE DREAM THEATER, and then TRINITY.

He has written some original short story collections, THE HUMAN CONDITION and STRANGE, and has compiled a collection of previously released material, SMALL CUTS TO THE PSYCHE. When he wants to smash another genre to see what it’s like he’ll drop a SHORT/CUT.

His writing remains dark most of the time, but of late has found that his longer works err more into dark noir. He plays in a playground of demons and monsters, but plays nicely.
