Where people gather, danger awaits. Where there is humanity, there is unrest. These two ideas meet at Unrestival. The Middletown series continues rolling through American culture. This time around the apocalyptic series stops at a New York festival dedicated to purging the unrest of humankind. Find out what happens when eleven of the brightest authors in the zombie genre are tasked with writing the same story. That is the heart of the Middletown series, and this time around it takes on a decidedly anti-establishment flare. Celebrate the purging of your own unrest with the zombie genre party people: Brent Abell, Rebecca Besser, Chuck Buda, Frank J. Edler, Tim Meyer, Lucas Milliron, John Quick, Armand Rosamilia, Heath Stallcup, Jay Wilburn, and Jack Wallen.
Jack Wallen, Jay Wilburn, Armand Rosamilia, Rebecca Besser, Brent Abell, Chuck Buda, Eric Shelman, G.G. Silverman, Heath Stallcup, Jaime Johnessee, Peter Welmernik, and Suzanne Madron
What happens when a metal band gets caught up in the apocalypse? Even better, what happens when you give that same scenario to twelve of the genre’s hottest authors? Rosamilia, Besser, Abell, Buda, Shelman, Silverman, Stallcup, Wallen, Johnesee, Wilburn, Welmerink, Madron … each author was put to the task to take the apocalyptic story up to eleven.
1. 12. 11. Do the math. It all works out to rock and roll; zombie style.

Survivalists, preppers, people who have prepared to ensure their safety and continued existence in the event of a catastrophic disaster. But what happens when the SHTF? Really? The population will be divided by the have and have nots- those who were ready and prepared and those who are caught unaware and panicked. The struggle for available resources will be another catastrophic event in and of itself as humans fight to either defend and retain what they have established or to take what others had the foresight to store and prepare.
This is the end as we know it. For some, life and death hinges on acquiring basic human needs, while for others life is good, if not better in accordance with their due diligence.
The Zombie Apocalypse has arrived. Will it be feast or famine?

Twisted Pathways of Murder & Death
When emotions go to extremes murder happens.
Sometimes it’s because of betrayal.
Sometimes it’s in revenge.
Sometimes it’s to hide a lie or in self-defense.
Sometimes it’s to feed a secret hunger.
Whatever the reason, the human mind lends itself to twisted pathways that lead to murder and death…

Welcome to Rock Creek, New York.
A one-stoplight town in the middle of nowhere, on the way to nowhere.
A town ruled by quiet, country boredom.
The locals have another name for it:
But not for the reason you think.
Rock Creek has a deadly secret. It’s a place where nothing is as it seems. Where killers walk amongst the townsfolk.
Where monsters are real.
Where old houses serve as something more than gateways to sprawling farm land.
It’s evil’s hometown.
So be prepared to stay.
You’re going to be a permanent resident.
Because even if you get out, you can never escape.

Re-Civilize: Liam by Rebecca Besser is free for Kindle from October 5th-7th!
Zpoc Exception Series: Book 3
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.
