31 Days of Zombies
October 22, 2016
by Scott McGlasson
Ten years After civilization collapsed, a walled city is the only world Stace Tomlinson has ever known. Undead ferals and living marauders still prowl the wilderness outside, but the people of Shawnee Lodge have adapted as best they can. With ammunition, electronics, and petrol all distant memories from Before, people have once again taken up the bow. When almost all the horses and cattle were slaughtered, they learnt how to turn ferals into dociles, pulling their ploughs and wagons, turning the wheels of their mills.
It’s a simple life of crops and crafts, but Stace doesn’t want to end up stuck on a farm. She wants to follow in her father’s footsteps, outside the walls. Rob Tomlinson is a Ranger – one of the best, a master of fieldcraft and feral hunting – and living in the shadow of such a fearsome, well-respected figure comes with its own problems. The pressure Stace feels to match up to her father’s expectations can be unbearable. Sometimes, though, life has a habit of showing you one path, then leading you down another.
Stace has struggled to prove to her father that she’s up to the job. Today, though, she’s going to have to step up. Both of their lives depend on it.

My second Zombie Apocalypse Romance Novella is ready for you to devour!
Fighting for a Future
Kyra knows she’s screwed. Trapped in a school while zombies stumble around outside just waiting for the survivors cowering in the building to come out to play, she has no hope of getting out alive. She’s not the only one, either, and sexy fellow survivor Riley seems hell bent on making their last few hours alive memorable ones.
But in a twist of fate neither one could have seen coming, Kyra and Riley realize that they might not be facing the end after all. Even more, they’re hit with the realization that what had started as a distraction might just turn out to be the best thing to ever happen to them. Assuming they can find somewhere safe.
Last week I had a day where I wanted to relax my brain and read someone else’s book. I like a good romance when I’m tired and want to give my brain a rest, but I lose interest quickly when they take place in contemporary settings, so I pulled up Amazon and dutifully searched for a romance that took place during or after an apocalypse. I was able to find a handful, although not many, but I started and abandoned three (within the first chapter) before finally finding one that was well written. This isn’t a post about how important editing, critique partners, and beta readers are, although they’re VERY important, this is about me wanting to find an apocalyptic romance that I can read without having to use my brain. The problem? There just aren’t a lot out there. It occurred to me that I can’t be the only one who likes to read them – I get comments all the time from readers who mention that they love a dystopian/post-apocalyptic novel that has a good romance – so there should be more of these books available to readers. Which brings me to my announcement.
I’ve decided to start a new project with no end in sight:
Apocalyptic Romance Novellas
Novellas are easy for me to write because they’re short and the plot is usually pretty concise, and if I set them in the Broken World universe (Yay!) then I’ve already done all the world-building work. I won’t have any specific release dates, I’ll just write them as I have time and when they’re done I’ll put them out. (So keep your eyes open.)
The good news: I already have one done, and another almost finished, and you can get MORE THAN SURVIVAL now on Kindle and Kindle Unlimited!
Lucy was just nine years old when a deadly virus swept the country, killing most of the population and turning them into zombies. For the past eleven years she’s lived in seclusion with her Uncle Seamus, a prepper who was more than ready for the end of the world.
But all of Lucy’s skills are put to the test when Seamus disappears, leaving her to face the harsh winter on her own.
Sawyer went into the mountains to escape his past, and when stumbles upon Lucy in the middle of a blizzard, he doesn’t think he’s ready for the responsibility having another person in his life will bring.
Only, Lucy isn’t as helpless as she first appeared, and as they brave the long winter together, Sawyer will soon come to learn that even at the end of the world, there’s more to life than just survival.
In case you’re wondering, the apocalyptic romance I finally settled on was Afterglow by Maria Monroe, and it was great. (Fair warning: It has a good amount of “steamy” scenes and is recommended for audiences 18+, so if you’re not looking for a sexy romance, this isn’t the book for you.)
Surprise! Book Seven in the Broken World series is available!
When Jim ran out of that farmhouse in Forgotten World, not only did he leave the promise of safety behind, but he was sure he was about to meet a horrible end.
Amira has lived most of her life surrounded by silence, and this new world has dangers lurking around every corner that could mean the end for her.
When two survivors, never meant to meet, find each other in the middle of an apocalypse, it will mean the difference between life and death. With silence as their constant companion, and the threat of death always hanging over their heads, Jim and Amira will learn not only what it means to trust another person, but how to let go of the past so they can survive this new world of violence.
Yes, you read that right!
I’m working on yet another book in the Broken World series, this one will fill readers in on what happened to Jim after he got separated from the group in Forgotten World.
Heading your way soon! (Date TBD)
