Surviving The Evacuation, Book 1: London, by Frank Tayell. (Still 0.99?)

"A great addition to the genre! Well written and intelligent, the book avoids many of the pitfalls and cliches of recent zombie fiction (whilst gently mocking those who do not). It is realistic both in its pace and in the situations the lead character finds himself in. in short, this is probably what will actually happen to you if the dead don't stay down." -- Amazon reviewer


Would you survive the evacuation?
 

An Amazon UK Post-Apocalyptic #1 & Amazon.com British Horror #1 (74,000 words)

From the reviews:
“The best zombie novel I've read this year”, “Excellent”, "Brilliant", "Great!", “A cut above the rest”, “Thrilling zombie novel”, “Fantastic read”, “A breath of fresh air”, “Very British take on the Zombie genre”, “Such a good read I want more”.

Synopsis:
The world we know came to an end with a broadcast from a shopping mall in New York. People were attacked, infected and died. Then they came back. No one is safe from the undead.

As nations fell, as anarchy and civil war took grip across the globe, Britain was quarantined. The press were nationalised. Martial law, curfews, rationing, it wasn't enough. An evacuation was planned. Everyone had to leave the inland towns, cities and villages and head to one of the defensive enclaves being established around the coast.

Bill Wright broke his leg on the day of the outbreak. Unable to join the evacuation, he watched from his window as the streets filled with refugees, he watched as the streets emptied once more. He watched as they filled up again, this time with the undead. Then the power went out.

He is trapped. He is alone. He is running out of food and water. He knows that to reach the safety of the enclaves he will have to venture out into the wasteland that once was England. On that journey he will ultimately discover the horrific truth about the outbreak, and a decades old conspiracy.

This is the first volume of his journal. The story continues in Book 2: Wasteland, Book 3: Family (out now), Undead Britain (in the charity anthology 'At Hell's Gate') & Book 4: Unsafe Haven (out soon).

The Keeper, by R. L. Mosz. (Still 0.99?)

Save $2 today with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"This is an engaging story about our misconceptions about social position, medicine, and love, and the choices we must make. There's a colorful cast of characters, from the elite to the scruffy. Caitlin is an unusual young woman, quiet and humble, yet strong and determined when she encounters the world of modern medicine and the privileged class. Her simple life becomes complicated after she meets wealthy, successful surgeon Dr. Seacrest, who lives in the fast lane but must slow down to confront his past. I enjoyed this straightforward book about contemporary and age-old problems." -- Amazon reviewer

The Keeper is a thought-provoking contemporary drama that explores the mysterious power of friendship and love. The atypical romance within this PG-rated novel weaves its way through a psychological story of human relationships and social satire.

The protagonist, Dr. Christopher Seacrest, is chief of staff in a renowned medical facility and is one of the world's shining stars. Immersed in his self-sufficiency and false ideals of perfection, he lives immune to the fact that he has somehow disavowed life itself. A brief patient-doctor meeting in an exam room between the arrogant Chris and the unpretentious Caitlin Rosenberry soon changes all of that.

Initially the powerhouse surgeon finds little of interest to him in the young, post-stroke patient, but their meeting results in the physician's perfect fa├žade developing a hairline crack. Fate brings the unlikely pair together again and again, and sets a series of cataclysmic events into motion from which there is no turning back. When Dr. Seacrest finds himself in love with Caitlin and she vows never to see him again, he can no longer deny life's invitation to his own healing.
