HOW CAN YOU FIGHT A WAR WHEN THE DEAD DON’T STAY DEAD AND THE LIVING ARE JUST MEAT?

I loved so much about this book, I don’t even know where to start .A non-stop, edge-of-your-seat, must-read-just-one-more-chapter, relentless pace.”  

Linda Poitevin, Author of The Grigori Legacy Series

Breakout. Escape the city. Stay alive.

 

Sixteen-year-old David Simmons is on a mission to save his eight-year-old sister. In a smoldering world infested with walking cadavers, the survivors of Simmons infantry reserve unit are going hatches down in a pair of armoured personnel carriers and everyone knows that it’s only a matter of time until their fuel runs dry. 

There’s a weak short wave radio signal from a place called Sanctuary Base and it’s supposed to be zombie-free. But there’s more than a thousand miles  to cover, a biting, unforgiving cold, armed survivalists, legions of the living dead and someone called SUNRAY. 

They’re outgunned, outnumbered and out of time.

This tense thriller for teens offers a terrifying vision of survival in a post-apocalyptic world where the bonds of friendship and family are the only things left that are worth fighting for

From Rebel Light Publishing:

Cat Thief Twitter
 

“From start to eminently satisfying climax, To Catch a Cat Thief is a rollicking comedy adventure positively sparkling with eccentric characters, quick-as-a-cat plotting and the author’s keenly tuned ear for pitch-perfect teen-speak. Highly recommended!” Christian Schoon, author of Zenn Scarlett. 

THE. CATS. ARE. MISSING!

Fear not! Penelope Ann Pickersgill and her grandmother are on the case … assuming that Grandma Bev can coax Penelope out of the spare bedroom and into her psychedelic minivan.

Did I mention that Penelope’s granny is from the 1960’s?

Sure there’s macrobiotic food, and yes, the soundtrack from Woodstock is playing on Grandma Bev’s CD player. Yep, the house smells like incense & the Groovy Gals (a trio of hippy seniors with a penchant for civil disobedience) want to bring down City Hall. But … there are strange lights in the sky. Grandma Bev is certain there’s a UFO cat-abduction conspiracy afoot. Penelope, being the sensible one, thinks all the evidence points to a faceless corporation that produces GMO’s and one very angry farmer. If only she can convince her granny.

WON’T SOMEONE THINK OF THE CATS? – ORDER TODAY!

 

MEET VALERIE STEVENS. SHE KICKS EVIL’S ASS.

 

buy1._V192207739_

“I fell into this job quite by accident, when I discovered that I possessed the ability to see the preternatural world. There are a handful of people with similar abilities, and part of my job is to locate them, since Government Services and Infrastructure Canada likes to keep track of these things. Don’t ask me why.”

There’s a malevolent force in town, and it’s quite literally Valerie Stevens’ job to determine who’s behind it and why they want to destroy the city of Calgary. She’ll have help, in the form of her best friend (now more or less a zombie, unfortunately), a powerful dwarf troll, and the ghost of former Prime Minister ( he goes by ‘Bill’ these days). But that’s not all – Valerie has some tricks up her sleeve and, she hopes, luck on her side. Oh, and her boyfriend, Dave. He drives a dump truck.

Praise for Shade Fright

“Funny, action-packed and takes no prisoners. An urban fantasy thriller with a terrific cast of supernatural characters. Move over Chicago, Calgary’s Valerie Stevens is Canada’s answer to Harry Dresden!” SciFiGuy.ca

“SHADE FRIGHT grabs you from page one and doesn’t let go until you’ve read the final sentence.”

Nancy Holzner, author of  the Deadtown series.

 

SUPERHERO – URBAN FANTASY FUSION!


buy1._V192207739_
Someone is murdering the good people of Greenfield, and there’s talk of a serial killer on the loose. Finding him should be an easy job for a guy with super-powers; too bad he keeps falling out of the sky. If Marshall Conrad has any hope of ending the killing spree, he’ll need a little help from a morbidly obese shop keeper (who just happens to be a witch) and a hard-drinking senior citizen with a penchant for lifting heavy objects… like auto- mobiles. Corrupt cops, ogres, thirty-six-year-old Siamese cats, and of course, the netherworld. All in a day’s work when you’re trying to save your city from a simmering evil that’s about to be unleashed.

Praise for Marshall Conrad!

“Dark magic is rife in this world-on-the-edge urban fantasy. Sean Cummings’ great humor and awesome vision weave a thrill ride of a story.” Erin Kellison, author of Shadow Bound

‘Unseen World does for superheroes what Charlaine Harris does for vampires. The book’s reluctant hero, Marshall Conrad, puts the everyman into Superman in this spandex-free Urban Fantasy. A mighty read!’ Wayne Simmons, bestselling author of FLU

“End-of-the-world seriousness combined with a healthy dose of humor,” Bitten by Books

“Cummings has packed a lot into these pages, and every single one of them flies past at the speed of a reluctant superhero.” Genre Reviews

 

MY POLTERGEEKS SERIES

(There are still a few lingering copies online after the demise of Angry Robot Books imprint Strange Chemistry Books. I’m contemplating self-publishing the pair and finishing the series with a book entitled END GAMES.)

Funeral Pallor (Valerie Stevens book two)

 

There’s a nest of rotting husks in an old Calgary warehouse and they’ve got a hankering for human flesh, but that’s the least of Valerie Stevens’ problems. While necromancers are a dime a dozen, these mindless killing machines all share one thing in common: they’re former occupants of every funeral home in the city.

The evidence points to the zombie Caroline, especially now that she’s been experiencing short term memory loss and an inability to account for her whereabouts. If Valerie plans to clear her best friend’s name, she’ll have to move fast: someone has dispatched a zombie assassin and Caroline’s only hope may rest with a pair of middle-aged head-bangers with a few secrets of their own.
