Prepping was his way of life.



Lincoln realizes it’s every man for himself when the big cities are swarming with the military and the law disappears in the tiny town of Dessarillo, Texas, causing chaos to erupt. People Lincoln’s known for years were attacking their friends and family with their minds set on eating them limb by limb. He’d been prepared for this exact moment, waiting for disaster to strike so he could take a front row seat to society’s self destruction.



As an outcast, he learned to rely on no one. Until he unexpectedly finds his life in the hands of his neighbor, Wyatt, the man proving to be trustworthy. Together they try to carve out a safe place while people are turning into flesh eating monsters, decaying from the inside out, and destroying humanity one bite at a time.

Author Interview 2 - 6/27

1. How did you end up with the title of your book?
          
           It came to me in the middle of a hike in the Rocky mountains as I was watching Sasquatch. Okay I lied, the real story is a little more boring. My husband actually came up with it. We made a list of the main things a prepper would need for the zombie apocalypse and then had a word play game trying to top each other. Don't tell anyone he won ðŸ˜‰

2. Are you a pantser or a plotter?

           Definitely a pantser. For all the nubes out there that means I write without pants….I’m kidding....or am I? 🙄 There isn’t an outline I follow, I write down scenes as they come to me and see if I can fit them together like a puzzle. I was never good with rough drafts in school. I'd write the paper first then fill in the blanks on the rough draft later.

3. How would you say your story stands out from the crowd?

          The humor and the cursing, and I'm gonna brag about characters a bit. A lot of zombie apocalypse books have to do with the military, my main character, Lincoln, is a survivalist. His main goal in life is to survive what the world throws at him and he's shunned for it. There’s a power shift to the one person they outcasted.

4. Which three words would you use to describe this book?
     
         Bloody, gorey, fun!

5. Which character are you most like?

         I actually wrote Samuel and Renee after my husband and me. I imagine that's what we’ll be like 20 years from now. As you read through the book they are extremely sarcastic with each other but the devotion and love is obvious in their actions.

6. Do you have any advice for writers trying to get published?

          Don't give up. Understand not everyone will love your book. Build a team of positive people around you. For heaven's sake try not to read your reviews. (Even though I do, I know I should take my own advice. I suggest emergency alcohol.) Pick traditional or self publish and stick with it.
