by Thomas S. Flowers

An Amazon Best Seller in Post-Apocalyptic Fiction…

PLANET OF THE DEAD

Struggling to survive against a sweeping epidemic that has engulfed the planet, survivors will have to make hard choices in a world that no longer makes sense.

“This is an ABC13 Eyewitness News Breaking Report, coming to you from Houston, Texas, I’m Melanie Lawsonâ??”
“â??and I’m Kevin Quinn filling in for Tracy Clemons.”
Camera pans back to Melanie in her usual navy-blue blazer and pearl white blouse. Her hair is normally kept in a curled bob, but in this early afternoon hour, she looks as if she hadn’t any time to comb her hair or even apply makeup.
“We’re coming to you with a Breaking News report. According to Jeff Slovak reporting on scene, Methodist Medical Center in downtown Houston is on the verge of shutting down. Martial Law was announced earlier this morning from Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, and National Guardsmen have been put in place to keep the hospital open and secure.”
Panning to Kevin, his twelve o’clock shadow is looking even more gritty. If asked, he’d have a hard time remembering the last time he shaved or even brushed his teeth. His brown suit looked obviously ruffled as if whatever sleep he’d had was in that suit.
“Reporting live at Houston’s Methodist Medical Center, Jeff Slovak, can you tell us exactly what the situation is at the medical center?”
Live feed coming from downtown Houston, seasoned journalist Jeff Slovak stares unblinking into the camera. Behind him, uniformed officers and National Guardsmen struggle to keep a surge mob from pouring into the hospital. Random people, some crying, others shouting, run by in a blur. The noise is borderline chaotic with sirens blaring and someone yelling into a bullhorn.
Microphone in hand and white knuckled, “Kevin, the situation here at Methodist looks very dire. We’re being told that officials for the City of Houston are diverting patients to CDC and Houston Health Department inoculation stationsâ?¦”
Camera cut out, instantly filling TV screens across Houston with a Google Earth image of the city and the surrounding areas. Red triangles marked in various spot across the map.
Jeff continued, “As you can see, there are dozens of locations people can take those who are sick or injured to receive treatment.”
Shifting to the right, the map of Houston splits the screen with glimpses of Jeff Slovak still squeezing his mic with people rushing behind him and with the newscasters sitting behind their wide podium. Melanie frowned, giving the camera and her audience her best serious pose. “The red triangles on the map, you said officials are saying those are inoculation stations? Have they said what exactly the inoculation is for? What’s causing this epidemic?”
Short pause.
“No comment has been made as to what the inoculation is actually for. The CDC left the hospital just a short while ago and refused to give a statement. Authorities with the Houston Health Department mentioned something about a kind of Super Flu strain, butâ??”
Gun fire rang from somewhere in the mob of people rushing the barricades. Jeff flinched and ducked, as did the cameraman, giving the people watching and those at ABC13 Eyewitness News a jittery image.
“Jeff? Jeff, are those gunshots?” Kevin broke in.
Stuttering, “Yesâ?¦yesâ?¦someone in the crowd isâ??”
More gun reports, like a volley popping off in sporadic unison.
“â??noâ?¦it’s not the crowd, it’s the soldiersâ?¦the National Guardsmen are opening fire into the crowd!”

Memories of Surrender (Midrosian Chronicles Book 1)

by Sophie Kisker

How do you dream of freedom when you can’t remember ever being free?

Lydia has never known freedom, but she knows she’s been lucky. She has a good Master, a good home, and sisters who love her. Yet… something is missing. She longs to know more about the world around her, and the universe she can see from her window at night. But knowledge is for the men, and written in a language she’ll never be allowed to learn. The penalty is too steep, the punishment too harsh.

When an opportunity to find out what she’s been missing falls into her lap, she can’t ignore it. She studies and learns in secret, hoping she’s never found out. And one day, she does something careless that almost reveals her secret, and she pays with a penalty that is severe, and very public. What follows, though, launches her unexpectedly into a world she never imagined she’d ever get to see, and provides her a champion who teaches her to question everything she’s ever taken for granted.

James has been invited to Midros to help his friend solve a decades-old mystery about a drug that’s made on the planet. He stands to make more money than he can imagine, if he succeeds. Finding himself entertaining a beautiful woman for the week is not in his plans. But she quickly becomes so much more. She’s incredibly smart, feisty, and brave. When he learns her secret, he finds he cannot bear the thought of letting her go back to face an uncertain future. And when they stumble on the truth about the deceptions her world has created, they must risk everything – their future, and her life – to right a wrong so great it will change the history of that universe she’s always longed to explore.

This book has themes of dark desires, unequal power exchange, and adult themes. .
