Love Lies Bleeding free — today & tomorrow — via amazon #kindle
My novella, Love Lies Bleeding, can be downloaded for free today and tomorrow (Sept 29 & 30) via your Kindle reader or app. This is the first time I have offered any of my books for free, so it will be interesting to see how the free days go. If you do grab it for free over the next two days, I would love to hear what you think of it … the novella in itself is a bit of an experiment for me, as it is the first time I have attempted to translate one of the my screenplays into narrative form.
Synopsis: Pamela just wants to reunite in the afterlife with her dead fiancé, Grady. Problem is, Grady was a secret agent, and his coded emails have infuriated both his employers and his enemies. They need Pamela alive. So, instead of her planned suicide, she is kidnapped by black ops agents, tortured by mobster warlords, hunted by a psychotic killer, and chased by zombies … all necessary evils in order to ultimately walk into the sunset with her true love.
WARNING: Love Lies Bleeding is a darkly comedic, bloody romance about love conquering all, even death. This is NOT a young adult novel. It contains graphic violence, nasty language, and more than a little bit of flesh eating. There are no soft kisses, soulful stares, or moonlit rainstorms.
The novella is approximately 28,000 words, and currently followed by a twelve-chapter excerpt from the novel, After The Virus.

I hope you enjoy the free read!!
