Yep, you read it correctly. Tomorrow (Saturday, May 31st) I will be running in the Portland Rugged Maniac 5K run. 30 grueling obstacles await me and a couple look like they are designed by Torquemada's evil great-great-great-grandson.
I am still very early in my training for the Spartan Run, so this will be a good test of where I am in that regard. I am sure that there will be an abundance of pictures for you to chuckle at if you come back on Monday.
For now, I am thrilled to bang the promotional drum for friend and prolific reviewer, Shana Festa. She is feeling a tingle of a different sort as her debut novel releases under the Permuted Press banner. So pick up a copy and chill out this weekend while I am battling my way to the finish line.
Permuted Press Releases Debut Novel from Shana Festa
TIME OF DEATH: INDUCTION
When no one or nowhere is safe, where do you go to escape the monsters?
In a few short days, 37 year old Emma Rossi’s hard work will finally pay off. She will don her cap and gown and graduate with a degree in nursing, but not before she loses her first patient and is confronted with a new reality. In Cape Coral, Florida, a storm approaches. The dead are coming back to life.
And they’re hungry.
Infection ravages the Eastern Seaboard with alarming speed while attempts to contain the spread of infection fail. Within days, a small pocket of panicked survivors are all that remain of civilization. Fighting to survive the zombie apocalypse alongside her husband Jake and their dog Daphne, Emma comes face-to-face with her worst nightmare.
Relying on snarky wit and sheer determination, she is forced to commit atrocious acts to protect her family and avoid joining the ranks of the undead.
TIME OF DEATH: INDUCTION is Festa’s first book in the Time of Death series. The second book in the series, TIME OF DEATH: ASYLUM is currently in the works.
