Would you survive a zombiepocalypse? Heck yeah!

It’s Valentine’s Day and I’m writing about zombies. Not a typical romantic hero/ine for a romance novel, but hey, love comes in all guises. Warm Bodies was just released in the theaters across the country. A LOVE story between a zombie and a human. I read it’s a cute love story and not at all ghoulish, but come on, the hero eats the heroine’s boyfriend’s brains?!! Oh, teenage angst. Her boyfriend must have been a jerk! LOL

I don’t know much about zombies and haven’t been following the craze. I’m just not into dead lovers that decay and rot…but, hey, love hurts. It’s not to say that I never thought about writing about zombies. At one point, I must have, because I found an old notebook of mine with research notes about zombies.
Here are my scratchy notes on how to create a zombie (Don’t try this at home!):
The bokor (dark sorcerer) saddles his horse and rides backwards. Then he sucks the person’s soul from a slit in the door and traps it in a cork bottle. The person dies and the bokor opens the grave and calls the person’s name while passing the bottle under the nose.
Presto — now the bokor has a zombie to play with and use for his devious purposes!
Would I survive a zombiepocalypse?
Hell, yeah. I sure would because I researched that too! It’s EASY…just be sure you have a lot of salt on hand. Why? Because a taste of salt and the zombie becomes aware of their fate and returns to their grave!
Happy Reading and Happy Valentine’s Day!

Thou shall not kill.
For archangel Razi-el, he had no choice. He would break God’s commandment again if it were to save Uri-el from a demon’s talons. Yet even God’s most trusted archangel cannot avoid punishment. No longer Razi-el, he is now Izar, a Protector sworn to kill for the angels.
When a Protector kills an angel, Izar is summoned to work alongside Uri-el to capture the killer. Izar is shocked when his bloodlust spikes hot for the archangel. He knows better than to go after forbidden fruit. Refusing to give in to temptation, he ignores his body’s tempestuous arousal for Uri-el until a heated argument turns his blood into molten lust.
As they rush to find the killer, their passion plays into the demon’s plan. Izar will have to make a choice between life and death if he is to save Uri-el again. Buy link
