Coming Soon – Kate Mary

Feature FridayThis month’s final Featured Author post gives you a peek into what is coming soon from Kate Mary! So Kate, what are you going to make us wait for?

I’m so excited about the release of my New Adult post-apocalyptic zombie novel, Broken World.
I know zombies are an acquired taste, but even my friends who don’t really care for zombies love these books (yes, it is a series). The story focuses on relationships and survival, and how people change and adapt in the face of a crisis. That’s the part of stories like this that I really love.
Unlike most zombie tales, my novel starts before the dead come back. Whenever I watch or read a zombie story I find myself wondering how everyone dealt with the world as it began to change, and most stories gloss over that part. In book one, the zombies don’t even show up until sometime in the middle of the book.
You can read the first chapter on my website and even follow the link to the playlist.


22458146When a deadly virus sweeps the country, Vivian Thomas sets out for California in hopes of seeing the daughter she gave up for adoption. Then her car breaks down and she’s faced with a choice. Give up, or accept a ride from redneck brothers, Angus and Axl. Vivian knows the offer has more to do with her double D’s than kindness, but she’s prepared to do whatever it takes to reach her daughter.

The virus is spreading, and by t

he time the group makes it to California,most of the population has been wiped out. When the dead start coming back, Vivian and the others realize that no electricity or running water are the least of their concerns. Now Vivian has to figure out how to be a mother under the most frightening circumstances, cope with Angus’s aggressive mood swings, and sort out her growing attraction to his brooding younger brother, Axl.

While searching for a safe place they pick up a pompous billionaire who may be the answer to all their problems. Trusting him means going into the middle of the Mojave Desert and possibly risking their lives, but with the streets overrun and nowhere else to turn, it seems he might be their only chance for survival.
