– April Fool’s excerpt –
“We gotta do what we gotta do, Elliot.” A frown briefly appeared on Adam’s face. “If we like it or not. We can’t keep living like this, waiting around for rescue that isn’t gonna come.”
“Exactly.” Elliot nodded. “Deep down you knew rescue wasn’t coming, huh?”
Adam shrugged. “I don’t know what I was thinking. Maybe I was hoping more than actually thinking. Wishful thinking.”
A row of cars blocked the road ahead of them, Adam moved onward and squeezed between two of the cars, pushing one of the doors closed as he shimmied through. As soon as he rested his hand on the door a grotesque zombie quickly reached through the broken window and grabbed Adam’s hand, tearing through the flesh with its jagged and rotting teeth. Then out of the sky flew vampires cloaked in black capes and a werewolf or two howled in the distance. Hell had arrived in Phoenix. Where was the love?
“Nooooooo!” Elliot fell to his knees. “Why have you forsaken me!”
“April fool’s!” Leslie Lee Sanders shouted through shocked laughter and a few unspoken “What the F***s” from the reader. “Gotcha!”
