Book Description:
Two worlds…one glass wall…no turning back.
The human race has been divided. The chosen few live in the safety of the domes, watching through their glass walls as those left on the outside suffer and die. But desperation has brought invention, and new drugs have given the outsiders the strength to roam the poisoned night unafraid – but it comes at a price.
Seventeen-year-old Nola Kent has spent her life in the domes, being trained to protect her little piece of the world that has been chosen to survive. The mission of the domes is to preserve the human race, not to help the sick and starving. But when outsider Kieran Wynne begs for Nola’s help in saving an innocent life, she is drawn into a world of darkness and danger. The suffering on the other side of the glass is beyond anything Nola had imagined, and turning her back on the outside world to return to the safety of the domes may be more than she can stand. Even when her home is threatened by the very people Nola wants to help.

About the Book:
 
Karma’s a bitch…and her name’s Cassie. 
 
Working for Karma Incorporated might sound like the best job in the world, but there’s one really big catch: you’ve got to die to get it. Cassandra Mercier died at the ripe old age of twenty-one and is now gainfully employed by the Afterlife Corporation as a Karma operative. Her job duties include manifesting bad karma on unsuspecting victims. 
 
Two months into her internship Cassie is promoted and given her first solo case. His name is Bishop and he is a cheat.  He needs some bad karma, and Cassie’s the right girl for the job.
 
Inflicting a bit of payback on this cheat should be easy for Cassie, so she gets permission from her boss to do a little investigating on her own time. Investigating into her living life, the one she can’t seem to remember. The only problem, she is forbidden from doing the digging herself. Afterlife Corporation rule. She can hire someone to look into it for her, though, and that someone turns out to be Drake Greco. She regrets her decision the moment she walks into his office…

Release Day Blitz Remedy by Anna Abner

Excerpt:

Roman Duran ran a step behind Jared and saw the moment the other man faltered on his

wounded leg, careening into a chain link fence. Without missing a step, he ducked under Jared’s

arm and forced him forward. The pack of infecteds was only two or, at the most, three blocks

behind.

“Here,” Pollard Datsik, the third member of their trio, hissed, slipping around a block

wall and sprinting up a set of exterior stairs to an apartment above a liquor store. Roman dragged

Jared behind him.

While Roman helped Jared to a sagging sofa, Pollard shut the door with a quiet click and

peered through the window, his breath a puff in the silence.

“Are they following?” Roman whispered. “Are they swarming the stairs?”

Pollard stretched his neck to see further, and then soft-stepped to the next window and

stared at the street below.

“I’m fine,” Jared murmured unnecessarily. “I tripped. It won’t happen again.” He shoved

Roman away. “I just need a couple minutes.”

Roman didn’t buy it. The injury in question was a jagged slash above Jared’s knee he’d

earned climbing a fence the night before. Though they’d stopped running long enough to wrap it,

Jared wasn’t as energetic as he’d been before the wound.

Separating from Jared, Roman peered through a broken windowpane, blinking away the

exhaustion that had dogged him for the past couple of days. Without enjoyment, he chewed one

of their last handfuls of goldfish crackers, the food dry and pasty in his mouth. Water was about

to become a serious issue.

“I’m so thirsty,” he complained in a whisper. “And dirty.” What he wouldn’t do for a

clean, clear stream of fresh water.

Roman glanced at his companions, noting their equally stained and stinking uniforms.

Maybe volunteering to leave Washington, DC had been a crappy decision all around. Maybe the

veep should have sent older, more experienced survivors on her search and rescue mission.

Maybe his eighteen years on the earth weren’t enough for this kind of mission.

A pack of infecteds had caught their scent in Raleigh and hadn’t let go. Forty-eight hours

without sleep or rest. Two days of running, of hiding, of trying to lose the predators. And now,

they were out of food and water.

“What if we climb on the roof?” Roman whispered. “We could wait them out.”

Pollard took the bag of crackers from him and crammed a handful into his mouth.

“We’re out of water,” Jared reminded them. “What if they trap us for days? No.” He

shook his head at the room’s closed door. “We could end up a lot worse than we are now. I say

we keep running.”

“Forever?” Pollard scoffed. “There has to be a point where we say we can’t continue like

this. A point where we circle around the pack and head home.”

Roman wouldn’t call Washington, DC home. But then he’d never called anywhere home.

An orphan kicked into the system after his mother abandoned him, none of the dozen foster and

group homes he’d lived in had ever been his home. And DC was no different. It was a way

station to somewhere else, no matter whether he had an apartment or a job or a purpose. It still

wasn’t home.

Roman had yet to find his real home.

Swallowing dry crackers, Roman double-checked the number of rounds for his M-16.

When they’d left the safety of DC’s walls, they each carried forty rounds for their personal

firearms. It had sounded like a lot at the time, but he was down to nineteen rounds. The other two

men had less.

For an entire day, Jared had fired warning shots at their pursuers—a mistake, Roman

realized now—but the only result had been bringing even more infecteds into the pack, as nearby

stragglers were attracted by the noise.

His ears perking up, Roman rushed to the far window and scanned for movement. Was he

crazy, or did he hear a car engine?

Roman had left DC wanting to help people, both infecteds and survivors. After running

into people, one worse than the last, his companions were nearly to the point of abandoning the

mission. But Roman hadn’t given up. Even though they hadn’t helped a single person.

Between two rooftops, he caught a glimpse of a fast-moving white Range Rover driving

in a westerly direction. A part of him wanted to catch up to the driver, but another part of him, a

starving and sleep deprived part, wanted the vehicle to pass them by and disappear.

The sound of the Range Rover’s engine quieted as it drove out of sight.

“Let’s try the distraction method again,” Roman suggested. The last time they’d thrown

empty cans near the zombies, they’d been curious enough for Roman and the other two men to

escape. “It worked before.”

Their rescue mission to Myrtle Beach could still be salvaged once they shook this pack.

Unhindered by the starving horde of infecteds, the three men could scavenge for food and water,

sleep safely in shifts, and cover ground at an easy pace. This running for their lives, though,

couldn’t go on forever. Without water and more substantial food than goldfish crackers, he

wasn’t going to survive much longer.

“I’ll open fire,” Pollard said, as if Roman hadn’t spoken, “and you two run for the cell

tower at the end of the street. I’ll meet you there.”

“Good plan,” Jared said, “except you’re a horrible shot. I’ll do the shooting, thanks.” He

stood, trying to hide a wince of pain and failing.

Pollard clenched his jaw at the insult. “Fine.” He grabbed Roman by the sleeve and

dragged him toward the door.

“You sure about this?” Roman asked, still thinking his idea would work better than

wasting more bullets and hoping to find each other under a tower.

“Just run fast,” Pollard said.
