Teaser Tuesday

Mutated by Joe McKinney

Teaser Tuesday is a bookish meme hosted by MizB of Books and A Beat


Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser: (Warning: Swearing and it’s a bit long for a TT but it had me giggling.)
“No, I reckon not. I imagine you’ve met dead dogs with more brains than you got. It’s true though. Women are idiots. Nate, you ever look at a man? I mean really looked at him? You ever put yourself in a woman’s mind and wondered why she’d ever wanna fuck something that looked like an anemic pink gorilla? Look at a woman. She’s got all those curves, all those beautiful curves. She’s got breasts. She’s got hips that feel like the steering wheel of a brand-new Buick. She looks like a fucking piece of art in blue jeans. Hell, she even smells nice. Then look at a man. He’s all angles and dangling parts. He looks ridiculous. He farts. He scratches his ass. He’ll live like a billy goat if you let him. I tell you, the only real mystery in life is why every woman on this planet isn’t a lesbian.”
Jimmy laughed. He picked at a piece of skin at the corner of his thumbnail and flicked it over the side.

Helluva thing to be discussing during a zombie apocalypse. Heh. But there you have it, my teaser for the week. The “anemic pink gorilla” had me laughing.

25 to 1. Those are the odds of being struck down–and resurrected–by the savage plague that’s sweeping the country, forcing survivors to band together against the dead.

They’re Growing Stronger. . .

Even among the living, there is dissention. A new leader known as the Red Man has risen up and taken charge–and he’s nearly as dangerous as the hungry dead. Some, like Bob Richardson and his friends, strike out on their own. Because if the men with guns don’t get them, the zombies will.

They’re Getting Smarter. . .

Fleeing the cities, Richardson and his crew find sanctuary in an abandoned farm. But their stronghold may not be strong enough. Something strange and terrifying is happening to the undead. They’re banding together. Working as a group. Hungering for a common goal: human flesh. And lots of it.
