To be tortured by your own mind (dystopian young adult romantic triangle zombies)

Do you know what it feels like to be tortured by your own mind?

The soft sobs came slowly, then quickly. The dark spaces between the trees echoed with it to my sensitive ears. Though surely they would have heard it by now. My knees hit the dirt as I toppled forward, hands gripping my head. It was the end of the world. And that end was me.
They spoke in a quiet whisper that didn’t come through the sounds of my own tears. Then Linda came through the trees, staggering and weaving a bit lost in the increasing darkness.
“I’m over here, to your left.” The words were strained, squeezed in between the gasps that fit between the aching pains of my heart that poured out my eyes.
She stumbled over and her hand grazed my face, found my hands and pulled them to her lips. She tasted my tears in her kisses. I pulled her in tight, to my chest, not an inch of space between us.
It hurt to have her so close, but it wasn't possible to push her away either. “Why are you doing this?”

Inspiration for My Sweet Infected Zombies and Anime

I see humans, but no humanity

(image from G+)

When our romantic triangle of Porter, Emma, and Linda interact with humans and the zombie-like infected, it's difficult to say who is the monster and who is the human. Stepping back with self-awareness to recognize that there was a new distinction is part of our character's growth.

The feeling of humanity enveloped me, drew me to the surface of my tense stasis. Linda was close. Her heat and warmth filled me. I needed her. I needed that power like grass needed the sun. I wondered if I would ever go back into the light or if darkness was my eternal destiny. -- My Sweet Infected, Chapter 14

First Book Sale of March - Elbrus in Germany

Yes, my first Kindle Book of March, Elbrus Race 2013, in Germany of all places. Imagine that?



It's Elbrus Race 2013, available on Kindle Unlimited and Amazon Prime Kindle Lending Library (Borrow for Free from your Kindle, or you'll be charged, okay?)

It's the story of my adventure to Elbrus in September of 2013 for the Elbrus Race, a sporadically annual (that means it skips a few years here and there due to politics and weather, etc) Skyrunning Race (skyrunning is a sport of fast vertical ascent often including rock, snow, glacier and ice climbing).

I took my friend, protege, and padowan Todd Gilles, a champion figure skater and coach who I helped train for this event. It's a great story of teamwork, bonding, support, mentoring, and friendship. As a bonus, Kilian Jornet makes several appearances, as we were in the same hut at basecamp.
