Guest Blog and Kindle Touch Giveaway with MM Shelley

Hi Everyone! I’m M.M. Shelley and I’d like to give a BIG thanks to Roxanne, for having me on her blog today so that I can share my novellas:
The Zombie Story & Dead Relatives
They are about Magick and Zombies, a little different take on the Zombie genre and follows the adventures of Orlando as he arrives in a new city.

Ruben Juarez has always been careful; he’s had no choice not to be. Orphaned at a young age it has been just him and Elodie, his younger sister, they avoided the foster system by staying anonymous. It hasn’t been easy and it has made him feel disconnected.

To make money he became involved with underground fighting and he has become quite good at it. He can detect someone’s weak spot just by watching how they carry themselves. Ruben has never boasted about the number of wins he has on his belt or about anything else for that matter. Boxing has always been a way for him to burn off steam, a way to forget about everything and just live in the moment. 

He didn’t begin hunting zombies until he learned that he could make money at it. He was approached by a man named Maxwell who made him a generous offer if he would agree to train Orlando Drake.

It was an odd offer, but the money was good so he didn’t question it. Maybe he should have questioned it and just maybe he should have walked away. If he had not felt a deep responsibility to look out for his sister he just might have walked away.

His dream would be to just ride on his motorcycle from town to town, nowhere in particular--just far away from everyone who knows him. Ruben has never been one to run away from his responsibility but if it wasn’t for Elodie he just might decide to up and leave.

Thanks again to Roxanne for hosting this stop on my tour! You can find me over at my blog; or on twitter @MM_Shelley 

I would also like to let everyone in the Los Angeles area know that on March 31st Mysterious Galaxy bookstore will be hosting an event for the Greater Los Angeles Writers Society, myself and 9 other writers will be there!

The Zombie Story
by MM Shelley

Unfolding on the streets of Los Angeles is a new breed of monster...

Orlando, fresh from the mid west, arrives at his new high school on his Harley Davidson.

All he wants is to make it through the day, and begin his training as a Zombie Hunter.

But someone has different plans for him.

The Zombie Story is the first novella in a young adult series.
Dead Relatives 
Book 2
by MM Shelley

After discovering what was hidden in Mexico and having to sneak back across the border Orlando returns to Los Angeles, but is unable to return to his home.

Instead of hunting Zombies he is now hunted.

Betrayed by those he thought he could trust, Orlando must keep the truth of what he knows to himself.

That is until dead relatives return with dire warnings.

These stories look like a lot of fun, although I have to admit, your first book is the one that sounds like it is most up my alley.

I love magic too (I'm a practicing Witch, among other things), and most of my novels contain it in one way or the other.

Good luck with the new books!

I am all for a new take on the zombie story and you can't go wrong with magic. I think if I had to be a supernatural being it would be a magic user.
