Okay, here we go – above are the two genius minds behind a new horror anthology that will satisfy the most die hard fans ~ The Last Letter.
I shall begin with some gathered info on this gem from a pair of indie wonders!
A few words on this wondrous horror anthology:
“Really cool concept. I think the zombie sub-genre of horror is a somewhat saturated at this point…having a really clever way of telling the story…already makes it fresh in my mind.”
-D C Wight-Hammer, author of the Between Two Minds series
With the publication of her horror anthology, Blood Drops, WB Welch brought a fresh voice to the horror community, exploring the psychological side of what scares us while showing us how far some are willing to go. Now, WB Welch has teamed up with co-author Tory Hunter to create The Last Letter, a zombie story that will break your heart as it tears out your insides.
The power has been out for a month, the roads are clogged with abandoned vehicles, and the dead roam the streets. In a quiet suburb on the outskirts of an unnamed city, the only survivors of this apocalyptic nightmare hide out in their homes with plywood on their windows and furniture blocking their doors.
For weeks, a young waitress named Laura is stuck in her attic and running out of food while the dead pile into her house, drawn to her scent. Down the street, her friend Morrigan, a firefighter before the world ended, has barricaded herself in her two-story home with her dog, unaware Laura is still alive.
When a neighbor named Jacob begins making supply runs and delivering them to the survivors on his street, he rescues Laura, secures her house, and offers to carry a letter to Morrigan. Thus begins a correspondence between friends and, together, they discover the dead might be the least of their worries.
THE LAST LETTER is a zombie story for people who don’t read zombie stories. Tense, emotional, and gritty, this series of letters explores how fast the dark side of human nature emerges when society collapses.
The co-author experience was a new one for both Tory and WB, but they note that it worked quite seamlessly on this project. They had a vision for how they wanted the story to go. Not a tense structure, but they seemed to know how they wanted the book to make people feel. The letter format allowed for a natural evolution of the story.
“It reminded me of my childhood, when having pen pals was a real thing. It made me nostalgic, waiting to receive my next letter from my friend, even though I knew I was watching this tense story evolve.” -WB Welch
“It made for a more interactive experience than the typical method of writing a narrative. Through the action of writing and trading letters with WB, I was able to immerse myself into this world and really feel Laura’s fear and anxiety.” -Tory Hunter
Some more from the authors/editors/publishers ~
Above is the link for the kindle edition. I shall endeavour to get the one for the paperback edition A.S.A.P
A zombie story that will break your heart as it tears out your insides.
In a zombie apocalypse, two friends try to come together, but the deads aren’t the only ones keeping them apart.
Don’t bite the hand that feeds you. It might bite back.
If you think your neighbors are crazy now, wait until the zombie apocalypse hits.
With the dead roaming the streets, two friends trapped in separate houses must rely on a post-apocalyptic postman to communicate.
To me, this one sounds a winner for the horror enthusiast. Look for the pre – order/order notice on Amazon.com and reserve/order your copy today!
Now, on to some minor news from yours truly …
Progress is coming along nicely. Even on my dragon story progress, though I haven’t heard from the kind lady I want to work with *SIGH *.
