Kellie’s Diary #5 – OUT NOW

It’s here.

Be warned.

Out Now on Amazon

(Other retailers will be carrying this title soon – stay tuned for updates.)

Musical Inspiration #3 (Kellie’s Diary #5) – “Prey for Me”

We may have posted this video before, but what the hell.  Many songs were in rotation during the creation of KD5, but this one was the clear winner from the beginning, even during the brainstorming phase.  This song fits more than ever now that we’re edging closer to the release date.

The cover for KD5 alludes to the much darker tone of this part of Kellie’s life.  To put it lightly, she’s going through hell.

We will drop more hints and information over the next 2 weeks, but for now, just listen.

Poking in again…

Just dropping by.  I know we haven’t been saying or posting much lately.  This past week especially has seen real life rear it’s ugly head.

For update’s sake: we’re about half-way through writing KD5.  Things are getting odd, to put it lightly.

If you haven’t yet, we’d love it if you could leave a review on any of our books you’ve picked up.  Good, bad, indifferent, whatever you have to say!  Visit our Store page to find links to where each item can be downloaded/purchased.

Hope you’re enjoying your Valentine’s weekend.  Thetis says hi!

(If you don’t know Thetis, go check out our in-progress story Survive.)

Art Break

I finally needed to get back to doing some artwork, so I decided on a whim to create Kellie.  We’ve never actually seen her face, just vague imagery on #2, #3 and Decay of Innocence.  The approval was unanimous, so here she is.  This is how we imagine her looking around the time of #5 (which is being planned and written).  She still has her hoodie, as you can see.  Click the picture for full-size.

KELLIE’S DIARY #4 – EXCERPT

 

April 6, 1999

            Well this sucks.  We’re stuck up here in the attic of this huge house.  I went to go check out the basement, and a whole ton of zombies came out.  There were so many at once that Jonathan had to pull me up into the attic with him and Sarah to get away from them.  A few minutes ago, Sarah called on the radio for the salvagers to come get us out, so now we’re having to wait.

            And Sarah is just making things worse.  She keeps saying how I should have been more careful, or asked someone to check the basement, blah blah blah… I’m getting so tired of her crap.  How was I supposed to know that there were zombies down there!?  It’s not like the zombies are on a map that we can just avoid.

            What kind of freak keeps zombies locked up in their basement, anyway?  There had to be at least 20 when I opened the door!  It surprised me at first, but now I’m just irritated that I’m stuck here.  We’ve wasted a long time up here waiting for the team to come get us.

            …Oh god, Sarah won’t shut up about it.  If I didn’t open the basement, either she or Jonathan would have, and we’d still probably get stuck up here.  So I don’t know why she’s blaming me for this.  She acts all surprised that there are zombies around.  Seriously, how long has it been now, Barb?  This is nothing new for us, and she’s making way too big of a deal about it.

            Honestly I want to get out of here just to get away from her.  I can get away from zombies easily, but I know that if I try to get out now, I’d be leaving them behind.

            The only cool thing I found in this house was an old Nintendo.  I think I remember Dad having one of those things.  Whoever was in this room had a big stack of games sitting next to their TV.

            I showed Sarah, but she didn’t even seem to care, she just looked at it and walked back downstairs.  I don’t know what the hell her problem is.  I know we can’t use it, but that doesn’t mean she has to be a bitch about it.  Jonathan saw it and said that it was awesome, that he used to have one too.  At least he gets it and he’s not being a jerk about it.

            It’s weird, seeing that Nintendo started making me think of my dad… then the others.  I haven’t thought much about my old family lately.  I try to remember things before everything went to hell, but it’s only in pieces.  It’s getting hard to remember everything.  The only people that are left from that life are you and Lydia.

            I have a hard time remembering Jennifer sometimes, but she was just a baby, and I didn’t play with her very much, since Mom was the one dealing with her.  I remember Mom okay, just nothing really special.  I used to wonder if any of them ever made it, but I’ve gotten used to it being just the three of us.  I guess I can’t help thinking about stuff like that once I get started.  It’s like once you think about it, it doesn’t go away, as much as you try to forget.

            I wish the stupid zombies would shut up, it’s making it hard to think.  All their groaning and stomping around is so annoying right now.  We’re just trying to do our job.  Sarah’s mumbling something into the radio, and that’s just making me more irritated.  I’d rather be in bed talking to you, not stuck up here in this dumb attic.

            Oh wait, maybe we won’t be here much longer.  Sarah just said that the salvage team is here.  We need to go.
