L'il Gal Al and the Zombies of Amarillo

Scrawny cowgirl vs. zombies

L'il Gal Al is a dime-store western with bite. A little cheesy and gory, and full of southern twang.

Blurb:
Alma Sweeney might be scrawny, but the last yahoo that called her "L'il Gal Al" got shot in the foot.

Using her frontier skills to protect travelers and businesses alike, Alma escorts a group of settlers into Amarillo, a town with too many yellow flowers, drunks, and zombies. Within minutes of her arrival, she finds herself doing the sheriff's job. He's a nice enough fellow, but a little green, and he has no clue how to stop the horror dragging itself into his town.

Lucky for the sheriff, he has Alma. Her first night in town yanks her into a foul mystery. Zombies walk the streets and people are driven from their homes and businesses. Alma thinks it easily solved, but in the desert, things aren't always as they seem.
The clock is ticking and the zombies are swarming. Alma needs to know where to point her gun or else be torn into pieces.

Did I surprise you with a western horror? This is nothing like the paranormal romance I usually write. It's fun to write outside of your genre now and then, though. I also love old west stories with a twist. Maybe some steampunk, the supernatural, or an alien. Let your imagination take you to places beyond the dusty old saloon.

I hope to have this novelette out in a couple of weeks. I'll be offering it for free. A Halloween treat for you.

Don't forget to join me tomorrow for the big Birthday Bash and giveaway!
