FB3X Drabblerotic A to Z Challenge 2015 Theme Reveal




The A to Z Blogging Challenge starts in just a very small number of days (there's still time to sign up) and there are loads of folks already signed up, so it should be an interesting month! :) As part of the fun, FB3X is joining in the A to Z Theme Reveal Blog Hop (for more entrants to this hop, check out the main post), where we commit to our theme for the month!

Since Drabblerotic proved popular over the last couple of years, we're running it again, and, as part of our regular FB3X feature, Drabble Cascades, we're encouraging anyone who wants to to join in with us :)



Our word theme this year is colours, so, we at FB3X are going to write you a drabble (exactly 100 words) every day of the A to Z challenge, based on the alphabetized colours in the table below. We challenge you to get your thinking caps on as well, and be inspired by our 26 words and join us every day, adding your drabbles to the list at the bottom of the post, or in the comments to the post - we don't mind where you post, we'd just like to see how the muse takes y'all. :)

Cover reveal for My Zombie Boyfriend by T Strange


Today, we are welcoming author, T Strange to FB3X for the cover reveal of her upcoming romance novel, My Zombie Boyfriend. This paranormal romance is being released on 15th April 2015, so, check out the book details, a sneak peak, and, of course, the great cover below.

Congratulations on your first full-length novel, T!

Title: My Zombie Boyfriend
Author: T. Strange
Publisher: Torquere Press
Length: 64, 000 words (Novel)
Genres: Romance, Paranormal, Contemporary, M/M
Release Date: April 15th, 2015

Edward Grey is a medical student by day, necromancer by night. He lives alone with the first zombie he ever raised, his childhood cat, Boo. Edward’s life is simple: studying medicine, training his necromantic powers with his mentor, Mariel, and having weekly dinners with his parents. When he finds a very attractive corpse in a park and brings it home to reanimate, he creates a sassy, free-willed zombie who believes Edward is the one who murdered him.

With no memory of his former life, Edward names the zombie Kit and tries to win his trust. Kit slowly adjusts to his new un-life with Edward’s help, though he’s still suspicious of Edward’s role in his death and is convinced that Edward is hiding his former identity. Edward is very attracted to Kit, but understands why Kit doesn’t trust him. As they become closer to one another, Kit turns to Edward for comfort and love. The fragile trust they’ve built together will be tested when Kit unexpectedly regains his memory and seeks revenge on his murderers.

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/25143660-my-zombie-boyfriend



Excerpt:
Shopping with Kit was a nightmare.

I expect my clothes to cover publicly unacceptable bits, keep me warm, and protect me from the environment. That’s about all I require of them.

No. Kit was into Fashion. With a capital F. He looked at racks of shirts that, color aside, all seemed identical to me. He kept staring at the labels.

I got more than a little impatient. It had been a long day. Not to mention my long night raising the temperamental dead. “Kit,” I groaned, “money is not an issue. Just pick whatever you want and I’ll buy it for you. I literally do not care how much it costs.”

Kit’s mouth fell open in a perfect, sexy ‘O’ of exaggerated horror. “You think I’m looking at the prices? Oh, Edward. That’s so cute.”

He thought I was cute? I knew he was teasing me, but I still liked hearing him say it.

My headache was back. This seemed to be a trend with Kit around. If he wasn’t looking at the prices, what was taking him so long? I took a deep, soothing breath. On the plus side, Kit had obviously relaxed since being out in public. I had heard of retail therapy but never before witnessed its effect. He was practically glowing as he chattered on about the relative merits of this and that brand, designer and logo. It was a soothing wash of words that meant absolutely nothing to me, so I nodded, smiled, and tried not to focus on how pretty his mouth was, the way his hands seemed to hang in the air when he spoke, how amazing his hair looked even in the terrible mall lighting.

It was a good thing he was so pretty, or I probably would have killed him and left. It would be so easy, too. One word and he would collapse, his reanimated essence disappearing while I walked out of the store and back into my nice, normal medical student/necromancer life.

“Hello? Earth to Edward. I’m ready.” He thrust a very large bundle of clothes into my arms and stood there, all but tapping his foot. He smiled and said, “Oh, yes. We still have to get shoes.”
