Author Spotlight: Mike Evans
I'm happy to introduce to you this week yet another awesome author that I think you should check out - Mike Evans - author of The Orphans.
Mike recently won Zombie Book of the Month and is currently pimping this wicked book over in the group. So first off, CONGRATULATIONS, Mike.
I'll pass this over to him now so that he can tell you all about himself and his book. This one is already on my to be read shelf, but if the reviews are anything to go by then this can't be anything short of kick-ass.
As a fan of suspense and all things that go bump in the night, Mike Evans believes readers should be pulled in, made to feel for the characters, and always be left wanting more. He hopes that, by reading his work, you will laugh, cry, and be terrified ... love, hate and worry for the characters and their predicaments, but, most of all, he hopes you've enjoyed what he's written and had the opportunity to laugh out loud, especially in a public place, where other fans of science fiction will want to see what you're reading.

The Orphans Excerpt
Greg clicked the receiver off, looked at Tina, and smiled. "Hey, at least some help is on the way, right?"
Tina smiled uneasily. "Yeah, you're pretty much sending him to his death. I don't get what could have happened to have something like this spread so quickly!"
Greg opened his mouth to respond when one of the Turned walked by the car, sniffing and looking directly into the window. It banged its head into the driver's side window and continued until it smashed its head through it, shattering the glass. Greg kicked at the thing's head until it disappeared, coming back within seconds to put a hand through the window and pulling the door from its frame. "Whoa! She just ripped the door off!"
The door might as well have been a toy as the creature flung it away and came running directly for them with arms outstretched.
Greg didn't hesitate. He grabbed the shotgun and pulled the trigger. The slug entered its already exploded heart, and put it to the ground five feet back. Greg sat up looking at Tina. "I did it! I killed it! Let's get out of here!"
Tina looked beyond Greg in fear, pointing, her lips quivering. Greg turned around just in time as he saw it get back on its feet. Blood and drool was dripping from its mouth, swaying in strings from side to side. The guts were making their way out the front and the back of the hole that the slug had made. He aimed again, pulled the trigger, and sent a twelve-gauge steel slug through its head, tearing half of it off and hitting it like a tornado, spinning the monster around wildly. It landed on the ground. The side of its head he'd blown off was spinning in place. Tina tried to scramble out, but Greg held her by the shoulder. "Wait just a moment. Let's make sure."
Tina did not fight him. When the creature did not rise a second time, they exited the car, looking around. The creatures which used to be the girls volleyball team were everywhere like a plague. The victims of recent past were coming to and walking around, eating pieces of their skin from their arms. They were sloppily covered by their own blood and guts, walking slowly, sniffing, looking for fresh meat.
As Always Happy Reading!
