New Release: The Shopping Mall Massacre (Zombies!!)

Sooo, I have a new release today. However, it won't be available for download on Amazon or the other places. The reason is that I'm expanding the short story into a novel that I'll be publishing it under the YA name Erica Archer. I've finished about 72% of the novel (which will probably be titled The Crazies), and I'm hoping it'll be out before the end of the year. If you have a Goodreads account (which is free), you can read the short story (about 15k words) here: M/M Romance Group.

The name of the story is The Shopping Mall Massacre and here's the blurb:

A day trip to the mall turns deadly for Bastian when zombie knockoffs storm the doors and start eating shoppers. Luckily, his college buddy Oliver is on hand to pull him to safety. 
Hunkered down in a toy store full of traumatized people with no help coming from an equally beleaguered outside world, Bastian and Oliver must find a way to keep their group alive and avoid the infected stalking the mall's hallways when they make their bid for freedom. It won't be easy to get out and stay safe while tiptoeing around the strong feelings the two young men have for one another.

The Equal Rights Blog Hop

I'm taking part in The Equal Rights Blog Hop and I'm doing it differently than usual. Instead of commenting to take part, you'll need to use this Rafflecopter. Of course, you're welcome to comment, but it won't get you an entry ;) What I'm offering is an eCopy of Absolutely Eric. There are 29 other LGBT writers taking part, so there's a lot to win! To visit the other participants, you can either go to The Equal Rights hop page, or scroll to the bottom of this post for the link list.

The theme of this hop is to describe my first experience in the LGBT community. My first experience was the online writing community and that was pretty easy. I find the community relaxed and friendly. My first experience with the LGBT community in Iceland was two years ago when I visited the LGBT center in Reykjavik. Honestly? My heart was pumping in my throat as I walked in. I have no idea why. I think it was the excitement and a bit of nervousness of stepping into the building I'd walked past over a hundred of times before (and always looked at the flag each time). The one with the little rainbow flag on the main street. I talked to Árni, the director, whom I've visited many times since, and I asked him questions about the Icelandic LGBT community. He was very open and inviting and it gave me confidence to visit an LGBT masquerade, become a member to support the operation that is solely funded by donations, browse through their LGBT-only library, and visit an LGBT café and later a bar. Since I don't really know many LGBT people in Iceland (or just people in general, as I'm a pretty private person offline), I've gone to these events alone (which was hard but made me proud of myself), but I've never been met with anything other than friendliness and curiosity (which is probably normal in such a small community - "hey, who's this new girl?"). 

Anyway, back to the hop business: What you have to do to get an entry for my prize is to answer this question:

What does Eric want to find?

You can find a hint for the one-word answer in the first part of the below blurb. It's a four-letter word starting with L and ending with E. Come on, you can do this! 

Eric Wesley is short and snazzy, hot and happy. Or that's what he thought. After three years of living on the wild side hes tired of being a playboy and wants to find love.

Eric, however, has never been in love before and doesn't see that the guy who's been gazing at him all summer might be Mr. Right. Alexander Centauri isn't only style-less and clumsy, but also terribly awkward. After a miserable date, Eric plants Alex on another guys lap and goes after Mr. Wrong who looks so right.

When Eric realizes his mistake, it might be too late.
