Autumn Reed is a small town nurse fresh out of college and soon to be wife of Luke Davis, a business major/car salesman. Until she comes home after a grueling double shift at the hospital to find him estranged and violently hungry, which takes her by complete surprise and soon after begins to terrify her. Afraid for her life, Autumn and her sweet dog, Daisy, go on the run leaving the town she has always known as home, to a safe haven hidden off of the main highway and hours away from the abusive Luke. She feels a sense of serenity and peace at her new hideaway and comes to meet a new stranger. But her feeling of safety is soon destroyed when the dead begin to walk the earth. An unknown virus strain breaks loose and consumes many at an extremely rapid rate, turning citizens along the West Coast into decomposing ghouls with an insatiable hunger for the flesh of the living. She must find the strength within to fight and survive, or succumb to the ravenous beasts and die. Autumn will unfold a side of herself that she didn't know she had, and will stop at nothing to save those she loves.

About the Author
Well, to start off, my name is Michelle Weese. I'm thirty years old and live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my husband and soulmate, Daniel, of ten wonderful years and five fat lazy house cats. I was born and raised in the old mountains of West by God Virginia. I am a part time floral designer going on six years in the flower industry but I just recently developed a passion for writing this past year. I always loved reading, ever since I was a small child. Books are very important to me; my escape from reality when the world around me is too much to handle. I will always be a bookworm. Also, I am an avid movie lover, which I think passed down to me from my grandfather. I have fond memories of visiting him and my grandmother and always so infatuated with his "T.V. Room" as he called it. It was four walls of shelving and covered in every square inch with VHS movies from floor to ceiling. He had great taste in movies, and music, too. I took after him and collected many movies over the years, though not nearly as many as he had. My favorite genre is, and probably always will be, horror. I prefer my books and my movies to be horror/thrillers but will consider others, if interesting enough. My favorite author, the reason I am so in love with the horror genre, is Stephen King. The first book I read from him, many years ago, was Misery and I got hooked from that point on. I just finished and published my first ever book, Autumn's Calling: The Outbreak, which is book one of a series. I hope that I can reach out to my fellow horror lovers and connect with my new story.

Autumn's Calling: The Outbreak based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
This was an OK book, but not a great book. The writing was pretty unimpressive and often amateurish. The storyline wasn't bad, but there was way more romance that I normally expect in a Zompoc book. Some of the "action" scenes were pretty cringe-worthy, with characters pulling stunts you expect from cheesy horror flicks. The "heroine", Autumn, has no formal training in anything other than target practice, but when faced with zombies, she is like Rambo or the Terminator. A little romance in a Zompoc book is refreshing and even expected in view of the fact that you might die at any minute. But, this book just went too far and turned into a romance novel more than a zombie novel. Also, the way the characters acted when they first encountered the zombies was naïve at best. Police and ambulances are called and appear on scene, then are quickly saved by our novice zombie hunters that called them. SMH..... Also, the ending came out of left field for me. I don't think that I will be continuing this series.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. A great zombie apocalypse romance. With vivid characters, good writing which moves quickly with the action while providing narrative that provides links to all of your senses, including the disgusting smells related to zombies. I am grateful I get to continue the series.
