You know your life has hit rock bottom when you’re living off cooked rats and showering once every few months—if you’re lucky. But for Jackson Hart things are about to get a whole lot worse. When her best friend, Tye, disappears hunting for food, kick-ass Jackson’s ‘head south to safety’ plan looks like it’s dead before it’s even begun. But then she meets ex-mechanic Luke Granger, who takes her to his bunker, feeds her with non-rat based food, and offers her protection against the zombie hordes—not that she needs it. She knows how to use a machete and isn’t afraid to.

Jackson was tempted to stay in the city with her rescuer. Food, shampoo and the possibility of finally getting laid, what more could she ask for? But the flesh eaters are getting smarter and the bunker is compromised, so Jackson and Luke have no choice but to make the journey south

Luke and Jackson team up to find other humans in a road-trip romance for the ages. They travel for thousands of miles with zombies shadowing their every move. They must utilize every resource at their disposal…and then some. On the way, they discover that even if flesh eating zombies are knocking down their door, there’s always time for sex and even love.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

I received this book for free from Bewitching Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Next ‘GENERATION’ Dark Techno -Thriller with Pudding Shots three-stars

Pages: 288

Attempting to regrow impaired or elderly tissues, a scientist will one day modify the DNA of human beings by injecting the gene-carrying virus. It is just a matter of time.

Before consenting to treatment, you may want to ask a simple question: could there be a situation in which you would want to die but were unable to do so?

Journalist Hendrix 'Aitch' Harrison links bodies stolen from a renowned forensic-research lab to an influential drug company.

Aided by Sarah Wallace, a determined and beguiling entomologist, he delves into a grisly world of clinical trials and a viral treatment beyond imagining.

But Aitch must battle more than his fear of technology to expose the macabre fate of the drugged victims donated to scientific research

The following is an excerpt from William Knights 2011 novel Generation which delves into the science of Genetic Modification and explores the journey of one man and one woman as their world is turned upside down. Power, Science, Money … is it worth the price some will pay?

How can you have any PUDDING COOKIES if you don’t eat your meat!

Posted by on Jan 11, 2012 in Bacon, Cabin Cooking, Dessert | 6 comments

Well, since I know many of you closet bacon eaters have more than likely put yourself into a glorious food coma creating your own Bacon Wrapped Sausage Delights, I suppose I will have to say YES you can have your pudding cookies!

Lately I have been stalking  Dessert For Two. Christina delivered recipes scaled down to make a sensible size dessert instead of enough for a bake sale. (Well that and after the Bacon Maple Donuts incident we needed to be a bit smarter, I ended up with a severe sugar crash after stuffing my face with three donuts. I couldn’t help it they were SO good!) I was reorganizing my pantry  looking for inspiration when surrounded by light, a glorious box of lemon pudding called to me! What? You don’t like lemon pudding? For shame! (Seriously, neither do I but I had inherited this when a friend moved out of state. One of the great things about living in Alaska, when people leave, you gain ownership of boots, coats, left over fish and game, tang, pilot bread…you get the the picture!) I recalled seeing something about pudding in a cookie recipe I had.

It’s a Scandihoovian Christmas

Posted by on Dec 17, 2011 in Cabin Cooking, Dessert, Holiday | 2 comments

Definition: Scandihoovian – A Hoosier whose ancestry includes that of Scandinavia.

First off, yes with my Lefse raised high, I proudly proclaim I can trace my roots back to the Indiana Tufte family  and am a proud Scandihoovian, at least on my mother’s side. My great-grandparents were born in Norway and when they came to our great country,  like many other Norwegians (and those dirty Swedes), passed up Lady Liberty and kept going till they ended up in the Midwest! (No self respecting Norwegian will ever admit to having any Swedish blood in them, they are all drunks and don’t know their way around a Krumkake iron if their life depended on it and in my house it did. We let it slide that my dad was part Swede because of the fact of being a direct descendent of Morgan the Pirate… oh and Alexander Hamilton, but the Pirate bit is better, yah?)
