In a post-apocalyptic world,
THE NEW BREED, a 50,000 word count YA horror novel, twists into the dark realm of YA when Azure realizes that if the students don’t perform up to standard, they are disposed of. Literally.
But there is no way in h*** that she is just going to stand by and watch the peril unfold. She came to fight. Yet, her misguided attempts at heroism become a tangled web of right and wrong. Because, let’s be honest, sometimes it gets a bit muddled in there, especially when immediate death is an option.
I thank you for considering my creation. The complete manuscript anxiously awaits your call.
THE NEW BREED
Across from the schoolhouse, Lyla and Ingrid step out of the Red Line onto Landing E. Her baby is in a bright teal dress with curling white ribbons that loop in the back. Her dark brown hair is pulled back in braids that mimic the ribbons and form a perfect bow.
To the right, the door to Landing F slides open and Sloane and Kieran file out. She dressed him in an argyle sweater vest with a cream pinstripe underneath. I smile at Sloane. Kieran grins back a toothy smile, with big rosy cheeks. I’m sure Sloane added a little rouge to get that glow, but I won’t give up her secret.
“Kieran looks great.”
“Thanks. I was going for professional, yet playful.”
“Well, frankly, you nailed it. But did you see Lyla’s baby? In the teal with the ribbons?”
Sloane looks straight over to where Lyla and Ingrid are awkwardly working out the inevitable.
“Oh, wow. She looks awesome.”
“I know, perfect.” I let my eyes linger a quick second. Maybe I could do Roe’s hair like that.
“Well, let me see you Little Miss Thing. Now where could she be? Roe? Roe? Where is my dazzling Roe?”
Roe can barely see her from underneath her exaggerated striped hat, but it was just too cute to pass up. Her little hand curls around my finger. She beams up at Sloane.
