Shopping for the Zombie Apocalypse
By Avery Flynn
Female Fighters in Fiction
after writing a zombie fairy tale, I’d be all prepared for the zombie
apocalypse. After all, shopping is my superpower. Here are some of the
must-haves I’ve found for when the undead rise up.
those bracelets for the LiveStrong Foundation? I think of this What’s Your Zombie Action Plan magnet/bracelet
the perfect reminder to always be thinking of what if. Also, if someone gets
too chatty on public transportation you can always show it to them and ask in
your best crazy voice, “What’s your plan?
pretty good chance my home owners’ association would not see the humor in it,
but I’d love to have my house declared a zombie survival shelter. I wonder where the
best place in the house is to seek shelter from zombie attack? Is it like a
tornado when you want a windowless room?
It would rock
to have these zombie survival soaps in my guest bathroom.
“Goat milk is your best line of defense. Goat milk contains specific acids that
lower the pH of this soap, making a gentler soap for living skin, but also
repellent to the undead.” LOL, that is brilliant!
OK, this zombie survival kit makes me worry a bit. I
mean, they’re taking this a little too seriously, right? It contains,
“Everything you need to survive for 72 hours after a disaster or during a
zombie apocalypse.” You’re with me on this one right?
bring you the most important and useful of all my zombie survival shopping
finds. A flask. Let’s face it, I suck at running, my
aim is awful and I’d make it about two days without the Internet so getting
drunk may be my best option. How about you?

You know there’s trouble ahead when zombies aren’t your biggest worry.
The treasure hunter… Veronica Kwon is determined to be the only person in control of her destiny. After surviving a broken engagement and turning her back on her wealthy manipulative father, she’s started a treasure hunting company and is ready for the adventure of a lifetime.
The ex-fiance… Jax Taylor is a Southern charmer with enough sex appeal to melt the polar ice caps. He disappeared three months before their wedding and swore he’d never cross paths with Veronica again.
The magic beanstalk… Brought together again by their dying mentor, who has found three enchanted beans, Veronica and Jax agree to an uneasy partnership. Together they’ll climb a magic beanstalk to the cloud kingdom, but will their destiny be the riches they so desire, the passion they thought dead…or will the undead get them first?
