Dawn Of The Dreadfuls & Doppelgangers (A to Z = D)

Today's Tuesday Book Teaser comes from the prequel to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

Title: Dawn Of The Dreadfuls
Author: Steve Hockensmith

Mr. Bennet nodded sagely, then looked at Elizabeth again, eyebrow cocked.

"You know, I'm suddenly put in mind of the next move I should like to teach you all. It is called the Fulcrum of Doom."

If you want gore, horror, romance, action, comedy, and of course zombies, this is the book for you.

Today's WIP teaser comes from an as yet untitled doppelganger story I am writing.




I stared at myself with absolute horror. It wasn't every day the other me - the one from a parallel universe - demanded we job share.






Are there any books or stories you want to tease us with?

  1. I love dopplegangers. I'm also writing one about them, but hopefully putting a unique twist on them.

  18. Great teaser! I didn't know there was a prequel. I'll have to take a look at it. Hope you have a great day.

  19. Dopplegangers are fun in stories, but I lived in a town for awhile where mine lived. That was not cool. haha

    ReplyDelete
  20. ahhh, those dreadfuls. Got hubs the P&P&Zs back when it was out, and he enjoyed it. I haven't read it. Clever stuff.

    But aren't Dopplegangers supposed to be EVIL??? :D <3

  21. Doppelgangers are a fun tool to use. Remember the Star Trek parallel universe? Spock had a goatee, I think, and Kirk was randy as ever. LOL Loved it!

  22. Dopplegangers, huh? Brilliant minds and all that. =D

    ReplyDelete
  23. I don't like gore that much so your WIP excerpt sounded more interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I haven't read any of the Quirk Classics, though my wife has devoured them. I guess they're written too much in the "classic" style for me.

    Dopplegangers, on the other hand (that's my doppleganger's other hand I'm talking about), are awesome.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I look forward to following along during this A-Z challenge!
