Zombie Overload Series
Book One: Dying to Live (FREE on Amazon)
A Novelette (Short Story)
Admit it. You think about it, fantasize about it, live through it in your
head. But what would you do if zombies became a reality? If you actually
were to see the dead walk, attack and kill people you know – who then
rise right in front of your eyes? What would you do when the undead
don’t follow the script you’ve played out – over and over – in your own
Find out what happens to a woman in central Illinois when her life is turned upside down. Zombies become real and so does the danger. Her family means the most to her, but can she keep them alive? Can she keep herself alive?
In this short story that begins the full-length series, you are a big part
of it. The main character “speaks” to you often and you’re invited into
her thoughts – which can be quite humorous at times. She’s not perfect
and she knows it.
She strong and she’s a fighter…but she doesn’t know it.
Book Two: Fighting to Live
This second book in the Zombie Overload series starts right where book one ended.
Canada and her family continue on in their attempt to reach her sister’s home in Missouri. The zombie count increases and so does the danger. Canada experiences so much that she hadn’t planned or fantasized about back when it was all make-believe.
Who will survive…and who will not? Will they make it to her sister’s, or will circumstances prevent the reunion and safety the family hope to find there?
Become a part of Canada’s group. Fight with her, survive with her, and share in her pain and frustration.
Book Three: Learning to Live
This third book in the Zombie Overload series begins at the same emotional moment that book two ended.
How much more can Canada take – both emotionally and physically? Her body is bruised and abused. Bloody and torn. But her heart is what hurts the most.
Can Jake help ease the pain? Or does he become more of a complication than she can handle?
Again, experience this new world with Canada and her family. Be a part of Canada’s life – all the pain, the emotional rollercoasters, and whatever happiness can be found.
Book Four: Determined to Live
Pushed to her limit, Canada is out for revenge. But will that revenge turn her into someone else, someone even she doesn’t like?
Will is missing again and it’s up to the two people who should never be alone to find him. Will Canada and Jake be able to keep their hands – and other body parts – to themselves? Or will Canada finally give into the temptation and risk losing everything she holds sacred?
Who will be killed, who will live, and who will become one of the undead? Find out who has some big secrets, and what those secrets mean for Canada.

REVIEW BY CASSIE HOFFMAN
AUTHOR: L.A. JONES
Witches, Vampires, Werewolves, and Fairies, Oh my! A secret world, which only the Hidden knows about and a young girl trying to figure out what she is and grow into her own.
Aradia Preston looks just like your normal teenager, but she is anything but normal. Being rescued and found in a cave as an infant by her parents, Ross and Liza, had to be from a higher power. While Ross and Liza were on their way back home from a fertility clinic in Salem, Massachusetts, Liza asked for a sign and not that long after they spotted a bright flash of light. With their truck messing up and wanting to find out what that light was, they happen upon a whimpering baby in a cave.
How could that be, who would leave a baby all alone in a cave? What they don’t know is that Aradia is the last of her kind, while all the other like her were
being killed for treason and extinguished, the Seer of the Salem coven escaped and with her magic sent Aradia to safety. All that took place almost four-hundred
years ago. How is this possible that she is now found as a baby?
Having to move to Salem, Massachusetts for her father Ross’s new job as the assassinate District Attorney and working on finding a killer going around that is known as the “Vampire Murderer” since whoever is killing is draining the victims of their blood. Aradia is trying to take everything in stride. She’s never been popular or the most liked where she came from, since she was kind of different, her and her parents knew this from the moment they found her. Rai has powers, and they will do anything to keep them a secret.
Rai notices that some of the students at her new school are always staring at her, like they are fascinated with her. It isn’t just because she is the new girl there is something different about it. Rai notices how some of the kids are a bit too beautiful to be real, and those are the ones who she would catch
gazing at her. Why are they acting so weird?
In gym, Rai meets a new friend, Roy. Roy and Aradia would soon become good friends after they find out each other’s secrets. What is Roy’s secret? He is not completely human. And something that happened between them might end up changing her life. What is it?
Aradia learned that there were werewolves, vampires, fairies, shape shifters, and much more, not only in Salem, but all over the world. They are called The Hidden. They don’t let anyone know what they are, they have to keep secret and that’s how they like it. Learning that other creatures live in Salem, now she knows why some were looking at her like they do, but now she just needs to figure out what she is.
Aradia isn’t the only one who would like to find out what she is. Some of the Hidden want to know as well. They have never smelled anyone like her before.
Soon weird things start to happen to Aradia. She is getting hurt at school, getting tripped down the stars, her hand gashed open and when this starts to happen, Roy and his brothers help protect Rai.
While making her new friends in Salem, Rai discovers about the murder of a werewolf and she wants to help find the killer. Now that a werewolf is murdered and drained like a vampire did it, The Hidden communities are at odds. Rai will use her powers to help find the killer, but will it put her and her family at risk?
With trying to help find the Vampire Murderer, Rai starts dating a vampire named Dax, but could he be getting closer to Rai for only one reason, that reason being trying to figure out what she is, or could he really like her?
Aradia just doesn’t have to worry about the murderer, Dax, and finding out what she is… there is something bigger going on behind the scenes, there are others that are trying to track Aradia down, they are the ones that let her get away and now they want to fix that problem. Using her powers more and more, and having
them get stronger, she is sending out a “beacon” for them to find her.
Can Aradia help The Hidden community not attack each other, or will it backfire in her face? Will she be able to find out what she is and where she came from and can she trust the ones around her? Aradia will soon find all that out and much more in Tales of Aradia: The Last Witch.
Tales of Aradia was a fast read, with lots of action, secrets, and mystery. It keeps you entertained throughout the whole book. I’m excited to read the next book and find out what happens with Aradia and how she grows into who she is. Everything intertwined well, and the story flowed just right. I enjoyed how there was a multitude of paranormal in one book. A good book to put on your to-be read list. I give Tales of Aradia 4 stars!
“It is done. She has been sent to where she can be happy until the time comes to avenge her people! She will destroy you! You and your Sovereign!”-Seer
“I’m not your puppy, Rai, and I’m certainly not a Twilight fan!”- Roy
“You are suggesting I betray her trust, trick her!”- Dax
“Yes, Aradia. Not only are you a witch, but you are also the last of your kind. You, Aradia, are the last witch.”- Mr. Dayton

Sheol by Jason Brant
(This for the third book in the series. If you have not read the first book, scroll down to the bottom for a FREE copy!)
Sheol is the third and last book in the West of Hell series. It was the perfect conclusion to a completely different and wild ride. Zombies, prostitutes, and the Wild West ended up being the perfect combination.
I do not even know how to start because I do not want to post any spoilers. The second book left off with McCall sending Karen and Stephen to safety, at the detriment to his own. The third book begins with a shock that makes you glad that the hero is still in the story.
Karen is in jail, with someone in a position of authority that she never would have imagined. Stephen has been taken from her and she is accused of heinous crimes. The town of Sheol has no idea what is coming and Karen is determined to tell them. The “moaners” are coming and this is going to be the fight of the town’s life. No one is safe and nothing is what it seems.
I really do not want to get into any more detail besides saying that this book blew my mind. McCall and Karen reach new depths in this book. It makes them come even more alive and it makes you connect with them in new ways. Jason Brant even brought a few awwww moments into the story. The biblical undertones leave you nervous and second-guessing everything you have thought about the previous books. There are so many clues and hints if you just open yourself up to them. The ending wowed me and I feel privileged to have gotten to read this series.
Quotes from the Book:
“Don’t you know? I’m nothin’ but a hooker. Keeping my mouth open is how I make money.”
“All your anger, all your hate, all your shame at the things you’ve ignored in this town… turn it into wrath and unleash it at the army knocking on your door. This is your chance at redemption – take it.”
“I walked across that fucking desert for you. I’m here, fighting for these people because of you. If you give up on me now, then you’re telling me that everything I’ve done has been for nothing. You were worth it, no matter what happens.”
