Title: Karma City
Author: Gardner Browning
Publication Date: March 11th 2019
Genres: Post Apocalyptic, Science Fiction
~
A microscopic parasite has crippled humanity with night terrors and paralyzing anxiety. In this world of increasing dystopia, hope yet remains in Karma City. But when mercenary drifter, Jameson Shoals, learns that a famous scientist has created a stronger parasite to kill the original, it isn’t until the bodies litter the streets that he realizes the horrifying truth: the new parasite is a killer with a mind of its own, and upon dominating Patient Zero, this killer acquires legs, hands, and eyes. It falls upon Shoals and his partner, a deadly female mercenary, to stop PZ and his mob before they can overcome and supplant humankind.

**The eBook is on sale for $0.99!**

EXCERPT:
Jameson Shoals crouched to keep his balance atop the speeding train. The wind beat against his leather jacket, scattering his collar length, brunet hair over his eyes like a frayed, muddy rag. The scalding steam and smoke puffing from the locomotive singed his nostrils. Raising his shotgun at the attacker standing only a few feet away, he shouted, “You’re in a real heap of sh*t, pal.”

The man glared at Jameson, with blond hair framing his gaunt face like tendrils of fire . His spindly legs backed to the edge of the train car roof with unnatural balance. “You should consider your own life,” he hissed. Amber light burned in the man’s hollow, jack-o-lantern eyes. “Detonation is imminent.”

Before Jameson could shoot, the man leapt from the train, flipping backward and vanishing into the night.

Guest Post:
What is your opinion on the fate of humanity? Are we all doomed or can we be saved?

I don’t believe in fate. I believe that we all control our lives.

I make the world I live in.

What I want for myself, I work for. I choose it. I believe that I can achieve it and I work for it. Self-belief is a very powerful tool and when bolstered by a positive attitude and healthy life style, success can be a reality for anyone. People can live the life they dream of living if they begin to believe and then begin to do the work.

No one is doomed to failure. The only failure is not trying and that’s the worst kind of failure because it means you failed yourself.

Those who are unhappy in their lives need to understand that everything going on in their lives is happening because of a choice they made at some point. Have a home you can’t pay for? You financed it. Have health issues? You’re controlling your diet. Bills piling up? You’re spending the money somewhere else. Own your life.

There is no such thing as fate. No one has decided anything for you and no one will come to save you from yourself.

Make only the choices that will get you closer to living the life that is most meaningful for you. Every day is a chance to do the work and make your success. Every day matters.

You make the world you live in.
