In The Blood #3 Is Available Now

This is the longest of the bunch yet clocking in at 29,000 words which I believe makes it a novella as opposed to a short story. But I'll leave that (un)important distinction to the scholars and professors who would probably scoff at this story as lowbrow anyway and get on with the synopsis.

WARNING: In The Blood #3 is NOT your typical zombie story.
The infected have zero page time in this short story.

 The feds have cancelled Echo Camp’s orders with no warning. No more cure will be delivered for the foreseeable future.

But with tens of thousands of lives hanging in the balance, Teague has to do something.

Racing against time, Teague must work quickly to gather vital information from disparate, sometimes opposed, groups at Echo to write a report that will convince the feds to reverse the cancellation. If he succeeds, the feds will restock their rapidly dwindling supply of cure.

If he fails, thousands could die.

And that’s not the only problem.

People have started to disappear from Echo. The walls are good at keeping infected out, but not so good at keeping uninfected in. As Teague investigates, the mystery deepens and it’s unclear if they’ve left of their own accord or if something else—something much more sinister—is happening.

Hooked yet? If yes, read on and find out.

I repeat, this is NOT your typical zombie story.

There are no action sequences; gory, violent killings; or plots involving our heroes getting trapped in small spaces and being surrounded by a horde of the undead.

This is a cerebral thriller that explores how organizations work—and don’t work—to accomplish their goals.
This ~29,000 word short story expands the In The Blood universe. Filled with complex, intriguing characters, In The Blood #3 continues to explore what it means to be human.
