**Halloween Zombie Takeover*** ~ Guest post by Author Tera Shanley

As part of author Tera Shanley’s awesome Zombie Takeover to celebrate the release of  book #2 in the Dead Rapture series, Love at the End of Days, Tera has once again dared to pay us a visit to share one of her most important survival tips – how to ensure that you have enough of the right food squirreled away. After all the last thing you want is to be tempted to leave the safety of your hideaway and venture out amongst the Deads and inadvertently succumb to their own flesh eating diet! You can also check out the link to Tera’s new release and enter a super giveaway where books by Amber Belldene, Jennifer DeLucy and Tera herself are up for grabs. We extend a warm welcome to Tera and wish her a safe return. ❤

  Survival Foods of the Zombie Apocalypse

A good many factors are going to become important if we ever were unfortunate enough to find ourselves in a zombie apocalypse. In addition to weapons and shelter, eventually, food is going to be an issue. When the Walmarts and Piggly Wigglys of the world are picked clean or filled with a shuffling horde of human chompers, what then?

Well, my friends, preparation is going to be key, and in a world where it’s survival of the fittest, we’re going to have to learn to collect and store food like a pack of winter-scared squirrels. Food won’t keep forever though, so here are a few ideas for snacks with long shelf lives.

Dry Pasta and Flour – Shelf life: 2-8 years

White Rice – Shelf life: 10 years

Canned Meats, vegetables and Fruits – Shelf life: 2-5 years

Coffee & Tea – Shelf life: 2-5 years

Dried Milk, Herbs & Spices – Shelf life: 2-5 years

Ramen Noodles – Shelf life: 2-5 years

Beans – Shelf life: 8-10 years

Soft Grains – Shelf life: 8 years

Hard Grains – Shelf life: 10-12 years

Alcohol (whiskey and vodka) – Shelf life: 10 years

Cornmeal – Shelf life: 8 months – 2 years

Salt – Shelf life: lifetime

Peanut Butter – Shelf life: 2-5 years

Sugar – Shelf life: lifetime

Wheat – Shelf life: lifetime

Baking Soda – Shelf life: lifetime

Dried Corn – Shelf life: lifetime

So, sexy survivalists, if you find yourself grocery shopping in the middle of a z-poc, mosey on past those perishables and load up on the foods that’ll keep you and your team of elite zombie fighters fed for years to come.

Vanessa’s Bug-Out Bag Essentials

Every good Dead hunter understands the importance of a well-equipped bug-out bag. One that stays packed and can be grabbed at a moment’s notice. A backpack that contains anything the survivor would need in a pinch. Through Love at the End of Days, Vanessa Summers is learning how to take her life back from her fear of Deads by going through rigorous guard training.  Here is a peek inside the bag that goes everywhere with her.

Extra throwing knives – Her weapon of choice is knives and she’s put in the time and practice to perfect her craft. It’s essential she not run out of blades while on the run, so if she’d running low, she has spares in her bag.

Canteen with iodine tablets – Water is important. Clean water is a must.

Tarp and rope – For a quick and easy shelter, tie the rope between two trees, drape the tarp over and anchor the edges with rocks.

Protein bars – Food is imperative for energy to escape the hordes. Protein is a must and these are easy to eat on the go.

First aid kit – for injuries less lethal than Dead bites.

Spark starter – for making fire.

Dry socks – need at least two extra pairs. If your feet go, you’re a Dead snack.

Fishing line and flies – these can be stored in a Tic-Tac case.

A tree harness – in case you are treed by Deads, you don’t want to fall asleep in a tree without some safety precautions.

Flashlight – it’s dark out there with no electricity. Step carefully.

Small ax – doubles as weapon and for cutting/chopping.

Compass – don’t get lost.

Laminated maps – following soggy, smudged maps is a dangerous game.

Small shovel

Bug spray

Soap/hand sanitizer

Multi tool – I use one of these all the time and it’s not even the zombie apocalypse.

Pistachio shells – provides a clean slow burning tinder for starting fires.

Pancho – stay dry, stay alive.

Leather palm gloves –protect those hands, survivors!

What about you? Do you have anything else you would add to Vanessa’s bug-out bag?

Zombie Baner

Today we extend a huge welcome to author Tera Shanley who, as part of her Zombielicious Takeover, is giving us valuable insider info on Vanessa Summers, the heroine of Tera’s upcoming Zombie themed romance, Love At The End of Days. A copy of the first book in this series Love in the Time of the Dead, an Amazon gift card and some super witches and angel themed prizes are up for grabs through the rafflecopter link. Tina and Caroline 🙂

Six Facts about Vanessa Summers

Release day is upon us for book two in the Dead Rapture series, Love at the End of Days, and to celebrate, I wanted to give you a closer look at the heroine of this book, Vanessa Summers. She’s a tough-talking, knife-wielding bad mamma jamma who is only afraid of Deads and getting her heart broken. And though she was introduced in book one, you’ll get to see her work through some of the grit that comes with being a zombie apocalypse survivor in this book.

Hard on the Outside, Soft on the Inside

Vanessa is mouthy and sarcastic, but once someone wiggles into her heart, they are there to stay and she will be a fierce and loyal friend.

Secret Crush

A year ago, the man she had a fling with left Dead Run River with her arch nemesis, and she’s taken all this time trying to get over him. He was the first man she allowed herself feelings for after the Dead outbreak, and when he blows back into her colony, she has to do some quick thinking to sever her heartstrings to the man who rejected her. But Sean Daniels, second-in-command at her colony, with his sexy eyes and undiluted attention make it a lot easier to move on.

Devoted Sister

She was responsible for getting her little brother, Nelson, out of the city alive when the Dead outbreak occurred. Weeks on the run with the constant fear for her brother’s safety made her afraid to allow anyone else into her heart. Her brother’s safety comes first, before anything else, and when he starts asserting his independence as he grows up, she has a hard time learning to let him go.

Not a Laney Fan

Laney Landry got the man she started having feelings for last year, everyone hails her as the reason for the possible vaccine that could save the human race, and even Vanessa’s brother, Nelson, has a huge crush on Laney. Vanessa is not amused, and when Laney comes back to Dead Run River, she must figure out how to deal with the emotional upheaval her return causes. But through the course of the book, and through their trials together, it is hard for Vanessa to continue disliking Laney.

Skilled with Knives

No one practices knife throwing as much as Vanessa. She’s dedicated, practicing her dead-eye aim at targets on a daily basis, and is determined that if she is ever in a scuffle with a Dead, she will be the victor by blade. Several knives accompany her at all times in the belt of her standard issue cargo pants.

Guard in Training

Vanessa had a bad experience with a Dead last year when she and her brother were caught unaware between colony gates. She was helpless, and frozen, just watching the monster come for she and her brother, and it broke something inside of her. She has grown an overwhelming fear of Deads. To rid herself of that reserve, she’s thrown herself headfirst into guard training, so she can get her stronger self back.

And oh, this girl gets tough and at the same time vulnerable in such a cool way. She was so fun to write!
