Elle is a survivor.
Since the collapse of modern society, she's been living in the remains of downtown Hollywood, California, foraging for food and fighting for her life.
And then everything changes.
After she is forced out of her home, she heads north. What she finds is a group of bunker survivors, unlikely comrades, and the hope of a safe haven. Together, they journey toward the dregs of civilization, facing starvation, imprisonment and death.
They are alone, but they are ready.
Day Zero begins today.

Day Zero is a novella, the first installment in The Zero Trilogy, a novella series complementing the international bestselling Collapse Series.

The Delinquents – Who are they?

Day Zero was fun for me to write because I finally got to add characters that I never had a chance to include in my ongoing Collapse Series. I was able to explore the personalities and characteristics outside of the military environment in which Cassidy Hart – the protagonist of The Collapse Series – finds herself.

I explore the survival mentality of people who are not militarily inclined, but rather the average of the average: teenagers. Elle herself is a hardened survivor, but other characters in the book are just learning the ropes of staying alive after the apocalypse, and it was fun to test out their resilience, so to speak. The Delinquents – as I call them – are the survivors that Elle teams up with in Day Zero. Without giving anything away, I can say that the group is diverse, and I loved creating the backstory for each and every character.

One woman stuck in a house full of boys, I immerse myself in books and save my sanity by reading, writing and blogging. I'll read just about anything, from any genre, and LOVE supporting Indie authors. <3

  • My basement pantry. That sucker is stocked! 🙂 After that, I would probably hit small mom and pop shops because everyone else will probably head straight to the big places like Sam’s Club and Costco.

    • Lindsay Galloway

      Yeah, I’m with you Toni. The grocery stores would be nutzo! I would head straight for the little gas station down the street, and then hit up my neighbors houses, assuming they didn’t survive. I know a few of them have stashes in their basements.

  • Ariel Mathis

    I’d try to hit up a Sam’s or Walmart.

  • Lori Hopkins

    Empty houses, then to garden store to get seeds to plant my own food!

  • Lori F

    If I was in a big city, I would probably hit a restaurant supply warehouse then the nearest restaurant because they usually are pretty stocked. Next it would be your local corner mom & pop store. But I already have a stock pile of food at home, so I’m good. 😉
