Promo-topia Day: Mikhail Lerma's Z Plan: Blood on the Sand

It is with a heavy heart that we conclude "Promo-topia" but, as I promised, we are going out with a BANG! Today the spotlight shines on none other than Mikhail Lerma and his debut novel Z Plan: Blood on the Sand. If you don't already know Mikhail Lerma, get on board now because I suspect he is on the rise. To give you a little insight into our featured author, I did a little cyber-stalking on his Amazon Author Page ( and learned that he spent 10 years in the U.S. Army doing everything from driving trucks, gunning in a turret and being a combat medic. Now, he's able to focus his energies on his true passion....storytelling.

So, let's take a peek at the blurb for Z Plan: Blood on the Sand available at:

Cale was sent to Iraq with the usual thoughts any Soldier going to war might have; being lonely away from his family, not wanting to take another human's life, and above all, the fear of never returning home. Although well trained, nothing could have prepared him for the horror he was about to face.

Cale never thought the thing that could keep him from ever seeing his wife and daughter again would be a zombie apocalypse. As he and a handful of fellow Soldiers escape their base after a massive zombie attack, becoming deserters in order to survive, he begins the long and unexpected journey home through the harsh terrain of the desert; a barren landscape now swarming with not only undead cannibals, but also the enemy he was originally sent to fight.

The newly formed group plans to travel west, find a boat and maybe, with a bit of luck, make it back to America. Cale is tested beyond his imagination and brought to the brink of insanity as he loses friends while fighting the flesh eating masses. He risks his life for weeks, focused on holding his wife and daughter in his arms again. It seems all hope is lost when he finds himself alone and adrift at sea ... but is hope really lost?

Inspired by my experiences as a U.S. Army Soldier in Iraq, BLOOD ON THE SAND delves into the idea of not just surviving a zombie apocalypse but making the seemingly impossible trek home. It is the first book in the Z PLAN series.
