Win a $100 Amazon gift card with Samie Sands - Living on Borrowed Time!

An endless future has been stretched out in front of us...

Samie Sands is a freelance graphic designer who followed her lifelong dream and uses her creativity in a new way by writing. With a degree in Media Studies and PR, Samie has already had articles published in a number of e-zines, including one of the most popular pieces at Zombie Guide Magazine.

She lives in a small seaside town in the UK, but loves to travel to gain inspiration from new places and different cultures.


You probably know by now that author Samie Sands has a zombie series called AM13 Outbreak, which you've likely seen from our previous features.

But she also writes women's fiction and romance! Living on Borrowed Time isn't your ordinary love story...

Lara Rogers isn’t supposed to be here. She was supposed to die over a year ago from a long-term illness, yet somehow she managed to make a miracle recovery. The only problem is now she has an endless future stretched out in front of her—one that she wasn’t expecting, and one that she has no idea what to do with.

After she got the positive diagnosis, she moved to the big city where she knows no one to become another anonymous face, but this life isn’t making her happy. In fact, she’s more miserable than ever.

An unexpected night out with a girl that seems to want to be her friend leads to all sorts of new experiences, including one that might even be love...

The only problem is Lara has spent so long not knowing who she is, that she doesn’t know how to act around all of these new people, and slowly things become increasingly difficult for her. She begins a negative spiral into self-destructive behavior, sinking deeper and deeper until she isn’t sure that she can ever get out.


Still curious about the author? Here are a few Q&As with Samie from last time...

What are some of the challenges you face when writing?
I think like most writers, it’s having the time to write and the right inspiration at the same time! The two very rarely seem to meet which can get frustrating!

How do you market your books?
I always find giving a little sample of the book is good, it gives people a little glimpse of what’s to come. Picking one for Not Dead Yet was hard because there are so many varied characters in so many weird and wacky situations. I also had movie scripts, diary entries, letters, and many more to choose from. But I decided to go for Luke Yates, a middle-aged man from Australia, who’s struggling with the loneliness brought on by the zombie apocalypse.

Other than writing, what are you working on these days?
I’m pretty much just writing. When I’m not writing books, I’m publishing articles, reviews, and other content. I don’t ever seem to be away from my laptop!
