Synopsis: A spring break trip on a cruise presents a new
problem for Sylva. Passengers on the ship turn into flesh-eating zombies,
unlike the harmless ones she’s used to raising from the dead. She and her
friends are trapped on the Pacific Ocean, and their only escape comes from a
guy Sylva had a crush on she thought was dead, named Brandon. Sylva doesn’t
normally hold grudges, but when someone plays with her heart they have to pay.
However, with the fate of the human race on the line, Brandon convinces Sylva
to join him in a secret mission, yet she can’t shake the feeling that he’s
hiding something.

It didn’t take long for her suspicions to hold true when it’s revealed that
Brandon has been romantically involved with the very enemy he now wants her to
destroy. This villainous female would rather kill Brandon than let Sylva have a
chance to patch things up between them. Sylva is not the kind of girl to walk
away from love without a fight, but with a strange virus threatening extinction
of human life, she shoves her own feelings in her back pocket to face her
greatest nightmare, and that nightmare starts with something that is eerily
growing right inside of her own mind and body.

Excerpt from The Confessions of Sylva Slasher by Ace
Antonio Hall:

treat for Buffy fans
–but 100% Ace Antonio Hall‘s own twisted
vision. Breathes new life into the living dead; run, don’t shamble to get
a copy.”  —Robert
J. Sawyer
, Hugo Award-winning author of Red Planet Blues

The deadheads slithered, scraped, and shuffled closer and closer.
There must have been more than twenty of them ready to tear me apart like
hungry wolves. The stench of old rot surrounded me like poison vapors. A chorus
of low moans, high whines, and wispy breaths oozed hymnals of my persecution into
my ears.

Judgment day. I laid at the altar of the dead waiting to be
sacrificed to whoever won ownership of my soul, fear or fearlessness.

I’m not afraid.

Their mangled, distorted faces came into view. How could eyes be
so distant, yet so full of hunger? It seemed like they were looking past
me—through me into another dimension. Or maybe they could already see which
organs they wanted to devour. Their moans found a common craving for death, but
their minds were lost somewhere in those useless bodies that kept creeping
closer and closer to me, bending and turning in awkward movements. From the
ground looking up, they lurched over me like oversized lumps of tumorous blobs,
drooling with their mouths agape on their sagging grotesque faces.

I lied. I am afraid.

Pure terror crawled into my ears, listening to their sliding and
scraping—more and more deadheads appeared, crowding around me, stretching their
necks, and spilling those long vacant looks all over me. They filled my blurry
vision with various shapes of disheveled hair and blended shades of disfigured

The horror of my eyes being torn from my face and viscera clenched
between their teeth as they gnawed on my bones and licked the fluids from the
insides of my body from their lips became too much to bare.

Something ticked on the ground like an animal approached, its
claws pecking as it crept cautiously.

Kla-tick. Kla-tick. Kla-tick. Kla-tick.

It came toward me from a distance. Each step grew louder, bigger.
I inhaled, realizing that for some time, I had been holding my breath, frozen
with fear. Could it be? No, not now—not now. With my head too stiff to
turn and my back broken, I locked my tearful blurry vision on a hazy full moon
that seemed to shine a spotlight of death upon me. I spat out a tiny whisper. It’s
time to die, again.

About The Author:
Antonio-Hall was first published in 1998 in an Adelphi University
publication called Luna, with a short story titled “1936.” After
earning his BFA degree from Long Island University, he taught
middle-school English for over ten years.

He now lives in southern California, and was the Vice President of the
Greater Los Angeles Writers Society (2009-2011), and still holds an
executive position in the organization which gives him a huge platform to
market, sell, and promote his work through the many conferences, meetings and
book fairs that GLAWS holds each month. He is also a member of LASFS and
the International Thriller Writers.

His first novel, a coming-of-age YA zombie story, The Confessions of Sylva
Slasher, was released April 2013 by Montag Press. It is part of a series
with the next book Skateboard Xombies, expected for release early next year.

About the writing life, he says: “I harmlessly dream in
Technicolor nightmares, watch a ton of horror flicks, eat more donuts than
I should, and refuse to stop reading Spider-Man. All of those combined
give me a sweet tooth to write about the suite life of zombies.”

Ace’s true labor of love is writing fast-paced fiction with character-driven
plots featuring female protagonists. He continues to write short stories and
build on the world of teen necromancer Sylva Slasher as she reigns as Princess
of the Undead.

You can find out more about Ace, including his music and screen acting
credits, and his involvement with the Hollywood Actors Academy as
part-owner, Acting Coach and Creative Director, at the IMDb Biography
web site.
