I know how extremely busy you are right now, so I’ll keep this brief. SURVIVAL and THE GIFT are now available as audiobooks. SURVIVAL would be a perfect gift for yourself or someone on your list that enjoys The Walking Dead and other zombie fiction. THE GIFT is a feel good family holiday short story and is suitable for the whole family.
SURVIVAL is now an audiobook and available for purchase. Lisa L. Wiley did an amazing job narrating it. I’m very pleased with the way it turned out and I hope you’ll enjoy it as well. This short story would make an excellent gift for someone who loves to listen to books while commuting and is suitable for those who enjoy The Walking Dead and other zombie fiction.

Some days, the only plan is survival…
When Sarah escapes from her brutal abductors, she promises to return to rescue her twin sister, but with the walking dead invading Fort Worth, TX, she is forced to rely on a competitive coworker who made her work life hell for years. With her coworker weakened by cancer treatments, her sister still imprisoned, and zombies looking for an easy meal, Sarah’s only plan, if she can pull it off, is Survival.
SURVIVAL debuted in the Amazon best seller list for horror short stories in June 2014. It is a 14,000 word (approx. 45 pages) short story and was originally published in the Let’s Scare Cancer to Death anthology.
“FANTASTIC story. Truly one of the best shorts that I have read this year!” ~~ Amazon Review by TW Brown, Author of the DEAD and ZOMBLOG series. Follow-up review can be found at Brown’s blog, My Top Reads of 2014: “Short story or not, this tale will stick with you. This story opens with a punch in the throat and has you gasping until the last words on the page fade as you turn off your Kindle. It can be a challenge to really offer up characters with depth that you care about in a short story, yet Rhonda Hopkins does just that. And you will experience a roller coaster of emotions throughout. It matters very little if you are a fan of the zombie genre, this is a story that will pull you in and refuse to let go. So do yourself a favor…read this gem and then tell a friend…This was my favorite read of the year.” ~~ December 9, 2014.
“…What set this apart for me were the other elements. First, Sarah rescuing her twin, which is the main story conflict with the zombies just one more thing getting in the way of resolving that problem. Second, Sarah’s relationship with her coworker Merideth and how that changes as they come to understand each other better. Not your typical zombie story at all.” ~~ BigAl’s Books and Pals, November 13, 2015
“I very much enjoyed how this story was written…There is quite a bit of action for such a short story. This definitely felt like it was a big story inside a little book…I recommend Survival to anyone who likes an action packed zombie book, with main characters who seem to have relatable personalities.” ~~Fang-Freakin-Tastic Reviews, March 2, 2015
