Regan has her ups and downs.

- Dumping her girlfriend: Down.
- Moving in with her loving brother: Up.
- Waking up to a plague of undead: REALLY down.

After the undead began roaming the neighborhood, Regan lost track of her brother. She's spent the last two years searching for him. In the meantime, she's fallen in love, only to be told, "Sorry, I'm straight. And you're a lunatic."

There's a psycho out there somewhere who caused the outbreak, using nanotechnology, just for the fun of it, and Regan intends to hunt him down.

Oh, and the crush she still has on the straight gal? Dangerously distracting, when there's a zombie around every corner.

Kindle e-book, Paperback or Hardcover (6"x9") 228 Pages.

Although Lifehack is a complete story, tales of the Lifehack world continue with
Watching Yute, and conclude in Echoes of Erebus.


Oh, and Tinkerbell Thunderclap. That's a thing:

The main character of Lifehack is starting a band.. kind of.



An excerpt from Lifehack;
Regan just being herself.

Straight ahead at the far end was the reception desk. It was a large, authoritative command centre, staffed by a lone girl who looked abandoned there in her oasis of furniture, in a desert of an otherwise stark room.

As a personified contrast to the entire building, Regan strolled across the floor, casually taking in the room. This place was almost certainly staffed by 100% uptight, busy, fidgety sorts. The girl at the desk was cute. Blonde, big glasses with thin frames. She reminded Regan of Kris, except without the evil. The girl watched Regan walk towards the desk, patiently waiting for Regan to come within 'greeting distance'. Regan smirked as they looked at each other. Was the receptionist flirting or did Regan just stick out that much here? Regan chose to think flirting. Her gaydar skewed considerably to her whims, and often gave false positives.

"Hello, may I help you?" The receptionist said, perhaps seeming a little intimidated in the shadow of Regan's swell in confidence.

Regan slowly and casually leaned down on the desk, sharing a bit of a view down her top should the receptionist choose to look. Regan spoke just soft and slow enough so that the receptionist could choose to notice it or not. "Mmm. Yeah, I'm here to see my brother. He works here somewhere. Harold Grier...?"

"Alright, if you'll wait a moment..." the receptionist tapped a few buttons as she put on an earpiece with a microphone. Regan smiled softly in acknowledgment and tried to read her eyes. Pure professionalism. Bah. She was probably straight. Or just plain boring. Or both.

"Doctor Grier?" the receptionist said, staring blankly into her desk, "Yes, there's a young lady here, your sister, here to see you? Yes. Alright, I'll send her up." She took off the earpiece and turned her attention back to Regan. "Alright then, take this visitor's pass and head up to fifty-three. Doctor Grier will meet you at the middle cafeteria there. It's a non-restricted area."

Regan took the plastic card being handed to her, thanked the pretty but dull girl, and headed for the elevator. As she passed the desk Regan looked back and saw that the receptionist did not have a body below the desk, but instead a base labeled "RECEPTIONIST". Great. She'd been flirting with a machine. Oh well, it's not like it was the first time.



What people are saying about Lifehack:

 I loved it! Absolutely blew off what I was supposed to be reading and became engrossed in the story of his first book.

-From a huge review by the Cabin Goddess

Regan Grier finds herself in a city infested with technologically driven zombies. She survives on her own for years, until Captain Alisia Terone comes to rescue her. Regan then falls for the inconveniently straight Alisia, which Regan is convinced that Alisia only "thinks" she is straight. Together they hunt for a solution against the ever advancing intellect of the zombies. Hilarious dialogue as Regan will inappropriately hit on Alisia no matter the situation or danger.

*le sigh* I've come to the realization that I am getting tired of reading, watching and hearing about things that portray the world as being 100% heterosexual. Plus I'm tired of the male lead being the only person capable of saving the universe. I want to find well written stories in my genres of interest, mainly sci-fi and modern military, that feature women who like women and are capable of saving the day from whatever is currently threatening humanity. I want the stories to feature love as well. I want these girls to be main, lead characters. I want. I want. I want... and I've found a taste.

The taste comes in the form of a book called Lifehack by Joseph Picard. Featuring nanotechnology, zombies and two main girls who who kick total butt, it's a very fun read. There is one sad bit to this whole thing though... like all good stories it'll have to end eventually. Watching Yute by the same person may help extend this taste.

A very well written story about two women who have to save the world from a pending zombie apocalypse. I'd gone into this story knowing a little bit about it from the author's illustrations that led to its creation, but I wasn't nearly prepared for just how much this book would keep my nose in it. The fact that one of the primary characters is a lesbian isn't simply something used to promote overly sexual situations within the story, except in a few more humorous parts, but rather is used to pull at the emotions of the reader. I tend to re-read this every couple months, along with the second in the series, Watching Yute, and never get tired of reading it.

Lifehack was an entertaining experience, I've read enough zombie stories to appreciate the concept that drove this one particularly since it wasn't a standard post-apocalyptic scenario. The characters were nice the story mainly focuses on the two protagonists and they were likable and interesting throughout. The antagonist was eccentric, threatening, and constantly had me excited to see the next chapter.
