Some Apocalypse Weirdness

A weird thing happened on the way to the apocalypse. I got invited to tag along!

You ready for some kickin'-it news? Apocalypse Weird is coming and it's going to be a heck of a ride through the collapse of civilization as we know it. (grin) I'll do my best to explain a bit, but maybe some images and a video and some websites will fill in the gaps. (Be sure to visit the links below.)

But here's the lowdown.

AW is a multi-writer, multi-book, multi-year interconnected story arc of biblical proportions that begins with The Red King (free on Amazon) by Nick Cole. (Fun Fact: The novel has some great Easter Eggs and links to more of the story! So start there.)

Then, on February 23, five more books hit the virtual stands featuring more compelling post-apocalyptic weirdness...meaning stories of survival, heroism, destruction, and despair featuring almost every end-of-the-world scenario known to humankind, including zombies, sorcery, ancient conspiracies, secret societies, virulent viruses, pandemics, earthquakes, mass blindness, monster typhoons... The list could go on...and it does!

The first wave of novels includes Nick Cole and Michael Bunker's Texocalypse Now, Chris Pourteau's Serenity Strain, Nick Cole's The Dark Knight, David Parish-Whittaker's The White Queen, and Jennifer Ellis's Reversal. The second wave arrives in March, then more in April, then May, then June... You get the idea!

Now for the really exciting news! Okay, I'm sorta kidding, but it is super cool that my AW novel, The Walking Death, is scheduled for an August 4th release! It's a fly-over state disaster story that touches the heart while wreaking havoc in the heartland. (How's that for a description!)

I'll be inviting a select few to beta-read a pre-release copy of my novel by the summer. So watch here for details. Better yet, if you're not on my monthly mailing list, why not? You'll be the first to know about upcoming releases and access a free story from me every month.

Anyway, just wanted to let you in on the news before the coming apocalypse. Join the fun and weirdness. If you have questions, please comment below. I'd love to hear from you!
