Finally! I’m revealing the news I vagueposted about back on January 7th! (And again on January 14th!) My novel Apocalypse All the Time is forthcoming from Literary Wanderlust (tentatively) in January of 2017!
Doesn’t it seem as if someone issues a new apocalypse prediction every week? Y2K? The Mayan apocalypse? The Rapture? Doesn’t it seem endless? As opposed to the traditional trend of post-apocalyptic literature, Apocalypse All the Time is post-post-apocalypticism. Marshall is sick of the apocalypse happening on a weekly (if not daily) basis. Life is constantly in peril, continually disrupted, but nothing significant ever happens. The emergency is always handled. Always. Marshall wants out; he wants it all to stop…one way or another. Apocalypse All the Time explores humanity’s fascination with the end times and what impact such a fascination has on the way we live our lives.
Literary Wanderlust accepted the novel on January 7th and we signed a contract January 14th, but we wanted to wait to announce so as to not distract from Not Quite so Stories, hence the reason for the vague posting.
