The last four months represent the longest stretch of time in which I have not released a new book in the past five years. What did I do with all that free time? Well, I wrote and prepped the reason for this blog post: Apocalypse Machine. That doesn’t mean I typically release novels so quickly after writing them. In fact, there are four other novels that were completed before Apocalypse Machine, all of which will be released throughout the year. But I was so excited about this book, and how it came out, that it was bumped to the front of the line and is kicking off 2016 in a big way…in a really big way. So let’s get to it!
The Apocalypse Starts Here
Every now and then, I write a novel that gets me a little more pumped than usual. These are usually stories that not only have the same mix of action, mythology, science and monsters as all my books, but bring a little something extra to the table. They’re books that, while still crazily paced, are driven by characters the reader really cares about, and might even tug at the heart strings. So if you enjoyed novels like The Didymus Contingency and The Last Hunter, you’re going to love Apocalypse Machine. And for you action junkies, there is insanity galore, with destruction matching or beating the events of Antarktos Rising, Project Nemesis, and Hunger.
Apocalypse Machine is being released in print (trade paperback and hardcover) and as a Kindle Exclusive, which means it won’t be available on Nook, Kobo, etc… right away. There has also been a slight delay with the hardcover, so if that’s the version you want (and it’s a sweet package), it should be available by the end of the week. As for the Kindle Exclusivity, most of my books are sold via Kindle, and making the books exclusive allows me to partner with Amazon to market the book in unique ways. If you’re on a different e-reader, the book will eventually be released everywhere, but for now, the very cool print book is available.
*There is a slight delay with the print editions. The hardcover will be live later this week, and while the trade paper is currently live, it’s not in stock yet. I suspect it will be fully available by the end of the day.
THE HUMAN RACE STARTED THE SIXTH MASS EXTINCTION ON EARTH…
A chain of subglacial volcanoes erupt in Iceland. The melting ice floods the countryside. Poisonous gas descends on Scotland. A tsunami devastates the Norwegian coastline. An ash cloud rises into the atmosphere, blotting out the sun across Europe, ushering in a new Ice Age. Dozens of nuclear power plants, flooded by ocean water, experience meltdowns. Millions perish. Many more are displaced. All on the first day.
