A is for Apocalypse: Cover Reveal + Giveaway

Posted by on May 13, 2014 in anthology:story, Blog | 5 comments

If you’ve read some of my short stories and poetry, you’ve probably noticed I write a lot about the apocalypse. My weird little brain had obsessed about the subject as long as I can remember–the first dream I remember from age three was about the world being destroyed in a flood, and the only safe place was Food King. (That Food King was razed in 2001. My hometown is now doomed.)

Since I already write a lot about the end times, I was really excited to be invited to the A is for Apocalypse anthology. It was the perfect match. I was assigned the letter D.

Here is the awesome cover. The book is set to come out this fall!


What do you get when you take twenty-six amazing writers, randomly assign them a letter of the alphabet and give them complete artistic freedom within a theme?

A is for Apocalypse

A is for Apocalypse contains twenty-six apocalyptic stories written by both well-known and up-and-coming writers. Monsters, meteors, floods, war–the causes of the apocalypses in these tales are as varied as the stories themselves.

This volume contains work by Ennis Drake, Beth Cato, Kenneth Schneyer, Damien Angelica Walters, K. L. Young, Marge Simon, Milo James Fowler, Simon Kewin, C.S. MacCath, Steve Bornstein and more!
