XOMBIES: APOCALYPSO is now on sale! This is the third (and perhaps final) novel in my XOMBIES saga, after XOMBIES: APOCALYPSE BLUES and XOMBIES: APOCALYPTICON (all published by Ace Books).
It's weird to have another book come out so soon after my thriller MAD SKILLS, which was released barely two months ago, but since all my books reflect the same warped mentality, I'm hoping there will be some reader crossover.
XOMBIES: APOCALYPSO was the eighth book I've ever written, and the fifth I've had published, so you would think I'd have perfected the process by now. No. This thing almost killed me. I was having migraines over it, churning out reams of notes and tentative material, only to trash everything and start over--again and again and again. By comparison, my other books were practically delivered by stork. But all the hard work paid off--I think APOCALYPSO is a worthy climax to the series. It is a very strange book, more of an outright comedy than any of my others, because once the threat of death is eliminated, the most horrible things become pure slapstick. I only hope readers appreciate the gag.
Anyone interested in discussing the book with me or just sitting primly, hands folded on lap, is invited to my book-release party at 7pm on Friday, March 11th, at Books On The Square, 471 Angell Street, Providence RI. There will be drinks, snacks, and plain old good times such as your granddaddy knew. Thanky!
