Just Published - Apocalyptus Interruptus: Episode One

I just published the first installment of a new serial I'm going to be working on for the next half year or so.

Apocalyptus Interruptus is a black comedy about Satan deciding to call off the Apocalypse and repent. He's paired with an atheist bodyguard as he makes the rounds to plead his case, even as Christians and Satanists work together to make sure the End happens right on schedule, with or without Satan.

Right now I'm planning on publishing a new "episode" once a month.

I've had this in the works for a long time. It was designed as a television series, which I submitted as a project to Amazon Studios last year (who declined, of course). So I've got a decent number of episodes planned out already, and I know the end of the story. I decided to just jump in and try my hand writing and publishing it as a serial.

I'm also still working on House at the Center of the Worlds (I hate that title! - have to think of a better one) and Zombie Galaxy 2. HCW will probably be released around the end of next month (June), with Zombie Galaxy 2 following a month or so later. And in the meantime, more Apocalyptus episodes. I'm also working on a book titled Death to Einstein!, and a new book of religious-themed essays.

So lots of writing stuff going on right now. This is the most projects I've been working on simultaneously, ever.

Ask and Ye Shall Receive

About a year ago I wrote a post about selling fan fiction on Kindle:

Apparently someone at Amazon listened, because now they're announcing Kindle Worlds:

As soon as Star Trek or some of my other sci-fi favorites come on board, I'm in!
