Years ago, I had an imagination flash and wrote a post-apocalyptic short story called Bra Wars. A publisher who is no longer in business liked it and wanted 4 or 5 more stories in the world I created to e-publish. I wrote them. Eventually the short stories turned into a book titled The Apocalypse Sucks, a snarky take on civilization after a virus decimates most of humanity. I mean if you can’t make fun of the end of the world, what can you make fun of? Eventually that book found itself in the hands of the uber-talented Airship 27 Productions and with the help of Andy Fish http://www.andytfish.com/ and Zachary Brunner https://www.facebook.com/zachbrunnertattoo/ on cover and inside illustrations, it became a pulp fiction novel.
That book is still in print, e-published and on audio. You can pick up a copy of the audio version on Amazon’s www.Audible.com. This week I received and newsletter from the publisher and found out something amazing. The Apocalypse Sucks still lives!
Here’s what Airship 27 said about my little book:
PEGGY RULES THE AUDIO WORLD – A fun fact. While tallying sales from our books, Kindles and audio books for the first quarter, we discovered the one audio book that got more downloads than any other was THE APOCALYPSE SUCKS by Peggy Chambers. Way to go, Peggy! Obviously, you’ve a few fans among the audio book lovers out there.
The blurb on the back of the book tells the story:
There’s no apocalypse handbook. Sandra and Molly were two typical office workers enjoying their lives, which consisted primarily of going to work, shopping and looking for cute guys. Then their world came to a disastrous end brought about by a fast-acting, airborne virus that decimated the world’s population.
Now the girls live in the abandoned office building which they once worked in surrounded by a new and dangerous landscape; one where mutated animals roam the streets and giant birds soar through empty skies; where frightening humanoid bat creatures have appeared to challenge humans for supremacy of the earth.
What are two attractive, intelligent, single girls supposed to do now. . . other than merely hunt for food and try to stay alive? Well, there are still malls, albeit much less crowded, and though rare, a few cute guys still out there. So even if the apocalypse sucks, Sandra and Molly are not about to let it cramp their style.
A truly unique, twisty adventure with two of the most likeable heroines you’ll ever meet. “The Apocalypse Sucks,” is a pulp mash-up readers are sure to enjoy from cover to cover.
The Apocalypse Sucks is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and fine bookstores everywhere in paperback, electronic publishing and now on www.Audible.com.
