Make Like The Roaches And Survive: A Post-Apocalyptic Story

A brand new post-apocalyptic story I wrote back in August is now available as an ebook! You can download Make Like The Roaches And Survive on Amazon, or on iBooks, Kobo, Nook and other retailers.

This is a brand new story that fleshes out the post-apocalyptic universe I created in The End of the World Is Better with Friends, and continued with Low Desert, High Mountain, Big Lizard. Like those two stories, this one introduces a new character in a dire situation, is packed with action and sprinkled with a dose of sarcastic wit.

You’ll have to read on to learn what makes this tale unique.

Here’s the cover and a blurb.

Make Like The Roaches And Survive

Make like the roaches ebook cover

People used to say that after the apocalypse, only the roaches would survive.

Well, there were roaches all right. But that was just the beginning of my problems.

While the world was ending, I was trapped in a basement with only a feral cat to keep me company.

It took me weeks to dig my way out. And THEN it got strange…

I guess that’s what happens when you get buried alive during an alien invasion.

Make Like The Roaches And Survive is a story of scrappy survival in a post-apocalyptic Earth ravaged by mysterious alien invaders. A first contact story of a young man armed only with his wit—and the loyalty of one very fierce feline—in the face of mortal danger.

Low Desert, High Mountain, Big Lizard: A Post-Apocalyptic Story

My post-apocalyptic novelette Low Desert, High Mountain, Big Lizard is now available as an ebook!

Originally published in a monster anthology back in the Spring, this is the first time the story is available by itself—and it’s only $0.99. Here’s the blurb:

Low Desert, High Mountain, Big Lizard

Low Desert, High Mountain, Big Lizard: A Post-Apocalyptic StoryA basilisk barks and chases boulders across the desert.

Has the thing lost its blinking mind?

As a scavenger, Das is no stranger to the beautiful and deadly alien creatures the invaders left behind. He’s always careful, like his father taught him, when he’s exploring the ruins. But this is unlike anything he’s ever seen.

Putting himself at risk is one thing…but imperil the lives of the people he loves? Unthinkable. When the mad basilisk goes on a rampage, it’s up to Das to prove himself worthy of his father’s memory, and find a way to put the brute out of its misery before it hurts anyone else.
