A Few Details on My New Series
I’ve been working on the first book of an unnamed science fiction series for a little while. Well, I’m happy to announce that series is unnamed no more! As of today, I am officially working on Terminal Alliance, book one in the Janitors of the Post-Apocalypse series!
Here’s the sales summary I sent to my editor:
When the Krakau came to Earth, they planned to invite humanity into a growing alliance of sentient species.
This would have worked out better for all involved if they hadn’t arrived after a mutated plague wiped out half the planet, turned the rest into shambling, near-unstoppable animals, and basically destroyed human civilization. You know — your standard apocalypse.
The Krakau’s first impulse was to turn their ships around and go home. After all, it’s hard to establish diplomatic relations with mindless savages who eat your diplomats.
Their second impulse was to try to fix us.
A century later, human beings might not be what they once were, but at least they’re no longer trying to eat everyone. Mostly.
Right now, we’re hoping for a late summer/early fall 2017 release. Assuming I get off my butt — I mean, sit my butt down — and finish writing the thing.

Literature NEEDS more janitors.

This seems like one of those “What could possibly go wrong?” situations. Definitely sounds fun. ^_^

Sounds like a plot ripe for your type of humor – looking forward to it!

That sounds like a ton of fun! And a clever twist to the zombie genre.
I’m curious. Is there a reason the aliens’ name is a homophone for a city in Poland? Or would that be giving too much away?

Coincidence. I was working off of “kraken” for their name, and didn’t even think of the city. I may have to tweak that a little more.

Sounds fun (and funny)! Looking forward to it. 🙂
