On Writing a “Cozy” Apocalyptic   4 comments

TownI’m working on my second draft of Life As We Knew It (which will be Book 1 of Transformation Project). This book was formerly known as A Well in Emmaus and you can find rough draft exerpts on this website.. Cover art will be forthcoming.

A friend who is acting as an alpha reader remarked that it’s a “cozy” apocalyptic. It deals with an apocalyptic theme — the end of the world as we know it — but it’s focused primarily on a small town trying to survive in the aftermath of a terrorist attack. There may be folks passing through who are tied to the attack and the people of Emmaus will not always stay in the town, but the main emphasis is on the relationships and survival strategies of the townsfolks. There will be plenty of adventures and crisis, wars and rumors of war, deprivation and depravation.

Stick around because life happens in small towns.

  1. I am a big fan of post apocalyptic stories and yours sounds like a great setting. I would recommend that you truly research and understand the survival techniques that you may want to use. One thing that bothers me in books of this genre is when an author will throw together a vague survival scenario with no real information. I wish you good luck with your book

    • Thanks for the message. If you look back in my blog you will see I’ve done some research. We live in Alaska, at the end of a very vulnerable supply chain, so we not only research it, we live it. Of course, my characters may not be so wise.

      If you would like to do a review on the book when it comes out, let me know. Or … would you like to be a beta reader?
