It all started December 2017…
Fellow post-apocalyptic author, Jay J. Falconer and I started a publishing company, with the idea of creating an all-new post-apocalyptic world and then inviting other hand-picked authors to write their series in that same world right along with us.
Over this past year-plus, we’ve researched our plot and settings thoroughly, gone on a private tour of an Air Force facility (some of you know to what I’m referring), spoken with subject matter experts (geologists and microbiologists,) performed hands-on field study, spent countless hours story-boarding over the phone, via email, and in person to hash out how everything fits together, all to insure our stories are not only exciting but scientifically plausible.
Early last year, we began writing the initial six books to seed our post-apocalyptic world. Jay is tackling the first three and I’m am writing the second set. All six are set in the same world but will have different characters in each series. Although their timelines and characters do cross paths, they are two different storylines within the same apocalyptic event. I am pretty excited about how well they’re turning out.
Next, we started inviting a few select authors to join us on this journey. They agreed to write our brand of action-thriller (i.e., many twists and turns and lots of action) and do so within our post-apocalyptic world. We’ve been very careful about who we’ve chosen, making sure the authors we selected would write the kind of books we wanted to read. That way, we know you’ll love them as well.
We call this project Mission Critical, where our mission is focused on our readers, our authors, and our community. There’s so much more to tell, but I can’t let you in on everything. Not yet. The rest is top secret for now. Therefore, I’m going to ask you to be patient. What’s coming is worth the wait. I promise.
This summer we expect to launch our first suite of books and follow them up with more releases as our cadre of authors finish their additions to our world. But it doesn’t end there.
As this unfolds, everyone who reads our fiction will be invited to be part of something truly special and unique, which is connected to the Mission Critical brand—but it’s not just about books. It’s about so much more: something that will help change the lives of many, one reader at a time.
I promise you, this will be fricking awesome! All of it.
So, stay tuned.
