Announcing: Host and Other Post-Apocalyptic Stories

After the plagues came, humanity’s only means of survival was the hosts — but at what price?

This collection of three post-apocalyptic stories by Jon Cronshaw brings together dystopian tales of hope, horror and wonder.

In To Grip the Bright White Chains, an elderly drug dealer tries to bring hope to a hopeless world. But how will she protect the children from the drugs she sells?

In The Wizard of the Wastes, a travelling showman travels the wasteland, showing the wonders of ancient technology. How will a roadside settlement of superstitious people react to his magical extravaganza?

I’ve recently set up a Facebook page – please help to spread the word by liking the page and please feel free to ask any questions about Wizard of the Wasteland.

#NaNoWriMo diary – week one

Throughout the month of November, I’ll be writing my novel Wizard of the Wasteland as part of National Novel Writing Month.

I’ve written 15,000 words so far (it would have been 18,000, but I cut out the first two chapters to make sure my main character would meet the wizard within a few scenes).

I’m really pleased with how things are going. The prequel story Addict of the Wasteland is back from an editor, so I’m going to proofread it and get a cover together so I can release it for free as an ebook.

I’m all set for #NaNoWriMo

I’ve signed up for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) to write my debut novel, Wizard of the Wasteland.

It is the first book in a post-apocalyptic series following the adventures of a reformed drug addict surviving in a hostile world. I’m thinking of it as being like The Road meets Breaking Bad.

The story is outline and ready to write. I’m really pleased with the plot and hope readers will enjoy it too.

I’ve written a prequel story called Addict of the Wasteland which I’ll make available as a free ebook very soon.
