The Wizard of the Wasteland audiobook is now available to download from iTunes and Audible.
The audiobook is narrated by Ian Coleman, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. The narration adds a nice new dimension to the story.
Finding hope in a hopeless world…
Abel survived the apocalypse but drugs nearly killed him. He scratches out a living scavenging for anything of value until he witnesses something incredible…the Wizard of the Wasteland.
When Abel joins the travelling showman, passing off pre-apocalypse technology as objects of magic and intrigue, they come upon a horrifying sight: a group of children enslaved by the brutal drug gang The Family.
As he and the wizard take on the challenge of freeing the slaves, Abel must resist the temptations of a world without hope. To keep the kids from reliving his miserable existence, he’ll have to risk everything. Even having the wizard on his side may not be enough…
Wizard of the Wasteland is a post-apocalyptic action adventure novel for fans of Fallout, The Stand, Alas, Babylon, and The Road. If you like unforgettable characters, gripping action, and new takes on dystopian survival tales, then you’ll love the first book in Jon Cronshaw’s thrilling new series.
The follow-up to my debut novel, Knight of the Wasteland is now available to order.
The story follows Abel, a reformed drug addict, trying to find meaning in a meaningless world.
After the events of Wizard of the Wasteland, Abel must rebuild his life and find a new purpose. When he stumbles across a kid who has escaped from the brutal drug gang The Family, he takes the boy under his wing and offers to teach him to live…
If you enjoy novels like Pat Frank’s Alas, Babylon, Cormac McCarthy’s The Road<, or John Christopher’s The Death of Grass, you’ll love Knight of the Wasteland. Available in paperback and ebook.
I am very excited to announce that my debut novel Wizard of the Wasteland is now available in paperback, Kindle, and Kindle Unlimited.
Wizard of the Wasteland is a post-apocalyptic adventure set a generation after the end of the civilised world. It follows the story of Abel, a reformed drug addict, who joins a travelling showman’s magic show.
When the pair come across a group of children being held captive by the brutal drug gang The Family, Abel must give everything he has to save them.
Early reviewers have said the book is like Stephen King’s The Stand meets Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, and offers a fresh take on the genre.
Addict of the Wasteland, the prequel novella to my Wasteland series, is now available to as a paperback for just £4.99/$4.99.
The addict leads a desperate life, stealing and robbing to pay for his next fix.
When the addict arrives at a settlement to hawk some stolen books, its leader offer him something he did not expect: the chance to get clean.
The addict must resist the temptations of a world without hope and live under the strict rules of settlement. And even having help on his side may not be enough…
Available for the first time as a paperback, Addict of the Wasteland is a post-apocalyptic novella about finding hope and redemption against all odds and includes the short stories from Jon Cronshaw’s collection of post-apocalyptic tales, Host.
