Introducing PREPPIES OF THE APOCALYPSE
As many of you know, the name for this site comes from a very old screenplay I wrote in 1999, which I then adapted into a young adult novel in 2001, which I then adapted into another screenplay in 2008. I have now adapted that second screenplay into another novel, which is now available at Amazon. The gorgeous cover is the work of Morgan Dodge.
It's more a novella than a novel, actually--it comes in at just under 44,000 words, which is pretty short. You can read it in a sitting, probably. It's priced accordingly: only $0.99.
It's a young adult fantasy book. Probably a little grim for small kids. Probably just right for adults.
Here's the synopsis:
Still reeling from a devastating tragedy, Kit Garrett struggles to adjust to his fancy new prep school. When his estranged older sister Ivy starts undergoing a frightening physical transformation, Kit embarks upon a quest to save her. He follows Ivy into a cave near his school and finds himself stranded twenty years in the future, after a mysterious catastrophe has obliterated almost all traces of human life.
Accompanied by his nemesis Ashley, the star of the school’s lacrosse team, Kit makes his way across a destroyed land in search of his sister. Defenseless and in way over their heads, Kit and Ashley face off against a succession of dangerous and bizarre creatures: vicious imps with a taste for human flesh, telepathic cockroaches, and a gorgeous but lethal glass dragon. While Ivy struggles to come to terms with her ghastly birthright, Kit unearths the long-buried secrets of his own dark past. Kit’s mission becomes clear: rescue Ivy, find a way back to his own time… and save the world, if he can.
