Indie publishing has opened up more opportunities than I can even keep track of, but the really intriguing possibilities involve those concepts that you rarely (or never) find in traditional publishing—shared universes, cross-overs and collaborative marketing.
I’m working on a new project that’s hip deep into all of that. I’ve signed on to write a novel set in the Apocalypse Weird series by Wonderment Media, due out later this year. Apocalypse Weird is a big, sprawling multiverse saga involving every apocalyptic scenario you can imagine. Some great writers are producing hugely entertaining works in this series.
The Apocalypse is off to a great start. They’ve published nine books since the February launch and plan two more per month for the next several years. And now, Wonderment is conducting a crowd-funding push through Indie GoGo to take it all to the next level. There are some excellent perks offered at ten different contribution levels. If you’ve been looking for a fresh way to support the new wave of publishing, this is your chance to help build something that will spur the creation of great books for years to come. Follow the link and check it out. If you want a taste for free, The Red King by Nick Cole is the volume that kicks it all off. And check out my novel Follow the Chupacabra for confirmation of why I might be suitable for spinning yarns of end-times weirdness.
