I am excited to announce that In the Shadow of Extinction: A Kaiju Epic is now available!
You can find it on Amazon US, Amazon UK, GooglePlay, iTunes, Kobo, and Smashwords today. Additional sellers like Barnes & Noble will be added shortly.
There are paperbacks available, too! The Omnibus paperback will be an Amazon exclusive for now in order to keep costs down, but Parts 1-3 paperbacks will get an expanded distribution and should begin showing up on other sites shortly (I have very little control over which websites they appear on, though). A reminder that the Omnibus collects Parts 1, 2, and 3 into one big book. If you already bought the individual volumes, then you have the full story and will find nothing new in the Omnibus.
I have been working towards this day for many years now. The book's release kept getting pushed back as my plans for it got more ambitious -- and because rewriting it took forever. I've never spent so long on a creative project before. Release day brings with it a mix of excitement, anxiety, and relief. Chances are I'm going to be buzzing on that cocktail of emotions all week.
I am enormously proud of this book, if that's an okay thing to say. I put my all into making it as good as it could be. It's a combo of my love for the kaiju genre (Monster fights! City destruction! Oh no, our fancy sci-fi weapon doesn't work!) and my personal instincts as a writer (Horror elements! Dark! Kinda political!). When I began writing it, the new kaiju boom was still young. Since that first day, we are now experiencing a crazy new wave of kaiju content. It's an awesome time to be a fan. I am happy to finally introduce my story to you all. I also think it'll appeal to readers beyond the giant monster fans, because it has some cool sci-fi, dystopian, and apocalyptic themes.
At the start of In the Shadow of Extinction, I dedicate the story to the artists who created Godzilla and, in doing so, started the kaiju genre. Right now I want to give an extra thanks to my friends and family who helped me along the way. Without your assistance, the book wouldn't be what it is today. You're the best, gang.
I'll be talking more about In the Shadow of Extinction in the days and weeks ahead. Until then, I hope you consider visiting one of the provided links and give the book a look. I really hope you dig it. Please let me know what you think after you're finished! A brief review on Amazon or wherever you bought it would mean so much.
