WWIV – In The Beginning

I like a good post-apocalyptic story, but so many go down the zombie or otherwise totally unbelievable path. That’s OK sometimes, but sometimes I want more realism. WWIV certainly gave it to me. Characters I could relate to (maybe too well, sometimes), situations I could definitely see happening, and a scenario that was literally in the news (EMP pulse dangers) the day I started reading the book.

Well written and well edited, I really enjoyed the book. And the ending… oh, the ending.

Can’t wait for the next one.

Note that I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it

This link to 5 Valuable Charts That Show How Publishing Is Changing seems especially interesting.

I wear many hats, but most people know me as a trusted resource for writers, someone who is clued into the future of the publishing and media industry. I’m the co-founder and co-editor of Scratch Magazine, all about writing and money, and I’m an editor at the national award-winning journal, the Virginia Quarterly Review. You might also know me as the former publisher of Writer’s Digest, a $10-million business where I served for more than a decade.
