So, yes, a bit of spam/pimpage. My friend Emmy Jackson wrote Empty Cradle, and yours truly designed the book. I helped with a few other odds and ends very early in the process, which is why I'm so damn proud of him for finishing it and putting it up for sale.

It's a good book, well worth the read. Go forth! Buy!


IN A FUTURE WHERE NATIONS DON’T EXIST AND LIFE HAS A SPECIFIC VALUE, A YOUNG WOMAN LEADS A PERILOUS JOURNEY ACROSS THE FRAGMENTED REMAINS OF A ONCE-GREAT COUNTRY

Ivy Aniram can't afford to make stupid mistakes. A scavenger in a post-apocalyptic America, where long-distance travel can be deadly to the few who attempt it, Ivy is a rare commodity—a fertile woman untouched by the epidemic “Empty Cradle." When she's ambushed and nearly killed thanks to an offer of trust she shouldn't have extended, the villagers who save her demand a hefty price in return—a baby born of her womb. She may have tumbled out of the frying pan and into the fire.

Corey Sanderson, a farmboy who's eager to escape his bleak rural existence at all costs, proves to be Ivy's salvation. She agrees to take him on a treacherous 2,300-mile trek through hostile terrain to deliver a mysterious piece of cargo. For the injured Ivy to complete this nearly impossible task, she's got to trust Corey, but his youthful enthusiasm makes him both an asset and a liability in a world of scarce supplies, determined bandits, equipment-stealing gleaners, and mutated, half-human “biters." The other passengers Ivy takes on—a traveling historian with a mysterious past, a cheerfully abrasive mercenary and her deer-shapeshifter companion—add their own unique complications. Though she's the driver and travel-master, Ivy quickly learns that getting her cargo to its destination isn't going to happen without their help.

Now available for purchase.

It's a pretty cool story, but Emmy gets the congratulations on it. I just bookended my involvement.
