My most recent book is finally available in paperback.
The book began as a silly post on Facebook when school was shut down for the COVID-19 pandemic. I had posted “It’s just me, the kid, and the apocalypse.”
Then on the first full day we got the news here in Virginia that we school would shut down for the rest of the year, well it was tough. So on that first Monday of no school I wrote this post.
The eight year old had a meltdown due to the fact her teacher sent homework via email, and her father could access said email and understand Google Classroom.
The eight year old had a friend over, inspite of the social pressure to not have friends over, because the friend’s mother is out vanquishing zombies. And she needed childcare.
I spent the morning cleaning the bunker. Every clean spot I considered a victory.
We took a brief respite outside, as it unwise to let the canine relieve herself inside the bunker. We saw two other children who quickly scurried behind a tree. Several vultures flew over head. But they avoided us–today.
Back inside the eight year and friend have not yet caused chaos. But it is early.
The pop tarts rations are supposed to arrive tomorrow. This keeps me going.
That post got a big laugh from friends, so I kept going.
For 100 days straight, I posted a new journal entry expanding the story.
So now I’ve collected those silly posts into a full blown book. The dark humor as a way to get us through this pandemic.
