Get Published Episode 156 – Scouts of the Apocalypse

If you have followed my blog or listened to past episodes of Get Published you probably already know that my novel Scouts of the Apocalypse is about to become a book. In fact, it will be available for order everywhere in all formats on June 15th.


This book represents a lot of things for me. It is a moment in time when some of my Scouts were younger, it is a salute to Scouts everywhere and it is the first print book released by Evil Alter Ego Press.

There are more reasons why this book is important to me, but you will just have to listen to the interview, once again led by my friend Jeffrey Hite, to hear them.

I also talk about how the book actually came to be. It was a fun discussion.

Have a listen as I am interviewed by Jeffrey Hite and talk about the book. And if your interest is piqued, please go over to Amazon or Kobo or wherever you buy your books and pick up a copy.

One last thing: this is the second last episode prior to a summer hiatus returning in the fall. Things are crazy busy, which is good, but it means I need a bit of time off to work on them.

And before we begin the show, I would like to remind you that if you have any questions or comments, you can send them to If I don’t know the answer to your question, I will find the person best suited to answer it and play it on the show.
