The Rain, a new post-apocalyptic story, is about two people struggling for survival. Something terrible has happened to the Earth’s equilibrium, but no one really knows for sure. All anyone is sure of is that the rain won’t stop. It started nineteen years ago, and humanity has been eroding with it. Trust is impossible to find, and the threat of exposure and hypothermia and infection hang over each new day. The sun has all but disappeared behind a forever bar of gray clouds, and now, the face eaters seem to be everywhere.
Follow the struggle of Tanner and Russell as they travel to higher ground, warmth, and some place dry. There’s the constant threat of attack, flash floods, lack of food, mudslides, and the cannibals. And the cannibals are more deranged than they used to be–there’s some kind of drug running in them, that staves off the hunger long enough for them to hunt far out into the rising rain seas.
The Rain is a serial novel, which comes out in 70 page installments. The first 3 parts are available now on most sales channels, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and iTunes. Part 1 is free on most channels.
There are a lot of stories about how the rain started.
The thing that always comes to mind first isn’t the how though, it’s the how much. Russell still does the math too: 15, 5,400, and 8,550. 15 inches a day, 5,400 a year, and 8,550 feet since the start.
We have no idea if it’s accurate. But it’s important to think about it, he says, because it reminds us to keep moving.
My name is Tanner. Russell takes care of me. Together we push on, surviving, heading to Leadville.
Our story is a fight for food and the warmth and the dry. And a rumor about a place where it isn’t raining.
Always on the move, always to higher ground. Always toward Leadville. The town above the water line.
Exposure, pruned hands, infection, and the face eaters stay close to us. Our canoe is no good anymore. Death is everywhere.
And we cling to the last strips of the veneer. Each other.
