This E.G. Michaels. It’s been quite awhile since I’ve last posted an update on my website or sent one out.
Contrary to some readers opinions, I am alive and well.
Please accept my apologies for not sending out an email or updating my blog in over a year.
So what have I been working on?
Well, my day job took a major shift earlier in the year. I’ve gone from being a freelance marketing consultant to contract work for one company where I am writing marketing for them full time.
This has really impacted my ability to write fiction because majority of the typing I do every day is marketing work-related.
This has forced me to shift my timeline’s a bit in terms of when I get things done.
But here’s the good news: I have a new post-apocalyptic book to announce.
It’s called “The Wretched” and its the first book in a new series.
“The Wretched” is now available on Amazon for preorder and it will officially go live on December 27th.
Here’s a link to it on Amazon where you can read the book description or place your pre-order:

Operation Freedom… A Collector’s Item?
In late July, Amazon decided to discontinue the Kindle Worlds program. Hundreds of authors, including yours truly, found out by form email that their books were being unpublished by Amazon. Even if they were selling very well – like my novella Operation Freedom was.
Suffice to say, it was not a popular decision… including with yours truly.
Fast forward to the present day.
I’ve rewritten Operation Freedom to better fit within my upcoming book series and it will be re-published sometime in 2019. Same story. Different monsters.
If you have one of the original digital versions of Operation Freedom, then you might have a collector’s item. Or just a really good novella. <grin>
So what am I currently working on?
I’m approximately halfway done Wretched Culling (book two of The Wretched series). I’m also working on a short story that will be in an upcoming anthology. More info on that short story and the anthology in a future post.
From there I haven’t decided what I’ll work on next but that won’t likely be until early 2019. My type-A personality won’t rest until I finish what I’m already writing.
I have a few rough outlines in the works for a Kyle Simmons book and a separate Cole Hutchinson book, but neither one is etched in stone. I’ll revisit the topic of “what should E.G. write next” at some point in a future post. I value my readers tremendously and writing the types of books you’re looking for is important to me.
That’s all for now.
Until next time,
P.S. I’ve decided to reopen my street team. Specifically I’m looking for at least 15 readers who are interested in joining the Post-Apoc street team to help with promoting the release of “The Wretched” in late December.

Note: I realize some of my readers only like my Thriller novels. Others only like my Post-Apoc works. For this reason, I try to avoid emailing folks about genre work I’ve written that they aren’t interested in.
It’s also for this reason, that I ask you please make sure you choose the “Post-Apoc Books” on the sign-up form. Otherwise, you will not receive any notice when Advance Reader Copies (ARCs) of “The Wretched” become available.
