"A Perfect Hell on Earth" to be published by Jake's Monthly

Good news everyone, my short story "A Perfect Hell on Earth" will be published by Jake's Monthly in their upcoming alternate history themed anthology.  Editor Jake Johnson has informed me that the anthology should be out during the first week of July, though I will make sure to inform you of the exact date it is to be published.  You can pick up a copy of the anthology at Smashwords, which will publish the e-book in several formats including Kindle, Nook, Sony, PDF, HTML, JavaScript, plain text, Palm, Kobo and iPad.

Jake's Monthly is run by 16-year old Jake Johnson who has committed himself to publishing an anthology of short stories every month for a year.  Each anthology focuses on a different genre or subgenre, and will be published on Smashwords for the low price of $0.99.  If you would like to check out some reviews of his previous anthologies you can find two done by Allen Taylor or read about the success of the Lovecraftian Horror Anthology.

My story, "A Perfect Hell on Earth", is the diary of a Child Development Trooper leaving for his first assignment in Europe.  In this story you will learn what humanity has done to survive an unending period of violence and destruction.  The anthology also includes five other short stories:

"For Want of a Dollar" by Michael A. Kechula
"All Quiet" by Ross Baxter
"Wild Geese Have the Sharpest Quills" by John H. Dromey
"Dark Glass" by James Wymore
"The Khan’s Sword" by Melissa Embry

I hope you get the chance to read and enjoy all of them.  Those interested in reviewing the anthology should contact me at ahwupdate at gmail dot com.

[Editor's Note: Hey it's been published! Go get your copy.]
