3 Days to Release of “Father John VS the Zombies”

Father John VS the Zombies will be officially launched this Wednesday, December 12.  Can’t wait? You can read a short interview to learn more about the book and, to whet your appetite, you can read the first chapter right now!

These characters and their story have been my own private domain* for too long.  I’m excited to let the book out into the world and to start sharing this story. (Unless everyone hates it and tells me what a terrible writer I am** … then I suppose it would’ve been better if I’d kept it private.)

Everything is on track for the launch this week (for the ebook, at least; the print version may take some extra time to make its way into the various retailers), so stay tuned for the official announcement on Wednesday.

* Except for my wife and my brother, who are my first readers on everything I write.

** Some people say writers suffer from self-esteem issues. Personally I don’t know what they’re talking about.

Karl El-Koura was born in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and currently lives with his beautiful editor-wife in Canada’s capital city. More than sixty of his short stories and articles have been published in magazines since 1998, and in 2012 he independently published his debut novel Father John VS the Zombies.
