More About the Author

Maia Sepp is an author of quirky contemporary and Apocalyptic fiction. She left the tech sector to write books about sock thievery, migraines, the future, and...the tech sector.

"The Sock Wars," an Amazon top-100 digital bestseller, is her first book. Maia's second novel is "The Migraine Mafia," a story about a nerdy thirtysomething's quest to come to terms with a chronic illness. Her third book, "An Etiquette Guide to the End Times," is a humorous near-future Apocalyptic novella.

INITIAL THOUGHTS
Not sure what to expect is it going to be a list of do & don't etiquette related lists or is it a dystopian/post apocalyptic short story/novella? From the blurb it seem's like it will be the latter.

MY REVIEW
This novella is set in a post apocalyptic future. The year is 2028 and the place is Toronto. Someone turned off the internet, and this novella shows how the people of 2028 have to cope with that. Only the "Core" have electric cars. the "Core" is the "government/ rulers".
People have had to go back to a more basic way of living. Energy saving by having solar panels, growing their own vegetables in their gardens. A bartering system is in place as money has lost it's value. People keep chickens in their back yards but to have them they have to have permits. Anyone found to have more than they had applied for and been grant permission for could and was confiscated.
The main character is Olive O'Malley, at the beginning of the novella she is up on her roof de-tangling and re-connecting wires to her solar panels that the racoons have chewed through! Olive hears a car pull onto her road which is highly unusual. After taking a curious gaze at the car she decides it must be people from the "Core" and that they have dropped by to confiscate her two extra illegal chickens.
When the people get out of the car, there are three of them. Two Me and a woman. It's the woman that speaks to Olive and tries to make an offer Olive cannot refuse. The "Core" want Olive to use her popular agony aunt style column to say good things about the "core". Olive will continue as she has been writing, they will check and perhaps edit/adjust what she has wrote prior to publishing. Olive's first instinct is a resounding NO!

An Etiquette Guide To The End Times is set in 2028 Toronto, after global warming has brought life as it was formerly known to a slow halt. Olive O'Malley is a 33-year-old etiquette guide columnist doing her best to survive and guide others in the ways of etiquette as society adapts to a new way of life.

I found this novella a really interesting take on the end-times scenario. Maia Sepp wanted to write about what would happen if the apocalypse was slower and sneakier than a sudden zombie outbreak. She did a great job setting up a world in which global warming has led to massive changes in the way of life we currently take for granted. This is one of those books that, while written with humor, can also be taken as a serious warning. Some of the changes the government has instituted in Olive's world - like surveillance drones that fly overhead every day to make sure you don't have, say, more chickens than you have permits for - seem scarily possible, even predictive.

I appreciated the seeming incongruity between Sepp's tongue-in-cheek writing style and the Orwellian government of Olive's reality - Sepp took what could have been a very dark, heavy topic and made it lighthearted without trivializing it. Overall, I found this novella , which can be read in a single sitting, well-written and very much worth the read - it's both humorous and scary in a "this could actually happen" sort of way.

I received an ecopy of this novella for review purposes; all opinions are 100% my own.

My favorite Sepp-ian work yet! An Etiquette Guide to the End Times is a terrifying and hilarious look into what may be our not-so-distant future. With a plucky main character, a lovable Diabetic-Grandfather-In-Distress, and a "Core" of corporate bad-guys, this novella is sure to appeal to anyone interested in the preservation of our home planet

In 'An Etiquette Guide to the End Times' we learn that just because the world is slowly unwinding and there is disruption and chaos, this is no time to lose our civility and manners.

It's 2028 and global warming has made Toronto a very warm place. There are food and water shortages and surviving is kind of a full time gig. Olive has an etiquette blog on the internet, except now there is not internet. On top of that, "friendly" government officials come knocking and bribing her with pastries. They want her to work for them and help spread the word that everything is great, when the evidence seems to be otherwise. If that's not enough, Olive's grandfather Fred has gone missing and she's going to have to go through some food bribery of her own to get him back.

I really loved this book. This is an apocalypse with no zombies, but lots of character. Olive's dilemmas and adventures are wry and intelligent. The clever title alone got me to read this and I'm so very glad I did.

I was given a review copy of this ebook by Maia Sepp and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me the chance to review such a delightful book.

This book is definitely an original! The author has breathed completely new life into a well-explored genre with An Etiquette Guide to the End Times: A Novella. Besides being well-written and entertaining, I love the creativity behind it all as she mixes an end time/dystopian plot with etiquette. If you like the lighter side of apocalypse settings, you will LOVE this book.
