"There is zombie fiction and then there is crawl-out-of-the-grave-and-drag-you-to-hell zombie fiction. Day by Day Armageddon
is hands down the best zombie book I have ever read."
--Brad Thor, #1 New York Times Best Selling Author
The Day by Day Armageddon
project started on a simple pad of paper and from there propagated the universe of worldwide undead devastation. J.L. Bourne intended the original work to appear as if it were hand written--very raw and realistic. He began uploading his work piece by piece to the Internet as a serial depicted as a simple serial of journal entries.
The online journal was intended to immerse the reader into the world that was Day by Day Armageddon
--J.L. Bourne's vision of one man, on the run from billions of undead, surviving against all odds.
After months of posting regular serial updates, Bourne began the laborious task of writing the novel version of the underground online cult phenomenon. Suspecting that a traditional publisher might alter his work and take away the raw feel of the journal outlining the fall of humanity, Bourne originally published his work non-traditionally and unconventionally. He wanted the story out there for everyone to enjoy. He wanted it untouched, as a real post-apocalyptic journal might be. He was quoted as saying, "there are no publishers or editors in the apocalypse."
Several publishers contacted Bourne before he was approached by Permuted Press. The two quickly came to an agreement and went to work. The first edition was re-mastered to the underground cult classic it is today.
Handwritten notes, underlines, scribbles, random thoughts and other unique markings gave the journal a chillingly realistic (or was it surrealistic?) feel.
Day by Day Armageddon has since propagated massive interest among fans of post-apocalyptic and zombie fiction.
As a result if his cult success, J.L. Bourne was approached by Simon & Schuster on the prospect of joining up with their Pocket/Gallery Books divisions to release Day by Day Armageddon
to the mainstream. It was not long until Day by Day Armageddon
was headed to the printing press on a 50,000 copy first print run.
Since that time it has seen many, many printings.
The sequel to the original cult classic aptly named, Day by Day Armageddon: Beyond Exile
is the wildly successful follow-up to Bourne's first novel. Go ahead, click the Buy Now
