Apocalypse Ink Productions 3rd Year Anniversary

by Jennifer 6. April 2015 10:49

This month, Apocalypse Ink Productions celebrates our 3rd anniversary. We started this independent publishing company with a plan to produce excellent dark fiction and non-fiction books that assist writers in their venture towards publication.

Of course, not everything went exactly as planned; there’ve been some hiccups and heartaches. Through it all, we’ve always found a way to not only move forward but learn from the experience.


We’ve met some really great authors in the past few years and made friends from all over the world. You have our sincere thanks. Without you we’d not be here.

AIP would also like to give our authors a big shout out. Some of you have been with us for most of the ride. Others are newly acquired. Our biggest desire is to see you succeed so we will work hard to make that happen.

To our fans, thank you so much for supporting us.

To those who have just happened across our site, let me introduce you to the crew.


Ivan Ewert is the author of the Gentleman Ghouls series. The first two books, Famished: The Farm and Famished: The Commons are currently out with Ivan working on the third book of the series, Famished: The Ranch currently in production.


The Sheynan trilogy, by Dylan Birtolo, takes you into the world of shapeshifters with the first two books, The Shadow Chaser and The Bringer of War. The third book, The Torn Soul will be out next month.


If you’d like dark fantasy Peter M Ball’s trilogy, The Flotsam, is right up your alley. The first two books, Exile and Frost take you to The Gold Coast in Australia. Crusade, released later this year, concludes this series.


Jennifer Brozek concluded her Karen Wilson Chronicles last month. Follow Karen Wilson as she discovers a hidden world in the very city she lives in. We’d also like to congratulate her on her Hugo award nomination for Best Editor, Short Form. We couldn’t be more happy for her.


Look for a new series by Wendy Hammer. The Thin, the first book in The Cross Cutting trilogy comes out in August.


But AIP also has non-fiction as well.


If you are considering writing for RPGs or editing an anthology, Industry Talk, would be great to check out.


Last but not least is Jay Lake’s Process of Writing. This book takes the reader through posts written by Jay Lake throughout his years of writing. It’s an excellent glimpse at the growth and process of writing.


Again, we thank you for reading and we look forward to bringing you more books in the upcoming years.

Jay Lake’s Process of Writing Non-Fiction Book Bought

by Jennifer 19. September 2012 12:02

Apocalypse Ink Productions has bought the Jay Lake non-fiction book Jay Lake’s Process of Writing. Based on more than a decade of Lake’s blog posts pertaining to writing process, Lake’s down-to-earth and in-the-trenches thoughts on what it takes to be a working author will inform and inspire all levels of writers.

“I've been thinking and talking about writing for a long time. Finally, I've been given the opportunity to organize those thoughts in a way that is hopefully helpful to both emerging writers and established authors. In this book you'll find some wit, some wisdom and a lot of my own learning curve, along with some new material to bridge it all together and make sense of years of public rambling.”

Jay Lake’s Process of Writing has been scheduled for release in May of 2013.

AIP purchases debut horror novel from Chicago horror author

Apocalypse Ink Productions has purchased Famished, the debut novel of author Ivan Ewert. The book is based on Ewert’s web series Vorare, that was previously published by The Edge of Propinquity webzine. Famished, which contains themes of isolation, cannibalism, and familial ties, has given members of the AIP staff shivers and nightmares.

AIP anticipates a late 2012 release.
