Dawn of the Apocalypse Blog Tour: Guest Post by E.S.P.

Guest Post by E.S.P.
Why Gargoyles?
When creating Dawn of the Apocalypse, I had to think of some type of monster. One that would keep you up at night. Make you afraid to turn off the lights.

Unfortunately, zombies, werewolves, and vampires have been done to the death. Besides I wanted something fresh and new. Something different. And that would require some thinking on my part.

One day I looked at a statue of a gargoyle. And it got me thinking about those pranks on YouTube, where a statue (who is actually just a person dressed like a statue) moves and scares the living crap out of any passerby. I just imagined a gargoyle statue slowly stretching out of its seemingly eternal stance into that of an upright creature. Then taking us all by surprise and killing us all.

Well, it didn’t really happen like that in the book.

But luckily, I succeeded in writing a successful story about these gargoyles, and I finally gave an image to my idea. If  you heard anything about Dawn of the Apocalypse, you know that these gargoyles beat vampires and werewolves by far. Won’t see anybody falling in love with them.

I don’t know if I managed to give everyone else nightmares. But these creatures sure do keep me up at night.

These are just a few of the days humans prophesied as bringing catastrophic events that would end the world. We predicted nuclear warfare. Drastic climate change. A call from God.

We were wrong. 

Cue the gargoyle invasion—laboratory bred mutants designed to slaughter humans. When the government goes AWOL and gargoyles are swarming by the hundreds, it's up to the citizens of the United States to regroup and save themselves. 

Meet Cliff Matthews, a teenage boy separated from his entire family with the exception of his younger sister, whom he is desperate to keep alive. Along the quest to save their lives, he encounters people who aren't all that they seem. Everyday's a battle, but if he can't trust his own species, where does that leave his family? 

And we can't forget the man who may be willing to sacrifice Cliff's life, if it means world domination.

In terms of doomsday, no one could've seen this coming. The dawn of the apocalypse…
