Laurence MacNaughton's It Happened One Doomsday debuts this month (July, 2016) and it's already off to a roaring start.

Publisher’s Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, RT Book Reviews and Library Journal have all weighed in with glowing comments and Barnes & Noble is getting behind the new title in a very big way.

On the podcast, Laurence MacNaughton talks about the approach to writing It Happened One Doomsday, particularly how a chance conversation with one Hugh Howey led to a shift in his thinking about how to write the story. He also gives us a quick look at his Instant Plot workshop and gives us a sneak peek at another workshop that it’s in development. Laurence MacNaughton grew up Connecticut and old his first magazine story at age 19.

Over the years, he’s been a bookseller, typesetter, printer, copywriter and a prototype vehicle test driver.

This episode includes Laurence reading a scene from It Happened One Doomsday.
