The world will end in just 10 hours.

After Sean graduates from college, he is ready to begin his life. Silly him for assuming he will have one. Word gets out that humanity is doomed: a giant meteorite has been headed toward the Earth for decades, and the government is ill-equipped to stop it. On the final day of human life, Sean must decide who to spend his precious time with. When he opts to hit the road and reunite with a lost love, he encounters a mad society that is rapidly shredding the trappings of civilization.

It's Only Temporary is a fevered tour of a world on fire. Throw your bookmark away; you will not be able to put this story down...


IT'S ONLY TEMPORARY is a work of literary fiction offering readers a fast-paced road trip across the USA -- a horror fiction novel for adults and a coming of age love story for all ages. A work of apocalypse survival fiction complete with suspense, sci-fi, adventure, fantasy, and dark comedy, this humorous mashup takes a bleak look at the United States right on the brink of total annihilation. But, its spirit of absurdist humor and satire notwithstanding, IT'S ONLY TEMPORARY is ultimately an apocalyptic meteor striking right at the heart of romance, and going on to penetrate the human spirit.
