Coming to a bookstore and library near you August 6th 2019 from Katherine Tegen Books, Let’s Call It A Doomsday follows the story of Ellis Kimball, an anxious teen who is hyper aware of – and prepared for – every possible way the world could end and whose life will be forever altered after a fateful meeting in her therapist’s office one afternoon. The cover of Let’s Call It A Doomsday was designed by David Curtis. Please read on to learn more about Let’s Call It A Doomsday, including a note from the author, an exclusive cover reveal and an opportunity for one lucky reader to win a signed advance reader copy of the novel!

When I was fourteen, I was obsessed with survival. I had folders upon folders of printed-out Geocities website pages detailing how to survive a nuclear attack, plane crashes, being stranded at sea, even attacked by a bear. I lived in a city. The only bears were at the zoo. It was not a scenario I was likely to encounter. But I kept it in the folder anyway. Like Ellis, my teenage prepper protagonist in Let’s Call It A Doomsday, I truly believed the only way to deal with my fears was to research all the ways the world could kill me. As I wrote this book, I thought a lot about the concept of belief. Why do we believe what we do? Who gets to determine what’s believable and what isn’t? What ways do gender, or mental illness, or sexuality influence what we believe, especially about ourselves?

This second book is different from my first novel, Heretics Anonymous, in a lot of ways. But once again, the fantastically talented David Curtis has given me the perfect cover: clever, colorful, and culinary-themed. The San Francisco skyline has never looked so good. Neither have canned tomatoes.

There are so many ways the world could end. There could be a fire. A catastrophic flood. A super eruption that spews lakes of lava. Ellis Kimball has made note of all possible scenarios, and she is prepared for each one. What she doesn’t expect is meeting Hannah Marks in her therapist’s waiting room. Hannah calls their meeting fate. After all, Ellis is scared about the end of the world; Hannah knows when it’s going to happen.

Despite Ellis’s anxiety — about what others think of her, about what she’s doing wrong, about the safety of her loved ones — the two girls become fast friends. As Ellis tries to help Hannah decipher the details of her doomsday premonition, she learns there are secrets Hannah isn’t telling her. But with time ticking down, the search for answers only raises more questions. When does it happen? Who will believe them? How do you prepare for the end of the world when it feels like your life is just getting started?

Katie Henry, the author of Heretics Anonymous, delivers an engrossing and thoughtful tale about how people survive — with some faith in family, friends, and maybe a few prepper forums.

As an extra, exciting bonus, Katie has been kind enough to offer one lucky reader the opportunity to win a signed advance reader copy of Let’s Call It A Doomsday!
