Advance Praise for I Am the New God
"Audacious, original and gleefully offensive, a broadside against the entire notion of divinity, with an ending you'll never see coming. Nicole Cushing is somebody to watch." -Jack Ketchum

About I Am the New God:
Only a few in the world know the real truth about what happened more than two decades ago. While religions continue to covet their chosen deities, the gods we once worshiped were destroyed in the fall of 1989.
In their place, a troubled teenager named Greg Bryce assumed control-and he's been presiding over and judging humanity ever since.
This is the tale of what happened before the world as we knew it came to an end, how Greg was driven by truth and lies, divinity and insanity, punishment and mercy, resurrection and murder, to assume his rightful place as the New God.
