The Dark Days of Me and Him

In the claustrophobic town of Blackpool, Tennessee, Charlie Hudson dreams of escape, Audrey Allen dreams of being a star, and Theo Jackson no longer dreams at all.

After Theo Jackson's apparent suicide, Charlie Hudson only wants to play his guitar and watch the world burn.  He doesn't mean to start the apocalypse, but then again, he didn't mean to fall in love either. 

When Audrey Allen meets Charlie and invites him to join her band, she doesn't realize the high price she'll pay to see her dreams come true.  But she doesn't know how to stop the coming darkness...or if she even wants to.

As the world unravels, so do the secrets and lies surrounding Theo's suicide.  They say the dead can't speak for themselves, but that's not always true. 

The Dark Days of Me and Him is an experimental serial story told in bi-monthly installments over the course of 2012.  It follows the lives of Charlie Hudson, Theo Jackson, Audrey Allen, and the residents of Blackpool, Tennessee, as they try to solve the mystery of Theo's death and mend their fractured lives–even as the world whimpers to its end.

The beginning of the end starts February 1, 2012 at
