GeneDoucette_Eve1400First things first: I just finalized the last draft of Immortal Stories: Eve, more or less on schedule. It’s done and submitted and I love it and you’ll forgive me if I don’t want to look at it again for a long time, because that’s how self-editing works.

You can pre-order it from Amazon by following the link above, and expect it to be delivered in all its glory on July 14th.

Immortal by Gene Doucette
"This was an interesting book.

It is a good job that the premise of this novel peaked my interest from the moment I read the blurb. The idea of a man who is older than written history (50-60,000 years old I believe) is something that fascinates me...." Read more of this review »

“I was suicidal for two solid centuries once. That was during the early part of what they now call the Dark Ages, in medieval Europe. Suicidal tendencies were de rigueur at the time, and I’m nothing if not trendy.”
Gene Doucette, Immortal

“Morning conversations should be between very close friends or lovers, and otherwise avoided entirely.”
Gene Doucette, Hellenic Immortal

“Karyos's people adopted an ingenious, if somewhat perplexing attitude that life was a circle. Not like Disney's circle of life thing, which was really just a nice way to say, "death is normal, children, so suck it up.”
Gene Doucette, Hellenic Immortal
