Hollow World by Jonathan Martin

A Post-Apocalyptic Tale of Fire, Hope, and Miles of Open Road 

The world as they know it has ended. Anything running on gasoline has either blown up or will—very soon.

Peter and his ragtag group are traveling toward Boulder City while Graham and his band of Ancients head to White Sands. Insert the Pennyman, a quasi-mythical character, and mix well. A war is coming . . . 

Note: Hollow World contains some graphic violence and harsh language.

Through articles and discussions on Novelr and Ergo Fiction, as well. There are lots of resources available to writers online, as well as writing classes in communities.

Hollow World leaves me feeling full

The pacing is relatively fast, and the direction is not always predictable.

The author is very good at [more . . .]
