Are the “Damned” necessarily “Doomed”?

Chuck Palahniuk set to follow up his previous novel ‘Damned’ with the upcoming sequel titled ‘Doomed’ scheduled to hit shelves Oct. 8.

Known for his perturbed imagination as well as his sexual humorous works of fiction, Palahniuk is widely recognized for such works as ‘Choke’, ‘Stranger Than Fiction’, ‘Invisible Monsters’ and ‘Fight Club’’ all of which have been made into motion picture

‘Doomed’ follows female protagonist Madeline, after her unusually triumphant escape from hell in the book ‘Damned, as she parades along the face of limbo earth as a ghost for an entire year.

Although ‘Damned’ begins with Madeline already being damned from the get-go, ‘Doomed’ will provide the reader with the reason for such predestination.

On Palahniuk’s website ‘The Cult’, Palahniuk provides his fans a vague description of his upcoming novel. Palahniuk writes states that “ten-year-old Madison kills someone horrifically, and that’s the most-likely reason why she was damned in the first place.”

Palahniuk is set to appear at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego. Although the Comic-Con begins today, Palahniuk is scheduled for an appearance July 18 and July 19, where he will be signing books and autographs, meeting with fans and also be discussing ‘Doomed’.

Palahniuk is also scheduled for a book tour supporting the anticipatory release of his newest novel ‘Doomed’. The tour will begin Oct. 7 in Wichita and will conclude that Saturday on Oct. 12 in Milwaukee.

‘Doomed’ is now available for pre-order on Palahniuk’s website ‘The Cult’. And also look out for some more hoopla concerning Palahniuk’s upcoming novel ‘Beautiful You’ expected to hit bookstores Oct. 2014.
