What would you do if your world turned upside down?
The Sky Below is a serialized novella following the aftermath of a world-wide disaster where down is up and up is down, seen through the eyes of four residents of Cleveland, Ohio. A new chapter is released every other Thursday with a total of 25-26 chapters expected. Each chapter centers around several of four people: a baseball player, a lawyer, a pastor and a nurse as they try to deal with a world that has literally gone topsy-turvy.
