Book #5 or #1?

Alright, technically(?) my new book is the fifth in the Slowpocalypse series. Fifth written, fifth published, and it even takes place fifth on the timeline of events in that fictional universe. But it features new characters and takes place in a different setting. So I’ve been calling it a ‘standalone’ novel, and it works as one though it’s really not. Question is, what is it?

Without spoiling anything, I think I can say it’s opening up another front, the start of a story related to what Kat and David and the rest have been going through in Books 1-4, expanding the larger arc of that future history. And as the wider story grows, the smaller stories of those different sets of characters will come together. But it’s too early yet to let on when and how that will happen.

So, you don’t need to have read any of the earlier books before this one. It’s a sort of alternate 'first' story in the series.
