What does this mean? It means, if you’re an Amazon Prime member…(you know, that’s where you pay a yearly fee to receive free and quick shipping…well worth it if you ask me), you qualify to receive The China Pandemic for free downloaded to your Kindle. It’s that easy.
There are many great titles in this new program. Check them out.
From an epic Cherokee Indian legend to a North Korean plot to end the world as we know it, Nicholas Sansbury Smith’s Trackers series has it all. Not only does the apocalyptic tale start at a full run, the page-turning experience doesn’t stop until the end. Completely recommend this new series to my readers.
Earlier than expected, Surrender the Sun, Book 2 will release tomorrow! Some of you may even discover it in your Kindle tonight if you bought the Presale! The audio version is currently in production and should be complete by the end of April. I’ll keep you posted.
Also, the new cover for Book 3! I’m writing this novel as we speak and it should be finished by June. I’ll keep you posted. Also…the next project in the works is Book 5 in the Graham’s Resolution series. I’m very excited about this project because I get to visit many of the original characters. For now, please enjoy Surrender the Sun Book 2 and I’ll keep in touch.
Below are few new releases by my colleagues to keep you busy!
It was a strange year for me and I don’t think I read quite as many books as in years past, but I’ve compiled a list of those I’ve read in my Kindle and can tell you what I did read was pretty great.
I have a wide variety of genres in there, but tend to lean toward Post Apoc it seems; though that’s predictable. This list is in ascending order; starting in January. In years past, I was able to pick one or two standout favorites…this was not that year. Some of them linger with me like Alas Babylon, a book I reread this year. This entire list is excellent. If there was a book I didn’t particularly enjoy, I didn’t list it. So I just cannot pick a favorite this year. Instead, I’ll say a few words about each below…whatever comes to mind from the memory of having read the book. If it’s on this list…I enjoyed the book very much and totally recommend the read.
This was my last read of 2016. And could not have ended the year better. Patriot Deception is excellently written, a real page-turner…Ross Elder is an author to watch. I hear he’s now working on a postapoc series…
Fireman Saga is a four story series that I’ve recently had the pleasure of reading.
I hear there are more stories coming as well. These are short stories or novellas and easily read in one or two sitting.
What I loved about the series was the voice. Fireman Saga is written in first person from the vigilante’s point of view and it’s a refreshing change. I’ve gotta say, Ross Elder writes like he’s there in the moment. This is a rare author’s talent and he’s got it. I’ll certainly keep up to date with his new releases.
I hate giving much away but I’ll say this…in the first short story you meet a man who’s done with society’s corruption. He takes matters into his own hands and does it in a way that makes you cheer him on.
If you like thriller action and vigilante justice…this series is for you. You’ll not be disappointed. I know many of my postapocalyptic fans will enjoy this series. The author’s creative exploits and humor really make the series enjoyable.
Here’s a description from Amazon from The Fireman which is priced at only .99
In a world where looking the other way is the norm, one man makes the life altering decision to make a stand.
This short story explores the events that created the character “The Fireman” who will be at the center of an adventure series titled The Fireman Saga. A common man, unable to reconcile the lawlessness around him, takes the path of the vigilante, disposing of society’s problems in his own, creative ways.
A statement from the defendants of author Robert Akard vs. AR Shaw and others.
We are aware that comments have been made on various social media posts about a lawsuit filed by Bobby Akard. We believe that Robert B. Akard’s (Akart) lawsuit is without merit, and that the litigation process will expose it as such. We are fully defending the lawsuit and are confident any claims against us will be dismissed. We are also vigorously pursuing a counterclaim against Akard for abuse of process. Due to the nature of litigation and out of respect for the process, this will likely be our only public comment about the lawsuit.
I’m really happy with the way they all turned out! Each book design is centered on a location and the season that it’s in. The China Pandemic is located near Seattle and that’s Mount Rainer in the background. The story begins in Autumn.
For The Cascade Preppers, we went with a winter scene on the frozen lake near the fictional town of Cascade which is really near Rockport, Washington near the Cascade Mountains. I love how Hristo captured the frozen dread of the situation.
Then for The Last Infidels, set in Hope, Canada, during the spring, we went with this scene.
And finally, for The Malefic Nation, during the summer months, set near Ross Lake in Washington State. I love the subtle summer skyline on this one.
It will take a few days for the new covers to propagate over. I hope you like them as much as I do.
You can check out more of Hristo’s work below. He really is a talented cover artist and a great to work with.
Book Two in the Surrender the Sun series is coming along. I will tell you that this one will focus more nationally and the third book will focus more globally. And, if you’re not familiar with the Maunder Minimum, please look into it. There have been several new scientific warnings that have come out recently. –Odd when the thing you write about …might just come true. Shivers
Also, the German edition of The China Pandemic, titled, Survivor, it doing fantastic. It’s stayed in the number one position of Post Apocalyptic for well over a week now. I’m so thankful to the Luzifer-Verlag publishers. They have asked for the second book, The Cascade Preppers, and it’s now in translation.
There will be another special announcement, in the next week or so concerning the Graham’s Resolution series. But for now…I’ll leave you with a few books I’ve read recently and recommend.
I wrote a blog post about this one recently. I cannot recommend this one enough. This author is VERY talented. Please give this one a try. It takes a lot to get me to weep while reading anymore…this one did.
