So you’ve looked outside and zombies are everywhere.  Here are ten ways to survive the zombie apocalypse if you ever find yourself in that scenario.

  1. Stay quiet.  Zombies are attracted to noise.  Even if you want to scream, or shout or yell, don’t do it.
  2. Do not travel alone or at night especially if you are on foot.
  3. Have a safe, secure, well fortified location to live.
  4. Have plenty of guns, ammo, clubs, knives, tomahawks and other sharp weapons just in case you have to dispatch a zombie or two from time to time.  Remember it takes damage to the head and brain to kill them.  
  5. Have food, water, medical supplies and other essential survival gear stocked up.
  6. Stay in shape physically, mentally and emotionally.
  7. Be careful whom you trust.  People aren’t always what they appear to be.
  8. Have a primary, secondary and tertiary survival plan.
  9. Observe proper light and noise discipline.
  10. It will be easier to survive if you are with a group of people that you trust; and can be relied upon when the SHTF.

Some of you are perhaps familiar with my post apocalyptic/survival fiction books; and not long ago I decided to start working on a zombie fiction book series.  The result is my first zombie fiction book entitled Biohazard Redacted Book 1 of the Zombie Apocalypse.  The storyline is as follows.

The zombie apocalypse has officially begun when Creedmoor Chemical begins dumping their failed medical cure all drug CRAv3 into the ground. Its unintended consequence is the reanimation of the recently deceased. As the zombie infection spreads; Tim is forced to leave his home and fend off not only deadly zombie attacks, but also the evils that man instigates against man. The following is Tim’s written record of events as he tries to stay alive and maintain his humanity; in a world decimated by the flesh eating zombie hordes. This is Book 1 in the Biohazard Redacted series.

All of my books are available at Amazon.com and a free preview is available by clicking on the book cover images on the left side of my blog page.  If you like what you see consider purchasing a copy. Below is a sample of the new book cover.

Here are ten ways to know for sure you’re a prepper.

  1. Buying 100 cans of food at once is a normal shopping experience for you.
  2. Stacked water bottles in your basement take up an entire wall and almost look artistic.
  3. No matter how many guns and how much ammo you have you are always on the lookout for more.

A stunning example of the failure of our educational system when students go out into the world and get a job.

Some of my readers have asked what books am I working on next?  Well I’m glad they asked.  In about three weeks my first zombie fiction book will be available entitled Biohazard Redaction, Book 1 of the Zombie Apocalypse.  That will be followed up by more books in this new, continuing zombie series.

I’m also continuing to work on my existing series of post apocalyptic fiction books; already available at Amazon.com which so far is comprised of American Rebellion Book 1 of the Revolution, American Rebellion Book 2 of the Revolution, American Rebellion Book 3 of the Revolution, American Rebellion Book 4 of the Revolution and American Rebellion Book 5 of the Revolution.  Much further down the road I also plan on doing a fictional serial killer mystery series as well; so my writing plate is full.

My American Rebellion series continues to sell very well but of course getting folks to leave any reviews (good reviews preferred) lol is an uphill battle.  But book sales have far exceeded my expectations so I’m thankful for that; and to my loyal readers who take the time to contact me and express their likes and dislikes.  Again I appreciate all of my readers very much.  Thanks for sharing this journey with me.

A home defense bag is a gear bag where everything you need to defend yourself and your family is kept in one convenient location.  I have mine set up; and each night before bed I place it in the bedroom just in case it’s needed.  The bag shown below is the one I currently use made by a company called 511. I tend to try different ones at times but I keep coming back to the original one shown below.  It can carry a lot of gear such as spare handgun mags, spare ammo, first aid kit, flashlights, batteries, shotgun shells, fixed blade knife, etc. etc.  If you need everything in one place to protect yourself if your home is burglarized; the home defense bag is a necessary item to have.

At any time our normal, peaceful lives can be interrupted by the violent actions of others.  You never want to be in a position of helplessness if a violent attack in your home by a criminal is imminent.  The defensive use of firearms in properly trained hands goes a long way towards stopping a violent criminal attack.

The 12 Gauge pump action shotgun is by many, considered to be the most formidable and effective close range firearm for short range defensive applications.  This weapon can devestate and instantly stop an aggressor when the proper shot shells are used. (00 buckshot is my preferred choice).

The handguns small size makes it both concealable and portable and most folks with proper practice and or proper training will become proficient enough to hit a man sized target at 25 yards.  Accuracy tends to decrease beyond that range. (9mm and 45ACP are my preferred calibers).

Generally speaking, for most home, self defense situations, certain rifles may be too long for quick deployment.  Shorter rifles such as the AR-15 would be required for instant deployment when danger appears.  Rifles are generally used for longer range applications and in some instances, are not the best home, self defense choices for people who live in areas where houses are extremely close together.

As with any firearms choice, you want to avoid overpenetration and you need to be constantly aware of what is around and behind your target.  Make sure you choose the right weapon for your specific home defense scenario so that you are ready to deal with any home defense situation which may occur.

Remember that all criminals prefer unarmed victims.  Being armed is one of the best ways to make sure that you have a fighting chance of survival should a thug be foolish enough to try and invade your home and do you harm.

Here are some important things you need to know about freedom and governent.

  • Your elected representatives could care less about your opinions and interests unless of course you are a major financial donor.
  • Governments will use fear as a weapon and by doing so, create real or imagined threats that they will claim only the government can solve.
  • Never waive or give up your rights under any circumstances.
  • Strangers are just that, strangers, so do not engage in talking to them about anything private or sensative.
  • Never make an assumption that an expert is really an expert.  Most of them are not and are only given airtime to push a particular agenda.
  • If you have fundamental differences with certain people it is a waste of time to argue issues, politics or philosophies with them.  
  • The less informed the populace is; the better those in power like it.
  • Avoid the victim mentality.  Take responsibility for your decisions.
  • Consider nothing as true until you verify it.
  • Freedom means never having to beg the government for your fundamental rights.
  • It is okay not to respect a political office if you don’t respect the person in that office.
  • Draw your line in the sand so that you know what you will and what you won’t tolerate.
