Just wanted to give everyone an update on my Post Apocalyptic fiction books which are available to order by clicking on the book cover images to the left of this blog post.

American Rebellion Book 1 of the Revolution is the first book in the series and continues to sell well.

American Rebellion Book 2 of the Revolution had some initial formatting issues near the ending sections; however the good folks at Amazon figured out the cause of the issue was due to using a forced font in the source file.  They have since corrected the issue effective today, so anyone now ordering this book should get an excellent quality copy.

American Rebellion Book 3 of the Revolution is currently being written.  So make sure you read the first two so you are up to speed for the third book in the series.  PS.  They make great gifts 🙂

Will the world come to an end anytime soon?  A discussion that many have had around the fireplace or the dinner table or when sitting out on the backyard deck.  As for me I believe it’s important to be prepared in case it does but my feeling is that the world will not end anytime soon.

Sure there will be unemployment, recession, political and social upheaval, wars, decaying of societies but such is the normal ebb and flow of the world and the events which shape it.  So what do you think.  Will the world come to an end anytime soon.  Lets hear your opinions on the matter.
