I permanently borrowed a book

The year was somewhere about 1980-1981 or 1982…I don’t exactly recall.  It was assigned reading for grumpy Mr. Crawford’s English class, but it made such an impression on me, I kept the book.

20171021_200227 20171022_204414

They stamped it Sept 9, 1974 so you can imagine how old this book really is.  It takes place in the 50’s or 60’s…I don’t completely remember.  However, I do remember the premise and it stayed with me all these years.  What if someone dropped the bombs, and how would you survive?

In 2011 I started out writing exactly a scenario like that, not copying Pat Frank’s Alas Babylon version at all, but my own story that this one definitely influenced.  I wrote a bit, and then I put it aside with all my other half-finished (even quarter-finished) novels.  I’ve picked it up again, feeling the same emotions that cross me every time I think of this scenario.  It is emotional to think what would happen if our politicians allowed ‘the button’ to be pushed.

I picked up the book after I finished my own, to refresh my feelings on both and wow, haven’t we learned anything since the Cuban Missile Crisis?  I mean really, same old politicians and stupidity that were around 40-50 years ago?

My book deals with one tiny section of the world and the characters that inhabit it, that survive after the bombs have fallen.  This family, how they survived, what they do, the morality of it all, and how they cope, is the centerpiece of this story.  I hope this never happens, never comes true.  

Here is the synopsis for my upcoming book:

For some, the world would end with the dropping of the bombs.  For others, a select few, it would present an opportunity to show their true mettle.  Those who will take on the challenge to live without, make do, and subsist on, are the survivors.

Jodi was one of the few.  She knew what was coming.  She read the signs, and she had friends in low places who kept her informed.  She bought a cabin in the middle of nowhere, fixed it up, and warned her closest friends and family that the time will come to abandon the big cities, to hide and seclude yourself for the safety of your family and everyone closest to you.

Krista was her partner, her best friend, and her wife at a time when states didn’t recognize same-sex marriage.  Krista coped with her mate’s compulsions by recognizing that indulging her was the best way to maintain a harmonious union.  After all, they could afford it.  Little did she realize that Jodi was destined to be the savior of them all.

Finding that things were much worse than everyone had speculated didn’t surprise Jodi.  But it forever altered their world view and transformed them into something they didn’t realize they were destined to become…SURVIVORS!

I hope to release it by the end of March, perhaps the beginning of April.  Thank you for reading!

Malice Masterpieces 3, 2nd edition

Malice Masterpieces 3 Books Eleven through Fifteen

I am pleased to announce that the newly edited (and sometimes updated) Malice Masterpieces 3 is done!  This includes books eleven through fifteen.  Each of those novellas are also updated and I’ve even released paperbacks for those who collect them.  Personally, I love the smell of a paperback over an e-book, but hey, that’s just me!

 

Click on the picture to be taken to my website so you can order your own e-book, in the various formats, or a paperback.  I can even sign the paperback and send it out to you!  There are actually two sizes of paperbacks available for your reading pleasure, both 6×9 which is a standard paperback and then the pocket paperback which is 4.25×7.  Why two sized paperbacks?  A 6×9″ paperback is the standard, but remember those ones at the checkout that fit comfortably in your pocket?  Those were sized 4.25×7″ and that’s why I made two sizes.  They are priced the same, and have the same content.

I’m also thrilled to announce that these are the LAST of the Malice books that needed to be re-released as all of them have now been edited.

Yes, I AM working on Malice #23 and here is a sneak peak at the cover:
