The book bomb approaches!

James Wesley, Rawles, the incomparable editor of, has a new book coming out! This is the riveting sequel to his best seller Patriots.

A brief synopsis of the book:

Instead of extending the "Patriots" saga further into the future, the storyline of "Survivors" is contemporaneous with the action in the first book. But it is set in different locales, with mostly different characters, with vastly different levels of preparedness. The novel opens with the perspective of a U.S. Army officer deployed in Afghanistan, just as "The Crunch" begins. Unlike the protagonists in "Patriots", most of the characters in "Survivors" don't have deep larder, so they are forced to scramble and improvise. There are just a few crossover characters between the two novels, such as Ian and Blanca Doyle (whom you will remember from "Patriots" as the pilots living near Luke Air Force Base.)

It is an exciting novel. The lead character, Andy Laine, is a U.S. Army officer that is stranded in Afghanistan, just as "The Crunch" (a global socioeconomic collapse) takes place. Although he has been released from active duty, Andy has to make his way back to his family and to his fiancee in the United States. Doing so when all of the military and commercial airline flights have been grounded turns into an epic journey.

Mr. Rawles is requesting that everyone wait until October 4 (Tuesday) -- the book's release day -- before purchasing, in order to generate a "book bomb." This is the technique all you wonderful folks used when my book was released, and it worked to shove it to No. 66 on Amazon(!). Now let's push to do something even better with Survivors and get it to No. 1 !!

(Besides -- ahem -- if you purchase it through this link, I receive a small percentage of the sales price as an Amazon Associate -- ahem...)


  1. no amazon associate link to survivors - just an associate link to his original book patriots, you may want to edit post and add the intended link.

  2. I have read so many fictional futuristic novels, I honestly have lost count to their numbers!

    What I can attest to, is that I do not know of any other fictional writing, that has the pages packed with non-fictional practical, relevant, and life saving, survival strategies and tactics for preppers.

    If you have not read his Patriots novel, you are missing out on a vast resource of information in planning your preps!

    Catch up now, and order a copy of it as well for your prepping bookshelf.

    Support JW,Rawles, and his entire blog's FREE access to his volumes of "Rawlesipedia" resources found in the Archives link, which has a search feature, on his site by supporting his latest book.
    You not only will be entertained, but you may also be reading invaluable insights into our near future history of this nation.

    GodSpeed on getting the sequel to Amazon's Best Seller's List!

    Thank you posting this book bomb day release Patrice.
