New Hit Series: Jurassic Jail by William Alan Webb

Horde Writer Hits #1 Down Under!

A big congrats to Horde writer William Alan Webb - his SF thriller Jurassic Jail (Time Wars Book 1) recently hit number 1 in Australia.

Here's the blurb:
In the Jurassic, nobody cares if you scream.

Future America is dangerous and bankrupt. The interstate highways are littered with the rusted hulks of ambushed cars and trucks, and only Mad Max would dare travel the back roads.
When an arms race with Russia and China to develop time travel for military purposes achieves success, the body count skyrockets as both patriot and enemy try to hijack the new technology. Like the Manhattan Project and Operation Overtime before it, such a project attracts the best and the brightest as well as the worst and the psychotic.

But not everyone has given up on the rule of law. In Tennessee, Fayette County D.A. Pete Dance wants to prosecute the murder of a man whose fossilized remains turn up after a series of devastating earthquakes. The problem is that the victim is still alive.

When the violence starts, it doesn’t stop until the final whirlwind of teeth and claws and lasers.

The first spinoff series from William Alan Webb’s immensely popular series The Last Brigade is described by one critic as “…Spectre agents chasing Fast and Furious through Jurassic World,” while another reviewer added “…with a heavy dose of Harry Bosch for good measure.”

“After the heart-pounding finale, you won’t see the shocking ending coming. Guaranteed to keep you awake at night.”

I am actualy in the middle of reading this right now. It's a very action-packed time travel story. This is a spin-off from his best-selling Last Brigade series, but you don't need to have read that series to enjoy this book.

Jurassic Jail (Time Wars Book 1) is free for Kindle Unlimited subscribers. If you want to see if subscribing is right for you, can get a Kindle Unlimited 30-Day Free Trial.

Review: How to Survive an Active Shooter by Jacquelyn Lynn

Practical Guide in Today's World

I just read this book - How to Survive an Active Shooter: What You do Before, During and After an Attack Could Save Your Life (Conversations) by Jacquelyn Lynn.

Here's the blurb:
Do you know what to do if someone starts shooting?

The number of active shooter incidents--that is, when someone with a firearm is attempting to kill others in mass numbers--is on the rise. Knowing what to do before, during and after such an attack could save your life and the lives of others.

Find out:

What you should do when someone starts shooting
What you can do if escape isn't possible
Why it's dangerous to keep your cell phone with you
What a kill box is and how to avoid being in one
How to defend yourself against an active shooter
Why playing dead can get you killed
What weapons, other than firearms, attackers are using
How to protect a house of worship
What you should do before and after law enforcement arrives

In this completely updated and expanded Conversations book, Jacquelyn Lynn interviews a terrorism and security expert who provides those answers and more.

This is an interview that Ms. Lynn conducts of a anti-terrorism and security expert, someone who gave a similar briefing to their church, who asked to remain anonymous. Based on the answers and advice, the person being interviewed is indeed an expert in the field.

The book gives simple, practical steps and principles to keep in mind. It points out that our culture has, to some extent, trained basic situational awareness and self-preservation out of us, and gives us pointers on how to unlearn our bad security habits and re-learn good ones.

I think this is an excellent book for anyone to read. It's a sad reality that any of us may, at any time, be in a situation of sudden and unexepected violence. Reading this gave me a sense of preparedness. Not just for a possible active shooter scenario, but for any type of unexpectedly violent scenario.

New Release: Mutiny! by David Vining

New in David Vining's Fiction Series

David Vining has a new short story collection Mutiny!: A Collection of Short Stories.

Here's the blurb:


It's easy, isn't it? Pushed far enough, a son will turn against his father. Pushed hard enough, old friends will turn against one another. Driven to the edge, young people will try to overthrow whole systems without understanding why they stand to begin with.

Who will win? Who will lose? What will happen when it's all over?

This is his third short story collection. The previous one was A Boy and His Satellite which has a theme of space exploration.

The blurb reads:
Take five adventures through space and time to explore exciting new vistas! See the inside of a cargo ship's engine rooms! Explore the hallways leading up to a hyperspace gate! Get mauled by the crazy denizens of a generational ship!

All this and more!

By the way, I am currently enjoying his first story collection, A Light in the Darkness, and will review soon!
