Series: Blood, Brains & Bullets #1
A near future vision of a Zombie Apocalypse involving a man and his dedication to ensuring his children and community survive while trying to maintain order and structure within America. The world has come to an end after the super flu spreads globally and emergency vaccines have been tampered with by shadow government forces. Now nuclear conflagration rages across the middle east while zombies comprise most of those left, with humanity bringing in a distant 5% or less.
Jay is a dedicated self styled player who get's lucky more often than not and has a soft spot for children. As one of those survivalist they always talk about on TV he's better prepared than most when the shit hits the fan. He will strive his utmost in the coming days ahead to save his community while melding close friends, survivors and salvaged military units on the run from assignation forces of a secret shadow government dedicated to a New World Order. But it isn't over yet for Jay's a Marine and he has a few tricks up his sleeve which he fully intends to use while accumulating as many girlfriends as possible.
WARNING - CONTAINS GRAPHIC VIOLENCE AND STRONG SEXUAL CONTENT.
Okay, that aside I decided to look at the book from a different angle. I am not the target audience so I decided to focus elsewhere.
The writing was good. Really good. I'd consider this popcorn fiction or maybe even venture to say that it is erotica for men. The writing was smooth and easy to fall into. The other characters were well developed, each individualized and sturdy.
The antagonist wasn't as present as I'd hoped. Yeah, yeah, there's zombies but I mean beyond the zombies. Sometimes the antagonist is briefly given a few paragraphs or is shifted to a different, unassociated character. This is where I felt the story strayed. The primary focus it seemed, to me, was Jay attracting his harem of big breasted, beautiful women and what he'd do to each of them. This is all in the name of saving the children, of course. ;)
I wish there'd been more story and less sex as I expected more of a horror. Also, the story had strayed a bit as I'd mentioned above. This is why it's only three stars.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Served twice in the USMC who incarcerated me in Beirut, Iraq, Panama, Somalia and a few other places until I was barely discharged for good behavior. Currently the owner of a few businesses that are actually making money in this economy and also a licensed firearms instructor, just to keep my hand in the game.
I am also one of those evil Preppers and have all the stuff my characters have with the exception of an underground bunker. LOL. I am the bug in type and will stay and protect my community and the children, for they are our future. Do I expect anything to happen? Nope! But it costs me little to prepare, and it's actually fun.
I am me! I have fun and I'm rarely serious. About this series I wrote and am writing. I have no illusions that I'll be the next Stephen King. I do it because I simply have to, and honestly I'm having fun while not taking myself too seriously. I've found I really enjoy writing, whether or not I have the skills necessary. Everything in my books actually works and my scenario's depict how it would probably be in any real life end game scenario, depending on a great many factors of course. This I know from my own experiences and those of my closest friends who number doctors and psychologists to name a few. I also know this because I'm a history nut and history definitely repeats itself with great frequency.
I'm approachable so if you enjoyed my book and feel like dropping me a line go right ahead. I will respond to each and every one. I've met a great many of my fans now and all were a pleasure to talk to. I also love criticism. My feeling on that, is it helps me become a better writer. I can only improve, is my thinking.
Take care and God Bless!
