State of Pursuit and Book Giveaway

One of the unexpected benefits of writing Outage has been discovering other authors that share my love of post-apocalyptic story-telling.  Summer Lane is one such author, and her new book, State of Pursuit, just released today.  

State of Pursuit is the fourth in the Collapse series by Summer Lane which starts with State of Emergency.  I had to read the first book as soon as I found it, because it's an EMP story with a fantastic female leading character.  

Her 4th book, State of Pursuit, is just as good.  It's a post-apocalyptic military adventure novel, with just the right amount of romance between main characters Cassidy and Chris.  The author has a real knack for writing dialogue as well as action scenes, and I'd say her newest book is her most polished yet.

Hop on over to Summer's blog where she's hosting a giveaway of six free dystopian, post-apocalyptic and mystery books (including Outage) and where you can get to know Summer better.  She is an amazing writer and person.  A huge congrats to her on her launch of State of Pursuit.  Go check it out today on Kindle or in paperback.


Cassidy Hart is alone.

Her Commander and the love of her life, Chris Young, has gone missing in action. A horrific battle with Omega has left too many good men and women dead, and Cassidy must bear the burden of leadership in the militia on her own.  But she's not about to give up.

With the help of her faithful friends - and former enemies - she will stop at nothing to rescue Chris and ensure victory for the militias in their fight against the all-powerful Omega forces.

The game has shifted.  This time, Cassidy is one step ahead of the enemy.

This time, Cassidy is in charge.



Here’s the thing that nobody tells you about being in love: 

It’s hard.

Anything good in life takes work, and lately, a lot of blood, sweat and tears. My relationship with Chris Young has always been defined not just by mutual attraction, but by the fact that we were brought together in the middle of a post-apocalyptic warzone.

Flowers and dinner dates? Never had those.

Firefights and battle fatigue? That’s more like it.
