From the Desk of John Rourke – January 12th, 2018


So here’s the deal: I am rewriting A Survival Story as a completely new book written in 3rd person and will be part of a trilogy. This will take an incredible amount of work thus the noticeable change to the posting schedule here. Some older posts will be being republished as well.

Writing a prepper-fiction book is quite out of my element. I have an experienced post-apocalyptic author assisting me and providing some guidance. Will it work? Time will tell but moving into the role as a serious author is something I am very excited about.

Although this is a new book with a new title the story will be based on the events of the original.

Companies continue to report wage increases and bonus – and Democrats still say Trump is not their President.

Most everyone has their “go to” SHTF gun. For some people, it’s a pistol. Some it’s a rifle. Some like a shotgun. For me? It’s an AR pistol which I call Venom. I like its compactness and firepower. Everyone’s situation is different.

So – what is your SHTF Go To gun?
