Sneak Listen to SHILOH RANCH

First, let me thank all of you for continuing The Blackout Series with me as SHILOH RANCH has been a huge success. In addition to hitting #1 Best Seller status in three genres, it has been firmly ensconced within the top ten post-apocalyptic fiction novels on Amazon, no small feat considering the substantial competition it faces. If you haven't purchased your copy, grab it here:

Also, I was proud to be awarded Prepper Fiction's Favorite of January 2017 award.

I want to thank my loyal audio listeners for their patience. When I released SHILOH RANCH nearly three weeks ahead of schedule, I knew that the audio listeners would be up and arms looking for the Audible version, and I was right, lol! It's not that the audio version is late, rather, the eBook was released way early. Promise!

The audio format of SHILOH RANCH, book four of The Blackout Series  has wrapped production and is now in the hands of Audible's Quality Control team. As soon as they give the green light, it'll go live and I will post an update on my Facebook author page.

In the meantime, enjoy a sneak listen to Chapter One of SHILOH RANCH.

THE BLACKOUT SERIES races towards its conclusion as HORNET'S NEST and DEVIL'S HOMECOMING are now available for preorder on Amazon.

This fast-paced post apocalyptic dystopian fiction series from author Bobby Akart (The Boston Brahmin series and the Prepping for Tomorrow series), has been hailed as a masterpiece of EMP survival fiction. Prepare to learn, as well as be entertained as The Blackout Series continues with HORNET'S NEST and DEVIL'S HOMECOMING.

HORNET'S NEST, book five in The Blackout Series, tests the mettle of our characters. Will one success lead to devastation for them all? Is it possible for an unlikely group of heroes to band together to defeat an evil which had plagued a small community for decades? And if they are successful, how do you build a world shattered by the devastating aftereffects of a massive solar flare?

In the final installment of The Blackout Series, DEVIL'S HOMECOMING, an unexpected turn of events deals the rebuilding effort a near deadly blow as the United States Government, in the form of a FEMA occupying force, descends upon Savannah. The FEMA battalions leader is hell-bent on revenge and he is proof that in a post-apocalyptic world, hell is empty and all the devils are here.

Watch for updates on these new releases as well as teaser chapters. To preorder both titles, follow these links:

SHILOH RANCH, book four in The Blackout Series, is now available on Amazon in eBook and print formats.

The strongest emotion of man is fear and ...
Fear of the unknown is the greatest fear of all.
Could you face fear head on?
Can you forget all those moments when you thought you wouldn't survive, but did?

The Ryman family weren't preppers and had no idea what prepping entails. But they learned quickly as a devastating solar flare was hurtling towards Earth. After the power grid collapsed, they experienced first hand that the advice handed down to Colton Ryman from his grandfather was sound -
Never underestimate the depravity of man.

Their neighborhood rapidly fell apart and it was no longer safe to remain in their home. Their only option was to bug-out for a safer location in rural West Tennessee - SHILOH RANCH, the farm of a long-time client of Colton's. After their perilous journey replete with highs and lows around every turn, the Rymans reached their destination only to face guns pointing at them from all directions.

Did they make a mistake? Should they have stayed home where familiar surroundings may have outweighed the threats closing in on them? Or have they become survivors? Perhaps, Madison Ryman said it best ...

I survived because the fire inside me burned brighter than the fire around me.

When does a Cyber Attack become an Act of War?

Pearl Harbor was one of the most tragic moments in American history. Japanese bombers unleashed a devastating surprise attack on a U.S. naval base in Hawaii on that seventh day of December in 1941, killing twenty-four hundred Americans and wounding another thirteen hundred. President Franklin D. Roosevelt called it a date that will live in infamy during his speech asking Congress for a declaration of war.

Sixty years later, another surprise attack killed almost three thousand people when Muslim terrorists flew two airplanes into New York’s World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon.


Today, the United States is in another pre-9/11 moment, with critical computer systems vulnerable to assault.

America is vulnerable to a cyber Pearl Harbor.

PREPPER SUPPLIES: Growing Your Own Food

On the October 6, 2016 episode of the Prepping for Tomorrow program, we’ll begin a month long discussion on topics of importance to preppers. Prepper supplies and the importance of sustainability will be discussed., including the topic of growing your own food. 

The process of gardening is the result of more than tilling, planting, weeding and harvesting. It is also the result of preparedness to overcome challenges such as location, pests and other unforeseen complications like unusual weather. Imagine the pressure a prepper will be under to produce a harvest after TEOTWAWKI when their life depends on it. After the SHTF, an ordinary vegetable garden becomes a survival garden.

Growing Your Own Food is Like Printing Your Own Money

I love that saying because it is true. It can also be modified to read growing your own food will keep you alive when the SHTF.
