Thanks to the efforts of my agent, both Ulysses Press and Penguin books have reached separate agreements to make audio books of my novel “Patriots: A Novel of Survival in the Coming Collapse”  and my upcoming nonfiction book “How to Survive the End of the World As We Know It: Tactics, Techniques, and Technologies for Uncertain Times. “ These will be produced by Brilliance Audio, the nation’s largest audio book company. The CDs and downloadable MP3 files should be available sometime in 2010. I will post details as soon as they become available.
In other publishing news, Amazon.com now has the final cover illustration for my upcoming book “How to Survive the End of the World As We Know It ” on their web site. This 336-page non-fiction book is scheduled for release on September 29th. Be advised that Amazon is already taking pre-orders, but I’d greatly appreciate it if you’d wait to order until the “Book Bomb” Day, September 29th. By massing our orders on that day, I hope to make the book a best-seller, just as we did for “Patriots”  , back in April. That drove the book up to #6 in Amazon’s overall rankings, and attracted lots of media attention. That was also the impetus for the contract from Simon & Schuster for two “Patriots” sequels that will be released in 2010 and 2011. Many Thanks!
