Sorry to disappoint, but Book Five should be out in March. 

You might be interested in the ten-book prepper novel series called 299 Days.  I, like, wrote it and stuff.  Prepper Press is publishing it.  Seriously.  Check out www.299Days.com.

Yes, disappoint.

I'll be watching for Kindle release March 1. You did say March. ;-)

Regardless, Heavy G is a role model. Rock on dude!

Hey, guys, I finished a intensive and thorough edit of Book Five last weekend.  My editor saw it and is going bananas.  She loves it. 

I am really, really proud of Book Five and think you guys will love it.  The thorough edit - and the chapters we moved from Book Six into Book Five to make it a better value - will be worth the wait. 

Thanks for your patience.

Thanks for the update G!  Looking forward to it.
Build it or buy it, start it up and try it, maybe even fry it.  Otherwise you'll never know if it works.

Heavy G - its hard to love something we are not reading.
I think we have been very patient with you up to this point. I'll try to hold off the masses - but i'm sensing a mutiny is coming:)

Is that why there has been an ammo shortage lately?

The government wanted us to believe it was all about them - but the real reason for ammo shortages is because Heavy G has been slacking and the masses are getting fired up. Well get the next book - by force if necessary. Our patience is running thin.

Hey Glen,

Regarding the movie version... Is there a thread for picking the actors and actresses for your characters?

So far, I'm thinking Sam Elliott for Chip and Dianne Feinstein for Nancy R.

Thanks,

G;

I love the books, all of them so far.

I think one thing you should consider releasing soon though (cause it is needed!) is a single book containing The Preparation and The Collapse.  It is a great single volume how to get into prepping without being as heavy as a non-fiction read.  It also has a great cliff hanger for getting people into the series. 

I have considered getting people The Preparation as a hook into prepping but there is a some really good prepping material in The Collapse as well.  Please consider it!

When I pictured Nancy while reading the books, the face of Ellen Barkin would pop in my head.  :)

Oh, that's funny.  Good choice.  I kept picturing Betsy Markey, my former congressclownwoman.  They look a lot alike and Nancy and Betsy hold the very same views.

:)  I'll have to do a search on her; I've not heard of her, but sure she is a good choice.  In addition to Barkin, the other face that would pop in my head when Nancy would be talking was that of Dolores Umbridge from the Harry Potter movies/books.  If you've ever seen the movies, you remember her very condescending and smarmy tone.  So many choices!!

Thanks in advance - unless you say the series sucks.

So I tried my first ever Wikipedia entry:  User:Jbritely/299 days 
Please help me.  I need help with the formatting and more information about the books.  Especially those of you who did reviews.
If there is something else you want me to do, just let me know.  The next few weeks are kind of busy but I'll do what I can.
