A quick update on my writing projects:

I've finished writing the second sequel to "Patriots: A Novel of Survival in the Coming Collapse". It will be titled: "Founders: A Novel of the Coming Collapse". Like "Survivors", it will be a contemporaneous sequel to "Patriots", but this one will focus more on the latter stages of the War of Resistance. This novel is set mainly in and near Fort Knox, Kentucky. It describes how U.S. Army Captain Andy Laine infiltrates the Provisional Government's New Army in the midst of the resistance war, and the foundation of a new Constitutional government. The novel also details the cross-country trek of Ken and Terry Layton, and introduces a new character: Joshua Watanabe, a U.S. Air Force Missileer, stationed at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana. "Founders" will be published by Atria Books (a division of Simon & Schuster) It is scheduled for release in November, 2012.

Meanwhile, I've just begun writing "Rawles on Guns and Other Tools For Survival." (A non-fiction book.) It is scheduled for release in late 2013 or early 2014 by the Plume Division of Penguin Books--the same company that publishes my international bestseller "How to Survive the End of the World As We Know It.

OBTW, I heard from my editor at Atria that "Survivors" is already in its fourth printing even though the book is not yet a month old. Here are the details:

1st:      29,000
2nd:     6,000
3rd:     12,500
4th:     5,000
Total in print (as of 31 October, 2011): 52,500

Note that the third and later printings include corrections to a few typographical errors. My apologies for letting those slip by!
