A Place Outside The Wild

Post by DanielHumphreys » Mon Oct 24, 2016 9:18 pm

I lost my old account info in a computer reformat and never did get my password reset e-mails . . . the new account setup I did a couple weeks ago just came in so perhaps there's some oddness going on with my e-mail or something. Anyhoo, just wanted to take the opportunity to get the word out about my book. It's been out for about six weeks now and I am just astounded by how well it's done, and thought I would take my opportunity to throw it out for y'all.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LZ4MI85

Some of my favorite books are the ones where a person has to survive using their wits, or build something out of nothing -- Hatchet, Dies The Fire, and Farnham's Freehold are some of my particular faves. That was the germ and genesis of where I started from. Recently a lot of the zombie fiction I've been reading is very fatalistic, and there isn't a lot out there of what sort of society people would put back together, after everything falls apart.

So, to whit, the bulk of the story takes place a little over 8 years after the initial outbreak. I also tried to put a different spin on the origin and cause of the plague that, hopefully, is unique. All told, Wild is ~180,000 words, or 626 pages in paperback. So it's definitely not one of those overpriced multi-part novellas that keep popping up on Amazon. ;)

Give it a whirl, I think you'll like it. And whether you do or not, I'd greatly appreciate a review.

Thanks!

Semi-pro book blogger review. With a quote that made me LOL.

http://www.alteredinstinct.com/2016/10/ ... ld-by.html

There's something of a wealth of detail when it comes to military hardware - you'll find detailed descriptions of the guns on show for starters, and their loadout in terms of bullets, choice for penetration, types of scopes and so on. Whether that sways you for or against, be aware there's plenty of that. A lot is in context though of these hardened fighters and the tools they use to stay alive.
