Excerpt from One Second After

If you didn’t get a copy of Sour Cherry Turnover yet, it was released on Friday and you can download or order your copy now! Although it is book #7 in the Auntie Clem’s Bakery series, each book can be read as a stand-alone story, so don’t let that stop you.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

Several times, this cover has caught my eye and I have stopped to read the blurb for One Second After, by William R. Forstchen. So when it came across my radar yet again, I decided it was time to read it! I just started it yesterday, so I’m not very far along yet, but so far it is very engaging and I can see the characters facing some increasing challenges as the story goes on! It already has me thinking about what our lives would be like if we suddenly lost all electronics and communications systems.

Strange, John thought. Here I am, a soldier of twenty years. Saw some action, but the only casualties were the Iraqis, never my own men. I was trained to handle things, but when it comes to my daughter’s diabetes, a damn aggressive type 1, I’m always on edge. Tough, damn good at what I did, well respected by my men, and yet complete jelly when it comes to my girls.

William R. Forstchen, One Second After

New York Times best selling author William R. Forstchen now brings us a story which can be all too terrifyingly real…a story in which one man struggles to save his family and his small North Carolina town after America loses a war, in one second, a war that will send America back to the Dark Ages…A war based upon a weapon, an Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP). A weapon that may already be in the hands of our enemies.

Months before publication, One Second After has already been cited on the floor of Congress as a book all Americans should read, a book already being discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a truly realistic look at a weapon and its awesome power to destroy the entire United States, literally within one second. It is a weapon that the Wall Street Journal warns could shatter America. In the tradition of On the BeachFail Safe and Testament, this book, set in a typical American town, is a dire warning of what might be our future…and our end.

Tell me what you think!
