And desperate to put her breakup behind her, she agrees to one last face-to-face to return belongings to her ex. But when they’re nearly killed by an out-of-control car, she’s horrified when the nightmare of her relationship takes a backseat to an eruption of violence.
In the blink of an eye, an EMP attack wipes out the nation’s power and the world grinds to a stop. Surrounded by chaos, Cass is torn between tending to the injured or escaping her seething ex.
It doesn’t take long before panic and violence erupt on the streets of Portland. Out of options, Cass has no choice but to race home, hoping to outrun a looming ice storm. Can she make it to safety before experiencing the wrath of the bitter winter storm? Or will she find herself the victim of far more than the elements in a town thrust into bedlam?
From Sam J Fires comes the brand-new End of Days series, a post-apocalyptic EMP survival thriller featuring flawed, complex characters and adrenaline-fueled action adventure. Perfect for fans of Ryan Schow, Grace Hamilton, Kyla Stone, and Jack Hunt.

Review Quotes

“Surviving Chaos: End of Days Prequel” by Sam J. Fires
This is a short fast-moving glimpse of how quickly society can disintegrate. Under stress the thin veneer of civility disappears very quickly.
As soon as I completed it, I began “End of Days Book 1” and look forward to reading the whole series.

Picked this prequel as a free book and really enjoyed it. I became invested in the main character, and will definitely be ordering the next book in this series.

No lights. No power. No help.

During the coldest winter on record, an EMP attack wipes out the nation’s power and cripples the country.

As the city spirals into lawless chaos, investigative journalist, twenty-six-year-old Cassandra Drews is forced onto the dangerous streets of Portland to begin the long walk to her parents’ home in Oregon.

But hypothermia and starvation aren’t the only dangers Cass and her rescue dog, Daisy, face on their perilous trek. Danger is stalking them, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. Help comes in the form of troubled ex-marine Isaac Winters, who slips back into soldier mode with the city’s collapse.

Now, the trio must work together in a fight for survival as they race to escape the city before violence, or the bitter wintry storm can claim them. Do they have what it takes to make it out alive? Or will they be crushed by the brutality of the unforgiving cold?

Grip of Fear is book 1 in this enthralling post-apocalyptic EMP survival thriller. If you enjoy tales of ordinary folk thrown into harrowing situations, you’ll love the End of Days series!

When I saw a Kindle for the first time I thought, they would never take off. I was adamant I was not going near them. I was never going to buy a Kindle. I loved my paperbacks…. However, I moved and there was only one cabinet for my books and so I had to choose, which books, I was going to give away and which series of paperbacks I was going to keep on my books shelf. And I had a lot of books in boxes ready to go to charity.

So, you can see where I’m going with this now. My first Kindle which was a Christmas prezzie from hubby had over 100 books on it in the first week. and I suddenly became an avid reader again.
My poor paperwhite the original Kindle, sadly died on me last year and I have no intention of getting another as I have the ebook Apps on my laptop.
So, I’m a converted paperback reader. The only paperbacks I read now, are my own… Well, I have got 15 of them. lol

What is your choice, ebooks or paperback?

What I don’t like and I’m pretty pissed off about. Is that ebooks were invented to save the reader and publisher money. No paper, no printing cost, no distribution. But then the authors and publishers got greedy. Can you believe The JK Rowling’s last book, cost more to buy as an ebook, than it did to buy a paperback. That is so wrong and not what ebooks were invented for.

An Apple A Day Keeps Amazon Away!

So we all know Amazon as the leaders in the marketplace. And it’s we little indie authors that made that happen when they created the Kindle. We sent Amazon up in a rocket. However, we have no legal standing with them. They can remove our books, change book categories, take away our reviews and they don’t even inform us. What we should be doing is using Amazon as a bookshelf only and direct our readers to the many other outlets.


Today it’s all about Apple – the iPad, iBook. Who doesn’t own an iPad or iPhone? I don’t but I know there are millions of you worldwide that do.


So here is a selection of books where you can purchase and read from your iPones and iPads.
Enjoy.

Ever since one disastrous night during World War 2, a third of the world’s population has carried the potential to “roll into power.” No one can predict which few will actually go through the change, and there’s only one, tragic certainty: rolling before the age of forty is a death sentence.

Passing into middle age might be uneventful, marked only by extra candles on your birthday cake, but it might lead to becoming a human fireball, drowning a city, or teleporting into outer space.

Rough Passages presents the stories of five people forever changed and con

nected by the powers that disrupt their lives:

ales of Crime & Violence are a compilation of many of my short, and not so short stories.

The ideas and inspiration are many and as varied as each of the individual stories themselves.

Although all the tales in these books are about committing crime, or being involved in acts of violence, the real story is that of the people involved, why and how they came to be in this position, whether they were forced or coerced, willing participants or victims themselves.

The stories in this collection of three volumes have underlying factors, deeper meanings, twists and stings to savour and enjoy.

I hope you enjoy reading these tales as much I have enjoyed writing them.


12 chilling and though-provoking tales that will stay with you for nights to come.

Are you ready to delve into the dark side?

A Flash Of Horror is a collection of short and flash fiction from my two collections Heads & Tales and Undressed.

The year is 1477 B.C.E. and history is about to change…

When Hatshepsut is crowned as Pharaoh, she grooms her daughter, Neferure, to take the place of heir, rather than Thutmose’s infant son from another woman. Neferure, though young, is still older than the boy who should by all rights be king.

The future of Egypt rests in the hands of a single woman, the most powerful woman in the ancient world. Can Pharaoh Hatshepsut’s people accept her unorthodox reign, and her plans to usurp the men’s place as rulers of a Kingdom, decreeing that only women are suitable leaders?

Love is waiting around the next curve…but trouble is never far behind.

Desperate to shake memories that stalk him like feral beasts, Richard Winters points his motorcycle toward the highway and twists the throttle—destination anywhere but New York. By the time he puts his kickstand down, he’s in Summitville, North Carolina, where, with a few annoying exceptions, one being an outlaw MC, he’s left alone.

Except there’s one woman who catches his notice and resurrects the protective instinct that cost him everything once before. A woman with stunning green eyes that haunt his dreams, and facing prejudice that makes him want to rise to her defense. But that would mean doing the last thing he wants to do—lower his guard.

Noémie Bellerose has heard times are changing, but in 1968 North Carolina, she and her younger brother are second-class citizens. The new bartender in town is temptation on two wheels, but in what world could the two of them connect? Not this one.

Despite their best intentions to avoid trouble, trouble finds them both—and so does an attraction that won’t be denied. But can love bloom where it is planted, or will they be forced to resort to desperate measures…before hate cuts them down?

A QUESTIONABLE SUICIDE… A DETECTIVE’S SUSPICION… AND A DESPERATE HUNT FOR A SERIAL KILLER BEFORE MORE VICTIMS ARE FOUND.

New York Police Department’s Sixteenth Precinct in Manhattan is under siege by the flu, and Detective Nick Larson and his partner, Detective Victor Sacco, are up to their armpits with work overload. The captain’s cigar is seriously chewed, and everyone is working around the clock. To complicate matters, on a personal level, things aren’t going smoothly, either. Laura Howard, the woman Nick loves, is also having issues with a psycho twin sister who is doing everything to ruin Laura’s business and her life.

Then Nick’s captain assigns a new case, a suicide. From the moment Nick steps on scene, however, something doesn’t feel quite right, especially when, upon investigating the case further, the supposed suicide looks more and more like an actual homicide. Immediately, Nick’s instincts kick into gear, but rev into overdrive when similar, questionable suicides pop up around the area. And with the way things have been going lately, it would just be Nick’s luck to have a serial killer on the loose.

Set in New York City, Hanging Softly in the Night is a story of murder, mental illness, determination, dedication, perseverance, and, ultimately, justice.
