Omnibus Edition Released

The Strengthen What Remains omnibus edition 

The Strengthen What Remains omnibus edition 

The Strengthen What Remains omnibus edition is scheduled for release on August 26. This ebook only edition will include the three novels, Through Many Fires, A Time to Endure, and Braving the Storms. Also included is the novelette, Nightmare in Slow Motion and the yet to be released novella, The Long Way Home, described above.

At the time of this writing the final price has not been set, but the plan is to save readers money over buying the books individually. A pre-order page will be created soon.

The Long Way Home Released

The Long Way Home by Kyle Pratt

The final book in the Strengthen What Remains series is the 20,000 word novella, The Long Way Home. The story will be released on July 15th, but is available for preorder on Amazon and Smashwords, and will soon be available on Nook and Kobo.

Five cities had already been decimated by nuclear terrorism when Trevor Westmore sets out on a mission to bring Sue, his pregnant daughter-in-law, back to the relative safety of the family farm. He also hopes to find his daughter Lisa and bring her home. But, almost immediately upon finding Sue, in the suburbs of Seattle, terrorists detonate another nuclear bomb and the two must flee amid the chaos and fallout. 

Nightmare in Slow Motion Released

My latest release can best be described as a “sidequel.”

Sidequel isn’t a real word, not yet anyway, but it’s the best way to describe Nightmare in Slow Motion, my just released 12,000 word novelette in the Strengthen What Remains series. This story unfolds at the same time, or alongside, the first chapters of Through Many Fires.

Braving The Storms Release

Braving the Storms, book 3 in the Strengthen What Remains series, releases on December 18th. 

In the first book, Through Many Fires, nuclear terrorism strikes the nation’s capital and six other American cities. In the second book, A Time to Endure, society continues to unravel, and civil war threatens the divided and economically-crippled land.

Now a new and even more lethal problem emerges. A swift and deadly flu epidemic sweeps out of overcrowded FEMA camps and strikes the nation with horrific results. Caden Westmore struggles to keep his family and community safe, while others use the plague to advance their own military and political agendas. Caden must succeed, but how can he, when both the epidemic and chaos attack his hometown and family?

National Novel Writing Month

From: November 1, 2015 at 12:00am

To: November 30, 2015 at 11:59pm

Location: Worldwide

I’ll be taking part in National Novel Writing Month, shortened as NaNoWriMo (na-noh-ry-moh), this November. NaNoWriMo challenges participants to write 50,000 words of a new novel from November 1st until the deadline at 11:59PM on November 30th. That’s about 1,666 words every day of the month. I’ve written that much in a day before, but not every day for a month. If I take my birthday and Thanksgiving off, I would have to write 1,785 words a day. It’ll be fun!

Last year I totally failed to make my goal. This year I'm going to try again and complete the second books in a new series. More about that later.

Also, during the month of November, I’ll be posting updates on my blog and Twitter.

Southwest Washington Writers Conference

Date: September 12, 2015

Time: 9:00am to 4:00pm

I will be attending and, possibly presenting, at the Southwest Washington Writers Guild annual conference on the Centralia College campus.

I’m a member of the Southwest Washington Writers Guild and have helped with organization and spoke at the conference last year.

This conference is particularly fun because it is so close to home and I know many of the attendees.

It looks like a fun day of networking with fellow authors and readers.
