Pillars in the Fall

Recommended Posts

Heads up, Pillars in the Fall, the prequel to the fiction book Against the Grain is out.


True to form of the first book, its another quick and entertaining read. The story itself I think is better written than AtG, and while it has the same feel and style, it is a slightly different story and it’s going to push some people. It’s darker and not everything is as clear-cut or how a person might hope and think they would act if they found themselves in similar circumstances.

Summary/blurb from Amazon:

Past the point of no return, the slide has started. It's time to shore up your bets and your boarders. There's only one problem, you are on the outside looking in.


A happy homecoming shines hope and light in an otherwise dismal time. Friends closer than brothers reunite, but when one of them returns from a long absence, he brings an unpredictable and volatile side that seems to be just itching to get out. And the timing could not be better for those erratic tendencies to have plenty of opportunities to be exercised.


This is a story of bad compromises. During the first stages of a severe societal collapse, how do you protect others from your own best friend, and also protect him from himself? During the ultimate breakdown of rules, laws, ethics and morals, how do you overcome this new side when it is so effective at getting you through the toughest of times?


In this, the prequel of the action packed novel Against the Grain, we meet a whole new host of characters... and get reintroduced to a few old favorites!


And here's the thread on this forum about Against the Grain:

Wally, if you read Against the Grain, you will like Pillars in the Fall. This tells the story only hinted at in Against the Grain and I was shocked by some unexpected revelations. There's a lot of action in here and some stuff that really makes you think about long term survival strategies as well.

Wrote a few more pages of notes for book three over the weekend. Lots of fun stuff for this last one. Might even end up being a little longer than the others too. Still leaving open the story path that Texas Bill wants to see it take.


Heck nows as good a time and place as any, does anyone have any gripes, inclusions or exclusions theyve always wanted in a story but never seen? Thats how these books came about, from my own gripes, so throw some out there at me and we'll see if any stick.

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon. This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
