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!

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.
