GREY FOX by J.L. Bourne

GREY FOX is the most recent installment in J.L. Bourne’s noted  Day by Day Armageddon zombie fiction series. An e-short story, GREY FOX brings readers deeper into the Day By Day Armageddon world

A short note about the story from J.L. Bourne:

Time is a very fluid thing, no one really has a grasp on it other than maybe how to measure it. As the maestro of the Day by Day Armageddon Universe, I have the latitude of being in control of that time. I can adjust the slider either direction, moving the timeline back and forth along the continuum. This is one of the perks of creation, the benefit in constructing something (albeit small) from nothing. Sort of makes you wonder what the maestro of the universe is up to, no? You have again stumbled upon a ticket with service through the apocalyptic wastes, but this time the train is a little bit older, a little more beat up, and maybe a little wiser. Keep your doors locked.

About J.L. Bourne:

J.L. Bourne is an active duty military officer and and the author of DAY BY DAY ARMAGEDDON (September 2009), and its sequels, DAY BY DAY ARMAGEDDON: BEYOND EXILE (July 2010) and DAY BY DAY ARMAGEDDON: SHATTERED HOURGLASS (December 2012). He started out his Day by Day Armageddon series by posting handwritten installments of it on a personal website back in 2003. He had no idea he had even drawn in readers for a while until they started emailing him (there were no metrics back then).

On top of being an active duty military officer, Bourne also has a very active social media presence.

Post Hill Press - OBAMACARE, Miller

An Obamacare book like no other, OBAMACARE: HEALTHCARE APOCALYPSE not only lays out all of the core components of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act for readers, but also provides a detailed analysis of the long-term impacts this massive federal intrusion into healthcare will bring forth. Whether by intentional design or as the byproduct of bad law, Miller writes that Obamacare will tax the current predominantly employment-based third-party payor system to the breaking point, which will pave the way for full-scale government intervention in the form of socialized medicine. Obamacare will accomplish this feat under the guise of consumer protections. In OBAMACARE: HEALTHCARE APOCALYPSE, Miller brings to light that the real impact of Obamacare will be felt slowly over time as a series of delayed-implementation “time bombs” that will erupt with damaging consequences.
