BDS Book Festival 7: The Perseid Collapse Series

It is time to shake things up with Backdoor Survival Book Festival 7.  This week we are going to dispense with the interview and head almost directly into the giveaway.  Steve Konkoly, the author of The Perseid Collapse series of post-apocalyptic fiction, is giving away two sets of personally signed copies of all three books.  That means two winners!

You might recall that Steve was part of the Spring 2014 Book Festival and again as part of the Summer 2014 Book Festival.  He is an interesting guy and you are going to want to go back and read his two interviews.

The Perseid Collapse Series by Steve Konkoly - Backdoor Survival

His latest book in the series is Point of Crisis. It is another page turner featuring Alex Fletcher and his tribulations following a lethal pandemic and the subsequent collapse of society. While normally it takes me weeks if not months to get through a book, I got though each book in the Perseid Collapse Series in a matter of days.  Expect some late nighters under the covers with these.

With that introduction, let us move on to the giveaway.

The Book Giveaway – The Perseid Collapse Series

Two complete sets of the three books in the Perseid Collapse Series (The Perseid Collapse, Event Horizon, and Point of Crisis) are up for grabs.  They will be personally signed by Steve. To enter the giveaway, you need to utilize the Rafflecopter form below.

The deadline is 6:00 PM Pacific next Tuesday with the winner notified by email and announced on the Rafflecopter in the article.  Please note that the winner must claim their book within 48 hours or an alternate will be selected.

The Final Word

It is always a pleasure to welcome back authors who have participated in past Book Festivals.  Because Steve is a boater, as I was for many years, I have a special affinity for both him and his books.  Of course the fact he lives in beautiful Maine, the east coast equivalent of Washington State, does not hurt either.

Good luck and congratulations in advance to the winners.

Enjoy your next adventure through common sense and thoughtful preparation!

Spotlight:  Point of Crisis (The Perseid Collapse Post Apocalyptic Series Book 3)

The epic post-apocalyptic series continues… In the aftermath of the brutal attack on his family compound, Alex Fletcher embraces his rapidly expanding role within the New England Regional Recovery Zone (RRZ). Fueled by a limitless drive to protect his family and a rekindled sense of duty, he enlists the reluctant aid of a local militia commander–to ease the public’s fears of a federal government takeover.

As Captain Fletcher digs deeper into the government’s plans, he starts to question the federal government’s intentions–and ability to stabilize the situation in New England. With the region’s critical infrastructure destroyed and the nation’s electrical grid crippled by a suspected EMP attack, he foresees a human cataclysm, with several hundred thousand desperate refugees marching further north through Maine.

The bad news doesn’t end there.  Alex discovers that Eli Russell has rebuilt his militia–with the intention of hastening the Regional Recovery Zone’s downfall. Obsessed with stopping the deranged psychopath that attacked his family, Alex scours the back roads and rural towns of southern Maine to find him–unaware that Eli’s plans are far more personal.

Alex will face his most difficult decisions ever, as the world unravels in the aftermath of the “event.”

Plus: The Preppers Guide to Food Storage

  1. Don’t know what happened to my post — will try again. Given some advance warning of a collapse we would obtain additional supplies of water and ammo, top off our fuel (for our vehicles and propane tanks), go to the bank to get a larger supply of cash and the contents of our safe deposit box, print out some copies of info on the computer, strengthen the security of our home, purchase any additional gardening and food preservation supplies we might need (already have a good supply of seeds). If it seemed that the electrical grid would be down, we would obtain some more batteries, charge up items we have, and set up the solar panels we have to be available for later charging/powering. It would be a busy 2 days!

  2. With the advance notice of a collapse, we would be increasing our supplies of ammo and water, topping off fuel for our vehicles and propane tanks, going to the bank to supplement our cash supply and remove items from our safe deposit box, printing out some paper copies of info on the computer, and strengthening our home’s security. In addition, we would purchase additional items we might need for our gardens (we already have a good supply of seeds) and for preserving foods. It would be a busy two days!

  3. Gather family, supplies, and all essentials together. Depending on the event, we would either fortify and prepare to bug-in, or hit the road ASAP while there’s still a chance to bug-out.

  4. YES! Would love a new read- right up my alley. I go over the what ifs daily with the fam…maybe a new book would give them a break from me!

  5. PRAY. And then liquidate all assets, buy what else I may need. Then head for a relative who lives in a more under the radar location, and has access to streams, lakes and wildlife in a pinch.

  6. I would check my preps and see what I need if anything, get what money I can out of the bank, fill up the car with gas, go to grocery store and get the things I need to add to my preps if there’s anything I need, contact my family

  7. I’d check the generator and make sure all cords were ready, then get more gas and fresh foods if able to get into the stores. If the weather’s cold, I’d make sure there was ample wood in the house, get out some candles to save on the generator, then hope for the best.
