AFTER: THE ECHO
(Book #2 in the After series)
It’s six weeks after the shock.
The smoke on the horizon has diminished, and Rachel Wheeler and her two traveling companions head toward the mountains where Rachel’s grandfather Franklin has built a survivalist compound.
However, the strange mutated people known as Zapheads seem to be changing from bloodthirsty killers into a force far more menacing. A secret military installation holds the key to rebuilding civilization, but Franklin doesn’t trust their intentions.
And the Zapheads are adapting to the new world faster than the human survivors, who must fight for their place in a future that may have no room for them.
I believe the writer only creates half the story, and that you complete it by bringing your imagination, experience, and heart to the tale. I am happy to share the journey with you.
I’ve written more than 20 novels, about 80 short stories, four children’s books, some comic books, screenplays, and a couple of non-fiction books, as well as five collaborations with J.R. Rain. Many of my tales are based on supernatural legends from the Southern Appalachian Mountains, and I also write mystery and suspense thrillers that are most often compared to the work of Stephen King and Dean Koontz.
I’ve also published Liquid Fear and Chronic Fear with Amazon’s Thomas & Mercer imprint, as well as a number of audiobooks and foreign translations. I love hearing from you, because you’re the reason I do this, so let’s connect! More at http://www.hauntedcomputer.com.
Scott was also gracious enough to write a guest blog post back in November, where he told us a little bit more about himself, the background of his books, and anything else he cared to share.
