Today is the day! And what is a Book Bomb you may ask? Its a day when those of us who have read the book encourage you to go buy a copy or three so that the book will reach one of the best seller lists at Amazon and get some recognition. I plan to buy three copies today: One for me and two to give away. W1CK is a stand alone prequel to Michael Bunker’s book, The Last Pilgrims. What that means is you don’t have to have read The Last Pilgrims to totally enjoy W1CK, but I think you would like it.
Clay just wants to get home. Six years ago, he moved to New York City after his wife and daughters were killed in a horrible automobile accident, and now, the day after Hurricane Sandy devastates the city and the tri-state area, Clay sets out on foot to escape both the city, and the prison of his old life there. What Clay discovers on his epic walk to freedom, will change everything… for everyone… forever.
W1CK is the story of a man who has had enough. Clay Richter is fed up and has a niggling feeling that things are not alright in the US of A. Hurricane Sandy has just hit and people are suffering. He leaves New York city for an upstate farm armed with his trusty backpack. The walk from the city to the countryside is filled with interesting people and situations. But the most interesting situation awaits him on the other side of a blizzard.
This is not a “prepper” story and it isn’t a “religious” story but it made me think of both my Bug Out Bag and whether or not it was really ready to go and my faith, if it is really ready to go. And the story brought up long forgotten ideas about a country that people my age learned to fear and suspect. The author used current events and recent books about the Soviet Union and its plans to create a fictional story that has the ring of truth. Americans for the most part are asleep when it comes to the USSR.
In W1CK, the Cold War starts to simmer.
Go on over to Amazon and pick up a copy for yourself. I don’t get anything for promoting this book, I’m not even using an affiliate link in this post. Its a good read and part 2 will be coming out soon.
