Five months after the release of Alive for Now, I am ready to release the second book in the series, Survive for Now. Over those five months, I’ve really enjoyed writing the second book, but what I have enjoyed even more has been the reviews, comments, and ratings. Some of my readers have literally stunned me into silence with their wonderful compliments. Ed, the Chief, Kathy, and Jean have become real people to me because the readers of Alive for Now have made them come alive in their comments. I hope that everyone enjoys Survive for Now as much as I enjoyed writing it, and I can’t wait to start writing book three of The Infected Dead.
I started Alive for Now when my daughter asked me if I would like to join a writing group. The more I wrote the more I enjoyed myself. The next thing I knew, I had a book for sale on iBooks, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo. Then I was surprised to learn my book had made it to the Amazon Bestsellers lists in three countries, Amazon US, Amazon United Kingdom, and Amazon Australia.
Each milestone of sales is still amazing to me, but the best part by far is good reviews. If you had asked me before I started all of this, I probably would have said the money would be the best part. What I have learned is that I can still get choked up by a good review. I woke up to this review today from someone I don’t know, and it put a lump in my throat for an hour. Thank you to Lucy Brandon for making my day.

Loved loved loved this story!...Was seriously bummed when I finished it....I wanted it to go on....Immediately went to Amazon to find the sequel...but there wasn't one....hurry please...
Another favorite moment was when I heard from a husband and wife who both liked my book. I hope they liked my answers as much as I liked their comments about the book.
So, l hope my readers will take the time to say hello, because it means the world to me to hear from you and to know you liked my book, and by the way, I’m over 38,000 words into the second book. Bob
