Interesting New Prepper Novel

TheBlackoutThe Blackout [Kindle Edition], by Stephanie Erickson is available today and tomorrow (May 28-29) for free download from Amazon. I just learned about it myself, so have not yet read it. I decided to go ahead and post a short notice about it anyway, since 1) it is well-reviewed, 2) it’s free, and 3) time is short for the free download.

I’ll update this post (in the comments) after I’ve had a chance to read it.
