Ya' lives by the sun, ya' dies by the sun. Life is always at a turning point . . . when faced with a certain death . . . would you be willing to seize the moment . . . and do what it takes to survive? Know this. You'll never know where the bend in the road might take you. The new dystopian, post apocalyptic EMP fiction series from author Bobby Akart (The Boston Brahmin series and the Prepping for Tomorrow series), has been hailed as a masterpiece of post apocalyptic EMP fiction. Prepare to learn, as well as be entertained as The Blackout Series continues with TURNING POINT. In book one of this new post-apocalyptic survival fiction series, 36 HOURS, the reader was provided a glimpse into the rapid decline of society once word of the catastrophic solar flare racing towards Earth began to spread. Book two, ZERO HOUR, thrust our characters into the perils of a post apocalyptic world. At Zero Hour, an EMP caused by a massive solar flare left America in darkness. The Ryman family, who weren't preppers, applied common sense, logic, and a will to survive to their decision-making as they faced their death, their neighbors, and the depravity of man. Now, in book three, TURNING POINT, the characters face a life altering decision - should we stay or should we go? The oldest and strongest emotion in man is fear, and the strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown. Will American's flee the urban centers, the proverbial golden hordes, for the countryside? Will it be safer than the cities? TURNING POINT will lead the Ryman family into a complex, inexplicable world where danger lurks around every bend. This new post apocalyptic EMP fiction series will continue with the release of SHILOH RANCH, in late 2016. Note: This book does not contain strong language. It is intended to entertain and inform audiences of all ages, including teen and young adults. Although some scenes depict the realistic threat our nation faces from a devastating solar flare, and the societal collapse which will result in the aftermath, it does not contain graphic scenes typical of other books in the post apocalyptic genre.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO if a voice was screaming in your head - GET READY . . . for a catastrophic event of epic proportions . . . with no idea where to start . . . or how, or when? This is a true story, it just hasn't happened yet. A new dystopian, post-apocalyptic fiction series from six-time best-selling author Bobby Akart (The Boston Brahmin series and the Prepping for Tomorrow series). The characters depicted in The Blackout Series are fictional. The events, however, are based upon fact. This is not the story of preppers with stockpiles of food, weapons, and a hidden bunker. This is the story of Colton Ryman, his stay-at-home wife, Madison, and their teenage daughter, Alex. In 36 Hours, the Ryman family and the rest of the world will be thrust into the darkness of a post-apocalyptic world. A catastrophic solar flare, an EMP--a threat from above to America's soft underbelly below--is hurtling toward our planet. The Rymans have never heard of preppers and have no concept of what prepping entails. But they're learning, while they run out of time. Their faith will be tested, their freedom will be threatened, but their family will survive. An EMP, naturally generated from our sun in the form of a solar flare, has happened before, and it will happen again, in only 36 Hours. This is a story about how our sun, the planet's source of life, can also devastate our modern world. It's a story about panic, chaos, and the final straws that shattered an already thin veneer of civility. It is a warning to us all ... never underestimate the depravity of man. What would you do when the clock strikes zero? Midnight is forever. Note: This book does not contain strong language. It is intended to entertain and inform audiences of all ages, including teen and young adults.

Genre: Fiction

Deadly outbreaks of diseases make headlines, but not at the start. Every pandemic begins small, subtle, and in faraway places. When it arrives, it spreads across oceans and continents, like the sweep of nightfall, killing millions, or even billions. BE PREPARED TO GET VERY, VERY PARANOID. A new post apocalyptic medical thriller fiction series from author Bobby Akart (The Blackout Series, The Boston Brahmin series and the Prepping for Tomorrow series). The events depicted in The Pandemic Series are fictional. They are, however, based upon historical fact. _______________________________________________ IN BEGINNINGS, book one of The Pandemic Series, a deadly strain of the plague bacterium has been introduced across the globe by ISIS terrorists who are waging the mother of all wars - the final jihad. Dr. Mackenzie Hagan, a disease detective and epidemiologist at the CDC-Atlanta and Nathan Hunter, an off-the-books operative for the mysterious Project Artemis within the Department of Defense, join forces to both identify the disease, but also to locate its source. In THE INNOCENTS, book two of The Pandemic Series, ISIS terrorists continued to wage the Final Jihad, infecting innocent people around the world. The highly contagious form of the plague has been genetically modified - to be the perfect killer. In LEVEL 6, book three of The Pandemic Series, the pandemic has hit a brick wall, but not because it's burned itself out. Rather, it's running out of victims. Social distancing is the only way to avoid a gruesome fate. Unfortunately, in a dystopian world where resources are scarce and scavenging is a way of life, every moment away from where you live could result in your death from either the disease, or your fellow man. This is an ingenious, inventive post-apocalyptic thriller about the threats we face from a global pandemic, and the use of infectious diseases by terrorists as they wage jihad around the world. Drawing on his unique talent to place the reader in a post-apocalyptic world, Bobby Akart delivers an explosive page-turner that has you wondering - will there be a last patient? Note: The Pandemic Series does not contain strong language. It is intended to entertain and inform audiences of all ages, including teen and young adults. Although some scenes depict the realistic threat our nation faces from a worldwide pandemic, and the societal collapse which will result in the aftermath, it does not contain graphic scenes typical of other books in the post-apocalyptic genre. I believe more of our young people need to lead a preparedness lifestyle. Studies show that our millennials do not have any of the basic survival skills. By writing this series free of vulgarities and gratuitous sexual innuendo, I've intended it to be suitable for everyone. Thanks. _______________________________________________ BOOKS IN THE PANDEMIC SERIES: BEGINNINGS - Available Now THE INNOCENTS - Available Now LEVEL 6 - Available Now QUIETUS - Preorder now for August 15 delivery _______________________________________________ SPECIAL DEDICATION Finally, the Pandemic series is dedicated to the disease detectives, the shoe-leather epidemiologists of the CDC's Epidemic Intelligence Service, who work tirelessly to keep these deadly infectious diseases from killing us all.

"A different sort of post-apocalyptic series." Imagine you won the lottery the same day everyone else went bankrupt - then had to collect your winnings in the worst part of town. "In cash!" When the lights go out, seemingly for good, Captain Jordan Hughes quickly discovers being stranded far from home on a ship with working generators and a cargo of ten million gallons of irreplaceable fuel isn't exactly a low profile position. Faced with rising crew discontent, and surrounded by worsening violence ashore, things can't get much worse - until FEMA flexes their muscles. As the remains of federal government becomes increasingly corrupt and self-serving, Hughes joins a ragtag band of sailors, farmers, preppers ex-Coast Guardsmen, and dissident soldiers in an effort to re-unite his crew with their families and use remaining resources to rebuild a devastated society.

"A terrifyingly realistic, prescient new series ... which can only be described as prophetic." - G. Michael Hopf, best selling author of The New World Series All Empires Collapse Eventually and America is No Exception. From best selling authors Bobby Akart with Steven Konkoly, The Loyal Nine is a gripping novel of an America teetering on the edge of economic and societal collapse. With social unrest sweeping the country, Europe on the brink of war and the U.S. economy under siege by foreign nations, a new threat emerges.

As the collapse events escalate, enter The Loyal Nine - direct descendants of the Founding Fathers, a modern day Knights Templar whose mission is to protect America, and the republic, from those who would inflict tyranny upon her.
