About the Book:

Practical Prepping: No Apocalypse Required is a light-hearted, instructional look at practical readiness concepts that nearly anyone can embrace--without seriously interrupting your life or draining your bank account.  This isn't a book about ditching the suburbs for a heavily defended, self-sufficient compound in the mountains. We explore practical first steps you can take to prepare for the disasters you are most likely to experience. Few people want to spend an inordinate amount of time and money preparing for something that is unlikely to happen. Neither do we! No Apocalypse Required to read this book. Randall S. Powers and Steven Konkoly offer a layered, foundational approach that can be tailored to your circumstances and motivation level. We think you'll be surprised by how little time, effort and hard-earned cash you'll need to put into Practical Prepping: Exclusive ten-page Pandemic Primer included! Written by Steven Konkoly, author of The Jakarta Pandemic, the Pandemic Primer outlines a simple, no-nonsense strategy to approach a pandemic emergency. Take the first steps to protect your family from an outbreak of enterovirus, Avian Flu, Swine Flu, or Ebola.

About the Author: 

Steven Konkoly graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1993, receiving a Bachelor of Science in English Literature. He served the next eight years on active duty in various Navy and Marine Corps units. From leading Visit, Board, Search and Seizure (VBSS) operations as a boarding officer in the Arabian Gulf, to directing Close Air Support (CAS) as a Forward Air Controller (FAC) assigned to a specialized Marine Corps unit, Steven's "in-house" experience with a wide variety of regular and elite military units brings a unique authenticity to his writing. His first novel, The Jakarta Pandemic (2010), explored the world of "prepping," well before television and books popularized the concept. Hailed as a "grippingly realistic" family survival story, The Jakarta Pandemic introduced thousands of readers to the unfamiliar concept of "survival in the suburbs," motivating many of them to take the first steps to better prepare themselves for a major disaster. His recently launched series, The Perseid Collapse, continues Steven's legacy of engaging (and informative) post-apocalyptic (SHTF) fiction. Steven lives with his family in coastal, southern Maine, where he wakes up at "zero dark thirty" to write for most of the day. When "off duty," he struggles to strike a balance between a woefully short sailing season and unreasonably long winter.
