About the Book:
America is under attack, in the epic, post-apocalyptic sequel to "prepper themed" bestseller, The Jakarta Pandemic. 2019. Six years after the Jakarta Pandemic; life is back to normal for Alex Fletcher and most Americans. Appearances can be deceiving. An undercurrent of paranoia and fear still runs strong below the surface; the collective angst spawned by 28 million American deaths forever stamped into population's psyche. On August 19, 2019, an inconceivable "event" will unleash a darkness over the United States. A human darkness with a vast appetite for chaos and violence. Alex Fletcher will wake to this new world, thrown headfirst into an impossible journey. His skills and preparations will be put to the ultimate test, in a brutally hostile landscape, where the forged bonds of friendship and family remain the only true constant. Author's note: The Perseid Collapse is the first book in The Perseid Collapse Trilogy, and chronicles the first 48 hours "post-event," as the characters navigate a hostile landscape to reach their destinations. Event Horizon, book two in the series, picks up where book one ends, completing their arduous trek and unveiling a harsh, new reality for Alex Fletcher.
About the Author:
Steven Konkoly graduated with merit from the U.S. Naval Academy, receiving a Bachelor of Science in English Literature. He was one of sixteen graduating Ensigns selected for the elite Naval Special Warfare program (SEALs). 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), introduced readers to the world of "prepping," well before it became over-popularized by television and books. Hailed as a "grippingly realistic" family survival story, The Jakarta Pandemic motivated thousands of readers to consider "prepping" and take steps to ready for a major disaster. His recently launched series, The Perseid Collapse, continues Steven's legacy of engaging (while informative) prepper/survivalist (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.
