The Final Day: When Love Of Country Becomes The Driving Force That Unites All Citizens Against Tyranny

The Final Day: A Novel (A John Matherson Novel) by [Forstchen, William R.]

The Final Day by New York Times best-selling author William R. Forstchen gives a chilling glimpse into an America ripped apart by both an EMP attack and a government hell bent on surrendering parts of the nation to foreign countries.

With our nation still at odds over the result of the presidential election, military historian Bill Forstchen offers something for both sides of the political aisle in a riveting plot that has citizens united in an attempt to preserve a beloved America. While The Final Day is third in the riveting John Matherson series, the first has already been optioned for a movie by Warner Brothers.

Bill Forstchen makes a dynamic guest. Please read the following press release and let me know if I may schedule an interview with him, or forward a copy of the book for a review from you. If you’d like to run this story, I’d be happy to send you .jpgs of the author and the book cover. Thank you.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Final Day: When Love Of Country Becomes The Driving Force That Unites All Citizens Against Tyranny

“Like its two predecessors in the Matherson series, this new novel entertainingly blends folksy and sophisticated, small-town nostalgia and sharp futurism…a thoughtfully rendered, richly detailed investigation into the ‘What if.'”
—Kirkus Reviews, on The Final Day

Black Mountain, NC – Fans of John Matherson and his fierce brand of patriotism were thrilled when The Final Day, third in the series by New York Times bestselling author William R. Forstchen, was recently released by Forge Books.

Months before publication, Forstchen’s One Second After was cited on the floor of Congress as a book all Americans should read. Film rights to that novel have already been optioned by Warner Bros. The riveting story of our nation’s struggle to rebuild itself after an electromagnetic pulse plunges the country into darkness, starvation, and death was followed closely by the acclaimed One Year After, continuing the Matherson saga.

The Final Day picks up after John Matherson and his community defeat the designs of the alleged federal government. Now they have returned their attention to restoring the technologies and social order existing prior to the EMP attack. When the government announces that it is ceding large portions of the country to China and Mexico, General Bob Scales is sent to confront Matheson. The Constitution is no longer in effect, and what’s left of the U.S. Army has been deployed to suppress rebellion in the remaining states.

General Scales is John’s former commanding officer and closest friend from prewar days. Where do his loyalties fall? Might he be the crucial turning point in the quest for an America that is again united? When news breaks that members of the federal government knew an EMP attack was coming long before it hit, the government might get exactly what it fears: revolution.

William R. Forstchen is the New York Times bestselling author of One Second After. He holds a Ph.D. in history from Purdue University, with specializations in military history and the history of technology. Forstchen is currently a faculty fellow and professor of history at Montreat College, near Asheville, North Carolina.

Uganda Christian Orphanage Building Fund Raiser

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Uganda Christian Orphanage Building Fund Raiser

Houston, TX – Helen Cook, owner of PrimeStar Publicity and Public Relations, has set up a page on GoFundMe.com for the sole purpose of raising $25,000 US dollars to purchase land and start construction on a building to house fifty Ugandan orphans and a small staff of four.

Even though the Light for Orphans Ministry (LFOM) must be registered and licensed with the government of Uganda, they receive no support because they are a Christian ministry.

Their daily needs – food, shelter, medical, clothing and education – are provided by a small group of dedicated donors, about eleven, here in the US and one in Australia.

The “LFOM family” is currently housed in a rented facility that was slated to be a motel, in the small village of Jinja, Uganda, East Africa. However, they have already outgrown the facility that they moved into less than two years ago when their numbers were less than forty.

It would be so wonderful for them to have a permanent home; one where they can continue to grow without facing the need to have to move out once again.

If your heart is moved to do so, you can make donations to the building fund at: https://www.gofundme.com/light-for-orphans-building-fund?ssid=819941954&pos=1

Maybe you would like to become a regular donor for the monthly needs of our beautiful family. If so, you can make donations to Light for Orphans Ministry (LFOM) c/o Helen Cook, 2668 Hwy. 36 S. #127, Brenham, TX 77833.

If you would like more information about LFOM, feel free to contact me either by phone at 903-654-0938 or email, helencook53@yahoo.com.

1 John 3:17: “But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?”

Acts 20:35 “In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

If You Give A Donkey The White House: Fast Relief For Political Tension

Teaneck, NJ – As this election year moves towards a close, some of us may feel like we’ve had enough politics to choke a horse. Political satire is one viable option. Since the stone ages, whenever there is organized government, political satire is not far behind. David E. Levine’s colorfully illustrated book, If You Give a Donkey the White House (Dog Ear Publishing), will have right-leaning readers in hysterics from beginning to end!

If You Give a Donkey the White House, modeled after Laura Numeroff’s vastly popular children’s series If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, is riddled with wit and loaded with sarcasm. Levine’s book blends political humor into a meaningful story with a clear and indisputable message: “People need to be careful where they put their trust because even one well-intentioned act can create a chain of events that leads to disastrous results!”

The story begins with a boy and his dog opening the gates of the White House to let in an arrogant donkey, believing it’s a good idea. “Unfortunately, once the donkey gets in,” says Levine, “he’ll want to expand the government and in no time at all, the boy gets taken on a misguided adventure that ruins his life.”

What makes bashing bureaucracy so popular? If we went back to the oldest example of political satire around 400 BC and asked Aristophanes, there’s a very good chance that his answer would be the same today: It’s entertaining, and it’s a satisfying outlet that provides a good chuckle at the expense of government blunders.

David Levine lives with his wife and four children in New Jersey, where he finds ample opportunity to make fun of donkeys.

The Remnant – When A Tattered Page From An Outlawed Bible Inspires Hope For A New Beginning

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Remnant – When A Tattered Page From An Outlawed Bible Inspires Hope For A New Beginning

Los Angeles, CA ―The year is 2069; the Apocalypse came and went – but when Jesus didn’t show up, many survivors are left fearful and wondering…

The cataclysmic war left a totalitarian government ruling the world and they’ve outlawed the Bible and banned all forms of religion, banishing any who persist in practicing religion to work camps across the globe. In this riveting, action-packed plot, devout Christians are forced into hiding with only a piece of a ripped-out page from the Bible, showing a scrap of the Sermon on the Mount, as their beacon of hope.

Both inspiring and satirical, The Remnant follows the long and dangerous journey of Grant Cochrin, an escapee of a work camp, and his family as they journey in search of an authentic Christian community in the lawless wilderness of North America. Having so far encountered nothing but strange religious communities along the way, they are about to start their own community when they are ambushed by human traffickers.

When World Federation security forces intervene at the last minute, the Cochrins expect imprisonment but instead come face-to-face with an unthinkable choice. As even more bizarre events unfold in this mystifying and challenging world of spiritual and physical dysfunction, there nevertheless remains a very real sense of hope.

As Wolverton masterfully entertains readers, his thought-provoking story also encourages them to freely question religious institutions and organizations. Unlike any other book on the shelves about Christianity in a dystopian future, The Remnant inspires, makes us laugh, and scares us … but all the while reinforces the belief that Jesus is with us no matter how dysfunctional we are.

Monte Wolverton is an award-winning author, syndicated editorial cartoonist and an associate editor of CWR magazine. He is an ordained minister and holds a MA from Goddard College in Vermont. He lives in southwest Washington State with his wife, Kaye.
