In the Darkness, Anarchy Awakens

When a massive solar flare wiped out all modern technology across the globe, the small town of Abney, Texas, was thrown into chaos. Shelby Sparks and her teenage son, Carter, have found refuge, but Shelby knows she can't simply remain hidden forever. Carter is a type 1 diabetic in need of insulin—and Shelby will risk her life traveling to Austin to make sure he gets it.

Shelby's best friend and high school sweetheart, Max Berkman, won't even consider letting her make the perilous journey alone. Together, they manage to get to the capital—only to discover that while things are desperate in Abney, Austin has turned into an urban nightmare on the brink of anarchy.

Shelby and Max's search for medical supplies will lead them into terrifying territory, where the only thing more uncertain than finding what they need is the hope of making it out of the city alive.

In this second book in an eerily plausible, action-packed dystopian series, survival will be threatened and faith will be put to the ultimate test as a raging storm engulfs America.

Thanks so much for having me on your blog. I'd be happy to answer any questions about Raging Storm. Blessings!

I'm intrigued by the premise of this series. I did not know what Dystopian fiction was until I read about it on Vannetta's website. Did you find the second book in the series to be more or less difficult to write than the first one?

Thanks for the giveaway!

Thanks for the guest post with Vannetta Chapman. I have a copy of Raging Storm so I do not need to be entered in the giveaway.

I find the premise of the book very plausible. I take a medicine too that if I was every unable to get it I would probably not survive after a while. We have a group and we even talked about this med in case of a catastrophe too.
Vannetta - what do you think of preppers and have you seen any movies that you used in your book research? I am also fascinated that the Mormons believe in having a six month stock pile of dried food.

Hi Loraine. I would say the 2nd book has the most conflict--it's the middle of the disaster, but it also has its share of humor and hope.

Hi Marilyn, thanks for stopping by!

Maryann, that's such a good question. I think "preppers" have been treated very unfairly in the press. I was appalled at the things that I found as far as articles on people who spend any amount of time preparing. I have a sister who is Mormon, and yes they take preparation very serious. After all my research, I think that it's something we, as a church, can do to help our community to face any type of disaster.

Hi Connie, I was kind of fascinated by the idea from the moment that I read a NASA article on it. Not really in a gloomy-gus kind of way, but more in a "I wonder how people would rise to the occasion" sort of way. And I honestly do believe that we would.

Altogether plausible in an end times scenario.
