You’ve reached the end of The Union Creek Journal. We all survived!
I’d like to say, “thank you” to everyone who has followed along as The Journal wound its way, like its namesake Union Creek, through the twists and turns of the Johnsons’ lives in their post-apocalyptic world. I hope you enjoyed The Journal and, perhaps, even learned a thing to two. If you look for them, you’ll find lots of tips and ideas for survival in any sort of difficult situation. They’re like Easter eggs, only slightly hidden and just waiting to be found.
I’d also like to thank those who helped keep me on the straight and narrow path of correct grammar, spelling and technical detail. There are several of you. Perhaps chief among my “editors”, Karen, you sent me an e-mail nearly every day with some sort of correction. As always, thanks for your help.
And now to the future … there will be a sequel to The Journal. It’s already started. Stay tuned here for updates. I plan to take a little time off before I write the rest of the sequel. The daily publishing schedule of The Journal has taken its toll on a few areas of my life that will soon receive some much-deserved attention. After that, back to the grindstone. The sequel must be finished!
For those who are interested, the sequel to The Journal will be delivered a little bit differently. It will still be available for free in daily installments. (Of course, you’re always welcome to make a donation if you feel so inclined.) In addition to its free availability in daily installments, the sequel to The Journal will also be available in its entirety for a fee once the first few daily entries are published.
More forward looking statements … The Journal will be published in its entirety for Kindle (available through Amazon), Nook (available through Barnes & Noble) and as a PDF – most likely in that order. As of yet, Glenn Beck has not responded and no other “top shelf” publisher has expressed an interest in publishing a paperback version of The Journal. Several of you have expressed an interest in a physical copy of the book. If I am unable to secure a publisher, I will most likely utilize a publish-on-demand service to deliver the book in paperback.
Be ever vigilant,
Toby Asplin, Author: The Union Creek Journal
