Are You Prepared?

Emergencies will come in many different forms, often when you least expect it.  They may require anything from a brief absence from your home to permanent evacuation. Each type of disaster requires different measures to stay safe. The best thing you can do for yourself and your pets is to be prepared. 

This morning, I was reading through various blogs and I discovered a blog post by Carole P. Roman. She shares a few emergencies she faced with her family and she offers valuable tips on how to prepare for an emergency. You can read all about it on her blog!  She was inspired to write the post after reading a blog post written by the author of Living Peacefully with Children

FEMA offers great advice for preparing for disasters. Their website is a great resource for people that want to get prepared.

In my upcoming book, Brood X, Seth and Lara  are at home the watching television when the news reports that a swarm of cicada (Brood Ten) are expected to overwhelm the entire Northeast. During a sweltering summer night, Brood Ten emerges and wreaks havoc with the electric grid, phone and cell service, wi-fi, food and water supply. Civilization as they know it is gone. Seth and Lara are unprepared and thrown back to the stone age in their own home with trillions of cicada trying to deposit their eggs and breed. 

See what happens when you read Brood X! Coming soon to Amazon!
