Today, January 14, 2012, Jeff Horton is being featured at Jeanz Book Read N Review, hosted by Sandra "Jeanz" Keys. Not only does Sandra review Jeff's first book, The Great Collapse, but she also conducts a very informative interview with him.
Sandra had this to say about the book:
"The Great Collapse is a very thought provoking book, could you live without electricity and batteries? Do you realise that water stations use computers/electricity to get the water to your tap? Its the unseen/unnoticed electricity uses that we would all miss the most. Sure you may live near a river/lake but would you know how to purify the water to drink it safely? Could you hunt and kill animals to eat? how would you survive with little medical care? There's no central heating to keep warm or air conditioning to keep cool. What about there being no police force any more as there's no communications network left.... its literally every man, woman, and child for themselves. Would you stay in your home? How would you get food? Would you travel to the rural areas with rivers and lakes and water? Would you survive?This book deals with these many questions and even more. It follows certain main characters and their efforts to in some cases fight their way back to their families and try to get to a safe place before the real madness begins!"

About The Great Collapse
Series: Survivors of the Pulse
Author: Jeff W. Horton
Print and E-book
Publisher: Tate Publishing
The Great Collapse is an apocalyptic novel set in the not-too-distant future. When a powerful electromagnetic pulse (EMP) and a massive solar flare bathe the Earth in energy, the result is the permanent loss of modern technology across the planet. Survivors learn how to survive and then to thrive in their new reality.
As I did research for my first novel, The Great Collapse, and my second novel, The Dark Age, I was astonished to learn how vulnerable our national infrastructure and our civilization itself are to powerful electromagnetic pulses and solar flares. In 2008 a report requested by Congress and was completed by the EMP Commission. It confirmed that the threat of a single nuclear warhead detonated high in the atmosphere somewhere around Kansas was real, and that it could potentially take out the United States' national power grid.
