Slow Fall: Counting Down

The end of times may not emerge from the night like a thief creeping through the shadows, or rage with fearsome abruptness like a nuclear blast lighting up the night sky. Instead, it may lift its head far in the distance, glare directly into the sun, and hide from no one. It will crawl slowly forward, moving with absolute purpose, unyielding in its approach. The final bell will not ring for decades, but it will ring, and there will be no way to stop it.

Ray Breckford faces such a future. Within the routine of his very normal life, he finds himself immersed in circumstances in direct contrast to his personality. He is methodical and logical, appreciates structure and abhors turmoil. He sets goals and devises straightforward plans to meet them. He does so as an accountant for a local hospital, during a time when humans can suddenly and inexplicably no longer reproduce.

Mysteriously, all mammals face a barrier to conception. There is no clear cause for the dilemma, only speculation. Scientists and engineers explore theories in hopes of explaining the mystifying condition, but all efforts fail in offering an answer. People of the world are somewhat slow to accept the dilemma, but when they do, panic erupts.

Ray witnesses terror and confusion unfold as governments across the globe react to the crisis. Those with authority hope to maintain control over a population that begins to see extinction as their inevitable future. In hopes of stemming the chaos, restrictions are placed on the most common facets of life, and for a time, order is restored.

Ray, however, notices an alarming tension rising all around him, not only from the calamity but also from the strict regulations enacted to maintain peace at any cost. Decisions meant to protect the innocent grow beyond the scope of their original intentions. Policies initially designed to guard the welfare of certain citizens lead to even greater turmoil.

Hoping to gain enlightenment from disorder, Ray becomes entangled in a series of events which thrust him further into a tempest of unrest. As he searches for safety and sanctuary within the mayhem, he faces difficult questions regarding his role in the dwindling legacy of humankind. Ray does not seek the attention, but his unwillingness to ignore the plight of friends and strangers places him within a struggle for control and security. While he realizes his limitations in preventing civilization from entering the abyss, he attempts to save one small piece of humanity in hopes of grasping light for a darkening future.

Author's Note:

Slow Fall: Counting Down is an Apocalyptic Thriller. It is my first attempt at such a storyline and I must admit it is a rather strange tale. 

Zombie stories intrigue me, and I have talked often to my wife about zombie preparedness. Surviving the first wave is obviously important, but those waves will keep on coming, growing larger as well. I wanted to write an apocalyptic story along those lines, but lately, the zombie story has been done to death. (Forgive me for that, but I couldn't resist.) Instead, I tried to imagine an end of the world scenario which might cause the least amount of suffering. When I considered the idea of mammals failing to reproduce, I thought I might have found a way where humans could face extinction more gracefully. As I considered the circumstances, I realized "graceful extinction" was probably never going to occur, and thus, I had the basis for this story.

This book covers the first few months of just such a situation. It's possible it could grow into a series, but I need to gauge interest in the book.

As I have done with some of my other ebooks, Slow Fall: Counting Down will be available through on-line retailers such as Barnes and Noble, the Apple iTunes Store,, Google Play and Smashwords. The slight charge of $.99 should give me an idea regarding the reception of the story and whether it deserves additional attention in the future

I've tried to make the sample chapters and the full ebook of Slow Fall available in as many DRM free formats as possible. With so many new devices and software applications used for reading eBooks, it's difficult to ensure that all the formats work as they should. If you have any trouble with any of the formats, please contact me. I will do my best to fix the problem.

If you do enjoy Slow Fall, please let me know. I appreciate hearing from those who take an interest in my work. Thank you for your time. I know there are countless eBook offers out there. I am grateful you have made the effort to review this site.

If you have any questions, please contact me.
