Secrets of Liberty Mountain - UPDATE - 68,500 Words

I'm a sixty-nine Disabled Vietnam veteran who has been writing Secrets of Liberty Mountain for the last fourteen months.

When I started my book, I wrote it as a throw-away. I've been a writer and a community journalist for forty years, and I always wanted to write a "dirty" story. To get it out of my system I wrote a dozen chapters and posted them online.

As a challenge, I decided to turn the genre upside down. I made my hero an elderly veteran with all the wisdom and bad plumbing which comes with age. To make matters interesting, I placed my main character in the impossible situation I could imagine. I trapped my old guy in a survivalist cult of all women. To my utter astonishment, readers loved my story and demanded more.

This book is my first work of fiction. So far my work-in-progress stands at 68,480 and has been downloaded more than 800,000 times on various websites including StoriesOnline.

I've just posted the 33rd chapter in the novel. The shit has finally hit the fan. The grid is down. Forever. What kind of world will rise from the ashes of the old as a new dark age falls across the land?

As always, I am looking for honest feedback from my readers. The comments and enthusiastic support of this community of readers have inspired me to do better. Franky, I could not have done it without your support. Thank you.

(READ STORY).

I owe a debt of gratitude to you, my reader, and to all the BETA readers, and volunteer editors who have helped me every step of the way. Your feedback has helped me keep my fantasy as "real" as a work of fiction can be.

When I started SoLM, I first posted the story as a throw-away, something I was sure no one would take seriously. To my utter astonishment, folks actually liked the story. It has thus far been downloaded well over a threequarters of a million times (including 134,000 times at SOL).

GREAT REVIEWS!

I got this review via email a few days ago from a grandmother in Iowa:

"What I found most interesting about this novel is that none of it feels contrived, even the sex scenes. You've created a sensual story that doesn't feel perverted. It's part of the story rather than the story being about sex if you get my meaning."

That along with several good reviews on Amazon:

5-Stars - A great read!

An amazing read that keeps you on the edge of your seat. The plot is well thought out and the characters are fully developed. Unlike most post-apocalyptic stories, this one (so far) doesn't involve war. Absolutely couldn't put it down.

5-Stars - A read for the ages.

An amazingly explosive world through the eyes of a disabled and homeless Vietnam veteran, when his life takes an unsuspecting turn. Dennis is adorable in the way he must adapt to an overwhelmingly unique lifestyle in the wintery mountains. Sexy, charming, erotically amazing. I love it. A great read.
