After: Milepost 291 – Nook


When massive solar flares wipe out the technological infrastructure and kills billions, Rachel Wheeler sets out across the Appalachian Mountain wilderness in search of her notorious grandfather’s survival compound.

Rachel is separated from her traveling companions and is captured by Zapheads, violent mutants who are gathering in packs and collecting dead bodies while mimicking human behaviors. Then she undergoes startling changes herself, as her friends are hunted by a rogue military platoon that wants to impose its own law and order in the world of After.

Can Rachel and her fellow survivors make the dangerous journey to Milepost 291 and evade the Zapheads long enough to form a new society and preserve the human race?

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I love Scott’s writing style. Since coming across one of his short stories in Cemetery Dance’s Shivers VII, I’ve been hooked on his work. I’m slowly working through all of his published stories, and loving every minute of it. Do yourself a favor…get this story! I think you’ll get hooked too!


An excellent addition to the story thus far, I didn’t want it to stop. There’s really nothing not to like with book 3 or the series as a whole, well, other than Scott is only one man and can only write so many books, so fast, waiting for the next installment can be rough!


The non-stop action kept me on the edge of my seat.

Sign up for my Tao of Boo newsletter for giveaways, free books, and announcements of new releases:

I believe the writer only creates half the story, and that you complete it by bringing your imagination, experience, and heart to the tale. I am happy to share the journey with you.

I’ve written more than 20 novels, about 80 short stories, four children’s books, some comic books, screenplays, and a couple of non-fiction books, as well as five collaborations with J.R. Rain. Many of my tales are based on supernatural legends from the Southern Appalachian Mountains, and I also write mystery and suspense thrillers that are most often compared to the work of Stephen King and Dean Koontz.

I’ve also published Liquid Fear and Chronic Fear with Amazon’s Thomas & Mercer imprint and McFall with 47North, as well as a number of audiobooks and foreign translations. I love hearing from you, because you’re the reason I do this, so let’s connect! Learn more about my work at

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Scott Nicholson and ENT appreciate it.
