One Book Away From an Episode of Hoarders

I enjoy horror, thrillers, urban fantasy, steampunk, science fiction, mystery, speculative and dystopian fiction, humor, and paranormal romance (I like more plot than smut in my fiction, although I'm definitely not a prude) among others. about me In October, every October, I marathon 100+ horror movies so I'm not as active that month or November either (NaNoWriMo). My rating system is as follows: 1 star - I'd like my time back, thank you. 2 stars - I didn't care for it but I don't feel cheated. I'm not likely to subject myself to any of this author's other works. 3 stars - I enjoyed my time in the story and will more than likely read another book by the author some day. 4 stars - I really enjoyed this story and will definitely be interested in anything else the author writes. 5 stars - The real world didn't exist while I was reading this. I will likely maim anyone who interrupts me while I'm devouring everything in this author's bibliography

Extinction Point (Extinction Point, #1) - Paul Antony Jones At first, this book kinda reminded of a story that I started writing for NaNoWriMo a few years ago. What happens when the entire earth’s population dies? Birds, bugs, dogs, people... One survivor, searching for others.

My story, never finished, is just sitting unused on a zip drive. And there are no aliens.

This one is better. We have the usual worries. Food, water, first aid, how long will the power last...
Our MC, is a reporter in NYC when the “blood rain” falls. The strange precipitation kills every sentient creature it comes in contact with. We don’t even see any aliens until after the halfway point, and then they aren’t what you expect. There is a lot of alone time for our character, and not much conversation, being as this is a global event.

I admit that its not perfect. Its self published so there are a few things that could certainly be polished by a good editor but there was nothing so wrong with it that I was ever drawn out of the story. I’m definitely interested in reading the next book.
