A Second Bug Out Book

For the past few weeks, I have been busy completing the final revisions and material such as the bibliography for my latest book: Could You Survive?: 13 Deadly Scenarios and How Others Got Out Alive.  This is now complete and is in my publisher's hands for the final layout and production.  It is still scheduled for publication in February and I will post updates regarding the availability of it here.  I think many readers of Bug Out Survival will find the book entertaining and informative, but it is also aimed at the armchair reader who simply enjoys reading about how people have gotten out of some incredibly tight spots. 

Many of my readers here and readers of my book, Bug Out: The Complete Plan for Escaping a Catastrophic Disaster Before It's Too Late, have expressed an interest in more detailed information regarding the material presented in Part One of that book.  Since my primary goal in Bug Out was to present an overview of the many possibilities for bug out locations in the Lower 48 states, the material in Part One necessarily had to be condensed to fit into the format of a 300-page book while still allowing me to cover the locations in the eight regions detailed in Part Two. 

To address this I have now signed a contract for another book that will be a follow-up to Bug Out and will expand on one particular part of Part One.  I will announce the specific details of the contents at a later date. I will say that it covers one aspect of preparation that is lots of fun and I am really looking forward to writing it.  In addition, there may be a third related book in the works beyond that, which will allow me to greatly expand on certain aspects of survival preparedness that are usually overlooked. 

For the success of Bug Out, I am grateful to all the readers who have purchased the book and the many reviewers who have given it favorable mention on various blogs, websites, and on Amazon.  Bug Out has sold out of its first print run and my publisher has ordered more.  If you are looking for it, there are still many copies in various stores and online retailers and more are on the way if your favorite retailer is temporarily sold out.


  1. Congratulations on completing your second book! I knew Bug Out would do well and am glad to hear Part 2 is in the works.

  2. Way cool good news, I look forward to reading this one as well. February is a long way off . . .


    Have a great Thanksgiving, hope you are recuperating well.

  3. Scott, this is great news. I am looking forward to the new book, as well as the follow-up to Bug Out. Great stuff.

  4. Started reading your blog through Mayberry's site, knew you sounded familiar. I read Paddling the Pascagoula a few years ago. Anxious to read more.

  5. Looking forward to the new book - Bug Out was awesome and I have gotten a lot of friends to pick it up as well.

  6. Way to go! When the second book comes out, I'll be glad to do a post about it, such as the one I did for the first book.

  7. Wow!! So glad to hear that you are coming out with a second BUG OUT book.



  8. FINALLY got a chance to read this book, really enjoyed it. The shaded 'stories within the narrative' were especially good. I also bought BOV, looking forward to reading it this week.
