You are in a committed relationship, married or involved exclusively with one another. You thought everything was glorious—or, at least as glorious as it gets. All relationships have some rough spots. But now it seems that you are always fighting. Or he just doesn't act like himself anymore. He doesn't like his job. He wants a sportier car. He says you and he have grown apart. He wants something but he doesn't know what. All relationships have their difficult times, but when a previously sensible man morphs into an angry stranger, the difficulties compound. Does your man say he is no longer "in love" with you but his reasons, if any, are vague at best? Is he trying to reinvent himself as a younger, hipper guy? Is he looking for an elusive "something" that he can't define? Have you twisted yourself inside out in an attempt to please him, but with no success? Maybe it's time you stop trying to change yourself and focus on the real cause of his conduct. If this is new behavior for him and he is between the ages of 35 and 50, your man is blazing a trail through midlife—and he is probably having a crisis. But how do you know for sure? And if it is a crisis, what can you do about it? A midlife crisis can devour a relationship. It may be devouring yours.

They never saw it coming. The most technologically advanced missile defense system in the world ... Thousands of eyes, both human and artificial intelligence trained on the Axis of Evil - North Korea and Iran. The one direction they didn't look, was up. Nuclear Armageddon hangs over America like a mighty sword as The Lone Star Series continues with book two, BEYOND BORDERS. American political leaders failed to heed the warnings as two bullies of the world unite. North Korea and Iran - the Axis of Evil - bring the battle to American soil. Most of the country is without power and the new President must decide whether to retaliate and risk escalation of hostilities, or focus on recovery to minimize loss of life. Through careful, prudent planning and protection of their power grid, the state of Texas emerged relatively unscathed from the EMP attack. But what now? New borders are defined. Americans will try to cross them. Texans will defend them. Author Bobby Akart masterfully intertwines historical fact with plausible fiction in this post apocalyptic EMP thriller, BEYOND BORDERS. The Lone Star Series is a thought-provoking, gut-wrenching look into a post apocalyptic country devastated by nuclear destruction. Would you be ready to make the tough decisions to protect your family and survive? AUTHOR'S NOTE REGARDING PG-13 RATING The Lone Star Series does not contain strong language.
It is intended to entertain and inform audiences of all ages, including teen and young adults.
Although some scenes depict the realistic threat our nation faces from an EMP attack and nuclear destruction, and the societal collapse which will result in the aftermath, it does not contain graphic scenes typical of other books in the post-apocalyptic genre. I believe more of our young people need to lead a preparedness lifestyle. Studies show that our millennials do not have any of the basic survival skills. By writing this series free of vulgarities and gratuitous sexual innuendo, I've intended it to be suitable for everyone. Thanks.
