As most of my readers here are aware, I’m in the final stages of writing my first book, Prepper’s Home Defense. I’ve been posting little snippets from the manuscript on Facebook for a little while now and most of them have been pretty well received, aside from the occasional flame war which is to be expected, I guess.
While my editor and I are still hashing out a few things related to chapter order and such, I thought some of you might be interested to see the Table of Contents, at least as it stands right now. Understand that the TOC as presented below is subject to change prior to printing.
