More on Serpent Road

“Fans of near-future dystopian fiction in which isolated warriors fight against a tyrannical U.S. government will welcome Bourne’s exciting sequel to Tomorrow War….For readers into this subgenre, this will go down as smoothly as a cold beer on a hot day.”  (Publishers Weekly, on TOMORROW WAR: SERPENT ROAD)

National bestselling author J.L. Bourne has created “another riveting, ultra-realistic example of dystopian fiction at its best!” —Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author of USE OF FORCE on TOMORROW WAR

“A nonstop action thriller that explores the dark side of ‘what if our entire digital and economic grid collapsed.’ An unforgettable novel.” (SCOTT McEWEN, #1 New York Times bestselling co-writer of AMERICAN SNIPER and TARGET AMERICA, on TOMORROW WAR )

“Captivating!” (Kirkus Reviews, on TOMORROW WAR)

Q: Will SERPENT ROAD be available on Kindle, Nook, Audible, and in physical format?

Q: What order should I read the TOMORROW WAR series?


(Note: the word “REDACTED” used in the title and throughout the series is part of the fiction experience. There is no “non-redacted” version).

Q: When does SERPENT ROAD take place?

A: Not long after the events of TOMORROW WAR 1.

Q: In what format is SERPENT ROAD written?

A: First person journal format, just like DAY BY DAY ARMAGEDDON, BEYOND EXILE, GREY FOX, TOMORROW WAR and GHOST RUN.

Q: Why does your e-book cost more than the physical copy, that doesn’t make any sense and it’s not fair!

A: Sorry, I am humbly the author of the story, I don’t control the pricing or distribution. Pricing is controlled by the publisher. If I were to guess, I’d say the publisher wants to prioritize the sale of physical copies over electronic.

Q: How can I get an autographed copy of your books? I’m a huge fan!

A: Thank you, I’m lucky to have you as a reader. Unfortunately, I don’t give out my personal address and I don’t have time to go to the post office every day to answer the call for autographed copies of my novels. I plan to eventually get a P.O. box and give it out to my readers, but that’s a few months off. Every now and again, I pop into books stores and “stealth sign” my stuff. Keep an eye on my social media for details (buttons at top of page).

Q: Who are you?

A: I’m J.L. Bourne, retired military officer and national bestselling author.  More on me here.
