October is the Month of Max

Outspoken Max

He’s baaaack!

Your favorite character, Max Thompson is back in the new book, DESOLATION (coming very very soon). Those of you who have read STONE AGE, know him well. Those who haven’t read STONE AGE… Okay, what are you waiting for? Go read it! It’s only $2.99 for crying out loud or free if you have Kindle Unlimited. Sorry, I digress.

Max is that iconic character everyone loves. He’s a prepper, but he’s got a greater purpose than just protecting his own life from the apocalypse; he seems determined to protect the other main characters of STONE AGE, the Kings.

REVEAL: In DESOLATION, you will find out much more about why Max goes to such lengths to protect the Kings and why he made so many mistakes in preparing for the end of the world.

Max is one of those people who doesn’t care what others think about him and often speaks his mind. He doesn’t drink, but that’s only because he wants to be ready for whatever comes his way. He has no problem cussing, but he prefers to zing people more eloquently. However, he is mostly plain spoken and loves to tell people what’s what.

Because Max returns in DESOLATION, I thought it would be fun to usher in each day with Maxisms. That is one or two-liners from Max that need no explanation. So, for the rest of this month, almost every day, on Twitter (@ml_banner) I will post a Maxism under hastag #maxism. You’re not following me on Twitter? No problem, I will post them in the comments of this article as well.

Have your own Maxism? Post it in the comments. Let me know something Max would say.

Today’s Maxism comes from DESOLATION (after the Einstein quote):

“I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.” ~ Albert Einstein

Al got it wrong – World War IV would be fought and won by whoever finds all the leftover guns.

~ Maxwell J. Thompson
