Survivors by K'Anne Meinel

What would you do after the last world war? Would you survive?


For some, the world would end with the dropping of the bombs.  For others, a select few, it would present an opportunity to show their true mettle.  Those who will take on the challenge to live without, make do, and subsist on, are the survivors.

Jodi was one of the few.  She knew what was coming.  She read the signs, and she had friends in low places who kept her informed.  She bought a cabin in the middle of nowhere, fixed it up, and warned her closest friends and family that the time would come to abandon the big cities, to hide and seclude yourself for the safety of your family and everyone closest to you.

Krista was her partner, her best friend, and her wife at a time when states didn’t recognize same-sex marriage.  Krista coped with her mate’s compulsions by recognizing that indulging her was the best way to maintain a harmonious union.  After all, they could afford it.  Little did she realize that Jodi was destined to be the savior of them all.

Finding that things were much worse than everyone had speculated didn’t surprise Jodi.  But it would forever alter her family’s world view and transform them into something they hadn’t realized they were destined to become…SURVIVORS!

Sample text:



Krista looked up at the captain’s walk and saw her girlfriend disappear around the far side of the incongruous structure atop the two-story log cabin they had built.  A short time later, she watched as an antenna slowly rose on a thick, telescoping pole above the fifty-foot height of the tower roof.  Jodi had insisted on building this tower a few years ago, saying it would give them a fantastic view, but it looked odd above their two-story cabin.  She had been right.  It did provide them with a fantastic view of the river trees, but it also looked out of place in the backwoods of Wisconsin.  It was more suited to a lighthouse on the cape, but she just laughed off the jokes and enjoyed their view.  It was designed to look like the corner of a fort, and its three-hundred-sixty-degree view was awesome.  Now, she watched her girlfriend extend the antenna’s pole to its overall height of over seventy feet.  Krista shook her head and laughed.  The neighbors were going to have a good time pointing their fingers and laughing at the ‘city slicker,’ their label for Jodi.
