Important questions to be examined

Had Terror Strikes STOPPED during the Wuhan Lockdowns?
Would a national/federal BROKEN WINDOWS policing policy have prevented 9/11?
The issues of PTSD and/or Survivors Guilt (and Suicide Prevention addressed in the book)!
What are GIJIA? and/or What is a GIJIAS?
What is SCHRODINGER CAT theorem and what does it have to do with this book?
Who was ARETHUSA and what does she have to do with Terrorism today?
How do I avoid metaphors in my book and why? (humor)
What genre is this book, really?
What does HELL MICHIGAN have to do with this book?
more (additional thoughts/points below)….

This book is intended for all audiences - young, old, and everywhere in-between (in fact written in a manner so-as to be giftable to High-School students to get Historic information to challenge their Indoctrination is leaving out); male, female, not just for macho shoot-em-up, blood and guts, fare; religious, non-religious; political, non-political. However, it is impossible to address the topics and why they want to kill us without delving into some religious texts and politics. The Torah, the Holy Bible, and the Quran, are all addressed. It is a Constitutionalist Conservatives book.

This is NOT a book about death, but one about LIFE (and living) and of those (foreign and domestic) that would deprive others of that Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness.

Yes, Terror Strikes is about Terrorism, but it is NOT a book about Death but of Life and Living!
Life, over Death. Hope, over Fear. Faith, over Despair. Love, over Hate. Good, over Evil. Individualism, over Collectivism. Freedom, over Tyranny. Family, and Friends.

Islamic fundamentalists terrorists - who they are, what they have done, what they are doing, and why they will never be able to be persuaded to stop.

A book within a book.. A blog within a book.. Past, present, future, converging..

Terror Strikes is not just a book, but a book within a book as the lead, Marten a newspaper man, is writing a book about terrorism. It is also a blog, within a book, as Marten uses his blog as some source material. Terror Strikes not only acts as a history lesson and warning, but concepts of not just those lost but survivors guilt and other related issues surrounding violent acts effecting everyday life.
NAPERVILLE (chapter): Theresa, while she thought she was fully mindful of the need to be a protector of her child, realized she was far more an ostrich; in this regard; than the mama-bear she need be.  --- ostriches still get BOWLED OVER by things they try to hide from.

Two great reviews (from Amazon, also can be seen on my page), that happen to be from a husband/wife team, worth sharing (as provide some insight into the book and writing style) are:

You can tell the people who can grasp that you do not have to agree with everything in a book and still enjoy it - like the Sylvia/Christina review "Everyone has their own opinions and negativity is such a large part of this world. We give you credit for writing a book and getting it published. The book is interesting and definitely made me look outside my box of thinking..." and indeed I found things I agreed things I disagreed and unlike others don't feel the need to attack the author over it vs crowd that Hate a book that literally has a chapter called LOVE VS HATE in it and therefore just want to attack the author and the book like seen in several reviews copying and pasting the same lack of imagination responses across the many sites the book is sold.

Like the authors Terror Strikes Info book site says "Fair warning - while some Historical aspects are mixed within, this is a Fictional story with Fictional characters. Many deem this book controversial and upsetting in many places, which it is meant to be. Meant to MAKE PEOPLE THINK! Challenge their own and others intentions, motives, own morality and mortality" but some cannot handle their morals and mortality challenged but only that/when they question others' and want to try to prevent others from reading a very well written book, that again sadly some just cannot handle.

My husband [whose Editorial review appears on Amazon] handed me a copy of "Terror Strikes: Coming Soon to a City Near You" once he was finished reading and told me I needed to read it. So glad I did. Indeed a very "distinct" and "different" book from the usual Politically biased fare available today.

I read the reviews and saw how Mr. Lenard was more being personally attacked than the substance of his book refuted, which is understandable when people cannot refute details then engage in personal assault. As for his Grammatical style? It is in-line with Dean Koontz, Brian Herbert, S T Joshi, and others; as outlined on the Terror Strikes website "ScoreIt" subpage; do they attack them too? Doubtful. 

As for other aspects of Mr. Lenard's "writing style?" It is very much in-line with many others that use the narrative and/or descriptive (per page by percentage) versus formulaic "proportion of dialog in novels" (U-Penn report); of which Hemingway is considered the master of dialog writing style. Personally I think some use to just pad page-count, or convey something they otherwise have trouble descriptively delivering, rather than enhance story. Do people criticize Dan Brown's "The DaVinci Code" written with same styling? Then there are books with zero dialog which include the likes of "The Notebook" (N. Sparks), "The Road" (C. McCarthy), "The Great Gatsby," "Catcher in the Rye," Classics, and more! Are those criticized?

So, yes, as one other reviewer listed on the Terror Strikes reviews page says - this book does not engage in a lot of dialog. In my opinion, it didn't need to. For my part, I greatly enjoy both stylings, but books like this are indeed the smaller part of the market, while others follow the Pack. Both make for great reads, for different reasons.

I for one am happy Joseph M Lenard's "Terror Strikes: Coming Soon to a City Near You" has the courage to take the path less tread in his adoptive style.

Honor. Integrity. Patriotism.  ---  For some people these are words. For bestselling author Joseph M Lenard, these are the core values that he embodies – every day - deeply engrained in every facet of his life and work.

It is this set of cherished values he brings to life in his latest #1 bestselling historical fiction novel, Terror Strikes. The book has been compared to The Sum of All Fears and Deep Impact. Joseph M. Lenard shred the “creative writing process formulaic methodologies” to create a writing style and literature like no other Author before.

Billed as a book for conservatives, but appropriate for all readers, this extraordinary new book is a stunning achievement, set apart from even the best historical fiction books, as it clearly demonstrates the need for situational awareness and vigilance in a world in which mass shootings and other forms of terrorism have become the norm. Reviewers have called the book "compelling", "historically accurate", and utterly "unique".

Terror Strikes connects the dots of not just foreign terrorists, but those both foreign and domestic that abhor Western culture and their attempts through terror attacks and other more shadowy undermining of our collective freedom to enjoy  our individual lives, liberty, and the personal pursuit of happiness.

Whether you are a staunch conservative, a prepper, or just have concerns about what is happening in American life/society today, Terror Strikes will answer many of the questions you have regarding terrorism, foreign and domestic, and will make for a remarkable reading experience.
