I'm the author of the ASHFALL three-and-a-half-ology: ASHFALL, ASHEN WINTER, SUNRISE, and DARLA'S STORY.
A whopping 51% of Americans say they don't read books because they're too busy watching 2.8 hours of TV a day?! Put down that remote and back away from the screen . . .
Same thing goes for all those people who say they "always wanted to write a novel but don't have the time."
