Angela Addams: What would I have to have in my apocalypse bunker? + giveaway

What would I have to have in my apocalypse bunker? 

Folks, this is a serious freakin’ question!

Let’s pretend I’m a fiction writer…er…no…let me start again. Let’s pretend that the apocalypse has come and we’re overrun by zombies…wait…no, that’s been done.

Okay, so here’s the deal, I think about the whole apocalypse scenario quite a bit and have already decided what my top five must haves would be (let’s assume that I have all of the life or death amenities so that this doesn’t get boring, okay? GREAT!)

5. BOOKS!!! Right? Of course I need books, lots of mothereffin’ books! I would not only load up my kindle (I would have a generator to charge it, silly) but I would also bring as many paperbacks as I could…in fact, maybe I would use the paperbacks as insulation in the walls so that they served multiple purposes! Perfect! Although I’d make room for some of the classics (Wilkie Collins is one of my favs), I would mostly bring all Kelley Armstrong adult books, Rhyannon Byrd, Karen Marie Moning, D.B. Reynolds, just to name a few.

4. Chocolate! Duh. I love all chocolate (well, except for dark unless it has orange or mint in it). So I would absolutely require a giant stash of peanut butter cups, caramel, mint, orange, milk, nuts (hehe) whatever in my bunker.

3. Weapons. Okay, let’s get serious for a moment. If there is an apocalypse, I’m going to need weapons. I prefer shotguns as I have experience with shooting trap (I’m not joking. I like that sport, even if, or maybe because, I’m one of the few women at the range.) If someone breaks into my bunker they’re gonna hear the sliding click of my pump action as I load up. Of course I’d ask questions first, but still, if that sound doesn’t clue you in perhaps facing the end of a barrel will.

2. Man Candy. If I’m alone in my bunker I’m going to need some visual…um…stimulation…something like this…I’m a total sucker for forearm tattoos…also accents and bad boys. Mmmmm



1. And finally…finally…what? OMG I feel like I’m forgetting something…what??? Oh, right, my computer and a buttload of notebooks and pens so that I can write. Whew. If I forgot to bring that stuff I’d be venturing out of my bunker pretty quick. I can go for a few days without letting the fiction in my head out but that’s it. If you want to see me go bonkers in the bunker, keep the words from flowing…yep…that would drive me totally mad.

That’s it, folks, Angela Addams’ must haves for surviving an apocalypse. Of course, I don’t really like being dirty unless there’s a shower with some good water pressure and my hair needs daily conditioning or it goes all to hell. Perhaps I need to make my bunker in some kind of 5-star hotel that is impervious to whatever apocalypse scenario I’m presented with.

I wrote a novel with a seriously high-tech bunker in it. There’s all the amenities, food, water, whiskey, werewolves and a few witches….but that’s a post for later ;-)


by Angela Addams
Her destiny is etched in his skin…and carved in her heart.

Morgan Stills is a woman without a future. At least, that’s what the carnival psychic tells her. Love is foretold as well, but too bad. She’s already been marked for death.

She no sooner flees the psychic’s tent when she’s confronted by the biggest wolf she’s ever seen. A wolf that talks to her—right before she’s enveloped in a black cloak and dragged away.

Caleb was born for one purpose: follow the burning of his tattoo to find and protect his destined mate, the Huntress. When he rescues her from Lazarus, the king of beasts, what thanks does he get? A swift kick in his tender parts that leaves him writhing in a ball of pain.

Morgan quickly realizes her destiny lies with the Order of the Wolf. The only catch—she must choose between two sworn enemies who vie for her body, heart, and soul. Marked as a Huntress, thrust into an ancient feud between werewolf and Hunter, she must pick up a sword or die. And somehow learn to live without the man she is destined to kill.

Warning: Be prepared for fiery hot, melt-your-panties men, all muscle and sinew, searching for their one true mate. Committed, hot, and horny. What could be better?

  2. Hubby and I have done the "what if" over the apocalypse thing and he was not on board with me having my paper books. Now I have a perfect counter to sway him to my side. :) We would have both shotguns and handguns as I prefer handguns and he prefers shotguns (skeet shooting).

    1. Susan, I haven't yet tried skeet shooting. I'm still trying to improve my aim with trap! lol I'm glad I added to your side of the what if debate. Books are a necessity!

  5. I like the idea of giving double purpose to your books by also using them for insulation. Maybe I should do that, now!

  7. Well, yep! What's not to like about that list if one did have to survive the end of the world stuff. Good call on the chocolate, but I would have to chuck the white and grab the dark as tastes go.

    Fun post!

  10. My son's and my daughter all have plans for the apocalypse or zombie invasion. Mostly it consist of find the nearest fire axe and start swinging :D

    Haven't read these yet and am adding them to my wishlist in case I don't win - then when the book funds allow I can get them all.

  11. Shotgun is a good 'must have' for any apocalypse. I would probably toss in bullet making equipment and some knives, if there is room and time.

    1. Very wise! Being able to load your own shells would be vital!

  12. Ooooooo! I hope there's room in that bunker for me! *quickly packing all of my remaining chocolate rations and wondering how I'll get my three overstuffed bookcases filled with my mass market paperbacks into my one and only wheelie bag...*
