Erich Krauss is a bestselling author whose works have been on the likes of the New York Times. For about twenty years, he traveled all over the world looking for inspiration for his writing.

During this time, he fought professional Muay Thai bouts in Thailand, bicycled across Canada and the United States, hang-glided throughout Central America, and lived with an Indian tribe deep in the Amazon.

While he was on the road writing, he came up with a publishing model where the publisher and author work closely, so that they can bring the best books they can to market. In 2006, Erich established “Victory Belt Publishing,” to try out his model, and it was from this that he got several international and New York Times bestsellers.

After more than one and a half decades as a publisher and president of “Victory Belt, he stepped back from active management to focus on fiction writing, which has always been his passion. Drawing from the global health crisis and his travels, he published his first fiction work “Primitives” in 2022.

Krauss’ first adventure was born from a plan to control what had been an overactive adolescent restlessness. When Eric was fourteen, his family wanted to put him into military school to tame him, but he told them that he would prefer to go to a Utah outdoor survival school.
He was thus cast into the wild with just the clothes on his back and proceeded to eat beetles and ant larvae, create fire from sticks, and sleep in shelters made of branches and leaves in the high deserts of Southern Utah for several months.

Erich finally had the physical challenges he always wanted as with just the clothes on his back, he hiked for miles across the desert doing all manner of challenges and this would influence his later perspectives.

When he went back home, he did not have the optimistic outlook his parents expected. He would fall further away from structure and society and close himself off from everyone. All he wanted was to explore the most remote parts of the globe but his dad whom he loved so much wanted him to attend college.

Following his graduation from high school in 1989, he got into Chico State University. He went to Chico since it had a beautiful campus and for the fact that it would get him out of the Bay Area.

While Erich Krauss was doing his physical geography degree, he used to do all manner of traveling particularly during the summer break. Following his graduation, he wandered the globe and made money to live any way he could.

He loved putting his physical endurance and strength to the test and made use of some of his acquired skills such as martial arts and hang gliding to earn a living.

When he was twenty-one, he left behind everything including the woman he loved, and headed south. He reappeared seven years later with eyes glassed over, forty pounds lighter, and talking about the perfect life, the mermaid of the Amazon, and an Indian shaman.
His perilous seven-year journey to find his identity led him down to South America on foot, by bicycle, and by car until he began hacking through the Amazon with a machete.

He lived with the Witote Indian tribe deep in the Amazon, which is where he discovered writing. He would then begin chronicling his adventures and began writing about controversial nonfiction themes.

While on his quest to become an author, he learned the ins and outs of the publishing industry. He learned that most of the time, there was hardly any money to be made as an author and hence came up with his model concept of publishing that would work for authors.
“Victory Belt” his publishing company has become the leading Paleo publisher and has one of the highest ratios of bestsellers in the New York Times, sometimes having multiple works listed all at once.

Aside from the website, he also engages with fans and readers on Facebook.

“Primitives” by Erich Krauss is a fascinating work of fiction in which two unlikely heroes find themselves trying to restore humanity in a post-apocalyptic world. Three decades after the world was infected by “The Great Fatigue,” most humans regressed into a primitive state.
At the opening of the story, Seth Keller makes a horrific discovery while working in the makeshift lab that belongs to his father. It is this discovery that forces him out of his desert home where he had been very safe, leaving behind the only other person he knew was left in his world.

In the Costa Rican jungles 3000 miles away, Sarah Peoples has discovered something just as horrific which is similarly life-changing. Her new revelation will take her far from New Haven, the fledgling colony, but she will never be out of reach of its dictatorial leader.
They had been on separate journeys but now Sarah and Seth find themselves in a dangerous race against time to save mankind. In the grim realities of the demise of civilization, they realize that the remaining survivors might be the worst threat they have ever faced.

Erich Krauss’ novel “Waves of Destruction” is an exquisite work that puts a human face on the Southeast Asian tsunami in 2004. It follows the tragedy through the heroic and heartbreaking stories of four people who were fortunate enough to survive the natural disaster that is best described as cataclysmic.

Erich arrived in Nam Keam in Thailand aboard a relief truck 12 days following an underwater earthquake that resulted in a massive earthquake that decimated coastlines all across Southeast Asia and killed hundreds of thousands.
As he wandered around the wreckage trying to deliver water and food, he found survivors who told him all about their village before the devastation, and how it had forever changed their lives.

It begins with the fight for their lives as they run from a 40-foot wave and ends with a confusing and slow quest to rebuild and bury those who did not survive.

Krauss unveils the thoughts and actions of ordinary people who had to brave extraordinary circumstances, as he shares the privation and pain of four villages, who survived only to have to bury their friends and family.
