Graham’s Resolution Book One Hits #1 in Postapokalyptischer in Germany!

Thanks to my German publishers, Luzifer-Verlag, the first book in the Graham’s Resolution series has hit #1 on Amazon’s German site for the second day in a row!

And…they now have the second book in the series set for translation. The reviews have been great. It seems German readers appriciate the postapocalyptic genre as much as Americans do.

While perusing my publisher’s site I ran across several authors that I know and interact with often. They have some really great books out. One of those authors is G. Michael Hopf.

The-End-Web

His, The End series is quite popular in America as well.

In the Thriller genre, I’m accainted with Ian Graham. In fact, I met Ian in New Orleans last month at Bouchercon 2016. We had a great time there especially in the weapons class.

And another British writer I’ve met, no relation, Alex Shaw is also published on Luzifer-Verlag.

So Graham’s Resolution is in good company, or as the Germans put it Grahams Prefung. I can’t wait to see the cover they come up with for book two.

French Wardrobe Cover Reveal

The French Wardrobe Cover Reveal

Tada… Here is the cover design for The French Wardrobe. It was a tough decision and at first I thought we were headed in a very different direction entirely but after asking the design team to tweak a secondary design, the artist came up with hand drawn version and this design reflects the story so well, I was hooked.

Now, I just need to finish the story. The French Wardrobe is about a widow’s journey out of grief when her overly protective husband suddenly is taken from her. Though she’s strong in her own way, she has no idea how to cope in this new life solo. Then, strength, comes from an unlikely source. It’s a tale of finding power within in the hardest of times.

This book is considered contemporary fiction and is a departure from the type of stories I typically write. I’m hoping to write in many different genres so this will be a first, though I don’t see my writing style ever completely removed from dystopian. Call me a synic, it’s just the way I’m built.

Stay tuned and I will let you know when The French Wardrobe is soon to be released. Better yet, join my newsletter up on the right of this website and you’ll receive an email when there’s news to share.

New Release of Wayward Pines Kate’s Redemption

 

Wayward Pines Kate’s Redemption is finally released and I’m pretty happy with the way this novella turned out.

I hope you enjoy it too. At only $1.99, this short story tells Kate’s story of her integration into Wayward Pines. Did you ever wonder why she was so compliant when Ethan found her?

This novella, Kate’s Redemption, is based on the popular book series Wayward Pines by Blake Crouch with a special agreement through Kindle Worlds.

Kate knew Wayward Pines couldn’t be hell though she had her doubts at weaker moments. If only she could find the truth about the town where everyone knew your name and hid behind simulated smiles that defied the fear in their eyes. The rules were there for a reason. If you violated those rules, the phone would ring with deadly consequences.

At times, Kate believed she deserved this place after the moral crime she committed with Ethan Burke, but this redemption was far more than she could take and it was only a matter of time before her will would break.

Pick it up today for quick weekend read. Kate’s Redemption

The Latest

Cover Reveal & Wayward Pines Giveaway!

A few announcements. Now that The Malefic Nation is awaiting the final editing, I have all this spare time to waste? Not exactly. While the Malefic Nation is on PreSale, I’ve been busily working on another short story for Kindle Worlds. Some of you may have heard of the series by Blake Crouch. Not only is it a Kindle Worlds, it’s also been adapted to television. Wayward Pines is a hit summer TV show starring Matt Dillon. The novella for Wayward Pines will be based on the series and not the TV show, however. There are many differences between the two.

I encourage you to read the series and enjoy this world. My upcoming Kindle Worlds addition to the Wayward Pines series is titled Kate’s Redemption which will be based on the untold story of how Kate assimilated so well into Wayward Pines…or did she? Here is the cover reveal for Kate’s Redemption. I’m looking for a quick release on this one. As always, I will let you know the upcoming date.

(In addition, please wait to purchase The Malefic Nation until I give you the special upcoming pricing dates which will only be announced to those on my newsletter list.)

Also, the audiobook for The Last Infidels, narrated by Jim Cunningham will be released on Amazon, Audible and iTunes any day now and this same narrator will begin The Malefic Nation by late summer.

To celebrate Kate’s Redemption, I thought I’d run a giveaway for a Kindle ebook copy of Pines, the first book in the Wayward Pines Trilogy in anticipation of Kate’s Redemption. I’ve read the whole series as well as several of the Kindle Worlds novellas in the Kindle World. It’s unlike anything you’ve read though it’s compared to Twin Peaks. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I know you will too. Blake Crouch is a very talented author.

I wish you luck!

Graham’s Resolution has an Ending


The Graham’s Resolution series is complete. It’s a bittersweet realization that you’ve finished a series you love.
Malefic

Like naming Sheriff, picking the virus, the position of Hope; everything seemed to fall into place as if it was meant to be there. So too was the finality of the last line I wrote today; it felt right. It’s the end of the Graham’s Resolution series. And, I’m a little crushed.

I’ll move on. I’ve got more ideas. But, I think I’m mourning a little over it all. Of course, I left a little opening to go  back and do a sequel for the next generation at a later date, but it won’t be the same and I know this.

To me, this story was one bursting to life. There were times, I couldn’t keep up. My characters let me know when I went off track. My fan encouraged me to go on. And I did…until it was done and now I’m a little at a loss. I think it will take me a day or two. I’ll clean off my desk and wait for the Beta readers to finish and offer any suggestions, then it’s off to my editor. I’ll implement the edits and then The Malefic Nation will become live, the last in the series of Graham’s Resolution.

I don’t think I could have made the story better. Of course, in the beginning the editing could have been a lot better. But the story itself, it’s what it needed to be and I hope everyone enjoys the ending as well. I believe in human evil and I believe in the human spirit. The battle of good and evil is real in fiction and it’s real in reality. Either can win. My hope is that no matter how evil the world becomes, there’s a way to win it over and strong people willing to make the sacrifice to bring it back at any cost.

Now what? Now, I think I’ll take a long walk and try to let those old ideas flood back in. I’ll let you know. Perhaps a quick sequel to Deception on Durham Road before I start the next big novel? Apparently, I need to blow up the neighborhood on my way out. 🙂 Might be fun.

In any event, I’ll keep you informed.
