Some news about Graham’s Resolution

Now that I’m at the halfway mark of writing book four, I have a better idea of how the series will finish. Yes, this will be the final book in Graham’s Resolution for now. I may come back and write a ‘ten years later’ book in the future and possibly a prequel, but it’s exciting to see that the story is coming to its end. There are still secret plans in the works for the series, however.

So I’m presenting to you the fourth book of Graham’s Resolution with The Malefic Nation.

Malefic

Here is the new cover. The season is summer and I like the way the cover artist, Keri Knutson, has depicted the town below the mountains surrounded by a lake and the brilliant summer sky. She’s a very talented cover artist and I’ve enjoyed working with her on this series.

She also made the Audio cover to match. Darriel Driml is currently working on The Last Infidels audio, and I believe he is nearing completion soon. I hope.

This is a bittersweet realization that the series is nearing completion but I’m ready to move on, and I have a few projects in mind. I do still plan to do a companion novella for Deception on Durham Road, but I’m not sure if that project will be next or if one of my standalone works will  be the next focus.

In any event, I’ll keep you posted. I’ve got a new editor, and he’s very qualified and is currently editing the series, starting from the top.

As for the Presale issue, I didn’t like the way it treated my readers. I think it’s flawed in the release mechanism. So, I will hold off on submitting The Malefic Nation as a PreSale until its near release. I think that’s fairer.

That’s all for now, I welcome questions and comments. Thank you, and I hope you like the new cover!

Author Intro – Sean T. Smith – Sunshine Patriots

I met Author, Sean T. Smith in correlation to Steven Konkoly’s Kindle Worlds Perseid Collapse release. (That’s a long title) I’d never read anything by Sean before and so after reading his contribution for the PC Worlds (Ha! PC, not.) I thought, heck, this guy can write! And, I mean it. He really can write well.
Sunshine Patriot’s has a smooth lyrical voice. The pacing works. You feel for the characters. I all, I enjoyed it and know you will as well. I think it’s perfect for both male and female readers too.

These PC novellas provide us with a great way to try out new authors without committing to an entire novel. After reading Sunshine Patriots I looked into his other works and then I recognized his covers. Our series often play hop-scotch with one another  when ranking. I love the cover art and I know the story within is great if it’s anything like Sunshine Patriots.

Sean also blogs about writing religion and the apocalypse. I’m not certain in that order but well here’s his website where you can check him out.

Author Intro – Ian Graham & The Amsterdam Directorate

I met author, Ian Graham during one of our many interview collaborations for the launch of the Perseid Collapse Kindle Worlds. He’s a great guy and has his own success story. He’s the author of several works including a series, anthology contributor and published two novellas for the Perseid Collapse Kindle Worlds cause. He’s a busy guy.

I read The Amsterdam Directorate and, right away, I was impressed with Ian’s writing. We all have our own ideas about what would happen in a disaster like Perseid Collapse but I’ve got to say, Ian’s rendition in this novella was much like my own. As I did, he went for the personal gut wrenching day to day affect survivors would go through.

His main character is a man of religion that has to contront bad guys. He does it with remorse but does it remarkably well all the same. I very much enjoyed this novella and to my surprise he came out with a part two to the story just recently. It’s making it’s way up on my to be read list.

Ian is also the author of several other novels and this novella is a perfect introduction into his work. His most popular work is the Black Shuck Thriller series

I know Ian is working on new projects to keep his fans in reading material. You can take a look at his website and keep up to date on his new released too.

Author Introduction – Alex Shaw

I’ve known Alex Shaw for nearly as long as I’ve been an author. We met on Twitter and shared each other’s book links and then one day a fan asked if he was my spouse. Uhmm….nope. Alex lives in England and even though we share the same last name, we’re not related. Don’t get me wrong he’s a great guy, as far as I know in a virtual sense.

What I do know for sure is that Alex is a great author. He’s got the thriller James Bond style down tight. So when I became involved with the Perseid Collapse group, he was interested too and wrote a novella for the cause. I just finished reading Blackline by Alex Shaw and I can say without a doubt it’s a fast paced, heart thumping, experience. He takes a guy on vacation and turns his down time into an action packed catastrophe, Perseid Collapse style. It’s a great intro into Alex Shaw’s gritty, never-boring, humorous writing that his fans abroad adore.

Here are a few of his mainline novels.

 

Perseid Collapse Kindle Worlds Novellas

This world keeps growing. That is, Author Steven Konkoly’s Perseid Collapse Kindle Worlds is now 15 authors strong. Many of the novellas like The Amsterdam Directorate and The Pilgrimage by Tom Abrahams are in a series. With the additional books the total comes to eighteen novellas so far and there are more scheduled to be released. I know when I joined the ranks of the Perseid Collapse Kindle Worlds with Deception on Durham Road, I had no idea they would be so popular.  It was an honor to write in someone else’s worlds and I hope to go back to my contribution and extend it into another novella.

So if you’re looking for a short read and you’ve read Steven Konkoly’s Perseid Collapse series, give these Kindle Worlds a try. It’s a great way to discover a new author or two. I’ve read many of them and they are all quite impressive.

Deception on Durham Road’s Goes to the Dogs – Little Known Fact

IMG_1594_Fotor_CollageThere’s a little known fact about the dogs who play a part in my novella, Deception on Durham Road (Kindle Worlds) A Perseid Collapse Novella. Not only does my yellow lab Oakley appear, so do my grand-dogs, Sally, the white poodle mix and Baxter the…well, we’re not really sure what Baxter is, but he is as smart as his character in the story.

As for the heroic lead dog Ace, he’s purely fictional but any animal shelter is filled with canines like Ace; waiting for their chance to make you the center of their world.

It was fun to write them into the novella and include their separate quirky personalities. Oakley also serves as inspiration for Sheriff in my main series Graham’s Resolution. He’s an extremely loyal and protective dog, and often alerts me to the UPS drivers two blocks away in case I might not realize they were in the vicinity. He loves people food and beer…though of course he rarely gets any. He also loves the elusive red dot and goes nuts trying to find it in the dark. He’s a good boy, like Sheriff and I can’t imagine my day without him. So here’s to the dogs in Deception on Durham Road, a scenario I can fathom and hope you enjoy the short read.
