For those of you who have so patiently waited, Surrender the Sun is now available on Amazon,  iTunes and Audible.

In Other News

Book Two in the Surrender the Sun series is coming along. I will tell you that this one will focus more nationally and the third book will focus more globally. And, if you’re not familiar with the Maunder Minimum, please look into it. There have been several new scientific warnings that have come out recently. –Odd when the thing you write about …might just come true. Shivers 

Also, the German edition of The China Pandemic, titled, Survivor, it doing fantastic. It’s stayed in the number one position of Post Apocalyptic for well over a week now. I’m so thankful to the Luzifer-Verlag publishers. They have asked for the second book, The Cascade Preppers, and it’s now in translation.

There will be another special announcement, in the next week or so concerning the Graham’s Resolution series. But for now…I’ll leave you with a few books I’ve read recently and recommend.

 

Scavenger by Ross Elder – A Perseid Collapse Novella

I wrote a blog post about this one recently. I cannot recommend this one enough. This author is VERY talented. Please give this one a try. It takes a lot to get me to weep while reading anymore…this one did.


Devil Dogs by Boyd Craven


RedLine by Alex Shaw – A Perseid Collapse Novella

Black Shuck Thriller by Ian Graham

#PoweredbyIndie is the hashtag for the month of October celebrating Indie Authors.

Becoming an indie author has suited my personality well. When I began with my first series, Graham’s Resolution, I only set out to tell a story…it’s what drove me and utilizing KDP as my publisher was an easy call. There was no competing for an agent or attempt to try and charm a publisher with my prose. I simply wrote the story within me and published my work. To my surprise readers actually liked what I wrote and I kept going with the series. That was enough encouragement for me to keep going. There’s nothing better than to have readers demand the next book in the series.

There’s nothing better than to have readers demand the next book in the series. There’s also nothing like having them tell you not to kill off a character because they’ve become so emotionally vested in a fictional person or dog that you’ve created. It’s a strange new world and I think I like it.

Now with my new series, Surrender the Sun, my readers are again sinking into a world I’ve created and demanding the next book…now! I’m working on it.

This is why indie publishing is so great. You have direct contact with your readers. And they are not shy about letting you know what they liked and what they didn’t.

For now, I’m sticking with indie publishing with a huge thanks to Amazon KDP Publishing. #PoweredByIndie. If you’d like to see the titles on Amazon’s Powered by Indie features, click on the links.

I’m thankful they made this possible!

Surrender the Sun will release August 4th!

Download your copy of Surrender the Sun today and it will magically appear on your Kindle app the night of the 3rd in most cases.

After the beta readers read Surrender the Sun, I received a lot of encouraging feedback. I hope you will enjoy the first book in this new series. I plan to continue the adventures of Maeve and Bishop through this catastrophic weather encounter.

Surrender the Sun is now on PreSale!

What a crazy week! First, I released The French Wardrobe and then released Surrender the Sun as a Presale on Amazon.

Here is the description.

It’s happened once before, and it will happen again.

In the year 2030 the Maunder Minimum, a period of solar inactivity, will cause a mini-ice age like it did between the years 1645 and 1710. When it does, Bishop will have to save her not only from the effects of severe weather but also from man himself.

Maeve Tilton and her son Ben live alone in the rural town of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Since her husband died in the war, she’s barely kept her head above water, and when the first freeze strikes in the fall, she’s completely unprepared for what lies ahead. Only a war-torn man, one who prefers the solitude of the Kootenai National Forest, can rescue her and her son.

 

I’m really excited about this new release. The concept of the Maunder Minimum is frightening and the more I research the more I scare myself. LOL.

Surrender The Sun takes place in a location I know very well, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. I went there last winter and did a little poking around during a snowstorm. It’s a beautiful part of the country and if you ever get a chance to visit, please do. You’ll never forget it. Maybe not in the winter…it’s a summer retreat. The background picture from above is one that I took off of a high ledge. There’s a lot of camping and hiking, fishing and boating to do.

But, Surrender the Sun changes all of that. A mini ice age that changes the world. When I say mini, I mean fifty years or so. That’s how long the last one lasted and that’s what some scientist are predicting to happen again around 2030.

I like the idea of taking real world threats and using them to create a catastrophe around. The realism catches reader’s attention and makes them think of the possibilities. I certainly hope there never is a mass plague as in Graham’s Resolution or a mini ice age in our future but the thought of such conditions makes us wonder how we could survive them. That’s a good thing in my view.
