Graham’s Resolution Goes to Germany

Graham’s Resolution Goes to Germany

A year ago publisher Luzifer-Verlag reached out to me to ask for the publishing rights of the first book in Graham’s Resolution, The China Pandemic. Luzifer-Verlag is an awesome German publishing company. They’ve translated and published books for authors, Russell Blake, Ian Graham, G. Michael Hopf and many others.

They created an intriguing cover and translated the novel into German. Just a few days ago the first book in Graham’s Resolution released in Germany and has ready received its first review. Of course, in translation, I can read the reviews and hope they keep coming and are positive. So far so good.

It’s great to extend my readership into another country and to share Graham’s Resolution.

“Powered by adept character development and relentless pacing, this post-apocalyptic novel, the first in a series…makes for a page-turning, end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it reading experience. …readers will find Morgan to be an endearing hero at world’s end.

The beginning of what could be a riveting apocalyptic saga.” -Kirkus Review

Top 100 best seller in Dystopian and Post-Apocalyptic fiction novels. A Prepper thriller fiction TEOTWAWKI favorite.

What the world dreads most has happened- because of a mutated avian bird flu (H5N1) pandemic. It has ravaged the globe to near extinction. Only 2% of the population has survived. A dying mother knows that her young child is among the few immune to the virus. What will she do to ensure his survival before her own coming tragic death?

Meanwhile, Graham has buried his last remaining family member. Following his father’s advice to make it to the family cabin, he meets with triumph and tragedy; learning new rules along the way in his quest for survival. Just when he thinks he’s finally got a handle on this new world, he’s taken by surprise, as he learns he’s not alone. A hidden yet vulnerable community of Preppers are nearby. Will he find the strength to escape these dangers and go on living? And more importantly, will he have the ability to protect those he’s come to trust?

Signings, New Vendors & More

Hello. I have a few updates to share about the series.

Availability – I’ve often received emails expressing issues with the ebooks lack of availability beyond Kindle. In the past, I’ve only listed it exclusively with Amazon Kindle however, that has changed this week and The China Pandemic eBook version is now available at most major retailers. Kobo, BN.com, Scribd, Page Foundry, Tolino and of course Amazon. By next month, The Cascade Preppers and The Last Infidels will also be available at these retailers.

Book Signing – I will be reading from The China Pandemic on May 28th at 6pm at the Liberty Lake, WA Library. If you’re in the Spokane area, I’d love to meet you. Bring your paperback book for signing or you can purchase one there. (No purchase necessary) We’ll talk about the series, the publishing world and any other topics that arise.

Editing News – This has been a long journey. One of the most major issues in indie writing is finding a professional editor. Though I’ve had The China Pandemic edited five times, I knew it still needed polishing. So, I finally tracked down the best possible editor with fantastic credentials and he accepted me as a client. He has worked for major publishers. He’s worked for Amazon’s imprint 47north. And he’s worked on many major bestsellers. His name is Brian Bendlin and he just completed The China Pandemic. He is now re-editing The Cascade Preppers and so on and so forth. I’m finally relieved that when I publish something, it will be in it’s best form, from now on and I know you are too. 🙂

In other news, I’ve received a few contacts who are interested in representing the series as literary agents. This means, that possibly in the near future, Graham’s Resolution will be professionally Published. This is something I will only agree to if I do not have to sign a no compete clause which limits the number of books an author can produce in a year. If so, it means the series will be more broadly available and I can focus on writing instead of business; which would be nice…

Last but not least, I’m taking a trip soon to Hope, Canada. Though I’ve traveled to every destination in the series, I haven’t been to where the group is fleeing. I feel no matter how much research you do online, nothing compares to the impression you get gleaning from the place you’re writing about. So next month, off I go and I’ll take pictures to post. (Now I just need to write about Hawaii or France…)

Also, The Malefic Nation is coming along well though I don’t anticipate it release date until the end of summer, I’ll keep you posted. The manuscript is over half way complete and I want the story to end the best way possible. After completion, I’m leaving the series for a while. I may come back and write a prequel and/or a sequel, but I have a few stand-a-lones that I’d like to get out of my system first.

One thing I could use your help with, if you haven’t left a review on the series, please do. I would appreciate reviews on all the books I’ve written including Deception on Durham Road. This is one way you can support your favorite authors.

Thank you for all you kind notes. I welcome them anytime.

Until later!

Mother’s Day Sale

In Honor of (7)

 

Because I’m a Mom of four great kids who are now young adults, I know the life of Motherhood 🙂 In Honor of Mom’s daily sacrifice, please gift to her the ebook, The China Pandemic for only .99 the entire week of Mother’s Day! May 9th-16th.  Get her flowers, a little chocolate and something unique from you.

She’ll love and appreciate that you recognized her stamina of mom-hood. All those late nights worrying over you. The hand she had no qualms about, thrust before your vomiting mouth. The dirty diaper Dad refused to change, but Mom couldn’t let you go around like that one second longer. The money she transferred to your account to get you out of a bind. Teaching you to cook that meal you used to make your girlfriend adore you. Washed the stains out of your favorite blouse. Told you to always use you as an excuse for peer pressure to keep you out of trouble. The list is mighty long and variations apply. No one loves you like Mom. Always remember that.

Cover & Title Reveal for Graham’s Resolution Finale

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.

GR4AB

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!
