This is the page on the blog where you can all check back for regular updates on my projects. They’re listed in order of priority and have their covers and stuff uploaded. Thanks for being here!
1. Dark Redemption – Urban Fantasy (You can win free copies here!)
Release Date : July 19, 2013
The release date has changed as per a new writing residency I’ve been asked to participate in this year. Fifteen of us will form the pioneering batch of writing fellows, so I need to accommodate that opportunity. It’s quite a long residency as there will also be a research and development period, which is why I’ve changed the release date as needed.
As you guys can see, the cover is up and the short blurb about Dark Redemption is right below this line of text. Any thoughts? Feel free to share, alright?
Blurb/ Short Synopsis
Alexander is a man with a constant philosophy of life – succeed or die. He’s 1200 years old, the son of Odin and the most beloved mercenary to the Norse gods. Around those parts, if you want the job done, you go to him – and that’s exactly what Hel, the goddess of death, expects.
Once she entrusts him with his new mission of capturing a Pure One, he assures her that it’s as good as done. The problem is, it’s hard to deliver on your promise when your mission is just dead-set on being difficult.
Cue the mission – a hapless Sophia Stendahl, 23 years old and the town’s local darling. She isn’t happy with being suddenly kidnapped near the side alley of the town bar, and she lets her captors know as much. Now imprisoned in Alex’s mansion and under the constant guard of him and his two immortal cousins, she thinks all hope is lost when it comes to securing her freedom.
Set against the backdrop of idyllic Virginia, Dark Redemption is a tale of two people clashing, a town that gets caught in the crossfire, and the reminder that the goddess of death really isn’t someone you can trifle with.
2. The Starbucks Tissue Project – Nonfiction (You can learn more here!)
Release Date : September 26, 2013
This came about at the urging of some friends, who wanted me to at least do something with my collection of Starbucks tissues. I always write on those whenever I get my coffee, and friends remarked that they actually had some value. So I went in and began transcribing, and The Starbucks Tissue Project was born.
Part of the proceeds of the book go to the Create Jobs for USA Program, which is something that I support. The Starbucks Foundation also supports CJforUSA, which is why I decided it would be an appropriate beneficiary of the book. Cover is below, exactly like before. Hope you guys like it!
Well, that really is all of it for now. Check back often for more updates and I hope you guys learned a bit more about the crazy work I do. Thank you to each of you!
