7 Days to Cover Reveal   Leave a comment

Cover Reveal for A Threatening Fragility 2In just 7 days, I will reveal the cover of my latest book, 3rd in the Transformation Project series – A Threatening Fragility.

Fans maybe wondering what happened to Cai Delaney as he was fleeing military drones at the end of the book. I’m not telling, but don’t worry … the worst thing that could happen to him is a fire squad, so he’ll be fine … or not.

Right. When your novelist starts out a series by incinerating 30 million people, you just don’t know where she might go as the series goes along. Who is expendable and who is not?

And, what was Rob doing to Shane at the end of the last book? Yeah … that didn’t look good.

And what’s going on with the terrorists who escaped a power max facility? Or the electronic watchers that only Shane knows about? Or the critical surveillance information Shane is holding?

What’s going on with the 5,000 souls of Emmaus, Kansas and how is the USDA and corn field fires going to make their lives more complicated?

If an apocalyptic with libertarian influences sounds intriguing to you, the series is available here electronically or you can also order it in paperback from Createspace. And A Threatening Fragility will be up for presale by October.

Reveal Is Coming   Leave a comment

I believe that covers should have something to do with the book they represent. For example, the cover for Life As We Knew It (Book 1 of Transformation Project) featured a mushroom cloud behind a barn with a bomb shelter sign on it. It was meant to make people think … just how ready are we for a terrorist attack? Most communities are unprepared for the scenario I set up in the book.

Then, the cover for Objects in View (Book 2) featured the same mushroom cloud in the mirror of a car that is stuck in traffic. Wouldn’t that be exactly what would happen to us in such a scenario? We all live in cities and the preppers all plan to bug out, so everybody will be on the road, trying to get away.

So now I’m getting ready for the third book in the series, A Threatening Fragility. Watch for the cover reveal on August 30. You can join us on Facebook and sign up for the Rafflecopter giveaway if you’re interested.

Announcing New Project   Leave a comment

Grand Chart BannerBreakwater Harbor Books author Lela Markham’s short “Grand Chart” has been accepted into the Agorist Writers Workshop’s 2017 anthology project Unbound. Watch for this libertarian fantasy featuring 15 authors in November.

“Making voluntaryist principles work in a feudal society with a strong fantasy element was a fun challenge as a writer,” Lela said. “Although this short was more in my wheelhouse than the alternative history short ‘A Bridge at Adelphia’ was last year, it still challenged me to write a short story that includes nontraditional elements for a fantasy, which is what makes these anthology projects enjoyable. Plus, Kath – the main character — is from the Daermad Cycle universe, so fans of the series can learn something about this minor character’s past.”

Lela also reports that she is in the editing phase of her next full-length novel A Threatening Fragility (book 3 of Transformation Project). Are you ready for the government to reassert itself? How do you think the residents of Emmaus will respond? Watch for it around October with a cover reveal event August 30. Join her and sign up for the RaffleCopter giveaway.
