Red Kryptonite Curve

Never judge a book by its cover.

Peter Wyngate’s life is easy – viewed from the outside. Handsome, intelligent, athletic, musically talented, he can have any girl he wants. His father’s a rich powerful man who can send his kid on European summer tours and bestow cool cars. He’s got a great best friend and a fiercely loyal sister. 

In a matter of days at the end of the summer before heading to college, Peter learns that all the advantages of his life might actually be stumbling blocks when influenced by red kryptonite.

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.

Stay Tuned for the Cover Reveal   2 comments

A Threatening Fragility, the third book in the Transformation Project series, will head to the beta readers next week. It should be published this fall. Soon, the cover will be ready for preview.

I recently took a couple of weeks mostly off social media to complete the working draft of the book. I reached a point where I recognized that maintaining my Twitter page was costing me time I needed to finish the book.

This book’s journey has been a more complicated than previous novels. When I published Objects in View (Book 2 of the same series) almost a year ago, I planned to turn my attention to the 3rd book in my fantasy series, Daermad Cycle, but I struggled to keep my attention on the project. I’m writing it and what I am producing is good, but I’ve had trouble concentrating on my stated primary project. I’ve written two short stories and revisited a literary fiction in my back catalog. Eventually, A Threatening Fragility won first place in this multi-pronged writing exploration. The point is to produce quality books, not to follow some predetermined publication schedule that risks causing writer’s block, which might impact my ability to produce quality books. This is the biggest advantage of being an independent author. My publishing cooperative doesn’t hold me to the same conditions a traditional publisher might.

If you’re a fan of Daermad Cycle, it’s likely you’ll need to wait until sometime in 2018 for Fount of Wraiths, but it will be good. Like fine wine, fine fantasy takes time.

If you’re a fan of the Transformation series, you can soon find out if Cai survives the Army’s search for him, if Shane kicks Rob’s butt for drugging him, if the farmers can hang onto their crops, and who is going to win the presidential wrestling match. Things are turning dark on the Kansas prairie. Come see how the people of Emmaus cope. For those unfamiliar with the series, it could be termed a libertarian apocalyptic. I don’t look for government to rescue people if society goes off the rails, but I believe powerfully in people being the heroes in their own story … individuals cooperating with other individuals to find their way to a better place. I also believe that human beings are varied in their skills and ability to cope. People who are nice in times of plenty may become evil when pressed by starvation or imbued with power. Come see how that works out in the book when it publishes sometime this fall.
