Race to Refuge Cover Reveal

Race to Refuge will be released in March.

I received the cover back from the graphic designer, Domi, of Inspired Cover Designs, yesterday and I’m showing it here first.

In this story, University of Washington students Ryan Palmer and Amy decide to bugout of Seattle when world tensions threaten to boil over into world war. In normal times their journey to Ryan’s childhood home in rural Idaho would take less than a day. But these aren’t normal times. As they travel supplies become scarce, gasoline becomes impossible to buy, people panic and nuclear war erupts. Together they must confront their worst fears as they fight to reach home and refuge.

Race to Refuge is in final editing. The exact release date hasn’t been set but this standalone novella will be available as a 99 cent ebook on Amazon in March. In the summer the story will be released on other platforms.

Pondering the Nativity

The writing of What Will You Do

Most of us are familiar with the birth of Jesus from the biblical account. In Luke, we read that on that first Christmas an angel appeared to shepherds and tells them that the Messiah has been born in Bethlehem. They run to the village and see the baby Jesus.

While that account is beautiful, in both its telling and meaning, I’ve felt for a long time that it’s merely the surface layer of a much deeper story. Why did the angel tell the shepherds? Did Satan know about the birth? Did he try to stop the shepherds or even kill the baby Jesus?

Perhaps I will receive answers to those questions when I stand before God, but probably not while we’re here on Earth. Still, I wonder and, since I'm a writer, I took pen in hand and using the talents God gave me created an answer.

My story, What Will You Do, will appear in the Christmas in Time anthology coming out this October. Between then and now you can read more about the both right here. I hope you enjoy my contribution to the anthology along with the other six stories.

Return to Earth Cover Reveal!

Since the March release of Seekers of Earth, events have moved rapidly with the Guardian Knights of Terra series. As I mentioned above interest in the series has allowed for the third book to be written. Since we already had the name for the third book and wanted to continue with a design similar to Seekers of Earth and Recall the Earth we went ahead with the creation of the ebook cover.

Here, for the first time in public, is the cover of the third book in the Guardian Knights of Terra series, Return to Earth.

On the left we see Lucas with a serious look on his face. On the right is Rachel. She appears to be in a better mood, probably because she is returning to her home planet of Earth. The Space Needle, a local landmark, is behind her.  

I’ve plotted most of the book and completed the first chapter, but we don’t have a Return to Earth web page up (but I’m working on it) and we don’t have a release date, but I’m shooting for late this year.

Hopefully, it can be a Christmas gift!

We Have a Book Cover

The cover design for A Time to Endure has been approved and released.

Because of the enthusiastic response to Through Many Fires I immediately started writing the planned second book in the series. Titled, A Time to Endure, this next book is now my number one writing project. Click here to see a progress bar graph of the writing.

While I’m still busy with the manuscript, the graphic designer, Micah Hansen, has delivered the final cover design. The first book in the series, Through Many Fires, was done in shades of red and we decided to go with that theme for the second book. The stark background is not one particular scene in the book but suggests a tone of coming events. Click on the image to see a larger version.

A Time to Endure, book two in the Strengthen What Remains series, will be available on Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Google Play, and the iTunes Bookstore, in paperback, on Kindle, and Nook and most other ereader formats when released later this year.
