Viking Tomorrow – The Third Viking Age has Begun!

Buy From Amazon

I first announced this book about two and a half years ago, and it’s been ready for the world for at least a full year. So why am I releasing it now, instead of a flippin’ year ago? Timing. I wanted to make sure a story this epic had a nice chunk of space to pick up steam and carry sales into Christmas (along with Forbidden Island in December). ALSO, I pulled a Taylor Swift and killed my old self. If that reference confuses you, you probably don’t have a teenage daughter. Originally, Viking Tomorrow was going to be a Jeremiah Knight novel, but that experimental name didn’t pull its weight (he was a slacker), so I offed him and switched the author names to the actual duo behind the madness, myself and Kane Gilmour.

You might remember Kane from such hits as Ragnarok and Omega, the two bestselling Jack Sigler thrillers, and the Deep Blue stand alone. Well, now Kane and all of his crazy action and wild concepts is back, and the result is Val, a Viking heroine kicking ass through a post-apocalyptic landscape. That’s right. This is modern VIKINGS in a POST-APOCALYPTIC nightmarescape. If that’s not enough to sell you on the concept, check out the trailer, the promo graphics, the cover and the description below!

And if you want to help Viking Tomorrow sell a bunch and guarantee the sequel gets published, share the promo graphics we’re posting on Facebook, share the trailer (below), share the buy link and POST REVIEWS! Each one helps a lot, and if we hit 40 in the first week, Amazon will start pushing the book, too, which would be awesome.

SUMMARY:

The world is barely holding on. A century after a series of apocalyptic events, humanity is struggling to survive. In the frigid north of Scandinavia, people have returned to farming, fishing and fighting amongst themselves, living as their ancient Viking ancestors once did. But their days in the world are numbered.

The last tattered remnants of humankind have become barren. No new live births have occurred in over a decade. When the remaining population dies, the human race will end.

When a call goes out to the greatest fighters in the North, men capable of surviving a long journey and crushing any obstacle in their path, a young female berserker named Val takes up the challenge. With her eyes hidden behind red-lens goggles, she violently proves her worth, seizes control of a small band of fellow berserkers and heads south to claim her prize: the first glimmer of hope for a tomorrow.

Traveling deep into the wastes of Europe, surrounded by dangerous landscapes and the mutated creatures that populate them, they find themselves pursued by enemies determined to stop them at all costs. Attacked from without and betrayed from within, Val fights for the future, and if she fails, humanity fails along with her.

DISCOVER THE INFINITE

Buy From Amazon

As many of you know, the past year was rife with personal challenges for me, including being told I had a brain tumor (turns out I don’t) and some kind of whacky chemical imbalance. You can read about it here. I started writing Infinite during my decline. During the worst of it, I wasn’t writing at all, for a period of nearly three months. Then, while my mind sorted itself out and I processed some weirdly intense and out of control emotions, I finished writing the book.

The result is a story that, in some ways, parallels my own journey through despair. As a result it’s a little more character driven and explores deeper themes. That doesn’t mean there aren’t monsters, craziness, and mayhem starting in Chapter 1, just that there is more to it. Probably most comparable to The Distance.

INFINITE

Have you ever wondered what’s at the edge of everything? What if you could travel there? What would you find? These are the questions that inspired Infinite. William Chanohk never asked or even wondered these questions, but his ancestor did, so now I’m taking him on a trip without end. That last sentence will make sense…later.

Despite the circumstances of this book’s writing, I had a lot of fun exploring the infinite. The book anchored me, and now I’m thrilled to be sharing it with the world. Since it’s a more personal book than my others, I’m a little nervous about what the response will be (you can reassure me by posting reviews on Amazon…which will also help sales!), but anyone who enjoyed Apocalypse Machine and The Distance will feel right at home with Infinite. On to the story!

THE DISTANCE – Available Now (finally)!

distance-header

Buy From Amazon

For years, I have said that The Last Hunter is my favorite series. I have fond memories of writing the novel, still miss the characters years later, and when it comes to adaptations (comic books or movie) am very protective of the story. But I can no longer say The Last Hunter is my favorite book. Favorite series, sure, but The Distance is now my favorite novel (of mine). Keep reading to find out why!

The Distance’s path to publication has been tumultuous, not because no one wanted it, but because I didn’t have faith in publishers to do it right. When the book was written, it was under contract with a “big five” publisher imprint. But after novels published under my own imprint, Breakneck Media, started selling better than those published by the big publisher, I returned the advance and got the rights back. After that, another big five publisher offered to take the book, and tried to woo me with bestselling sales projections, but their covers were abysmal and I wasn’t convinced they could do a better job than I could…which is really what a writer should expect from a publisher.

So, in the end, two years after the book was completed, I decided to go it alone, which is a little nerve-wracking for me because it’s my wife’s first novel, and I turned down a big five publisher…twice. What does this mean for the book? In terms of production quality, nothing. I was hired to do the cover for the original publisher, so the packaging would be the same. As for the interior design, we’re creating a premium experience, both for the print book and the e-book, which is priced $6 LESS than either publisher had planned.
