To skip ahead and read the teaser prologue click here here.

In conjunction with the #WeWriteBooks series I am writing over on the Go Teen Writers blog, I will be writing the book THIRST on my website. I tried this once before with the Onyx Eyes story, and while I’d love to continue with that tale, it’s a little too complex for my schedule right now. So I’ve chosen to write THIRST instead. This is a stand-alone prequel to The Safe Lands series (Captives, Outcasts, and Rebels). THIRST follows a teenage Papa Eli as he and his friends struggle to survive the Great Pandemic.

I will announce new chapters of THIRST on my blog, but I won’t be posting them here. If you want to read along, subscribe to the THIRST: weekly story blog by clicking here. For now, here is a little more about the book and a very short, teaser prologue. Chapter one will be posted next week.

 

 

In matters of life or death, what do you thirst for? 

A waterborne disease has sprung up in every corner of the globe, decimating the human race. Eli McShane, a young survivor, journeys toward Colorado and the rumored location of a clean water source. When he arrives, he finds the community in an unending state of celebration. Until someone dies. When the people realize the disease is still among them, panic ensues. Rules are established to keep people safe. Eli wants to leave, but the landowners won’t let him. Only one thing is certain. This “safe land” is not so safe after all.


PROLOGUE

Six days into our wilderness survival adventure in the La Plata Mountains of Colorado, Comet Pulon passed by the earth. We had no way of knowing that it had come much closer than expected, that it had forever changed our planet, and that it had left a killer among us. Oblivious, the twelve of us camped in a clearing, cheered as the bright yellow fireball soared overhead, roasted marshmallows, and toasted with canteens of water we had purified ourselves.

And as we celebrated in awe of nature’s majesty, the rest of the world began to die.

Darkness Reigns (The Kinsman Chronicles): Part 1

Darkness Reigns (The Kinsman Chronicles): Part 1

(ebook only, releases December 2015) The god of the soil is furious. Volcanic eruptions, sinkholes, earthquakes--everything points to his unhappiness. At least this is what the people of Armania in the Five Realms believe. Amidst the unsettling state of the world around them, the princes of Armania live their lives focused more on who will claim the throne after their sickly father, King Echad, dies. That is until Prince Wilek's concubine turns up dead--beside her, a bloodied message that seems to have come from the mother realms. More info →

Countdown To The End: 1 Rune

1 Rune

When an Armanian woman is murdered in Castle Everton, she left a clue drawn in blood on the ground beside her. A Magonian rune. The problem is, Magonia is the enemy of Armania and runes forbidden by law. That makes Prince Wilek’s task of translating the rune nearly impossible. A few weeks later, Prince Trevn finds this same rune marking on a stone dropped by his cousin. Is this a coincidence or a clue to the murder?

You can find out in King’s Folly, part one of which releases tomorrow in the form of the ebook Darkness Reigns.

2 Vows

Prince Trevn was raised in the realm of Sarikar as a gesture of peace between the two nations. But now that his father has called him home, he and his best friend Hinck have made a pact. They marked each other Renegades by scarring the letter “R” into their hands and making two vows. First, not to let the realm of Armania change them and, second, to change the realm of Armania for the better. You can read more about Trevn and Hinck in Darkness Reigns.

3 Princes

King Echad of Armania has three sons: two that are of age and one that is nearly so. The king does not believe in the right of first blood to inherit the throne. He will choose his Heir when he is ready and not a moment sooner, though the longer he tarries in making a decision, the more divided the realm of Armania becomes.

Prince Wilek Hadar is the oldest living son of King Echad and his first wife Queen Brelenah. He is twenty-four years of age and works closely with his father in matters of the realm. He is betrothed to Lady Zeroah Barta of Sarikar, and the two are set to marry upon Wilek’s twenty-fifth ageday. Prince Wilek is hopeful that his father will declare him Heir as he is a very responsible young man and cares for his people. He also hopes that if he someday becomes king of Armania, he can put a stop to the barbaric human sacrifices his father insists upon each month.

Prince Janek Hadar is the oldest living son of King Echad and his second wife Queen Laviel. He is twenty years old and spends most of his time at Seacrest, a small castle on the ocean a few leagues south of the city of Everton where the he holds court with his loyal young followers. Prince Janek cares nothing for hard work and responsibility. He rather enjoys needling his brothers and playing pranks. He was betrothed and nearly married, but the engagement ended in a scandal that was entirely Prince Janek’s fault. He claims to have no interest in politics whatsoever, though his actions do not always match this assertion.

Prince Trevn Hadar– is the only child of King Echad and his third wife Queen Thallah. The youngest prince spent his childhood in the realm of Sarikar, a gesture of peace between the two nations. But now that Trevn’s fifteenth ageday is approaching, his father the king has called him home. Trevn fancies himself a renegade, who stands against the confines of the establishment by opposing everything fashionable and conventional. This gets him into plenty of trouble, especially with his mother, who is desperate for her son to be well-liked and connected to the court of King Echad.
