It’s been a long and eventful year since Finding Sage was released in March of 2014. One year later, the sequel A Gray Crusade is finally out! You can purchase it on Amazon here.
After a long writing process, a full nine months after the original release date, I’m proud to announce that the sequel to Finding Sage, A Gray Crusade, is finally available for pre-order!
The book will be released on March 16. I will have paperbacks available, although as of now, only the e-book is available for pre-order. To pre-order on Amazon, click this link.
I’ve decided to do something that is, if I may say so myself, rather remarkable. I’m offering Finding Sage for free.
It’s only today and tomorrow, so be sure to get your download while it still lasts. The download link is here.
I continue to be humbled by the things people are saying about Finding Sage. This is from a review that was posted on a book blog yesterday:
The time has come for book signings! The first shipment came to my house on Wednesday and I’m thrilled to start looking into doing book signings in my local area. And if you want one but don’t live around West Lafayette, IN, that’s not a problem. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can send you one. Due to the time-consuming nature of mailing them, however, I can only do 20 of these per month, so keep that in mind. The price is $14 including shipping.
As I hope you know, I’m hard at work writing the sequel to Finding Sage. Here’s a little update on how that’s going.
I’m loving the story. When I write, I’m not one of those people that can have an outline of everything that happens beforehand. I’ve tried to do that, but it just doesn’t work for me. Instead, I end up changing the outline so many times that I might as well trash it. So writing is an adventure for me, because I discover the story as I’m writing it. And I am really enjoying this story, and hopefully you will too!
This book follows two primary things that were left unanswered in Finding Sage. The first is the phoenix symbol. What does it mean? Why is it showing up in Silas’s dreams? Why did the prime minister have a pendant of it? What’s the significance? That is a big deal in this book, and the book also follows Grayson. After the debacle in New York, will he still pursue the life of his best friend? Does he still think that’s the right thing to do? What will happen when he finally faces that moment? Also in the story are some new characters that are a lot of fun, plus one returning minor character from the first book.
My original plan was to release this book in the middle of June, but alas, classes and my day job have gotten in the way, so I must push the date back. Now I’m hoping for the end of June or early July. Rest assured, I will get it to you as soon as I can!
So I leave you for now. If you want to hear from me more often, as I’m terrible about writing regular blog posts, sign up for my newsletter. Not only will you hear from me more often, but I also do things like cover reveals and title reveals early through the newsletter. I also have Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr pages, and I just started a Pinterest. Follow me on stuff. I like interacting with people, so don’t be shy!
I am proud to announce that within 12 hours, Finding Sage will be available for purchase on Amazon Kindle!
Finding Sage is the first novel I’ve ever published, and I’m very proud of it. It’s the tale of people, called rogues, who display supernatural abilities. This is in a dystopian future where the world is under a global government that hunts these people and executes them, imprisons them, or turns them into assassins. The book follows the stories of these extraordinary individuals, and their attempts to find more of a meaning in life than running from death.
It’s the first of four books in the series, and this one mainly follows Silas, a young man who has the ability to tap into other people’s brains, allowing him access to thoughts, memories, and brain function. It’s not as great as it sounds though–if he is around too many people at the same time, he becomes weak, susceptible to sensory overload. When a crazy-eyed hobo named Eli saves his life, he begins searching for the man who might hold the answer to his problems, who could help him not only escape from execution, but also find meaning in his life: Sage.
