I've published my first novel, Method of Life. Buy it, read it, review it: www.amazon.com/dp/B0093JL7ZQ


The Synopsis:
In The Future:
There was no great war of nations, no thundering voice from the sky unleashing a rapture of judgment on the kneeling masses, and no great extinction level event of cataclysmic proportions. The Fall of Man came incrementally over half a century, in the form of economic and social decay, spiraling civilization into collapse without so much as a whimper.

At least that's the story people believed.

Many had tried throughout human history to control the world. Dictators had conquered half the globe and free men had seen their efforts squandered by the selfish masses. Never had either side done as much to unite humanity in common cause, as Jacob Morrison. Where they had failed, he succeeded, binding humanity in a single effort to halt his reign of destruction across the world.

Together, they repaid his treason with blindfolded gunfire. And after a time, all that remained of his legacy was a son that had never known his father and the broken world left to rebuild.

The Method of Life:
Caleb Johansen has spent his life hidden away from those who might wish to see him answer for his fathers crimes against the world. In an effort to to blame anyone for their poor lot in life, the past has finally caught up with him in the town of Rosa. A resettlement camp abandoned by the government and turned self sufficient community, Rosa is an island amid the wasteland that stretches out between the privately owned Districts, where a lucky few live lives of luxury.

As his ailing guardian prepares him for the next step in his life, Caleb must entrust his future to soldiers of fortune hired to ensure his protection. Harmon McCullough is such a man, though not without a conscience and the understanding of the larger stakes in play and the risks involved for the band of brothers standing with him and friends on the wrong side of his mission.

Creasy is one such friend, and must contend with the one obstacle Harmon presents, a currency not in great supply. Dispatched from the District New Haven to take Caleb into custody by any means necessary, Harmon and Creasy will meet for the last time in Rosa, both with the realization that nothing can stand in the way of completing their missions.

Caught in the middle of their everyday lives, Alaster and Veda Nelthrope must contend with being swept into the whirlwind of danger sweeping through Rosa. With problems of their own, their lives may never be the same as the interaction with events unfolding around them force resolutions from aspects of their lives they both had been afraid to face.

One night will change their lives forever and by the time the sun rises, their worlds will never be the same.

I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone that has favoritied my work, clicked that watch button, and left a comment.  We all want people to like the things we make and that shows that some of you do, so thank you.  It means a lot to me.  I'll try to get better this year in completing more work, commenting on other work I enjoy, and hopefully have some more writing to exchange for that money you were going to spend anyway. ;) 

2014 will be a big year for The New Haven Chronicles - Project.  I can hardly wait to share the New Haven universe with you, particularly parts that I haven't shared with anyone…ideas and concepts that exist in the story only and have no visual component...yet.  Perhaps it will all have a visual component one day.  That remains the ultimate goal for this project, though at this point it remains to be seen how or even when that will manifest itself.  I've set aside certain story elements that take place outside the main story, so that some sort of film project could happen without having to tackle and/or retell the entire series.  Creating the necessary 3d assets remains a challenge, however it's certainly one that can be overcome, in time or given the appropriate funding. 

Anyway, I'm beginning to ramble here.  I just wanted to say thank you, to those that have supported me this year.  So thank you.

2014 - New Haven is coming.
