I don’t want to regale you with dialogue, so without further ado…
Welcome to ETERNAL SHADOW (FALL OF GODS #1)!
This cover was designed by Anamaria Stefan, a designer who was selected among a select group of finalists from a contest I ran via 99designs.com. The final six selections I had to choose from were REALLY good - this decision was very hard. In the end, Anamaria’s creation came out on top. It’s a decision I am incredibly proud of since this will be THE face of my book. To put it simply, I love it.
The title change (it was originally called THE BASKING) was one that wasn’t made lightly at all. The decision to come up with a new title - and with it, the series title which didn’t yet exist - was based on one universal piece of feedback I received from everyone that read the book: my alpha/beta readers, my editor, and my CP. The feedback was the original title was just confusing - because nobody could figure out how it tied to the story as a whole. After talking it through with my wife and CP some more, I finally made the call. The new title - as you’ll all soon learn in the future - is a far better reflection of the story and the events that transpire.
I also decided to nix the use of “trilogy” in my series title. Why tie myself down to three books when there could be more?
Speaking of the future…
November 9th, 2019 is the official publication date for ETERNAL SHADOW.
On launch day it will be available in both paperback and ebook formats from Amazon and Barnes & Noble. I’m also hoping to get paperbacks stocks in a few local independent bookstores in the Bay Area.
I also plan on allowing people to pre-order my book, too. Links aren’t yet available as I haven’t completed my book profiles on the aforementioned sites, but everyone will know about the links becoming available once they are! That said, I also plan on selling a special “pre-order edition” which would be shipped directly from me to you. This special version of my book will:
Include a customized bookmark, and
Have a personalized message.
I also plan on throwing in one more piece of swag, but I haven’t yet figured out what that will be. I supposed it’ll be a surprise when you receive my book in the mail! =)
Finally, I wanted to share my book’s blurb which will be on the back cover. Enjoy! I cannot wait to share more information with you as it comes.
What would you do if the world was going to end in ten years? For Jennifer Epstein, a by-the-books senior researcher at SETI, there is only one answer: prevent the apocalypse from happening. Pluto, Neptune, and Uranus were destroyed by an alien threat. The deck was stacked against humanity before the cards came out of the box.
But Jennifer isn’t alone. She has Samantha Monroe, her excitable but brilliant colleague. From South Africa, CEO Muzikayise Khulu of Khulu Global supplies his vast resources to the ultimate race for survival. The three find themselves in an unlikely alliance while political brinkmanship, doomsday cults, and untested technologies form ever-growing obstacles.
Will humanity unite to face the greatest challenge of their time, or will it destroy itself before the alien ship arrives?
