Day 8 of #scrypthalloween looks at my short spinoff #book EVOLVED MUTATIONS. Some facts: 1) It was published on September 15th 2016. 2) the entire contents of the book are deleted scenes from my novel GENETIC MORSELS. I felt they worked better on their own. 3) one of the scenes came to me when I was standing overlooking #Philadelphia from the top of the Comcast building. I thought how horrible it would be if someone jumped, and it instantly became part of the story. 4) because this was based on people with extraordinary abilities I almost brought artists in to do another graphic novel, but decided it would have not made the due date.Instead I wrote it in a way where it could be converted into a comic version at some point if I desire down the line. 5) the cover is comprised of close up photos of my family’s eyes and altered to represent different super abilities. The top left is my son, then clockwise it’s me, my daughter, and my wife @homemadedelish .
Day 7 of #scrypthalloween focuses on my #novel THE THIRST OF CAIN. Some facts: 1) it was published on May 15, 2018. 2) I was awarded the “Best opening lines of a novel” for it. 3) after a lot of feedback and reader love for the characters of Cain and Lilith I decided to delve back into their history for one final outing in this book. 4) the plot originally didn’t revolve around time travel, but was going to feature finding out that the Garden of Eden was actually another planet. 5) @dpipito @pintsizedpages did the art for the cover and it was decided to use Stonehenge as the backdrop since it is integral to the plot.
Day 6 of #scrypthalloween takes a peek at my novel A COURSE FOR HUMANITY. Some facts: 1) It was written in the year 2000 but I shelved the idea for years to get it just right. 2) March 8, 2017 was the publication date with some tweaks to the story and tying it in to my main series of #books, 3) The cover is a photograph of plains with the green energy as an interpretation of time ripples featured in the plot. 4) the recurring theme of “The truth was lost” was a dig at how divided we’ve come because of social media and a lack of fact finding, 5) the book was my response for the population of the world to open up their eyes, accept and understand differences, and move forward for the betterment of all.
