Day 21: Currently Published Plots and more

booksI figured since it is getting closer to Halloween, I should make a quick list of the current publications I have and a brief idea as to the summary of them.

 

The Novels:

 

FLESH AND LEFTOVERS: While zombie incidents plague the world, the survivors must unite to prepare for a much bigger threat.

 

BLOOD, THE SECOND HELPING: Vampires have been a thing of legend, but throughout history they’ve played an important role.  Now a team of humans who have survived horrific incidents must seek out the vampire lord and destroy his clan.

 

BONES AT BREAKFAST: A sinister villain has evolved into a creature beyond imagination.  With his army of werewolf servants and allies, he will attempt to reshape the world in his image.

 

SOULS 4 SUPPER: The ghosts of countless people roam free in a desperate move toward the afterlife.  Can a small group of covert operatives surpass them to prevent the opening of Pandora’s Box?

 

DEVIL’S DESSERT: Hell’s demons have chosen earth as their final battlefield against the forces of heaven.  With humanity caught in the center of this eternal war, they will have to choose their own path toward survival or face extinction.

 

TECHNO FEAST: A supercomputer has evolved and taken control of all networked technology.  With the world at its command, humanity must find a way to combat the threat, by seeking out answers that have been hidden from the public eye.

 

Non fiction books:

 

NO, IT’S NOT. YES, IT IS: ARGUMENTS: A lighthearted look at arguing through personal experience will give you a few laughs, might teach you a thing or two, and help better your approach when disagreeing with someone.  At the very least, you will know how to deal with certain personalities.

ZOMBIE INCIDENTS: spinoff filling in back story of events in Flesh and Leftovers.

 

LEGENDS OF VAMPIRE: spinoff building on the world of Blood, The Second Helping.

Pandora’s Chaos Trilogy

Pandora's Chaos Trilogy coverTHE PANDORA’S CHAOS TRILOGY contains the previously mentioned three novels in my 31 Days of Halloween: SOULS 4 SUPPER, DEVIL’S DESSERT, and TECHNO FEAST.  It also has the added bonus of the novelized stories that are contained in the graphic novel spinoffs: GHOSTLY HAUNTINGS, DEMONIC ENTITIES, and FINAL UPGRADE.

 

To counter the order from the first trilogy, these three separate installments focus on the results of opening the fabled Pandora’s Box.  It is a complete counterbalance to the results of the first set, and now there is a new series of events culminating from that.  With order there must be chaos, but what is “chaos” really?

I wanted something different for the portrayal of the container.  Research about the story of Pandora and different takes on it was a lot of fun for something that was just an underlying theme.  Creating the characters of Gilgamesh and Pandora’s other associates at the time of the box’s creation felt right.  Perhaps this box existed.  Every legend has some roots in truth, so Atlantis seemed like an appropriate place to hide the Temple of Pandora.

The architects designed the box and the temple to prevent anyone from accessing what is inside.  Is it truly chaos?  Well that depends on the point of view of the individual.  A little hint.  It safely contains a rip in the very fabric of space that is a gateway to the afterlife.  Imagine the entities that could emerge from such a hole or a full bodied person leaping into it.  It’s pure terror.

Aside from the aqueduct, maze, and puzzle solving that would go into unlocking the box, Pandora’s box is unique in design (and for reason that you can find out in the first of these three books SOULS 4 SUPPER).  It is shaped like a pyramid that unfolds through a series of gears and intricate mechanical pistons.  (Special note: the gear design was actually an add on by my brother, Dan.  When he did the artwork I mentioned what it would look like in the book, and he added to it, so it made the description even better).

The events in this trilogy all stem from the quest to find the box and from opening it.  Check out PANDORA’S CHAOS TRILOGY in paperback at Amazon, Lulu or Barnes and Noble.  The digital download of the novels and extras are also available on Amazon
