Day 29: CONSUMED BY WAR

IMG_2715[1]img_e27171.jpgDay 29 of #scrypthalloween takes a look at my most recent #novel CONSUMED BY WAR. Here are some facts: 1) it was published on June 21, 2019. 2) the cover art done by none other than @dpipito of @pintsizedpages features his face and the back of his head on the reverse side. 3) I wanted a book that would focus on all eras of battle, so it begins at the near dawn of man all the way until present day with each chapter focusing on a different time period. 4) some of the historical and mythical influences in the plot are: Atlantis, the Dead Sea scrolls, Jarngreipr Gauntlets, Chrysaor Blade, Roman gods and Achilles, Pinaka Bow and Robin Hood, Draupnir ring, Blackbeard, the Man in the Iron Mask, Baba Yaga, the Bezoar stone, Russian Civil War, Nostradamus bowl, Hitler and the dawn of World War II, and the Roth Ramach Wheel. Of those mentioned, some were illustrations in the book provided by my talented cousin @vaughn_casons_creations . 5) Quotes relative to and before each chapter are taken directly from Sun Tzu’s The Art of War.

IMG_0719[1]It’s release day for my new novel CONSUMED BY WAR!

Here’s the description: Since the dawn of time there has been conflict driven by something sinister behind the scenes. When two men cursed with immortality discover secrets hidden in the Dead Sea Scrolls, one of them uses the knowledge in an attempt to bring humanity to judgement. In a race that spans time, these two eternals travel to various locations around the globe to seek out ancient artifacts of legend. They meet and inspire key historical figures, while leaving their marks on history and igniting wars. No matter who becomes victor of this conflict, one thing is for certain… humanity won’t be prepared for what’s to come.
