The Zumbathon for Harvey

Reality’s Fire Cover and Blurb

My new book being published by Splashdown Books is due to hit the shelves in June, just days away. But we have a preview of what is to come!

First, we have the new cover for the final book in The Reality Chronicles, Reality’s Fire. Cool, eh? Credit goes to Grace Bridges for the great cover.

And of course we have a blurb to introduce it:

The Day shall declare the reality revealed by fire…

Destinies are forged in the dark night of the soul. Kaylee and Nathan pursue a zombified Crystal to ensure her safety. A vision of death propels their mother, Gabrielle, to chase them in order to prevent its fulfillment. Her wizard friend, Josh, accompanies her to keep his promise to protect her. A mysterious religious leader wants to seduce Kaylee to violate her morals. And a demonic being seeks to bury the reality of the ring through temptation and deceit. Through their twisting journeys, each encounters their destiny. Including the ring.

…Reality’s Fire is revealed, and no soul can hide from its judgment.

And that’s not all! No, today, for free, you can get a preview sample of the book! Click here to check out the opening scenes.

So, save your money. It will be available soon! Watch here for more info as it becomes available.

And I also want to take this opportunity to thank publicly those who have had a hand in helping shape and bring this book to its final form. First, the critiquers on the old Notebored.com forum. You know who you are, more than I do. My primary critique partner who invested a lot in the initial edits from rough draft, Selena. And a special thanks to Grace Bridges and any at Splashdown Books who had a hand in editing, offering suggestions, or otherwise on the cover, blurbs, and story. You’ve all put in a lot of work that I pray you’ll feel the investment was worth it, not just monetarily-wise, but in touching people’s lives as well. This book would not be what it is without all these people’s input and support. And of course, I thank my family, my wife and God for their support. I pray He will use it to accomplish His will, whatever that might be for each person who reads it.

This is a bit of a milestone for me, since this will constitute my first, full-fledged, completed series. But have no fear. This is not the end for the Reality World either. Another series has been spun from it, and will be on its way in the future. We’re not done yet.
