I had the pleasure of waking up and finding out that my Nine Year Baby is

Dystopian thriller FIRELANDS was first released last June from StoneHouse Ink.

Eighty years in the future, America has devolved into a totalitarian theocracy. The ruling Josephites clone the only seeds that grow in the post-apocalyptic climate, allowing their Prophet to control who eats, who starves, and who dies in the ritual fires that atone society.

Subsisting on the fringes, Archer risks violation and death each day as she scours the forest for game to feed her people. When a Josephite refugee seeks sanctuary in her home, Archer is driven to chance a desperate gamble. A gamble that will bring down the Prophet and deliver seeds and freedom, or end in a fiery death for herself and for everyone she loves.

Seeds are life . . . Seeds are power . . . Seeds are the only hope of a despairing people. What will Archer do for the seeds of freedom, and what will she justify in their name?

  1. Very cool – and congratulations. ‘Firelands’ is a fantastic novel and you deserve the recognition! Great to see it re-issued..The fact that your name’s bigger than the title in the re-issue is a wonderful endorsement – you, as author, and not any specific book you’ve written, becoming the marketing point.

    Am eagerly awaiting your and Holmes’ spy series.

  2. Congratulations! I have had Firelands on my Kindle for awhile now and just recently had a chance to sit down and start reading it. It’s a real page turner, I am loving it. 🙂
