A blurb about Genesis

The true test of Man, is to see if he can stand naked before himself without blinking.
The same trial of existence for a God, however, even one created, is if when he blinks, will he change or the world...

Publisher Blurb:
Genesis: Book One of The Kingdom Come Series, is an ambitious (at times made me crazy) speculative fiction story in the epic tradition of Dune, The Dark Tower and A Song of Ice and Fire. Blending various gritty elements of Steam/Dieselpunk and the brutality of sword-wielding Dark Fantasy into something all its own, this stand alone manuscript's cross-over appeal ranges from the Newbie, to the mature, Science Fiction and Fantasy book lover. And once caught in its exciting pages, you'll quickly learn what really separates Man from that which is truly Evolved.

Back Blurb:
After a year of laborious solitude and a conflict brought to the doorstep of his father's house, Jak, a Southlander of meek circumstance, will come to accept the future isn't set. Through abilities unnerving to any Areht, against enemies rising in every corner of the planet, he’ll be forced to resolve his destiny as one of five that can change the world. Such selfless transcendence isn’t easy, nor simply the heroic result of dark revelations shielded from him since childhood now exposed; rather, it's because of what’s undeniable, even to him. Like all great forces collected at the tip of the spear, the truth of his purpose and the price of his existence has a cost and there's no getting around paying it.

Overall Blurb:
Jak Hartlen, 19, the son of William and Mary, will face many thresholds of flesh and mind on his road to reaping The Whirl Wind; seeds of grief and guilt only now coming to fruition.
If only they’d know what they were doing... 
The Gan and their Areht who shape the world behind the scenes will hate him, because he's a threat they're not sure can be chained.  
The Pillars and their faithful who spread the world's leading religion will fear him, because his existence, once known, will challenge Ages of dogma and accepted history.
The Crimson King and its servants who seek to return to power, destroying all that remains of The White, will hunt him, because even in death, they're not sure he'll ever bow to The Dark.
                                                          —They All Should—
For as One of Five with the power to shake the world, they will hollow his heart and mind through countless sacrifice and vengeful selfishness.


  1. Very cool, Wade. I checked out a few snippets and the comments on Amazon. Sounds like you have a winner on your hands. :)

Finally, my review of Star Wars: The Force Awakens

This is going to be a stream of thought, rather than a planned out, book-report style review. I hope to cover several points, but, if I miss or neglect some, I'm sure you won't care—you've already read far too many reviews of this movie anyway. So, does it really matter that yet another unknown is throwing his Two Cents into the wind for whoever to read? I didn't think so. And, to further the point, the next time something like Star Wars gets placed in my lap, maybe then I'll have real room to critique. This is just for fun and because I'm a geek. For me, blogging about this stuff is the next best thing to sitting around with friends and going over and over all the little details for hours on end. I mean, I'd like to stay married. :)

Ok, first things first: I enjoyed this movie. To me, it was a solid B (reasons to follow) I enjoyed the return to Old Movie Magic. I enjoyed the equal mix of CGI and FX and Costumes and Settings and all that jazz. It was good.…

  The NaNoWriMo Diet

It's tempting to let this devolve into a humor piece and talk about my love affair with whiskey and how sometimes, when my brain won't shut-up and let me sleep, I bludgeon it into submission with liberal doses of Jameson. But no. I'm gonna keep this serious. Well, mostly serious.

My suspicion is that successful writers all have at least a little OCD. Who else would sit for hours on end mashing away at the keyboard with their face? What, you don't type like that? Weird.

Smarter writers (or at least those capable of obsessing over more than one thing at a time) will pay attention to their physical and health-related needs as well as their daily word count. Unfortunately I'm not one of those. I can either obsess about my health or work on a book. In the past I would write a book and then, in the time between writing and editing, exercise like mad in an attempt to shed some of the gained pudge. I used to joke that I gained ten pounds with every novel …


I have seen it. Better than expected.
