Screenplays, Trilogies & Prequels, oh my!

Well, I’m done! Just awaiting feedback from a few people including my beautiful wife on Dissonance Volume III: Renegade, and then it will publish on my 51st birthday, May 18th. (Fitting, isn’t it? Area 51 is full of aliens….my book is about aliens. Yeah. That.)

I mean it when I say that Dissonance Volume III: Renegade is POWERFUL. It’s going to blow you away!

BUT! I didn’t feel “released” from the trilogy yet, and I love where this story has gone, so I’ve begun work on a prequel. It is called….drum roll please… “Dissonance Volume Zero: Revelation.” It’s going to cover when the gorgons actually arrived, and the mayhem that ensued. And, for your viewing pleasure, check out the cover!

ALSO! GREAT NEWS, if you haven’t heard already….I’m partnering with Alan Roth of Act Two Media to develop a screenplay of Dissonance Volume I: Reality for pitching to producers of streaming services like Netflix, Paramount+, Apple TV, Prime Video, etc.. I’m THRILLED with this development and ask for your prayers that it will go well and that we’ll get some interested parties. SUPER stoked about this.

Thank you for your support! Let me know what you think of the trilogy so far! How do you like the cover? What do you think about the news of the screenplay being created? Let me know in the comments below!

Thanks again!

Just a book about aliens?

Anything but!

With “Dissonance,” I really wanted to write a story about justice vs. revenge. I think we often confuse the two. My series takes place during a post-apocalyptic time where the earth has been ravaged by aliens that we’ve called “gorgons” due to their ability to telepathically freeze you where you stand, and consume you at their leisure. They’re truly terrifying.

But the subtle undercurrent, the referendum being made, is that even after 16 years of alien invasion, we’re still not getting along. We’re still living in dissonance. And there are those who are still confusing justice with revenge in their quest to solve the issues they see around them.

Check out Dissonance Volume I: Reality and Dissonance Volume II: Reckoning today, before Volume III drops in June 2024. Volume III is currently at 374 pages! It is truly one heckuva whopper. I can’t wait to send it out there and share it with the masses, because it’ s heavy. It’s epic. It’s awesome. Spoiler? Mankind wins back the earth. YAY!

Check out my series today – and thanks for your support!
