Coming soon to a Kindle/Nook/iPad near you!
After entering the latter stages of editing the draft of “The Green Zone”, I realized that the manuscript was rather large (130,000+ words) and decided that it would be better as a trilogy. After going back and forth for a few days, I took the plunge and split the manuscript up.
The new trilogy will consist of three books (in order): “The Convention”, “The Green Zone”, and “The Declaration”.
The idea for new trilogy was introduced in my third book back in 2010 called “The Cell – Twilight’s Last Gleaming.” The events in the new trilogy take place several years before “The Cell” and set the stage for the America portrayed in it.
The overall synopsis for “The Sons of Liberty Trilogy” is:
After six years of a failed presidency, the United States of America teeters on the brink of another collapse – not another economic collapse, but a collapse of confidence in leadership. The healthcare system is in ruins, the borders are undefended against terrorists, the deficits and national debt are spiraling out of control, and the political system has grown increasingly unstable.
When the federal government shuts down over another budget conflict, a group called the Sons of Liberty issues an ultimatum to the Capitol to get their act together – or else. If the House, the Senate, and White House can’t resolve their differences and rein in the out-of-control bureaucracy, violent action will be taken. After the first shot is fired between Homeland Security and the Sons of Liberty, the capital erupts in violence.
As Washington, D.C. descends into chaos, a group of state legislators set out to hold a Convention of States in hopes of pulling the nation back from a rising civil war.
The first book (“The Convention”) is slated to be available on the Nook, Kindle, and iPad late in the Summer of 2014.
