Just remember –
always has layers
I fear that I’m
out of favor
And part of me believes that it’s
to be me
Who else understands my mind
than this heart
Apart from God alone
Independence from my
now and forevermore
Rejoicing with the family I
In this summertime
while at home
The leaves fully green and
to the sun’s perpetual
I ought to care for my neighbor
who hurts from hunger
and feels utterly
I understand solitude better than
I used to, cousin
It feels dreary and dark allnightlong
I pray for you neighbor
your family and yours
For we are all connected in
While it lasts
The new book came in a wave of anticipation from my publisher yesterday. Blasting comparisons to summer reads for teens, young adults, and beyond! I was ecstatic to see it go up on their site first yesterday at: ELectioPublishing.
Swimming the Echo is near and dear as it encompasses parts of southern Kentucky, including caves like Mammoth. It makes me appreciate the memories of exploring at a younger age. I hope it does the same for you.
*with every paperback copy ordered
Other retailers will add the book to their databases in the coming days!
I’m thrilled for those already sharing the book and reading it! Feel free to post pictures online of your travels with this one. Thank you.
As promised earlier on social media, my new book cover for Swimming the Echo is available for viewing on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and right here. The actual book will go live on Amazon, eLectio Publishing, and in brick and mortar stores on May 30th. I’m thrilled to share this update.
In March, it was announced that Wheelman would get a facelift.
Today, I shared the NEW Wheelman cover on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. But, I also wanted to share a brand new image I received from my publisher for my newest work, Swimming the Echo, which launches this month (5.30.17) with eLectio Publishing!
The image for Swimming the Echo will be shared online at 4pm today. I hope you are as excited as I am. These works of fiction are something I look forward to sharing with you.
Currently, Wheelman and Baptisms & Dogs: Stories are both available as Kindle ebooks for $5 total!
Share the love. Take a book on vacation.
A Good Person with Aplomb is Rare
How many self-confident people in stressful situations do you know?
Now remove Kim Kardashian.
How many people do you have left?
Good people with good intentions. Those who are levelheaded when life presents Amazonian rainforest conditions.
Again, the Kardashians are not the best company.
Think about someone you really, truly respect.
Billy Graham is a good example.
Now, think about how Billy Graham would handle the hardest parts of your Monday.
Calm. Cool. Collected.
These are the people you want to be more like. The people who would hold the door for you and ask about your weekend.
Join me in stepping away from infamy. Even for a day.
The world will take notice, because it’s different. It’s not the same. It’s not popular, but it’s not normal. Do this life with poise, a calm demeanor.
Stop asking the world what it needs and pray about what burns deep inside your core being. What screams for your heart. See it. And do those things.
Reform our minds
And we can
In a day where
Sounds made up
Made to cover
Just as the fires
in a controlled burn
So, too, can we
And improve this cycle
season of life
Where the winds of change
Seem capable of
Following last month’s update about the release of my next novel, Swimming the Echo (5.30.17), I wanted to give another little update regarding the WHEELMAN paperback version. I’m currently in the works for finding a new cover design for it, and I’ll try to share that look (and its reprinting) soon!
In the meantime, the e-book version is alive and kicking OVER on Amazon FOR 2.99!!
Thanks for reading.
In a little over 3 months (5.30.17), my newest novel, Swimming the Echo, will be hitting bookshelves, and I wanted to give you as much notice as possible.
This novel will delve into more backstory of the fictional town of Seton, Kentucky (first featured in my story collection, Baptisms & Dogs (2014)), and the adventures of one youth who takes it upon himself to explore the terrains of love and loyalty.
Here’s an early synopsis:
IT’S AN ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME.
When a summer job to explore Mammoth Cave lands in Cade Rainy’s lap, he doesn’t think twice.
THE TEEN FROM SOUTHERN KENTUCKY MAKES A BREAK FOR IT.
But when he finds his dad is connected to a man working at Mammoth, Cade discovers there’s more to this trip than meets the eye.
THE CAVE IS JUST THE START.
Cade sets out to map the real route of twisted lies through fissures and stalactites, battling claustrophobia and bats.
EXPLORE. ADVENTURE. DON’T DIE.
EXPLORE. Don’t die.
