The Tears of an Author for a Finished Book!

Writing books can be an emotionally draining experience. With all that has been going on in our life this year, we've hardly had time to properly celebrate the most exciting news of all. As of last Friday (April 30) at 9 minutes before midnight, Hunter Brown Book 3 was officially sent off to the editor. Hip, hip, hooray!

Early response from our publisher is that this is our best work yet.

The book sits at 110,000 words long and is by far my most personal of the three books. I found myself crying as we wrote the final scenes. At first I thought perhaps it was from fatigue or heightened emotions, so I decided to test it out on someone else. I called Allan on the phone and read the sequence to him. After I finished, there was a long pause on the other end of the line. It was so long, in fact, that I thought our cell phone had dropped its connection.

"Allan, are you still there? What did you think?" I asked hopefully. More silence. The realization that I had likely wasted my breath reading the chapter aloud to myself began to set in. Before I could curse the airwaves and hang up, Allan's quiet voice broke the silence.

"Yeah, I'm here," Allan replied. "I just...I'm choked up. That was really powerful."

I couldn't help but smile.

Somehow, through the magic art of story, our characters had become so much more than just words on the page, they began to live in us. Hearing the scene unfold stirred deep emotions in our soul and made us long for the goodness that we have written about. It was an amazing experience and one I can't wait to share with you, our faithful readers.

The book has been given a final title: Hunter Brown and the Eye of Ends! Below is a synopsis and mock book-cover design. We'll post up design progress on the book cover as its made.

In Hunter Brown and The Eye of Ends, the heart-pounding conclusion of Hunter's previous adventures begins with an even bigger surprise—his memory is gone. With no knowledge of his last visit to Solandria, Hunter must fight to piece together the growing puzzle of his past under the constant surveillance of an intimidating detective, who is more than what he seems. But what begins as a harmless search for memories quickly leads him into a deadly hunt for his missing father and a lost relic said to predict the story's end. Answers lie in the Eye of Ends, but one question remains: can the Eye be trusted? Will Hunter succeed in finding his father, or will the mysterious Watcher erase everything Hunter has fought for and everyone he loves, before the final page is turned?
5 Grows Up!

At least we only hope it is "growing up" and not "blowing up!"

Many of the faithful fans of our books series website have probably noticed we've had a few growing pains of late. Our most recent member count is 3,843 members (and growing!) The added activity has resulted in some rough stretches as our site has experienced some ups and downs.

In response, we are embarking on an in-depth upgrade that will both upgrade our hosting and software platforms. During this time, our interactive features (like Forums, Profiles, etc) will be intenionally disabled so that we can perform the upgrade without losing any new data that might happen in the meantime.

Thank you to everyone who is participating on the site and making it such a huge success! We hope to reward your patience during this down-time with a new, improved website.

Ordering books through will also be disabled during this upgrade.
