Today my fourth novel, Against All Silence, is out from Adaptive Books!
This was perhaps the hardest book I’ve written yet. See, the previous book, The Silence of Six, was published shortly after my first child was born, so this is the first novel I wrote entirely while trying to keep a little person alive and happy. I was a stay-at-home dad while writing the early drafts of this book, which as you can imagine was quite challenging. Then I had a full-time job, and I was still the primary caregiver for my kid (and a new puppy), which has been even more demanding.
Beyond all that, I also wanted to make this book even better than the first one, both familiar to fans and different enough to make it fresh. Did I succeed? You tell me…
There has been a little confusion about when Against All Silence is actually coming out, due to a new partnership between my publisher and Barnes & Noble. Basically, you can buy the book exclusively at Barnes & Noble stores everywhere and online at BN.com beginning today, but if you want to pick it up elsewhere, such as at Amazon.com or your local indie bookseller, you will have to wait until Feb. 17, 2017. You can read more about this unique deal at the NY Times. Similarly, B&N currently is the only place to get the paperback edition of The Silence of Six with its creepy new cover.
Some other goodies: You can still read two short stories in the SOS series for free at Wattpad right now! The first, “SOS”, is a prequel to The Silence of Six, and the second is a novella titled “DoubleThink” that bridges that book and Against All Silence.
Regardless of how and where you get Against All Silence, thank you for reading!
