Finally! A New Update!
It has been far too long since I’ve updated this site, and now, I’m rebooting things in a big way.

First, the promotions for FROM THE ASHES have been hugely successful, with the book being the #1 most downloaded Nook book on five days in a row in January 2012 and hitting the Top 20 free list for Kindle in April.  It also charted in the Kindle Top 100 Paid lists in the Thriller and Action/Adventure categories, and between paperback and e-book sales and giveaways, FROM THE ASHES has moved roughly 90,000 copies since its debut last year.  A lot of that is due to fans like you helping me spread the word through online reviews, social media, and – of course – good old-fashioned word of mouth.  Thank you so very much for all your support and assistance in helping make FROM THE ASHES such a success in this very crowded marketplace.


Next, the current edition of FROM THE ASHES is about to be taken off shelves to make way for a big re-release with my new publisher, The Story Plant.  The new version of FROM THE ASHES will launch September 10 with a bold new cover, a slightly larger paperback format, and re-edited text that removes typos, expletives, and other line-item issues that unfortunately made it through the first edition’s editorial process.  I’ve also included a specially devised set of codes – inspired by Rockefeller’s codes in the book – that hold some key information for my next book, which will be released Spring 2014.  The Spring Book (as I’ll enigmatically refer to that project until I officially reveal its title in the coming weeks) is going to be one heck of a thrill ride, steeped in insider knowledge of some impressive international locales and ripped from tomorrow’s headlines.  Stay tuned for more information soon, or, if you can’t wait, see if you can decipher the codes in the FROM THE ASHES re-issue and get the scoop first!


As for my “Mormon book”, which I have posted about via Facebook over the past year and a half, it is still very much alive.  Originally titled THE DESERET BLUEPRINT and starring Jonathan Rickner when I finished it last November, it now has a new title and an awesome new protagonist and is currently being shopped around Big Six publishers in New York by my amazing new agent.  I am really excited to share more information about this blockbuster project with you, as it’s the culmination of seven years of research, travel, and writing, but we’ll save that until the build-up for that book’s release.  Please pray for the right editor to fall in love with this book soon, because it’s an adventure that I guarantee will thrill and engross you like few others have.  Seriously.  I’m crazy stoked about this book (and the new series it represents).


And finally, I will at long last be posting the long-promised behind-the-scenes segment from my research trips for FROM THE ASHES.  I do apologize for the long delay, but I hope that the new section will be awesome enough to have been worth the wait.  I’m particularly excited to have this opportunity to post it with the re-launch of my debut novel, and rest assured that – as research and travel-heavy as my books tend to be, I already have plenty of material for behind-the-scenes sections for “The Spring Book” and “The Mormon Book”, and I will be posting those along with those books’ releases for your supplemental reading pleasure.


Again, thank you so much for your continued support of me and my writing as I work to build my brand.  Whenever you recommend my books to a friend, leave an enthusiastic review online, follow me on Twitter, like me on Facebook, post about my books on social media, or request my books in your local bookstore, you help me reach a bigger audience and to grow as an author.  I also genuinely love hearing from you, so drop me a line via email or on social media to let me know what you think of my books.


There are exciting things on the horizon, friends.  Thanks for taking this ride with me.
