The Prequel


It was inevitable, really.

When you start off a trilogy with the protagonist reflecting back sixteen years ago to when an alien invasion happened, but he’s sixteen years into the future, past that, then, by necessity, a time travel is waiting.

I did not feel “released” to move on from the Dissonance trilogy after I had completed Volume III. I really didn’t. I needed to revisit it, and go back in time to where it all started.

I cannot tell you how much fun I’m having. The story is taking shape, and the most meaningful thing about it is that character who had died are alive again…younger…full of health and life. It was painful – exceedingly painful – to have to play God and kill them off. But to see them alive again brings such joy to my heart. YES, this is about an alien invasion and a post-apocalyptic environment about to happen, and YES there will be chaos, and YES there will be deaths that happen. But in so doing, I’m able to effectively resurrect beloved characters and allow my readers into their lives once more. I am absolutely THRILLED to be doing so.

At my current pace of writing, I expect to be completed with the prequel by this summer, and it’s called Dissonance Volume Zero: Revelation. I hope you truly, truly enjoy it, because it’s turning into something that really rounds out the trilogy nicely, and effectively makes it a quadrilogy. Speaking of going back in time, ask me in November of 2023 if I knew that by summer of 2024 I would have penned a quadrilogy, and I would have thrown a drink in your face.

So stick with me! Keep those well-wishes coming. I’m so thrilled to be back in the land of Dissonance, and before Dissonance Volume III: Renegade is released, know that I’m working hard on the genesis of the story.

I’m so excited to eventually share it with you!

Enlist now to stay tuned on the release of the novel.
