Into the River Lands: Darkness After Series Book II

Many readers of the The Darkness After have asked if there was going to be sequel, and it has been my intention all along to continue this story as an ongoing series parallel to The Pulse Series, which of course, involves a different set of characters in the same grid-down scenario.

Although originally aimed at the young adult market by my publisher, The Darkness After has been well-received by adult readers as well. The only real difference as far as young adult vs. a general adult audience is the age of the characters anyway. In this case, the main protagonists, Mitch Henley and April Gibbs, are both under twenty, but are in a world where survival is up to them and them alone. Readers of the first book will know that Mitch has superb skills as a hunter, despite his age. Those who enjoy survival stories that involve hunting, stalking and tracking will enjoy this one. Unlike The Pulse series, this story is all about living off the land in the woods, and the title, Into the River Lands refers to the deep river bottom swamp lands of Mississippi that Mitch knows so well.


Into the River Lands will be my next book release for 2015 and it is scheduled for publication on June 11.  I'm shooting for bumping that up a bit to sometime in May, but either way, it's not far out and you can preorder your Kindle copy for just $2.99 on Amazon, or by clicking on the cover image at the top of the sidebar to the left. There will be a paperback version available as well when the ebook is released.

  2. Went to Barnes & Noble to get an update when the book will be available - no news yet. Ordered a copy of ASTRAY THE HERD - looks like an excellent read. Tried to order LIVING ON ISLAND TIME, but they apparently only have one copy in their warehouse and the person told me with one copy, they would likely just say 'We can't find it' rather than look. An honest answer (but lazy!) :^)

    I'll keep looking - thanks.

  3. Thanks for your interest and for looking for the book. It will probably be later in June before the new book is in the Barnes & Noble system. Amazon is probably your best bet for finding On Island Time, as it is ten years old at this point.

  5. Finished that ASTRAY THE HERD - thought that it was a good expenditure of FROGSKINS. :^)

  10. Finally got them last week (shipping snafu). Enjoyed both of them, though the 'hero' in sailing book had me muttering to myself, lol. Good job sir.
