Other tabs (Series, Characters, Story) have much more detailed and comprehensive information. This tab discusses the book in the series at a very high level. I encourage you to click on other tabs for additional information. You may also view a Preview on Amazon for a deeper dive into the content itself.
Book 1 – The Gathering of the Seas
All purchase options are shown on the Preview-Buy tab.
The Gathering of the Seas is foundational to the series. I take time to develop the initial characters (see comments within the Series and especially within the Characters), aspects of their personal backgrounds, their struggles, their successes, and how they come to know one another. The team they form, and its reason for existence, are important building blocks for the Series and the developing story.
Within The Gathering of the Seas, I expose the reader to additional details surrounding the antagonists. They are an assemblage of evil: the bad guys are not heroes, and exhibit traits closer to that of sociopaths or worse. However, the issues in the work run much deeper than the shallow platitudes of “we are citizens of country ABC, culture DEF, and belief structure GHI, therefore we are the good guys.”
A Complimentary Reading Group guide is also included for those wishing to discuss topics raised or implied in the work. This optional guide works in concert with material in the work itself and the Back Matter.
The paperback edition – front and back cover (a barcode is added on the bottom right of the back cover during printing).
Book 2 – “Noodling underway”
Coffee pot percolating … that isn’t entirely true … I just liked the ring of “percolating” for creative thinking. I use a pour over coffee preparation for my home brews. With the right beans, grind, and technique, this product makes a great cup of coffee. Realistically, what’s a morning (at least in my world) without a good brew of coffee?
