Freedom/Hate is Now Available!

20 Apr

 

Freedom Hate - Full Res

I interrupt this blog filled with Batman v Superman, and Marvel v DC rants, to inform you that my latest book Freedom/Hate is now available for purchase on Amazon, in both Kindle and paperback formats!

The story is set several decades in the future. The world has changed. Terrorist attacks have contaminated crops, and the economy has collapsed. People are no longer in charge of putting food on their own table or a roof over their own head. They don’t even choose where they work.

The authorities are in control now. They are the providers. They make the rules, and they have created a society that will not question them. To do so is a crime.

Collin Powers is a young man whose instinct tells him to ask questions and seek answers. He has a thirst for knowledge and a love of books. As a low-level member of a rebel group, Collin is tasked with transporting books from one place to another. When one of those runs goes horribly wrong, Collin is forced to flee from the authorities. He is a fugitive, known to the world as a terrorist and murderer.

Libby Jacobs has nothing to do with any rebellion. She is a high school girl, whose life is hard enough without breaking any laws or questioning the authorities. Her mother is sick. Every day, her mother’s condition seems to worsen and the burden on Libby grows. Adding to Libby’s stress is her cousin, Uly. He is hiding something from Libby, and she knows it. His secret could endanger them all.

Freedom/Hate is book one in a six part series. Click Here to purchase your copy, or click on the book cover image above.

After you read it, I’d love to know what you think. Good or bad, all reviews posted to Amazon and Goodreads are very much appreciated. Every review helps an author understand their readers’ perspective, and build their audience.

There has been a lot of comic book movie talk as of late. Being the geek that I am, I have a lot of thoughts on the subject of comic book movies. I also happen to have a blog where I can rant all I want, and there is nobody to stop me. (insert maniacal laugh here)

You should probably expect more of these rants in the future. Just sayin’.

This rant is about the question that has been asked a million times over: “Is there any way for DC/Warner Bros to catch up with Marvel/Disney?”

The question is being raised because Marvel has made a lot of movies over the past decade, creating a Marvel Cinematic Universe that is all tied together. They’ve been pretty successful with these movies and they’ve made a ton of money. So naturally, people wonder if there is any way for DC to duplicate this success with their own movies.

The flaw in this question is in the assumption that DC is trying to achieve the same goal. Continue reading
