A Plug for My Work in Progress

Currently I am rather embroiled in writing my next book. (I have written two others, which are parts one and two of a story cycle. They are slightly amateurish but I am still proud of them.)

My current work of which I am around 56,000 words into is Part One of what may turn out to be as many as a 7 or 8 part epic series (My ideas are always way more epic than I can too justice to!). It concerns two children who are born on opposite sides of the world on the same day. Their names are Caleb and Christian, and little do they or anyone around them know, but they are predestined to both make the most crucial choice that life anywhere in the universe has ever before made. One has a life of tragedy and emotional emptiness, the other a hard life that is overcome with spiritual truth and love. They are the yin and the yang, the destroyer and the protector so to speak. The overarching story is one of epic scope and grandeur, that encompasses the fate of life as we know it, but it is also a narrow personal story of emotional struggle, and the question of overcoming hardship, and dealing with the problem of finding meaning, and living without love.

Book One is called 'Clockwork Heart' and is sorta like 'Batman Begins' in that it is an origins story detailing Caleb's life and how to came to be who he is. It has a lot of mystery and intrigue as paranormal events abound this newborn child and his father Jonathan is embroiled in a decidedly shady career that seems to wield a mysterious agenda that is worldwide in scope. His mother Mary is a Southern belle plucked from a life of violence and abuse by Jonathan and whisked into a high rolling money drenched world beyond her comprehension. So grateful she is to him that she asks no questions, not knowing exactly who her husband really is, and the fact that his job may be placing their only son in peril. Book Two is another Origins story but this time for Christian, tentatively titled 'Forever May Not be Long Enough'. When it's done I will likely make it available for free for anyone who is interested in reading it.
