Book Updates

There has been a lot going on with The Foundations of Hope series. The Lethal Publishing Corporation has signed up with the Christian book distributor, FaithWorks. Through FaithWorks, Lethal Publishing will be offering the Christian bookstores and chains the hardcover's $4.99 price to continue the 'flood-the-market' campaign. I've listed some books out on Amazon at this price if anybody comes along this post and is interested. Look for lethal-publishing as the seller.

I also have one of the first endorsement quotes that will be listed on the softcover version of FotU.
"Faith of the Unforgotten is an action-feast set in a realm of Fantasy. Imagine Eragon melding with a Kung-Fu action flick, and you've got it! Leathel Grody's concept of a technology depleted world is marvelous, and his heroine, Rebekah Ann Smith is a terrific vehicle for the story Mr. Grody has to tell. If you love fantasy and a lightning-paced plot, give Faith of the Unforgotten a try!"

Now on personal stuff, I just got back from a book signing out at a Seattle Barnes & Noble. That was definitely a lot of fun and met some cool people out there. The Washington area is a beautiful place. So much evergreens wrapping around the large cities. I can't say traffic was the greatest, but thankfully I lived in the Silicon Valley for a few years so was used to that type of traffic.

I spent a good portion of my free time while out in Seattle finishing plotting out Book Two: Into the Darkness. I thought I had it all worked out in my head, but things change once they get on paper. ItD is going to be a blast.
