New Release of Blood Numbers: The Aleph Null Chronicles: Book Two

The release of Blood Numbers: The Aleph Null Chronicles: Book Two is now available on Kindle, with Nook and Print to come soon.

Blood Numbers Back Jacket

Sid is the Aleph Null, his power of Black Numbers awakened after the defeat of Father Mansico and the Korpor, but he cannot yet manipulate those numbers. He journeys with his friends Crowdal, Melinda, Mrs. Wessmank, Maelon and Writhgarth to a faraway land that may hold the key to his powers. Along the way he meets a powerful woman who awakens his first feelings of true love, but who may also be the one destined to destroy him.

Sid is pursued by evil forces from all directions. His former childhood friend, Tris, now rules the Oblate and commands a power of numbers equal to, if not greater than his own. He also controls the seductive yet violent Korpor, and together they are weaving a plot to capture Sid and take control of his Black Numbers. 

Sid is also hunted by a sadistic and violent warlord and his death squad who has his own plans for Sid. But worst of all, a forgotten and ancient evil has been unintentionally freed from its millennia-long prison, a nightmarish being that has one purpose...
To destroy the wielder of Black Numbers.

New Release of Black Numbers: The Aleph Null Chronicles: Book One

The long-awaited new release of Black Numbers: The Aleph Null Chronicles: Book One is now available on Kindle, with Nook to come soon.

It will be available in Print in a week or two. This is Edition Two of Black Numbers. I have completely rewritten it, added new chapters, and it has gone through a complete professional edit.

Thanks everyone.
Kind regards

Another milestone to publishing Black Numbers and Blood Numbers

Hi everyone,

Great news! I have completed the final drafts of Black Numbers: The Aleph Null Chronicles, Book One, and Blood Numbers: The Aleph Null Chronicles, Book Two.
Yesterday I created two brand spanking new covers for both books (look to the right of the main page of my blog to see them).
I am looking forward to meeting my publish date of early May, 2013 for both books.
Then it is on to book three in the series.

Best wishes!

Hello friends,

I am excited to announce the re-release of BLACK NUMBERS: The ALEPH NULL Chronicles, Book One in May 2013. Since leaving my publisher in April 2012, I have taken the opportunity to rewrite this book to improve many areas, including fixing POV issues, a few editing errors, and so on that I noticed after it was published in 2011. I also expanded upon the storyline in existing chapters, as well as added a few new chapters. I am excited about these changes and very happy with the quality of BLACK NUMBERS now!

Also look for the new release of BLOOD NUMBERS: The ALEPH NULL Chronicles, Book Two in May 2013 for the continuing adventures of Sid and Crowdal, as well as a host of new characters.

I hope to release BROKEN NUMBERS: The ALEPH NULL Chronicles, Book Three in May 2014, and the conclusion to the series called BEYOND NUMBERS: The ALEPH NULL Chronicles, Book Four in May 2015.

I will also make my new website live in May 2013.

Thank you for your continued support.

Kindest regards

Wow, it has been a long time since I've written here. Time goes by so very quickly, doesn't it?
A lot has been going on over the past six months. I completed BLOOD NUMBERS, book two in the BLACK NUMBERS series, and I am no longer with Fantasy Island Book Publishing, so I will be publishing both books together in a few months, releasing them independently.
Due to some problems with both of my hands and arms, I've not been able to spend much time on the computer over the past nine months. But I have been still working a little here and there on my writing.
I will write more in a bit.
Best wishes to you all.

Signs of the Apocalypse #14 – Devastated Cities

I am hosting a blog post by the amazing Angela White. Please enjoy. Thank you. Dean

Signs of the Apocalypse #14 – Devastated Cities

One sure sign of the Apocalypse is devastated cities. These images linger in our mind, showing awful visions of what the world could be like. When disasters strikes, people are drawn to the reports and stories that come in the aftermath, and they stare, sure it’s not real.

After the Apocalypse, there won’t be any doubt. Scenes like the one in the excerpt below will become common-place and another challenge for survivors still searching for food, water, and family. For the groups that have to travel into these apocalyptic landscapes, the danger will be at incredible levels. Avoiding these deadly landmarks of a world gone by should be a priority, but for those who have to venture inside, heavily armed and with a large amount of fighters is the best way to go.

"Seven very gifted survivors are destined to rebuild their country after a nuclear apocalypse...If they can stay alive long enough to find each other. Impossible to put down." - The Review Blog

“You should watch your six on this run… closely.”
“You know something I don’t?”
She shook her head, daze clearing. “It’s just a feeling about a bad decision.”
He smiled uneasily. “We make those everyday now.”
They laughed halfheartedly, but he took her words to heart. “I’ll keep you out of the ugliness as much as I can.”
She nodded, warming. “I know that. I need a map.”
Adrian pulled one from his pocket, putting the tape player away. “We’ll let the camp get out of sight, and then we’ll head down. You’re solo again, on this run. Be in the mess in half an hour.”
He turned from her many question - like what happened if she couldn’t convince them to come out and at least talk. She went slowly back to her blazer, looking from the map to what used to be Little Rock, Arkansas.
There were no landmarks to use, the entire city was crumbled on top of itself like broken Lego blocks and it was impossible to tell where one building started and another ended. There was nothing she could see to navigate by, except the Arkansas River, which was literally surrounding Little Rock on three sides due to post-war flooding. That ugly mass of scummy liquid, which she knew they would have to cross when they were done here, would be a nightmare for Safe Haven. Cars, homes, businesses, and bodies were a part of the riverbed forever and it would be nasty, diseased water, full of awful surprises.

Full of realistic and fantasy situations, the Life After War series is a combination of more than 7 genres, so there’s a good chance of everyone liking it and learning a few things about survival at the same time. You can get a free copy at the link below, of the first book in the series. It’s free for all of this year to celebrate the possible end of the world on 12/21/2012.

Adrian’s Eagles Three months after the War of 2012, Safe Haven refugee camp has made it to South Dakota and now holds six of the seven special survivors meant to lead the rebuilding of their country -but it can’t be done until they find a safe place to settle… and who can think of peace when there’s a huge camp of foreign invaders less than a day behind their group and they only want one thing? Safe Haven and everyone inside the light.
Watch the trailer for this series
