I’ve been teasing this via my Facebook page for a while now. I think it’s time to finally let you in on the secret. And I do mean secret. Probably three people know about this project, until now. Considering I started 7 months ago, I’d say I’ve done a pretty good job of keeping it hush-hush.
Home: A Dystopian Journey
The wilderness shows no mercy.
On a journey to nowhere, an escape from the past, four travelers must confront the harsh realities of their chosen path. The terrain is treacherous; the supplies are low. But turning back isn’t an option. Only death is behind.
Someone is following.
Others have tried this route. Many have gone; none have returned. Their only salvation, their only hope, lies at the end. But the end of the journey is not what it seems. Nothing is.
This book began in November of 2018 when my grandpa died unexpectedly. This book continued in the spring of 2019, when I graduated high school. I put this book to paper over the months since then. First as a short-story idea, and then as a 20,000 word novella.
The last twelve months have been a time of searching. That’s the best way I know how to put it. Searching for answers. Searching for sanity. Searching for hope. And that search led me to places. Places I wanted to share with you. This book is my attempt at an explanation, in my own way, and was my coping mechanism for a while. It’s time to share it with all of you.
It’s not long. It’s only about 100 pages, and the books will be small, almost fit in your pocket. But I’d like to think it packs a punch. I guess you’ll have to find out for yourself.
