Top 10 Things To Know About Loss

Saturday, December 31st, 2011

LOSS will hit the shelves in less than three months. (Cue music!) I thought it would be fun to give you an idea of what to expect.

Top 10 Things To Know About LOSS

10. LOSS is about a boy named Billy Ballard, the most bullied kid in tenth grade.

9. LOSS is also about Pestilence, the White Rider, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

8. Some people refer to Pestilence as the Conqueror — and you get to find out why!

7. The cover depicts arrows and a crown, both of which are important to the White Rider.

6. You get to see more of Famine and War and all the steeds.

5. One of LOSS’s subplots focuses on coping when a loved one suffers from Alzheimer’s — and a portion of proceeds from the book will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Association.

4. There’s a hat-tip to Piers Anthony in LOSS. 🙂

3. LOSS is very different from both HUNGER and RAGE — and yes, you can read it as a standalone without having read the two earlier books.

2. LOSS is peppered with foreshadowing about BREATH, which I’m writing now. AND…

1. LOSS shows a a lot more of Death — including an entirely different side to the Pale Rider. 🙂


I’ll be making LOSS posters, as well as more HUNGER and RAGE posters. Everything should be available by February! 🙂

News about the Horsemen!

Saturday, June 5th, 2010

Publishers Marketplace has officially announced what I learned last week:

Italian rights to HUNGER and RAGE sold to Newton Compton in a four-book deal!

Yes, this means I’m working on books three and four of the Riders’ Quartet. Working on Book Three right now. The working title is LOSS, and this time, the Horseman is Pestilence.

Rock on!
