First Glimpse: The Red: Trials

May 4th, 2014


Cover: The Red: Trials

Back-cover copy:
Lieutenant James Shelley and his squad of US Army soldiers were on a quest for justice when they carried out the unauthorized mission known as First Light. They returned home to America to face a court-martial, determined to expose the corruption in the chain of command that compelled their actions. But in a country still reeling from the nuclear terrorism of Coma Day, the courtroom is only one battlefield. A new cycle of violence ignites when rumors of the elusive, rogue AI known as the Red go public—and Shelley is, once again, pulled into the fray.

Challenged by his enemies, driven by ideals, Shelley feels compelled to act—but are the harrowing choices he makes really his own, or are they made for him, by the Red? With millions of lives at stake in a game of nuclear cat-and-mouse, does it even matter?

    I love the cover image, really looks like he’s dropping off the Earth. Will we be able to pre-order anytime soon?

    Thanks James! Eye-catching colors, aren’t they?

    Unfortunately, there’s no mechanism to do preorders. That’s something reserved for traditional publishers. That’s the big reason I’m trying to get people to sign up for the newsletter — it’s the easiest way for me to say “Now it’s out!” 🙂
