Splashdown News: May 2011

Kia ora and welcome to May! Can you believe how fast this year has gone already? This month brings us more exciting developments...
  • Reality's Ascent by R.L. Copple, out now - Release Party!
  • Winter by Keven Newsome - Mega Sneak Peek
  • The Crystal Portal by Travis Perry & Mike Lynch: The Book Trailer


Reality's Ascent by R.L. Copple - The Reality Chronicles, Book Two

In the soul of each person lies a reality clamoring to break free...

When the demon Beltrid demands that Sisko use his supernatural ring for evil, Sisko's refusal turns his world upside down. Trapping Sisko's wife, Gabrielle, inside the "Crystal of Virtues," Beltrid sends Sisko and his two teenage children, Nathan and Kaylee, on a journey to find seven virtues that will free her. Simple? Not when a demon is involved.

...Reality has ascended, and no soul will remain untouched.

Winter by Keven Newsome - Coming June 1 from Splashdown Darkwater

Winter Maessen didn't ask for the gift of prophecy. She's happy being a freak - but now everyone thinks she's crazy. Or evil.
Goths aren't all the same, you know. Some are Christians.
...Christians to whom God sends visions.
Students at her university are being attacked, and Winter knows there's more than flesh and blood at work.
Her gift means she's the only one who can stop it - but at what price?

Have you seen Keven's epic book trailer yet? If not, you're missing a major event in videography!

Read the Sample! Just this weekend we've launched the sneak peek sample of Winter, an unprecedented 10 whole chapters! We don't normally do such a huge sample, but Keven wanted to make this long excerpt available to you totally free. It begins like this:

The stairs wandered to the right—old wooden stairs. With the first step they groaned, and she hesitated. Small candles sat on the steps, spread out—only one every four or five steps. They oozed lifeless blood that pooled at their base and coagulated into white scabs. She broke a candle free and continued her ascent, tilting it so it bled on the steps.

And Yeshua said, "His ears will be a sign to you."
A time-travelling warrior elf on a manhunt for an evil genius. A state-of-the-art robot from New Los Angeles. And a carpenter's son from first-century Israel. Entering the Portal, they join forces with a princess of the Sapphire Monarchy to defy their power-mad adversary.
