From November 11 though November 15 the kindle edition of THE BALANCE will be priced as “free” on AMAZON.
THE BALANCE is the first installment of a 3-part story set in The Land—the only surviving area of Earth after a global thermonuclear war. Prior to the destruction, almost 200 years before, two factions attempted to prepare for the war.
One faction, The Council of God, stored quantities of food and seeds. They wanted to leave behind modern technology, whic they blamed for the war and to form a faith-based culture.
The Order created living time capsules to protect the advancements that humans had achieved, along with scientists and educators, so that humans wouldn’t have to start all over again.
These two factions emerged after the destruction and were forced to create an agreement to co-exist—called The Balance—but eventually the Council drove the Order into exile.
Th story of The Balance begins in New Bright Sea Harbor, where Phoebe, a genetically engineered daughter of an important lost Order member, struggles to hide who she is. Abandoned by the Order, she lives with her adopted father, Daniel. She’s managed to reach the age of seventeen. The exiled members of the Order realize she’s still alive and they want to protect her before the Council discovers her existence. They see Phoebe as a potential path to re-establishing the agreement and returning to the Land.
The second part of the story, subtitled “The Wastelands and the Wilderness”, is planned for release in late 2017 or early 2018.
