For several years now, I've kept my writing to myself. Yes, I've shared it with a few select readers, but it was really a private thing. Now that my book is coming out (eeeeeeeeeeeee!), many more people will have access to my words, my thoughts - my heart. Crazy thing, I tell you! And I couldn't be happier!
When people hear that I have a book coming out, they ask the big question, "What is it about?"
Well, I know the answer. But I always end up in a more complex description than they want to hear. It's super hard to talk about my book for some reason! I need to come up with some little quip. A lot of times, I say, "It's Christian science-fiction," and leave it at that. Doesn't do the job really. I started thinking about it this morning as I went to work out. What is my book about?
The overlying story doesn't have a whole lot to do with this particular novel. I'm talking about the cosmic battle between the Logia and the Strages. The Ghosts - consisting of supporters of the Logia and the Logia themselves, are duking it out with the Progressive Legacy, which has the Strages at its helm. Basically, a big war between the good guys and the bad guys.
So with that said, stripped down to the bare bones, Asylum is about a man in search of his wife who is in the clutches of the Legacy.
I could add more details. Lots more. I mean, hey...I wrote the book, right? But I'm finding that the one line is all people want.
It's about this guy named Chase. He's a Logia - a gifted follower of Prince Ternion, who is also known as the Ruler Prince and the former ruler of the Circeae System. Chase is a Ghost - a band of people who fight for freedom from the Progressive Legacy. His wife, Trista, ends up in the hands of the Legacy. Chase, on a mission to find her, is arrested and sentenced to an insane asylum. He riots and takes over the ship, only to find his wife onboard. But she's different and doesn't remember him. Lots more stuff happens - a grand escape, ships explode. It's pretty cool, I must say.
Yeah...I guess I'll have to work on this.
