Today is a very exciting day indeed. I’ve been a little bit quite on social media and on Youtube regarding my writing projects, but that’s only because I’ve been working so hard to get this new project out to you. And today, I have some exciting news.
As you’re all aware, I’ve been working on this new book within The Aluria Adventures series, Disciple. A couple of months ago, I completed the project and I’ve since been working on the editing, the cover design and getting it ready for print.
I’m so excited to announce that Disciple will be available to everyone across the world on August 4, 2018. I’ve had a blast working on this novel, and I can’t wait for you all to read it. In fact, it’s one of my favorites, and probably competes with Vigilante.
In addition to Disciple, there’s another book that I’ll be releasing on August 4: The Aluria Adventures (3-Book Collection), which includes the first three books in the series, Aluria, Vigilante and Disciple. I’m also very excited about releasing this new book, and I have to thank eBookLaunch for providing me with this amazing cover to go with this special collection.
As you’re aware, there have been a couple of things that have happened in my life that have sort of postponed the release of Disciple and The Aluria Adventures collection. On November 20, 2017, my great-aunt, fellow author and friend, Eva McCall, passed away, and her death has left a great void in my life and immediately upon her passing, I wanted to do something that would allow her name and her legacy to live after her life.
One of the things that I thought of doing was creating a scholarship in her name, so that aspiring authors and poets and anything related to writing, could receive a scholarship at Southwestern Community College to pursue their educational dreams and either use that money to pursue their writing career or to be able to continue it as a hobby.
In order for this scholarship to be endowed, I need to raise $15,000. I’m happy to announce that as of right now, we have raised $12,000. I am so grateful to the family, friends and community members that Eva loved so much that contributed to the scholarship.
We still have a lot more work to do, and to ensure that this scholarship gets endowed by the end of the year, all digital presales for Disciple and The Aluria Adventures Collection, 50% of those proceeds will to The Eva McCall Memorial Scholarship. In addition, I’m also giving 50% of all proceeds for digital and physical sales for The One, Aluria and Vigilante to the scholarship. I can’t think of a better charitable cause to donate the proceeds of my books to. I’m sure that together, we can raise enough money to get this scholarship endowed before Disciple and The Aluria Adventures Collection is released on August 4.
If you’re not interested in ordering any of my books, that’s okay, but I still encourage you to donate to The Eva McCall Memorial Scholarship. You can donate directly to the SCC Foundation here (put The Eva McCall Memorial Scholarship in the memo):
In the coming days and weeks, I’ll be releasing additional videos to get you all pumped for the release of Disciple and The Aluria Adventures Collection. So if you will, please subscribe to my videos. I’ll be doing multiple book signings in the western North Carolina area, to accompany the release and I’ll also be donating proceeds from those events to The Eva McCall Memorial Scholarship.
I am so excited about this new journey that we’re about to embark upon together. Disciple is one of my favorite books that I’ve written so far, and I can’t wait for you to read it. In the meantime, please share this blog post, as well as all my social media posts, so we can get The Eva McCall Memorial Scholarship endowed before August 4.
Looking forward to talking with you all soon!
