nick-banner-1

On the eve of his fifteenth birthday, Nick Banner is thrust into a world where supernatural forces are fighting an ancient war. As if school and shuffling through foster homes weren’t enough, young Banner becomes the target of an evil corporation that thinks Nick is the key to unearthing a powerful artifact from the time of Moses.

Nick Banner thinks he’s just a below-average foster kid. His father went missing when he was six—no one really knows what happened. Jaded by his past, Nick has grown up feeling worthless, but one soul has been tethered to him since he was a child—Gabe Reed. Together, they uncover a dark mystery and begin digging for the truth.

Six Steps to Publishing

Blogging

#1 Start Building Your Platform

Getting a book published has always been a challenge, but perhaps even more so over the last decade. Publishers assume a lot of risk when signing new authors. Therefore, they are interested in knowing how broad and extensive your platform happens to be.

Writing

#2 Write a Book Worth Reading

Every published author has a story about how they came up with the big idea for their book. Learn from them and look for ways to enter into your own personal creative zone. Be diligent and disciplined when it comes to writing. And most importantly, don't run away from feedback.

Editing Manuscript

#3 Yes! Hire a Skilled Editor

Here's the biggest secret in the publishing industry. Even the bestselling authors have hired editors. In fact, they have teams of people who help them prepare their books for publication. However good you are with your writing skills, you need a second set of eyeballs on your manuscript.

Publishing Agents

#4 Sign with an Agent

Agents are the gatekeepers in the publishing industry. After you write your first book, you'll soon discover that publishers don't want to read it unless your work is recommended by a literary agent. Some agents already have so many clients that they will not receive an unsolicited manuscript.

Publishers

#5 Choose the Best Publisher

Publishers, like ourselves, come in many different shapes and sizes. Some will only consider publishing well-known successful authors, while others are looking for rising stars and voices in the wilderness. If your calling is writing, remember that every author was once unpublished.

Launching a new book

#6 Prepare for Launch

First time authors are usually surprised that it's easier to write a book than it is to prepare for publication and the subsequent marketing campaign. This is the season where you spend every waking hour growing your platform and communicating with your network of adoring fans.
