Received promotional copies of new book

Just received the promotional copies of the new book, being published by Black Rose Writing Publishing. Extremely stoked. You can pre-order almost anywhere: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books A Million, Target, etc.

New Video: Hollow Premiere

Please watch and share he following video for “Hollow”. Another creation from Reap the Light. This song deals with depression, PTSD, domestic violence, sadness, etc. If you take anything away from this, is that feelings of depression and the like are real and we validate that in here. We also try and let you know that there are people out there who can and will help. Just reach out. Enjoy and send to someone you know needs it.

Reap the Light: Fade to black lyric video complete

Reap the Light is a project to expose metal/hard rock to new generations while supporting important causes. By supporting this project, you’ll be supporting victims of Domestic Violence and PTSD as well as musicians and artists.

Here is our first original song: Fade to Black

Signed with Black rose writing publishers

I have just signed with Black Rose Writing Publishers! They are going to relaunch The Light Reapers: End of the World with full publishing, marketing and pre-launch events. They will be setting up book signings, podcast and radio interviews as well as author book festivals. To perform all the promotion activities, the publisher will be pushing the publication back to next year.

Bad News: This also pushes back the sequel. Sorry.

New Book being researched. Looking for writing partner.


I am reaching out from the US to inquire about a possible writing partner for a new project. It is a book about 1880’s London and I am looking for a female from the UK who could help me write this book. I need help with character development, UK idioms and culture. This book will be a new twist on the time during Jack the Ripper. This story isn’t about him, but there are some parallels. There are strong heroine characters in the story. The name of the book is The Whitechapel Retribution Society.

This project will be a 50/50 partnership concerning credits and financial compensation. I have self-published before and will do the same for this book if necessary. My goal, however, is to get a literary agent on board to champion this book.

If you would like to know more about the project, synopsis, book cover, direction, then please contact me via my email. All my links and information are below. I hope to find an enthusiastic writer ready to take this on with me. We will participate in some zoom meetings, messaging and email to accomplish this.

Hope to hear from you soon.
