Tour Kick Off - Fires of Man by @ReadDanLevinson

Science Fiction

Date Published: June 17, 2014

In a world where a gifted few can manipulate reality with their minds, two great nations—Calchis and Orion—employ these psionic powers in a covert war for global superiority.

In the heart of Calchis, a powerful young psion named Aaron Waverly is kidnapped, and forcibly conscripted. To the north, in the capital, a plan is hatched to decimate Orion, to be carried out by the ruthless operative known only as “Agent.”

In Orion, fresh recruit Stockton Finn comes to terms with his incredible new powers, and learns firsthand how dangerous they can be. Meanwhile, officers Nyne Allen and Kay Barrett navigate the aftermath of their shattered love affair, oblivious to the fact that Calchis draws ever closer to destroying the tenuous peace.

Finally, in the arctic land of Zenith, Calchan archaeologist Faith Santia unearths a millennia-old ruin. This lost temple might just hold the hidden history of psionic powers, as well as hints of a deeper mystery . . . that could shake the foundations of all mankind.

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?

Absolutely. It’s what I’ve always wanted to do.

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?

Maintaining consistency. Making sure I’m in the habit of producing pages every day, every week, and sticking to it.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?

A few people, actually. Enormous thanks go to Jake Krueger, Linda Roberts, and, more recently, Tom Jenks.

#4 – What is next for your writing?

I’m working on revisions of book 2 in the Psionic Earth series, as well as the first draft of book 3. Additionally, I’m planning a dark fantasy series, with a friend of mine helping me build the world, history, and overarching story. The first book is tentatively titled A Persistence of Night.

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?

I do! Right now I’m reading Nexus by Ramez Naam. My to-read list is enormous at the moment, including Stephen King’s The Stand, Guillermo Del Toro’s The Strain, and Confessions of the Very First Zombie Slayer by my fellow Jolly Fish Press author F.J.R. Titchenell.

DESCRIBE Your Book in 1 Tweet: In a world where a few can manipulate energy with their minds, two nations wage a covert war for dominance. X-Men meets Full Metal Jacket.
