Series: Legends Walk book 1

Publisher: The Wild Rose Press. 

Genre: YA/Urban Fantasy set in New Philadelphia

Pages: 312

     The apocalypse didn’t arrive with nuclear war or a plague of zombies, just a quiet virus that sterilized most everyone and put humanity's future in jeopardy. Fifty years later, seventeen-year-old Ed Johnson plies his musical talents in New Philadelphia, jumping at the chance to help launch a coworker’s band. But Quinn, their beautiful bassist, is inexplicably cold toward him, and other strange things are afoot.

     In spite of a growing unease, Ed shrugs off being stalked by a crazy, old Native American and a frightening crone. But when nightmare creatures threaten his sister, Ed discovers he is bound to the strangers.

     To get out of this mess, he must enlist the help of his friends and Quinn, who harbors her own dark secret. But there is little time for Ed to discover the true power of music and save them, himself, and perhaps the future of the human race.

The Author

Biography

Jim’s passion for tales that transport readers to extraordinary realms began under the covers reading until 3am each night, a towel stuffed beneath his door to avoid parental censure. After writing short stories in high school and college, and a brief, 29-year hiatus as an officer in the Navy, he has returned to his first passion. His writing spans speculative fiction, embraces protagonists with strong moral fiber, and advocates the underdog.

Meet the band.

Forty-five minutes later, Billy and his players joined me by the exit doors. A grin stretched my face. “Great set, Billy.” I nodded to the girl in the white tank top. “Truly epic opening.” She graced me with a wintry smile, the kind you see on cannibalistic snowmen. She seemed about to say something along the lines of “What’s […]

A little glimpse of Quinn

The girl could play. Quinn’s eyes were huge and dark, her nose narrow and petite.  There was probably a touch of Asian ancestry there. If she smiled, I was sure it would transform her face for the better. Still, she was gorgeous. The blouse she wore under the jacket had a hand-painted image on it. Part of a word, “YA,” peeked through […]

Ed gets carried away working on his music mix after hours.

Excerpt from Strange Tidings: Throbbing chords filled me, swirling and building. The short, fierce piece was a perfect finale to my mix of progressive rock, metal, and alternative. I left the genre-less hip-hop, stained with corporate agendas, moldering in the city ruins. This music was real, powerful. My hands flew, calling forth a blizzard of notes from the embattled instruments. […]

So this is a “Blog”

I’m excited to start reaching out to readers and the writing community. The coming months should see the establishment of my author pages on Goodreads, Amazon, and Facebook. I’m working to establish my internet presence while Strange Tidings works through editing, galley design, and cover art. …and I am of course working on the second […]
