439 pages
In a hidden world of Gods and Monsters, can an ordinary man make a difference?

Kyle couldn’t be there to save his father. But as a homegrown vigilante, he stands a chance of saving the innocent, night by night, fight by fight. One thing he didn’t expect to encounter as he works to clean up the streets…Metahumans—people with real, honest to god fantastic powers.

Now he’s thrust into a secret war waged for more than a generation, a war that will uncover buried family secrets and challenge what he thinks it means to fight for the innocent. To save his family and countless others, Kyle will have to prove to everyone, including himself, that you don’t need bulletproof skin to be a hero.

About the Author:
Like so many, I grew up in a small town with big dreams. I’ve been an avid reader all my life, and I’ve always wanted to be a storyteller. And in the short time I’ve spent on this big, blue satellite, I’ve lived through enough to have some interesting stories to tell. From small towns to big cities, from working class Joe to the white-collar office, from combat veteran to arts major—I’ve been around.

I’ve always been the creative type—drawing, painting, filmmaking, playing music. I turn now to writing because, as I read the work of others, I keep saying to myself, I bet I could do that. And more often I find myself thinking, I bet I could do that better.

So this is me putting my money where my mouth is. This is my journey, meandering around the world of first-time authorship. Maybe as I figure things out, I can help you learn a thing or two as well.

Why “Introscriptive?”
Everything here is about writing. Some posts are aimed at helping fellow up-and-coming authors avoid some of the pitfalls I stepped in when I was new. Other posts are more self-reflecting, sort of an “author’s journal.”

I’ve never published a novel before. Maybe you haven’t, either. Maybe you’re daunted by the monumental task of turning out an 80,000-word manuscript. Maybe you’re eager to write and don’t know where to begin, or you’re going strong but worried about how to make the leap from first draft to published book. Or maybe you just want a few tips and tricks.

In any case, I’ve either been through it, or I’m about to go through it, as I wrap up my first novel. Every milestone my books make and every tidbit of useful information I glean can be found here, at Introscriptive.

So read on. Maybe you’ll learn somethin’.
