The Confessions of Jonathan Flite: FREE 50-Page Preview!

The Confessions of Jonathan Flite: FREE 50-Page Preview!

I’m thrilled to share with you the first preview of my upcoming novel, The Confessions of Jonathan Flite! It’s the first in an explosive new YA/Adult crossover series that deals with the global clash—and eventual meeting—of science and spirituality. The story, set against a nuclear terrorist attack in Geneva, Switzerland, follows a Rhode Island juvenile delinquent named Jonathan Flite, who is born in 2020 with memories of seven teenagers who vanished mysteriously halfway across the country, ten years before his birth.

I’ve been working on this series for over a decade, and I’m thrilled to release this first preview exclusively on my website. Keep an eye out for the full book, coming summer of 2014!

Last Wednesday, I got an email from David Artavia of The Advocate. I had been in touch with the magazine’s editor in chief last year regarding my novel The Breeders and possibly writing something for them, but I thought I had stupidly burned a bridge by letting my slew of 2012 life curveballs temporarily derail that effort. Mr. Artavia, however, was emailing to give me and a number of other authors a preview of the June/July magazine section we had been a part of.

WaitWHAT? I thought.

I clicked on the link David had included and was thrilled to see that The Advocate’s Clea Kim and Diane Anderson-Minshall had been kind enough to feature The Breeders on a new list titled “20 Must-Read Books We Missed Last Year.”

Crazy!

I’m incredibly humbled to be on the list, and I’m so appreciative of everyone at The Advocate who took the time to read my book and deem it worthy of such an honor! Without further ado, here is the link to their feature. Be sure to check out all the other great books, too!

It All Ends

It All Ends

I just spent the last hour trying to write a post about Harry Potter, chronicling my experience over the past ten years and sharing just why oh why it was so special to me. But the post didn’t work. It fell flat. It was so utterly personal that there was no possible way I could fit in all the details and make it matter to anyone else—not by a long shot. Upon munching on my chicken breast, peppers, and zucchini (cooked, raw, and raw—and actually sort of enjoyable together), I realized something special:

My Harry Potter experience was my own.

Anyone who has read the books and experienced the movies in tandem over the past decade can say the same thing. The story meant different things to different people—sometimes in ways that were life changing, other times in ways that were nothing more than afterthoughts. But one thing is certain:

This story did change the world, and we were lucky to be around when it did.

Not only did it speak to the hearts of millions of people from all different walks of life, but it also became a pillar of unity on a planet so often torn apart by difference. Perhaps even more important is that it tackled this key human dilemma head on and gave us heroes who stood up for what was right, just, and true.

Harry Potter was powerful enough to inspire human-to-human conversations in crowded airport security queues, bring strangers together for insane midnight book release parties, and inspire collective cheers from fans around the world who watched it together on the big screen—either literally or in spirit. It helped countless people feel like—and be—part of something truly magical.

To J.K. Rowling and all the agents, editors, lawyers, marketers, film producers, Warner Brothers executives, directors, cinematographers, set designers, actors, film editors, sound editors, sound designers, composers, and everyone else in between:

THANK YOU.
