New Series Coming Soon!

With Descendants Saga wrapping up very soon... I'm currently in the middle of novel #7 "VENDETTA" ... I'm ready to announce a brand new series. As I may have mentioned earlier on, fans of Descendants Saga will find they have more insight into what's going on, or at least how it is rooted in the Descendants Universe. However, this will also be a series that can stand alone for those who have never read Descendants :)


Jonathan Parks never expected to see the end of the world. He never expected to be the cause.

Calling all fans of the Descendants Saga! We now have a FREE PREVIEW of the first Descendants Saga audiobook. Just click the cover image to link to the Youtube preview!
The FALLEN AUDIOBOOK is scheduled to be completed mid-September and be released on Amazon, and ITunes.

Sunday, August 11, 2013


Well, there turned out to be a bit of drama surrounding the FALLEN AUDIOBOOK project over the past month. I had originally begun to work with a great sounding Narrator / Producer only to get part way into the recording process and lose all contact with him. To this day I have no idea what has happened to him. Literally, he was gung ho one moment - having completed the first segment - and then I couldn't contact him by email or ACX message board through Amazon. In fact, when I was forced to appeal to ACX/AMAZON to contact the narrator, they were unable to get a hold of him either. I'm wondering if he is even on the planet. You know, any number of things could happen to a person from one day to another... and since I'm in Tennessee and him in California there's just no way of knowing.
Anywho, FALLEN has been released from that contract and I've just completed the process again for finding a new Narrator. I feel even better with this choice and will hopefully have the first 15 minute section of the book by August 16th. If it's all right with the Narrator, I'll try to post that initial segment here on the website. The Narrator's natural accent is British, which I really think is cool, so I'm looking forward to hearing it come alive in Audio.
The company producing the FALLEN AUDIOBOOK has also expressed interest in doing the entire series... so, hopefully, that will all pan out as well.
In the meantime, I'm busy working on the fifth DESCENDANT'S SAGA novel, "AFTERMATH," which follows on the heels of MILLENNIUM. So stay tuned for updates on the release for both AFTERMATH & FALLEN AUDIOBOOK in the near future. If all goes according to schedule, the audiobook should become available in mid-September 2013.

I also have a new Sci-fi / Fantasy novel that's in the works entitled METALLUS: City of the Metal Gods... I'll be working on this behind the scenes as I continue work on the Descendants Saga Novels... but more on that one later :)

The Next Novel in the Descendants Saga is well on its way toward completion. I don't have a release date just yet, but I've made a title change and cover change that I wanted to share.
The novel will be a part of a new Descendants trilogy where Cole becomes the first person viewpoint character in the story. For fans, don't worry, Brody West is still a big part of this story. However, Brody had four novels under his viewpoint and I thought changing perspectives might be a nice change.

This story picks up at the very end of MILLENNIUM with the Descendants, under Brody's leadership, traveling to Ireland with the hope of making a new home there, after all of the trouble on the spiritual plane and back in England.
As the release nears, I'll post more updates...
Also, at this point, it's unclear what the fate of the FALLEN AUDIOBOOK is going to be. I had a producer / narrator out in California who had begun work, but something has apparently happened? Literally, I haven't been able to reach him in weeks and neither has Amazon/ACX the company we're both contracted through. Not sure if he's still on the planet or not? Again, I'll update you...but hopefully he's all right. As for the audiobook, if our contract is dissolved then I can simply put the novel up for other narrator / producers to take a look at on Amazon / ACX. So, we'll see how that pans out.

GHOST: A New Thriller from Wayne Thomas Batson

About the Story: Ghost fits into the genre of Supernatural Thriller, in the same vein as Jim Butcher's Dresden Files, the X-Files, Nightstalker, etc. But, it's also very much a Detective Thriller in the vein of "Lone Wolf" murder mysteries like Lee Child, Brad Thor, and Stephen Hunter.

"Fans of Lee Child and Jim Butcher will love this series!"

—The Underground

Want a sneak preview chapter of GHOST? Click HERE:

Protector and punisher…Hunter and hunted…Down-to-earth and otherworldly…John Spector, aka GHOST, isn’t your ordinary investigator. He carries a shiny badge, a billfold ID, and a mysterious silver suitcase. His mission? Seek the forgotten ones, the abandoned ones, the ones no one else can or will help. Visit blunt force trauma upon the world’s blackest souls and deny the devil his day by any means necessary. And never stop. Never.

For more than a decade, the "Smiling Jack" killer has been posting photos of his victims on the Web, daring anyone to catch him, daring anyone to care. But when no missing person files match and no victims are ever found, the FBI closes the case.

Years later, a digital camera washes up on shore, and GHOST finds it. Each macabre photo becomes a clue that will lead GHOST and FBI Special Agent Deanna Rezvani on the trail of one of the most diabolical killers of this world…or beyond.

"No one gets away with murder. Not for long."

Projects IN THE Works

At the moment a lot is happening!
Fallen Audiobook is in production: I've heard the first installment from Narrator / Producer, John LeBlanc, and it sounds fantastic! Even though I've written and read the book over and over by now, I was riveted hearing it in pristine audio.
Minor Edits are going on for all of the Descendant Saga story changes, just another round to clear up any misspelled words, etc...
I've got another project in the works also, but its under wraps for the time being.
And Diabolical, the first Descendants Saga Aftermath novel, is a WIP that's partially complete with much more to do...
So, a lot of items on my plate at the moment, but that's a good thing. Stay Tuned for updates on the FALLEN AUDIOBOOK, release date and where you can find it. I'm expecting great things for all of the Descendant Novels as they come alive in Audio Format.

I've got wonderful news. My first novel in the Descendant's Saga: FALLEN, will soon be brought to the market as an AUDIOBOOK on AUDIBLE.COM, AMAZON, and ITUNES!!
I had no idea this would be a real possibility for the series, but recently stumbled across Amazon's ACX website. This website works to place Producers of Audiobooks together with Authors.
After creating a five minute audition sample and placing it on the ACX system for review by Narrators and Producers, FALLEN received an audition that sounded awesome.

I've since been in contact with the Narrator/ Producer, John LeBlanc, and we now have a contract that puts us on track to hopefully complete FALLEN by the end of July 2013. In addition, Mr. LeBlanc has expressed his interest in continuing with the series to its completion. So, we might conceivably have all four Descendant's Saga novels in AUDIOBOOK form by the end of the year!

Stay tuned for further updates as they come in on the release of the Audiobooks and how to get them.

Just an update on the new series and first novel for Descendants fans. I figured it was a good time to give a bit of perspective on the direction of the new series. Descendants Saga Aftermath is, of course, linked with Book 4 (MILLENNIUM) from the original series. In fact, MILLENNIUM served as a transition between these two series, closing out events from the perspective of Brody West, our previous main character in order to take up the AFTERMATH TRILOGY from a new character's perspective. The novels will continue to focus upon one first person character as well as an omniscient point of view for everyone else.
Considering several characters I might have used for the main, first person p.o.v. I have decided to go with Cole as the lead character here. Don't fret, though, as our other characters, like Brody West, aren't cut out of the story by any means. We also have a new potential villain in MILLENNIUM's late entry, Adolf Hitler, and what may seem an odd direction at first. AFTERMATH will follow Cole's point of view as the Descendants move out into the human world, taking up in Ireland, and the problems they face.
For those of you who are familiar with the other four books, in the original quadrilogy, AFTERMATH will continue as an alternate history, blending fantasy with real persons, places and events. However, I have decided to twist the timeline a bit. I had thought to possibly play out our famous villain's development along the natural course history took throughout World War II and prior to it. Instead, I feel led to flesh out the possibilities of how things might have gone, if the allies didn't win?
Some might even wonder why I would utilize Hitler as a villain at all in the series, or make him out as one of the Descendants. However, I simply couldn't resist the possibilities. Could there be anyone in human history as compelling a villain as Adolf Hitler? Has there been anyone who fit the antichrist mold so much? Remember that this man came close to conquering the civilized world in under a decade of recent history. How could that happen? What spiritual forces might have been at work in order to bring it about? After all, the Bible clearly states, 2 Thess 2, that "the mystery of iniquity is already at work," attempting to bring about the rule of Antichrist in the world.
Descendants Saga saw Grayson Stone as one failed attempt. AFTERMATH will flesh out another we're all familiar with...yet heading into uncharted waters for the fun of it. I hope you've enjoyed Descendants Saga up to this point, and that you will all hang on as the ride continues!
As always STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES and if you've enjoyed the Descendant novels then please go back to and post reviews for all the books you've read. Every good review helps!

The time has come to finally finish my first Descendants Saga Quadrilogy! Descendants Saga Book Four: MILLENNIUM will be officially released on Amazon Kindle on Monday, April 8th 2013!!

I'm thrilled to have finished my first four book series, but that is not all. This world and its characters have been so epic and fun to write that I'm announcing a new Descendants series!


I'm going to be doing a lot of historical research on this series, and you'll soon see why when you read who the new main villain is going to be in MILLENNIUM! I'm hoping to get right to work on this series and have a completed first novel by the end of Summer 2013... as always, updates on release dates will be forthcoming on this site, so stay tuned. In the meantime, I'm sharing the first Aftermath Trilogy cover today.


Don't forget, Descendants Fans, to post reviews for all of the novels when you finish them. Every good review helps tremendously! As always, thanks so much for your interest in my work!

Hey everyone! Guess what? I've a got a FREE NOVEL OFFER for you. Many of you have taken a recent interest in my DESCENDANTS SAGA, and the fourth novel: MILLENNIUM is almost finished. I expect MILLENNIUM to be released in April...updates on its release and a special announcement on the next trilogy will be coming soon.
However, my previous series: THE SERPENT KINGS is one I think my Descendants fans would really enjoy. Lots of action, a unique world and characters that were very fun to write. I'm now offering THE SERPENT KINGS SAGA in two editions.
  • First Novel: THE SERPENT KINGS is now offered for FREE! on Amazon Kindle
  • Second Novel: THE WRAITH DANCER contains parts 2 & 3 of the series and is offered at the low price of $3.99 on Amazon Kindle...of course, Prime Members get to borrow this one FREE also as part of their membership benefits.
So, just a recommendation, particularly if you've enjoyed THE REALM SHIFT TRILOGY or DESCENDANTS SAGA... it now costs you nothing to get THE SERPENT KINGS first novel!
Hope you enjoy it... and, as always, please leave reviews for the books you enjoy, even the sequels! Every good review really helps to spread the word. Thanks again for your interest. Stay tuned for the release of MILLENNIUM in early April 2013 and the special Descendants Saga announcement.

Hello, Descendants Saga fans... I'm busy, busy, busy thinking of new stuff to write...if you've been following the series, then you are hopefully looking forward to the final fourth installment in the series. I had originally given myself until Summer to release "MILLENNIUM," however, I'm now expecting to release the novel in April (stay tuned to my blog/amazon blog and author page for updates on this).


I'm generally the kind who likes to get a series done and move on, but this world of the Descendants has proven to be so big and fun to write that I think I've got more to explore in it. I've been toying with the idea of another series and have now decided to go ahead with this new trilogy--I'll announce it when Millennium releases, hopefully in April.

By the way, anyone who has enjoyed Descendants may also enjoy the SERPENT KINGS SAGA as well, or REALM SHIFT TRILOGY... I've got the first Realm Shift out for FREE, and hope to soon have a new SERPENT KINGS out FREE also...right now its .99cents on Amazon Kindle.

Rather than going back to any other series, I'm going to keep writing on this track until the new trilogy is complete. These Descendant novels have been coming fast and furious as far as ideas go, so I'm confident that I'll be able to go through without any lag.

I've still got "A World Within" sequel in the works, but it will still be 2014 before I can manage to get back to it. Thanks for your interest and patience.

Again, anyone who is following Descendants, please review each new edition if you get the opportunity. Your reviews are awesome and very much appreciated and they help others to get involved with the series. Thanks again and Stay tuned for more updates!

Hey guys, my new 3rd novel in the Descendants Saga, "REVENANT," is now officially available on in Kindle format!

For those of you who may have picked up a free copy of FALLEN on Nook or another e-reader, I'm sorry, but only the free novels get distributed around in other formats besides Kindle. The sequels are only available on Kindle because of the KDP Amazon program. They must remain exclusive to Amazon for that reason...however, Kindle apps are free for reading on tablets, PC's, and iphone/android. I use these apps myself for kindle reading and I know they are very good. So, if you want to pick up a free kindle app from Amazon's site then you should have no problem getting the sequels.

Thanks so much for everyone's interest in this series! I'm currently working on the 4th novel "MILLENNIUM," which should be out in a few months, at the latest by the Summer at some time. Stay tuned here for all updates, as usual, and please go back to AMAZON TO POST REVIEWS, if you enjoyed any of my novels! Every good review helps tremendously!

Descendant Saga Updates...

"DESCENDANT," the second novel in the Descendants Saga was released on December 26th 2012... the follow up novel, and third in the series "REVENANT," is already well on its way to an early completion and release ahead of my previous schedule. Sometimes the ideas come quickly and sometimes they don' of today...


In addition to this news, I have been toying with the possibility of whether or not to follow REVENANT with a fourth novel to the Descendants Saga. Usually, my ideas are exhausted after three novels in a series, but I have a good direction to take the story, so I'm going for it. My hope is to stay on the original schedule and have the fourth novel, "MILLENNIUM," out by the end of Summer 2013 (my original estimate for REVENANT) 

As for the follow up to "A World Within," I am still planning on an early 2014 release for this sequel, so stay tuned...

Here is a preview of the cover for the fourth novel in the Descendants Saga: MILLENNIUM
