Right now, I’m in Sharpsburg Maryland on the battlefield where Ben Myers and Dustin Keith first met. Their fates have crossed and the book is released! This has really been a labor of love and I’m reaping the fruits of that labor right now as I walk the ground where over 22,000 fell over a century and a half ago. It’s surreal and you’ll get to read/watch my recap of the trip sometime next week.
In the meantime, go onto Amazon and get your copy of The Soldier!
America – 1862
The nation has been torn apart by a war of secession, but not all southerners are alike and fight for their own causes. That’s what Dustin Keith, a werewolf recently liberated from his mentor’s guardianship, saw in Ben Myers, a Georgia farm boy serving in the Confederate Army. Only in the army so he could escape north and then find a way abroad, Dustin never expected to take part in the single bloodiest day in American history. At Antietam, Ben is fatally wounded and Dustin sees that the only way to save this good soul is to turn him into what he is – a werewolf.
With a wife and infant son at home, Ben wants nothing more than to see the end of this terrible war and go home to his own state. But now, freshly turned into a supernatural creature with unbelievable abilities, the long journey home from Virginia has become that much more difficult. If the enemy army, a strict mentor, and sheer distance wasn’t enough, there’s something off about Ben’s condition that will make it nearly impossible for him to enter society ever again.
