Working Title: The Bobbit Rock
This Book Is In Development
Still reeling from the death of his beloved wife, homicide detective Isaac Murphy must investigate a growing string of unsolved murders in a cursed city. When mass hysteria plagues the city, Isaac begins to lose his sanity and questions whether the killer is a man or a monster.
In this excerpt from my upcoming horror novel "The Bobbit Rock." We are introduced to our protagonist Isaac Murphy. Locked in an insane asylum, we try to piece together the clues as to what happened to Isaac to put him in this situation. The only answer that Isaac has for us is the words "Wretched Man." The Wretched Man is the monster on your shoulders and the Devil in your mind. He latches onto you and you can't shake him no matter what you do. Be afraid, because it doesn't look like anything can stop this vile spirit. Option to Pre-Order the book coming soon!
A teenage boy in the mountains of North Carolina desires to get out of the "cycle" of a dysfunctional home and school life. Finally successful in breaking free, he quickly discovers that destiny has a plan for him and greatness is an understatement. An ancient legend passed down through a Native American tribe tells of one who will emerge as a great leader and even a "savior," just in time before the world faces a major cataclysmic event. Taught to shoot a bow and arrow, the boy demonstrates incredible skill during his first lesson. Could he be the Tamechactee? Meanwhile, a sinister being over in Normandy, France known only as "The Maker" has a plan to set off nuclear bombs throughout the world, not to kill everyone but to bring humans into submission. What is the real purpose, and can anyone save humanity from this demonic fiend?
In an effort to secure more information on The Maker's Army, Marcus makes the dangerous call to conduct a night raid deep in enemy territory. With a small squad, Marcus leads the stealthy assault in the dark of night...
Despite all the terror and fear of the post apocalyptic world, Marcus and Valerie still find time to have some fun with dance. Marcus is a bit of a klutz when it comes to dancing, and Valerie gets a real kick out of the lessons. Today the lesson is on ballet.
Shortly after assembling the Freedom Army, Marcus and company are on their way to Atlanta to recruit more soldiers. They are yet to face a Daemon and don't know what to expect from the powerful foes. Marcus, Colton, Valerie and Colton's Grandfather are riding in a car when a Daemon strikes out of nowhere...
Meet Colton Tubbman, a member of the The Malchactean tribe and Marcus' best friend. As the secondary protagonist of the series, Colton has a massive impact on the story. He and Marcus are inseparable and their antics are sure to make you laugh. Colton is courageous, loyal and quite good with the ladies, much to Marcus' chagrin.
Meet Sea Captain Ben Bailey. Soon he will become one of the greatest leaders in the Freedom Army, and one of Marcus' closest friends. However, the first time Marcus meets him, the impression isn't great. Ben is enjoying the apocalypse by indulging in the "finer" things in life. Of all the characters in Tamechactee, Ben is the wildcard. You never know what stunt he's going to pull or what antics he'll get up to. He is one of my favorite characters.
Meet Matthew Rivers. Ex-Army Ranger, full blooded Cherokee, and a cunning warrior. Matthew serves as one of the chiefs of the Freedom Army and also as a mentor to Marcus. He's all heart, but won't hesitate to put you on the ground if you deserve it. In this early excerpt, Matthew instructs a clueless Marcus on the basics of hand-to-hand combat with a Daemon. With Matthew being 6-3 and over 220, lanky Marcus has his work cut out for him.
One of the main characters in the story is Valerie Hutchinson, a young crack-shot from Asheville, North Carolina. Beautiful, witty and with a ton of badassery to boot, she is a key player in the war. In this scene, told from her perspective, Valerie eliminates an enemy Daemon as friendly fortifications are overtaken by the horde.
Meet "The Maker." The defacto ruler of the Daemon Army and villainous mastermind of the apocalypse. This scene is part of his introduction in which he ties up loose ends before beginning his plan to extinguish all of Humanity. He has hired a nameless government executive, code-named "Follower," to put the finishing touches on his plan. The raw power of The Maker is something no one can truly comprehend, not even the Tamechactee.
Marcus, The Tamechactee, is the last man standing after a brutal fight against The Maker's forces. All seems lost as Marcus faces Micah, one of The Maker's right hand men. Micah has perfected the horrifying feat of creating "Demon Flame." A diabolical flame that will ensnare a victim's soul. How can Marcus possibly hope to beat this sinister foe?
Early in the book, Marcus has a vision of his future self as the fully realized Tamechactee. In the vision, the Tamechactee delivers a mighty speech to his army, just before they face the full onslaught of The Maker's horde...
Hello readers! This is my very first post with Bublish about my first novel "Tamechactee - Arrow Soul." I'm very excited to be showing fun scenes from my book to potential readers! This scene is the first moment that our protagonist, Marcus Riehl, shows that there may be more to him than meets the eye. He has never shot a bow and arrow and now on his very first try, he hits bull's eyes one after another. Could this be the start of something amazing?
In this sequel to Tamechactee - Arrow Soul, the world as we know it has been transformed by a sinister being known only as The Maker, and it is up to the Freedom Army under the direction of Marcus Riehl to save Humanity from imminent destruction. The Maker has done everything possible to weaken his enemy, including trying to turn Marcus, the Tamechactee, against his own people. Set in various parts of France including the central valley, the southeastern region near the foot of the Alps, and Normandy, Tamechactee - Battle for Humanity tells the story of the Humans' and their allies the Lycans' struggle for survival in the face of nearly unimaginable odds. Can they form a further alliance with another species of evolved Humans in order to overcome the seemingly invincible Maker? Meanwhile, Marcus Riehl's relationship with his friends, including Valerie, Colton, Nate, Ben and Daniel is tested repeatedly now that the Maker has had his way. The profound strength of love and friendship along with the basic goodness of true Humanity is explored and displayed in this highly inspirational story of the fight to redeem that which is evil and free souls to reveal their true destiny.
In this spoiler free excerpt from the sequel, Tamechactee: Battle for Humanity, we experience a worst case scenario moment in a huge battle. From the perspective of Colton Tubbman, the Daemons have overrun his position. Hundreds if not thousands are decimating everyone. The army has resorted to "Danger Close" tactics in an effort to stop the crushing onslaught. As mortars explode all around him, a trapped and helpless Colton watches as The Tamechactee engages the overwhelming enemy by himself.
