Guest Post - Jason Halstead

Transcend - Go Beyond Range or Limits

The multi-talented Willsin Rowe is a peer and a friend. He's also the guy I go to for most of my cover art because his graphical talents and ability to put up with my demands can't be matched! So here's a special thank you to Willsin for tossing this up on his blog and helping a brother out. Hopefully I can return the favor down the road. Now enough of me telling you what a stand up mate Willsin is, you already know that if you're reading his blog. On to me telling you about what a great new book I just released!



Imagine fields filled with wheat and corn. Orchards full of trees laden with bananas, almonds, oranges, apples, and more. Ranches with tens of thousands of cattle. All of it raised and harvested in the oldest of human professions— farming for the sake of providing for the human race.

For a small group of kids on the terraformed planet of Venus, that's exactly what life is like. They were born there and they grew up there, knowing what it was to put in a hard day's work and feeling the satisfaction that comes from reaping the fruit of their labors at the end of the day. And for most of them, unfortunately, will die there.

A wind of change is blowing and it brought with it an army of soldiers and war machines. A revolution, long brewed in secrecy, is laying waste to humanity to set things right. Or as right as their leader, the newly elected President Ondalla, believes things should be.

For the kids investigating the strange noises in the forests of Venus, only death or capture awaits. Two of those kids, anxious to explore a life of their own in a budding relationship, are stripped apart and forced to live different lives. For them the only option is the futile act of resistance or accepting fate and turning their backs on what happened to their family and friends.

Following in the wake of some amazing dystopian science fiction like The Hunger Games and Divergent comes my latest series: Transcendent. Transcendent is set to fill in the holes and take the reader to a new future with new possibilities. Tragic romance, intrigue, action and adventure, and even some giant robots make for a coming of age story that cannot be denied.

It's available on Amazon and Smashwords right now, with more to come in the very near future. Get your copy before your friends start talking about it and leave you wondering what you're missing.
