Please watch and share he following video for “Hollow”. Another creation from Reap the Light. This song deals with depression, PTSD, domestic violence, sadness, etc. If you take anything away from this, is that feelings of depression and the like are real and we validate that in here. We also try and let you know that there are people out there who can and will help. Just reach out. Enjoy and send to someone you know needs it.

Signed with Black rose writing publishers

I have just signed with Black Rose Writing Publishers! They are going to relaunch The Light Reapers: End of the World with full publishing, marketing and pre-launch events. They will be setting up book signings, podcast and radio interviews as well as author book festivals. To perform all the promotion activities, the publisher will be pushing the publication back to next year.

Bad News: This also pushes back the sequel. Sorry.

New Book being researched. Looking for writing partner.


I am reaching out from the US to inquire about a possible writing partner for a new project. It is a book about 1880’s London and I am looking for a female from the UK who could help me write this book. I need help with character development, UK idioms and culture. This book will be a new twist on the time during Jack the Ripper. This story isn’t about him, but there are some parallels. There are strong heroine characters in the story. The name of the book is The Whitechapel Retribution Society.

This project will be a 50/50 partnership concerning credits and financial compensation. I have self-published before and will do the same for this book if necessary. My goal, however, is to get a literary agent on board to champion this book.

If you would like to know more about the project, synopsis, book cover, direction, then please contact me via my email. All my links and information are below. I hope to find an enthusiastic writer ready to take this on with me. We will participate in some zoom meetings, messaging and email to accomplish this.

Hope to hear from you soon.

The new book: The Light Reapers: End of the World is now available. You can purchase either in Kindle edition or paperback. Audible edition will be available soon.

The Light Reapers are a Special Operations Unit who had served numerous campaigns together. They were an expertly trained and elite group, but could they ever prepare for what was to happen next. Under a shroud of darkness and maliciousness, a viral weapon was being produced by an alliance of terrorists bent on the destruction of their respective enemies. When double-crossed by an ISIS faction, the viral weapon is stolen and prematurely unleashed on the planet. Now facing a worldwide epidemic, The Light Reapers are deployed to rescue a scientist who may be able to develop an antidote. If that wasn’t difficult enough, they also must track down the ISIS faction and eliminate them. All while battling hordes of the infected.
