Book Description:

Netex, an advanced research firm with more than one secret agenda, has developed a mind-altering headset technology which now poses a threat to all of humanity. The headset uses a mysterious sound wave called “Auditum” that can control the brain and even hurls users into a different dimension.

Staff scientist Jacob Cross has been deeply involved in developing this new headset and was lead to believe the technology would serve various medical applications. Now terrified that his invention will be used to enslave millions, Jacob sends himself through the dimensional portal. There, Jacob falls in love with the powerful yet ghostly Tamara, who warns him that the fate of both their worlds are now linked by a shared peril. Tamara’s world has fallen prey to a monstrous adversary who now threatens to destroy Jacob’s world as well.

Jacob awakens, only to find his real life turned upside down as he is caught in a murderous plot created by the CEO of Netex. His loyalties are quickly torn between the two linked dimensions, causing Jacob to question his own sanity and even his ability to know what is real—and what is not.

Seventh Journey Book 1 – Official Website Goes Live

Seventh Journey Book 1 now has it’s own Official Website.  The Seventh Journey B1 website went live about 2 weeks ago, in preparation for the May 19th Book signing.  The website will be the primary host for any Seventh Journey related articles.  This will free up for articles more specific to “Enlightenment” topics, and other personal growth related articles.

This Seventh Journey site is where I will be posting any news specific to Seventh Journey Book 1, upcoming book signing events, or news coverage.  I may refer users to the Seventh Journey site, but I expect to do much of my promotions through Seventh Journey.

Further news coverage is scheduled for this summer in the form of radio, TV coverage, and book signings.  I will be released in a magazine in the next month or so, but I’ll provide updates around that as well.  The timing of things is fairly slow as I’ve discovered, since most of the media outlets have to actually read the book (surprise?), and I’m in queue before other books are reviewed.  For example, two weeks ago I was scheduled for an interview for July… so that just shows that the entire process really does require a great deal of patience!  When most reviews and interviews are scheduled for 3 months out upon contacting the news outlet, then it becomes obvious that patience is necessary.  I also have to keep in mind that the book only was actually published in January 2012, so in reality not much time has passed since my book was released, but it just seems longer for me since I’ve been working on this for quite awhile!

The entire process is extremely exciting, and I’m simply amazed and thankful at the amount of progress so far.  There is still a great deal to do yet, as interviews are scheduled, there is still the matter of arranging further book signings with Indigo’s corporate office.  My publisher is arranging those talks for me on my behalf, so much of my part revolves around… waiting.  But the entire process of getting to this point began when I was 24… I’m now 31… and although I’m ripe with anticipation, I am learning patience.

As all the media coverage rolls along, I turn my attention towards finishing Seventh Journey Book 2.  I expect to have this book completed by December of this year, and edited and published by Summer.  My plan is to release a book per year, to keep my fans into the material, and also because I believe it’s a great cadence for myself.  I am a firm believer that if you work on your project a little bit each day, you will find that over time you’ve moved mountains.  I sometimes get that feeling these days, but there are still many other mountains to overcome.  Thank you for reading, please watch for further updates on the Seventh Journey website.
