The Chosen: Rebirthing Part 1 Now Available!


This is it folks. Ten years of work, planning, rewrites, job losses, moving, and even a tragic death. It’s all built up to this. It’s still surreal that I’m even holding this book that I’ve worked so long on. To be honest it brings tears to my eyes, not just because it’s finally done, but because my best friend, my brother, couldn’t be here to share this moment with me. I was telling my girlfriend the other night that Mark and I had agreed we’d go out and get tattoos together when we finally got this thing published to commemorate the occasion. As soon as I have the money (being poor sucks) I plan on keeping my promise. Anyway, now it’s up to you. The ball is in your court. It’s your turn to experience this thing that has been such a significant part of our lives over the last decade and tell us whether or not we succeeded. I hope that you’ll enjoy it. I hope that you’ll want to see more of these characters and hear more of their story.  If you do,  please spread the word, tell your friends, post on Facebook, buy copies for Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers. Word of mouth is how this thing is going to get around, and I cannot express to you just how important it is to me that people get to experience just how incredibly talented Mark was. The digital version is now available for Kindle for $2.99. The paperback is available for $9.99. Both versions come with a bonus short story: Requiem. Please, pick up a copy and be sure to let us know what you think.

Description: There has been a war raging between Heaven and Hell for the fate of all creation, and the forces of Heaven are losing ground. The Enemy has discovered something that may tip the balance of the war in their favor, and now it’s up to Jude, the absentee leader of the warrior-priesthood known as the Chosen, and his new trainee Paul, to rally the disjointed forces of Heaven on Earth and find the source of this new threat. If they fail, it will mean that the forces of Hell will be free to run rampant across the Earth, ultimately leading to Armageddon and the end of all things. In the war between Heaven and Hell heroes are not made… they’re Chosen.

    Mark and I were best friends in High School, I will be buying the book tomorrow in both forms if possible, and getting as many people that I can to pick up a copy. Thank you so much for finishing this.

    Thanks Josh. Seeing your comment made my day. I really needed that. I’ve been emotional for the past couple of days as we finished everything up. I just really wish he could have seen this. This first book has so much of him in it, and he was just so freaking talented, it still blows me away when I read sections that he wrote.

      It’s honestly surreal to me to be able to have a piece if Mark come to life in this way. I don’t think we’ll ever “get over it” and I don’t want to, but I’m so grateful that you got this work done, and I am looking forward to waking up tomorrow, buying the kindle version, and heading to B&N and ordering it, (unless there’s a way they kicks more your way…then please tell me.) I’m just super excited to read it.

        Yeah, I know what you mean. It means the world to me that we’re finally getting this out there.
        You can only buy the paperback through Amazon right now because that’s who we went through to publish it. It’s not listed on the site yet so you have to order it through our e-store here:
