“THE SLEEPING ONE” Blog Tour
Karl has some interesting reading for you at each stop along his tour, so if you miss even one stop, you’ve missed a huge treat!
Carl Prescott never did have many friends, and after a chance meeting with Headmaster Dorchester, he may lose the only two friends he has left. With no other options, Carl, Grace, and Burt transfer to the Thorndike Academic Institution, one of only two schools on Earth that cater to the unusual abilities of their students. They learn that the oddities that made them outcasts at home are amazing skills vital to saving the world. If they can survive.
The second school is more interested in enslaving the world than saving it. Headmaster Greenleaf and Professor Thorndike VIII will do anything to keep the three friends from becoming what they must become.
Carl, Grace, Burt, and their new friend, Aida race through this nonstop action adventure. Every day, they discover more about the talents they possess, but time is short. If Carl fails, the school and everyone there is doomed. Let us hope he learns quickly and well.
From the author:
Carl, Burt, and Grace were outcasts at home and school. Only Grace had other friends, but that was okay with Carl Prescott. She was the only friend he needed. Now both she and Burt are being sent far away to the Bertrand Aloysius Thorndike Academic Institution due to their unusual abilities, so Carl goes along.
Soon they learn that those oddities are actually amazing talents. While exploring vacant wings of the Gratia Dei Dormitory, they find the truth of this ancient academy, and they are put on a very dangerous path that can save the world if they can overcome impossible odds.
Join the adventure, and follow the friends as they learn amazing truths that most refuse to see. Solving the riddle of The Sleeping One is only the beginning of this story.
With a long career in finance and as the author of almost twenty books, I like to say that words and numbers are my life.
I have had a lifelong fascination with stories in the science fiction and fantasy genres, whether it was the Tom Swift novels by Victor Appleton I read as a young boy, or television like Lost in Space and Star Trek. More recently, I have devoured film series like Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Lord of the Rings. That fascination is combined with a keen interest in cosmology, astrophysics, quantum physics, and spirituality.
That quirky combination along with the fantasy genre allows me to craft stories that reinforce the importance of family, friendship, and love. The protagonists must overcome incredible danger and challenges to survive their journeys, but eventually, end up on top. It goes without saying that as a finance guy, my life has been less action-packed than my characters (thank goodness).
With Carl Prescott and The Sleeping One, I ventured back to comfortable territory. Many of my stories reinforce our direct connection to the Divine. While that is an element of this story, the sequels feature that relationship to a much greater extent. That element in my stories is an homage to what I believe really matters in this life.
I am the son of an Air Force pilot and as such, I have lived in many places, never for more than four years at a time. Thankfully, as an adult, I have lived in Chula Vista, CA for the past thirty-seven years. I met and married Aida, the love of my life, thirty years ago. Our grown children have made us grandparents four times over. It is a blessing to be around such wonderful parents and children.
My new goal in life is my stories. I hope you can follow me on this new adventure.
