The After Eden Series
by Austin Dragon (Well-Tailored Books Publishing)
“After Eden, Thy Kingdom Fall. All Kingdoms Fall, New Kingdoms Rise.”
In the year 2088, the 21st century nears its end. “Wonderful” Tek World with its looming glass and steel towers, artificial-intelligent controlled cars and roadways, and Net-enhanced residents—all under the watchful eyes of the Grid.
World War III. It was inevitably going to be one of religion, this great, grim, evil war of humans, machines, and other things in the shadows that have never existed before. Unfortunately, neither the cause nor the outcome was within our perception, though the former should have been. No one could ever have imagined that it would not just be the third of the world wars, as that is unremarkable, but the explosion of the first global war of the Technological Age, the Tek Age—a hell we had never seen before.
The first two books in this science-fiction, thriller series, Thy Kingdom Fall and Stars & Scorpions, were released last year in 2013, and the third book, Rising Leviathan, will be released on May 4, 2014. This year, we will complete the next three books in the series and you can be a part of it! We believe the After Eden series is an amazing story, to be told over seven books in total. We’re going to complete the sci-fi, thriller series and by finding supporters like you, make our crowdfunding campaign a tremendous success.
We've launched this pre-crowdfunding campaign to build our "crowd" of supporters. With two, soon to be three, novels in stores today, our campaign will help us run a first-rate marketing and publicity campaign, to dramatically build our reader and fan-base, and complete the entire series.
The campaign will also lay the foundation for our long term and even bigger plans.
Both the publishing and film industries are dramatically changing. Robert Rodriguez launches the El Rey Network in a deal with Univision; Netflix is once again an innovator with its American political drama television series, House of Cards, which earned the first Primetime Emmy Award nominations for original online-only web television and received nine of Netflix's fourteen total nominations; and long-time comic book, The Walking Dead, becomes an American post-apocalyptic drama television series becoming a break-out hit.
Everyone in movie and television is looking for content. Content is king! A solid crowd-funding campaign means building a broader audience for the After Eden series. There’s no reason why we can’t see this sci-fi series move from the page to the screen and we see this “genesis of World War Three” in living color.
The Story of the Latest Book In the Series
Rising Leviathan (After Eden Series, Book #3): The Russian Bloc is hosting the summit at the opulent Catherine Palace outside of St. Petersburg. All three world superpowers are attending: the American President, the President of the CHIN (Chinese-Indian Alliance) and the Emperor of the Supreme Islamic Caliphate. The Russian President is so proud of himself and his goal to return his region to the status of superpower. It was a position they held until Western Europe fell to Islam, creating a new world power in the Caliphate, and relegating Russia (which merged with Eastern Europe out of mutual safety) to a second-rate power. But the unthinkable happens: the Russian President dies—or was it murder?
The chaos and intrigue are just beginning in Russia and Europa. And so could civil war.
The After Eden Series is a provocative, sci-fi thriller saga—a dramatic mix of politics, religion, and intrigue set over 75 years in the future. The epic begins in 2088 with the murder investigation of the most powerful political king-maker in America. A wider conspiracy is revealed and the start of a chain of events—from America to Mexico, Australia, Russia, Asia, and the Middle East—leading to explosion of World War III on September 11, 2125.
As with all the books in the series, Rising Leviathan is more than just a science-fiction thriller. The uniqueness of the After Eden Series is that it attempts to directly link our modern times to this future. The series is for anyone who loves hard science fiction, visionary sci-fi, dystopian fiction, and adventure sci-fi.
