Shifters, 711 Press September Publication

Eighteen-year-old Devin Podrick has spent most of his life living a mile below the Nevada desert in a secret government facility known as the Bunker. It is here that he trains tirelessly to become a "tracker," a highly valued government super-soldier whose sole purpose is to travel back in time to kidnap men and women with superpowers known as "shifters," whose super abilities are brought on by special genetic traits. But Devin yearns to break free. When Devin's sensei, Grandmaster Ohayashi discovers that the Bunker's leader, Richard Dunleavy is attempting to capture and own the genetic secrets of every shifter throughout time until they find and kill the very first, the sensei devises a plan to destroy the Pool, the water conduit that is used to create a slipstream in time to the past.

But when their plans thwarted, Devin is sucked into the slipstream and pulled back thousands of years, wherein he comes face to face with the first shifter, the mother of them all. Soon he and a band of allies, spurred by a binding prophecy, must fight to free the last surviving Atlanteans amidst the total destruction of their city.

Live an all new sci-fi adventure that will explain time travel, the fall of Atlantis, the birth of the pyramids, and the fate of all mankind. Get your copy today by visiting the official product page!

Where Did the Idea For Shifters Come From?

Of the people who've read advanced copies of Shifters,  they've often expressed their wonder as to where James and I got the idea. Well, of course we were inspired by the episode of Order of 5ive: Origins so, as a starting point, we used secondary characters from that mini book. But once James suggested the time traveling angle, I immediately thought about using the pool of water for the conduit through which to travel. The idea came from an old episode of Twilight Zone where a man jumped into a pond, swam to the bottom and came out in another time period. You'll understand once you read the book. Now, I got to get back to writing notes on Shifter 2 for James, where we, once again, allow our character to jump through time to unfold a new story.
