COMING LATER IN 2023:
THINGS OF LITTLE CONSEQUENCE by John Casey
DESTROY CREATION: Phase II by Ryan Kovacs
THE MASLOW CONSPIRACY: A Mac Sisco Novel by Lou Earle
To Be Released in 2023
by John Casey
Things of Little Consequence is an unapologetic exploration of sentiment, circumstance, and thought that poetically suggests the human condition is less complex than it is complicated--that life is not as enigmatic or indecipherable as we prefer to believe.
by JOHN CASEY
A Raw Thoughts Book
Book two of The Raw Thoughts Series
Meridian is the follow-on to Casey's National Book Award-nominated RAW THOUGHTS. Each successive poem-photo pairing (each 'raw thought') builds on an underlying philosophy that compels us to assess and adjust what and how we think with the aim of improving our lives and by extension, the lives of those around us.
Meridian addresses analysis and improvement of thought in a manner that is less emotive and more refined than in Raw Thoughts.It offers an approach that is cognitive to an extent that most people will not instinctively endeavor to pursue. This is a distinction that lends itself naturally to a next-level pursuit of clarity and personal growth.

What Reviewers Are Saying about

"Riveting, particularly terrifying because of its current-day context. A fast-paced, high-octane thriller that fans of this genre will adore."

"Earle's ability to dovetail political cat-and-mouse games with social inspection lends a realistic tone and attraction to The Typhon Affair that places this thriller on par with the best of established genre authors.

"Tense, smart, fast-moving action thriller…. Woven skillfully into the twisty plot are questions about courage, ethics, integrity, loyalty, duty, and patriotism, adding relevance and substance to the narrative. A striking, fast-paced tale loaded with interesting characters, crisp dialogue, bullets, and bloodshed."
