SHILOH SAGA: SANCTUARY (March 2017) & TESTAMENT (Fall 2017)

The rest of the story always lies in the restoration that follows tragedy - that's the crux of my book, Sanctuary with its lost in time setting and colorful characters in idyllic Shiloh, GA (but fictional). In real life, our life story resides within our travails after being knocked down.

SANCTUARY: Update/Preview

The first of the Shiloh Saga series is called, Sanctuary. The story centers around a retired publishing editor, Theo Phillips, and his wife who move to the idyllic South Georgia town of Shiloh.

    Sistie,

    Thank you for your interest in Sanctuary. Deeds Publishing in Athens, GA is presently preparing it for release, March 2017. We chose not to rush it out to allow adequate time for promoting its release and marrying it to the sequel, Testament, with its planned release by Fall 2017. I and my editor are working on finishing the sequel at the present. I will definitely keep you informed and plan on you receiving an advance copy. If you feel it would appropriate to share with others in Hancock County and Sparta, I’d be glad to plan a visit at an appropriate time and place to introduce the book because of your tragedy helped shape the story. God bless. T M “Mike” Brown

    Maria, I am excited as I am wrapping up the book cover design this week, and the Hancock Courthouse fire photo made the front cover, and the original courthouse photo will on the back cover. My publisher in Athens knows we will be planning a book event in Sparta as a part of the launch promo plans. You may count on the fact we will be in touch shortly. Thank you. Mike
