All the King’s Men

Book #3

“Truly masterful storytelling” – Goodreads.com

Book-3-All the King's Men_393x600More than a hundred years ago, a king declared that all geniuses, scientists and inventors were abominations, save for those willing to become his Conventioneers. His edict spread like wildfire through the kingdoms, and drove the hunted into the arms of the secret societies, the Tub and the Fare.

Decades later, having taken control of the remains of the crushed Fare, a young Marcus Pieman follows up on rumors of a homeless, teenage Abominator in his city. When the scared Nikolas Klaus looked up at Marcus for the first time, a tremendous bond was forged.

A betrayal leads Tee to a showdown with her greatest foe. Who breaks and who lays bleeding in the middle of nowhere?

And Mounira learns the truth about the once great inventor, Christophe Creangle.

The Author

Adam DreeceAdam Dreece kicked off his indie author career with his best-selling steampunk meets fairy tale series, The Yellow Hoods, which struck a chord with kids 9-15 and adults. After four books in the series, the former software architect put out two more young adult books, the post-apocalyptic fantasy book The Wizard Killer – Season One, and then his science fiction novel, The Man of Cloud 9. The first two novels in The Yellow Hoods series, as well as The Wizard Killer, have been finalists for Book of the Year awards from the Independent Author’s Network.

When he’s not working on his next book, Adam can be found giving talks at schools, libraries, associations, as well as comic-con type events like CalgaryExpo and FanExpoCanada on subjects from how to get one’s ideas out and stepping outside of one’s comfort zone, to how to give a successful book signing.

Along the way, Adam has faced many challenges, including working around his Dyslexia (reading and writing disorder), and needing to be ruthless with his time and energy in face of his severe asthma and chronic abdominal scar pain. He’s become an inspiration to some, and a symbol of tenacious hard work to others.

He lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with his wife and children. He is an active online mentor at adamdreece.com, and is a busy public speaker, panelist, and author in Canada and the Pacific Northwest.

Q&A with Adam

What is something unique/quirky about you?

Well, I’m sure there are other dyslexic, chronic pain ‘enjoying’, severe asthmatic authors who used to be software architects, so let me think. And I’m sure you don’t mean dressing up as Supergirl whenever I have to write action scenes, because that’s not true. Hmm, a genuine quirk might be using different voices to act out the dialogue in my books. I’ll talk to the mirror, I’ll walk down a street talking, all in the pursuit of living a moment that I can capture and put to paper.

What are some of your pet peeves?

At the ABSOLUTE top of the list has to be people who are immune to discussion. They are so self-convinced that nothing else in the realm of possibility can exist. It gets my left eyebrow twitching. Another pet peeve are indie authors who don’t believe in having a professional editor. That rounds up the top five because those bother me so much, they’re super-sized 😉

 
What book do you think everyone should read?

There are three books that always come to mind as the ones that influenced me most: Brave New World by Aldus Huxley, 1984 by George Orwell, and Good Omens by Neil Gaimen and Terry Pratchet. The last one was about how a great collaboration can still show the best of both authors, without having to compromise.

 
What kind of world ruler would you be?

Metric. 😉
