Between Two Minds: Revelation the Next Installment in the Must-Read Psychological Thriller Series

Book One took readers’ breath away. Book Two will blow your mind!

October 16, 2018 – Dyer, IN – Hammerstone Creative announced today the publishing of Between Two Minds: Revelation. It is the second book in the Between Two Minds series; sci-fi psychological thrillers that take place in the near future where the minds of people can be transferred into new host bodies.

Written by the innovative independent author, D. C. Wright-Hammer, Revelation picks up where Awakening left off. Ryan attempts to move on with life in his new body, but some things are easier said than done. When he stumbles upon a cryptic letter from the past, he becomes obsessed with learning the truth about Charlie’s life and the mind migration procedure. But the more truth he unravels, the deeper the lies go.

The true origins of mind migration are only known to the cursed individuals who had the misfortune of helping develop it. Follow Dr. Rex Martin as he pushes his abilities to the limit to birth the world’s first “neural transfer” and discovers the truth about himself and the corporation employing him. Put in a no-win situation, Dr. Martin must decide what’s more important: his life and legacy or the lives of his lover and colleagues.

In Between Two Minds: Revelation, the past, present, and future are on an unstoppable collision course and the fate of mankind hangs in the balance. Who will suffer the consequences of being between two minds?

“Readers let me know that Book One was incredible – the grittiness, suspense, and plot twists,” stated D. C. Wright-Hammer. “With Book Two, I’ve taken the Between Two Minds world to the next level. Get ready for another amazing ride.”

In addition to writing through Hammerstone Creative, D C Wright-Hammer works full-time as a certified scrum product owner for a large software company where he helps to drive the development of the company’s flagship product.

Book Description:

Andrew Foster, a real estate developer in San Diego, is a man suddenly haunted by his past. Memories, like specters from his former life of sex, drugs and rock and roll have come crashing into his current world of business in this sunny coastal city. The ominous, repeated appearance of a black SUV at the beach where he meets his sister each week, has triggered fears that it’s payback time for a bad choice he made years ago.

To add to his frustrations, his hopes of a big breakthrough in the San Diego real estate market haven’t come to pass. He’s starting to wonder if his visions of success will ever come true when an investor offers to finance his dream project. Soon things start to fall into place for Andrew in business, life, and even love. He starts dating the beautiful and business-savvy Nicole but even with her at his side he can’t seem to shake the ghosts of his past. As the relationship with Nicole deepens, Andrew opens up to her about the many loves and adventures that have taken him from the crazy days of living in Big Sur and Joshua Tree to business success in San Diego. Her wise insights help him face the character flaws that have caused him to fail in his past relationships.

Rounding out his social life is his once-a-week task of assisting his sister with her nanny job watching a young boy named Chandler. They build sand castles on the beach and enjoy the beauty of nature together. But the now ominous weekly appearance of a strange car at the beach has awakened Andrew’s fears. Is the boy in danger? Or worse, has an enemy from Andrew’s past come seeking revenge and now Chandler’s caught in the middle?

A strange twist of events threatens to destroy Andrew’s dreams, but as he searches for answers, a sudden revelation offers hope of a future he never imagined.

Guest Post

Tell us about the settings for your novel.

I’m a native Californian. My family on my mom’s side goes back to the late 1840’s. In my college years I spend time in both Big Sur, Joshua Tree and Mount Shasta. Having spent time there, I believe I’ve been able to bring a sense of realism to those locations.  The same holds true for San Diego. I’ve lived in San Diego for over 30 years and have hung out in a lot of the locations. Being a California native for several decades I’ve had my finger on the culture and can bring my first-hand view point into the setting.

Tell us about the characters in your novel.

Interesting enough, although my book is a work of fiction, I spent a few years in my youth hanging out in the hippie culture and ran into a lot of people like the ones in my story. There was a dark side to the whole “Love” scene. “Free Love” wasn’t always so free and a lot of people got hurt and still carry the scars from some of the wild living back then.

Recreational drug use in your novel.

Back in my youth I had spent a few years immersed in the hippie culture and experimented with pot and LSD. I think the encounters that the characters in the novel have are realistic and some of the “nightmares” the protagonist experiences harken back to some of the “wild-oats that a lot of people have sowed in their youth. Now that pot is legal in California and there’s a growing interest in psycho active drugs many more people are experimenting with drugs. The whole Rave culture is a clear by-product of the generation of experimentation that went before it. I think people will relate to the arc of the characters and where our culture is today based on what the youth culture of 30-40 years ago were into.

A dark direction with no redemption?

That’s true, but I’m a great believer in the possibility of hope and the promise of a good future. With that in mind, I hope the reader will stick with me to the end. There are a lot of surprises on the way, but I think they’ll be pleased with the ending. Most of us have made choices we regret and sometimes they come back later to bite us. The protagonist in Boy On The Beach faces such a dilemma. But in this story, there’s the possibility of redemption at the end. None of us have a guarantee of a “happy” ending but we can always work and hope for the best. I believe the reader will find that even though there are some serious dark places in this story, in the end, both the journey and the ending will be worth the time invested in this mystery.

Working on my novel in Big Sur.

While I was working on my novel my wife and I spent a few days in Big Sur, California. One of the settings for my novel is along its beautiful coast. I’d spent a summer there years ago and it was fascinating to come back to that idyllic place again. In my opinion it’s one of the most stunning locations on the planet. Even though it’s accessible through Highway One, it’s also quite isolated in a way. Last year a major rock slide shut down the highway for some time so there was only access from one end. As a result, you had one of California’s major tourist attractions isolated in some ways from your casual traveler. To me it’s still such a “primitive” area and not that far removed from an era when sightseers could only visit it after an arduous journey. When we were there recently, we spent a couple of days in the modest but nice lodgings that dot the coastal cliffs. It’s a true natural treasure that I hope everyone gets to visit at least once in their lifetime.


 

 

Meet the Author:

 

R.D. Maddux has story telling in his blood. Since he was young he’s always loved a good tale. He’s been writing seriously since he was in high school and college. His novels range from Mystery and Intrigue to Sci-fi/fantasy. With Boy On The Beach he’s set the story in modern America, to be exact, on the West Coast of California. He’s a native of the golden state and has been a resident of San Diego since 1987. Before that he grew up in northern California and lived in the Sacramento Valley and Bay Area with sojourns in some of the beautiful parts of our state.Living in California for over 60 years he couldn’t help but watch the way things have changed in our culture and the impact this coast makes on the rest of America and the world. So even though Boy On The Beach is fiction, like most serious novels, it is not without a context and comment on issues we all face in our changing world. It takes place in real locations that are very familiar to him and its characters, which are fictional, no doubt have their counterparts in the real world. Boy On The Beach is a story of intrigue, suspense, revenge, love and redemption with flashbacks to the era when sex, drugs and rock and roll set our culture on it’s inevitable journey to our present day. This idea has been rattling around in his heart and mind for a decade and it’s finally coming to the page.Connect with the author: Website ~ Twitter ~ Facebook ~ Instagram
