If I Should Die is book 2 in the Fellowship Dystopia series. This novel is in progress. The estimated publication date is summer of 2021. If you haven’t already read it, you’ll want to check out My Soul to Keep, book one in the Fellowship Dystopia series.

Story Sentence

A Story Sentence is a one sentence description of the story arc. Generally it focuses on the protagonist. This is the story sentence for If I Should Die:

A peace-loving woman caught in a civil war must resort to violence to save lives or stick to her principles and sacrifice many.

Short Description

She hid from the violence, but it found her anyhow.

She once fought the Fellowship alongside the rebels and exiled her own parents. Now she navigates America’s inland waterways rescuing fugitives from tyranny and war.

But her once exiled sister, the new Prophet’s wife, offers an olive branch. And a rebel soldier, her brother, needs help. Helping comes first, but she won’t fight.

She sticks to her principles even when they find the marina vandalized and the owner Taken. Even when she must destroy her boat and they race to meet the rebel leader.

Miranda convinces the rebel leader to join a peace talk. But Miranda’s sister wants to be a hero to the theocracy and for Miranda to be a symbol.

Now amid betrayals and battles with psychotic clones, Miranda must choose. Will she choose nonviolence and sacrifice her rebel friends? Or will she  choose violence and death, even if it’s her own?

Sneak Peeks

Sneak Peeks listed below are early drafts of this book. The final book may have chapters in a different order, events changed or deleted. At least, the final version will be written more tightly with fewer typos and miscellaneous errors. *smile*

Video Readings

The following are my first YouTube videos. Not very polished as far as video tech goes, but I wanted to share something that might give someone a 20 minutes or so break from the pain and fear in the world.
