Cover Reveal: Children of the Forgotten by Charles Franklin

Hello, fellow friends!

It has been a while since I have posted something such as a cover reveal or one of my favorite lines from a recent read.

I sincerely apologize and am so thankful that I am remedying that as of now.

First up, a super cool cover reveal of my friend’s upcoming novel!

A few months ago, his publisher let him share with his followers online the potential book covers they have in mind through 99designs. I remember being so excited to see all the possibilities and vote on the ones I really liked.

Now the time has come to show you it’s epicness.




Here we go!



In a post-apocalyptic world, most people by age thirty have succumbed to The Sickness, a mysterious deadly illness. But the Sickness is not the only enemy for Collin Mann’s city. Hordes of deranged killers live in the hills around it. With few trained protectors, the future of the little city looks bleak.

Collin, fifteen years old, buries those the Sickness consumes. Slight and awkward, he shuns warrior training, avoiding the example of his big brother and guardian.

When killers attack at the watering hole, he’s called to step forward and defend. Instead, he freezes.

He’s ashamed. His people need him to fight. Can he do it? Or would a clumsy person like himself make any difference in the battle for existence?

Isn’t it awesome? I seriously love it and can’t wait to dive into its pages!

Thankfully, I don’t have to wait too long because a prequel is available! Yes, a prequel is available for you and me to help wet out appetite and get us even more excited for Children of the Forgotten!

In a secluded, post-apocalyptic city, a guardian is laid to rest. Upon his death, his pupil is named as his successor, but Arik Martin does not believe he is ready.

When a girl is taken by bloodthirsty killers in the hills, Arik must suppress his rage at his mentor’s death and lead a rescue party.

Can he save the girl and bring her home? Or will his recklessness result in more lives lost?
