The Kingdom of Walden, Book 1
Author: Kristan Cannon
Publisher: KCEditions (Feb. 2016)
We thought we had nothing to worry about…
…We were wrong
The residents of the small town of Whitefish are no strangers to snow. Used to being forgotten and digging their own way out, no one thought anything of it when, during one of the coldest winters on record, help just never came. But, as fuel runs out and raiders press in on all sides, Derek, Sheridan, and Garrett realize it’s not just the snow they need to dig their way out of…
From Doctor to Queen…
Working in a busy ER, Sheridan Wither saw the best and worst of humanity–but now she finds herself leading the last bastion of civilization–with Derek as her Master Ranger.
…And from salesman to Master Ranger.
Derek Moss, a salesman nearing his retirement, and his wife find themselves far from home with little more than the clothes on their backs–and lucky enough to find themselves at least among friends on Sheridan’s ranch just outside of Whitefish.
Driven to find answers–and his own place in a new world–Derek forms the Rangers from similarly displaced citizens and leads them to find Garrett to bring back one, tiny but bright spark of hope to a fledgling nation… in the form of the solar field on Sheridan’s farm.

The gods must be crazy. Do something great or they’ll kill you.
Meet Christopher Reed and Morgan Kinder, both young and brash college students, who come of age in many of the ways that Tom Jones came of age in Fielding’s classic novel. Both seniors at Dartmouth, one tossed out of school for behaving badly — very badly, even if he’s a Superman — the other, a woman who loves literature and works as an intern for a high-power New York publishing house on a quest to find the vanished author of a lost manuscript entitled simply When, 20:37, whose work is said to conjure up the dark side of American life and predict the future.
Their lives connect and disconnect, cross paths, then diverge, as the story and characters travel from the snows of New England to the catacombs of New York to the cornfields of Iowa and beyond to the sweet madness of California. Laughter and sorrow fill the pages. Life turns on its head. And the American landscape comes alive with a huge gallery of eccentric characters, oddballs and lovable madmen.
Can the cocky young Reed redeem himself by doing something truly great? Will his counterpart, Morgan Kinder, recapture what has been lost from the past, discarded or ignored, and in so doing, alter the world of literature as we know it?
Will each happen to change the other in Tom Maremaa’s dazzling, page-turning work of contemporary fiction? Find out by CLICKING HERE and ordering your copy of Of Gods, Royals and Superman TODAY!
