Good morrow, Dragons! Today I'm delighted to share with you the cover for author Charles Franklin's debut novel, Children of the Forgotten! Without further adieu...

HAHAHAHAHA. (Yup, I'm totally going to make you wait.)

Just keep scrolling, just keep scrolling...

And here...




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?


Charles was born and raised in Texas. From there, he joined the United States Army and has traveled the world. Along the way, he saw the most beautiful set of eyes he had ever seen. They belonged to a girl... and he married her right away. Twenty years later, they have three children and are finally headed back home to Texas for good.

Upon retiring from the Army after twenty-three years, Charles will continue to serve others as a teacher in the town he grew up in. When he's not in the classroom, or spending time with his family, Charles writes stories about faith, love, hope, and adventure.

His debut novel, Children of the Forgotten: The Anistemi (Book I), will release in August and he has already begun work on the second book in the trilogy. Charles is also writing an action thriller, and has begun outlining another series set in the Anistemi world.

Readers can connect with Charles via his website, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, as well as the hashtags #CotF and #Anistemi.


Eeep! Isn't that cover gorgeous? The sword, the stone, the sparks... and a story set in a futuristic world? I'm so excited for Children of the Forgotten to release!

What's your favorite thing about the cover? Are you looking forward to Children of the Forgotten's release?
