Zharmae Publishing Press Announces Launch of Exile Empire by Joshua Done
About the Novel
A few exemplary individuals must lead an army of exiles in a struggle to survive and raise an Empire from the ashes of civilization. James Ursidae lost his family as a child, breaking his sanity and turning him into a vicious but brilliant warrior.
Driven by both his technological genius and vengeful anger James finds himself on a journey of creative destruction. As he rises from prejudice, trauma, indecision, and old-fashioned youthful passion, he discovers a newfound desire to protect, and in the process James helps create a civilization based not only on the archetype of the hero, but something true to human nature, the raw force of the antihero.
This science fiction novel contains some of the most epic warfare you could ask for in a SciFi. By combining a style similar to Orison Scott Card with a practical, down to earth feel of Jim Butcher The Exile Empire throws you into a new world of real people, real machines, and real sci-fi action.
About the Author
Joshua Done - was born in Long Beach California and grew up in the Snoqualmie Valley of Washington State. He loves to read science fiction and urban fantasy because, "science fiction allows you to approach human questions without the trappings of modern society".
Overcoming obstacles has become a big part of Josh's life. He readily responds to challenges from rock climbing (he earned his teaching credentials from Boy Scouts of America) to conquering severe food allergies by becoming a self-taught gluten free, dairy free chef. When Josh complained to his brother that science fiction lacked stories that, "follow historical trends", he was challenged to describe that world and put it in writing. Josh responded by creating the world of the Hyperion Empire and writing his first novel, Exile Empire.
Josh has a BA in political economy from Hillsdale College in Michigan. When not writing, Josh enjoys collecting ancient coins and his hunting and fishing expeditions into the local forest.
