Book II of S.O.L.A.D.™ Available NOW!

What would you do if you had powers that could save a city?

Not just any city... but your city?

Kevin Edwards and Juanita Grayson have just arrived back home to the city of Memphis, Tenn., after fighting a year-long war against demons on another world.

Hoping it was all a dream, they quickly find out that it wasn’t and now their beloved city is under attack by similar creatures they fought on Dark Earth.

With the help of some old friends, Kevin and Juanita, who transform into the superheroes Angelo™ and Angeline™: Soldiers of Light Against Darkness, the heroes will learn that evil can follow you home and that some times, the price of being a hero is the loss of the ones you love.

S.O.L.A.D.™: It’s Just the Beginning, Book II of the Angelo & Angeline Chronicles, is available now in print and eBook editions (at the links below).

Spread the word and get yours NOW!

S.O.L.A.D.™: It's Just the Beginning, Book II of the Angelo™ & Angeline™ Chronicles, will be released a week from today, October 31, in e-book and paperback editions!

My beta readers said they loved the second book in the Soldiers of Light Against Darkness™ series so much that they can't wait for the third and fourth installments, which I am currently working on.

This book was a bit of a challenge to finish, especially with the passings of my dad and my wife's dad near the end of last year. But, with love and support from God, family and friends, Book II of S.O.L.A.D.™ has been completed.

So, if you haven't read Book I, which is available in paperback and e-book editions on Amazon.com (http://amzn.to/1XdkUbz), CreateSpace(https://www.createspace.com/4287684) or my author website (http://ttreed2009.wix.com/tyronetonyreedjr), get it TODAY, because in SEVEN DAYS, the war hits home!!!

Memphis, the city of my birthplace, which I will always call home, is the setting for Book II and familiar streets and locations, as well as media personalities and companies are honored in this novel.

So, spread the word and enjoy the official FIRST LOOK of the front and back covers of Book II of S.O.L.A.D.™ and the updated Book I of S.O.L.A.D.™!

Can't wait to share this book with you,
Tyrone Tony Reed Jr.

P.S.: I'm looking for more reviews to put in an updated edition of BOOK I of S.O.L.A.D.™, so if you haven't reviewed the book yet but have read it, please post your review on the Amazon page for the book and send me a message letting me know that you did.

Be Passionate and Never Give Up!

Here's how passionate I am about using the gifts God gave me:

On Monday, I walked around downtown Memphis, taking photos of locations that are mention in Book II of S.O.L.A.D.™. Mind you, it was cloudy, drizzling and today I'm a little weak and sore from the power-walking I did.

But, it was so worth it. I could see the story playing out in my mind as I walked from location to location. Even got a great idea for a tie-in to the novel and future novels in the S.O.L.A.D.™ series.

All of this also happened on the fourth anniversary of my first of three attempts to raise money on Kickstarter to publish the Book I of S.O.L.A.D.™. The Lord has brought me so far and I know I have more to do, but I thank Him for being there.

I also got to help out my family and spend time with them.

And this morning, even though I'm moving a little slowly, I'm entering corrections two of my trusted beta readers have for book II, designing the book cover, working on an interactive website for the novel, entering two contests and applying to be a panelist at an upcoming convention. I’m also planning to pay it forward by introducing the world, through social media, to talented people I have met over the past couple of years.

Time waits for no man and it would be a shame to sit on the gifts and talents God has given you.

Ask God today what you should do, pray and get to work as He goes before you and blesses the consistent steps you take daily.

Have a blessed Tuesday,

Tyrone Tony Reed Jr.

First Draft of S.O.L.A.D.™ Book II is DONE!!!

So happy to announce that I wrote the last line of Book II of S.O.L.A.D.™ today around 4 p.m.!!!!
It was a really long and hard process to finish this book, especially with the passings of my father and father-in-law last year.
My dad continually asked me if I was finished with this book and I'm happy to scream from Earth to Heaven: "DAD, I'M FINISHED AND I'M STARTING ON MY NEXT ONE!!!"
I'm gonna let the manuscript sit for a few days and then start making edits and send it out to my trusty beta readers.
I can't wait for you all to read this book. The first one introduced you to the characters, their powers and their first year of being superheroes.
But, the second book is like a season of "24", with non-stop action, the introduction of new characters, life-changing events and a very cool wink to Book III, which I've already created a file and begun writing.
If you haven't gotten your copy of Book I, you can order an autographed copy at http://bit.ly/1JN3f6p. Please leave a review on Amazon or feel free to email me your review, which may appear on my social media pages or in future versions of my books!!!
Also like the official S.O.L.A.D.™ Facebook page at Soldiers of Light Against Darkness™ and share the link with everyone you know.
For those who have read the first book, here's a picture sneak peek of Book II. Wisewoman D tried warned Kevin in Book I that "the war, always, always hits home." And, unfortunately for Kevin and Juanita, she was right.
Stay tune for more announces as the release date for Book II draws nearer.
Thanks for your love and support and get ready for the fight of your life!!!

Tyrone Tony Reed Jr. accepts his certificate for short story, "Feeding the Beast"

Never give up on your dreams and keep moving forward!!!
(Video my wife, Tajuana G. Cheshier , filmed this morning of me accepting my honorable mention certificate for my short story, "Feeding the Beast", in the Talent Among Us XIV contest, presented by Main Street Publishing, Inc.is below)
Feel very honored to just have my story published in the TAU's book, "Awakenings", which collects all this year's contest entries.
I originally wasn't going to enter this contest. My heart was broken from my dad's passing and I didn't know what to write. But, then I thought about what my dad would want me to do and that he would tell me, "Keep writing, son!"
So, that's what I did. Several days after my dad's funeral, I wrote "Feeding the Beast," which I might develop into a novel or screenplay. I'm glad I wrote it.
To those out their who are fighting for their dreams, against all odds, keep on going and don't give up. God will open doors and make ways for you, but you have to do your part so God can put His supernatural with your natural.
Well, it's back to finishing up S.O.L.A.D.™ Soldiers of Light Against Darkness™ Book 2! My dad's birthday is Sunday, April 26 and it would make me so happy if I can have my first official draft of Book II done by then. So please check in with me some time this week and ask me "How's the book coming", just like he would do.
