Power Trip

Young Adult Adventure Book

René thinks he’s hit the jackpot!

After six months of no luck following college, he finds the perfect job with excellent benefits at The Power Company doing what he graduated in.

But a newly hired manager has a mysterious agenda. Employees disappear with no warning, and René is caught in a massive explosion that leaves the city of 8 million without power during a record-breaking heat wave. Riots rage and fires burn as the city plunges into chaos, and René finds himself framed for sabotage.

Only the intervention of a silent wanderer can save him and the rest of the city from a deadly power trip.

Praise for Power Trip

“Straight to the point: I enjoyed this one so much that I could not put it down! It’s an adventure, technically speaking, but there was a wry half-smile in my lips all the time. Mr. Thomason did pulp just as Terry Pratchett does fantasy: with a jaded, not-hidden-in-the-least streak of humor and criticism that added layers and layers of enjoyment to the whole experience.”
Ron C. Nieto at Stories of my life

“There is a real tongue-in-cheek style that manages to poke fun at the business sector and large companies in general without appearing rude or derogatory and there are some really positive messages about monopoly, greed, corruption and profiteering that manages to hit the nail on the head.”
SFBook.com

“Fun, engaging, accessible. ... [T]he illustrations would have sealed the deal.... Some of them are genius, like the imp ones. Freaking brilliant.”
L.E.Olteano from Butterfly-o-Meter Books

“This is an enjoyable read for those looking for something that is multilayered. Many of the situations will sound familiar to anyone that has worked in a large business....it will make you think.”
Jennifer Hampton from Hampton Reviews

“...the satiric nature of the story really made it a great read.”

Adult Coloring Books

A few years ago I was reminiscing about how much I loved coloring books as a youngster. I couldn’t get enough of them. I wondered why they weren’t made for adults and thought about all the cool things you could do with that format. But I never did more than that, because I figured it wouldn’t catch on.

I should have known better and trusted my instincts. They’re almost always right.

Just a couple of years after I had that thought, the Adult Coloring Book market exploded! I see them for sale all over the place. But most of those are just coloring books with a series of images to color. They didn’t go beyond that.

But I did.

I created an entire graphic novel that one can color with a gallery at back with several pin up images. That way not only do you get a log of great art to color, but you get an entire story to read as well. It's like a two for one!

Enjoy!

Book Reviews

A while back I decided to try out Goodreads and their author tools. One thing that resulted was a rather odd review of my second novel. I’m still not sure what to think of it, but someone took the time to make it, so I decided to post it.

Enjoy!

Young Adult Science Fiction Novel

The Scientific Method

Young Adult Science Fiction Adventure

He’s done it!

Brent Jakes has discovered the Unified Field Theory, the Holy Grail of Physics! It will provide unlimited energy, new medical breakthroughs, and other advances only dreamed of before. There’s just one on catch: it’ll cost three men their careers. Unfortunately, science isn’t immune to the corruption of politics.

Only the intervention of a silent wanderer can stop them...

Praise for The Scientific Method

“...fast paced YA novel with lots of energy and a unique style....intelligently laid out, managing to avoid the pitfall of appearing patronizing and dumbing down which so often plagues the YA market.”
SFBook.com

“Thomason’s prose is clean and colorful, but not condescending.... His dialogue ... is stand-out.”
The Scattering

“A choice pick of science fiction, highly recommended.”
Midwest Book Review

Mourning the New Year

Another reason I look at the New Year with dread is how cold and bleak January and February are. The days are the shortest, the snowfall the highest, and the temperatures the lowest. It really feels like the death of the year, the not the birth of a new one. March, to me, feels like a new beginning. The days are longer, the temperatures higher, and the beginnings of spring and life can be seen.

New Year Anticlimatic

I’ve never really liked New Years Day or thought much of it as a holiday. Probably because I’ve spent so much time in cold weather, and January means long, cold, and bleak. Add to that the fact that I’ve just come off a series of great holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas) and no great holidays to look forward to for many, many, many weeks, and New Years is more a time of mourning than celebrating. But I recognize I’m in the minority. I’ve seen some pretty big parties, and I’ve lived in countries where New Years celebrations outshone those at Christmas.

For those that celebrate New Years, make a big deal out of it, and spend time coming up with resolutions they have no intention of keeping, I’m happy for them. But me personally, I go to bed early that night.

Ring In the New Year

This is the first of a new series of somewhat daily comics I’ll be posting on the website. Some will be humorous; others will be part of a long running adventure. This is the first of the humorous strips, although it could easily be part of the long running adventure. Enjoy!

Wandering Koala Adult Coloring Book 1

A complete adventure you can color

Not all horror stories involve haunted houses and serial killers. Some are even more sinister.

For years the government has collected and stored emails, phone calls, and other personal information from its citizens. At the same time, identity theft is at an all time high. It was only a matter of time until this database—an all too tempting target for would-be thieves—would be compromised and the identities of countless citizens put up for auction to the highest bidder.

Can even the intervention of the Wandering Koala, a mysterious figure left speechless since childhood, protect the identities of every man, woman, and child?
