NEW! Afterdeath

Afterdeath has been nominated for book of the year in YA fiction by Foreword Reviews Indies Awards.

Chloe and Olivia Borders haven't had the best of luck in their lives. Their parents died tragically when they were young, and the woman who raised them, grandma Rose, has just passed away. To rekindle their friendship, the twins decide to go on a nation-wide road trip. On the first leg of their journey, disaster strikes and they are both snuffed. Waking up on the other side, however, they have to come to grips with the fact that the afterlife is nothing like either of them imagined. Now they are in a fight for their very existence, and on a quest to return to the world of the living.

Ideas float in the ether like dust motes dancing in a jag of sunlight. When they collide and coalesce, they plummet to earth to plant themselves in rich, loamy strata, and birth the most interesting of human (and sometimes inhuman) dramas. We at Trode Publications like to think of ourselves as the biographers of those strange and tortuous ideas that grow into bizarre and wonderful shapes. Follow us on their journey to see where they lead.


What do yaks have to do with adventures, you might ask, and that's a fair question, and I'll answer it, but first I should ask you: what do yaks not have to do with adventure? That's the real question, isn't it? On the one hand, you have far-flung space sagas, and the trials and tribulations of famous scientists (some more dead than others), as well as viking demi-gods getting screwed around, as well as some pretty super unnatural stuff. And then you have yaks. What did the yaks ever do to deserve any of this? Plenty. Gods, if you only knew. Suffice it to say that if you click on this link, you'll discover a world full of adventure and yaks. So go ahead. I'm waiting. Go on. Just click the damn thing, will you?
