August 2010 New Orleans, LA – Synarchy Book 1: The Awakening, a self-published gem that has largely flew under the radar, might not stay that way for long. When first released in 2008 it landed a finalist position in The Best Book Awards. Since then it has racked up numerous five star reviews, with one radio show host calling author DCS, “the next JK Rowling.”
The first novel in what DCS says will be a six part series, Synarchy Book 1: The Awakening is a complex thrill ride, hailed by critics as, “The Godfather meets Stargate.” It is a page turner, and a novel that crosses into multiple genres masterfully, As an added perk, fans of the book also have the option of interacting with characters from the Synarchy universe through a text-based roleplay game called Synarchy 2012.
Popular book reviewer, A Journey of Books, has said of author DCS, “There’s just something about the way that DCS writes that allows the eyes to flow over the page, lifting the story into the air. The descriptions and especially display of emotions were so vivid that one could really see the story.”
Now, Synarchy Book 1: The Awakening, stands poised on the brink of even greater success by being named a finalist in The Great American Author competition, hosted by the popular author community Offthebookshelf.com. The prize is the kind of exposure few authors ever see; their book featured in a television commercial.
“I’m so excited about the possibilities,” says author DCS. “My goal with Synarchy wasn’t just to entertain but to spread a message. Synarchy is a great blend of fact and fiction.”
For any author, let alone a self-published one, it’s difficult to carve the way through the thousands of titles that are published every month. DCS is counting on fans to take the time to vote, and then spread the word.
