The business of independently writing and publishing books takes time. In 2009 we published the first edition of HEARTLAND On the Side of Angels. This novel is Volume One in The Liberty & Property Legends saga. In April 2011, we released a second edition of the novel ahead of the publication of Volume Two in the series, EMPIRE FOR LIBERTY Dangerous Lullaby (2011). In 2012, we worked with Ava Pashley to publish THE STORYTELLER. In between books we have undertaken research trips within the United States, and attended the 2012 Book Expo America. In 2013 we achieved our goal of publishing Volume Three in The Liberty & Property Legends saga, FIRST COUNTRY Tinged with Rose. Our next release came with Volume Four in the saga, THE HOUR OF EVIDENCE Deceived (2015). Then came A PLACE AMONG HEROES, Book 1: Rise of Hope (2018), which begins Volume Five. Our latest release is A PLACE AMONG HEROES, Book 2: Return of Hope. Our sights are currently set on Book 3 in the triology that forms Volume 5. The grand saga continues! Our novels are available as paperback and ebook from online bookstores worldwide. We warmly welcome your contributions to the conversation between author, reader and publisher.

New Look for The Legends

Busy times here at Tank & Ferry as we gear up for the release of the third volume in The Liberty & Property Legends series.

One of the projects has been to consult with marketing expert and author Vicki Morrison, Director of Strategic Solutions, who encouraged us to look at branding the series with new covers.

Since choosing a cover for the third volume was in the works, it seemed like the appropriate time to put the branding of the saga and author into effect.

The process has been a long and challenging one.

Creativity is a double-edged sword. The elation of crafting something from the flash of an idea to real substance is sorely tempered by the push of practicality.

Throw it on the page, doesn't that look wonderful must be poked and prodded into straight lines and even spaces.

Left brain and right brain become confused, at odds with one another.

But it has to be done. Decisions must be made. Letting go mode engaged. And it's finally accomplished!

Thank you to those brave souls who gave their thoughtful opinions along the way. All your input was noted and considered and appreciated.

The cover images you see on the right hand side of the page are the new covers.
