BOOKS A LIFE OF DEATH Book 1 Ghosts are speaking to Alex, but can he bring them justice? Alex is a troubled teen with a checkered past, a broken home, and a surprising ability: psychometry. When he touches items murder victims held in their final moments, he relives the events in gruesome detail. But who will believe a troubled teen, especially when murders implicate the town’s founding family? If you like amazing supernatural stories that are intense, powerful, and fraught with emotion, then you'll love Weston Kincade's suspenseful coming-of-age trilogy, A Life of Death. Ghosts are speaking, and they want answers. Heed the call. Buy A Life of Death. “Full of emotion and angst, and some wonderful imagery, you will feel this story as you read it.” ~ Mark Matthews, author of Milk-Blood Published by Books of the Dead Press, the rights to the first two books in the A Life of Death Trilogy were returned to Weston January 1, 2017. The new release will be in late May 2017

Worst of all, I had to tell a publisher for the first time ever that I might not finish a contracted book. Lucky for me, said publisher was quite understanding and gave me a year’s extension. I’m happy to say the book, Man of War , is coming out this year from the wonderful people at Meteor House . Though I am back to writing, I have slowed down considerably and may never be able to reach the word counts I did before. But I’ll do what I can because even a little is better than nothing. Tell me about a project or accomplishment that you consider to be the most significant in your career. Man of War . Simply because I truly didn’t believe I would ever finish it, let alon
