Signal Boost for St. Tommy

Find the series Here!

I've been doing a lot of thinking about purpose and mortality recently, though you'd probably never guess by what I actually post about here. Wasteland & Sky is an attempt to at least be relevant to the arts and entertainment and how they relate to us in return. Naturally, with things being such a mess, it is sometimes difficult to focus on the bigger picture without getting too broad or obvious. I would assume those who visit here also well know about these things.

This is why I've also tried harder this year to boost other writers and artists as best as I can. There are many artists and entertainers out there who have a focused goal, know what they want, and strive to reach it. In an age of corporate focus tested product and propaganda disguised as art, we need these people more than ever. We don't have a giant money-burning media machine behind us to give us exposure. We have to do the job ourselves.

So I want to focus on others who put in the work for their success. One such individual is Declan Finn and his St. Tommy, NYPD series. I know there are many readers of action thrillers out there but who are sick and tired of the way things are in OldPub. The formula has gotten stale long ago. You know pretty much every beat coming before you open the book.

However, this series is something quite new and different from what you would find in that decrepit swamp of closed book chains. This is written by someone with a passion for storytelling beyond the tropes that OldPub desires in their formula. 

The description:

My name is Officer Thomas Nolan, and I am a saint.

Tommy Nolan lives a quiet life. He walks his beat – showing mercy to the desperate. Locking away the dangerous. Going to church, sharing dinner with his wife and son. Everyone likes Tommy, even the men he puts behind bars.

Then one day a demon shows up and he can smell it. Tommy can smell evil – real evil. Now he’s New York City’s only hope against a horrifying serial killer that preys on the young and defenseless.

But smell alone isn’t enough to get a warrant. Can Tommy track down the killer and prove his guilt?

Dragon Award Nominated Author Declan Finn returns with his typical action-packed, Catholic influenced style, in this groundbreaking horror series about an honest, religious man given the powers of a saint to fight demons in the Big Apple.

How do you do forensics on a killer possessed by a demon?

Can Tommy catch the killer before he becomes a martyr? Or will the demon bring darkness beyond imagination to the whole of New York? Read Hell Spawn today and find out!

There are currently eight books in the series released, but I know with certainty that there are more on the way. Declan Finn is a prolific and proficient writer, so you know he's already got a plan for this. That alone is more than the "big" writers in the genre pouring out of OldPub. This series is the breath air the genre has needed for a long time, so be sure to check it out. Especially if you like horror in your action.

The religious angle is also not a gimmick. In fact, it's key to the whole series. They definitely don't make them like this in OldPub!

As the description continues:


This book contains Catholicism, God, guns, miracles, America and the presumption that all life is sacred starting from conception. It will also accurately depict abortion, psychopathology, and other things that will be horrific. It's a horror novel, that should be expected. Also, it pokes fun at other Catholic orders and societies, because Catholics have a sense of humor.

That's definitely something you wouldn't get away with in OldPub. 

The entire series (so far!) is available here on Silver Empire's site. Give it a look. There isn't anything else out there like it.
