The Remnant Blog Tour

Hey everyone! Today, I'm welcoming William Michael Davidson to the Five Year Project as part of his blog tour.

William Michael Davidson lives in Long Beach, California with his wife and two daughters. A believer that "good living produces good writing," Davidson writes early in the morning so he can get outside, exercise, spend time with people, and experience as much as possible.

A writer of speculative fiction, he enjoys stories that deal with humanity's inherent need for redemption.

For more on Davidson and his writing, connect with him on Goodreads, Twitter, Facebook, and Amazon Author’s Page.

Welcome to the Five Year Project, William. Since I'm all about goals on this blog, I was wondering about five-year goal. Tell me about it? 

My five year-goal is fairly simple.  Assuming The Remnant does well, I would like to finish the trilogy.  I have finished the first draft of the next novel, Mass Exodus, which is the sequel to The Remnant.  It’s going to take me several months to edit it and clean it up.  I would also like to write the third book in the trilogy.  In addition to finishing this series, I would like to publish another novel I recently finished, Storm Taken, and write an additional novel I have an idea for that is a bit larger (maybe 120,000 words or so).  So all in all, lots of writing and publishing in the next five years.

Colton Pierce apprehends Abberants—those who display symptoms of faith—and quarantines them on a remote island to ensure public safety.  Years prior, the government released a genetically-engineered super flu that destroyed the genes believed to be the biological source of spiritual experience in an effort to rid the world of terrorism. As an extractor with the Center for Theological Control, Colton is dedicated to the cause.

But Colton's steadfast commitment is challenged when he learns his own son has been targeted for extraction. An underground militia, the Remnant, agrees to help Colton save his son in exchange for his assistance with their plan to free the Aberrants on the island.

Colton is faced with the most important decision of his life. Remain faithful to the CTC? Or give up everything to save his son?

THE REMNANT is available to order in eBook form at the following sites:

Thanks for stopping by, William! What do you guys think of the cover? Cool, isn't it? 


  1. Misha, it's always interesting to learn where an author hopes to go with their work and looking at a five-year goal is a great idea. Thanks for being a part of William's tour.

  2. It's a very cool cover. So glad you're helping William get it out there! (I was already booked out to June.)

    I completely agree that awesome writing comes from living life fully. We draw on the emotion in our hearts every time we sit down to write.

  3. Cool you have plans to make it a trilogy. Trust me, that helps.

  4. And I certainly hope The Remnant does well and he finishes off the series.

  5. I like the idea of a five year plan - I need to do a new one for my own writing goals!

  6. Best of luck to William, awesome cover!

  7. Sounds like a great plan! Congrats, William!

  8. I need to remember to get out and do the active/spend time with the living stuff...William must be a smart guy!

  9. Glad you guys like the concept of the book. It was super fun to write. I have part of my rough draft for the sequel in a notebook and have been transferring it my computer. After a few more sittings it should all be transferred and I can start to edit it. Lots and lots of work ahead!

  10. Congrats William. Love the premise sounds like my kind of read. Nice cover too;

  11. It's a very interesting cover with the juxtapositin of robot and religion. Although seriously? Putting all religious fanatics on an island sounds good to me. Wishing William good luck!

  12. Great goal! Trilogies work well.
    Love the cover.

  13. Whoa, dark and intriguing. Protecting a child is always a god motivation for a character:)

  14. Congrats William. What a dark tale. Pretty sure he'll help his son.
