First Up: YA Dystopian
The Next High Priest Series is a near-world dystopian read that will capture your imagination and delight your senses.
Here’s the pitch:
Emma isn’t a typical teenager. Who in their right mind would spend hours studying the Holy Text? Who has the audacity to presume they can connect with the Sovereign?
Yet she must try.
She will implore the Almighty to send them the High Priest her people so desperately need, the one who will restore balance to an out-of-control world.
And if she died trying?
Then so be it.
The Next High Priest Series features page-turning novella-length books to keep you engaged and reading into the night.
The first installment is Seeking the Sovereign and the second is Pompous Jack. Due out in 2024.
Fun, Faith-Friendly Fiction
Enjoy realistic reads for the spiritually minded who don’t want religion shoved down their throats, while at the same time not having to worry about blushing at the content of too many other of today’s books.
Peter DeHaan walks the line between tired Christian clichés you’ve read too often and explicit content you’d just as soon never read again.
The result is books with too much of an edge for Christian publishers but too spiritual for the general market.
This is where the YA fiction of Peter DeHaan fits in—or more correctly, where it doesn’t.
Want gripping stories with strong female characters—girls you want to be and who the guys want to be with? Read about real issues you and your friends face every day? Plus a bit more? Then look no further.
Of course, you don’t want to gag on simple solutions to complex problems, either. No worries. Not going to happen here. We’ll skip the stuff that’s too slick and totally lame. For reals.
Check out the girl-powered YA fiction in Peter’s upcoming series, Ice Creamed.
Meet Brianna, the dashing but shy Nicky, and her growing list of friends—and enemies.
Here’s how it starts:
Brianna Turner had known Nicholas Brower since kindergarten, and ever since fourth grade she dreamed of knowing him better. She fantasized about their first date, planned their wedding, and picked names for their two kids, but she wasn’t sure if he even knew who she was.
Maybe the first step should be talking, but so far, he had never said one word to her. Not one. Love sucks.
Then a fatal car accident threatens to ruin it all, squashing the hope for romance before it could even sprout. Will Brianna find true love, or will her secret crush end up behind bars?
