"In the fall of 1993, life seems boring in Lucas County, Georgia. Pop culture, Art, and a beautiful classmate are the only things that sixteen-year-old Sylas Sterling finds interesting.

 In one week, Sylas’ life will be radically transformed. Visions of the past and tragedies in the present will send him down a new path. He will become obsessed with a dark mystery that has been hidden in Lucasville, for so over a century.

Sylas will be tested, as he faces the challenges of confronting the past and of changing the present. Is he ready to face the LUCAS COUNTY CURSE?"

Writing and Planning

I have continued working on the second Sylas Sterling novel. I’ve written about 2,250 words so far. The first book was nearly 49,000, so I’ve got a ways to go. In addition to starting that book, I’ve been brainstorming. So, I’ve also got some general idea of what I want the third book to be able about. If all goes according to plan, I hope to have a comic book available to tie into the third books release. If you have any feedback, I’d take it into consideration while the next book is in progress. One other note in regards to the first book. I made some additional corrections after the initial publication, so if you come across some punctuation errors I think they have mostly been fixed.

Thanks again to the writing community on Twitter. Yesterday, I hit 250 Twitter followers! Thanks everyone. Today, I wrote 633 words. I finished another chapter in my second novel, and I also made a few small additions to my first novel’s third draft. Thanks, J. Allen Tucker

Title Reveal Coming Soon for Second Novel!

Since 2021, I have slowly been working on the sequel novel to Sylas Sterling and the Lucas County Curse.  Recently, I have been making some progress with the book.  I have also been working on a few others things. I have had the name of the second book for quite some time, but I have not revealed it here or via social yet.  I will be announcing the name soon. I am have an update on the design side of the book.  I created the cover for the first book, and I have finally went through several variations for the cover for the second book.  What I have currently may not be the final version, but it is probably close.  I will be doing a cover reveal, once we are a bit closer to the book publication. At the time, I do not have a date set for the publication of the second novel, but I will be updating that on this website, before I post anything on Twitter (X), Instagram, etc. Leave a comment below, if you have any questions. Thanks, J. Allen Tucker
