The Faith of Fire

Faith is tested as a family is torn by a tragic fiery accident that takes Lizbeth. With the loss of wife and mother, Paul and Cara struggle to deal with their grief. Paul, a professed Agnostic, channels his grief to his company, leaving 14-year-old Cara to deal with hers alone. Nana Beth, a prayerful grandmother, believes that God has a plan to heal their hearts. When cunning Mya moves in and removes all traces of Lizbeth, Cara’s anger opens Paul’s eyes to his error. A trip to a rustic, remote cabin in the Sierra Nevada mountains to rebuild their relationship begins a harrowing adventure. A forest fire, a lost dog named Rudy, the faithful vision of a search and rescue volunteer, the prayers of the faithful, and the acceptance of God bring joy back to a grieving family.

Beyond the Barrier

Having finally reached the stars, humanity finds that we are fenced in by an unknown technology. At 22 light-years across, the area cordoned off by the mysterious Pylons is hardly small, though humanity loves to push boundaries. Enter the Dust Bus, a prospector ship cruising between stations when an inert, seemingly deactivated Pylon is discovered. What happens next throws all of human space into a panic and sends ripples across a galactic civilization spanning millions of years and near as many worlds.

Working collaboratively on a novel not your thing? Are you a writer looking for assistance outlining and developing your novel’s plot? Have a book completely written and you’re struggling to figure out publishing and marketing?  We’ve got you covered.

It doesn’t matter where in the process you are stuck.  Next Chapters can help you break through and finish your story.

Community Novels

Want to be a published author, but just don’t have the motivation to write an entire book on your own right now?  We have you covered.

Next Chapters’ authors can participate in our crowdsourced novels, where writers add their own chapters to works in progress and are open for anyone to contribute.

Log into our writer’s platform and see what books are in progress already, you may find one you’re excited about adding your own voice to, as is continues on to completion!

And best of all, an author writing chapters contained in any of our crowdsourced novels shares in the profits if the book makes money!

Come write with us!  Plus it’s free!

Group Novels

Interested in writing a book with your closest friends? Or your book club, RPG gaming group or for a class?  Maybe community-novels aren’t your thing and you’d rather know the others working on the same book as you.

We’ve got you covered. Next Chapters’ platform novels can be written by a specific group of writers instead of available to anyone on the site to add the next chapter.  And all the tools available for crowdsourced books are still at your hands so we can help you write and complete your novel.

Get your friends together and sign up for a free Next Chapters account to get started!

Personal Novels

We definitely get it, some people don’t want to group up and write a book with others. They’re motivated by writing their own story, not sharing the burden and the credit on a well-written book.

Not a problem at all! Next Chapters fully supports individuals wanting to write their own story – and our tools are available to help solo novelists write and complete their own book.

It doesn’t matter where in the process you might be stuck.  Next Chapters can help you break through and write and complete your story.
