I’m sorry for the long radio silence. I’ve been without internet for about ten days, should be fixed soon.
My friend Jason has recently self-published a novel The Flight of Collin Honorfell. You can find it here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DR5IABG. The novel tells the tale of the titular character who has had his natural heart replaced by a clockwork one. He is forced to flee by rough men seeking the creator of his heart, sending him on a journey not only to find the key needed to rewind his ever-slowing heart, but to reawaken a legendary order that once protected the land.
