I’m trying something new. I added this blog to my site. All the content on this blog is from my webpage. My site is only a month old and its my first so I’m trying out different things. I’m just starting to understand how to program HTML and now i’m moving to WordPress for this blog, because it seems much easier to update and control. Any suggestions are appreciated, Thanks Kevin. www.kevinscrate.com
Hello everybody, I”m really loving this new theme. If you don’t like my background click the small pictures at the top and change it.
Podcast of the Week. 2-3-07
7th Son is the story of seven strangers who have been brought together after the recent assassination of the U.S. president. These men quickly discover they all appear to be the same man … with identical childhood memories.
Unwitting participants in a human cloning experiment, these “John Michael Smiths” have been assembled to catch the man who murdered the president. Their target? The man they were cloned from; the original John Michael Smith, code-named John Alpha.
Three weeks ago, the U.S. president was murdered by a four-year-old boy.
Today, seven men stare at each other in a locked conference room. Kidnapped and brought to this underground facility, the strangers are sitting in silence, thunderstruck. Despite minor physical differences, they all appear to be the same man, with the same name … and the same childhood memories.
Unwitting participants in a secret human cloning experiment, these seven “John Michael Smiths” have been gathered by their creators for one reason — to capture the mastermind behind the president’s assassination.
Their target? The man they were cloned from; the original John Michael Smith, code-named John Alpha.
Soon our heroes — John, Jack, Michael, Kilroy2.0 and the others — realize the president’s murder was merely a prologue to Alpha’s plans. As the mystery deepens and the implications of Alpha’s scheme are slowly revealed, the clones decide to stand against John Alpha. The outcome will unearth a conspiracy larger than they could have ever imagined.
Descent is the first novel in J.C. Hutchins’ 7th Son thriller trilogy. Website http://www.jchutchins.net/7Son/Home/Home.html
