Author Update

This One

Well, after too many months of agonizing, editing, re-writing, re-editing, and discouragement-fighting, the manuscript for ‘To Watch me Burn’ has been ‘finalized’*. The release date is set for the first week in October, when it will be available exclusively on amazon in e-book and paperback. Keep a wary eye for more news and updates on promotional weekends and fun things like that. Here’s a slightly more detailed description than the last… enjoy =)

Life is simple on the island nation of Melior: the just are rewarded for their good deeds, while the criminals are branded for their failings and sent to live outside the proud city’s walls.

In the midst of this society that emphasizes worth via achievement, Merritt’s sole aim in life is to earn value. When he discovers that his domineering mother has been lying to him, he leaves the city to find out for himself the truth of the Branded community. It is there, among the untouchables, that he finally begins to feel a sense of belonging.

But this acceptance comes at a terrible price. When false accusations leave Merritt guilty in the eyes of the law, he must set out to reinvent his identity and answer the question: Can a man be worth more than his actions?


*Until such time as I happen to read it again and decide to change everything.


About Leah Ness

I am a self-professed story addict. Ever since I was little, I've had an overactive imagination and a passion for a well-spun yarn. When I grew up, I was blessed with a passion for God as well. It was then that I noticed a relative shortage of unique Christian fiction, the kind that can both captivate you and glorify God. So, despite the hurdles of things like commas and homonyms, I am endeavoring to write some of my own. Check out my Books page for updates on current and future books. View all posts by Leah Ness
