RICHMOND, VA / ACCESSWIRE / March 2, 2020 / J.B. Lion pushes self-publishing to its limits by launching a dual-version five-book series titled The Seventh Spark. For each book in the series, there is a standard text-only version and a graphic novel that mixes intricate illustrations alongside text. "It gives me satisfaction to know that a reader has finished reading my book from cover to cover.", says Lion, who goes on to explain his decision to create a dual-version. The dual-version is meant to enhance the reading experience, reducing the chance that a reader stops reading halfway."
Lion drew inspiration for The Seventh Spark series from a game invented by his two sons, which centers around three different societies as they attempt to outmaneuver one another for control of the universe. The Seventh Spark is the culmination of over 15 years of work, and he credits his family for helping to launch his career as a writer.
In 2018, Lion initially released a book titled The Wall: Guardian's Redemption. In this release, readers follow Joey Gunns, an ex-U.N. Special Forces mercenary as he reluctantly accepts an assignment to work for the President of the United States. After a series of unexpected mishaps, Gunns is forced to choose between his friends, his conscience, and his ambitions.
The Wall gained highly positive reviews from its readers. Artisan Book Reviews describes The Wall: Guardian's Redemption as a "must-read graphic novella" that will appeal to readers of paranormal fiction. It was this positive feedback and strong demand from its readers that led to Lion re-publishing The Wall, and extending it into five-book series.
The Seventh Spark series is about a parallel universe where the physical and spiritual realms intertwine and interact on a daily basis; each having influence and impact on the other. Each book in the series is written from a character's perspective, and there are a total of five perspectives to highlight how a single event can impact multiple parties in very different ways. The series details how an unlikely partnership forms to plunge the 12 realms of man into darkness and bring upon their ultimate judgement.
Lion, who cites Stephen King, J.R.R.Tolkien and George R. R. Martin as his influences, hopes that the graphic novel version will attract comic book fans and inspire more men to read. As an author of color, J. B. Lion jokes that he could be described as "Black Gandalf" because he is always thinking of new stories and conjuring adventures for his characters.
The Seventh Spark is a rip-roaring paranormal fantasy thriller full of intrigue, suspense, intriguing dialogue, plot twists, and elements of horror. Pre-order today at https://www.jblion.com/introducing-the-hybrid-novel
