Today I have the great pleasure of introducing you to Silent Fear by, father and son duo, Lance and James Morcan and an awesome giveaway for a paperback copy of the book. Let’s learn a little about the book…
When you can’t hear…death comes silently.
Or in this case, Meet the Authors!
New Zealand novelist, screenwriter and film producer Lance Morcan is a prolific writer with various published books and released movies to his credit.
Lance’s novels include the top rating historical adventures INTO THE AMERICAS and WHITE SPIRIT (both based on true stories); the international thriller series THE ORPHAN TRILOGY (The Ninth Orphan / The Orphan Factory / The Orphan Uprising) and the historical adventure series THE WORLD DUOLOGY (World Odyssey / Fiji: A Novel).
These novels were co-written with his son James Morcan and published by Sterling Gate Books.
Their next book, SILENT FEAR (A novel inspired by true crimes), is scheduled for release in the final Quarter of 2017.
Morcan Motion Pictures (their production company) is developing SILENT FEAR and several other Morcan novels into feature films.
The Morcans’ first non-fiction title, THE ORPHAN CONSPIRACIES, was followed by THE UNDERGROUND KNOWLEDGE SERIES of books, which include GENIUS INTELLIGENCE, ANTIGRAVITY PROPULSION, MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX, THE CATCHER IN THE RYE ENIGMA and INTERNATIONAL BANKSTER$.
They also co-authored DEBUNKING HOLOCAUST DENIAL THEORIES – a book they felt compelled to write to draw attention to the alarming global rise of anti-Semitism.
To date, 24 foreign rights agreements have been secured for the translation of their books into Arabic, German, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Italian, Afrikaans, Norwegian and Dutch with more contracts pending. These are available across a wide number of book retailers internationally including Amazon, iBooks (Apple), Google Play, Kobo, Nook, Scribd, Nook, Overdrive, Chegg, 3M, axis360 (Baker & Taylor) & Follett.
A former journalist and newspaper editor, Lance divides his time these days between novel writing, film producing and screenwriting. Numerous screenplays he has written are in active development as movies and as a producer his feature films have screened at cinemas in Australia, Italy and Cannes.
Lance is currently perfecting his solo-written NEW ZEALAND – an epic adventure novel covering 500 years of South Pacific and Polynesian history. Including research, writing (and life’s distractions!), this novel has been over a decade in the making.
James’ most recent acting performance was a leading role in the post-Apocalyptic feature film ‘After Armageddon’ which he also wrote. The dystopian adventure film was shot in rural Australia in early 2015 and Morcan co-starred with Berynn Schwerdt (‘Wyrmwood’).
Other recent leading roles include the OZ-Bollywood productions ‘My Cornerstone’ and ‘Love You Krishna’. Morcan also wrote the screenplays for both features which were filmed in Sydney and Mumbai and incorporated English and Hindi languages.
Additional productions he has perfromed in include a BBC TV series, several indie features and a live stadium production of Ben Hur headlined by Academy Award winner Russell Crowe. To date, his feature films have screened at cinemas in New Zealand, India, Australia, Italy and Cannes.
