Book 1
An Apocalyptic Proposition

Grave robbing requires a corpse, so at most,
this was all just simple thievery.

Rhamuel and the last of his family, Abranyah, travel their barren world, shack to shack, selling tinctures to keep a full belly and evading the dogmatists to keep their throats safe. Time turned funny after The Whatever, an apocalyptic event that few remember and even fewer can explain, danger now as commonplace as the unrecognizable relics of war, and the madman Aphulan - along with an iron rule over his small township - may hold the answers. With a cure for The Sick and a duty to protect their family, Rhamuel and Abranyah set off on a journey to the "other place," the days before The Whatever, and ready themselves for a glimpse into what happened, and what was always meant to happen next.

Book 2
And The Devil Pulls Six-Guns

Truth found little purchase in a barren sown with lies,
and this went doubly so for the Devil.

After the events in the Shimmer Town, Abranyah and her family are left with more responsibility than she believes they can handle - both in her time, as it is, and in the "other place." As the rebuild continues, cryptic clues of a time before hers - a time before The Whatever - have started appearing in Abranyah's life. Truly the only thing certain, in times as they are, is uncertainty. A mysterious figure known as The Lazaran begins to influence events in the barren, The Warrant ushers more and more of the populace under their wing, and a wanted man known as "Devil" makes Abranyah an intriguing proposition. Will her decisions affect life before The Whatever? Will she discover the secret to the blackness? Or, will her choices lead to war?

Matthew D. Jordan

Tincture is an ongoing “weird-west" science fiction adventure story available via iTunes, Podiobooks.com, and for the Amazon Kindle. When active, the story grows roughly every two weeks, and new chapters can be read or listened to, narrated by the author.  To date, two books of the Tincture trilogy have been completed.

Matthew lives in Washington with his wife and son (Mikayla and Atlas), where they are kept company by an overly sensitive Pug named Herman.  Matthew is fond of salty breakfasts, pipe tobacco, ranch dressing — and as a habitual introvert — he believes short pants and the sunshine are to be enjoyed by those of lesser character.

You can reach Matthew via email at: channelwood (at) gmail.com

Matthew wrote this in the third person.
