As a young man in Law School, Marcus Richardson might have imagined his future writing contracts, defending clients and compelling juries and judges in a courtroom. However, he actually ended up writing novels, creating conversation online and captivating readers with his addictive dystopian fiction stories!
His literary works include several book series with an array of diverse, fascinating characters and fight or flight situations that will have you on the edge of your seat at every sentence! The best part is that free excerpts and even full copies of his books can be found on his website, social media and Amazon!
Here’s one from his popular series, “Solar Storm”:
“Fear slinked its icy fingers around his spine and squeezed. He was out in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by empty fields and a few scattered trees. If he’d broke down–if he’d been seriously injured…how long would it take before someone found him? Without cell phones and instant communications, he was cut off from the rest of the world. In that light, the whistling wind didn’t sound so comforting any more.
It sounded lonely, like it mourned the lost world as much as he did. Out of habit, he felt for the reassuring weight of his cell phone in his pocket, then frowned. Now it was just an expensive paperweight. In the blink of an eye, the entire modern world around him woke up in the pre-industrial 1800s. It wasn’t fair, it wasn’t right, but there wasn’t a damn thing anyone could do about it.
And now he was a murderer. Jay leaned over against his car and rested his forehead against cool, unyielding metal. What the hell is going on?”
Undoubtedly gifted, his books are praised by fans and critics alike! However, there is something else that stands out about The Marcus Richardson brand that should be noted.
His online presence and consistent communication with fans is great! With weekly social media discussions such as his “Movie Monday” segment where they discuss relevant movies of similar genres and his “What If” Wednesday segment where they have debates about hypothetical but fairly possible world changes, he keeps an active voice online. His accessibility is appreciated by fans with many of them noting how they appreciate the content he posts, humanizing his brand as an author, and adding a layer of relatability for readers!
