Jay Chalk has joined the Ink Smith Publishing family with his new novel, Sentinel Peak! His previous novel, Revolution 2050, was published with Dancing Lemur Press, a dystopian novel that challenges its characters to decide between staying loyal to what they know, and fighting for freedom.
A long-haul trucker at one time, Jay now lives in East Texas and is a twenty-two year veteran high school teacher of U.S. Government and History. When he’s not teaching, writing, or playing the guitar, he’s flying.
Sentinel Peak is a fast-paced mystery with a legendary origin spanning decades, and space. When an alien reconnaissance spacecraft crash landed in Arizona Territory in 1853, the crash site was only briefly investigated by local tribes. It left the ship, and its survivors to fade into legend.
Fast-forward 100 years later, and Daniel McKntyre finds himself haunted by strange dreams of his great-grandfather and a mysterious place known as Sentinel Peak. While rekindling an old flame with Anna, the mother of his child, the dreams become more vivid. The more time he spends around Anna the more he realizes she may have some connection to his dreams.
As he digs deeper, he finds that Anna’s history is much more expansive than he thought.
Lightyears away, 143 year-old Ason mMyer, commander of the starship freighter Mnaerias, has received a distress signal from the downed starship on earth. Ason recognizes the signal as that of the Halaena, a vessel that had mysteriously disappeared with his father. Ignoring protocol, he decides to take it upon himself to investigate.
As these two move closer together, Dan finds himself caught up in a government investigation and intergalactic mystery that spans decades. He realizes there’s only one thing left for him to do: go with Anna to Sentinel Peak to uncover what’s behind it all.
