I have now officially finished edits on THE WAR BENEATH, and the book is in the hands of ChiZine where it is being prepped for printing. It has been an extraordinary process, and the love and care that is going into this book is difficult to describe. When I first saw the cover, I knew that this was going to be special.  Made by Emblem in Toronto created it, and even produced an animated version for their Instagram account:

First the bulkheads sweat, then there’s a trickle of water, and then in an instant you’re gone. The only thing left is a bloody pulp in the dark water and crushed bone fragments on the seafloor …

Here it is — the book description for my upcoming underwater thriller.

I’ve always been excited by books and films set in this interesting, unique and dangerous environment.  In many ways the undersea world is more hazardous for humans than outer space.  With great depth comes great pressure.  This means that structures face implosion at almost any time.  It also means that more nitrogen and other gases dissolves in our bloodstream and tissues, and this results in The Bends if a character bolts to the surface.  There’s therefore no escape in an emergency.  Characters must solve issues on the spot.

They are prisoners of the deeps.

Throw in the superpowers of the world engaged in a new cold war, cities on the ocean floors, submarine warfare and espionage, love and family and greed and revenge, and it makes for an exciting and action-packed undersea world.  I hope you enjoy it; the book is coming this fall.

Here’s the book’s jacket copy:

The War Beneath by TSJ Cover Revealed

 

Coming this Fall:  THE WAR BENEATH by TIMOTHY S. JOHNSTON

Coming this Fall from ChiZine Publications

I’m thrilled to reveal the cover of this underwater thriller, coming from ChiZine Publications this fall!

It has been a long wait for a new novel since THE VOID, released in March 2015, but I promise it will be worth it.  This new novel is action packed and exciting, and is set in the next frontier — the Earth’s oceans — during a new cold war.  The environment is dangerous but compelling, and the novel takes place at a time when the world’s superpowers are fighting with each other to colonize and exploit the ocean floor.

Here is the cover, below!
