Book 1 of the Legacy Chronicles.

The world desperately needs an infusion of hope. Jacob Hope… This is another gem of an offering from Luke Romyn. Action-packed, intriguing, and sprinkled with much of the author’s trademark humor, Corpus Christi left me anxious to read the next installment. I loved it!” – Eric S

“Well past 3D, Romyn’s imagination can best be described as multi-dimensional. — Claude Bouchard, internationally bestselling author of the Vigilante series.

“Luke’s descriptive passages come with a cadence of their own. My heart beats with the rhythm and my breathing quickens with anticipation of the outcome.” — GreenRaven

Longing to confront such evil but not knowing how, Jake must embark upon a journey not only of destination, but of self-discovery. In his attempts to thwart a fallen angel, Jake must also come to grips with his own part in this almighty drama.

For above it all haunts the legacy, a prophecy of who Jake truly is:

Christ reborn – the new messiah.

Why do I write?

By Luke Romyn on November 29, 2013


It’s a sensation, a gnawing urge I honestly don’t know if I could ever ignore, don’t know if I would if I could. This addiction drives me on when other people might quit, beyond the limits of my sanity, to a place where I finally find some peace.

Writing is not like anything I can adequately describe – an ironic fact regarding I write for a living. It’s like a mechanic saying he’s unable to talk about an engine. But it’s the truth. I started writing one day and things just fit. All the cloudiness of my life washed away with the clicking of a keyboard.

I guess that must be what it feels like to anyone who finds their purpose in life. There’s a certain clarity, a sense that the rest of your life now means something more than it did the day before.  I feel that no matter what hardship befalls me from now until they bury me with my boots on, I’ll be okay. Because the words will always be with me, that release valve for my soul. It brings me tears and joy, releases my tears and my joy, allowing me to create anything I choose, anything I desire. Nothing else matters; this is what I’m here for.

I don’t know if this is the same for all writers. Some that I talk to seem obsessed with making money, others with fame. I’m not sure which I am. I’d like money, sure. But if you’re looking to make money there are much less painful ways of getting it than writing; selling your organs on the black market, for instance. Don’t ever think that writing is a gateway to a fortune. Don’t think of J.K. Rowling or that Twilight chick and imagine you’ll write a book or a series and make millions. You can’t go into this game like that. Be positive, certainly, but not delusional. Go into it with your eyes open. Chances are you’ll sell a few books, hopefully make enough money to buy a Happy Meal, and maybe change a person’s life in some small way. Maybe more than one.

You know, unless you work at it.

And when I say work, I mean work. My entire life now revolves around the business of being a writer. Every day I wake up and think about it, every night I dream about it. Am I obsessed? Definitely. But my obsession doesn’t hurt anyone, and my wife is very tolerant. So I’m happy, or as happy as an obsessed scribbler with a million worlds running through my mind can be. Could be worse much, I could like politics.

So become a writer, if that’s your thing. It’s more than just stringing together a few words and counting your money, but if you’re destined for it, the price doesn’t matter.

The Importance of Genre

By Luke Romyn on June 2, 2013

320711_525516790827268_1347072790_nI am constantly asked about genre, as though it’s a mark of quality, and I find myself wondering about how important such a thing is. Is genre just a title, a category to help us group stories into classes of pre-determined judgment, or is it something more?

Stephen King’s books are widely regarded as horror, but this is also the man who penned such greats as The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile. Neither of those stories would ever be thought of as horror, unless you’re an idiot. He also wrote The Running Man and the somewhat cult-classic Dark Tower series, both possibly classed as science fiction, and yet somewhat not. I mean, if you really delve into any of his novels, there’s a hell of a lot more there than mere horror, and yet everyone seems to think of him as a horror writer.

My first publisher classed The Dark Path as a horror novel, a genre I would have never imagined when I wrote it, and yet it’s gone on to great success from both people who profess to love and those who detest horror. Since taking things into my own hands, I’ve decided to change its categories to action/adventure and thriller, both of which it slots perfectly into, and yet these do not define it. The same goes for my Prometheus Wars series; both books could be classed as anything from mythology to paranormal, but the heart of the books is adventure, and as such that’s how they’re categorized, much to my chagrin. Tiny boxes make for even smaller windows, and when trying to get readers to notice you, you want the biggest damn Plexiglas window in the world.

Genre is a useful tool, but it’s also a double-edged sword. For instance, I know there are hundreds (possibly thousands) of phenomenal books out there I will probably never read simply because they’re classed as romance novels. No matter how gripping a synopsis reads I doubt I’ll dip my toe into a romance on the off chance it slides into a stereotypical estrogen-fuelled sappy-saga.

No offense to romance fans, but I’d rather put my face in a blender than read about heaving bosoms and engorged loins. And yet I know chances are many of those stories classed as romances are brilliant, and in no way limited to what I perceive a stereotypical romance to be. This is my loss, and all because of my prejudging of the genre, much like another reader might see a book classed as horror and expect to be terrified by ghosts and scary clowns.

So is genre good?

Much like pigeonholing people, typecasting books so blindly is ignorant. And yet we need it. There’s no swifter way to identify subject matter other than genre categorization. It draws the reader in to read more about a book they will hopefully like, and until each author reaches the same heights of popularity as the King, we will continue to class our writing in such a way.
