My dream was to sell a book. We did.

My heart is full and my life is good. Solaris officially announced that my book, EVERY MOUNTAIN MADE LOW, will debut in 2016.

Featuring Pullman-esque world building and set in a future Alabama city known as ‘The Hole,’ Every Mountain Made Low tells the story of Loxley, a young autistic woman whose family have the ability to see the restless dead. But for Loxley, the spirits of the deceased can see her back; they’re drawn to her like a bright fire, and their lightest touch leaves her with painful wounds. She avoids them as best she can, but she can’t say no to the spectre of Nora, her only friend, who was alive just hours ago. Swearing to take blood for blood and find her friend’s killer, she finds herself drawn into a conspiracy that will see her hunted down by the brutal enforcer of the corporate interests who reign over the hellish city.

For every GEARHEART fan who wondered what happened to my writing career, there’s the answer. I thank you all for graciously sticking with me on my journey.

For all of my friends who read my stories and gave encouraging words, thank you. For my agent, who exhibited many forms of genius during this sale, thank you.

Most of all, thanks to my wife and parents for taking care of me during my writing career. We’re at the beginning, but I’m sure I’ll impose on you again soon!

  1. Congratulations, Alex! You’ve tried for a long time and I’m glad to see that, finally, you’re receiving a well-deserved dividend. Best of luck with the future!

  2. Congratulations to our wonderful, very talented son! We are looking forward to seeing your book in print. It’s a great story and a great read. We are looking forward to many more terrific books in the future!

  3. I randomly googled “Alex White” hoping to find out I can read more from the enthusiastic author of Gearheart, a podcast novel I thoroughly enjoyed seemingly 1000 years ago. The article in question pops up and read I’m gonna have to wait until 2016….. But still! Congratulations Alex I can’t wait for this new book.

    1. Brent, I could not be prouder after what you just said. When The Gearheart went off the air, I was afraid I was on a fool’s errand. I’m happy to report I wasn’t.

      It’ll be awhile (2016) before you can buy the book. I’d like to indulge your patience a little while longer…
