After doing the cover reveal for EMBERS, I’ve been asked a lot lately if I’ll be shifting my focus entirely to speculative novels. Hopefully with my website redesign you can tell that’s not the case. In fact, I can finally share some great news with you! In January, I signed a 3-book, 1-novella contract with Bethany House Publishers. I cannot express my gratitude enough to Dave Long, who championed this series through all the boards and believed in me and this series. It’s an honor to become a BHP author (total geek-out moment here). WOW!

This new series, THE TOX FILES, is a paramilitary adventure with  lead hero, Cole “Tox” Russell. It’s sort of Indiana Jones meets Jason Bourne in a classic Rapid-Fire Fiction novel. This series will touch history and challenge perceptions. Here is the concept blurb from the proposal for THE TOX FILES.

“There are no extraordinary men…
just extraordinary circumstances that ordinary men are forced to deal with.”
~William Halsey, naval war hero

In this series, a paramilitary team led by a former Special Forces operator, who is persona non grata and brother to the current president, is pitted against some of ancient history’s most forbidding artifacts. Each story demands dark secrets be revealed and history unchained to protect not only the team but the lives of innocents. This series will catapult readers into adventures that will challenge their beliefs and knowledge of the world around them!


My dear friends Tosca Lee and Jim Rubart helped brainstorm this series, and Tosca provided this AMAZING endorsement of the first book:

“Everything you want in a book: action, suspense, a ticking time bomb. And at the heart of it all, a real-life ancient artifact and true-to-life conspiracy with the power to rock the foundation of one nation’s political and religious identity. It’s Ronie Kendig, more daring in scope and high-octane than ever. What’s not to love?”  ~~Tosca Lee, New York Times Bestselling Author​

    It really does sound like you’ve taken your stories up another level. Which I honestly didn’t think was possible. Congrats, Ronie! Praying the writing goes well and even better than you’re hoping for. Really, really looking forward to reading them.
