Production of DERRICK DAVIS's novel originally began all the way back in 2014 with the ambitious goal to not only write a novel but to make it an immersive experience with impressive illustrations and even an orchestral music soundtrack to accompany it. It was inspired by science fiction films, adventure stories, urban exploration, and the Southern California desert.


The author's draft has been completed as of 2021 and has been sent out to agents for publishing. Almost all of the artwork and music has also been completed, save for a few additional desired items.
