Attack of the Silver Empire

I am sorry to say that The Pius Trilogy-- all five books-- will only be available for the next two weeks. A Pius Man: A Holy Thriller, A Pius Legacy: A Political Thriller, A Pius Stand: A Global Thriller, Pius Tales, and Pius History, will all be gone.

That's right, on November 18th, only three days before Set to Kill hits the stands, The Pius Trilogy will disappear from Amazon...

But not forever.

You might recall Russell Newquist, the fellow who hosted my little author gladiatorial matches with Brian Niemeier.

Did I mention he has a publishing company called Silver Empire?

As of last week, I am now officially signed with Silver Empire publishing, who will take on all of The Pius Trilogy, including the additional works, Pius Tales and Pius History.

Silver Empire will take it all.

They're even getting me new covers. Also by Dawn Witzke.

Nice, right?

As Silver Empire itself has put it...


Declan Finn, Dragon Award nominated author of Honor at Stake, signs deal with Silver Empire

HARVEST, Ala. (November 7, 2016) – From vampire horror to satire to science fiction, Declan Finn's imagination has brought no end of excitement to life for his readers. Now the noteworthy Dragon Award nominated author of Honor at Stake is teaming with Silver Empire Publishing to bring his thriller series, The Pius Trilogy, to new readers. The five book deal includes the original Pius Trilogy - A Pius Man, A Pius Legacy, and A Pius Stand. It also includes Pius Tales, a collection of short stories feature characters from the Pius Trilogy, and Pius History, a non-fiction account of the actual history behind the series.

A political and religious thriller in the vein of a more historically accurate Dan Brown, A Pius Man takes readers on an action packed romp through the innards of Rome and the Vatican. The tale follows the adventures of Sean A.P. Ryan - stuntman, martial artist, security consultant, and all around badass - and Scott "Mossad" Murphy, among others, as they unravel a conspiracy designed to undermine the new pope and even bring down the Catholic Church itself.

“We're really excited to add the Pius Trilogy to our lineup,” said Russell Newquist, owner of Silver Empire Publishing. “Fans will love Declan Finn's masterful suspense thriller. Most of all, the subject matter is a perfect fit for Silver Empire.”

Declan Finn lives in a part of New York City unreachable by bus or subway. Who's Who has no record of him, his family, or his education. You can find his ramblings over at The Catholic Geeks and his rantings on writing at But to hear him really rant and rave, check out his interview show at The Catholic Geek podcast, over at Blog Talk Radio.

A Pius Man will continue to be available in its current paperback and e-book formats on through November 18, 2016. New editions will be released soon by Silver Empire. If you would like your copy autographed or would like to purchase an autographed copy in person, contact Declan Finn at to make arrangements. For more information, visit
