ARSON is the first book in a Young Adult Paranormal series. Book two, ASHES, is also available now.
ARSON GABLE FEELS LIKE A FREAK. HE CAN CREATE FIRE. HE NEVER ASKED FOR IT. HE NEVER WANTED IT. BUT HE CAN’T SHUT IT OFF.
Before now, three things were true: he both loved and despised his grandmother; his life was going nowhere; and he was alone. But when a strange girl–who feels more normal behind a mask than inside her own skin–moves in next door, Arson hopes to find something he’s never had: purpose. After years of living in fear, he will be forced to confront his haunting past and embrace the unknown as he walks the fine line between boy and monster. Edgy, realistic, and breathtaking, Arson, the chilling chronicle of an isolated teenager with unimaginable ability, is set to ignite the hearts and minds of a new generation.
Some kids want to be a rockstar. Some kids want to be rich and famous. Some aspire to be a Hollywood celebrity. Okay, okay, let’s be real…any of those would be awesome. But how many kids want to be a writer? The number tends to shrink a bit, right? Well, for Estevan Vega, who began writing passionately in the 5th grade, writing became the only destination.
Spending most of his childhood infatuated with comic book characters and creepy movies, he began sketching some of his most beloved characters. Art naturally captivated him. But his desire to one day join the ranks of the artists at Marvel or Disney got hugely overshadowed by an even bigger and possibly crazier ambition: writing. His dad is mostly to blame. After all, it was his idea to pull him away from the television one night when he urged, oh, so poetically, for his reluctant son to shut his eyes for a moment and imagine a new world full of exciting possibilities. The rest is history.
By the age of 15, Vega had published his first novel,Servant of the Realm. His second novel, The Sacred Sin, followed three years later. But when he was 17, he began a very different kind of novel, his most raw and personal and emotional novel to date, ARSON. The story centered around an isolated boy from CT with unimaginable ability: he could start fires with his mind. Oh, and he meets this really dysfunctional and awesome chick named Emery Phoenix who only feels normal when she wears a mask.
Spending much of the last year touring and polishing the sequel, Estevan Vega has grown to appreciate the journey of writing, much like the often tumultuous journey of life. The fuel to keep writing stems back to Vega’s notion that there’s always something not right in this world, something dark and in desperate need of light. It is this fire, this passion, this permanent struggle that is at the heart of his works. ASHES was just unleashed in eBook format and trade paperback. For those just joining, this is book 2 in the Arson series, and be warned, it takes Arson up a few notches.
Also available is a collection of short stories titled When Colors Bleed. Look for it as a whole collection or feel free to purchase the stories individually. Every story has to do with human nature and the colors that blend within the human heart.
In addition to writing, Estevan Vega watches way too many movies, loves going to concerts, spending way too much time on Twitter, and yes…he’s eagerly anticipating that movie deal. C’mon, Hollywood…whenever…
