More About the Author

Jay has a BS in Music business with emphasis in publishing and copyright law, an English degree that he never intended getting, and a music education degree to which he will forever embrace.

Jay spent a year studying for the LSAT, then decided to attend culinary school, hoping to become an aspiring chef in a five star restaurant, but didn't care for the fourteen hour days in a kitchen. So what did he do? Met his wife in college, got married, and after hearing the news of their first child, decided to skip the idea of attending law school. It was the best choice he ever made.

Jay spent his years in Nashville working in the music industry for companies like RCA, Sony, Zomba, and Dreamworks, all of which gave him a bitter taste in his mouth. Aside from working directly with many famous artists, his conclusion of the industry was a tainted cesspool of filth. From Austin, Texas to Nashville, Tennessee, Jay worked a small time in the film industry, as a PA, extra in a few films, and a various of other uninspiring, uneventful jobs. He dedicated his carpentry skills for a while creating custom fine furniture, manned a press for a print shop, was a studio musician, played drums for a few famous artists, taught high school band for a year, giving IT support for the Texas Legislature, and now an aspiring author. He has no claim to fame, nor does he want any.

Jay has been fortunate enough to experience many things in his life, some of which were humbling, others fulfilling, and because of that, he's grown to be patient and content. He's willing to struggle, fail, sacrifice, and fall before he learns to move on from those experiences. He's not afraid to die, but willing to live as long as he's able. Even though he'd like to see his kids grow old, Jay understands that every day is precious, yet uncertain. He live with the best intentions that everything is going to be okay until it isn't, and when that happens, He's free to just let go.

J.E. Plemons' "Last Light Falling: The Covenant" is a contemporary fiction novel about fifteen-year-old twins who have been destined to change the world. Other than the loss of their parents, Arena and Gabriel Power lead relatively normal lives with the same concern as other teens. When their fifteenth birthday arrives, they are most worried about high school starting soon. But they don't realize that they are to receive a letter and key that will send them on a journey toward their destiny, entailing preparing the world for its final days. I really enjoyed this book from start to finish. It has many elements that are in the dystopian YA books that are popular today, but it has a fresh feel to it. The two main characters work well as protagonists, and their unique personalities (one is sassy, one is geeky) make following them on their journey very engaging. The plot of the book starts at a moderate pace, but really gets going about a third of the way through the book. The writing in this book is top-notch -- descriptive, emotional, and compelling. I feel as though I felt everything Plemons wanted me to feel. Even his descriptions of day-to-day activities, such as sibling interactions, are spot-on. Overall, this is a darn good read that will make any fiction fan want more. Can't wait to read the next in the series!

As a life-time reader you go through a great number of books, even from a very early age. Over the years you start to develop unique tastes and cravings that not every author can provide. You also learn many common threads (some people call them tropes or clichés) that the vast majority of authors repeat. And then... then you have books like this one, that surpass your every expectation.

Set in a (sort of) post-apocalyptic setting in the United States of America, J.E. Plemons has crafted one of those rare treats, a novel that defies (and defines) an entire genre. Right from the start the author is able to sink their hooks into you and never let go for the entire wild ride. I found myself reading well into the twilight hours turning page after page, I couldn't put it down.

Arena and her twin brother, Gabe, are fascinating characters that feel like real people. Their struggles in this fictional world are breath-taking and haunting; I had to physically remind myself to breath sometimes. I could not help but get heavily invested in these characters and their strangely familiar, yet alien world.

The future depicted here is both simultaneously terrifying, yet beautiful in its own way. The author has obviously done their research on American history and is familiar with that old adage of "Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it". The story also plays with fate, destiny, and heritage, asking us to think about who we really are, and where we choose to go. Is this set in stone? Can it be changed?

They say you can feel an author's passion in their works and I felt it here in spades. J.E. Plemons felt very strongly about this book and everything inside it.

What an incredibly fascinating yet touching story this is!

Last Light Falling opens on the fifteenth birthday of twins, Arena and Gabe Powers, whose parents were killed in a tragic car crash six years previous. Although still trying to accept the passing of their parents, the story is told through the voice of Arena. We find out early that the twins first lived with their Mother’s sister until she had a nervous breakdown. After a year in the system, they were then taken in by a couple who had tragically lost their fifteen year old daughter – by way of being “collateral damage resulting from a gang dispute”. Since the twins were home schooled in their early childhood, it wasn't until they attended public school in second grade that they learned how poor they were and what it meant. Growing up, Arena’s Uncle Finnegan had taught Arena self-sufficiency, including the art of warfare and how to be invisible to the enemy. This is just the beginning of the unfolding of an incredible story that takes place in the year 2053. What I found so fascinating about this apocalyptic story is how real to life it just may be due to events such as a crashed US economy among other concerns of current day.

The details included in so many different events takes incredible research or a very expansive background on the author’s part. Due to the brilliant realistic events that unfold, this story has a tendency of staying in your mind long after you finish it, which is a good thing.

I highly recommend this book to all. I am blown away with the level of insight and intelligence to be able to write such a highly sophisticated unfolding of what very well could be, actual events.

Some books tell stories that stay with you, and become an allegory for parts of your life, this is one of those books you'll find yourself thinking back on with the courage and strength shown by the main character Arena. The year is 2053, and things just aren't the way they used to be. Post-Apocalyptic stories are becoming more and more popular these days, and this one will ultimately stand out as one of the best. It's a story of faith, love and survival that will leave you reeling at the end, without ever letting up on the pace from beginning to start.

"That moment when you finish a book, close the cover, and look around, realizing that the people around you have no idea you've just had a Significant Emotional Event at the hands of a paperback."
