I don’t know why I even create a plot line for these books.  I spent a bit of the weekend and a lot of yesterday creating the plot line for Sanctuary.  Again, I don’t even know why I do that as the book seems to speed away without my control once I start.  I sat the past few days and plotted out the this and then that thing.  As with the previous books in the series, those items I come up with disappear or happen entirely different than when I sit and go through the book outline from a mind perspective.  It’s like someone else is writing and I am only the conduit for them.

Okay, maybe it is just me and amazed at the flow the books take as I begin writing them.  I have to have those outlines before I become comfortable sitting down at they keyboard but, once I do start pounding away, the story leaps out.  I am taking a small break in the writing to type out this blog.  The story sits waiting patiently, well, perhaps not so patiently, on a tab at the bottom of my screen.  This last hour since starting the third book in the series has seen the first 1,200 words flow onto the paper/screen.  it is calling and begging for more.

Yikes, maybe I need either more or less caffeine.  I am still startled and amazed by the response for the first two books.  I want to thank you so much for the wonderful support you have given.  It has taken off beyond my wildest dreams.  I could never have imagined such a favorable nor large response.  This may sound like a huge cliche, but, it is for you, the readers, that I am writing.  I want to share this story running through my head.  Feel free to drop by and leave a message or say hi, either on here, the amazon pages, or FB.

I wish everyone a happy Tuesday and hope all is well!

  1. Hi John,

    When I began reading this series I immediately became glued to the pages. Too many books involving the military are so inaccurate from the training one goes through as well as but not limited to weapons, tactics, vehicles, aircrafts but most of all the Survive, Evade, Resist, Escape skills we are taught in SERE trainin (I was actually Air Force TACP). I love the series and look forward to the next one

    1. Hi Michael,

      I am really glad you enjoyed them and agree with your statements regarding some inaccuracies in some books I’ve read. I went through SERE as well (not to mention the lovely POW scenario 3 times – not fun!) Pretty cool being a TACP – nice job! Always nice to meet another vet – Happy Veteran’s Day belated – and appreciate you service. I’ll have the next one out within the month. I hope you’re having a great day Michael and if you wouldn’t mind dropping by Amazon and leaving a review on each book, I would greatly appreciate it. Enjoy your Monday!

  2. i really enjoyed both of the books that you have published recently, as a fan and aspiring operative and post-apocalyptic scenario fan; these books were a very enjoyable read!
    thanks and i cant wait for the next one!

    1. Mathew,

      Thank you and I’m so glad to know you enjoyed them. Aspiring operative eh!? I happen to enjoy the PA scenario quite a bit as well. There are so many out scenarios to choose from. I hope you have a great weekend! If you wouldn’t mind leaving a review on Amazon for each of the books, it would be greatly appreciated. Again, thank you and feel free to keep in contact!
