I haven’t updated much of anything in some time, so I figure it’s about time. I have decided to venture off from my usual apocalypse genre and into the military/political thriller realm. I’ve had the story in mind for quite some time, but the Covid pandemic provided the right catalyst to cement the tale in my head into action. It was a daunting project to say the least as I haven’t been in the military for some time and technology has long-passed the knowledge I had. Of course, a lot of things have pushed my knowledge out. I swear some days that I’m only a step away from fading into a complete loss of memory. But, that’s for another day…maybe.
So, this new writing is going to be a two-book series. The first one is already out in eBook and print editions with the narration nearly completed. It’s been a fun ride so far, but the days of research have been long. I hope those who have already read the first book are enjoying the story so far. As with many of the other stories I’ve told, I was quite worried how this one would be received. Especially as there are certain insinuations which some may not appreciate. But, this is just a fictional tale without inclusion of any personal agenda or beliefs. For me, it’s just a fun tale to write and my wish is that it’s taken in that context. So far, the reviews have been favorable, so thank you for that. If you’re on the fence about reading it, let me give you that little nudge to tip toward the side to go get a copy.
With regards to my writing world, I’m nearly two-thirds of the way through writing the rough draft of the second book in the series. Once that is off into editing, providing the tale doesn’t take a third book to tell, then I’ll be getting back into the world of Jack and company. Now, I don’t know yet whether that will take the form of Red Team or whether I’ll finally dive back into A New World. I’m kind of feeling the characters in that universe pulling at me as they’ve been stuck in limbo for some time. And, with the conclusion of A Shrouded World, I can entertain the thought of A New World once again.
Well, that’s about it for now. I hope you all remain safe and healthy and thank you all for your tremendous support.
