Force Interdiction Prologue

Force Interdiction Releases in 1 MONTH!

I am very happy to announce that Arklight: Force Interdiction is complete and will release August 13th, 2018! This second installment of the Arklight series will delve much deeper into the mysterious world of the Knights Templar and the origins of Arklight itself. The cover art was laid out to give you a few clues about the content and characters. I’m very proud of this installment, and I think the plot twists should keep anyone entertained.

Prepare to find out more about the coin given to Captain John Steadman by Ensign John Bell. Who translated the binary code on the Adam panel of the Ghent Altarpiece? What is the ultimate weapon and why was it created? What really happened during the Alsos Missions? So much to cover and don’t forget that the Storm on the Sea of Galilee is still up for grabs. What’s the significance? I can’t wait to share the next set of clues!

In preparation for the release on Force Interdiction, I’ll be offering Arklight: Operation Nightfall free to all kindle users on August 10th -12th and it’s always free on Kindle Unlimited! The ARCs are going out today, so thanks to the readers!

Happy Independence Day!!

I heard a wonderful rendition of this song recently. If you apply the context of the lyrics, written by Julia Ward Howe in 1861, as she looked over the thousands of federal troops about to deploy for the American Civil War, it has a very deep meaning. While the Civil War represented a terrible time in our history, it also represents the fact that our republic is worth fighting for at all costs. Have a safe and most excellent 4th of July!

The Battle Hymn Of The Republic

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored,
He has loosed the fateful lightening of His terrible swift sword
His truth is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps
I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps
His day is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

I have read a fiery gospel writ in burnish`d rows of steel,
“As ye deal with my contemners, So with you my grace shall deal;”
Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with his heel
Since God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment-seat
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! be jubilant, my feet!
Our God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me:
As He died to make men holy, let us live to make men free,
While God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

Latest Review

Some books, especially those written by well-known authors, get hundreds, even thousands of reviews online. Getting started can be tough, and getting feedback can be even tougher. However, for new writers this interaction with the average reader, professional reviewers, and even staunch critics is imperative to the process. We feed off of every review and use them for guidance, motivation, and even future story-line input. Personally, I read every review and find something useful in all of them.

This lastest review came from Lindsay Merkel ,a professional reviewer, and I was floored after reading it. She wrote that she believed if it needed a comparison, “then think a Tom Clancy – Indiana Jones crossover with religious themes.” To get compared to my favorite author of all-time and a movie franchise created by George Lucas is high-praise if you ask me. She described Arklight as: “Brilliant” – “Distinctive” – “Unique” – “Impressive”. This was a great review and I pulled some strong motivation out of it as I sit down today to continue writing Task Force Crusader (Half way done with the initial!). Thanks to everyone who has provided feedback for this book series. Look for FORCE INTERDICTION to release August 13th, 2018!

 

Arklight: Force Interdiction – “The Blurb”

Fight for yesterday… Hope for tomorrow…  

The ancient Order of the Knights Templar hid pieces of Arma Christi all over the Earth, staving off disaster in their time. The locations to these weapons were documented in a cryptic journal, which remained a closely guarded secret for hundreds of years. In Operation Nightfall, Arklight’s Spear Team discovered the existence of the journal, and an epic mission unfolded, propelling a deadly event horizon. Powerful enemies have since emerged, intent upon bringing about the destruction of all things. The fate of mankind hangs in the balance. Spear Team must undertake a mission to secure a piece of the ultimate weapon, unfolding an incredible truth behind the legend.

Arklight and their predecessors, the Alsos Mission Team, fight an extraordinary battle across time, attempting to gain the advantage against a brutal foe. Paths collide when the history of their missions are shared, uncovering a multitude of secrets that span from the American Civil War, to World War II, and into the modern day. These ancient battlefields have forged a spectacular reality no one could have ever foreseen. A war of souls looms on the horizon; the showdown between good and evil explodes in this second installment of the Arklight series.

GET ARKLIGHT: OPERATION NIGHTFALL NOW!

Nightfall is getting a little attention!

Thanks @bookaddict’sreview for 4-Stars and kind words! She’s one of the top reviewers in the Amazon world and she’s pretty tough to impress. Getting a really good review on my first offering made my day!

A little update on the series seems in order. I’ve started book 3, actually I’m about 30k words into the initial draft. I thought it appropriate to title the offering, Task Force Crusader. It will pick up a few months after Interdiction ends and you won’t believe where Spear Team goes next! Stay tuned for release information and updates.

Thanks to the readers!
