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!

Cool Review

First off, Happy Mother’s Day to all you ladies out there! Especially to Erin, Sandy, Sheila, Lynn, Joanna, Lauren, Lexie, Erin Grace, and Shelly!

Secondly, the review group “Books and Tea” in Belgium rated Nightfall at 5 stars! That’s pretty cool! Thanks @booksandtealove for reading and I’m getting very close to sharing the release date for Arklight: Force Interdiction! This one will blow your socks off – guaranteed!

Every unknown history has an explanation

Look out Nashville! Book 2 of the Arklight saga will attempt to turn the city on it’s ear. Set in 2017, the team discovers some interesting truths as they relate to Book 1, Operation Nightfall. Things up for grabs; Nashville’s own history, lost gold, the Alsos Missions of WWII, Arma Christi, and the ultimate weapon. How can one book include the Battle of Nashville in 1864, secret missions in 1944 during WWII, and a modern day struggle with the fate of the world hanging in the balance? Arklight: Force Interdiction finds a way!

This story promises a thrill ride you won’t soon forget with remarkable historical characters like Sir Ian Fleming, Ensign John Bell, General John Bell Hood, and Nashville’s own Sarah Estell. Arklight will take the past, forging it into a believable fictional narrative of brotherhood, sacrifice, and teamwork. I hope to start putting in the final edits very soon and can’t wait to put this story out there. I’m a third of the way through the initial writing of Book 3, which will take this series to new heights. Thanks for your support and stay tuned for news on the upcoming releases!

Arklight: Force Interdiction

I’m getting pretty close to having Force Interdiction ready for release. It’s in the final stages of editing and I plan on announcing a release date in the very near future. If you haven’t read Nightfall, book two may get you a little more curious. Force Interdiction will pick up roughly 6 months after the events of Nightfall (Maybe I should say Knightfall – hmmm). The same group of characters return as they tumble even deeper into their true purpose, revealing some eye-popping truths. More Arma Christi is up for grabs, a dangerous foe emerges, and Nashville gets turned upside down in a battle you won’t believe.

I’m happy to say that fiction meets reality with a vengeance in this upcoming installment of the Arklight series. I researched some very interesting history and you won’t believe where it takes the story. Stay tuned for upcoming announcements. Also, let me know what you think of the cover art from my friends at ebook launch. Stay safe!

It’s the small things…

A man stands on the side of the busiest roadway in the state. It’s dark, rainy, and traffic is unrelenting. Car lights flash from the shoulder of the road, people pass him without a second thought. He’s in crisis, because life simply got in the way. A small flashlight illuminates his silhouette as cars continue to miss him, only by a couple of feet.

A car finally stops, edging even closer to the wave of blurry lights and buzzing cars on their way home. It’s parked behind the car with the flashing lights, someone to help. A flash of electric blue catches the night fog, the man immediately knows everything will somehow be okay.

With tears in his eyes and a soft crack in his voice, he struggles for the words.

“My phone and my wallet are somewhere in the median… I just cashed my entire paycheck. I – I don’t know what I’m going to do.”

An effort begins, the man who stopped to help has a plan.

“Sir, we’ll figure it out. Let us go out there. You stay here.”

The man; older, handicapped, and upset, shakes his newfound helper’s hand. The man is wearing a red cap, tattered and worn. It displays – ‘USMC – Do or Die!’

A glance is shared between the men, something is uttered by the helper.

“Semper Fi.”

Almost an hour later; hundreds of more cars have passed, the helper has enlisted some of his friends to assist. Finally, a wet phone is located, still functioning. A wallet is found later; the man is overcome with joy and thankfulness.

Another hand shake is offered, and accepted. The helper and his friends simply leave, only to find someone else in need. They don’t want the thanks, they only want to see the effects of what they do. Making an impact; simply doing a small thing – often elicits the greatest reward. A simple feeling; knowing you made a difference for someone else. The helper and his friends? Cops.

These are the stories happening everyday as people pass those electric blue lights. Don’t forget those who are here to help you. Don’t pass on an opportunity to help someone else.

For the Marines out there, Semper Fi – Always Faithful
