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!
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!
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!
COMING IN APRIL – THE BOOK DESCRIPTION!
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 of Christ were documented in a cryptic journal, which remained a closely guarded secret of the Order, until its owner met an untimely demise. In Operation Nightfall, Arklight’s Spear Team discovered the existence of this 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. In Force Interdiction, the fate of mankind hangs in the balance as Spear Team undertakes a mission to secure the next piece of Arma Christi, which leads to further discovery and understanding of the truth behind the Knights Templar legend.
Arklight and their predecessors, the Alsos Mission Team, fight in the ultimate battle across time, attempting to gain the advantage against the forces of evil. 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.

In Nightfall, you learn that the Nazi spy, Dr. Clarke, was in pursuit of The Storm on the Sea of Galilee. After a very tense moment in Morocco, he fails to complete his quest, and Ian learns of the Knights Templar conspiracy. A few references are made later in Nightfall about the existence of this priceless work of art. In Interdiction, you will find out what happened to the painting, and better yet, why it was stolen.
The infamous history of this Rembrandt is scattered at best. In 1990, it was stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and has never been located. The FBI has been investigating the theft for 28 years, and has yet to solve the crime. Maybe Arklight will be able to track it down, #whodunnit!
It’s heating up in Nashville…
Zip scaled a large tree not far from the bank of the Cumberland River. Once on his perch, he assembled the Desert Tactical Hardened Armor Interdiction (HAI) .375 Cheytac sniper rifle. An advanced bull-pup design, the HAI served as a purpose built platform capable of 1500 yard accuracy through the integrated suppressed heavy-barrel. The night-vision with thermal coalesced optics proved capable in Bizerte, and tonight the team needed them once again. The assembly took Zip only a minute, as he quickly powered up the scope adjusting his dope for the heavy short range subsonic round. The Navajo warrior and former Marine Recon sniper quietly radioed, “Steady, I can see the longboat – 200 yards ahead… I see seven, no… nine men.”
I’m in the final rewrite before beta release and things are starting to get interesting.
