Romantic Times Wrap Up, Nook First and FREE eBooks
I’m back home and have spent the entire day just trying to clear out my email in-box and my physical in-box. I also took Cool Gus & Sass Becca for a run. It was about 85 out, but luckily we cross a creek during the run and they can splash about and drink some water. They’re still getting used to the big move and the much different weather. Becca chased a fox, which might not have turned out well, but it got away.
I’ve got a stack of business cards from RT that I have to go through and follow up on. It was a very worthwhile trip. I’m indebted to Romantic Times for my career achievement award even though I missed being there on time to get it—those who know me, know that when I teach, I tend to stay afterwards and answer all questions and time just away from me. Mea Culpa.
I also talked for a long time with a friend from the King County library system and big plans are brewing in my brain. I can see the smoke.
Terry Brooks had this to say about my Atlantis series: “Spell-binding! Will keep you on the edge of your seat. Call it techno-thriller, call it science fiction, call it just terrific story-telling.” That’s what you get when you teach with him seven straight years at Maui, but also it is a really cool series.
This book is one of my favorites because my hero, Ragnarok, a Viking in the year 1,000 AD, must protect a Seer from Valkyries, Kraken and other forces of legend and help her on a quest that connects through mysterious gates to my modern former Green Beret, Eric Dane’s battle in the present. Ragnarok was one of those characters that just clicked. He’s a guy’s guy. Very concerned about the condition of his axe. Seriously.
Also this week, one of my books is being featured on Nook First: Psychic Warrior: Project Aura. I based the book on an actual program (once classified) we ran in the 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne). If you’ve seen the movie, Men Who Stare At Goats, well,– strangely, while it was a funny movie, there was a lot of really true material in there. We did some strange things in Trojan Warrior and also, the First Earth Battalion was a concept I was briefed on at West Point.
There’s a lot more interesting stuff happening, including, a name change for Who Dares Wins Publishing. I’ll blog about it later, once the LLC is formally established, but there’s a really big hint on this page for what the new name will be.
