I wanted to update you on the status of new releases that are forthcoming and to give you the opportunity to participate in a survey that I am analyzing for The Propaganda Project. At the end of the survey, you will get to see the results that I’ve collected so far. It takes five minutes. I think you will find it interesting. Below is the link if you want to check it out.
Initiation is on schedule to be released toward the end of May. As with all my new releases, I will let you know when and where to pick up your free copy, when the time comes. Below is the blurb. Please excuse any errors, as I haven’t had the blurb edited yet.
The back of their shirts read, One Team, One Goal, Back-to-Back State Champions.
Carter Lynch didn’t care about the slogan, the prestige, or the tradition. He was an outsider, a foreign invader from a foreign land. The army brat transfer didn’t join the football team to make friends. He didn’t care about anything but taking a starting spot and earning a scholarship. He had what it took to be a star. He was focused, talented … violent. He was ready for the game. The initiation and the aftermath … that’s a different story.
Cesspool is on schedule to be released toward the end of June. Blurb below:
James Fisher is the worst kind of teacher … the kind that teaches his students to question authority, to think for themselves. He’s a half-ass husband, that doesn’t know what his wife is up to. He’s the worst kind of citizen, the kind that sees through the propaganda, the kind that won’t kneel to the power of the state.
After tragedy strikes, he moves to a backwoods town, content to waste away while the world burns. He’s awakened from his apathy by his only neighbor, a small girl with a big problem. It would be easier to look the other way. Getting involved has dire consequences that would not only change the lives of James and his neighbor, but the entire town.
Author note on Cesspool
Media is a reflection of our cultural and political biases. Virtual and physical shelves are filled with novels where the weary detective, or soldier, or the government fill in the blank is the protagonist. Even stories that involve government corruption, are often solved by some special agent that works for … you guessed it—the government. In Cesspool, I wanted to flip this paradigm upside-down.
The aforementioned Propaganda Project is probably going to be a September release. It is very heavy on the research. I’m reading a ton on the subject, so it’s going to take a bit longer than my fiction.
Thank you for subscribing. It means a lot to me that you take the time to read my novels and nonfiction books.
