Really Fly? Could you possibly have left it any more hanging at the end of book 3?

Crap....

Hey, Mike...it gets wrapped up in Book 4.

More or less. :)

Actually, I fully intended to STOP with that 'series' after 4. My editor and publisher at that time talked me into continuing it. Well, that and I had a lot of people email me and ask that I PLEASE continue the story line.
My wife reads everything first...in all of it's unedited, misspelled glory. I started a new 'saga' with MS5 and she swears that 5, 6 and 7 are the best yet...with 5 and 6 being her faves. 7 is at the editor and will probably be out around June/July-ish.
I'm in the middle of 8 and have hit a wall. Hopefully soon I'll be able to get my shtuff together and finish it. :skep:

OK, fly, book 4 is behind me now. Enough brain candy for a while. I think I will go read a little about what Bogle's thoughts on the federal reserve are.

I, Ripper by Stephen Hunter (author of the Bob Lee Swagger books, among others). A magnificent writer who delves into Jack the Ripper in an historical fiction style, but with two first person characters. Very well done.

That's cool. Jay got his before I got mine.
I guess...I should probably order mine, huh? I went online to see where the heck they were. I never pressed the button to actually ORDER them. :facepalm: I would say that it's been a busy time, but...that's no excuse.
I also need to order the new copies of Caldera.

LOL

Jeez, Heath, I'm so far behind, now.

I feel left out :(

I really liked this cover, and the last cover from the Monster Squad series.

Jon, that's the same story, just the...third? Fourth time?..that it's been recovered.
I had my original graphic guy design a cover for it. When I was with my publisher, they sat on the story for nearly two years before moving on it, meanwhile, I pimped out the pics of the cover, trying to stir up interest in the story. Some British guy stole the graphics.
Image

Then my new graphics guy (who lives in Italy) made a new cover. I didn't like it, but I adopted it.
Image

Then, the girl that reworked my website wanted to break into the graphics side, so she made a new cover. I liked it, but she misspelled a ton of stuff on the back and she screwed up a lot of the formatting on the inside.
Image

So, I went BACK to my new guy (in Italy) and he did this whole new look for me. I reworked all of the formatting inside and added a personal ad in the back. It's sort of a 'if you like this story, check out some of the other crap I've written' kind of thing. And, TBH, I like the look of the final artwork now. It's more in line with the story and I think it will help sell the book.
At least,...I REALLY hope it will.

Amazon teased me with a 3 book package of "John Milton" books by a guy named Mark Dawson. Review said that Milton was the next Mitch Rapp. I'm halfway through the first. Not too bad, but I find it pretty easy to put down when I get tired. I stayed up all night for many a Mitch Rapp adventure.

There's a lot of people trying desperately to fill those shoes. I even toyed with pulling a character from Whispers (Bobby Bridger) and using him in a story. I got about 10K words into it and then had to redirect my efforts to finish the MS saga I was working on. Maybe when I'm done, I'll go back and give it another shot.

I like the first cover; the last one is good, too. Agree with ya.

Yeah, that first one was my favorite. But once that British prat stole the image from it...I was pretty bummed.
True, different titles, subtle differences, etc, but I didn't want to have to hear from HIS fans that I stole his cover...esp when I'd had that cover for a year and a half prior to him publishing his story. The only reason mine never got released was my publisher and her belief that stand alone novels 'don't sell'. They do...just not like series books do. Which makes me wonder how the big names make it. They don't usually write series stories.
