I have several book projects ongoing currently. One of my editors likes to constantly chirp about “bite size” pieces. I DISAGREE! That would be putting it mildly. I just need to work harder. Take a look below.
Man in the Clubhouse. The story takes place in the early 1900s about the rise of Eddy O’Brien, an Irish politician in Hell’s Kitchen. Eddy learns about the problems and struggles of his neighborhood as he works his way up through the political ladder. Starting from a mere grunt for a block captain slowly working his way up to run for political office. As he progresses up the ladder we learn more about the political conflicts and compromises that are part of New York political life. We learn not only about his political life in Hell’s Kitchen but also his social life. There are gangsters, political bosses, prostitutes, civic minded citizens, the Catholic Church, the Average Joes next door, and plenty more! I intend on taking this book to a literary agent and hope to get it published.
Mason City Day 1 Series. Of course the long awaited sequel of The Journal of Austin Sommers that everyone has been asking about. This is a four book installment about the first day of the zombie breakout in Mason City. All the events in the four books that take place throughout the same day in the same city.
One book is about a former pilot named Tobias Bedford and his struggle to return home from prison. He looks forward to seeing his family and friends but he isn’t too sure if he is prepared for it.
The next book is about a soldier named Victor Cardozo from San Pedro who has came to Mason City to track the whereabouts of Austin Sommers and learn what happened in the tent city back in San Pedro. Why did everyone die? Was there foul play?
The third book is about a young upstart female pro wrestler named Lydia Portman who is rash and a bit rowdy at times. She gets caught up in the vibrant spirit that takes place on the eve of the zombie breakout.
The fourth book is a choose your own adventure style book. Not so much as one chooses a character. But this book is made up of three main characters. A bank manager, John Stanton; a college student, Leigh Bartlowe; and a janitor, Micah Roland. You choose to read as any of the three characters as they go throughout the first day of the zombie breakout in Mason City.
I aim to deliver all four books at once so look forward to them being published on Amazon.
Edge of the Galaxy. A slight change in name from On The Omegala. A young woman graduates from The Dolinger Space Warfare Institute. She is given the offer to join a colony ship named The Omegala that will venture to some unknown planet on an expedition. The Omegela has many internal problems as the crew struggles with each other as well as attacks from pirates. Will the crew make it to their destination or will they fail miserably?
I hope to publish this on a few free sites as well as here on my blog. I intend to offer an entry sometime this week. Stay tuned!
Honorable Mentions: I will discuss more about the following books later. These works I have started but are on hiatus. When the Heroes Act!. The Red Hat: Easterly Conundrum. Secrets of the Crimson Fortress. Valor of The Blood Hunt.
Notes: I intend on re-writing the Xavi Jones story. I will publish it for free online in a few places aside from here.
I will continue to keep the blog updated as I work on these books. Thanks for your patience. I look forward to posting more.
