GREETINGS FROM THE SUB-ARCTIC
Sometimes a single grain of sand can stand out on a vast beach…
Stanley stole my spot, then sacked out, snoring in my face as if to lord his position over me. I let him have that spot because he is an olympic-caliber sleeper.
My wife was at a conference in Philadelphia last week, so it was just Stanley and me. It’s snowing, but that means it has warmed up rather significantly: from -18F when I returned home from Colorado to nearly twenty above. We’ll get some good outside time over this next week as temperatures promise to remain in the twenties.
I spent this past weekend at the Alaska Comicon right here in Fairbanks at the Carlson Center. We had a great deal of foot traffic. The warm weather helped people make the decision to leave their houses. That’s our booth – mine and Alex Bates. This picture was taken near the end of the first day. I sold over half of what I brought. It was a good show and we’ll sign up next year as a three-year returning platinum sponsor.
I spent a week at the Superstars Writing Seminar in Colorado Springs since my last newsletter. This one’s hard to see. I’m wearing the green shirt right in the middle. Kevin J. Anderson is at the lectern introducing us.
Loss of Power! Have you read the latest Rick Banik?
I have over twenty years experience in the intelligence community. I love to show how things happen behind the scenes and who gets the work done. Rick Banik is as real as it gets.
If you’ve read the book, I’d appreciate it if you could leave me a review. That would boost my spirits. I’ll admit that this is my worst selling series, and I think these are some of the absolute best books I’ve ever written. I find it befuddling.
Power is life. When it gets cut off, we expect it to return quickly. When it doesn’t, it becomes a political football. Is it an attack, incompetence, or an overloaded and aging grid?
“Following in the footsteps of Ludlum, Rick Banik is a new patriot for a new age, where selfless action is the exception. Rick clears the decks of an intelligence community that has lost its way.”
If you haven’t jumped into this series yet, then you’ll want to pick up People Raged.
Here’s what a former Marine reviewer said recently about People Raged: “This book is on par with WEB Griffin and Tom Clancy.”
