Where I’ve been the past few months…

It’s been roughly three weeks since I’ve posted, and I’m sure many of you have wondered where I’ve been. Unless I’m mistaken, that’s the longest gap — by far — of me not posting in three years. (Even prior to that I’ve just mostly posted Twitter summaries or other things of late, where I haven’t put myself out there much.)

Partly, the lack of posting is a result of my new job and the transition of adjusting to it, but my long-time followers know I still managed to post regularly through the closing of my paper, so you true members of Mitchell’s Militia are far too keen to think it’s just me in a new job.

Partly, I’ve been super busy — Danah and I have finally gotten our company debt refinanced, and we’re still wrapping up loose ends from our company even nearly a year-plus after the fact — but my true friends on here know I’ve been busy and trying to over-achieve since the day I left for the Marines at 17.

So, what truly gives?

Quick news announcement. I’m super proud to announce that I landed a really exciting and great job with Akins Public Strategies. I’ll be doing mostly public relations work — you know, writing, researching, branding, etc.

And now for the good stuff!

Hope these inspire you!

‘Mexican Heat’ is “Tom Clancy on steroids,” says Author Mark Allen

Mexican Heat,” my second Nick Woods book, got reviewed by Author (and friend) Mark Allen.

Mark Allen’s review of Mexican Heat

Take a look if you get a moment, and I hope everyone has a great weekend!

(Oh! And I should say that “Mexican Heat”and “Sold Out” have been selling amazing of late, spending much of the week with BOTH of them in the Top 100 of Amazon’s political thriller genre, with the likes of Brad Thor, Vince Flynn, and David Baldacci.)

“Mexican Heat (Nick Woods, No. 2)” has arrived…

Finally, it has arrived!

Mexican Heat (Nick Woods, No. 2)” is live and up for sale on Amazon! (This is the follow-up/sequel to “Sold Out.”)

So, buy it, tell your friends about it, share it on facebook, and go yell at that neighbor across the street. Tell him, too!

Book Description:

Nick Woods is tired of waiting. America’s greatest sniper has spent the better part of two years up in the mountains of Montana, waiting for the government to double-cross him and try to come get him.

Cover_Mexican Heat - SmallHe has good reason to be wary. The government has betrayed him twice already, but Nick’s a hard man to kill.

And just waiting in isolation, with his wife Anne gone, and his paranoia at dangerous levels, is killing him, day-by-day.

And so Nick ventures out. Carefully, like Nick does everything.

But what Nick doesn’t know is that the Mexican government stands on the verge of complete collapse.

A brilliant madman has united the drug cartels into a deadly alliance, and the Mexican President holds a perilous grip on power.

Now, Mexico’s leading businessman — a multi-billionaire who owns much of the country — is about to exit the country, selling off his businesses and taking his capital out of the country.

Such a move would lead to an exodus of other businesses and just like that, America would face one of its largest catastrophes in recent times: a third world country on its borders, run by a drug cartel whose reach spans from South America into deep within the United States.

America has already sent special forces to deal with this cartel, but that proved a catastrophe.

The country needs Nick Woods again, and it needs him now.


Hope you guys enjoy this book half as much as I enjoyed writing it!!!
