I try to do avoid doing too much self-promo, but sales have dipped a bit and hell, I just closed the company that I fought my guts out on for nine years, so it’s been a bit trying of late. (Especially since I thought I would have “Mexican Heat” wrapped up by now.)
And while I’ve had some amazing friends and family members helping me keep my spirits up, there’s nothing like an honest compliment from someone you don’t even know.
So, to see the review below when I got home tonight? Wow, there just aren’t any words that can explain what that meant to me…
And for the reviewer to say that my book is in the spirit of Stephen Hunter and not just a “knockoff?” That really made my day. Hell, my week. (Full disclosure: “Point of Impact” by Stephen Hunter is one of my favorite books, and that book obviously influenced “Sold Out.”)
Read the review below, please, and go tell your friends what an “amazing” author I am… : )
Amazon Review Link: Excellent book in the spirit of Stephen Hunter.

P.S. If you enjoy fast-paced books, you just might like my works. “Sold Out” tracks the life of a legendary Marine Sniper after a CIA unit decides to kill him for reasons of national security. “Little Man, and the Dixon County War” tells the uphill fight a young deputy faces after surviving three years of war only to find himself in the sights of a mighty cattle baron. And “Soldier On,” a short novel, follows the lives of several German soldiers in a depleted infantry company trying to make it through the final, miserable months of World War II.
