Update on Mexican Heat — Brace yourselves for next week

Hey guys!

Hope everyone has had a great week! And for those who haven’t, buck up! Smile! Laugh! It’s Friday!

Just wanted to give you guys a quick update. We’re in the final stages of pulling together “Mexican Heat,” so unless something unexpected happens, look for it to drop at the end of next week.

For my new blog subscribers, here’s the teaser info on “Mexican Heat.”

A powerful drug cartel, led by a madman, threatens to topple Mexico’s government.

An American SEAL Team Platoon sent to handle the situation is ambushed and decimated.

Can Nick Woods — one of America’s greatest warriors — stop this out-of-control cartel?

I need to amp up that teaser info, which is from about — oh — February, but that’ll be one of the last things I do.

Just know that the book has more firefights and small unit battles than you could possibly imagine. It’s got quite a bit of hand-to-hand that I managed to somehow (THANKFULLY!) work in. And, there’s a sick psycho who wields (effectively and often) a katana sword. 

And none of this accounts for a hot Latina by the name of Isabella, who Nick gets teamed with. Nor a  talented team of shooters he recruits — some of America’s best. Nor the edge-of-your-seats drama that Mexico’s President and his number one supporter goes through as they fight to keep Mexico from destabilizing and ripping apart at the seams. 

I can’t wait to get you guys this book, and I apologize for the delays.

The life transition from newspaper magnate (err, never mind) to a ferociously driven man trying to pay off a fair amount of debt through some lucrative consulting gigs on the side hasn’t done much to help me hit my original deadline of roughly April.

But we’re finally there and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all of your all’s support and encouragement.

Even crazier, it’s not just you all who are with me! Thankfully, the first Nick Woods book “Sold Out” continues to sell better and better, and I increasingly get emails from folks I’ve never met asking questions or saying some really kind things. (Who’s paying them to do this?!)

If you’re one of my new blog subscribers and you’re here because you loved my Western thriller “Little Man, and the Dixon County War,” you’ll probably want to read “Sold Out” first if you’re intrigued by the sounds of “Mexican Heat.”

While you can read Book 2 of the Nick Woods series without having read Book 1, there are some things given away in Book 2 that you’d really rather experience in real time as a part of Book 1. Trust me on that!

Thanks again everyone!!! I owe so many of you so, so much for your support!

Keep the faith,

  1. Stan- You really have me excited and looking forward to Mexican Heat. I’m glad you gave some background info, so I can imagine it as more that a rat-ta-tat bloodbath. Nancy


    1. Thanks, Nancy. I don’t enjoy books that are just rat-ta-tat bloodbaths — there has to be a plot, with plenty at stake, with strong characters, before I can truly get invested. Hopefully, I’ve done that with “Mexican Heat!”


    1. Britt, you are so kind!!!! Thank you for the kind words!

      And I’m sorry I didn’t get a chance to drop a line on your most recent post! (My job ends Sept 30, so I’ve been doign some side consulting work to build up the cash reserves!)

      Anyway, you look sexy with the shorter hair — though typically I’m like most men who prefer long hair! lol

      And enjoy your hiatus during Sept! (I hope you continue to stalk my blog!!!)


    2. Oh!!! And when you get back, let’s plan on some kind of blog post or something or other for your new book!

      It’s not my genre, but I’ve got followers on my site that I’m confident might be interested in it!
