Hope everyone is doing well!
I’ve got some pretty big news this week, which is that I finally typed the two most important words a writer can ever write: The End. Edits are nearly done — we’re moving fast — and, my word, is it even better than I thought.
The book tells the story of two very-experienced Marine NCOs, whose paths cross in Afghanistan. The two men, Sergeant Grant Morgan and Corporal Sam Dean, end up facing one of the most fateful decisions a leader can ever face. I don’t want to say more, or obviously give away what happens when they make that huge decision, but I will tell you the title! 🙂 Unless I change my mind, which I don’t think I will, the title is Hill 406.
I think that has a nice ring to it, and it has an even deeper meaning. And it’s fair to say that Hill 406 ends up being a pretty important part of the book.
Anyway, that’s the news, everyone. I’ll be getting you all this book super fast. Probably within two weeks. No lie! 🙂
