My next book is out now! And I can’t even tell you how proud I am of this one!! I know talking about your book is kind of like talking about one of your kids — you think yours is the best; they’re beautiful and perfect!! — but I really think this one is special.
I’ve been writing seriously for a couple of decades, and I’ve now published nine books. With each one, I think I’ve improved. But with this book… Wow. I think I took it all to a whole new level.
For now, it’s only available on Amazon in Kindle version, but that seems to be where the VAST majority of sales happen anyway. 🙂 I’ll work to get it up in other formats and other outlets in the coming days.
Here’s the book description:
In the scorching oven of Helmand Province, Afghanistan, the roots of an incredible bond between two Marine NCOs are forged in the fires of combat.
Even a “slow” tour against the Taliban is enough to test the will of most men, but these two men will face a veteran Taliban leader, who’s returning and has come into the possession of new weapons smuggled in from Iran.
With these new weapons, the Taliban will launch a devastating attack, with horrific consequences following. These two NCO’s — Sergeant Morgan and Corporal Dean — will come to face the biggest test of their lives in this moment.
Orders from above will clash with realities on the ground. And in this hellish, once-in-a-lifetime situation, these two NCO’s will put their careers and lives on the line.
They don’t know it as it’s happening, but Hill 406 is beckoning them, calling their names.
For them, they’re just two men trying to do what’s right. But fate, and circumstances far beyond their control, will force them to climb what the Afghans call the Hill of Bones. And on this day, just like in many days in previous wars, there will be a lot of blood spilled on Hill 406.
Hope you guys enjoy it! (Here’s the link: Hill 406.) And please help spread the word! 🙂
