Chase your dreams!

That’s a whole lot of edits for one day!

I’ve been killing myself today, working on some edits for one of my books. (Look at that pic over there! lol) This is something I’ve spent probably the last month or two on.

A question you might ask yourself is what have you done to chase your dreams? Either today or this week?

Fortune is not something that just happens to us. We have to chase our dreams. We have to work hard on them.

I’m literally re-editing Sold Out, my first book that I published in 2012. I had worked on for ten years prior to publishing it. I’ve re-edited the entire thing probably five or six times since. And I’ve literally reprinted the entire thing out in paper version and I’m doing some re-writes and pretty serious revisions on it.

This is in preparation for Book 5 of the series, which I’ve started. But it’s also because I know I’ve grown as a writer and the new me is WAY better than the old me.

But more than anything else, it’s because I haven’t reached my dreams. I’m guessing you probably haven’t either.

Let’s work hard, people, and get after them! We can achieve our dreams if we just believe in them, work hard, and never give up!

More chi! Train harder!

‘Stolen Daughter’ getting stellar reviews so far

The reviews and feedback that I’ve been getting on my new book “Stolen Daughter” have been great so far! I wanted to thank everyone for all their support to date.

I also wanted to post about the book one last time as one sharp reader reminded me that I launched the book at about the worst time possible. She told me that I should have been more strategic and delayed the release, since it was the end of summer, school was starting back, and people were too busy to be buying a book.

I’ll admit I never even considered the timing. Hahaha. I also should probably hire her to handle my marketing. 🙂

At any rate, if you  haven’t picked up the book yet (or don’t even remember reading the first post/email about the novel), here’s what the book is about:

“Stolen Daughter” is a fast-paced, action-packed private investigator book, about a man named Dolan, who used to serve as a distinguished detective in the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

Unfortunately for Dolan, he came home early one day and caught a man in bed with his wife. Dolan, being a former Army Ranger and long-time boxer, didn’t react well to that situation. He beat the man about half to death and in the process, lost his job, his pension, and (worst of all) even custody of his daughter.

Now, he’s moved from Nashville to Knoxville, and he’s trying to get his new private investigator firm off the ground. This is proving far more difficult than he expected because he lacks any contacts in Knoxville and spent his life savings trying (unsuccessfully) to win back custody of his daughter.

This is all bad enough, but things turn worse for him when the case of a missing seventeen-year-old girl​, who’s likely been abducted,​ falls in his lap. ​

The local cops in the girl’s hometown have already given up on the case and Dolan’s her only chance. But for Dolan, money’s tight. And the aunt of the missing girl is dangerously beautiful. Perhaps worst of all, the missing seventeen-year-old girl​ unfortunately looks like his own daughter, who at sixteen is only one year younger.

Dolan finds himself drawn deeper-and-deeper into the case. Learning of where she’s been taken, he races to the secluded mountains of North Carolina to try to save the girl. But he soon realizes he’s in over his head. There’s a dirty cop involved, and that man is backed up by the mob.

Dolan is up against an organized criminal element that stretches all the way to Las Vegas and they’ve put a hit out on him.

Dolan, decorated Army Ranger or not, is about to be in the fight of his life.

The book is available on Amazon and is only $2.99 for the Kindle edition.

Stolen Daughter is now available for purchase

It’s official! The book is out!

“Stolen Daughter” is now available on Amazon. As a reminder, here’s the book description.

Ummm… The book is amazing. Buy it. lol

“Stolen Daughter” is a fast-paced private investigator book, about a man named Dolan, who used to serve as a distinguished detective in the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

Unfortunately for Dolan, he came home early one day and caught a man in bed with his wife. Dolan, being a former Army Ranger and long-time boxer, didn’t react well to that situation. He beat the man about half to death and in the process, lost his job, his pension, and even custody of his daughter.

Now, he’s moved from Nashville to Knoxville, and he’s trying to get a new private investigator firm off the ground. This is proving far more difficult than he expected because he lacks any contacts in Knoxville and faces several well-established local firms. Worse, he spent his life savings trying (unsuccessfully) to win back custody of his daughter.

This is all bad enough, but things turn worse for him when the case of a missing girl​, who’s likely been abducted,​ falls in his lap. ​

The local cops in the girl’s hometown have already given up on the case and Dolan’s her only chance. But for Dolan, money’s tight. And the aunt of the missing girl is dangerously beautiful.

Dolan begins investigating the case and races to North Carolina to try to save the girl, but soon realizes he’s in over his head. Evidence indicates that he’s up against an organized criminal element that stretches all the way to Las Vegas. And worst of all, they’ve put a hit out on him and even have a dirty cop on their payroll.

Dolan is about to be in the fight of his life.


Two quick administrative points.

First, the book is currently only available as an ebook. That means you can read it on Kindle devices or eReaders, of course, but you can also read it on your phone, tablet, or desktop computer. Just click the image below the price of the book on the right side of the page that says, “READ ON ANY DEVICE.” That will explain how to make it happen. (It’s easy and simple to do, as Amazon makes everything.)

Secondly, there are still a few, small grammatical errors in the book. We’ve had a couple of people with their hands on the book, so those happen. They’re not significant and don’t affect the story in any way, but if grammatical errors bother you, then give me a couple more days to iron all those out.

I’m just, as usual, too excited to get this announced. And I’ve got — thankfully!! — some friends and readers bugging me, asking me when it’ll “finally” be out. So, it’s out. 🙂

Hope you enjoy it! And if you do, don’t forget to share the news about it or drop a short review or tell a friend or have the book title tattooed on your arm. I’m all about any form of advertising!

Love all of you.
