The latest on Book 3 of the Nick Woods series

Hey guys!

Hope everyone is having a great Friday! Just a quick update on my end. Sold Out_Cover

I am editing, editing, editing like crazy on my next book, “Afghan Storm“, which we’re supposed to have done Oct. 1. So glad my lovely wife Danah​ has done so much to help this book (including rewrites!), and that Emily Akin​ is helping with the editing and making me look like I know how to write. : )

Oh, and for those that don’t know, Afghan Storm is Book 3 of the Nick Woods series, so if you haven’t started the series, it’s a great time to start it. I’ve been extremely fortunate to have sold 30,000 copies of the series, so here’s the link to Book 1 (titled “Sold Out”) in case you’re interested but haven’t started the series yet. I’m thrilled and overwhelmed to say that “Sold Out” and the second book (“Mexican Heat“) remain in the Top 100 of Amazon’s political thriller category. Cover_Mexican Heat - Small

Thank you guys for all your support and for allowing me to do full-time what I’d absolutely do for free!

Can’t wait to get you Afghan Storm soon. It might literally be better than both Sold Out and Mexican Heat!

Keep the faith,

Research for a future scene in the Nick Woods’s series

You know you have the coolest job ever when your “work” consists of studying these two videos for an upcoming scene in the next Nick Woods’s series.

P.S. Please accept the greatest gift I can give, a book I believe to be worth $10,000.

P.P.S. Thanks to all who continue to make my novels a success. I seriously couldn’t have done it with everyone’s support. I’m excited to say that Little Man, and the Dixon County War  has gone as high as No. 16 on the Amazon UK Paid List (see here and here). My second novel, Sold Outhas also done well, going as high as No. 81 on the Amazon Paid List for the category of War (see here and here). Learn more about both books here.

Breaking into the Top 100 again with my Western novel

Wow. So proud that tonight my book “Little Man and the Dixon County War” broke into the top 100 Amazon UK Paid List again.

That’s the fourth time this has happened, and it always just blows me away that my first book could climb that high when it’s competing against so many great books out there. And amazingly, I’ve now got it priced at $4.99 instead of $2.99 when it made it before.

Thanks to what are apparently my fans in the UK, most of whom will probably never see this! (I can see where my visitors come from, and I don’t get many from the UK, so the book must be spreading by word of mouth.)

And thanks again to my awesome wife Danah for all her support and encouragement, and for designing an incredible cover for the book — one that literally blows away those from some of the best book cover designers in New York.

P.P.S. Thanks to all who continue to make my novel Little Man, and the Dixon County War a huge success! It’s gone as high as No. 16 on the Amazon UK Paid List (see here and here), landing smack dab between a Louis L’Amour and Zane Grey book. And don’t forget to check out Sold Out if you’re interested. It’s already gone as high as No. 81 on the Amazon Paid List for the category of War. (Link to be uploaded soon.) You can learn more about both books here.
