Hello, backers and friends -
We’ve been in a whirlwind of activity, racing toward the
book finishing line. Our latest milestone was passing the publisher copyedit
phase. It just goes to show that the more eyes on a manuscript, the better.
Still counting on the May delivery date.
We’re also reviewing book cover designs and really love what the artists at Inkshares have proposed. We'll update you when we receive a final.
As we committed early on, here’s another excerpt (copyeditor
Book excerpt #3 from
chapter titled Mission to the Future (National Guard training exercise)
Around midnight, I heard something that sounded like a
big-ass mosquito. I looked around and thought, What in the world? I saw this black object in the air coming toward
us—maybe the size of a kid’s model airplane. It hung in the air momentarily,
then turned around. About an hour later,
I heard the Apache Longbow. I was getting ready, getting into position, and then got a
call saying we were dead. What? “Yeah, they killed you from four thousand
meters out.” I thought, Are you kidding me? That’s not even fair.
That was a couple of miles away, you know? But the mission was over… We were
going to repeat the exercise the next evening, and I got a great idea…
