The Thrust

My next novel The Thrust is in the works, my being new to indi publishing required some learning, well a lot of learning actually. It’s all good, reaching specifications on Amazon and  CreateSpace was certainly a task though.  I’ve found an editor. She reads everything about crime, action, suspense, etc. She has edited my novel The Tug, and being she’s an avid reader when she told me The Tug kept her turning pages I was thrilled. Pressure about The Thrust-No. Excited is more like it.

The Thrust is a sequel to the The Tug, MC Macon has turned into a monster himself but it’s all for Anna, and he purposely placed himself back in jail…I know unheard of…. Who would do such a thing? It’s complicated and the only way to fathom the idea is to dive into Macon’s world. He was torn in the Tug but in The Thrust he’s a powerhouse and he’s dangerous. All he wanted was a simple life, but they destroyed his dreams, and he’s back for revenge.

And so I have been absent of late, failing to post, forgive me. Fulltime jailors work, family, learning how to self publish, ancestry search/post, shopping, cleaning, reading, etc., held me hostage. Not that I’ve been totally absent from WordPress…I’ve been reading blogs, very helpful blogs at that! I close this post with a big Thank You!

Make it a Series

Well it seems I cannot get rid of Macon, the protagonist of my novel The Tug. I feel the story has much more, and since my creative mind keeps seeing him in the future, that is after The Tug, I’ve decided to start a new title. Actually two more titles. A three part series, The Tug, The Thrust, and The Truth.

It was the last week in October that I first dreamed up this story in preparation of the NaNoWriMo event, and though I have another unrelated title in the works, this one won’t allow me to fully concentrate on the unseen evil that’s chasing my other protagonist around.

I’ve already self published  The Tug and have it on Amazon Kindle of which I’m waiting for customer reviews. Begining tomorrow I will again promote it for free and hope it will inspire some to post their opinions. If I’m correct they should feel rushed, sort of like the rush Macon feels while incarcerated. Seems things happen fast in there.

The Thrust will begin where The Tug left off and Macon has, against his true self, his longing for better, joined a criminal force that seeks to entrap people on the inside for their selfish and evil conspiracy. It’s discouraging that punishment by confinement is nothing more than a breeding ground for such acts. Macon will struggle but triumph as he outwits the most dangerous predators of our society.

At least that’s what I think he’ll do.

My dream is to become a professional bullshit artist. Or, as others prefer to call them, a novelist. I know, a highly unoriginal and unattainable goal. What's my back-up plan? Ninja fairy. Here's to being disgustingly unoriginal!
