I’m Publishing In 2019

“Fight the Good Fight” is a modern war thriller for a general audience

Hello faithful followers of mine.

Happy Holidays and here’s to a prosperous 2019 for us all.

I’ve signed a contract with a company to publish my book, “Fight the Good Fight,” in 2019.

The quick pitch goes like this: A group of 12 soldiers and an army Chaplain form a rogue fighting group called the Valhalla Unit to fight those who create wars: war profiteers, bankers, and politicians.

SilverWood Books of London, England did an editorial assessment and here are some of their comments:

“‘Fight the Good Fight’ is a modern war thriller for a general audience. Following battles and principals of a rogue U.S. fighting unit in Afghanistan, the Valhalla Unit is a force for peace. They stand in contrast to the antagonists: a banker, a war profiteer, and politician. Eli Silver, a banker, finds himself caught up in military financing with Terry Smith, a Representative with an agenda. Lillith Rice, CEO of STC, Inc., uses the war to try and further her career and make money. The narrative’s protagonist, Thad “Cotton” Kristofferson, muses on his involvement with the Valhalla Unit 15 years on from the opening of the book in 2002.”

They added further:

“This is a fast-pace and exciting read. The richly descriptive writing style is immersive and shows through research on the subject matter. The manuscript has a good balance between Thad’s reflections 15 years on, action on the ground in the Valhalla Unit, and snapshots of the lives of those profiteering from the war. The writing moves smoothly between dialogue and descriptive, with highly immersive and descriptive passages standing out, creating a well-formed world. Characters are well-developed.”

 

I hope you will join me and the Valhalla Unit as we traverse uncharted and dangerous territory.

Have a great New Years!

Voting

When you go to the polls you are acknowledging that you approve of the voting system in this country and that you are willing to give credence to candidates on the ballot at the time.

Ballot Box

When you go to the polls you are acknowledging that you approve of the voting system in this country and that you are willing to give credence to candidates on the ballot at the time.

What if both candidates are piles of crap or you choose to vote for “the lesser of two evils”?

Evil is still evil and why would you vote for evil or a pile of crap?

 

In life we can choose who we give our time and energy to. This includes how and where we spend our money.

Speding Money

In essence when you buy consumer goods you are voting with your money. Research who you are buying from first.

A way to resolve the issues that seem to be plaguing the political system and the consumer culture in American society is to turn your back on them both.

There is a movie franchise called Nightmare on Elm Street. The first of the series was released in the mid-1980’s and, to those who don’t know, the creepy man pictured was killing innocent kids in their sleep as revenge against their parents who burned him alive because he was a monster.

In this movie Johnny Depp (his first acting role) plays a kid named Glen and at one point tells the protagonist, Nancy, played by Heather Langenkamp, that there is an old Native myth that says the way to destroy evil is to turn your back on it and that act takes its power away.

In the end, Nancy does just this and Freddy dies. (Spoiler alert: only for a while).

I advise doing the same with the political hacks in Washington, D.C. and their corporate crony masters.

And a friendly reminder, folks: If voting mattered they wouldn’t let us do it.
