I become angry with my editors after they finish giving remarks on my work because my novels are my babies that I have born into the world and raised up to be special and loved by everyone.
When someone tells me that my child has a problem, is at fault, is lacking, obnoxious, arrogant, poorly dressed or boring I become resentful and want to fight their accusers…even though they are right(most of the time).
My current work in progress, “The Valley,” includes this soldier, PFC Thad Kristofferson (“Cotton”) who serves as the narrator in a first-person peripheral narrative novel.
Welp, it didn’t go well. I won’t be self-publishing my book, “The Killing Climate.” So, now it’s on to a war novel entitled, “Valley of Slaughter.” The pitch for it goes like this.
“An elite rogue fighting force, named the Valhalla Unit, forms during the beginnings of the war on terror in 2002, when they begin fighting proxy wars according to their own honor code, under the leadership of an outcast chaplain named Hap Kennedy.”
May be I will start posting pieces of it as I write if there is enough interest from people following my blog. Let me hear from ya.
