I have an assignment for you

  So after writing my first book, I kinda made it a goal that in every book after the first I was going to create a story line that made people cry. As a result, this second book has been “field tested” by a few people now. Two of them told me they had a “strong emotional response,” the third seriously cried. So it looks to me like I am well on my way to accomplishing my goal.

   So here’s the deal. This video’s words are perfect for the troubles and trials of Captain John Becker in Fading StarLight. So pay close attention, like always to the words of this song. And after you get your copy and read it in a few days. Come on back to the Wingate Chronicles facebook page and let us all know what you thought of the book.

FAKE

Good morning everyone, I wanted to warn you about a scam going around involving my book “Age of Shadows.”

A friend notified me of two YouTube websites offering my book for free. After a little research here is what I found. The person who is doing this is building very short videos of many books designed to direct to a website. From my research it seems this website is doing some “Data Mining.”

The website, “lilplay.com,” is owned by Double Groove and both of them seem to have a history of being scams according to what I found. Also, if you follow out the links on Double Groove they will lead you to, “Scambook.com” and scam book is also listed by many as a scam.

It would seem, according to the stories I have read, these places have taken credit card numbers from people, charged them for books and games never received. And have up loaded malware onto peoples computers.

So… if you’re looking for something free from them, then do so at your own risk.

Here are just a few of the websites I found concerning this.

Update 11.29.2015

As most of you know, I finally finished the rough draft of book four. It was surprising to me to see how many times, I had to go all the way back to book two. And re-write parts of it to fit with book four.

Then, because I am highly considering a new book series after Wingate. Using some of the same people. I found, I had to go back and re-write book two again.

Therefore, I am personally very surprised to find out that book number two, “Fading Starlight.” Just how pivotal this book will be to the overall story that I am building.

When will it be done?

Good question. As a struggling new author, I need to balance everything to get this project done. I just got done with a long fight with Amazon to get the Ebook for Age of Shadows done. That was the result of bad advice from the start.

As a new author, there never seems to be enough money or skilled people at the time you need them to get it done. So, I am going to cautiously put a print date for Wingate Chronicles, Fading Starlight. Sometime in late January of 2016.

Thank you to everyone who bought the book or Ebook, every dollar helps.

If you wish to help out. Then consider giving Age of Shadows as a Christmas gift this year at a reduced price. Just add your email address in the box at the top of the Wingate Chronicles website. And I will email you all the information you need to order as many copies as you would like at 50 percent off.
