I’ve been getting a lot of questions about when the novel is coming out so I thought I would bring everyone up to speed… First off, thank you for your interest in the book and your patience with me in releasing it! I started writing Target Deck over the summer. I had the plot in my head and worked furiously to complete the draft before the school year began. Then I spent the next six months editing, revising, re-writing, working with the cover artist, having people proof read it, more editing, you get the idea. All the while working on numerous projects for SOFREP, having a family, and being a full time student means I end up doing a juggling act. However, I wanted to do this novel the right way and not put out a half assed product so it was worth taking the extra time on these things.
Below is the finalized version of the cover for Target Deck:
Marc Lee also did an amazing wrap around cover for the paperback edition so I’m really looking forward to that! As of about thirty minutes ago I submitted the final cover for the paperback edition to CreateSpace so it will take them a day or two to review it and get back to me. If everything is good to go, I then order a proof copy to review and bless off on. Then the book goes live. The Kindle Edition is just waiting for me to pull the trigger but I want to release the paperback and Kindle version in tandem. What does all this mean? Target Deck will probably be released the first week of January. I will keep you up to speed and readers of this blog and my facebook feed will be the first to know when the book comes out.
Also, the title for book three will be “Direct Action” and will be the most dangerous mission of Deckard’s career. More to follow on that.
*Update* Text files and cover files got the green light and I just ordered the proof copy. Unless something is really wrong, we should be cleared hot for a January 1st publication date.
