So, Kindle Direct Publishing recently instituted Kindle pre-orders for independent publishers. This means that at least for the electronic versions, I can actually set a release date. While a little bit further out would probably help more, I’m still figuring this out, and I’m sure some of you (based on some of the comments I’ve been getting) are getting a little impatient. So, without further ado, the pre-order for the Kindle edition of Alone and Unafraid is live. It will release on August 26th. I’m hoping to have the paperback out then as well, give or take a day; we’ll have to see how the proof comes out. The pre-order page: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MVWR67U This book will also be enrolled in Kindle Matchbook, meaning that if you buy the paperback (once it’s out, obviously), you can get the Kindle version at a reduced price.
You may notice that the Gear and Signed Books pages are no longer to be found on WordPress. They have officially been moved to a new site, which allows for better inventory control and shipping (especially international shipping). In short, it’s much better for e-commerce. Head over and take a look by either clicking on the new link to the right or following this link: www.americanpraetorians.weebly.com. You can pre-order your signed copy of Alone and Unafraid there now!
First things first; we have a cover. Still a work in progress, but it’s pretty close to finalized at this point. My friend Dave Reeder has also posted his early review of the book to RECOIL’s website: http://www.recoilweb.com/alone-and-unafraid-48467.html
“You know,” Black said as I walked into his small room/cell, “if you’d taken me along it could have worked out a lot simpler. I could have gotten us in as Project contractors, then we could have either started schwacking ‘em from the inside, or walked out if it was too hot. You guys keep up this kinetic door-kicking shit and there aren’t going to be many of you left before long.” I studied him impassively. Unfortunately, he had a point. I just hated to hear it from a guy who had been paid to support our sworn enemies. “What’s your deal, Black?” I asked. “We capture you fighting with ISIS, but now you want to be all buddy-buddy?” He spread his hands. “Put yourself in my shoes. Not only do I finally get offered work—and you guys should know how hard that is to come by these days—but it’s a chance to deal some hurt to some real bad guys. We got to see some really scary shit intel-wise about what the IRGC is up to. Hezbollah moving CBRN materials into the US from Mexico, nuclear and missile deals with not only North Korea but the Russians and Chinese,
