The Crown’s Vengeance

December 12, 2012

I’ve been away for a few weeks now. Not ignoring anyone at all, but slaving away to get my new novel ready for release. It’s a sequel to A Patriot’s Betrayal, featuring some familiar characters and jam-packed with the same formula of action and exploration that set the tone for its predecessor.

I debated on the title, as I wanted something to reflect the content while enticing some of those readers who are not yet familiar with my work to take a longer look. A Crown’s Vengeance is set several months after the conclusion of APB, and again follows the exploits of Parker Chase. This time Parker finds himself a little more useful than before, as the story is set amidst the backdrop of a topic with which we’re all familiar. The financial crisis.

Now I  know you’re going to say “Wait a second. Isn’t the economy actually growing? You missed the boat!” To that, I say read the book. Not to give anything away, but this novel addresses an aspect of financial reform that is ongoing and completely relevant. I’ve read some of the recent works that delve into economic disasters, and this book is completely different in the avenues that are explored. You won’t be re-reading anything that you’ve seen before, I promise.

Not only do Parker and Erika Carr quickly find themselves neck-deep in a steaming pile of trouble, what they experience and uncover will both educate the reader and open their eyes to the tenuous nature of our financial system. The crisis that is explored is far from fiction. It could actually happen, and the scary part is that there is precious little stopping this story from jumping into the headlines.

Anyway, I’m freaking pumped to get this out there. The Crown’s Vengeance will be out before Christmas, just in time for everyone to download a whole bunch of copies or buy a hardback for 20 of your closest friends. It is the holidays, after all, and I need to buy eggnog. Whiskey flavored, of course.

I’ll be updating the sales experiment (dropped APB to $2.99 from $3.99) soon. I don’t check sales figures daily, so I really have no idea what kind of effect it had on sales. I’m not driving around a solid gold Bentley, so it hasn’t been as earth-shattering as I’d hoped. Nevertheless, onward we go.

Thanks for stopping by, and keep an eye out for the upcoming sequel. I’m excited to share it with everyone.
