Hey you GTing writers...just wanted to give you an update... My second book "Holding the Line" is now at my publishers and scheduled for production in September. Pretty excited except now is the hard part....waiting. Of course my first novel "Crossing the Line" is still selling and you here at Glocktalk can get it for 20% off!!!! (Sorry gotta market)) Keep writing and keep us posted with your work.!!

Cool. I still have to get around to ordering the first so I have some understanding of what's going on in the sequel. :upeyes:

Hi Sgt.,

How difficult was it for you to get the first one published? And how much easier on the second?

Also, how hard was it to plot out the first, versus the second?

Are their plans for a third? Or will it become a series? That would be very cool. If I have any success with my first novel, I would definately want to turn it into a full series. I'm constantly creating ideas that can't be worked into my current novel, so I write 'em down for future usage.

Funny story on the publishing....I'll PM you on that. As far as the plot, its what I call "reality based" fiction. Between current events, my job training (law enforcement), and my imagination..it was actually easy and flowed much better than I thought. The sequel is a direct continuation of the first book. Its a border war/invasion story. Very real characters, very real concept. The second book is a MUCH better work both story wise and in a literary sense. Writing truly is a learning experience.

I'm about halfway through your book. Very good, so far and very realistic and believable. I'll definitely get the second.

Just got my first proof from the editors. It looks like late Feb. Early March for a release date. This cover isn't exactly as it will be but very close. Just thought I'd updated.
