Last week, I reached the 10,000 word point in writing HOMELAND, the new and seventh novel in the Justin Hall series. I’m now on chapter three and the storyline has moved from eastern Kenya and northern Yemen to Toronto. Justin will be meeting with one of this contacts, and will receive some sensitive yet explosive intelligence. If everything goes well, HOMELAND will be released in late July or early August of this summer.
However, if you’d like to become a beta reader, you can start enjoying this spy thriller in late April or early May. I will send you the chapters in progress as I’m writing and editing them, and you can let me know your thoughts about the military and other tactical aspects of the operations covered in the book. Or you can provide me your feedback on the pace of the plot, the overall feel of the story, character development, their actions and behavior, how you find the dialogue, in short anything you may think will make the story better. If this is something you may be interested in, please drop me a note at my personal e-mail account, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Word of mouth is vital so my books can reach more people. So please take a moment to talk to a friend, drop an e-mail to a loved one or a relative who enjoys spy thrillers, or share the news about my works on your social media, Facebook, Twitter, and wherever you have an Internet presence.
