It is hard to believe that it is January and I have been retired for 6 months. Usually at this time of the year, I am trying to figure out how to pass some seniors that just didn't make it because everyone has to pass. But, that's not my worry anymore.

Hawks Dilemma's cover is started and hopefully we will have before long and I will post it on my webpage, so keep looking for it.http://www.johnpoindexter.com/index.htm

"Jim Horton, Mike Phillips, and Steve Hawks have been together ever since Hawks was promoted to Field Director three years ago. This is the agency's trouble shooting team. They draw all the high-level cases traveling the world solving the problems that arise.

Hawks entered the subway train that arrived and headed for the next station hoping the stop would be the last. It wasn't his idea to pay the ransom, but the boss was dead set on it. Annie Patrick had been missing for a week before the ransom call came. The only reason Hawks and his team were involved was because her father had gone to school with their boss, Henry Jones.

As the train pulled into the 52nd street station, Hawks saw what he had been looking for at the other two stops, a dark skin oriental male wearing a red jacket leaning against the restroom wall appearing to be looking for someone."

Hawks Dilemma is a crime thriller about an agency under the control of only the president. Logline is:

Thrust into the unwanted leadership of the President's secret unit, Hawks must lead his agency while worrying about the female agent that he has fallen in love with.

One of the Beta Readers said, "Bear in mind I am just a reader and I read authors I like. You are maintaining my interest."

It seems the book must be worth something if they are keeping with it to read it all.

Now I need to get back on Hawks Revenge and get it finished.

Here the first page of a new story I am working on.  It is a Pat Michaels Detective Story.

 

                She opened her eyes to see Eric watching her. He smiled and slid his hand over her side onto her back. Pulling her closer, she could feel his welcome gift against her leg. He was in no hurry to leave and go to work, nor was she. They made love again just like they had during the night several times.

                The phone finally broke the tension and he swore. But she just kissed him again and let the phone ring. He started to reach for it and she said, “It’s mine, let it ring.”  So he did.

                It started again and this time, he said, “I think we need to answer that. It is getting late.”

                She looked at him and said, “Fine.”  She grabbed the phone and said hello.

                “Pat, you coming in today?” Julia said.

                “Why?”

                “Because you had a phone call and they want to meet with you.”

                “Okay, I will be there by eleven.” She hung up.

                “Work calls?” Eric said as he climbed out of bed.

                “I guess so.” She patted the bed. He smiled, leaned over and kissed her.

                “I need to go in too, he said. “They probably wonder why I am not there already.”

                “It seems that I may have a new client. Of course that is to be seen. The last one that came in wanted me to find their dog that was missing,” she said and climbed out of bed.

                “I’ll call you,” Eric said as Pat was heading for the shower.

                She stopped at the bathroom door to look at his six-foot five, hundred and eighty pound frame and thought wow, what a hunk.

                “Will I see you tonight?” she said.

                “Maybe.” He smiled and closed the door.

                Sergeant Eric Brown wasn’t worried about being late for work. Detectives could come and go as they pleased, and he was quite pleased this morning. Patricia Michaels owns her own detective agency, so she too could go in whenever it pleases her. But, she was quite pleased by him this morning.  Now she would have to see what this new case could be about and hoped it was worth taking on.

Sadie sat across the desk looking at the piles of reports from the tape recordings of last night's operation. She seemed to be deep in thought, but raised her head and smiled at Hawks. He decided to go for a walk and get some fresh air.

While walking down the street, Hawks tried to figure out how he could have fallen in love with one of his field directors.

“Listen to me, trying to talk myself out of loving a great woman, one that knows my job and understands,” he said aloud.

Most of the agents were divorced two or three times, simply because their wives didn't understand the job they had. Hawks has a woman that knows exactly what his responsibilities are. Obviously she can live with them, because hers are the same.

But what kind of life would we have, he thought miserably, me in Washington and her here in California?

Then he thought he heard someone call his name, but as he looked around all he could see was a crowd of people walking in every which way.

He headed on down the street wondering how this relationship would work. The next thing he knew, someone was pulling on his arm. He turned to see Sadie looking at him with a very nasty snarl on her face.

"Just what do you think you're doing?" Sadie snapped. "I saw the look on your face as you left the office."

"I noticed you were reading reports and decided to go for a walk," he said, looking confused.

"Well, did you think I was going to let you talk yourself out of our relationship?" she asked, putting her hands on her hips. "I know how you are. You take walks to figure out how to do something. If it's our relationship that you're worried about, it'll work. I love you damn it," she said with a hurt look in her eyes.

"What gave you the idea that I take walks to figure out things?" he asked, surprised that anyone had paid his actions any notice.

"When Mike came in, he told me that you told the secretary you were taking a walk. He also said you took walks only to figure out something," she stated abruptly.

He looked at her a moment, trying to figure out how to tell her what he'd been thinking. "Let's walk on down here," he said as he took her arm and held her close.

They walked to a little park and sat on a bench and didn't speak to each other for quite some time.

Finally he said, "I don't know what to do about the problem of you being on the west coast and me on the east coast."

"That'll be no problem," she said smiling. "I can always transfer to headquarters and take a position there. All I want is you," she said, and rested her head on his shoulder. "If needed, I'll quit my job and then there'll be no problems at all," she whispered.

They sat there quietly for a while. He took her hand and said, "I love you and don't want to lose you." She kissed him.

Until Next Time,

Sorry it has been so long, but this last month has been both sorrowful and somewhat productive.

We lost my wife’s mother a few weeks ago and it has been hard on everyone. The memories never go away and we will keep them fresh in our mind forever.

On the production side, I received the novel back from the Beta Reader, with very few concerns.

The most positive thing said was, “Bear in mind I am just a reader and I read authors I like. You are maintaining my interest. “

At least I know it is not boring and kept them reading. Now to fix the few things they suggested with time shifts and it will be ready to go.

The Book Cover is in development, but will take some time as we want it perfect.

It is called Hawks’ Dilemma. Here is a logline I am working with:

Thrust into the unwanted leadership of the President's secret unit, Hawks must lead his agency while worrying about the female agent that he has fallen in love with.

A bigger description is:

Hawks' Dilemma is the first in a series of action-crime novels in which Steve Hawks (POV), Director of the Espionage and Terrorist Bureau, must face several investigations, including his new wife being kidnapped, all at the same time. This causes a dilemma for Hawks because he is pressured by his boss, the President of United States, to work on only one investigation dealing with a senator’s son.

I am now starting to edit the second one in this series. Here is line describing it:

Deadly Revenge is the second in a series of action-crime novels in which Steve Hawks (POV), Director of the Espionage and Terrorist Bureau, is directed by the President of the U.S. to enter the war against the Drug Cartel. This causes Hawks more problems, especially when his wife goes missing at sea.

Okay, what are you up to?  Are you going to do the novel challenge in November?

It has been over a week since I retired, even though it just feels like summer vacation. I will realize it truly when August gets here and I am not going back to work. We attended our granddaugther's graduation and then the party last Sunday. Both were nice events.

I have finished re-writing one of the novels from first-person to third-person. Now I need to do a final editing to make sure there are no plots holes, grammar errors, or anything else that may be wrong with it, before I send it to a Beta reader.

I still have another complete one to re-write and a third one to finish. There may be even a fourth one somewhere on this computer waiting for more action to take place with it. I know there is another story based off She Rises at Dawn (eBook listed below) that I started but have not finished.

I went fishing last week with my oldest son and only caught a headache, no fish. I guess we will be doing that again sometime in the near future. Only this time I hope to catch fish instead of a headache.

Why not leave a message down below and let us all know what your plans for the summer are?  Will you be doing any fishing and if so, where?

We would enjoy reading about you and what is going on in your life.

See you next time,
John
