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?
