I just thought I would post a note to my readers that I haven't forgotten you and am working on a new story. I am also looking for some assistance.
The new story is titled "The Grim Reaper" and will be about a young man over two decades, from the mid-90s through current times. This is not going to be anything at all like "A Fresh Start", but it should be interesting. I am keeping it much more R-rated than many of my previous stories. The hero of the story is decidedly a hero, but fairly low key. He won't be using time-travel superpowers to end up ruling the world. He's just a fairly average kid who grows up to be a fairly average guy.
I do need some assistance. A portion of the story involves the war in Iraq. If you were in the Army, preferably as enlisted (but that is not required) and were in Iraq at any time in the period of 2003-2007, I would dearly love to hear from you. Even if you weren't in Iraq, but went through basic training at that time, or were stationed at Fort Drum, I want to hear also. This would be immensely helpful. If you have read my stuff, you know I value accuracy in what I write. It's always the little things that trip a writer up and make people not enjoy the story.
On a final note, I just want to remind everybody that "A Fresh Start" is listed on both Lulu & Kindle in an R-rated version, at a very reasonable price. It's Christmas, so buy a copy for a friend! As soon as the real-life Marilyn gives me her Christmas list, I need to start buying!
Thanks for the assistance!
