My first effort is an action/adventure novel titled “ZERO POINT,” http://bit.ly/GHBBrb a novel that blends science with fast paced action. I’ve been told by a few readers that it reads like a Tom Clancy or Clive Cussler story, which is fine by me. I’ve read those authors and others in that genre for many years now.
The work on my novel started in 2008 after my retirement whereas I finally discovered I now had plenty of time to accomplish what I had dreamed of doing for many years. Having a career and raising a family had left little time for writing in my world, so now…there was nothing to stop me other than myself plus the arduous, and intimidating process of finding a publisher to print my work of art… (at least in my eyes anyway.)
story in getting published is probably different from mine, but I hope this encourages others to look at all options and not give up on your dream of writing. Recently I submitted Zero Point, http://amzn.to/HY93WV along with twenty-five other authors, in the Clive Cussler Adventure Writer’s Competition. It was well worth it! I made it to the top five finalists. The winner will be announced at the Clive Cussler Collectors Society convention which will be held October 6th, 2012 in Phoenix, AZ.
I am currently working on the next in my Josh Turner series: The Toba Element. Hopefully my target date is set for Jan. 2013. After the end of the world, of course.:-)
