What’s it about?

The first question most ask when I mention I wrote a book or they heard about it, “What’s it about?” It’s a natural question and even though I get a little tired of answering, I for sure have an answer.

Now, if we’re just passing by or I don’t think you actually care I’ll tell you it is an adventure fantasy story with lots of action and fighting to entertain. If I’m being honest, when I first set out to write a complete story, my goal was to entertain the reader. I figured, if I couldn’t keep a reader entertained, then whatever else the message may be would never matter. No one would finish the book. I’m happy to say, I feel I accomplished this task. So then, what is the story really about?

On the surface it is an adventure story. There is fighting and competition galore to entertain. This level keeps the pages turning and readers interested. A layer below that is a coming of age story. I didn’t realize it when I was writing but I wrote a bit of an autobiography. Durbar is young and without direction and part of the conflict is how this young man finds himself. But there is another layer connected to each. At the deepest level this story is about identity and how others view us versus how we view ourselves. This is why I introduce the “Sureshot” personae. The main character struggles between the mantel of hero that people place upon him and who he wants to be. Yeah, it’s deep.

I’m legitimately proud of the story. It’s well rounded, entertaining and multi-layered. For my first real effort, this is a solid story. I hope you read it and enjoy it as much as I do!

What about Sureshot Rises?

cover 4

Way back in 2001 I was on a temporary duty at Ft Carson Colorado. I had nothing to do to entertain myself so I purchased some paper and pens and began writing. The bulk of this story was written in those months. I finished it a couple of years later and then it was published in 2006. That experience was a disaster and because the publisher held the rights to the story, I never published the completed sequel to the story. With the rights returned to me and significant advances in technology, I decided to rewrite then republish the story. It turns out that I am a much better writer than I was over fifteen years ago so I felt it was appropriate to add some content and improve the content that existed. I am finally really proud of the product. The ending is much stronger and the story flows better. I have the sequel cued up so it should be available this summer. There is even a third book in the series that has a number of pages already completed. I finally feel like writing is a real part of what I do. Looking forward to much more.
