Wow! A Wonderful Readers’ Response to Montagnard!

I am absolutely humbled by the positive response to Montagnard! I wish to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of you who have purchased it and then took a minute to let me know what you thought after reading it. I have gotten feedback via reviews, emails, text messages, Twitter, Instagram, Parler, and even in-person.

I thought I would share a few of the comments from some of my readers so far:

“Great, great, great, great, great book!”

The original Joe Palazzolo

“The Bangkok bar, Obsession, is a hoot.”

Lee Boyland, Award Winning Author

“Every time you described Ajax and “a thump of his tail” it made me grin.”

Eric Ewald

“I enjoyed how he brought to life the Montagnard people and how they existed after the Vietnam war.”

Glyn Haynie, Author of Return To The Madness

“I was more taken with a couple of threads of the story that hinted toward redemptive outcomes after such scenes of human despair left behind after the Americans pulled out of SE Asia.”

Joy Neal Kidney, Author of Leora’s Letters

“Congratulations! It’s an excellent read!”

Carol Piser

“Action thriller lovers will hate to miss this one.”

The Prairies Book Review

“The book is fantastic!”

Beth Kallman Werner, AuthorThat iConnections

“Enjoying the book, very much.”

Martha Knapp

Highly recommended. Not only compelling and well-written, but also chock-full of really interesting stuff.

B V Miller

“Started reading today. 5 chapters in. As I expected … I am enjoying it.”

Danny S. Smith, Attorney

Anyway, you get the drift. Much more would be shameless self-promotion, right?

And just a quick reminder for those who have read Montagnard and enjoyed it. Reviews are essential to a new author like me. Please take a minute to give Montagnard a review on Amazon.com. Just please be honest. Here is the link to the book. Just scroll down until you see the button to Write a customer review.

If you have not read it yet, I really think you will love it!

While it is is undoubtedly an action and adventure tale, it is so much more than that. Montagnard is a story that begins in the highlands of Vietnam, circles through Africa, the Middle East, and Thailand before returning to Vietnam. Threads of bravery, valor, honor, comradeship, revenge, and love wind through its pages, interspersed with realistic combat and martial arts scenes. But it is also a tale of love, family, and perhaps, even redemption.

I will say thank you in advance.

And, I hope you will take a few minutes and check out some of my other blog posts by clicking here! And please, if you haven’t already, check out my new novel, Montagnard, on Amazon.com!

Book Signing at McKay’s Books in Knoxville!

My Very First Book Signing …

Five Star Review book signingHello friends! I will be having my very first book signing on Tuesday, February 27th, from 12:00 to 3:00 pm at McKay’s Books in Knoxville, Tennessee. This is pretty exciting! It is a lot of work establishing yourself and getting your name out there. Every little bit certainly helps. If you are out and about during this time period, I hope you will stop by and say hello!  And, maybe … even buy a book.  I will have both paperbacks and hardcovers available.  I will also have a sample chapter from my upcoming sequel. Please let your friends, family, and even acquaintances know …

Currently Available At …

Serpents Underfoot is currently available in paperback, hardcover, and Kindle versions on Amazon.com. It is now also available online from Barnes and Noble and Books-A-Million.  I guess it takes a lot of work to actually get a book on the shelf in the brick and mortar stores, but I am working on it!  I am also working to get it out on Audible, iTunes, and other media outlets.

Montagnard

Now I am busy working on the sequel to Serpents Underfoot.  I don’t want to put any spoilers in here, but it will involve a return to Vietnam, more Navy SEAL action, and some interesting twists and turns. It will be an interesting story … a lot of history, excitement, and of course … new adventures for JD Cordell and his faithful K9 partner, Ajax!  The research has been interesting. Because of their support of the American forces fighting in Vietnam, the Montagnard people were nearly wiped out by the communist government after the War. I have found that there is quite a large group of Montagnard folks that were resettled in the United States after the war and are now living near Cary here in North Carolina.
