Thanks!

I remember reading The Zone a couple months ago...think I received it as part of a bundle/book collection but don't recall. Great book regardless.

Didn't pick up that you had others out there, but just grabbed them for my kindle...if they're as good as The Zone I'm in for a great ride! Cold wet day that'll be spent indoors today and now I have something to read!

I hope you enjoy them!

If you like 'em, a review would be deeply appreciated-I sell a good number of books but getting reviewing is like sifting for gold.

BTW, didn't get to start YGAT book 1 until last night but about 1/3 of the way through it and loving it! The first couple of pages had me scratching my head wondering WTF was going on but it fell into place nicely...and quickly!

Will try to do a review tonight...

Yeah, I struggled with the beginning for quite a while-I knew what I wanted, but getting it sorted out took several efforts.

Actually, writing for me is kind of obsessive; not a day goes by without writing, editing, or doing background work.

To date, ten novels, over one million words in print!

Now if obsession could only translate into ability.... :wink:

Finished YGAT book 2 yesterday... :(

As I watched the % count climb on my Kindle, I actually tried to read slower to keep the story going! Nice job on this series...seriously. Edit: Left reviews for both!

How long until book 3? :awesome:

You're too kind. Thank you!

As to #3, it will usually take 90-100 days to hammer out the rough draft, followed by 30-40 days of various edits, value arguments, and getting the cover sorted out. Before all that starts I have to nail down my hook and plotline. Currently, I have the hook but not the plotline.

SPOILER ALERT!

--------------------











You could have the team head to GA to track the core evil folks...and maybe then head to Europe for the next book?

Maybe tie this series to your first book?
