    Currently I'm about 2/3s of the way through writing "Foreign Enemies," the end of my Enemies trilogy. This section holds together pretty well on its own. It provides most of the background explanation behind the novel.

    oh - and by the way - this one also makes me sick to my stomach, because it's only about one percent off from where we actually are....great story!

    Wow.
    Good stuff.
    I've got a space saved next to the other two.
    Thanks for the update...


    Now get back to writing...;) :D (just kidding, of course)

    I read about the first 40% of the last book: it is better by far than the first two...which were pretty decent already.

    Matt, glad to hear it's coming along so well. Any idea on a publishing date? Just a ball park figure would be fine.

    Oh yeah. Right.

    Like I need a sneak preview to entice me into buying the third book.

    :cool:

    Enough with the teasing already. Get your butt back to writing.

    Have the first 2, anxiously awaiting the 3rd. Good reading is hard to find.

    hmmmmmm!

    book 1 yellow
    book 2 red
    book 3? I will guess green.

    and hurry the heck up.

    is the free Barrett 50BMG rifle offer with every book deal still on or has it expired? I know this was just for pre-orders made during Mrs Millers Third grade class in 1972 but I am pretty sure I had that in my order along with the James and the giant peach book.

    Rich K: I'm hoping for spring of 2009.

    Flynir: Foreign Enemies' cover will be sky blue.

    Thanks for the sneak preview. Haven't gotten to reading it yet, but I'm sure I'll enjoy it just like the first two. Looking forward to it's release.

    Excellent...time to go reread the first two books.

    Now we're going to have to wait a year until it comes out. UGH!

    Travis,

    There's nothing in the Constitution that states there are 9 justices. In fact, FDR threatened to pack the court if SCOTUS didn't start agreeing with his policies. You may want to remove that part about the amendment to have 12 justices.

    I did. I still know little about the book.
    I'd like to read the little lead-in that inevitably comes on the back of paperbacks.
    It does have one of those, doesn't it?
    EDIT: Found them.

    Sky blue, huh?

    As in Tidy Bowl blue helmets?

    Foreign enemies?

    I can't wait, I've read the other two books twice each. Great stuff!

    Yes indeed, as in sky blue helmets and berets. Invited in by our very own president.

    You know, depending on the upcoming election results, I could actually see this happening.

    If the election goes the wrong way, that is.
