Although I am most known for my Team 3 Navy SEAL Brotherhood stories, I've begun a new venture involving SEAL Team 5, writing shorts for Bella Andre's Kindle World: Game For Love. So, while I complete Book 8 of my SEAL Brotherhood, SEAL's Promise, I am creating a whole new world around Team 5 for readers of Bella's dynamic worlds. My part will be a serial of three novellas that will end with a hard Happily Ever After in: The Beautiful Game: SEAL's Goal, SEAL's Challenge and SEAL's Score. This storyline is about a professional goalkeeper who comes home to bury his best friend since childhood, who has died on a mission as a Navy SEAL. Patrick Harrington decides to give up his lusty soccer player lifestyle to pursue the career his best friend had. The series will chronicle this journey, as he pursues the love of his childhood sweetheart, who was also the fiance of his fallen best friend.
I've been prolific this year. I've also traveled, attended more conferences than I should have, meeting wonderful fans and aspiring writers. All 11 of my books are now out in audio format. The boxed sets have increased my readership base through collaboration with other authors.
The industry is about to change again. Seems like just as we get used to one aspect of it, another comes along. One thing is for sure, being out there in the public with multiple books in series, released close together, whether in a collaboration with other writers, or our own work, is smart. Writing short or long, having dynamic book trailers or audio books, expanding street teams and social media, trying new venues like podcasting and video readings, blogging and showing up for Facebook parties, are all part of a successful writer's daily bread.
But it's still about the story. Fortunate for me, the more I write, the more stories I come up with. Here's the book trailer from my latest release, SEAL Of My Heart. We are completing the audio version of this book this week. The eBook and print versions are available now. Audio will become available mid September. Enjoy:

Okay, now back to the beach and my SEAL Team 3. I gotta get this baby born and on to their Happily Ever After so I can begin the next in The Beautiful Game.
Life is one fool thing after another.
Love is two fool things after each other.
