The Encounter Series (4).jpg

Taking a break from working on the manuscript for Book Two, NO MERCY, to give everyone an update. In July, we approved the final edit for Book Two of the Encounter Series - titled: NO MERCY.

When I have a release date for the eBook, I’ll post info about release date and Pre-Orders. My goal is to have NO MERCY ready this month. The book is shaping up well, and I know you’ll really enjoy it. There will be an eBook that will follow after we publish NO MERCY. When I have a release date for the eBook, I’ll let you know.

On a different note, we are working on Book Three! I have the title already selected. It will be called..."The Teflon Man." This action-packed book will be an exclusive look inside the world of the main character - Tyrone Street. And speaking of Street, those of you who bought and read, Book One, TWISTED will know that he plays an integral role in that book.

Tyrone Street returns in Book Two, NO MERCY along with new and more challenging characters!

I’m not going to give anything away, but you’re gonna love NO MERCY! And for those of you who haven’t read TWISTED, don’t let the awesome cover fool you. The story telling will astound you to the point where you won't want to put either book down.

Again, as soon as I have a release date for NO MERCY, I’ll post it on my blog, and my social media accounts, and send out an email campaign to our subscribers.

Gotta get back on the block. Take care, mask up & stay safe!

Finally, we are close to giving everyone what they are looking for..."The Release of No Mercy!" I know you're getting tired of hearing the same thing month after month but...


We have the completed cover design finished. We been spending this week in the final review process. We expect to get the entire project to the publisher the first week of August.

Keep an eye out as I will post an update when we get the confirmed publishing date. And with that, it's been long overdue...so we've completed the new website design and updated our purchase link to begin the Pre-Order process.

I can't say enough about the support I'm getting from fans through the country and especially in Arizona. Thank you for waiting patiently. We're excited that you're excited as the sequel to Twisted is, finally, close to a reality. We are confident that you will be amazed at all the stories within a story that will definitely keep you guessing at what's coming.

Meanwhile, I have to let everyone know that our character art has gone global. We've had to spend a lot of time vetting our new artists to make sure they meet expectations. If you hadn't heard before now, we have a new design artist that has joined our team. His name is Maulana Faris. He is a soon to be exchange student. He resides in the country of Indonesia and will be coming to America to complete his degree process.

This gritty sequel to Twisted will jolt your senses like no book you're every read or experienced. In the Encounter Series' Book 2 - NO MERCY, hit man, Hector Lassiter finds his life turned inside-out when SOF Director, Stephanie Taylor selects him as her full-time point man.

With an unknown stranger, his female accomplices and General Benson's rogue FBI agents, Smalls and Stone watching his every move, Lassiter sets out on a relentless, twisted pursuit, maneuvering his way in and out of reality when one moment people are people and the next...genetically engineered coyotes.

They transform with ease from one form to another.

And to make matters worse, Lassiter suspects SOF Director, Stephanie Taylor, could be one of the coyotes.
