I finished the novel I referred to in my previous post a few months ago, and have been self-editing it. I’m now seeking publication through traditional publishing, which involves looking for an agent at this point, who will then try to sell the book, and the series, to an editor at a publishing company. Since I’ve self-published another novel years ago, and have learned a lot of the ins and outs of the business of writing, I believe my work will be accepted.
I’m eager for this because I want to give you the best writing that’s out there. I’ve revamped my website here, and will continue to do so. I’m also starting a vlog, which will be posted on My YouTube Channel. So yes, you can see videos of me, which I will also post here on my site. Video is where it’s at. If this wasn’t the case YouTube would not have outgrown television in viewership now. I’ve also started an email list. Please sign up for it before you leave.
Briefly, this novel I wrote is the start of a series. The main character, Edward Carrington, is a computer genius. He comes up against many enemies, but ultimately he’s warring against a billionaire puppet master, Zadig Nazarian, and his deputies, whose legitimate business affairs give cover to a sinister world of hackers, thieves, and murders he employs. Carrington and his partner Russo travel the world to stop Nazarian’s nefarious plans, even to the point of putting their lives at risk. But justice must prevail.
The first book, which I’m calling Total Power, is about how Carrington got to be who he is. You have to start somewhere. Nazarian has been confident no one was smart enough to foil his plans. But will his confidence be shattered?
I titled this post “Not Just Another Thriller Series” because I believe this story is totally plausible. You won’t think you’re reading fiction. So no fictional presidents, countries, or parts where you say to yourself, Oh come on, this would never happen. Oh no. I also state this because usually thrillers involve the CIA or FBI. Not this time. I believe we have to move on from the CIA, because today it’s only partly relevant anymore. The government institution Carrington gets involved in is Cyber Command. This and the NSA are where the world is going more so each day.
With how the elite in the world are getting richer and more powerful, how regular people have fewer choices and less freedom, and how technology is enabling a vicious brood of international cyber criminals to have their will, only someone with great physical strength, fierce intelligence, and an unwavering mission of justice can try to stand in the way of evil. Can he withstand what Nazarian throws at him? Or will he pay dearly for fighting the superpower that means to eliminate his very existence?
