Blood Ocean - Ready for Prime Time


Blood Ocean. Today I get to do something brilliant. I get to move the folder for my novel for Blood Ocean from the Books-Working folder to the Books-Finished folder, where it joins 16 other books.

Abaddon's edits made it a better novel. The sentences are tough and furious. They punch and jab. This is my most action oriented novel. But with that said, I didn't lose any of the characterizations I'm normally known for. You are going to love the transvestite Filipina heroine, the Hawaiian warrior kids, the drunken Russian sub captain and the wizened sky winker named Tim Lebbon, but who goes by Leb.

This is a good one. I can't wait for you to read it.

Here's Abaddon's page for the book.

Now we're just waiting for Prime Time.
