ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Weston Ochse is a former intelligence officer and special operations soldier who has engaged enemy combatants, terrorists, narco smugglers, and human traffickers. His personal war stories include performing humanitarian operations over Bangladesh, being deployed to Afghanistan, and a near miss being cannibalized in Papua New Guinea. His fiction and non-fiction has been praised by USA Today, The Atlantic, The New York Post, The Financial Times of London, and Publishers Weekly. The American Library Association labeled him one of the Major Horror Authors of the 21st Century. His work has also won the Bram Stoker Award, been nominated for the Pushcart Prize, and won multiple New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards. A writer of more than 26 books in multiple genres, his military supernatural series SEAL Team 666 has been optioned to be a movie starring Dwayne Johnson. His military sci fi series, which starts with Grunt Life, has been praised for its PTSD-positive depiction of soldiers at peace and at war. Weston likes to be called a chaotic good paladin and challenges anyone to disagree. After all, no one can really stand a goody two-shoes lawful good character. They can be so annoying. It's so much more fun to be chaotic, even when you're striving to save the world. You can argue with him about this and other things online at Living Dangerously or on Facebook at Badasswriter.

GRUNT LIFE Contest (Ending 5 May)

Reactions:  
GRUNT LIFE CONTEST: 

Here's how it works. 

To enter the contest, take a picture of the book and post it to your FB page or Twitter account and tag me (make sure to tag me so I know. I'll have to approve the tag if it's on FB, so don't worry if it doesn't appear on my page right away). Pictures can be boring or exciting. I especially love bookstore pics and pics with weapons, but not combined (this means don't go taking an AK 47 to a book store and say that Wes told you to). 

The contest runs from 26 April to 5 May. 

What do you get, you ask? You mean besides a cool ass book? For the winner, a person randomly chosen from all the entrants, I will have a cell phone case made just like this one to fit their cell phone. Then I will sign it and have a platoon of grunts deliver it to their door -- or the UPS man. This is a chance to have fun and to get people interested. Thanks peoples! I'll repost this every day to remind people.

Here are some of the entrants thusfar (but not all)...
