For those of you who haven’t figured it out yet…yes, I’m stalling. I’m eagerly awaiting the cover art for my new book, having arrived at the finish line a little earlier than expected.
I had contemplated writing a post about the dumbshit tailing me (5 feet back…not kidding) along Interstate 95 for twenty minutes…I used cruise control to slow my car down to 48 mph before he finally broke out of his iPhone haze, and realized he was moving along 25 mph slower than the rest of traffic on 95. I didn’t care. I figured if anyone was going to get rear ended, it would be him. Just in case your curious, I did this to him twice. I sped passed him when he finally went around me (head buried in iPhone), and again slowed him to 49mph in a gradual five minute attempt to drive him crazy. No such luck. Twitter must have been engrossing. I was about to take a picture of his car and license plate for a chat with the state police, but I realized my use of the phone would have broken Maine’s new “no texting” law (prohibits any use of electronic devices for anything but phone calls), and I would have been incriminating myself. Instead, I passed him, and hoped for some sign of an explosion in my rear view mirror. Nothing. Oh well.
Since everyone is being extremely patient, I thought I’d post a sample from the next book in the Black Flagged series, Black Flagged: Beginnings. Preliminary name, so don’t get critical just yet. I have a rough map of how the book will play out, but not enough to ink a story line. This scene is a flashback, more background depth into Black Flagged’s main character, Daniel Petrovich (aka Marko Resja). I’ll reach back in this book and show you how he was recruited and trained…more importantly, you’ll see exactly what the Black Flag program trains it’s operatives to endure and overcome. Not for the weak heart. Enjoy this bonus sample, as I try to figure out what else I can do to stall at 4:30 in the morning.
