Flank Hawk Audio Book Update


As a few folks have contacted me about the audio version of Flank Hawk being released I figured I'd briefly address it here.

After exchanging a few emails with my publisher, the reading of the book is complete. It's being edited and put together. There isn't an exact release date yet. I'll post more information when it's available.

Writing a Sequel: My Guest Blog at Indie Book Blog

If you have a moment or two, click on over to the Indie Book Blog where I discuss how I learned to write a sequel (Blood Sword).

It was tricky (at least for me) writing the second novel as a standalone while complementing Flank Hawk, the first novel in the First Civilization's Legacy series.

Conan the Destroyer

I know this movie has detractors, but really, I enjoyed Conan the Destroyer when it first came out and enjoy popping it in the DVD player on occasion.

Fun, action adventure that doesn't try to take itself too seriously.

Woolly Mammoth: Cloned from Bone Marrow, possibly within 5 Years

Came across this article where it discusses undamaged mammoth DNA obtain in Siberia through a recently discovered thigh bone: Woolly mammoth to be brought back to life from cloned bone marrow 'within five years'

Apparently finding the necessary undamaged DNA has finally been achieved, so Russian and Japanese scientists are working to make the Woolly Mammoth no longer an extinct species.

I think it's pretty cool.
