Tara Neale is proud to announce…It’s a book!
No, seriously, my Sergeant Mike Miracle Tour series that I began four years ago Lit with award winning Red, White and Blue Halloween has always been more a labor of love for me than any other of my writing. If you have not read these stories, they are a marked departure from my spicy erotica.
The first book in the series, My Country Tis of Thee, made it as high as number 14 in the Free Military Fiction category at Amazon in July. It has seven rating and a perfect 5 star score. If you have not read it yet, it will be FREE at Amazon this Friday and Saturday.
But that is not what I want to talk about…that is my new baby Labor’s End, Book 2 in the series. I have spent the past month working on it. I had actually tried twice before…only to lose everything I had written (about 10K words each time) when files got corrupted or computers went kaput. This time I was determined to persevere and with help from my fabulous editor Jim the Brit and my beta reader Anne A. Lois, I did. Though admittedly, some of my motivation is doing justice to the struggles of my very own Mike.
And today I am proud to announce…Labor’s End is live at Amazon…
Master Sergeant Michael O’Malley is a man on a mission. After over twenty years in the US Marine Corps and more tours of duty than he wants to remember, his retirement plans are simple: hop on the back of his brand new Harley and tour the country, checking in on the men and women that he served with…and the families of the ones that never made it back.
Honour, Oklahoma is Mike’s second stop on this tour of duty as he stands in for the best friend that he lost over twenty years ago. The man’s father is dying and though he remembers neither Mike nor his dead son, he feels duty bound to be there for the man since the son that died in Mike’s arms could not be.
WARNING: This book deals with strong adult content of PTSD. It attempts to do so both compassionately and realistically. Please be aware that it could trigger strong emotions, especially in those with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
To celebrate, I am giving away five copies to the first people to shout out…and promise to review at Amazon. Ready, get set and go, folks!
