Subtle Change in Book Titles . . .


One of my friends asked me about the names “Field Piece, Part I: Tehran” and “Field Piece, Part II: Azerbaijan” — specifically why I called them “parts”. That implied to her that you needed both “parts” to make a story.  She suggested I change “part” to “book”.  I realized she was right and renamed the books “Field Piece, Book I: Tehran” and “Field Piece, Book II: Azerbaijan”.  They stand alone as full-fledged adventures.

You can read the two books separately and enjoy them (I hope).  However, if you think you might be reading both books, Book I happens in 1995 and Book II happens two years later, when Walker returns to Iran on another mission, so you’d want to read them in order.  But then you could just buy “Field Piece, The Complete Series” instead and save some money.

Many of the characters appearing in Book I are also in Book II, including, of course, our hero, Steve Walker.  Walker’s friend from graduate school, Pasdaran Colonel Kamal Taleb, shows up again, along with his brash younger brother, Massoud, and the femme fatale Jilah, who became much more than Walker’s friend in Book I . . . can’t tell you much more without some spoilers, so I’ll leave it at that.

NOTE: In a few days “Field Piece, Book I: Tehran”, and “Death on Delivery”, my mystery story about programmers being murdered on an IT project, will both be on sale on Amazon for only 99¢ each.  I’ll let you know when that happens.

Thanks for reading,

Special Book Deal on Amazon


Constant blog reader will already know that my wife (Noelle Frances Ferry) is also an author, but of books much different from my military thriller (Field Piece) and my detective novel (Death on Delivery). Where my books are more shoot-’em-up, knock-’em-down, Noelle’s novels deal more with male-female conflicting agendas, emotionally, romantically, and sometimes physically.  Yup.  Chick Lit. But that’s OK.  I enjoy reading her novels too.  You have to watch out though, that you don’t gain weight while you read one of Noelle’s books. Lot’s of tempting meals and snacks surrounding those plot points!

Noelle’s novel, A Time Too Long, Part 1: Changing Tides, is on sale for just $0.99 on Amazon Kindle from June 11 through June 17. The heroine, Nadine, has finally left her abusive and cheating husband Gavin after 20+ years and is trying to reinvent her life, with no help from her mother and aunt I might add. She borrows her husband’s tricked out pickup truck to transport her meager items to her new rented basement room, and the next morning the truck is gone — stolen in the night.  Not her fault, but Gavin is not happy to say the least.

Skirt-chasing Gavin somehow feels that he is the victim in this breakup, and vows revenge on Nadine. Then he finds out that she is frequently accompanied by a hunk ex-Marine who is merely her exercise partner, right? The divorce papers show up next, and Gavin flips out.

Will Nadine ever sleep with the ex-Marine? Will the ill-fated pickup truck ever be found? Will psycho Gavin kill Nadine before she can gain the life that she deserves? The answers to these questions, and more, in A Time Too Long.

If you enjoy this book, please review it on Amazon so others will know it’s a fun (but suspenseful) read. And remember, we are not responsible for any weight that you might gain while reading the book.
