"Wohoo! Who's up for round two!....oh, tell the kid to be more careful."

 Wherein Jack did a thing

 Several things

 First...no let's not do that. Because if I start with a first I will have to do a second and third and usually I get off track before I reach second.

 I don't know where to begin. 

 Writing is picking up. I am working on several projects at the moment, just having trouble starting an editing project. I want to polish up So Much Owed and send it off to my publisher, but I have this block in front of me. A fear, or....naw, it's a fear. I really admire the Tuskegee Airmen and fear I am ruining my story of them. 

 To keep myself motivated, and challenged, I am writing with different methods. I am writing today's Title Reveal entirely on my typewriter. Another new project will, for the most part, be written with quill and ink. And a third project will be written the un-creative way, on my computer.

 Okay, now that I got your attention to listen to that update of sorts.....ARE YOU READY?

 FOR WHAT?

 TO POP!

 POP....oh wait, wrong readiness.

 Here, I shall be nice.


 Blurb:  Growing up they never played Cowboys and Indians but Soldiers and Doctors.

 Hunter and Colt West grew up in the back hills of the Ozarks, hearing stories of a war far away in a place called Vietnam. Though different from each other, the brothers are as close as brothers can get and spend all their time together.

 Hunter works to become a doctor while Dean spends his days dreaming of the day he can join the army like his dad and uncle did. Colt's only fear, that the war will be over by the time he is old enough to join. It comes as no surprise to Hunter that on Colt's 18th birthday he signs up to fight in Vietnam.

 Though they've never been apart, the brothers prepare for an overseas separation. During their farewell things go terribly wrong and Hunter's rash actions make Colt an enemy of his commanding officer. When Colt makes it to basic the officer makes his life a living nightmare, a nightmare which follows him all the way to Vietnam and the nightmare which is called the war there.

 Skilled as a sniper, Colt's missions are already dangerous. But when his officer seeks revenge Colt is taken prisoner, where chances of survival are slim.

 Back home, when Hunter learns of his brother's capture there is only one option for him. Leaving behind his own little office, he joins the army as a medic and ships overseas with one mission in mind. To find his little brother and bring him home alive.
