My debut novel, and 1st book in the series, Arklight: Operation Nightfall has won the 2018 Readers’ Favorite Bronze Medal for Christian Thrillers. It was an inspired tale that came to me in such a way; it begged to be written. I am very honored to receive a major international award. I have entered Arklight: Force Interdiction in the 2019 competition, so I’m hoping for much of the same!
I’m really happy to announce that Operation Nightfall will be on display at the Miami Book Fair, November 11-18, 2018, by Readers’ Favorite. My book placed third out of thousands of submissions and that’s a pretty awesome milestone. I hope to have the final book in the series through the initial write by sometime in early 2019. For now, I will seriously enjoy this moment!
It’s time to give everyone a sneak peak of what I’ve been working on – I give you The Prologue to Arklight: Force Interdiction. Just click on the link below to view it in PDF. Look for the entire book to release on Amazon, August 13th, 2018.
There’s still time to read Arklight: Operation Nightfall – the one that started this incredible journey (4.8 out of 5 Stars on Amazon). The prologue picks up about 6 months after Nightfall ended, but is a stand-alone story all it’s own.
Buckle up Nashville! Magnus O’Keefe is one nasty hombre, hell-bent on vengeance. Arklight is humanities only weapon against this deadly foe. A battle like no other looms on the horizon – Fight for yesterday… Hope for tomorrow…
Powerful enemies threaten.
Everlasting judgment begins.
Reoutfitted and recovered from the costly Battle of Nashville, Spear Team launches a crusade to uncover the truth. This time, they know their enemy: a brutal and cruel special operative known as Magnus O’Keefe. Desperate to locate the next piece of the ultimate weapon, Arklight launches a mission to retrieve the infamous Spear of Destiny. Soon after, they learn of another bygone piece of the puzzle that has been unearthed, bringing to light an astonishing history, lost in the annals of conspiracy and lore. A long-forgotten Nazi regime will stop at nothing to finish what they started under Hitler’s genocidal rule. Rising from the ashes, the Fourth Reich’s Order of the Black Sun covertly initiates the final solution, using a weapon of unimaginable destruction.
Bridging over two thousand years of human history, two timelines converge into a singular event; while Spear Team struggles against Magnus, the Alsos Mission Team transcends time, continuing their quest to understand the cryptic Knights Templar journal. In the midst of World War II, clues lead the Alsos Team on a journey until they learn of a judgment day – planned since the beginning of all things. Purpose drives this “battle to end all battles” against an ancient foe, who is fighting to free itself from a dimensional prison – that is, until the portal is opened, the seal is broken, and the Apocalypse begins. The ultimate battle of good versus evil takes place in this final installment of the Arklight trilogy.

I had to look up a couple of novels that I knew were distinguished in both content and length. For instance, J.R.R Tolkien’s books are epic, some of them extending beyond 140,000 words in length. Arklight: Task Force Crusader is now in rewrite mode where it will inevitably swell, then shrink, through the editing process. After today’s progress, it sits at a comfortable 128,000 words, give or take a few. Not Tolkien territory, but it’s pretty close. So who cares, right?
Amazingly enough, Arklight has a modest fan base and I thought it worth mentioning, since the previous two books came in around the 85,000 word mark. This story is going to have an epic beginning, middle, and end that should hook everyone in. I’ve condensed what could have easily been two books, into an information-packed action-junkie frenzy that should delight any reader. The historical accuracy will keep your Wikipedia searches ablaze, while the story takes you on a journey to the very end – the end of all things. Yeah, the stakes are larger than life!
I’m looking forward to hearing from the beta readers already, and I’m still a couple of months away from that stage of the process. This story loops factual history through a maze of well-known conspiracy, following Biblical prophecy from the Crusades into the modern day. Spear Team is getting ready for one last ride into the depths of discovery this summer! Magnus is hot on their heels. Task Force Crusader is coming at you in full force!
Look for the award-winning Arklight: Operation Nightfall and the recently released sequel, Arklight: Force Interdiction on Amazon and Amazon Unlimited. The final installment of the trilogy, Arklight: Task Force Crusader will released sometime this summer!
I realize it’s been a while since I posted anything. The Arklight story is coming to a very exciting end. I just crested about 90,000 words and am writing the final few chapters. Titled “Arklight: Task Force Crusader”, this third and final installment of the trilogy will be significantly longer than the previous two books. There’s still much to do in order to get this one done, but I’m hoping to spend the spring in rewriting/revision mode. If all goes well, I hope to get it into editing by summer of 2019.
This final book will answer everyone’s questions about the ultimate weapon, the final solution, and how the journey will end for our heroes. You’ll also find out why Magnus is so driven and brutal. Arklight’s historical accuracy is right on in this final installment, and I promise you that it will absolutely floor you. You’ll either be terrified or grateful, depending on where you sit. I’m very excited to end this series with the biggest bang you could ever imagine.
Oh, what’s with the Ghent Altarpiece being displayed again? To take it forward, I gotta take you back in time. In Task Force Crusader, not only once, but twice, you will go back in time. In 1934, prior to the events of Operation Nightfall, two panels of the painting were stolen. While one panel was returned, the Just Judges panel was never recovered. If you’ve read Nightfall, you should be familiar with the Adam panel story. Let’s just say, there’s a ton of meat on the bone with the finale of this story and the infamous history of the Ghent Altarpiece.
Finally, after getting this one over the finish line in 2019, I’ll be working on a completely new project. The premise is interesting and I’m already working on certain aspects of the story. Updates will post again soon. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
I’ve gotten many requests to add some references, definitions, and explanations to the Arklight story. I’m happy to announce, that box is checked, thanks to Amazon Kindle’s X-ray feature. It works very similar to the Amazon Fire TV system, in which it allows the viewer to look up the cast, history, terms, and other information about the novel. X-ray works on Kindle readers and the Kindle app, so it’s very user friendly.
I have gone through both, Operation Nightfall and Force Interdiction , adding over 200 links to historical events, locations, characters, military terms, and units. It is my hope that this detailed information will enhance the reading experience. I also hope that the reader will realize the true scope of the sacrifices made by some very heroic people. Men like Eugene Fluckey, John Bell, George Patton, and many others faced impossible odds and defeated a terrible foe in Nazi Germany.
So, enjoy the books and leave me some reviews. The third and final Arklight book, Task Force Crusader, will be out sometime in 2019. Thanks to the readers!
