RELEASE DATE: 19 November, 2017
Coming this Sunday is the release of our first book outside of the CRIS DE NIRO universe. JOSHUA'S COUNTRY is a modern War Western that answers the question, "What happens when an Islamic terrorist's hate for America faces an old cowboy's love for his grandson?"
Yet, JOSHUA'S COUNTRY became less a war story or terrorist tale than a story of a man's disillusionment with his country and dysfunctional relationship with his family. Joshua is a prideful man that paid a painful price for that pride.
In the end, JOSHUA'S COUNTRY is a story of second chances ... and of the power of love in a family. when the family is united.
"The strength of a family, like the strength of an army is in its loyalty to each other."-- Mario Puzo
Well, it took three years, but finally NEW CRIS DE NIRO!! NEW DETROIT (Cris De Niro, Book 6) was actually a story I conceived way back in late 2014 then Hollywood came knocking and - well - I spent the last three years writing screenplays and treatments for some AWESOME movie and TV projects with my writing/producing partner, mentor, and amigo-for-life Mike Greenburg!
Beginning in August 2014, Mike and I have co-written the following projects for the big screen and TV:
If there is one morale that I learned since 2014, its NEVER to stop writing novels! There is more than one reason ... For one, writing is like anything else, you get rusty if you don't maintain it, and writing screenplays and treatments, while fun, is very different from writing novels. Another reason is writing is the BEST MEDICINE for my tortured soul! Like all artists, I feel a need to express myself. For me, that means telling stories.
The movie and TV projects are very exciting and hold enormous potential for my career. Success on screen will undoubtedly positively effect my book sales. Yet, the process to make it to screen can be extremely frustrating ... that is, the aspects of the process that are completely out of my control (read: waiting for Hollywood peeps to make up their minds). Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't change my decision to go after the big and small screens, but from now on, I prefer to focus on what I can control - telling my stories, in the form of publishing books.
I'll keep you posted ...
