Dear blog, I have been busy writing for quite a few years now. My first story was a learning experience. It was a freakin mess. I loved the story but the way I wrote it was a train wreck in the making. But hey, it was my first story. I will return to it someday and make it right. My second story, the one I published, was also a learning experience but it was much better than the first so I gave it a shot and self published it. My third, I’m feeling pretty good about. It’s actually a prequel to the second story I wrote. Keeping track of all of this? Cause I think I just lost myself back at the first story.
So I’m pretty close to having my third book finished. It deals with characters I have come to know and care about a lot. And I even have ideas for the third book in this series in play. But I feel I need to give it a break for just a while. The thing is, I have some exciting ideas for another story. And a good friend of mine has been developing the lead character for it. She has done a fantastic job of it as well. her descriptions of Anastasia far exceed what I had imagined her to be. She understands Anastasia far better than I could have ever hoped to.
So, as excited as I am about finishing The Shield of Health and putting it up for sale for all to read, I am just as excited about starting this new project with Ashley Fontainne. When I first published The Mission I never imagined that it would lead to this. In many ways, I am living the dream.

Win a signed Copy of Accountable to None from your Dear Old Uncle Bill!
My first introduction to Ms Ashley Fontainne was at her Goodreads author page. I had just finished watching the trailer for her novel Accountable to None. Immediately, I left her a message. Being someone who has wanted to make a trailer for my own book, I felt compelled to let Ms Fontainne know that I thoroughly enjoyed watching it. Each frame was a chapter describing a book that I would be interested in reading. Accountable to None is a story of a woman who takes five years of her life planning her revenge on those who have brutalized her or let it happen. In the process, Audra discovers others who have suffered at the hands of the powerful and greedy, partners of Winscott & Associates and finds herself avenging them as well.
I downloaded a sample of Accountable to None and soon afterwards, learned that Ms Ashley Fontainne was giving away copies of the novel at The Kindle and Me; a blog hosted by Anjana Vasan. A couple of days after I registered to win, I received an e-mail announcing that I had won a signed copy. This was great, for I had finished the sample and was prepared to purchase the full copy. Not only that but upon winning a copy, I came to realize that I was meant to read this book.
Accountable to None was everything I had hoped it would be and more. It was compelling and entertaining. There were moments in the book that touched me. Moments that would put a lump in a lesser man’s throat. Who am I kidding? I damn near reached for the Kleenex a couple of times. And then the ending, this is where that fifth star comes into my rating of this story. I will not give it away, I can only say that it was quite fun and delicious.
Between the trailer she produced for the story and the story itself, it is clear that Ms Ashley Fontainne is nothing less than talented. I expect that we will be hearing from Ms Fontainne quite a bit in the future. I for one am looking forward to it.
Accountable to None has earned my five-star rating!
