Alright, Agents.
Mission Updates:

UA 2 has finally reached the end of it's rewrite stage! *HAPPY DANCE!!!*
All it needs now is a final read through and for the Betas to respond with their feedback....
Synopsis has been sent off to the editor.
Front cover is finalized and in my portfolio.

*Official release of cover will be soon!*

Among other things, there is a special mission for you, with a reward for your work.

First of all, I'd like to send out a HUGE thank you to those who've read and left reviews on both Amazon and Goodreads!

Amazon has been a bit of a jerk lately, but I have a goal set to hopefully reach 100 reviews before the sequel hits
I believe in you, agents. We need as much spreading of the UA word as possible in the next couple months.

As per the reward (and no Jo Lawless, it's not a teleporter, sorry), when you've read UA and have posted your thoughts on both Amazon (GoodReads optional), post a screenshot of your review to be entered for the chance to receive an ARC of UA2! More than that, you will have your name as a character in UA3!

That's right! You will become a character in the UA series!!!

*Runs around the room cheering for 20 minutes*

So get to sharing, let your friends know, and remember:
This message will self destruct at a TBA time. (Tense situation, I know right?)

Thanks to this author my love of spy stories has been revived! I got so tired of the same ol' bad guy has a bomb so let's talk it to death storyline. Along came Ultimate Agent to save the day! Smarts,... wit (yes the two are different), humor, AND SUPERPOWERS!! Ultimate Agent is ultimate awesome!! See More

This book needs to be made into a movie. With Graham Rogers from Quantico playing the part of me.

A wonderful new addition to the Sci-Fi and YA Genres! If you love action packed stories about superheroes/spies that love hard but don't make you blush in the process, Borne is your man.
Mission Complete. Video #1 of 3
Sam McIntyre, I've got the hair on point at least, right?

As Seth Godin notes in this powerful clip, if you want to get good at something, it starts with being bad. Be sure to listen to what Seth says to people who make excuses about not being talented. Genius!

A Medieval Series You Can't Ignore!

5/5: The last time I read a medieval genre novel, it was Timeline by Michael Crichton. And now I'm hooked on this series by Frost Kay! This is a book where the characters are very well done, really showing you what makes them tick and who they truly are. Kay's ability to build the pace as the story....

What's this?
A teaser of... a teaser for The Ultimate Agent 2??
Who would do such a thing???
