ACCOMPLISHING YOUR DREAMS, AND THE DUALITY OF 22
Is for KNIGHT RISE
Hat’s off to J, Arlee, and the others for allowing me to commandeer the blog (and the letter K) for a little self-promotion. I participated in the A-Z Challenge many moons ago and I remember what a fun time I had.
This year’s theme of Accomplishing Your Dreams is very appropriate for me, which is why I’m choosing to talk about just that with the letter K. I started my publishing journey a dozen years ago, right about the same time I began my own blog. Six novels and numerous short-stories later, it’s finally happening. It was a long road getting here, but it was a journey I thoroughly enjoyed (even if it was a bit frustrating at times). Making your dreams come true isn’t something that necessarily happens over night — I’m living proof of that — so stay committed!
KNIGHT RISE is my first foray into publishing. My mystery/suspense novel debuted last November, published by Wild Lark Books, and I’m pleased to report it has been well-received (4.80 rating on Goodreads). The reception was so positive that a follow up book (FALLEN KNIGHT) is scheduled for a June 1st release.
What’s the first book about? Here’s a summary –
A group of middle-aged friends embark on a sentimental quest.
A female Private Eye obsessed with a decades-old unsolved murder.
A killer trying to erase an old mistake, along with anyone in his way.
Twenty-nine years ago, Lee Hamilton was a college student having fun with friends on Spring break in sunny Florida. It was there that he met the beautiful and unforgettable Andi Taylor. They spent a magical week together. Lee was confident it would go somewhere. Then, months later, he received word that she had died.
Many years later, Lee is a widower, his own children now away at college, and after having fallen out of touch with his old college friends, Lee turns to his blog as an outlet. Taken by nostalgia, he writes about his week with Andi and unexpectedly sets off a dangerous string of events that will reunite him with old friends but could cost them all their lives.
KNIGHT RISE is a fast-paced, intriguing page-turner with a lot of heart. Follow this crew of enjoyable characters through stunning plot twists for a thrilling ride you won't forget!

Knight Rise is a terrific book! Loved the twists along the road! Highly recommend :)
Wow this is so amazing and my kind of reading. I will definitely check out the book. Thanks to the a-z challenge, I started writing my first fiction with every letter (each sentence of the chapter starts with the letter of the day) and the story is being appreciated. So thanking the a-z theme to make my book writing dream see a near future ��
Mine is about Knights as well.
For big dreams, I have a couple of books I want to get done with so I can start on something new for me. Science Fiction!
