After almost 2 ½ years of working together, my friend and author client Pete, completed his 227,000-word novel, A Hundred Stingers. And here we are in a dive bar, where we story-conferenced, toasting this remarkable book, with stingers, which the bartender called an old timers’ drink! So be it.
A Hundred Stingers is Pete’s story of serving as an aviator over the Ho Chi Minh Trail during the Vietnam War. I’ve read all the major novels of the Vietnam War and this one rates right up there with Matterhorn, Fields of Fire, Dispatches and Rumor of War. It’s that good. It’s more timely than ever. We’ve got two undeclared wars still going on. We seem to learn nothing.
I have been honored to work with Pete on this monumental novel. It’s been one of the most rewarding experiences of my literary life and I hope to continue my work with other fledgling authors. If you are a writer with a book in mind, or know someone like that, please consider my services as author coach and let your friends know about me. I’m vastly cheaper than other coaches in the PNW, and I offer face-to-face meetings with authors, which in my mind, is the best way to go about this process. Every other service I know of is online only. Something is missing there
