Red, White, and Blue

Found via Google Images
As you may have noticed the underlying color scheme of our books and websites are Red, White, and Blue. That stems from our patriotic nature. David McKoy and I are participants in and have defended the American Dream. Upon entering the military, we swore to protect the Constitution from enemies foreign and domestic. 

As I grew older and wiser, I discovered how little I knew back then. In more recent years, it has become obvious how little the people who are supposed to uphold the Constitution really know about it.  Maybe they do know but choose to ignore it. Like our fictional character Howard E. Lyons, they desire to alert it to their will. 

Granted there are those who do stand up for the liberty and freedom of all Americans. They fight against the tyranny. Because of a friend introducing me to Kris Anne Hall, I learned that our Founding Fathers used words like 'shall not be...' to make it clear what their intentions were with this document. The Bill of Rights was not an afterthought but a way of making it clear for all to see what our Rights as American citizens were and ever shall be. 

The 4th of July is about another document, the Declaration of Independence. This was sent to King George, stating again what our grievances were. It also stated that despite peaceful attempts to redress these grievances, they were ignored by the king.  The king did not follow the mandates laid out before him. There were documents such as the Magna Carta that had been disregarded. 

In our books, we show how out of control the government can get. Enter in our patriotic group of former military special forces who went on to join the CIA as Special Operatives. On one of their missions, originally sanctioned by the CIA, things go wrong. Next thing they know they have been disavowed. They fight to get home. When they finally make it back- the presidency had been usurped. Life as they knew changed forever. All this and more happen in book 1 - Call Sign: Wrecking Crew (Storm Warning)

Book 2 - Call Sign: Wrecking Crew (Wings of Eagles) finds them in their new roles fighting to preserve their city against attack. 

Novella - Genesis: Call Sign: Wrecking Crew Slice of Life shows more of their personal lives and how they all came together. The ending of it works its way into our upcoming book - Call Sign: Wrecking Crew (Scimitar Brotherhood). - Since our novella is exclusive to Amazon KDP select program, you never know when it might be available at a reduced price. <wink>

For our fellow Americans, Happy Independence Day week. For our global friends and neighbors, have a great one!
