I say it is time for a Native American hero in literature, thus I bring you Lone Wolf. He is a scion of the greatest guerilla warriors ever, the nineteenth century Apaches who held off the armies of two great nations for forty years and whose tactics are still studied by every war college. Lone Wolf is the grandson of an Apache Shaman who imbued him with a sense of spiruality and awareness of the now he needed to become a skywalker, one of those high altitude, vertigo free souls who bolt together the steel of skyscrapers. Fate led him into the hostage rescue business.
Lone Wolf is not the superman prototype who defeats roomfuls of foes in one breath or who kills indiscriminately. He is resourceful. He anticipates his enemy's next move and is better prepared than adversaries. He can adapt to change before an enemy can blink. He puts Sun Tzu's teachings in THE ART OF WAR into action.
In SHINING PATH Lone Wolf rescues U.S. Congresswoman Marta Stone from a prison high in the Andes. Pursued by Shining Path guerillas they flee and fight their way to Lima with information which decapitates the revolution as it did happen in history. In THE SKYWALKER he takes on a Japanese Yakusa in the midst of a blood feud, trying to kill a child heiress, only Lone Wolf flees with her through Mexico, Peru and Japan.
Risks and challenges
I see no risks to this project. The writing is done. The manuscripts have been professionally edited. The book packaging is complete. The novels are for sale now on Amazon.com in digital format and paperback. My newest novel, THE SKYWALKER, will be available Nov. 20. The challenge is to find funding to print books and advertise sales events, to become known as a writer of international thrillers, and get word-of-mouth rolling. Sending donors signed reward books will be a privilege.
