The End Starts Here

You’d think after taking the time to plot, draft, write, and revise an entire novel that you’d be a little excited. Try doing that through the span of 8 years. I never felt a greater sense of accomplishment in my entire life. Bigger than graduating college. Bigger than landing a phenomenal career. Bigger than earning my MBA. Bigger than proposing to my fiancé…

Well, maybe not that last one.

But here it is! In all its tremendous glory!

There are just so many people I’d like to thank for this tremendous effort and even though they have been acknowledged and immortalized within the pages of this script, not recognizing their efforts and contributions on my blog would be a grave injustice.

First off, my beloved parents. Although they will never read nor comprehend what it is that I’ve created, they will always support me as long as I’m happy with what I’m doing.

To my darling brother who (usually) never has anything nice to say about my work. I can remember a time where I had him acting in our parent’s garage for 5 hours trying to work through this scene for a YouTube video. Even to this day he still refers to that video and a great majority of the ones I put months into filming and editing as complete and utter crap. To have his seal of approval on this one means the world to me.

Of course, how could I leave out my wonderful fiancé Lisha. A woman who spent countless nights hoping I’d stop writing for just a few moments to simply acknowledge her presence. Her review and criticisms of this book gave me confidence that it can and will appeal to all types of demographics willing to give it a chance by cracking open the first page. For that, I am forever thankful.

Special and particular thanks goes out to a Mr. David Sondered at Studio Colrouphobia. If you are looking for a man that embodies the very definition of patience then look no further. I constantly and consistently badgered him with requests and changes to embody the cover to what I wanted. And yet… He made a couple of simple suggestions and I have been humbled. You sir, are a professional and a man of class.

And finally, to all of my friends and family members. I know I had kept this a secret from most of you only because when I first started “bragging” about my novel, I became swallowed in hype. That was 8 years ago. Humbling experience aside, I couldn’t be happier with the support you’ve offered and I hope that you enjoy the ride I’ll be taking you on.

Just like the tag-line to Agent M: Project Mabus…  We’ve only just begun.

This is the only piece of work I approve of, and it's a MAJOR step up. You've gone from finger painting to Picasso in one fail swoop. Proud of you, bro!
