Dr. Bob Cook and David have finished a breakout novel entitled, "How the World WIll End: Israel's Future Headlines." It is with a famed editor undergoing a final polish.

A YouTube.Com video is planned, watching a Russian MiG-35 disappearing before your eyes, as it flies low level over Egypt.  Shades of Klingon and Romulan stealth!

Intrigued?  You should be.  Bob and David are consummate researchers of details.

You can look for the book on Amazon.Com the end of February, 2012.

This book, like others by David, gives its main characters their own websites and blogs.  You can converse with the heroes and even the villains, just as if they were real people.

The amazing nutrition researcher, Tank Kobarg has written "Essential Nutrition" for you.  He asked David to co-write and edit the work, and it's finished and ready for publication this month.

An audio version is available.

Want to live longer?
Go to http://EssNu.Com for your copy. 

It is a seminal work and will probably save your life.

Look for it about March 1st, 2012.

Have you heard of the concept of Parallel Universes?  They are real, just not in the spooky way of science fiction. You read about them all the time.  One universe is named "fact" and that's where you live.  The other one is named "fiction" and that's where a novel's characters live.

Accordingly, a website for Robert and Christie Mach, the arch protagonists of The Room bOmb, is up and running.  It's your interface between the universe named "fiction" and yours, named "non-fiction."

At that website portal, you can actually email and blog with Robert and Christie, as well as three other main characters:  Gordon Roth, Jamila Zenobia and Storm Endsley.

On request, you can even interface with various villains, but they won't be considering themselves villains, so expect a good argument.

David has published yet another title for your enjoyment, all in Kindle.  That's four in twelve days.

The latest, "Flash Points" is a novel about two leading candidates for the governorship of California. They fall in love, pledge a non-maligning campaign, and date publicly, to the delight of the world watching two people in love. One will win and the other will be "First Spouse."

It's a novel about what goes on in the backrooms and closed doors of politics, the intrigue, the bargaining, the negotiation, the positioning for power, and the very public side of politics. You will be surprised about who does what and why.

As always, David answers all email personally.

Enjoy,

David released "Complexity" about midnight and went to bed. Around 8 the next morning, he received a call from the Dream Center in Los Angeles, requesting a donation to assist their work fighting Human Trafficking at around 100 centers worldwide.

David didn't know they existed.  They didn't know the book existed.

Guess what the core of "Complexity" is.  It's Human Trafficking. The amazing Jim Tapscott gave him the idea for the ending.

Obviously, David bought and sent them the first copy.

Next, he rewrote the dedication to them and republished the book.

The book begins with two crack CIA agents being unable to thwart the kidnapping of 18 women from the crowded grandstand watching 4th of July fireworks at Mission Beach in San Diego. The trail leads to Africa. It's much more sinister and evil than slavery.

Mach 6 is available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. It's the third of the Mach Books series.

My dear friend Francis Tapscott passed away on 1-12-2012, the day I submitted Mach 6  to the publisher.  She loved a good aviation yarn and I had dedicated the book to  her.  I hoped to get her a copy, but I couldn't do so.  I'll see her again, of course, vibrant, alive in Heaven, and I'll read her the book that was for her.

You can buy a copy by clicking the cover.

How To (Be A) Genius : Trkcking Yourself to be Smarter went online today in Kindle format.

This book shows that geniuses are more made than born. They have a different way of looking at problems, and a different way of seeking solutions. I have broken down the processes that geniuses use to find solutions. Basically, I codified the process of Being A Genius. It goes like this:

Seek the impossible limits and attack those. Anyone can handle the rest, so let them. Concentrate your vast mental energy on things more worthy of you.

When you find an impossibility, then shout "Hallelujah" and work there. This book details, step by step, how to work there. For one thing, pretend that limitation doesn't exist and see what the world would look like in that case.

Usually, it leads to another limit, and disregarding that one leads to another, until an easily solved limit appears, and the whole problem falls apart, as the solution shouts itself into existence.

You inspired me to create a trailer for The Room bOmb, and it's out there on YouTube. If you want to watch it, here is the link. It's also on the home page marked "Video" on The Room bOmb book's icon.

Audaz: Fearless has always been one of my favorite stories. Published five years ago, the tale has mulled in my mind ever since. I decided it could be better with fresher details and a load of photographs, so the new version has those things.

One of my editors thanked me for including photos in Mach-6 because she is a visual person, so I redoubled the task and made Audaz available in both Color and in Large Print.  Please enjoy!

Valentine's Day

A bit of a Valentine's Day present for you.

Thank you so very much for inspiring me to make
Mach-6 available in paperback. It's a large undertaking, but well worth it to please you. I received the 'galley proof' Friday and the quality is excellent. It will be fully ready by March 1st.

It will sell for a whopping $9.95 plus a few dollars for shipping, and it will arrive about five business days after you order it. If you want it faster, I've arranged for 1-day-air and 2-day-ground shipping.

As you may know, I believe in pictures to enhance text. Printing a book in full color is about $17 more expensive, total around $27 plus shipping, so to keep your costs down, the black-and-white version is available. That means black-and-white inside like nearly any novel, but with a quality color cover of course.

Please accept my warmest thanks for inspiring me to do this.

If you've been following the Novel-In-Progress called "The Seduction of DoctoRx," you'll notice that it is nearly done.

I took some time off to help Ann Covey with her lovely book "Steven's Song" which you'll find here by the end of August 2012. DoctoRx will go live about the same time as Steven's Song does.

DoctoRx is an experimental thing. Every week I published 5-10 more chapters as I wrote it, all in the raw.  It will be finished 8-15-12 and I'll leave it on Novel-In-Progress.Com for another week.

It is the second in the Dare Books series, following Flash Points.

"The Seduction of DoctoRx" is live on Kindle now and Amazon chosse it for their KDP Select catalog.  Understandabily, I am thrilled.

It gets better. This month, I was able to finish two novels, not just one, "Sleep Smiling" being the second one. Amazon included it in their KDP Select catalog also.  They also chose Mach-6 and Complexity.

I have to celebrate!  Next weekend, 11/16/12 thru 11/18/12, you will be able to download both books to your Kindle or your PC absolutely free -- but on those days only, per Amazon rules!

They'll be published in paperback by mid-month.

What a fun journey it has been this year! On Veteran's Day 11/11/11, I decided that with the Lord's help and inspiration, I would write a full-length book a month for at least a year.

Along the way, I was able to help three other authors publish their books, as e-books, in print and in audio format.

Well, it was a part time journey, because I'm the full-time Chief Division Officer of two companies I love, called Good Samaritans.

I thank all of my friends, along with my best friend of all, Jesus, for giving me the inspiration and stamina to do this.  You are the best ever!

"Audaz : Fearless" has been selling on the bookshelves for five years at a whopping $34.95. My ex-publisher chose the price.

My contract expired, so I updated it severely with a large number of photos and a new title.  I published it in print at Amazon for about half price, $17.99.  It's a large book.

My dear friend Doug Stokes got an advance copy and has been encouraging me to put it on Kindle.

Amazon is reviewing the Kindle version at $3.49 and it should be available tomorrow.  Thank you Doug!!

MY UNABASHED "FREEBIE - PLEASE HELP" PROGRAM.

Okay, I want to get the word out -- that it's possible to write excellent, thrilling, clean, family friendly novels for the whole world to enjoy. I'm doing it and so are some other authors.

There is no need for "bleeps" and @#$% words. They have no place in society. Some diagree, but I lay out this challenge to all novelists. "Try writing without such words and see if you don't write better!"

For this to work, my books need to be on best-seller lists. Thus, they need you to review them.

Here's the plan:

I'll give you free copies if you'll review them.  Be factual and honest of course. Just click below and send me a note.

We're excited around here. Praise the Lord!

It seems I'm on track to follow my sister, Delle Jacobs, to best-sellerdom by Christmas, and I need a boost from you.

My books need short blurbs, reviews and lots of them.

Accordingly, I'm making my whole library free on selected weekends, several books at a time. After all, you need books if you're going to read and review them.

I'm sending email with the schedule. You can also find the schedule on the home page, down at the bottom.

Kindle books download free. You can even get Paperbacks at a 100% discount on those same days. Amazon requests about $4.50 shipping for the first book and 50-cents for each additional book in the same box.

That sounds like a great Christmas gift. I'm doing that too.

Four New Book Releases in November, 2012.

1. STEVEN'S SONG, Ann Covey's amazing, gentle book about the many miracles Jesus has done for and through her, and her son Steven Covey, is available in Paperback. Detals shortly.

My sister, Delle Jacobs finished an outstanding cover for Steven's Song based on design work by Sandra Smithey, who also did the transcription (from pencil) and editing. I only helped with the publishing.

Personally, I wrote three more books in November:

2. AS THE WORLD BURNS, SLEEP SMILING became available. It has its own web page here, accessible from the home page.
It's the 5th of the Mach Books series.

3. THE SEDUCTION OF DOCTORx was also released in November. You can read about it on the home page and on its own page.  It's the 2nd of the Dare Books series

4. EMBRACE THE IMPOSSIBLE, THE COLOR OF A MAN is released to a limited audience. It's the 2nd of the Rebirth of Business series.

I finished another novel THE WIND OF GOD and published it today on Kindle and as paperback.

I love to experiment with all sorts of things and as a result, this book has been called a new genre. I'm not sure about that, but it's thrilling for certain and it goes into areas I've not seen in literature.

Please let me know if you'd like me to write faster in this series: Wind Books. At the moment, I intend five books.

Thanks my friend,
-David-

The Hebrew word pronounced Mensch is reserved for an honorable person of rare and noble character.

Such was the late Martin Krauss, my good friend and husband of talented author Margaret Krauss.

Martin was a man of humor. I recall him counselling hounger men that marital longevity is easy, if you think it is. "Unfortunately for  you," he said, "my Margaret is off the market."

Martin was a Messianic Jew who knew Jesus as his Messiah.

Y'all went 'n' done it, as my Baton Rouge relatives say.

You put my name up all over the place on search engines. "Author, WIll David Mitchell" or the same thing without quotes, utterly dominates places like Google.

Now, I know that's mostly because you can count the number of authors with my full name with one thumb and I'm not writing for fame at all, just to promote good literature by example. But you're promoting it! That's what's very cool.

Thanks from my heart,
-David-

My good friend and husband of my cherished sister, Delle Jacobs passed away, almost suddenly after a very short battle with cancer.

Dell has stopped writing for a while, to regain her strength, unable to move her talented fingers across the keys.. I, too for a while. Jeff was a magnificent man. The world is poorer and Heaven richer.

If you get a chance, please see http://DelleJacobs.Blogspot.Com for her short tribute to one of God's finest men, the great love of her life.

Meet you at the south wall of New Jerusalem, my friend.
