TO THE BRAVE BELONG ALL THINGS

On the last day of Hunter, a secret agent said to me: "TO THE BRAVE BELONG ALL THINGS"

Back in my days as a Paratrooper, I remember this exact phrase would flash across my consciousness whenever we’d force ourselves to depart from a perfectly good aircraft into black, starless skies…  Not surprisingly, sometimes we needed encouragement to launch out into the unknown, and when it came to me, it worked every time.

The stoic Celtic adage applies equally to those of us part of the current publishing revolution – blazing a trail into the world of eBooks, online communities, and technologies that allow readers to find and enjoy stories from a diverse new range of voices.

SUPER INTREPID STYLE

On the fifth day of Hunter, a secret agent said to me: SUPER INTREPID STYLE. 

I must admit, it wasn't me, more my other half Sarah who suggested this painfully hip version. I wasn't going to knock it back though, because these Intrepid designs are all about having some fun. And Super Intrepid Style, if it existed, would be a fun move.

As I write this, Hunter: Intrepid 2 is sitting at #2 on the Crimes and Thriller Best-Seller List on iTunes. I'm elated. Let's just say, if it hits #1, I might just film a quick video of some kind of interpretive Super Intrepid Style version of the Gangnam dance!

ALEX MORGAN IS BACK

On the third day of Hunter, my inner agent said to me: "Alex Morgan is Back".

I remember the 1970's, sitting in a old cinema in sleepy old Perth, my home town, around about this time of year, watching the latest Bond epic - starring the longest serving 007, Roger Moore, sitting through those final end credits, awaiting  those familiar few words: "James Bond will return". It seared into my memory - just as much as the enduring, action-packed stories Fleming himself created: the other-worldly villains, the extraordinary women, and the dark, brooding, tragically flawed Bond who took me to so many exotic places.

It was destined then to be, that at the end of my first and second novels I would inevitably place "Alex Morgan will return" on my final pages. Now that the baddies in Operation Defender have been given their comeuppance, and those villainous creatures in Operation Hunter brought to justice, I am more certain than ever that my creation, Major Alex Morgan, is also here to stay.

Some have even said he's about to embark on his next adventure: Operation Avenger. But don't tell anyone!
