Future Dreamer's Finished!

That's right, The Impenetrable Spy: Future Dreamer is finished--with edits, rewrites, proofreading,--and has been sent for formatting. A character dies early on in the book, and I wouldn't want to spoil it, so I will include some excerpts (from later in the book) that define the 2nd book's writing style.

The following excerpt shows the fast-paced action of Future Dreamer:

           "Greg got up and fired a pistol round at Zack. Zack climbed into the Mercedes as Greg broke a car window and hotwired a white sedan. Zack pulled out of the lot and pushed the speed limits of his car. Zack’s car screeched on the pavement. The back tires had been shot by Greg. Zack cursed and slammed on the brakes. He opened the car door and made a run for it. Greg crashed into Zack’s car and hit his head on the steering wheel. Greg grabbed his head as blood ran down his face. He sprinted as Zack ran into an alley.
Zack hid behind a dumpster with his pistol and briefcase at his side. He held his breath as Greg came into view. Zack lunged at Greg and tackled him to the ground as the briefcase fell to the snow. Greg punched Zack in the stomach, but Zack grabbed Greg’s pistol and tossed it into the street. Zack belted Greg in the face and ducked to avoid a punch. He grabbed a metal pipe out of the dumpster and fell to the ground to avoid a knife lunge from Greg. Zack swung the pipe at Greg’s head. Greg ducked and tripped Zack. Zack stumbled, but grabbed Greg and forced the pipe against his neck. Greg gasped for air but managed to elbow Zack in the stomach. He took the hit but was elbowed again. Zack was forced to release Greg from the searing pain in his stomach. Zack struck Greg’s peroneal nerve above the knee with the pipe, temporarily disabling Greg. Greg hollered at Zack and fell to the ground. Zack punched Greg in the face one last time, leaving him unconscious. Zack grabbed the briefcase and spotted a hotel out of the corner of his eye. He needed a shower and some rest."

The next excerpt describes Zack's car, a 2011 Shelby Gt500, which is used later in the book:

           "He entered the Shelby Gt500 and typed in the address on the GPS, before climbing into the backseat while the car drove itself in autopilot mode. His car had about every weapon imaginable. It had two Gatlin guns, two targeting missiles hidden in a pair of suicide doors, deployable rear spike strips and a gun compartment concealed in the back of the car to store his weapons. The back was missing one seat and the chair sat parallel with the passenger side facing the window on the driver’s side. It had bullet proof glass and metal shielded wheels. The car had a built in GPS, wireless router, a Bose sound system, and a laptop. The backseat had a wine bottle and cup holders with champagne glasses. Zack had a car calling implant in his leg that the car could read from ten miles away.  If he tapped it, the car would track him down and go into autopilot mode. Zack was highlighted as a blue dot on the GPS so the car could find him in a matter of minutes or seconds.
            There was a touch screen remote that could control every accessory in it. The car had an autopilot mode that had a two way camera, one in the front, and one in the back. The cameras were infrared and would sense the traffic. The car was basically a perfect driver while Zack could control all of its weapons and stay perfectly safe from enemy fire. During autopilot mode, the car would recline Zack’s seat flat so he could be safe to concentrate on the weapons."

  1. Any idea when the book is going to be available Spencer?

  2. I'm not entirely sure, because it has to be formatted for paperback, Kindle, Nook, and have the paperback cover designed. I'd say maybe late next month-ish. I'll let you know as soon as I find out Chris.
