The good thing is that I’ve had some time to tweak a few parts of the story that I realized needed a little more depth as to the action going on with the various story lines. Agent Ryan Moss and Beth Kurkowski are back in book two working together for the Extracurricular Action Group. The EAG is a subdivision of the CIA’s SAD/SOG divisions. The Special Action Division is responsible for covert related political, psychological and economic warfare operations, while the Special Operations Group is responsible for most of the high threat military / intelligence operations around the world and chooses their operatives from top tier special missions units such as Delta Force, DEVGRU, MARSOC and ISA. In my universe, the EAG has been created to deal with the recent alien threat.
I just finished a kick-ass chapter that laid out the story line for this group and how it relates to Startüm Ironwolf and sets part of the stage for the storyline in book three and four. When I’d first created the character Agent Ryan Moss of the Counter Terrorist Agency, I just needed a team leader for one of the counter-terrorist assault teams, but as I began writing the story Agent Moss’ character just came to life. It was as much of a surprise to me as it was to many of my readers that he survived the whole ordeal in book one. By the end of the story he had become a main character to the story who I happy brought back in book two.
Anyway, I’m still working hard at getting the story finished, while at the same time making sure I don’t rush. I’d rather have the story take a little longer and make sure it’s right. As you know, weekends are family time, so for now I’m going back to watch some Arrow, Flash & Grimm with my wife.
