If you follow my neural-based training stuff, you may want to link to http://www.accentusludus.com, the website for the company I run with my amazing business partner Carol Martinson. We are redesigning the website and will be moving ALL archived neural-based material to a blog or article archive on that site; this site, Random Thoughts, will be for writing and, well, Random Thoughts.
There is also a book in progress that compiles most of the neural-based training material into a workbook along with a number of specific training exercises focused on the needs of the combat shooter. While Accentus-Ludus is NOT a tactical training company (we DESIGN training programs, some of which may be tactical in nature) we have a huge amount of material that’s germane to shooting while under stress. This workbook is a short compilation of immediately usable info designed to be taken to the range and used there.
There will be other books and workbooks; this is certainly not meant to be the be-all and end-all on the subject.
We have a number of major irons in the fire; more on that on the http://www.accentusludus.com site when we have it fully set up.
Looks like it’s going to be time for me to put on my traveling shoes again….
I’ve been busy lately with Accentus-Ludus business AND the recent round of promotions for SWORD OF MICHAEL. Link here: http://www.amazon.com/Sword-Michael-Depossessionist-Marcus-Wynne/dp/1476736898/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1414689397&sr=8-1&keywords=sword+of+michael

The Kindle and e-book versions are apparently on sale everywhere; the trade paperback won’t be released till 4 November, next Tuesday, but you can pre-order if you like at the above link. I was going to shoot for a “Book Bomb Day” but due to the bizarre timing of the electronic and the paperback release, I’ll just leave that to my readers.
This PR bit has been an interesting journey. I’ve done lots of PR in my time: OPRAH, PRIMETIME, FOX, etc. etc. — for SWORD OF MICHAEL I teamed up again with the amazing Elena Stokes and her team at http://wunderkind-pr.com. If you’re an author, or a publicist involved in publishing, or a publisher, if you don’t have The Goddess Len on your speed dial — you don’t have PR. Thanks, Len!
As my readers know, SWORD OF MICHAEL is a venture into a new (to me) genre: urban fantasy. I had a LOT of fun writing it, and a LOT of fun promoting it. Like I said, I’ve been all over the traditional mass media in news and talk shows, done easily a thousand radio interviews…but this was my first venture into alternative media and especially these very interesting shows and sites that focus on paranormal activity.
I’ll embed some links below, and I have a very interesting interview coming up on the COAST TO COAST radio show http://www.coasttocoastam.com. That will be late night on 4 November, and into the wee morning hours of 5 November. If you’re an insomniac (like me) tune in. Should be interesting.
Here’s a Q+A from Riffle:
I’m the October Pick of the Month at the awesome SF/F bookstore MYSTERIOUS GALAXY:
My good friend and long-time supporter WWE legend Lance Storm has a Twitter contest going on. If you buy SWORD OF MICHAEL and Tweet him a picture of you and the book cover, he’ll follow you on Twitter. @lancestorm
My awesome friend Ms. Kelly of Zombieapocalypse.net (yes, that’s a thing!) has an interview with me here:
I’ve had several wonderful, rambling conversations with Jeff Rense; here’s a video he did with an extract from one of our conversations:
I’ve done several nation-wide radio interviews, and I have one coming up in my home town of Minneapolis, so if you’re on the morning drive listen to me around 7 a.m. tomorrow.
So a big shout out and thank you to all my readers, and all of those who support me with their friendship and shout outs — THANK YOU!
Enjoy the read.
