Why read my books?
If you’re tired of the vampire, werewolf, latest blood and guts cult massacre, and witches coven genres…same story different book cover, then I offer you a trilogy that has a sci-fi slant with a government cover-up, and many twists and turns along the way.
I enjoy disaster movies, Earthquake, Armageddon, Deep Impact, 2012, but what you never see or ever read about is what is going on behind the scenes in these calamities. How are the people that may be affected by these events reacting? What are they doing to cope with the potential for annihilation? What is the government’s role in preparing the people for such an event? How desperate will the citizens become when a potential cataclysmic event becomes public? What kind of planning goes into a disaster survival plan? The first book in the series is New Earth: Project O.N.E., it was released in July 2011 in all the popular e-book formats; the print version will be released in September 2011.
If you like suspense and thriller type plots; you’ll like these books.
If a story about sacrifice, family values, and American heroes is what you like to read; you’ll appreciate these books.
If you’re active or retired military; you’ll enjoy these books.
And if you like adventure, intrigue, and a good old fashioned story about conspiracy...then you should have a pleasurable reading experience.
If you’ll notice …I’m more about storytelling…not imparting some magical writing style similar to Hemingway or Vonnegut or Clancy. I believe that a reader should feel comfortable when reading a story and not be compelled to dash to the nearest dictionary or consult a wikipedia site to research the derivation of some nondescript word that is rarely used in everyday life.
“She sauntered aimlessly in a capricious manner without regard for convention.”
How about saying, “She wandered about ignoring the obvious marked pathway.” That’s how I write, for the reader, not the book critic or the various literary societies; I try and talk to a reader as if they were sitting next to me on a bench in the park on a sunny day. I’m not looking to impress the reader, but entertain them.
I‘ve never been happier than my days as a young boy growing up in Texas, but I’m the closest I will ever get now— and with a much wider appreciation for the world we live in. Enjoy my books…I did.
My name is R.D. Pittman and I’m a storyteller.
