My second publishing attempt, “Outside the Compound”, took over a year to finish. The storyline was about a team of private contractors working out of Kandahar, Afghanistan during the war. With a bounty on his head, the daring protagonist spearheads this select group countering the Taliban’s recruitment of citizen soldiers. Dare I say more– because just as the ink was drying, word got out and there were threats of legal action. Fortunately, my e-publisher, Ray Hoy, agreed that it was better to pull the book instead of making a goal line stance. I have rewritten the MS and changed person, place and compromising secrets. I’m hoping to pitch this to a lit agent that I have in mind. I think it’s right up her alley.
