Great news: Scouts Out! A Kiowa Warrior Pilot’s Perspective of War in Afghanistan

APPROVED for release!

Words cannot convey how exciting it is to finally report this!

I have more appreciation for the patience and understanding so many of you have had than you’ll ever know.

Without further adieux!

The Official launch date for Scouts Out! is today, October 1st, 2021.

The book launch plan itself has changed, thanks to these two major circumstances:

  1. Not being afforded the ability to establish a definitive release date in advance, thanks to legally-binding government review constraints.

  2. Current events surrounding the absolute dumpster-fire that Afghanistan has become, as well as the resulting public outrage and interest in the situation.

Given these factors, there will not be a several weeks long pre-book-launch campaign to do virtual book tours, build buzz, etc.

Effective immediately, all versions of Scouts Out! are available for order:

ebook, Soft Cover, Hard Cover—all of these versions now have an easy link for purchase on this site's homepage, as well as below.

For those of you that have a local library or favorite indie book store which you’d prefer to use (which even actually helps spread more awareness of Scouts Out!), the bottom section of this blog entry will have all of the information needed to place such an order.

The main homepage of this website will also be updated with this information soon.

Of course, I also deeply appreciate information about this book release and purchasing links being shared with anyone you know who may enjoy the story.

Speaking of enjoying the book:

Since Scouts Out! is brand new to the market, and I was not afforded the same opportunities to promote (thanks, government), I could really use some testimonial and review support.

The two biggest favors I could ever ask of you are:

  1. Take a brief moment to submit a review once you’re done reading. It not only helps convince potential readers to give the book a chance, but also assists with those pesky online algorithms by showing it’s worth bringing up in searches and promotions. Outside of the normal seller websites, you can also use GoodReads to post a review, as well as discover a treasure trove of millions of amazing books out there.

  2. Please spread the word! Sharing with others is absolutely the largest factor in bringing awareness to this book.

It’s been a hell of a ride—7 years by now, actually—to arrive at this very moment.

Thank you so very much, from the bottom of my heart, for your support. I cannot wait to hear what you think of Scouts Out!: A Kiowa Warrior Pilot’s Perspective of War in Afghanistan.

Please see below for ordering links, and happy reading!
