Profoundly talented author and EAA Chapter 211 member John Wilkes IV’s latest novel, Frigatefire, is finally available!
Frigatefire is the highly anticipated sequel to John’s first novel, Raventross, so if you have not read that one, John strongly recommends you read it before reading Frigatefire. While they will soon be available through distribution sources like Amazon, John would appreciate it very much if you would order his books through his publisher’s website, www.cdespublishing.com or his own website www.johnburwellwilkes.com The cost is the same, but Amazon, like all book distributors, takes a huge chunk of the proceeds on the books they sell. With the new “print on demand” logic, John and his publisher hope the small profit they make from in-house sales will finance the large scale printing of books to go to the big distributors who can sell worldwide.
Writing these novels has been a source of great enjoyment for John, but his ultimate dream is to one day see his novels on the big silver screen! John said, “I know my dream is a real long shot, but I also remember that the most common early reaction I received from readers of Raventross is the opinion it would make an outstanding movie. I can’t think of anything that would be more fun than being an author/advisor on a movie set.”
If you read and enjoy John’s books, he would very much like to know what you think about them. EAA Chapter 211 Member Karl Kotecki read Raventross in early 2013 and wrote a review you can read by clicking here.
