The line has been pretty quiet on my end. I apologize, but I’ve been working hard to get Anatoly Medlov: Complete Reign, the third book in the Medlov Crime Family Series ready to go out to the world.
On January 15th, we’ll begin taking pre-orders of the paperback on www.latrivianelson.info.
It’s been a long road, and we took into consideration all the suggestions, comments and concerns of the last two books. We also intertwined the Chronicles, so that as you read the short story series, you understand some of what is happening to everyone.
Plus, the Commercial Appeal did a great article on us, and my daughter even smiled. Although Adam and Jordan did not. Typical.
There won’t be any posts from me until January 15th when we launch the Anatoly Medlov website and new video after today. I’ll try to post on all the blogs. I really want this to be great for you guys. It will be like our own Christmas in January. In early February, we’ll also have our first global conference call on the book, so everyone can chime in on their thoughts. Good or bad, it doesn’t matter. If you read this blog, you’re family and have the right to give your opinion.
Thank so much for all of your prayers and support. I want more than anything for you all to love this book.
I’m so excited about the project, and I wish that I was on the blog talking, but I know that you all will kill me if I don’t have this out by the end of January.
Just in case you’ve forgotten, here’s the synopsis:
