Sometimes when you hear screams during a storm…the screams are real.
It’s been nearly six months since Eliza Christie created the vigilant August the 18th to combat the American Empire’s most powerful mob. She’s seen her share of triumph and glory…but it cost the lives of over a dozen ex-military vets who have elected to put their lives in her hands. The time has come to end the bloody war once and for all.
In August of 2009, I wrote a 90-page screenplay called “August the 18th” It was an organized crime thriller set in the future revolving around three notorious outlaws. The next month, I wrote a more action-packed 120-page prequel to that screenplay called “The Three Kings of Ybor”. It was made to sensationalize how those three outlaws rose to infamy.
After a five-month campaign, I’m finally releasing the last e-book of the “Three Kings of Ybor” series. I just wanted to thank you guys, my friends and family for the enormous support you’ve shown me. It’s not easy, so the encouragement is always welcomed. I know many of you have been asking for hard copies of the books and after much consideration, I’ve decided to honor your request and make the series available for print by mid to late November. I’m taking a risk by doing this because I’ve been told that it’s harder to sell the printing rights once they’re already in circulation.
But that’s all right. My well runs deep. As long as I live, I’ll continue to create new stories, new characters, and new worlds. It’s difficult and oppression comes from all fronts, but I’ll prevail. Believe in me and you won’t be disappointed.
The “Three Kings of Ybor” will always be my flagship piece. Until the day I die I will always keep developing it as a franchise that can be made into video games, TV shows and of course, the dream of having it appear on the big screen. I’ve already written an 80-page treatment for a second novel that takes place three years after the events of “The Three Kings of Ybor” saga. It’s called “The Pierce Syndicate”.
Thanks for everything – Sincerely, your good-natured storyteller, Rock Kitaro
