Cursed 2

First off, I have to say I’m absolutely astounded not only by how well Cursed is selling, but also by how much you guys seem to like the book. I worried it might be too dark and gritty, but it seems like it was exactly what you guys wanted. It makes me glad because I was so worried about this book I actually got physically sick.

Before I say any more, I’d like to say thank you to everyone who picked up a copy. It’s truly a dream come true to be able to write for all of you, and I hope to continue to do so to the best of my ability.

I’d also like to say that I sort of stopped writing the Dirge book right at about 15k to work on Cursed 2. I’d started the Dirge book immediately after finishing Cursed because I worried no one would like Cursed. Clearly, I was very wrong. Wouldn’t be the first time, and probably won’t be the last time.

Still, I’m making good progress on Cursed 2, and am about 40% of the way through writing the book. I also spoke to some friends and my lovely wife, and they advised me that you guys probably want to know what’s so special about Sera. Well, fear not, you’ll find out why.

I also wrote a scene where Mac leaps off a motorcycle and punches a helicopter out of the sky. So there’s that. Best of both worlds?

I’m really trying to have the book out by Mid-March. Writing it shouldn’t be the problem, but I still don’t even have a cover because I was stupid and didn’t order one until Mid-February. This time when I ordered the cover, I also ordered a cover for Cursed 3, but I’m not making any promises for that one.

I hope you all can wait that long. I’m going as fast as I can, but I still want to ensure a quality read for all of you.

Still, I thought I’d give you all a glance at the first unedited paragraph of Cursed 2.

As I stood there staring at my wall, trying to process how the hell I was going to finish a job I couldn’t remember by the end of the day so some kidnappers would release my sister and her son while they still retained all their pieces, someone slipped a garrote over my head. My left hand shot up, barely getting between the piano wire and my throat as it pulled tight. The loop bit into my flesh, slicing open my palm while my attacker tried to pull me backward off my feet. Yeah, today was going to be awesome!

Teasing

Pierce Ambrose. That was the name of the man I’d been sent to kill. The man I’d failed to kill. I have one day left to make good on my contract before the thugs holding my sister and her son start sending me pieces of them.

Pierce Ambrose.  A man with a secret I didn’t uncover until it was too late to turn back, too late to give up on trying to kill him.

Now, if I want to see my sister and nephew again, I have to try one last time.

My name is Mac Brennan, and this time, I’m playing for keeps.
