Freeper Travis McGee's (Matthew Bracken) ENEMIES FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC now available on Amazon
EFAD Amazon Site ^ | October 5, 2003 | Jeff Head

Posted on 10/05/2003 6:31:25 AM PDT by Jeff Head

Matthew Bracken's (Freeper Travis McGee) Novel:

Has just become available on Amazon!

This is great news for Matt. GO MATT GO!

Enemies Foreign & Domestic is as compelling a fictional novel about liberty and the 2nd amendment as you will ever read. It is packed with real life issues right off today's headlines and the political camps on both sides of the issue. It is also just a good, old-fashioned barnstorming novel that you can't put down.

IMHO, in his first at bat, Matthew Bracken has hit one out of the park.

For folks following Matt's novel, this is very good news and something to congratulate Freeper travis McGee about.

It's also something to spread around because the messages in the book are clear and woven into the plot in a very professional way...a way that will get people to think...particularly those who are being influenced to believe that gun control is somehow a good thing.

Well done Matt!

Matt is a Freeper author who has put his heart and soul into a novel that spreads great conservative and constitutional messages.

This is great news for him.

And a big BTTT back to both of you.

Hope Matt's book gets picked up by a major publisher soon and is in all of the major book stores. It certainly deserves it.

Great news! A Travis bump for a great novel. Thanks for the ping, Jeff. Having difficulty deciding if it was about tomorrow's headlines today or today's headines tomorrow, if that makes sense. It was like dreaming you where visiting a parallel universe only to realize upon awakening that the two universes were beginning to merge.

Exactly. And IMHO, the mark of a truly great author.

Jeff

I noticed the publisher is "Steelcutter Publishing" in San Diego. Google shows this book as their only book published, and shows no website for them. Is this the first book published by Steelcutter, and what is their background?

The plot sounds great, I like the inclusion that Patriots would revolt against giving up their guns.

"It was like dreaming you where visiting a parallel universe only to realize upon awakening that the two universes were beginning to merge."

I love that way of putting it, it's so apt! Brilliant turn of phrase, I wish I had thought of it!

Well, my book series is published by "Alpha Connections" in Emmett, Idaho, which is a DBA for me. Meaning they are self published.

Matt lives in San Diego and self-publishes his book...at least to this point.

You are getting great reviews on Amazon...it says only two, but check them out, there's four or five already listed, most from today.

Numbers are up to...well under 8,000 and for a self-published, non-advertised book THAT IS GREAT!

Congratulations on a successful response. It must feel a bit like exposing oneself at a deep level.

No small thing to write and publish a timely book.

Get started on the next ones ... known as striking while the iron is hot. LOL!

Great post, Jeff -- Thanks!

I too finished Matt's Opus in just a few days -- I couldn't put it down! It was an exciting companion over several fine cigars...

Enemies paints a grim picture of what can easily happen in America when tragic events, coupled with a gun-grabbing power-elite, come crashing together on a pre-arranged collision course. Matt writes like a veteran, and has me eagerly awaiting future work!

Fellow FReepers: I urge you to recommend this work to your non-FReepin' friends as well. Let's help our colleague put this thing on the best-seller list!

So, Travis, when does the next effort come out? ;^)

Thank you for those kind words about The Dragon's Fury Series.

Like Matt's book, its my effort to get good messages, morals and thinking going on out there through what is hopefully an enjoyable and compelling read.

Volume IV will be out in late November,
