The cover/poster art for the second episode titled “The Specialists: Sex, Spies and Lies.” If you view it next to the art for “The Specialists: At Any Cost,” you may think you see a pattern. We will see.

Also, due to promotional considerations with Amazon the release date has been reset to its original date of December 18, 2013. Look on the bright side… only 241 days to Comic-con!

The Specialists – A Bit of History

The post below is a partial repost from another blog, Cyber Hermit, where I had originally unveiled the cover art for “The Specialists: At Any Cost.” It gives a bit of the history that eventually brought about the “revival” of “The Specialists.” I thought it needed to be here as well.

Some of you may remember a webcomic I did many years ago, 2003 to 2005, called “The Specialists”… most of you will not. However, though it was small, its following was very devoted. I loved the discussions and debates about the characters, the good guys, the bad guys, etc. we would have in the forums. And I loved those who read “The Specialists.” Due to a number of personal issues “The Specialists” webcomic ceased production. However, I could never quite bring myself to bury it. Too many stories. Too many characters. With the ongoing revolution in ebook publishing, I saw an opportunity and decided late last year to bring it back as a novella series. It is my hope to produce four or five installments each year. The first installment is ready to release with the next two in various stages of completion. I posted an image of the cover art for the first installment yesterday on my Facebook page. A promotional video has been completed and should be available soon. I will embed and/or link to it here.

And, please, feel free to visit, follow and friend me on Facebook and Twitter. A Facebook page dedicated to “The Specialists” is also up and running at

P.S. – For those that do remember “The Specialists” from the webcomic, “The Specialists: At Any Cost” is an adaptation of the first story arc that was originally titled “The Specialists: A Reasonable Chance of Success.”

What if… The Normandy invasion had failed… Hitler had been assassinated… Russia had betrayed the Allies in 1944… Dewey had defeated Roosevelt… Germany had not lost the war… The war had ended in stalemate… What would our world be like?

Welcome to the world of The Specialists.

“The Specialists” is a continuing novella series set in a world of politics, spies and lies where history took a different path. Each installment of this continuing series is its own self-contained story.

A new President, a wounded ally and little time. It is going to be a busy day. In “The Specialists: At Any Cost,” the elite C.I.A. Specialist unit is tasked with smuggling a wounded operative out of France before he is captured and unravels an underground network in France and Germany fighting against the Third Reich of the 21st century.

“The Specialists: At Any Cost,” the first in the series, was released September 18, 2013.

Welcome and Please Be Patient

I am opening this blog to help fill in the communication gap of Twitter and Facebook. I tend to need more than 140 characters to say what I want and I have discovered there are a lot of you who simply do not like Facebook… at all. So this will be yet another way for us to keep in touch with one another. It will take a few days or so for me to get things tweaked the way I like them, but I am familiar with WordPress and the Suffusion theme. In the meantime, I would appreciate it if you would bookmark this little bit of the ‘verse in your browser and stop by to see what new is brewing with “The Specialists” and the other forthcoming works. Yeah, that was a not too subtle hint.  😉

Just a reminder that the first installment of my novella series “The Specialists” was released September 18, 2013. You can purchase it easily by clicking on the link to the right. $0.99… less than a latte.

Take care, be well and keep flying.
