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: Sex, Spies and Lies Update

A rough estimate is that the “The Specialists: Sex, Spies and Lies” adaptation and edit is about 95% complete. The cover/poster art that was to have been released this week will be released next week. No changes or problems. I have decided to push everything back a week. I decided to set the release for December 4, 2013 instead of November 27, 2013. The idea of releasing it over the Thanksgiving Day weekend suddenly made me uneasy. I started to feel a bit like a part of the capitalist gone mad world of corporate America… defiling a national tradition for profit… forcing employees to work on the holiday… forcing employees to abandon long-planned family gatherings… and still not paying them a living wage. Not that I have any employees. I just did not want to be seen as contributing to that sick and twisted mentality. 🙂

The Specialists: At Any Cost

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.
