Ebola is a disease. Genetically altered Ebola is a pandemic.

Xavier Fisher (Fish) is a PhD candidate in Genetics at Harvard who's life is on the right track. Then, a mysterious lab burns down, a fellow PhD candidate goes missing, and hard evidence of an Ebola virus that has never been seen before is recorded.

When Fish discovers his mentor is part of a secret cabal of anti-populationists trying to eliminate 90% of the human population with an Ebola-hybrid virus, he vows to stop them no matter how many times they try to kill him.

Fish won't make anyone's short list of characters who can save the world. And because he winds up going on the run, any allies Fish has are in and out of his life. But, never count-out a man who's smart, brave, and relentless.

If you enjoy Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, Brad Taylor, David McCaleb, C.G. Cooper, David Archer, Stephen Templin, Tim Tigner, Joshua Hood, Mike Ryan, and Russell Blake, you'll enjoy Population Elimination, a dynamic standalone thriller in Lucian's Conspiracy series.

About to get the last piece of it, because we are selling the CA house and buying the dream house in my hometown for cash so zero debt. Last piece is being able to write what I like. (Which is always romance), and live how I like. The other pieces are what I've been lucky enough to do from the start: not have a day job and spend 2-5 months a year in AU and NZ. And most importantly, recently I was able to drop everything and spend 3 weeks taking care of my sister without losing my job.  Can't beat that.

My novel was traditionally published, but I retained the film rights and I am in discussions with a couple of producers (i.e. waiting for them to get back to me) regarding my adapted TV mini-series screenplay version. I am also adapting another screenplay into a novel. The two disciplines are very different, but I do feel my writing has improved in both over the years due to switching between them.

The increase in cable/online/streaming outlets means there is a growing demand for new content, so I think the future is very bright for writers generally.

(Deleted my last response, as it went further in depth than anyone would care to read.)

I want to succeed in having written the series that's been bumping around in my brain for five years. It's been far more difficult than I anticipated to get the words out for a variety of reasons, but I'm not giving up. Just having created something of my very own from the ground up would bring me immense pride and joy. Seeing those stories sell would probably send me into rapture.

I read it before you deleted it :P You two sound interesting. Dinner-party-invitation worthy.

I had an odd thing happen. The email arrived with the usual Excel attachment. When I used the preview function to view it, it showed an old address and 0 earnings, but the correct date. When I actually downloaded the Excel spreadsheet, it seemed correct. They haven't responded to my email with the screenshot asking about the difference.


That's exactly what has happened to me. Over a week and no reply. I'm getting very frustrated at the lack of communication. Plus worried about where the heck my money is.

I'm listening to the LOTR audios.

That's awesome.  I've read it twice, but it has been a few years.  Wanted to do the whole Christopher Lee annual reading, but that never happened.  I might actually read it again after finishing in honor of the late, great Saruman.  He will be missed.  Who is the reader of the version you are listening too?  Do you enjoy their style?

I was in a similar position about 10 years ago with a different topic, but buried in the deluge of trying to keep a staggering community afloat (I was getting something insane like a million hits a week for a while and got lucky when my web host decided to upgrade me for free due to the sensitive topic, as that saved me hundreds a month when I couldn't really afford to keep it going. It was a hard topic to monetize.)

But eventually...I let it go. I backed away. I pursued some writing projects in that vein. Some did well, many flopped. I did better when I wasn't feeling frantic.

Now, I still have my network but it's not on my shoulders. I've spread it out with Facebook groups and things I don't host. And let conversations play out in comment threads. And...it's okay. It was fine to back away. Volunteers to help out pop up as I need them. And I'm free again.

Don't burn out. Take some steps back and look at what is essential.
