Less than FIVE days until The Fifth Column official release!

countdown5dayIn less than one week my book, The Fifth Column, will officially release.  This is a very exciting time for me as you can probably imagine!  I hope some of you are excited as well!  Please continue to share the news with friends, family, or perfect strangers!  There will be some more exciting news that I will share a day before the launch so stay tuned.  I can’t thank all of you enough for sharing the news, telling people about the book, and telling people about me.  I can’t wait to start hearing your feedback and thoughts on the novel.



Could the N-15 UPU be built out of parts from Home Depot?

If you’ve had the chance to see The Fifth Column Halloween Hype Video that my wife and I produced then you may have noticed the cool robotic hand prop that we used at the end of the video.  If you have not had the chance to see the video, please check it out here, and don’t forget to leave comments about how awesome my voice acting was (har har)!


The hand was built using various hardware from Home Depot for a cost of about $50.00.  It has three fingers and an opposing thumb and weighs a pound or two.  Both my wife and I were impressed with how well it turned out.  How would you feel about having the joints welded into a cool static pose and then welding the entire hand onto a steel decorative base and giving this “trophy” if you will as some form of raffle giveaway?

Would anyone be proud to display The Hand of Samuel?  Let me know in the comments or on my Facebook if you think this is a good idea!
