Grab a coffee or kick your boots up. I'm going to throw a lot of information at you.

I'm getting lots and lots of messages asking me when the next Notus book will be released. Soon. November. I'm not giving out a specific date, because I'm saving all my promotions for when it's available. That's a new tactic I'm trying with this series, and it really worked great.

But, I'm going to give you some info. It's time.

Now, if you all can remember I said there would be 5 books in the Notus MC series. Since Chuck's book is the next one to release that leaves one more book in the series that will come out at the beginning of 2018. If you haven't noticed, I always release either the first book of a new series or the most sought-after book at the beginning of the year. It's been that way…forever. So, here's information ahead of time. Rich's book, the 5th and final book of Notus MC series, gets the spotlight.

I feel like there should be some neon lights flashing, but let's move on to more info.

A few weeks ago, I asked readers on my Facebook page what they think Rich's story is. Why has he been missing for over 25 years? I'll let you know that nobody guessed right. Zilch. Nada. Didn't even come close. Because nobody has any idea what I've done or where I've gone with Rich's story, I'm extremely excited. In fact, after Chuck's book releases next month and before Rich's book releases in 2018, I'm going to promote the last book ahead of time. There's several reasons for this…

1) Readers will already have seen how Rich's absence has affected Wayne, Glen, Thad, and Chuck.

2) These are all standalone books. Readers can pick up Rich's book without reading the first 4 books of the series. That means Rich's book does not cover the past. I NEVER repeat history in my books. The 5th Notus book will start with Rich as a 46-year-old man. Yes, he's alive. Oh, spoiler. If new readers become interested in my teasers, they will more than likely want to go buy the first 4 books and see what kind of devastation Rich's absence caused Notus Motorcycle Club members.

3) This is the biggy. For readers of the series, I want readers to judge Rich before you get his story. Love him, hate him, pity him…pick an emotion you think he deserves. Get a good grip on how you think you feel about him from what you know in the first 4 books (which isn't much!). I want you to think you know his story…much like we do in real life when we see a missing person case. Regardless if it's a child or an adult, man or woman, we judge what caused them to run away or go missing. It's human nature to think you know the reason by the information you hear. The Notus MC series should be no different. I want you to open Rich's book in 2018 and be solid with how you think you feel. Maybe you'll hate him for how much hurt he's caused Wayne. Maybe you'll feel sorry for him because he lost the girl he loved to murder. Maybe you'll be resentful because Rich wasn't there for Thad, who lost his sister and his MC brother at the same time. Maybe you pity him because Glen worries about Rich all hours of the night. Maybe you want to punch Rich because of the guilt that Chuck had to live with. Maybe you love Rich because Mrs. B. loves Rich as if he is her own son. 

Do all that because I can guarantee you'll do a 180-degree turn, flip, circle multiple times during Rich's story…and probably be ready to throw rocks at me. This is why I'll promote Rich's story ahead of time. I'm going to help you judge him before you meet him.

I need to stop talking. The next time you hear me utter news about Notus MC series or Chuck's book will be on release day. Get ready.
