Go and read the new reviews posted on my company's website for #SixGears. Some of y'all just may be interested in this story. Oh, and BTW, the sequel is now complete and in editing. 🤯

Hell ya!

First round of editing is almost in the bag for the sequel.

If readers enjoyed the outcome of M.O.'s and his crew's journey, and how Six Gears as a whole ended, I think you'll be blown away when you see what happens to everyone next.

I'm just sayin'! Be ever so prepared.

Tentative publish date for Six Gears sequel. 10/01/2020. :bouncy:

The date could be moved closer or further depending on... :eyebrow:

Beta books are being prepared. :D

Nice work Ant! Looking forward to another good read.

Thanks. Still working to bring something good to the table.

"...A few minutes later, Shift was heading out of Ine’s front door to get into his LS3 equipped sedan. He had the journey of a long ride ahead of him to get home. Ine lived at least an hour away from his house with no traffic. A few minutes into his drive, Shift was feeling great on his morning cruise home. The rays from the sun warmed his skin, traffic was almost nonexistent, and the breeze coming in through the sunroof and windows danced across the hairs on his arms. The pleasure he was experiencing mimicked laying in a hammock on a Caribbean island while sipping a blended chopped-ice alcoholic beverage under clear blue skies with a twist of a light breeze. Shift had his music at a pleasant decibel level while he cruised in sixth gear traveling at eighty miles-per-hour. That hour of free-spirited enjoyment lasted all the way until his exit from the freeway..."

Changed it up a little. Still editing. Trying to find the right touch, feel, and read. :eyebrow:

She's just about done. I'll keep you all posted.


I reread some of my first book while comparing it to my writing and editing in the sequel, and damn, I see so much improvement. I wish I could go back and tweak a few things on the first one. But, the second book is going to be a much more smoother and fluid read, so the improvement is bringing a smile to my face. And, the plot twists.... :bouncy:

I'm so looking forward to seeing both books in movie form in the future.

A quick question for whoever.

This is just a thought/idea. During all of this, is M.O. awake or dreaming? 🤔

Synopsis Draft
 
Six Gears - ************** (The Sequel)

Synopsis Draft : (Yes, I will have to edit this. Key word here is draft. It's late, and I'm tired).

Although Marquis “Move Out” Mariolis willed his friends the resources to make his goals become reality after his disappearance, new hindrances surfaced in the lives of those who interacted with Move Out around the time of his surmised death. Back to back obstacles were a constant battle for anyone trying to offer something positive toward the completion of Move Out’s requested wishes. Compounding stumbling blocks affected everyone from teenagers who had a traumatic childhood, to models who were part-time college students, in addition to city council members in different communities while reaching as far as the executive branch of state government. However, through all the turmoil, Move Out had secretly done so many good deeds prior to his untimely departure and in his absence, karma was able to counterbalance the negativity evolving in the lives of those who once interacted with Move Out. Did Move Out execute enough good deeds to bring about a positive change in his community, or will the same identity politics continue to hurt those who were closest to Move Out?

A small snippet from Six Gears' sequel.
 
Let me know what conclusions, if any, you can draw from this passage.




"...M.O. hung up the phone. His teeth were tightly compressed together from his jaw’s clamping force. The phone, if it could breathe, was getting the life squeezed out of it while under the grip of his right hand. He rotated his arm back, and then threw the phone against the cemented brick wall in the stairwell. The phone exploded upon impact creating plastic shrapnel flying all over the staircase. He rushed back into the condo and grabbed his main phone..."

Possible spoiler from first book:


I conclude that one of his side businesses were seized or he got robbed again.

Publication time frame for Six Gears - GP Shift, the sequel, is late summer early Fall. Hopefully, some of you will jump on the story and see what all the action is about.

Oh, and we still have plenty of Six Gears copies left in our inventory. Actually, I'm about to manufacture a few dozen more in preparation for the sequel's release.

Get your copy at : www.athypowersports.com

I want to thank the community for their support, and just know, some of you will be coming along on my journey in the near future. I'll be in touch.
