If Bill Clinton Were an Evil Tyrant, He'd Be Senator Aldridge!

I must admit, I am not that political a person, but I have paid attention this year because I know this is one of the most important elections in US history. To make a fair judgment call, I've watched both the RNC and DNC coverage. All I can say is, wow, I was blown away by Bill Clinton's speech at the DNC. Regardless of your chosen party, whether you love him or hate him, Slick Willy can deliver a speech. He's quite the orator! I thought he was calm, cool, collective, and held nothing back. I don't know how many of you read Order of 5ive, but I must say that if Bill Clinton were a greedy, evil tryant in charge of a secret government program designed to create monsters and super soldiers, he'd be Senator Aldridge from the 5ive series, particularly season two, which launched in July. 

When James and I plot storylines, we always look for outside resources to inspire our characters. When we created Senator Aldridge, I envisioned Aldridge as Bill Clinton possessed by a maniacal money hungry demon, bent on total US control, and in Order of 5ive Season Two, when Senator Aldridge ran for president and gave his nomination speech, it truly turned out to be something like Clinton's recent speech, at least in my mind, except for a ton of lies Aldridge was spreading, ;)

So, thank you President Clinton for inspiring one of our characters, though I don't view you quite as evil as our Senator Aldridge.

Order of 5ive: Season Two: Episode Nine: Exposed

Having grown tired of Senator Aldridge's games, King takes things into his own hands, scheduling an unauthorized meeting with the West Coast Order to confront the two planted spies. With their covers blown, King threatens Spades and Clubs with untraceable deaths and sends the pair packing on a lone mission to prove their worth and loyalty. While hunting the "Porcupine Man" the two come to grips with the realization that King isn't the evil man that Senator Aldridge made him out to be. Meanwhile, back on the East coast, Ace and Heart finally allow their relationship to unfold and they officially begin dating, in secret. But while out and about, Jack and Diamond spot the new couple, which makes Jack question Diamond about their own hidden love.

Will Spades and Clubs succeed and prove their loyalty? Will Ace and Heart become a couple? Will Diamond quit hiding her feelings for Jack? The only way to find out is to read this episode!

My New Series is Coming Along Nicely

Just to keep everyone in the loop, I've decided to grace 711 Press with a brand new adventure, which will be unveiled next year (still can't get over the long wait myself, trust me). But it will be a whopper of a story. I'm all about mystery and detecting so that will figure into my series. Yes I said series, folks. No one-offs for the kid. This series, however, will be a departure from the Kevin Bailey book A Dirty Business, a series which is now on hiatus thanks to the new deal I signed with 711 Press a few months back. Things are looking up and I'm excited to be writing within their universe, since all of the Movie and TV Books exist there. Avid 711 readers must know this by now, however.

At any rate, look for the bizarre and downright mysterious, as I plan on delving into uncharted territory with this one. We're talking voodoo, hexes, psychic abilities, government conspiracies and cover-ups (hey, it wouldn't be a 711 Press product without 'em) and much, much more. I believe I've created a strong, mystrious protagonist with a dark past that should intrigue new readers and longtime fans alike for years to come.

Keep you posted.
