New LaFleur/Massie Joint "Shifters" Coming Soon

Hello friends, Gordon here. I wanted to update you on our busy schedule. James and I are finishing up our new book Shifters. This tale will answer a lot of lingering questions many of you may have about other 711 titles, because it ties in elements of the Crisis Trilogy, Kill Factor, and Order of 5ive. Considering that all 711 titles have characters that slip in and out of other Movie and TV Books (we're assuming you've figured that out by now) James and I decided to revisit the Bunker, which was first revealed in Order of 5ive: Ep. 0 - Origins.

We pick up six years after King started the Order, following the story of young Devin Podrick, the most gifted super-human to inadvertently be part of the Order Project before it went mainstream. We'll understand more about the powers the children of the Order possess, as well as reveal more about the old Redrum and revisit the Bunker and the paranormal beasts and experiments that go on a mile beneath the desert, including time travel. Stay tuned, this will be an exciting book.

Finished My Fourth Movie Book: D.N.A.

Wow, it has been a rollercoaster ride since I signed with 711 Press. But I'm not complaining. Daniel Middleton and Jaime Vendera have been wonderful and it's been great having Jaime oversee my 711 projects. I honestly have never been pushed this hard to write, but thanks to Jaime and my wonderful editor Rich, I've been able to complete all three books in the Werecat Saga and my one-off D.N.A. in less than a year. For those of you who are new writers, I can honestly say that it definitely helps when you have a team that has input on your plotting and who can guide you every step of the way.

I've definitely become a much better storyteller thanks to Jaime. And having Rich on the team, all my stories are streamlined and polished. Speaking of editing, Nocturnal was cut by 8,000 words when it was edited, partly due to the 711 movie timeline requirements and also because I tend to ramble in my writings :) But I fixed it this time. Even after three final passes, I only wrote 300 extra words over the minimum requirements. Not that it's what I intended to do, but that's what this story called for. So, good luck editing, Rich, because you can only cut 300 words this time ;)
