To My Readers:


I have a lot to be thankful for in 2016. First and foremost... after 20 long years and 2 trips down the aisle only to be left at the altar... the MEG MOVIE was greenlit and filming is complete! There are many people that deserve to be thanked, but at the top of the list is producer BELLE AVERY. It's extremely difficult to resuscitate a tentpole production in Hollywood, and the big shark's prior keepers had abused her. Belle nursed her back to health and recruited the absolute top people... beginning with Wayne Wei Jiang at Gravity Productions. The film features an all-star cast, led by Jason Statham who really really WANTED to play Jonas Taylor. That means everything to me, because (like you) I want to see a successful franchise, not just one film. And the producers surrounded Jason with three incredible beauties in Bingbing Li, Ruby Rose, and Jessica McNamee, and great supporting actors in Rainn Wilson, Cliff Curtis, Robert Taylor, Masi Oka, Olaf Olaffsan, Winston Chau, Page Kennedy... and many more!

MEG will be an event film, and I'll start thinking about it when I sit down to pen the January 2018 newsletter.

Right now, I'm working 7 days a week, 15 hours a day on polishing my 16th thriller that had been titled UNACKNOWLEDGED. The idea came from long conversations with Dr. Steven Greer, the world's foremost authority on UFOs and ETs. The subject is very important because of zero-point-energy, a free and clean and abundant source of energy that was discovered over a century ago by Nicoli Tesla. In 1901, Tesla was preparing to use the planet's own magnetic field as a giant dipole in order to broadcast electricity to ships at sea without wires - an experiment that would have led to free energy and change the world... only J.P. Morgan intervened. It seems the wealthy industrialist had invested in copper wire to use to deliver electricity to homes and businesses and he decided that giving energy to people without charging them was simply un-American.

Before Tesla could conduct his experiment, J. P. Morgan got his pals in Washington to shut it down and confiscate all of the scientist's papers and inventions, leaving him destitute.

It's a pattern that repeats itself throughout our history - every scientist who has ever figured out how to create a true over-unity device has been bought out, shut down, or silenced (killed) by the powers that be. Remember, it's not enough to invent a true over-unity system, you also have to sell it to the right people who won't quash it, otherwise you must manufacture the design yourself and that requires a lot of money. Either way you'll need a patent, and therein lies the second problem. Section 181 of the U.S. Patent law allows the government to arbitrarily determine if a technology or device poses a danger to our national security. Over the years, elements within the Department of Defense, CIA, NSA, Federal Trade Commission, and the Department of Energy have abused this interpretation of the law in their attempt to safeguard the world's status quo (big energy profits), denying hundreds of patents.

So what does any of this have to do with my novel and Dr. Greer's new book (which I am editing)? Zero-Point-Energy is how these UFOs travel transdimensionally. We know that because we've been reverse-engineering them since 1947 (Roswell) and yeah... I know I sound crazy, but both of these books and Dr. Greer's upcoming documentary UNACKNOWLEDGED (SONY-Orchard films) will hopefully convince the world that these energy systems exist and must be released (fossil fuel industry is preventing that from happening).

View the documentary trailer below.

Since Dr. Greer's book and documentary are called UNACKNOWLEDGED, he asked me to change my thriller so there's no confusion.

HELP ME RENAME THE BOOK and you'll win a top character placement in MEG: GENERATIONS!

Send your title suggestions to me ASAP at subject TITLE.

Dr. Greer has been working on this a long time and I'm honored to be editing his work and to have written a thriller based on HIS LIFE STORY!

We anticipate the release of both books and the movie in mid-April.

Once both books are ready to be sent to the printers (A&M Publishers), I'll begin penning MEG: GENERATIONS.

I'm counting on your support... and promise to blow your minds!

Thank you...thank you...thank you.

Joke of the Month:

One time, W, Vice, and Rummy got snowed in on a hunting trip and they had to sleep together in the same bed. Naturally, as the Decider, W. decided to take the middle where it was warmest. 

About three in the morning Rummy and Vice start moaning, waking W. up. So W. said, 'hey Cheney, what gives?' Dick says, 'Mr. President, I just had a wet dream . . . I dreamt I was getting a felt up by Trump's wife.'

Rummy says, 'That's amazing, Mr. President, I just had the same wet dream.'

W said, 'Heck, fellas, you two sure are lucky. All I dreamt about was skiing.
