Marine Monday: Sashala Kraevoi



Hey Space Cadets, how is everyone today?  I’m great, I have my wife and mother just finished making their final pass through Operation Breakout before I send it out to my editors, Corey and Thomas.  I’m VERY excited to get that to market and see what readers think of the book.  I’m currently 6k words into a short story, which I’ve tentatively titled “No Marine Left Behind” and I’m very excited about it.  It was my first attempt at a purposely written short story, and my writing progress has improved because of it.  It’s been through one developmental editing pass, and if you need to know more about that you can read about it from my editor by clicking here.


After I finish, I’ll be co-writing another short story for an anthology with best-selling author Chris Kennedy.  My new co-author will be Corey Truax, my current editor and fellow Mesopotamian Veteran.  Yes, you are right to imagine the shenanigans which will follow!  I’ll tell you more about it as we get closer but I will be finishing my Sleeping Legion Series before I jump into anything after my current two short stories.  When I need a break from Maternal Vengeance, I’ll hop over onto a few short stories, but then I want to charge full bore towards the Sleeping Legion Finish Line!


Okay, so on to our regularly scheduled Marine Monday! Today I was leaked, by our friendly neighborhood LegionLeak source, the official bio of Marine Sashala Kraevoi.  I’m currently working on a short story about her journey into The Sleeping Legion.  It’s been hard for her, but you’ll appreciate her appearance in Fortress Beta City and later in Operation Breakout even more after this.  Now the important parts!  Remember, destroy this message after reading it so the anonymous source can live long enough to continually feed us excellent intelligence!  Without further ado, here is the leaked document!




Hopefully you enjoyed this sneak peek into our favorite Marines official record.  If you did, stay tuned for next week as we anxiously wait for the latest documents smuggled our way!



Until next time, stay frosty and don’t forget to keep your powder dry!

    You went into a lot of detail for her records…I like it! I think that’s a great idea so you can help your readers see her in the novel. Do you mind if I use this for my own character bios? I’m really bad at describing characters.

  2. My name is Rater Idtry, I have obtained this document due to a strange encounter with google and a word that ends in “ish”…that’s not actually important…why did I say that?
    REGARDLESS! I have transmitted this information to all the worst known bounty hunters….wait, that’s not right….all the best known meanest bounty hunters (yes, that’s much better). I’ve a price on her head that shall be reminded only by the delivery of book 3! You have 1 hour to comply.
    (Seriously, I know that’s like, an unreasonable deadline, but I’m a villain. Unreasonable, ludicrous deadlines are sort of our mantra.
