The View from Middle Spunk Creek

Launched!

Cloud Warriors has been launched.  A historical thriller with paranormal elements and Amazon jungle adventures, Cloud Warriors pits a lost tribe from the time of the Incas against the guile and greed of big pharma in a struggle that will shape the future of mankind.

A recent review, by English author Veryan Williams-Wynn, is an example of the enthusiastic response that Cloud Warriors has received.

“Cloud Warriors, by Rob Jung is a beautifully written, fast-moving novel with such an original, well researched, plot that it has you hooked from page one and doesn’t let you off until the final page has been turned. Even then, so thought provoking is the tale, that I found myself still mulling it over hours, if not days later.”

Williams-Wynn went on to say, “The suspense and tension builds relentlessly in this high-octane drama keeping the reader gripped by the machinations of ruthless Russian thugs, missile-armed helicopters, magical potions, sexual predators and teleporting characters. Moreover, if like me, you think you can guess the outcome, believe me, this gripping tale is so skillfully woven with its unpredictable twists and turns, that you won’t.”

Launch week was dogged by snow and bad roads.  Lesson: Don’t launch a book in Minnesota in the winter.  Nevertheless, it was a success. Thanks to the Winona Daily News (John Casper), Trempealeau County Times (Zac Bellman) and The Winonan (Zach Bailey), student newspaper at Winona State University, for the publicity. And to Paperbacks and Pieces (Shelley Olsen) and the Trempealeau Hotel (Amy Werner) for your hospitality.

Had a great crowd for the book launch party on Saturday, February 23, at the famous Trempealeau Hotel, including a bunch of high school classmates (one came all the way from Las Vegas) and my high school English teacher.  Having a book launch in my hometown (Trempealeau, Wisconsin, population just over 1,000) was questioned by some, but it was clearly the right choice.  I had a ball.

Three days later, in Minneapolis, I was part of a multi-author event. Despite the (incorrect) prediction of bad weather and bad roads, there was a decent turnout. There would have been more (I know of at least 10 people that canceled) if our weather forecasters hadn’t all graduated from the Chicken Little School of Meteorology.
