Robert Selfe, the editor of the books in The Z Redemption Trilogy, has written an interesting article of trivia about the writing of the novels. In the near future I will post the entire piece on the author website. I think the growing number of readers of these two (eventually three) novels will very much enjoy Robert’s notations. Here is a brief excerpt:
“When The Z Redemption was finished, it was too long, so several chapters were shortened and combined. One chapter was left out of the book but posted on line as “Awakening from the Golden Sleep.”
Originally, the second novel was supposed to be a prequel, and Robert had begun research on Pablo Escobar, the Columbian drug lord. Escobar, like David, was born in 1949, and the novel was intended to parallel the life and career of these two men. After a few months, Robert asked for a new direction for the sequel because the story of David’s descent into a dark place was just too depressing.
Daniel came up with an alternate story. He envisioned a character named Corvette Nightfire walking into a casino just as a beautiful woman comes running out and, after shoving a duffle bag into his arms, runs off. That’s all there was. The rest of the story grew from there….”
When gunfire erupts in a Las Vegas casino, a beautiful woman thrusts a heavy bag into the arms of Corvette Nightfire. Commanding him in Spanish, which he does not understand, she shoves him and flees to an awaiting car. In a flash, Corvette’s destiny is changed. He must track the disappeared girl as he becomes the hunted.This non-stop, romantic sequel to The Z Redemption will leave you breathless! http://www.danielwetta.com
Great news! Now, in addition to Amazon.com and Createspace.com, you can purchase the paperback edition of Corvette Nightfire at Barnes and Noble online!This novel is garnering great reviews on Amazon and Goodreads already! (Here is the Goodreads link: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/21859138-corvette-nightfire.)
Recently released, Corvette Nightfire is the second book of The Z Redemption Trilogy. It stands on its own as a back-against-the-seat read, however. The editor of the novels, Robert Selfe, helped write the scenes at the World Series of Poker. An excellent poker player himself, Robert lent wonderful credibility to these nail-biting sections of the novel.
I am very excited to announce that I have been working with the talented Michael Messina of http://jacketcat.com/ to come up with a new jacket cover for The Z Redemption to commemorate its release in just a couple more weeks as a paperback edition also! Michael is producing the jacket covers for the complete trilogy. So look for The Z Redemption in paperback as well!
