THE WAR BENEATH by TSJ is a 2019 Kindle Book Awards Semi-Finalist

In the wake (see what I did there?) of the discovery that The Savage Deeps was actually a Semi-Finalist in the 2022 Kindle Book Awards, I just discovered that The War Beneath was also a Semi-Finalist, three years earlier!

I’m a little shocked by this, but obviously pleased.  The book also won the 2018 GLOBAL THRILLER Award, as well as being a Finalist/Semi-Finalist in other contests as well.

The Shadow of War is on the cusp of release, which has made this news even sweeter.  Thank you so much for the support; the response to this series has been more than I could have hoped for.  It’s part thriller, part science fiction, part cold war/espionage/spycraft, and all fun.  Escapist entertainment is what I crave, and that’s why I write it.  Thank you, all!
