For folks who only read e-books: High Desert Rats is now available as an ebook on amazon. Of course you can own all three of the books in the collection Battle Rattle and Other Stories if you want a physical book. But for people who already read the other two and don't want to add another book to their bookshelves (or whatever it is that makes you prefer digital over physical books), now you've got the option.
What is High Desert Rats about?
In the summer of 2000, Sean doesn’t want Derrick to join the USAF and leave him in the Mojave Desert. But it seems there’s nothing Sean can do to change Derrick’s mind, and what’s worse, is that the one thing Sean desperately wants to tell Derrick is exactly the thing that Sean fears will end their friendship forever.
That's the description from the amazon sales page, and it is as straight forward as it gets. Thanks to all who've been so supportive in the past. I hope that this book helps to shine a little more light on who Derrick Vezchek (the narrator of Battle Rattle and three of the stories in Waiting for the Enemy) as well as helps anyone interested in Sean (the narrator of two stories in Waiting for the Enemy) to see him in a much more complete way.
Here's the cover, in case you want to look at a picture.
