Producer and Director Norm Novitsky Pens Novel

Two Faces of a PatriotNorm Novitsky, producer and director of the award-winning In Search of Liberty Constitution movie, has penned a novel titled Two Faces of a Patriot. Billed as a compelling novel for our time, it intertwines factual data and occurrences alongside fictional characters, adventure, politics and a bit of a love story with a time stretch into the near future. The book has a May 25, 2020 release date set.

Novitsky, the creator and principal author of the tale, and contributing author John Truman Wolfe (Mind Games), have served up a captivating story with roots based on a fictional account of real-life events that occurred at the turn of the century while being primarily set in the near future, at a time when paranoia, control and power have changed virtually everything in American society and where tensions have risen dramatically, calling for extreme measures to be taken in the name of freedom.

“New York Times” bestselling author David Farland (The Runelords), one of those who has read a pre-publication edition, said, “It’s been a long time since 1984 came out. Every few years, though, someone comes up with some ideas that kind of play off of that, that show social engineering as it is going on today. This is one of those stories. It deals with a future in which social engineering is moving in such ways that it is impinging on human freedom. I recommend this book and give it five stars.”

While another reviewer, Air Force veteran and author Diann Thornley Read (The Sergey Chronicles), had this to say, “Using the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks and extrapolating into the decades that follow, authors Norm Novitsky and John Truman Wolfe have written an important and powerful novel…one that should be read by every American who values the freedoms established by our Founding Fathers and the Constitution.”

Preorders for Two Faces of a Patriot, are being taken through an Indiegogo campaign where supporters may choose from different perks for their contributions, including Novitsky-autographed trade (quality) paperbacks or even a limited-run hardcover edition.

Grateful American by Gary Sinise review

scott d welch - grateful american by gary siniseI was fortunate to become a member of the Grateful American Launch Team, a group of people who follow Gary Sinise on Social Media, who are Patriots and who love books, which afforded me the opportunity to receive an Advance Readers Copy of his book for review.

Actor Gary Sinise (Forrest Gump, CSI:New York, etc.) wrote “Grateful American – A Journey From Self to Service” which skillfully and wondrously chronicles his life, all the while describing the subtitle perfectly.

In his Prologue the tone of the book is set…there will be much emotion, there will be introspection, there will be memories, and there will be defining moments where ideas come to fruition and where decisions are made. You are being prepared for what is to come in this very personal journey.

In the Prologue, Sinise writes “…my life’s mission and passion today are to shine a light on those who serve and defend, the true heroes who go into harm’s way, volunteering to lay down their lives so we can have the freedom to make something real and good of our own lives.”  You can feel his Patriotism and his pride throughout.

The events detailed in his book leading up to how he goes about accomplishing this mission are quite entertaining and very moving.  The details of relationships, not just with our military and first responders, but with his acting peers, especially those in their early years, show not just a quite talented man but a sincerely humble one.

From beginning to end, page after page, you feel as though you are getting to know Gary, the person, and that if you were ever fortunate enough to meet him in person one day, it would be like two old friends shaking hands and hugging, though it would be vastly one-sided in that knowledge.

Sinise is certainly fulfilling his mission and passion.  Evidence, outside the book, is quite abundant.  To check out his recent, and former, activities with and for our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families and those in need please visit the Gary Sinise Foundation and his Lt Dan Band website.

I am proud to share and support his journey.

Releasing February 12, 2019 and several places can be found here.
