Today marks 6 weeks until the release of Lost in the Plains, the Ark City Confidential Chronicles, Book Three. In just a scant 4 weeks, we will have a cover reveal.
As the main part of the story involves an escaped German POW heading to Ark City, presumably to commit an act of sabotage, I was fortunate to visit the remnants of one of 16 actual POW camps here in Kansas during the Second World War. Camp Concordia POW Camp is staffed by volunteers and accepts donations. They sit a few miles north of Concordia, Kansas. Paul Rimovsky was my guide when I visited last year. There truly is so much history that we are unaware of.
I have spoken to many native Kansas who were not aware of its existence and its importance in the war effort. While there was never an escape from this prison camp, I’m certain those who take care of this historical treasure will indulge the literary necessity of fabricating one.
Stay tuned for excerpts in forthcoming weeks.
