When the GMJ Books started in 2014, I had very vague ideas on what form they will take. They were something new to me, up to then I wrote pure non-fiction, and this was something in between, a fictional storyline, yes, but the history and tactics behind the story, all true and non-fiction. Unlike most authors, I never had any desire to write books, I wrote them because I was bored and had the knowledge to write them. To amuse myself I made the operations harder than what is usually encountered in real life, based on the training maxim of “train hard, fight easy.” As such, in the GMJ hostage rescue book, Code Name Wrangler, a C-130 Hercules cargo plane is rescued, simply because it is harder to do than a Boeing or Airbus (see the book, read by many SWAT across the world, why it is harder). Then I looked at operational methods, doctrine, and wrote the sniper book, Code Name Butterfly, also read by many SWAT across the world, I am told. Code Name Willow Bay, the unique approach method to take ships on the open seas, never revealed before. Code Name Ndebele 14, the unique infiltration method to hostile cities to rescue hostages, never revealed before. Yes, I had fun and the stories kept coming. As I explained in some books, they kept me sane after the unexpected passing of my wife in 2014, the best type of woman that America can produce, super smart, super patriotic, funny and beautiful. I miss her, therefore, the entire GMJ Series is filled with codes for her to smile about, and a love story between the two main characters. That will never change, no main character will ever die, I have control.
There is a tremendous amount of research behind each book, the more I learned, the more concerned I became, leading to the books being used as warnings, very serious warnings in where and how far the West is outplayed by China, Russia, and yes, my own country, South Africa, that leads the world in some military technology (see Code Name Alphabet 32, Code Name Blue Tang, Code Name One Alpha and more). That led to GMJ 35, American Military Might – Debunked, a book that is as controversial as any because it warns that US politicians are writing checks that the US Military and NATO just cannot cash. Many did not like to hear the truth as I and many like me sees it. Recently I increased that book to 600 pages to include the latest Devin Nunes Memo on FBI surveillance on the Trump Campaign – something which is a bigger scandal than Watergate. I predicted that, by the way. The patterns were clear enough and oddly, many times after a GMJ Book is published, the news articles confirm what I wrote. I will say this (and in many GMJ Books), the current Clinton Federal Whitewash Bureau (FBI to you) has powers that even the Nazi Gestapo was denied... the ability to arrest someone for lying to them and unquestionably this is abused as much as is possible against whoever they take a dislike in which is not their favourite daughter, Hilarious Clinton. She was allowed not to take the oath when interviewed most gently about her email scandal of which she is so guilty that any fair trial would be a foregone conclusion. By waving the oath requirements she could not lie officially which was perhaps good since she claimed dozens of times not to remember anyway. And yet this was the Demorats’ best candidate, the woman most qualified to be “president and leader of the free world?” The woman that cannot be missed because she just will not go away. You have no idea how this dragged the “Beacon of Freedom’s” good name through the mud.
As the Series grew, I decided to address the evilness of drug rape, something used often in the Great Game, and so I wrote Code Name Alphabet 32, a book which Facebook flatly refused to advertise, God knows why, perhaps the snowflakes felt abused in some way. Since then, no Facebook ads for GMJ or my books under my real name, none. Code Name Casselberry is another example, the manuscript changed unlawfully by Kindle Scout without any logical explanation - no more Kindle Scout for GMJ either, end of story. Yes, I made a stand. When Apple decided not to help the FBI crack a terrorist’s iPhone, even with a court order telling them to do so, I removed all my books from their stores and wrote their products out of my books, and I will never change my views, end of story. With Code Name One Alpha, I looked at human trafficking, and as expected found a counter-terrorism link. That book helped many, I am proud of it as I am of all my books.
I became friends with many readers, thank you for that, banned a few trolls for their own good. You get some that just cannot be pleased, I stopped caring long before I wrote the first GMJ Novel and decided that they are the curse of any author’s life, but I was told that the books are not actually “Spy Action Thrillers,” they are something else… political analyses, military history, covert warfare, all these were suggested. I thought about the comments, true, the books changed from what I thought in the beginning, they became all the above and more. I decided to reclassify them as “Secret Warfare & Counter-terrorism Operations.” I hope that classification will stick and be there forever. After all, the GMJ Books are there for your enjoyment, thank you for your support. GMJ, 2018
