Our own 'Mingo Kane'

Just finished "Scars of the Prophet" on Kindle; very intense, vivid characters that remind you of fellow warriors and the people that surround them.

Excellent read

Congrats, brother!

Scars of the Prophet-Just finished it. Excellent read. Well written, great story. Finished it in two sittings.

Good book that a lot of us can relate with to some degree.

Just bought the Kindle version. Looking forward to it.

Any chance "Gemini Man" can be on Kindle?

A big shout out to Mingo Kane.

He signed his new book, "Prophet of Cobb Hollow" and sent it to my son, the budding writer.

Thank you, Mingo!

My son is hoarding the new book right now.

It was my honor, you tell that young hooah to write a story...create a world only he knows, and the world will read it to way he wrote it. One word at a time.

The Prophet of Cobb Hollow was outstanding! What a great historical novel loved the action and the conversations were well thought out.

I'm really digging it also, but I've gotten busy and havn't finished it yet. He's heading off to WW1 at this point.

Yeah...That's the 'Swackhammer' phase of the book.
