This story follows a group of people employed by a business that ostensibly runs a Christmas tree farm. The company is headquartered in Pennsylvania, on the East Shore of the Harrisburg metropolitan area near Hershey. And while it actually does farm Christmas trees, it has another reason for existing: it’s a cover for a private military company that has received letters of marque and reprisal from the U.S. government to hunt down and neutralize national security threats.
The story opens by quickly introducing the main characters and then they are off on their first mission. They deal with all the normal things that people deal with when starting a new job, egos and distrust included. Yet they must overcome these challenges and work together to complete their mission and make sure they all make it home alive.
As is with most of the stories I’m currently writing, I plan to publish “Letters of Marque and Reprisal” serially here at Liberate Liberty and simultaneously at Liberty Island Magazine.
And as always, if you’d like to see original, commissioned artwork for it (instead of my creations), you can help towards that end by purchasing my published books and by contributing to me for my published work at Liberty Island Magazine through the PayPal link that is posted there.
No guarantees of original artwork with any purchases of my books or contributions to me, but that is the only way of there being any possibility of original artwork. Furthermore, it supports my writing, including all the free stories I have already published and that I am about to publish.
