    I have been reading the Patrick McLanahan series and I am not able to download kindle version of “Skymasters” nor “Night of the Hawk”. After talking with Amazon kindle they have no information about if these two books in the series will ever be published in the kindle version. Is there anything in the works to publish via kindle. I have really enjoyed your writing.

    I knew Brown at Ellsworth AFB when I was a weather forecaster. Good man, wish I knew he would become a writer, would have gotten an autograph. I have enjoyed all of his books o date and am waiting on his next release.

    Dale Brown’s Air Force experience and training gives him the advantage of familiarity with cutting edge, top secret, military technology. He uses his imagination to incorporate this credibly into his narratives. He also speaks the air crew lingo of USAF people. His stories are fast paced and exciting, taking believable characters through top-level international adventures. His knowledge of today’s unfolding political and military crises gives authenticity to his plots. I look forward to his next book.
