Writing - Extracts and equipment.

Steele Extracts
The idea of including extracts of your novels in a blog is not a new one. I was reminded while deciding on some changes to my blog last week and also today reading FC Etier's blog. He pointed out there are several ways of directing the readers' attention to various items therein.

Swiss OM 50 Nemesis Sniper's Rifle


OM 50 Nemesis
TypeBolt-action sniper rifle
Place of originSwitzerland
Specifications
Weight26 to 33 pounds (12 to 15 kg)
Length42 to 59 inches (1,100 to 1,500 mm)

Caliber.50 BMG
Barrels15 to 32 inches (380 to 810 mm)

The above is Patrick A Steele's weapon of choice for long range wet work! He uses it in most of the Steele novels with great skill and accuracy.

This gun makes its entrance in the extract featured on the TAB above with the first section from the latest Steele story 'Inceptus'. By including such information I hope that you are drawn to read more of the book and perhaps delve further back into his earlier adventures.


God Bless
