BOERNE, Texas, Dec. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- After years of writing, editing, and refining Jack Lyndon Thomas of lyndonjacks publications announces 3 eBooks available now* at Amazon and soon at other major eBook retailers. The novel will appeal to adult readers who love treachery and reckoning, conspiracy and combat, romance and heartache, along with sex and sensitivity fueled by action dialogue and fast-moving, easy-flow narrative.


Training Runs and Lights on the Water - Impressions in the Sand are memoirist's works based upon 120,000 miles of motorcycling spread over twenty-plus years,interweaving my love of nature with experiences from childhood to soldering to a failed marriage to attempts at growing up. Engaged as a CPA in the corporate world I used the motorcycling forays to explore my meaning of life while healing from an affliction I didn't know I had--PTSD--what I like to call The Combat Hangover. Both books include in excess of 100 quality photographs and route maps. Additionally, in Lights on the Water, I have given voice to the motorcycle, a BMW K1200 RS, who, as the War Horse, serves as an alter ego.

The Monsoon Killed the Tiger - A Novel of Deceit and Betrayal

"We have unfinished business."

On receiving the cryptic letter postmarked 25 June 2002, Kannon Ballard aborts a motorcycle adventure in the San Juan Mountains and forsakes a girlfriend to return to Việt Nam, a country he desperately has tried to forget. Now a retired CPA and hard-drinking divorcee, Kannon still harbors shame and disgrace due to an ambush that annihilated his patrol.
Kannon's dogged perseverance draws him into a web of past and present atrocities, conspiracy, bootlegged weapons, drug trafficking, and passion, and thrusts him into a combative climax on a storm-ridden night in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of New Mexico.

Training Runs: The Regenerative Power of Motorcycling Back Roads

While healing from war, divorce, and career shifts, I ventured on 15 motorcycle Training Runs between 1982 and 2002. My excursions, all taken on street bikes, are recounted here.
The journals chronicling these adventures reflect how the accumulated mileage cleansed my mind and nurtured growth. Several journeys were undertaken while on furlough from the soul-deadening perils of industry—discharging CPA duties as chief financial officer for two mid-sized companies.
When in the past someone asked me what I did, I responded that I was a CPA, loved photography, and wrote a little on the side. Now when somebody asks the question, I tell them I'm a writer, photographer, motorcycle rider, and jeep driver who does a little accounting on the side.

Lights on the Water - Impressions in the Sand: A Motorcycling Odyssey

*Avalilable mid-January 2014

Lights on the Water/Impressions in the Sand: A Motorcycling Odyssey chronicles a 105-day motorcycling adventure I undertook in 2003 that covered 18,000 miles, often under difficult road situations. Weather conditions ranged from electric-vest-cold to suffocating heat.
This journey roams from Texas through the Dakotas, three Canadian Provinces, on to Alaska, then south along North America's west coast, Death Valley, Arizona, and New Mexico, culminating in the Texas Big Bend Country.
