Writers conference scheduled for Sept. 12-14, 2012 in Denver.

New York Times best-selling author and former Green Beret, Bob Mayer understands first hand the training involved in the Special Forces’ Trojan Warrior Program.

With his novel, “Psychic Warrior,” Mayer writes about how the program could have been gone. The program takes warfare into the virtual plane through avatars, and then reinsert covert operatives into the real world. The results could have been devastating.

Mayer’s inside knowledge and experience gives the novel an authentic and credible feel, leaving readers to wonder where reality ends and fiction takes over. And this is one of the reasons he was selected to lead the training at The Sangria Summit: A Military Writers’ Conference.

Mayer has published more than 50 books. They have hit the New York Times, Publishers Weekly, Wall Street Journal and numerous other bestseller lists. His book, “The Jefferson Allegiance,” was released independently and reached No. 2 overall in sales on Nook.

Mayer entered West Point and volunteered and passed selection for the Special Forces as a Green Beret. Mayer’s obsession with mythology and his vast knowledge of Special Forces, mixed with his strong desire to learn from history, is the foundation for his science fiction series “Atlantis,” “Area 51” and “Psychic Warrior.” Mayer is a master at blending elements of truth into all of his thrillers, leaving the reader questioning what is real and what isn’t. Mayer’s military background, coupled with his deep desire to understand the past and how it affects our future, gives his writing a rich flavor not to be missed.

For an aspiring author to write their wartime memoir, novel or a history/biography, Mayer will teach active-duty service members and veterans how to take their unique military background and translate it into a book.

The writers’ conference is scheduled for Sept. 12-14, 2012 in Denver at the Marriott City Center. This intensive conference brings combat veterans, journalists, historians, accomplished authors, aspiring writers of the military genre and book agents together to learn from each other and connect with like-minded people.

Join the the Sangria Summit: A Military Writers' Conference in Denver from Sept. 12-14, 2012, and learn from one of the techno-thriller authors on the circuit today.
