Battle Not With Monsters (A Neen Ford Thriller #1)
Author: Overton Scott
Genre: Adult Thriller
Release Date: March 8, 2014


Neen Ford is a loner, drifting from town to town, working as a security guard and teaching martial arts. One hot night in Dallas, she witnesses the brutal murder of a Ukranian prostitute and becomes the killer’s next target. Neen’s never backed down from a fight, but she’s never tangled with a human trafficking ring before. Until now.


Na├»ve young women are being trafficked into the United States by Russian criminals. Someone needs to help them. The police are trying, but they’re not moving fast enough for Neen, who is now being stalked by a man who enjoys inflicting pain.


How far will Neen go to save herself? How far, to save three young women from a life of fear and despair? And what price will she pay for battling the monster? There’s a thin line between hero and vigilante – will she cross it?

I thought I’d have a little fun with a top ten list. Neen Ford, the heroine of my new thriller, Battle Not With Monsters, is a tough cookie. She can land a spinning heel kick or an elbow slash. She’s also handy with a gun. Most guys would be intimidated, but here are ten ways to impress Neen.

1. Never start a sentence with, “I don’t think women should…”
2. Take her shopping at Whole Foods. She loves that place.
3. Once a month, buy her a small carton of Blue Bell chocolate ice cream.
4. Sit through a marathon of Bruce Lee movies one weekend.
5. Admire her abs.
6. Keep an ice pack handy for swelling. Neen picks up a lot of injuries training for fights.
7. Don’t encourage her to eat carbs.
8. Whistle when she tells you how much she can deadlift.
9. Admire honor, courage and sacrifice.
10. Open the door for her. Hey, she likes a man with manners.

Thank you for having me. I hope you enjoy the book, and that you’ll check out the first Neen Ford short story, Dead Wasps, available at Amazon, B & N and Smashwords. And anyone who cares to talk to me can reach me at neenford@gmail.com or on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/scottneenford). 

Thanks for stopping by and sharing some ways to impress Neen today!
Overton Scott is the pseudonym of a national bestselling author. Overton is interested in a lot of themes covered in the Neen Ford stories: martial arts, the warrior ethos, personal responsibility, and the concept of justice. Like Neen, Overton doesn’t think that the guilty should escape punishment on this earth. Unlike Neen, Overton prefers to write stories rather than take the law into his own hands. It’s just as morally satisfying, but less dangerous.

As you are reading this, Overton should be working on the next Neen Ford adventure. But he’s probably at the gym, shooting or wasting time looking at funny pictures on the internet. You can contact him at neenford@gmail.com, if you’d like to discuss any aspect of the Neen Ford stories.
