Paris Peace Plot To Be Remembered:
This weekend we celebrated Veteran’s Day. It has now been 99 years since the end of World War 1, or the Great War, the War to End All Wars. Next year on Sunday, November 11, 2018 it will be the one hundredth anniversary of the end of the war.
On May 1, 2015 Cheops Books LLC published Key to Lawrence: Special Edition to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Lusitania on May 7, 1915, the event that brought America into World War 1 two years later on April 6, 1917. On Sunday, November 11, 2018 it will publish the Paris Peace Plot. This edition of the historical thriller will commemorate the official end of the war when Big Ben tolled in London all day. But it will also commemorate the months lead up to the peace conference, the Paris Peace Conference, where the world leaders negotiated the treaty that all would sign to formally end the Great War.
The Kindle edition of the novel Paris Peace Plot will be available on Sunday, November 11, 2018, Armistice Day. But the audible edition will wait until the beginning of the following year, 2019. On Friday, January 18, 2019, one hundred years since the opening of the Paris Peace Conference where Clemenceau, Lloyd George, and Woodrow Wilson met to hammer out terms and to eventually sign the agreement at the Palace of Versailles, thus called the Versailles Treaty as well as the Paris Peace Treaty. Each edition of Paris Peace Plot will have its own special cover as well as companion essays talking about the event. It might also have many other special illustrations
Just as the Paris Peace Treaty had great implications for the history of the world, Dora meets a saboteur in Paris — unknown before that moment — who will have great implications for the future of the Edward Ware Thriller Series.

Wilson to Trump: 100 Years War:
Is The End Of Terrorism Near?
In the Edward Ware Thriller Series Dora and Edward are always reflecting that Hitler is everywhere and they can’t escape him — a kind of terrorism. And if it’s not Hitler it is Hitler’s spies or earlier the Kaiser’s spies looking for the fabled Lawrence maps, key to world domination. Dora finds a saboteur in her shed in Pittsburgh in the South Hills. She ends up having to shoot him herself. At other times saboteurs interrupt them on the beach outside New York City, Coney Island. At another time the spies find them in a cabin in the woods outside Santa Fe, New Mexico. They follow them to Yellowstone. They steal items from their house in England at Ware Hall. There is nowhere Dora and Edward can go in the world to be safe.
Oddly enough it feels like that right now for real in the US and the world in general. Terrorists nowadays might not be after the Lawrence maps. But they seem to be after YOU and everybody else just to make a political point or whatever. Starting two years ago they focused on scaring everybody in Europe. It all seemed to have to do with the migrant crisis. More refugees were on the move than at any time since World War 2. But because Europe, particularly Germany, opened its doors to them Europe now seems to be vulnerable to terrorists in a big way. The Mediterranean in particular seems to be a hotbed of unrest. If you can say that the migrant crisis helped to lead to Brexit, then it helps to explain by there was just recently a confrontation at Gibraltar between England and Spain, the entrance to the Mediterranean. Apparently migrants have used the Mediterranean to cross in boats. The French Riviera town of Nice was shot up in a big way. And now we have Trump launching missiles from a ship in the Mediterranean, making it a war zone, not just a zone of terrorism.
Even if Trump’s missile strike helps to deter the use of chemical and biological weapons by big states, it does not do much to deter terrorism. In the days before the strike there was a terrorist attack in London on Westminster Bridge. The day AFTER the missile strike, another terrorist struck in Stockholm of all places. What is a terrorist doing in Stockholm in Scandanavia? You would think it would be the last place they would go. Are they going to appear in Oslo or Copenhagen next? Is there no place safe? The top of Mt. Everest? The North Pole?
Hopefully the terrorist situation will be resolved somehow during the next few years. I view it as the last stage of the Great War which has turned out to be a 100 years war indeed. All the liberation movements and revolutions that it unleashed have to become history someday. That some day should be soon. But somebody like Trump will have to take the lead. His opening volley is good. He made a big splash with his missile strike. But the big question is what will he do next?
