Rebels copy
    rebelsRebels The world is on fire. From the ashes like a phoenix rises a new America, one that will save it all. Under one condition; absolute and complete surrender. The world complies without question. Those who don’t are destroyed. It is in this world, John is born. His very name is treason. If the New America, now known to everyone as the State, knew what John was, they’d kill him, but instead they give him a gift.

  Praise for Rebels John has a lot of potential (especially for someone so young) in that he sees the flaws in this society. He wants to be like George Washington and knows a lot about the manner in which a government should be run... Highly recommended. ~Amazon Review   Scott and Judith Powell About the Authors Scott Powell was born in Burlington, Vermont, to a father who was a police officer and a mother who emigrated from South Korea.

Creating Fighting Scenes

Scott Powell here co-author of Rebels

Since I can remember my father has been involved in martial arts.  He started when he was in the Air Force and took Tae Kwon Do where he became a second degree black belt.  He later became very involved in Kick Boxing and then started to learn other styles where he eventually landed into Reality Based Street Fighting. 
So through those years I became one of his students that was lucky enough to be experimented on over the years in which I learned different fighting styles.   With those experiences I simply translated them into the fighting scenes of Rebels.  Obviously some of the scenes are embellished based on the fact that characters have enhanced abilities.
Writing the fighting scenes was one of my favorite parts of the book feeling it helped the story evolve and bring the characters alive.

Below is one of Judith’s favorite fight scenes:

They circle me forever. Finally, David lunges at me, trying to grab me while another comes from behind. I tuck my chin down, so he is unable to put me in a choke hold while I raise my right leg and thrust it forward, as if to kick a door in, and plant it right into David’s gut. He is blown back, right onto the ground. Knowing there is a third assailant, I quickly grab the arm around my throat and jerk down like my father had taught me and slip my head to my right, through an opening I had created, and pull him toward me. I proceed to knee him multiple times while using him as a shield between me and my other opponent.
            Even with the gear stuff, I know I have caused enough damage to incapacitate this young soldier, and I prepare to engage his companion. I have angered them, which is good. My dad always said if I can get someone to become emotional I have already won because they are not thinking with a clear mind. The third opponent rushes me with no technique. I grab the back of his head, controlling his movement, and put him into a front choke hold. He immediately taps out, knowing it will only be seconds before blackness overwhelms him.
            Now it’s only David and me, and he is still very furious remembering how I’d humiliated him and more importantly, he believes I have taken his rightful place, being the number one cadet. But David is skilled and has not forgotten our past encounters and does not look to rush me so quickly like the others. To my surprise, David steps to the side of the ring and picks up an aged metal bar off the ground. I quickly look to our leader, and his face gives no indication what David is doing is against the rules. Obviously, this new program from the State literally means no rules and even with this gear, the metal bar could do some considerable damage.

The quilted, insulted fabric mitt with elastic cuff is very durable and will keep you warm on those cold snowy days. This mitten is one of my favorite winter products that I have reviewed. Not only is the
mitten warm and cozy, it also gives you plenty of room to grasp the scraper within and hold it tight.

99.9% of Ice Scrapers that you buy at stores today provided no warmth for your hands on the
bone chilling days. The last thing you want to do in the morning is wake up and venture out to
your snow or ice covered vehicle and start scraping away, only to have to stop a few minutes later
because your hands were freezing from no gloves or not enough glove protection. The Buffalo
Plaid Scraper Mitten is made from a quilted insulated fabric with elastic cuff to keep you warm
all winter long.

The absolute best sauces on the planet. Each individual flavor is unique
and will leave you wanting more. The Barbecue sauce makes you meat
nothing short of mouth watering. Check out Coutry Bob's website for
new and mouth watering recipes that will make everyone wanting seconds.
