These days when Tom Abrahams is not reporting or anchoring the news on Houston TV, you'll probably find him writing books.

Abrahams, who is prepping for the release of his second novel, has put himself on a consistent writing schedule. He writes about 600 to 1000 words a day before leaving the house!

Tom Abrahams' "Allegiance" borrows from TV career

His first book, the self-published Sedition: A Political Thriller, is getting positive reviews with one comparing Abrahams to Tom Clancy.

The book made the Amazon best sellers list in the US, UK, Canada, France and Germany, selling copies in nine countries.

Next up for Abrahams is Allegiance, which will be published by Post Hill Press.

"As I was finishing my second novel (Allegiance), an editor who I contracted to work on both books recommended me to a small publishing house based in Nashville, TN and NYC," Abrahams told "The publisher called me from NY and told me that he'd read SEDITION, loved it, and wanted to buy the rights."

With a new publisher behind him, Abrahams' Sedition: A Political Thriller was released as an e-book in September with new pages and a re-edit. It will also come out in hardcover this January. Allegiance will also be released in January as both an e-book and hardcover.

"It's a great next step as I moved from independent to traditionally published author," Abrahams told me. "The books will be available at e-book retailers online (Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble and Kobo) and the hardcovers will be available at brick and mortar stores."

So what's up next for Abrahams in the literary world? He tells me he has four more books in the planning stages and all of them are political thrillers.
