Hello everybody! Yes, I am still alive and so are my wife and kids. A “Funny” thing happened on the way to experiencing an earthquake, a hurricane and a tornado all in the span of four days. Why is that “Funny”? Well let’s see, I can really write pages on this subject. In fact I have, and they are in the able hands of Big Daddy Abel the guy that let me jazz with him on “The Edge of Cataclysmic”. The Author’s Lab/Collaboration story just wrote itself for me. I started with the flood we had in…Continue

A serial killer is on the loose in Chicago. He's on a mission from God to clean up the church after the abuse scandal. (some naughty languate and graphic violence)

-Did you enjoy the research or the writing more on this novel?
Normally I don't enjoy research, but in the case of THE PARADISE PROPHECY I had a lot of fun with it. Looking into the history of ancient documents like The Devil's Bible and Steganographia was not only fascinating, but also had a great influence on the direction, scope and depth of the story itself.
What is your writing style? Are you an extensive outliner or do you just do it all organically as it comes to…Continue

Other than this forum (which is great), what are some your favorite blogs or websites to promote your books? I'm new to ebooks and I'm still learning ebook marketing. I've spent hours on Google and have some ideas, like Kindle Forums, but that doesn't seem like enough.
I'm getting a little panicked because my first book will be available next month and I want to have great launch and a great follow up. Also, I want to promote it without irritating people.
My website is…Continue

(Wild Bill will be available for Amazon Kindle On August 29; other formats to follow. )
Not to sound arrogant or conceited, but Wild Bill shares qualities with the greatest American fiction, writers such as Hemingway, Faulkner, and Twain. Words. Sentences, Paragraphs. Chapters. Grammar, for Chrissake.
And characters. Lots of them. Here’s the lowdown on a few.
Willard “Wild Bill” Hickox. Born…Continue
Happy Monday to everybody! Okay, stop grumbling, a new week has started; let’s get rolling. I ask every author I get the privilege to speak with, “What is your style: do you outline?, Do you just go with your idea? Do you do a little of both?” Basically I have come to the conclusion that each is different no matter what and the style choices are just as individual as snowflakes. I get to ask Joel Andre this same question a little later on today on my blogtalk radio show The…Continue

The world is filled with tomorrows and none are worth a damn, at least for me. Tomorrow has some bit of hope attached. Things will be better tomorrow. I’ll have a decent job and a good solid wife. Tomorrow I’ll have my health back or a brand new baby boy or a string of ponies. (“Desert Reckoning”, Trey R. Barker, page 81)
The anthology “On Dangerous Ground: Stories of Western Noir” is filled with 21 stories by 21 very talented authors. The…Continue
